Re: crux prime

Re: crux prime layout 42' med heavy oil

may look into that physix. On a side not my pso and team mate suggest trying a asymmetrical for better lay out possibilities. Previous try was not high enough total.

Re: hustle ink layout for short oil low volume dry

finally drilled this ball, pin 5.5" p2p, 45 to the val. awesome easy length. with a nice bump on back end. Think I'll wet sand 3 or 4k. great for going up the lane and not swinging a bunch of boards. it does not like oil or carry down just like the columbia full throttle 2.5" p2p I had just fixed. d...

thumb, finger hole depth = ball reaction

Beings balance hole is no longer legal. I don't use them anyway. In laymens terms 1) Ball reaction having a deep thumb hole. 2) Ball reaction of fingers drilled deep 3) Ball reaction if one finger drilled deeper than the other. I am plugging and moving the thumb hole about 1/4" down/longer span on a...

Re: IT vs Switch Grip

I have switch grips. 1st four that were that were drilled the tabs on them broke. Of course at a tourney in another city and no other house uses them. After close examination I determined that the pso drilled down too deep and got into the inner sleeve. He replaced them at no cost and was more caref...

Re: hustle ink layout for short oil low volume dry

In short, flare reducing layout on high diff ball or lower diff ball needs some pin length to help on late midlane.

What pso's always gave me in the past was a high and increasing flare layout on every ball i bought till now. Thanks to this website and current pso that will never happen again.

Re: Pin to pap symmetrical ball only, curiosity, non 2 finge

Got It, Thanks. was Mostly bout the 3oz rule no balance hole. So the the cg will still need to fall somewhere between the pap's pos and neg axis points "horizontal", and fingers and thumb hole "vertical". Based on how much top weight the ball has, and the final layout/drilling the customer want's th...

Pin to pap symmetrical ball only, curiosity, non 2 finger

Noob Thinking out loud bout Mo's cg don't matter videos. Just curios. So basically if a person wants a 5" pin to pap one could just draw a 5" circle completely around the pin then continue with the val line, and then center of grip line in accordance with the persons actual pap measurements.
