there are a couple of strong plastic balls on the market with more coming out. i know they would have a layout on the stronger core balls but what about the pancake cores ( or small cores) such as a t-zone plastic ball....do they drill them a certain way or just drill it without a layout?

Layout relates to track flare management and core angles.
Tzones do not have a core, do not flare, the coverstock is weak, and therefore will benefit very little from static label shifts etc...
I drill Tzones with the label at the grip center.

Balls with poly cover and large flaring cores might benefit from layout decisions on very dry lanes or with significant surface.

t-zone has a bullet sym core. it's little bit bigger than a pancake core than in most plastic balls. i have the t-zone and sometimes use it for my go to ball ( depending on conditions) . i was looking into the twist (pearl reactive) and the track spare ball (plastic) with a much larger core than most resin balls, and they could also be drilled to carry further down......

This is the recommended strong layout for low differential and pancake cored balls.
The instructions call for a balance hole just large enough to keep the static weight legal. No need for that anymore.

For the Stronger Asymmetrical plastic balls I would recommend the Benchmark Layout.

track spare + ball is strong. I got it drilled moderately strong to hook on dry lanes. I took it to Nationals in 2016? They made me have to get a balance hole drilled close to the finger holes telling me it had issues. It pasted the first day 2nd day had to get that done.
