LAYOUT OF THE FUTURE
90 X 2 1/4 X 45
use strong asy., 360-500 surface, stay right

SKID-FLIP ASY. DRILLING - VERY VERSATILE DRILLING
75 X 3 X 25

Since the new USBC standards have been released, there has been much discussion as to what to do.
Several people have stated that the above 2 layouts are the answer. Does this mean that we drill a strong asy. ball using one of the above layouts, with 2" finger holes and deep thumb, adjust the surface and off to the lanes? Do we still need the bowlers info to properly recommend a feasible layout?
I would love to hear from Eric and MegaMav and anyone who understands the dynamics of balls. Or
do we just wait to see what Mo recommends for his Radical equipment? It seems to me that a bowler with speed of 18 mph, 290 rev. rate, and high tilt would never get the ball to transition with those high drilling angles. You can't recommend the earlier layouts for everyone can you? Is surface the key?

IMO there is no static layout of the future.
Everything is still relative to the bowler's release, and I'll continue to use a SYSTEM to accommodate a customer's needs.

I am anxiously waiting to see the new recommended layouts from Radical.

When the system calls for keeping the angles and ratio lower, how do symmetric balls get layed out?

buy assymmetrical balls if you need small angles or lower ratios.

Turns out Lane Side Reviews already tested the LAYOUT OF THE FUTURE!!!, only without the ridiculously rough surface:



From what I know of Mo he'd say drag it across the parking lot if you have to for your "18 mph, 290 rev. rate, and high tilt" guy. Not sure why he likes surface so much, but he does. Might further smooth out a sport shot I guess.
