What is your PAP?
Better yet...
If you want to match the layout you have on the Alpha Crux just take both balls to the proshop and have them match it. Its better than me guessing on what you have.

Yes, let your PSO handle it. But remember, how closely he can match the layout depends greatly on the ball's pin-out and top weight. The two most important factors in the layout are the pin position and the mb position. These two are fairly easy to match. But if the pin-out and top weight (and to a lesser degree the line-up of the pin, cg, and mb) aren't fairly close it may be impossible to use the same size and location of balance hole while remaining legal on static weights. -- JohnP

Ask your PSO who has the tools to help you to get your PAP and layout figures. You may go for different layouts in the future for some reasons.
