Question about Double Thumb layouts & high tilts. Taken from: viewtopic.php?t=544

On players with that high a tilt, I put the PSA 1 1/2" right of the right edge of the thumb (for right handers) and figure out the drilling angle. The 4" pin to PAP distance and the 30* VAL angle don't change. This puts the balance hole into the PSA and decreases the drilling angle to compensate for the added tilt.

High rev bowler will hit balance holes. taken from: viewtopic.php?f=15&t=9201

As a rev dominant player, I can understand it happening. I've seen it many times. Just draw the gradient line on the ball and mark the P3 and P2 positions. Make a decision as to what gradient line position you want to use. Now mark that position on the gradient line. Draw a line through that point perpendicular to the gradient line. Place the hole on that line at a distance closer to the grip that you feel will allow for the increased flare (not hitting the hole). Start with a small hole and increase the size, if you'd like, monitoring the flare.

Taken from viewtopic.php?t=793 (see #6)

To get an angular backend on dry lanes, you want a large drilling angle and a small VAL angle with reduced flare. Precisely, 75 to 90* drilling angle with a 20 to 30* VAL angle. Use a pin to PAP distance of 1 3/4" to 2 1/2" on asyms. depending on your style; 4 1/2" to 5 1/2" pin to PAP distance for syms., again, depending on your style.

Core density, inner core volume and especially core shape have everything to do with how drillings and balance holes affect ball motion.

CORE SHAPE DETERMINES BALL MOTION!!!!!! An axiom of Radical Ball Technologies!

As the developer of Radical's "finger scoop" and being listed on the US Patent application as the inventor, I guess it's appropriate for me to comment.

The finger scoop was developed to increase the versatility of drilled balls. If one of these balls is drilled with the pin above the fingers, the fingers holes will only minimally penetrate the core, allowing the core to maintain it's undrilled core height. This produces a sharper, shorter breakpoint for the drilled ball. If one of these balls is drilled with the pin below the fingers, the fingers holes will substantially penetrate the core, reducing the height of the core compared to the undrilled ball. That results in a ball with a smoother, longer breakpoint.

That should sum it up!

Mo's response to a question about where a 24* axis tilt track would be located compared to a 14* axis tilt track.

The real answer is that it could be almost anywhere. It's only the distance across the track on the surface of the ball that really matters.

Note: I've made an exception with this quote, it's from Math is Truth instead of Mo, and responds to a question about the PBA Plastic Ball Layout. -- JohnP

You want to use the balance hole to push the Low RG axis down so it ends up closer to 3 3/8" from the PAP. Use the smallest balance hole to make it statically legal. Larger balance holes will cut the diffs! I spent hours studying the changes in principal axes and diffs when Mo started developing this technique. Exciting times watching this layout win that Plastic Ball tournament!!

An intermediate diff. on the undrilled ball of <.010" makes the ball a symmetrical ball because when you drill it, the PSA of the drilled ball will move to the area of the thumb hole until a balance hole is added.

A 90* drilling angle will ALWAYS put the PSA 6 3/4" from the PAP.

On symmetrical balls without a balance hole, use the PAP as P1.

About "Rico Layout": viewtopic.php?f=6&t=9822

"It uses the weakest pin placement with a strong balance hole. Seems contradictory to me. Take it away, then give it back. Why bother? The only time I've seen it work well is on stone wall overblocks by rev dominant players."

Regarding use of low differential balls for bowlers with low axis tilt.

I hadn't seen that, but here are some guidelines for low tilt bowlers (3*-11*). First of all low diff. balls, as long as the total diff. >10*, should help the breakpoint to get down the lane with more continuation. Always use pin to PAP distances < 5" for low tilt bowlers. Longer pin to PAP distances can cause the ball to pull the track up on the holes. Use angle sums > 90* with the drilling angle at least 1.5 time the VAL angle. Hope that helps.

The pin placement on a full roller layout is designed so the ball doesn't flare over thew holes. Every company has their own way. When we did the aggressive full roller layouts, we used CAD program to analyze the drilled balls to maximize the diffs. of the drilled ball. That's accurate. There are two, one for asyms. and one for syms. Those layouts are in the Wiki. I guarantee the accuracy of our suggested layouts. They are entitled to their positions. That the jist of it.

With no thumbers I use a pin location just above the fingers as a 1st drill. Using pins out to the right can sometimes pull the track up onto the finger holes. Safety first, and I can still use a balance hole to influence the reaction if there is no thumbhole drilled.

Taken from Motion hole topic (v.s. Double thumb question see #589):
viewtopic.php?f=13&t=7374&start=580

The answer is the laws of Physics dictate motion. Don't get hung up on the #s only. The difference between the two layouts is the position of the balance hole. The MOtion hole definitely increases the gyroscopic inertia of the ball. The DT puts all the holes on one side of the ball and blows up both the diffs. to the max. It's very complex physics.

Keep the pin 3 1/2" to 4 1/2" from the PAP. Move it slightly up for sharper breakpoint and slightly down for more continuation.

The Reduced Flare layout ( 90 x 2 1/4" x 70) was specifically designed for asyms. with big cores because when you reduce the flare that much, you need the big core for the hit.

Note: This is the first no-thumb layout I've seen Mo recommend since the grip center rule change. -- JohnP

Just picked up a Yeti Uncaged, with a 2" pin and top weight of 3.5. I'm looking for layout help, below are my stats.

I also track within an inch of my middle finger.

Right handed / throw no thumb
15-16 mph on monitor
60 axis rotation
Tilt 13*
Rev rate 400 - 425
Mostly bowl on synthetic lanes,
My PAP is 5 1/2 down 2" (calculated using between fingers as center grip)


Are you a no thumb bowler? Sounds like it to me. Put the pin off the corner of your RF hole. Put the cg just below the center of your grip (center of the finger holes).

Question if top wt causes the tilt retention, taken from:
viewtopic.php?f=13&t=7374&view=unread#unread

The increase in the gyroscopic inertia by creating a column of air (much less dense than the ball; .013 sg compared to an average of 1.9 sg) near the axis of rotation of the ball causes the ball to retain axis rotation longer.
