One comment on this...
It was said that the individual used the layout on the wrong ball or defeated the purpose...I am not sure what this meant, but if I assume that the bowler used the layout on a skid flip type ball and this was wrong. When Parker won last year in NC, he used the layout on a Twisted Fury Pearl. I believe, if I remember correctly, that ball was designed and advertised as skid flip. It seemed to work there.
And at one time or another, I used this layout on every ball made by Brunswick, over the past 5 years or so and they are known as rollier type equipment, wouldn't that defeat the purpose?
Bowling balls and layouts enhance a bowler's attributes, as well as a ball's dynamics, no more no less.
