Layout Assistance Please

Post by Bowl844 » December 1st, 2019, 6:43 pm

Team,

I've always had cookie cutter layouts based upon drill sheets with not the best PSOs over the years. I've recently taught myself to layout and just figured my own PAP. It is 4 3/8 over and 1/2 up. I haven't done the other calculations yet, but I am right handed, have a medium track, and an speed/rev matched. I typically bowl on THS with older synthetic lanes with a decent amount of friction. I've reverse engineered my current arsenal, and attached are the numbers. I love the shape of the Baller's drilling and will use that as my benchmark drilling I think. I'm going to drill a Phantom, and want it a little later with a little less midlane for a bench mark ball. Any thoughts even though I'm missing some of the other personal calculations? I have a spinner to play with surface, and I have another Pink to punch when I get this all squared away.

Thank you in advance.

Axis tilt would be good.

Posting a video at lane level behind the shot line, I can estimate.
