Looks to me like it should go long and flip depending on where your PAP is.

If the bowler's PAP is in the normal range, say, greater than 4 1/2" over, then it seems made for medium light oil. This pin will allow less flare than a more normal pin placement, if it is truly over the middle finger. If the bowler's PAP is very low, like 3 1/2" over, then this could still be a strong drilling.

So unless you have the bowler's release specs, it's hard to say what it would really do.

So the ball will save more energy and flip harder with the CG in the grip  center ?

Balls react according to your release specs. Yes, that drilling will, IN GENERAL, cause a flippy reaction AND/OR will allow it to handle lighter oil than that for which the ball was designed.

Pin/CG/MB placements must be given in relation to the bowler's PAP and midline in order to have some sense of how it will react. NOT in relation to the finger holes. Sorry, but that's life.
