I keep two layouts and for the last 6/7 years - long and strong/skid snap. Bowled at the same house for 10+ years.... My game has changed over the years and these two layouts has become over under with some patterns outside this house. Or controlling flying backend becomes a struggle.
The house I'll be moving to has screaming backend. My LT-48 which is somewhat smooth at one house I bowl leagues. But it's a hockey stick at this particular house I bowl frequently lately. (4k/Secret sauce) I had to bring it to 1k just to smooth out the backend.
I recently had a talk with one of BR's original legends who no longer post here for some time. He mentioned about having a shorter pin to pap layout, but because were bowling a tourney together, he didn't get into detail. I never owned a ball with less than 4" pin layout and I don't really understand it, only it has lower flare and keeps core stable early??
I'm guessing pin down near center grip can achieve an earlier smoother reaction or blend out over under. help me under stand these low and/or short layouts...
