Something to be aware of here, JJKinGA. ALL three major axes shift EVERY TIME you drill a hole in the ball on EVERY BALL because EVERY drilled hole raises the RG along the axis into which it is drilled!
How much they shift is dependent on the degree of asymmetry in the undrilled ball. The higher the degree of asymmetry, the less the axes will shift. This is exactly why the PSA shifts to the thumb in ALL sym equipment and even some weak asyms.
Exactly. Kelly is right.
Please see the image below to see these axis changes from drilling holes. The pins coming out and beyond of the ball surface shows the actual shift of these axis after drilling.
Please notice the yellow (low RG axis) has shifted up and to the right slightly from the pin. Thus the RG contours also shifted after drilling. Remember the axis migrations follows the RG contours.
The MB in the image has also moved up but in this example has also moved left. Pin to MB is still 6 3/4".
At this point we know all the characteristics for this bowling ball before having drilled it.
- We know the ball motion we're going to get on just about any oil pattern.
- We know how much it will flare.
- We know where the flare is on the ball.
- We know where the bowties will be.
- We know also where the wet flares will be.
- We know where the dry flare will be on the ball surface.
We know everything about this ball before drilling it.
The best part of this is knowing all of the above and we have not yet drilled the ball.
We can make changes in BluePrint to the layout (drill angel, pin to pap distance, VAL angle) with any one, two or all three of these values in the Dual Angel Layout System. Each change we make we see instant results in all of the above bowling ball characteristics already mentioned.
We can make changes to fine tune and get the exact desired ball motion / reaction were looking for.
No more discussions after drilling about what the ball should do and why its not performing as anticipated. No more talk about "well we can add a weight/balance hole". No more trial and error talk about ball surface changes to fine tune the reaction even though these options are a available in the real world we can also simulate the results in the virtual world of BluePrint and get more accurate perditions.
With BluePrint you WILL get the reaction your looking for after drilling. Your customers WILL get the performance they seek.
It does not get any better than being able to work with and interacting with your customers, using BluePrint, and being able to show them exactly what their going to get before
you drill the ball for them.
I hope this helps.
