I've picked up a couple of new balls to try on the cheetah that starts in about 1-1/2 weeks.
Would greatly appreciate layout advise. Thanks.

Being speed dominant should help you on Cheetah but your high rotation will be your nemesis.
Playing with lower rotation would be my recommendation.

The Purple Hammer has a very weak core. Layout for it is most about pin to PAP to control how much flare it will have. 4" pin to PAP will give you the most flare and minimize carrydown. This will give you an earlier read of the lane. Going with 5 to 5 1/2" pin to PAP will be very little flare and create more carrydown. The ball will travel further down the lane and hook less.

xx-4-30 ................ max flare strongest reaction
xx-5.5-35 ............. min flare weakest reaction

The Columbia 300 eruption pro blue, this ball has a little stronger core but not by much.
xx-4.5-40
I suggest adding a little surface to the Eruption. You will be playing out by the gutter and need some surface to keep the ball from skidding too long and into the ditch.
