Three Weight Hole Questions...VAL, 8" and MoHole
on: January 15, 2014, 08:54:22 PM
1) the dif between VAL line weight holes and Gradient weight hole lines

2) on a Roto Grip webcast with CDB as a host, they showed her Uproar and Asylum drilled up and mentioned a 8" weight hole, which she said increased her continuation.
8" from what please?

3) if one is drilling a MoTion Hole and it lands on the serial number....now what?

+1. With John P. And I will add that gradient line holes are more suited for asyms, you'll do more with those than holes down the VAL.

1.) Yea, his numbers are like a little less than 300 total, counting the unsanctioned ones.

3.) with my axis rotation and mid to lower speed, I like using shorter pin to PAP's, my BM is 85x3.25"x45 on syms(basic label) and 75x3.5x35 on asyms. I can adjust the VAL angle bigger on asyms for stronger or smoother balls. I like to use P2-P3's, I only used DT holes on weaker balls.

5.) The bowtie will adjust with the flare of the ball. More flare, wider bowtie, more ball coverage. I will tell you I'm not fully informed enough to tell you anymore than that.

John P and Rightycomplex,

Thanks for your answers.  3.25 pin to PAP!  Wow, on the shots I've seen in your area I could see some of those pins.  On our friction.....hmmm?

Regarding Lewis Watson.  How many sanctioned would you guess?

Yea, That short pin distance works on most patterns with the right ball and surface. The objective is to get the ball rolling early and getting it to roll forward for a bit longer. It also helps recover on off tosses. On asyms, it helps reduce flare and makes the asym usable on THS.

As far as Louis goes, I'm pretty sure it's around 175 sanctioned. He reeled off 20 in a row to start a league set this season and finished with 793. I think he's got 5-300's and 2-800's already this season just from what I know.

Righty,

That 3.25 pin to pap distance still works for me if I can find some oil, but I don't find much of it too often anymore.

I had just pulled out my beloved 3 3/8 Crimson Red Sledgehammer around here recently and just really couldn't get too much out of it here...of course my angles are much different as it is pin down...mb on VAL

Hmmm Something to thing about....
