Is it recommended to use the same layout I have on my honey badger for this ball too? Will it give me a different line? Would this be the best choice? If anyone has a suggestion I would love to hear it!

Well, the core is different, and even though the intermediate diff is .008, I'd imagine the Badger is going to have more of a rounded shape.

*If* I punch one, I'd probably go 50*5.5*65 with it. My honey badger is going to be 60*4.5*30

Bowlingball.com saying heavy oil with a hybrid S71 and med diff. Hmm kind of doubt it for me at least. So far only recent 2 piece seen can truly handle heavy oil for my style is the green quantum. Even my warlock is medium heavy tops. Badger will own THS more than likely.  Still if had to choose glad to have the honey badger.  Not a lot of asym 2 piece that you can use on the drier side of medium or when you need to get real deep on THS after some transition.  Not sure I see a need for an asym hybrid 2 piece on THS but shoot a year from now will probably own it anyway.   Does look sharp and got that mid range pricing I love.

I'll bet the middle finger on my right hand that this is not a "heavy oil' ball.

A ball with a bigger engine and same cover isn't even considered a heavy oil ball.

Bowling ball.com is just there to sell you a ball lol.

A polished S70 coverstock with an RG of 2.57 is not likely to be used for heavy oil for very many people outside of Jesper Svenson and Belmonte. I'd suggest medium light to medium oil for most people, unless you sanded the coverstock.
