See attached image.  Basically for a Spinner you want to put the pin an inch or two right of the center grip and put the mass bias below and to the left of the thumb (for symmetric balls use the theoretical mass bias 6.75" from the pin through the cg.

The PAP of a spinner could be just about anywhere.  Like all style of players, it should be measured accurately by one of many methods (I prefer using an Armadillo)...

Any suggestions for layouts for spinners.

Depends on the desired ball motion, the lane conditions and how much more specific information I can get about how the intended player throws the ball.  The term "spinner" is just too generic!
Good Luck & Good Bowling!

I agree, too generic....Get us a tilt measurement, rotation, revs and speed and we could probably give better recommendations. Tilt will tell us how much of a spinner we are talking about
Hyper Cell.................40x5x35
Disturbed..................50x4x65
Hysteria....................45x4x65
Venon Shock.............50x4x40
Nomad.....................50x5x70
Lights Out.................40x4x60
Lane 1 Cherry SOS.....50x4x25

Was just curious as i've been told im a spinner. My track until recently was 3 5/8 and I thought someone with a low track would normally be considered a spinner but guess theres more to it than that.
