Welcome to BowlingChat

I always start by figuring the Benchmark with a basic arsenal list.
You are slightly speed dominant with med/high tilt and rotation.
Totals 80* 1:1.5 Ratio

Asymmetrical Layouts ...
Totally Strong .............. 30-5-30
Midlane ...................... 20-4.5-40
Benchmark ................. 30-4.5-50
Long and Strong .......... 50-4-50
Control ....................... 30-4-70
low flare ..................... 50-2.25-50

Symmetrical Layouts ...
Long and Strong ........ xx-3-45
Control ...................... xx-3.75-65 (pin in the Ring finger)

For a house shot I would recommend the Long and Strong and Control layouts
I would go with the Control layout on the Kingpin 30-4-70
As for the Street Fight xx-3-45 for the long and Strong

Thanks Eric,
I appreciate you responding so quickly to my post.
Took your advise and had them both drilled up this morning.
I may get to try them out tomorrow, if not, Thursday for sure.
I'll let you know how it went.

I've enjoyed good success with the drillings you recommended.
I've thrown 10 games, the top two scores with the Street Fight are 286 & 240, the Kingpin 258 & 219 with an o/a average of 210.

I do have another question: I just bought the Radical Ludicrous (asym) and was wondering which drilling you recommend for that ball, the benchmark, low flare or other?

Thanks.

The low flare layout is risky for your release specifically your higher tilt and rotation. It would definitely be a condition specific ball, dryer lanes.
The Benchmark layout will be a strong angular backend reaction.

I would go with benchmark totals with a control ratio. 25-4-55 (pin in the ring finger)
