Favorite drill layout for every ball
« on: April 14, 2018, 04:15:27 AM »
Hey guys, just wondering if anyone has used their favorite layout for every bowling ball in arsenal? My favorite layout is (righty) 5 1/2 pin above mid finger x 4 mb just rt of thumb, no hole, which works for my slow speed. Currently rebuilding a storm/rg arsenal and was thinking of doing this. Wondering if anyone has had success using same favorite layout for every ball? I remember reading in one of the posts that some of the tour guys do this. Any thoughts?

Not one, but I do use two.  I have one for pin up, and one for pin down layouts.  After drilling lots of balls over the years I kinda' stick with what works for me and quit experimenting. 

Now I can eliminate layout from the equation and just match up the surface to get where I need.  I guess the only remaining mystery is what I do to the ball (which is the BIGGEST inconsistency).

Usually, I go on symmetrical

5*40 or 5*65

Reason for no first angle is because I don't like extra holes. Also, I feel that angle is useless on symms.

Assyms

50*5*65
60*5*40

Assyms I will tweak the drill angle a little depending on how I am feeling.

Pin-pap 4 1/4"

For a control layout I go with 2 3/4' and normally put a hole on my PAP

I use the same Layout on virtually every ball, and my success rate is at approximately 90/95%;  I know longer will ‘Fix what’s not broken’  with any other layouts.

I use the same layouts on all my stuff now also and higher rg equipment. only difference is the cover's. different layouts for my urethane though.
in the bag now is a pin down HyNano,pin down street fight,pin down honey badger pin down roto grip venus ,pin up thunderflash and a pin up avalanche pearl urethane. couldn't be happier with my arsenal.
I've had success with other layouts but these have been the most consistant.
The harder I try the harder they fall

Thanks for all the response guys. Six pack I’m right there with you on the high rg balls. Benchmark ball is hyroad, and just drilled a nano and have a hyroad pearl on order. Love the two piece fe2 high rg core of the roads. Smooth and continuous for my game.
