Layout help for Nationals

Post by Progmtl » April 27th, 2015, 5:53 pm

Been looking through the wiki and reading Mo's info on how to play the lanes this year. I know I fall into the "high" tilt category and I think I also fall into the "higher revs, lower rotation" category (if I'm wrong please let me know).

I have a few pin down balls (I'm a Motiv guy...mostly higher flaring...Jackal, 2 Forzas and a Primal Rage). I was thinking about getting a Venom Shock (to go more towards Mo's suggestion of lower flaring balls).

If I was reading the wiki information correctly I was thinking of doing something like a 40*2.5*40 (1:1 ratio that I noticed in the chart).

Any input or advice from the layout guru's on here would be most appreciated.

I'm not a Motiv expert, but your layout makes sense if the balls perform.
