Only references I can find for lane pattern shim is here:

Edited to add:

From the THS article:

Remember, the secret is to find the "shim". What is the "shim"? The shim is the portion of the lane pattern that allows you to "pull" the shot a couple of boards and still hit the pocket.

Don't you get 10 minutes for 10 people?  How can one person destroy the hold in 2-3 shots?

Not getting into specifics. Whether it is Team event or SD, your guys bowl together as a group.

I bowl where I find the best ball reaction.  I could care less what everybody else wants.

Bowling 300 900,
     With kind of philosphy, you will never contend for an Eagle, that's for sure. Plus, you will have 9 very pissed teammates that probably won't ask you back next year.
 
Good for you!! [/sarcasm off]

I don't play carve the lane and I could care less about winning an eagle.  If my team wins we win, if we don't we don't.   We don't play tricks with the lane pattern.

I agree with 24899 that working together as a team is key in both Team and Minors. I know many don't believe in this process but i can tell you it does work.

Bowling 300 900,
    Since when is working together as a team "playing tricks"? With this lousy of an attitude, I'm surprised anyone at all would even want you on their team.
 
Plus your statement of "...I could care less about winning an Eagle" is one of the dumbest I have ever heard. I may never win an Eagle, or even have a very good chance of doing it, but it is still a goal I have every year I go to the USBC Open. Why not just stay home if that isn't your goal, and besides with your selfish attitude others would be better off with you not there anyway.

Sorry Jorge, when your name somehow gets on my birth certificate than I will listen to what you have to say.   Until then,  blah blah blah blah blah. 

I don't believe in pattern carving or any of that mumbo jumbo they do.   If I wreck your shim tough sh$t!   


Now just because you heard somebody talk about wrecking the shim,  we gotta run to ball reviews and make a post about how somebody wrecked their lane condition blah blah blah.

Let's get real here

Bowling 300 900,
     With that kind of an attitude, I bet your coaches love you, "You don't know what you are talking about...blah blah blah". I see why you don't care about an Eagle, you must suck at this sport since you won't listen to anyone but yourself. I can just see you on league night....washout after washout, open after open...your teammate says "if you move 5 boards you will have great shot".....your response " Leave me alone, I'm not listening to you...blah blah blah" and you continue to shoot 400. ROFLMAO.....you are a tool and a half. Have fun being a idiot, cause that is the best you will ever do in life with this attitude.
