Also good to know:

1
“Sanding against (across) the initial track will make the ball more aggressive early and have less bit down the lane. Early roll, mild backend.
2
Sanding with the initial track, will help the ball skate through the head portion of the lane with a more aggressive move at the back end of the lane. More length, more finish.
3
Sanding at the “bow tie” of the track will be the most aggressive early on the lane while toning down the overall reaction. Most arc, least snap, early and even roll.
4
Cross sanding at a 90 degree angle to the original sanding will give the most consistent reaction from bowler to bowler. This is the most common of all sanding techniques.
