2 Bowlers looking for layout advice

Post by Mbrobst14 » May 1st, 2019, 2:22 am

Hello,

Was hoping Eric could recommend some layouts for a few of my friends. Everything that you have recommended for me has worked great all season thanks again for the help!

Bowler 1
Right handed
17mph off his hand
RPM-360
PAP- 3 5/8 -> 5/8 down
Initial Axis Rotation- 75*
Axis Tilt- 40* (measured his initial track ring diameter he's a spin biscuit)
What surface you want the ball for- Synthetic
What lane condition you are bowling on most of the time - House shot
He has a original SoniQ that he is looking for a layout on currently.


Bowler 2
Right handed
16 mph off his hand
RPM-300
PAP- 4 3/8-> 5/8 up
