Length: 44 feet

This pattern forces bowlers to play deep inside the center of the lanes, like sharks that troll the depths of the ocean.

Shark is the longest of the five patterns, measuring 44 feet of oil. Typical to the length and design, professionals will migrate more towards the center of the lane as the ball normally will not hook back to the pocket if it strays too far outside near the gutter. This pattern usually requires extreme inside angles to get to the pocket after five or six games. The scoring pace is normally high for this pattern.
