I know that oil can affect the way a reactive ball travels down the lane.

Subject: Effects of Oil on a Polyester Ball
Can this also affect a polyester/plastic ball that is thrown straight (end
over end roll)? My friend throws a polyester ball and can for the most
part make the single or multi pin conversions. However, during league play
after a game or so, sometimes his shot will either veer left or right of
target, missing quite a bit.
I've had the same thing happen to me at times when I throw my White Dot
(palm facing the pins). What's the cause of this? Is it a result of the
oil being pushed down the lane that's throwing his shot off alignment? I
thought polyester balls weren't so much affected by oil, am I mistaken?
