Low Flare drilling
on: February 21, 2011, 05:48:10 AM
  I would like to now what some of you are doing for a low flaring layout. What type of ball symmetric or asymmetric? If you are looking curtain RG or Differential? If you would use a solid or a pearl coverstock? Let me know we have a be discussion going on at the pro shop here.

Your question prompts more questions than answers, mainly what purpose will the ball serve and what conditions will it be used on, but what I will say is this:

I will normally use a symmetrical ball as I can move the pin either far from or close  to the axis to cut flare, depending on how rolly I want it.

Coverstock, RG and Diff chosen on the basis of the condition I intend to use it on, but lower diff balls have a lower flare potential to begin with.

I would need to know more about the intended use to help more.
