I was thinking about getting this Magazine but now not sure.
They send me emails about the content of their next issue and the one upcoming about lane surfaces is incorrect, It does not concur with study results from the past.
They say that a wood surface has a higher friction than the synthetics. They do not specify if this is a wood lane with no coating and no oil, because this would have to be the case for that statement to have any validity .
Does anyone subscribe to this magazine and/ or have a contact number for them ?

I have no knowledge of this mag. As for surfaces, a wood lane with epoxy urethane finish might not be much different thsn synthetic. It gets tricky because cof is different on both surfaces between oiled section and back ends

right, when the oil is heavy enough the co-efficient is zero for any ball sliding on it.

My opinion is that the magazine is a compilation of opinions from self proclaimed experts.

I bought a few Bowling Journal mags a few years ago. It was pretty good for
articles on the players but I didn't pay much attention to the advice. Had to
drive too far to buy it so soon gave up on it
