Layout Tools
« on: November 21, 2018, 09:41:20 PM »
Little different question for this forum, but I think it fits. What tools do you use to transcribe a layout on the ball?

Looking more towards something I can use at home starting out, nothing really fancy. Are the plastic options like the PowerHouse Mass Bias Layout Tool (link below) worth buying or is it just a cheap toy that's not very accurate? I'm not real familiar with these kind of things so any feedback is much appreciated.

Never used the PowerHouse Mass Bias Layout Tool but it looks like it would work okay, $19 is a pretty good price.

I use the Turbo Pro-sect, it's what you typically see in the proshop.

You might want to look at the  Motion Enhancement Guide for how it's used:

Looks like a great option that does the same or more as other quarter scales at half  to a third the price.

It's a tool you use to draw the layout on a ball before drilling.

Thanks Coor. I was expecting it to be something that indicated the theoretical relative changes of various layouts as positioned on the ball. This makes more sense.

powerhouse has a software tool that Will do what you want to do, but it is only for EBI balls and costs around $1000.  Storm vector layout is a spreadsheet tool that Will do what you want to do, without the graphics.  It is free.

Thanks for the correction.  I haven't looked at it for a long time.  I was going from a bad memory.
