Would this be an accurate understanding of why which layout on which ball? Kind of
use the Results to amplify what it is made to do, use the Solid for benchmark as it shouldn't have trouble reading the lane considering my speed dominant nature, and calm the Trailblazer down a bit in the control spot?
The Results is a long and strong type ball so Put the Long and Strong layout on it, You don't want to start the core too early and start working against what you want it to do.
Yes the Solid as a benchmark using the friction of the dull cover to get the ball rolling sooner. It is a Strong layout.
The Trainblazer when you look at the core numbers is a weaker core, Ideal for the placement in this arsenal as a Control piece.
Using surface prep to dial in your skin length.
When to use each. This is what I have no confidence in my understanding of:
L&S - THS as the lanes transition and the BM is starting to cross over the head pin? Med/heavy to Long Sport conditions where a fast read off the spot is needed?
BM - pretty much start every session to get a sense of the lanes and pattern and adjust accordingly. Yes
Control - THS is playing Wet/Dry, Over/Under? Drier lane conditions? Shorter sport patterns? Need the ball to not be super fast reading the dry? Yes
So a typical THS night might start with the BM, move to the L&S 2nd/3rd game, then down to the Control if the L&S gets too touchy? Something like that? Maybe?
Sometimes I will go Benchmark, Control and then move in Deep with the Long and Strong. Kind of like what you mention below
Where a sport night might go from the RS to the TB to add a little length/later BP and might not see the L&S on certain types of patterns? And vice versa.
I'll get the Results Solid drilled up first, then do a Tilt/Rev/Speed analysis in case I'm deviating enough to alter the other layouts. As I try to do the math, looks like 55 x 35 on a BM works regardless if I'm at 10* or 12.5*, yet the others might change. So seems prudent to find out how much tilt I'm able to maintain before drilling up all 3.
Grip changes affect release specs as well as changing weights.
If you are thinking grip change I would be trying it on an older ball and Recheck your release specs.
Then drill up the new equipment with the new grip and release specs.
I don't mind readjusting my recommendations.
