The second image shows the path of the same ball drilled pin up.
Bowling ball pin layouts.
The ball s preferred roll is over the position pin and around an axis referred to as it s positive spin axis psa sometimes referred to as the mass bias point mb.
Positive axis points pap your layouts may not have the same appearance as the illustrations.
The days of a pin up ball going farther down the lane and a pin down ball starting sooner are gone if we hold the other variables constant.
One consideration if you don t have a high rev rate or high ball speed is that you normally want to change to a similar bowling ball with a pin down layout.
Pin down layouts give you a slower more controllable overall ball reaction.
Big pin outs occur when the weight block tips to one side of the ball.
The pin marks the top of the core inside the bowling ball.
The bottom line is that it can matter.
The arcing layout this is what i call the 90 degree layout or ebonite s 90 degree layout.
On these demanding.
What is a pro pin bowling ball.
Pick your favorite layout.
Typically a bowling ball layout favors the end over end path and it rolls around it s positive axis point psa or sometimes called the mass bias mb point.
Methods used to lay out a ball.
Pin to pap distance is one element of a bowling ball s layout.
X place pin 4 from pap use 2 pin buffer locate key 4 from pap 7 layout 3 for maximum control with a flat shape and very little taper the sport shot is very challenging.
It is also the point around which the ball wants to rotate.
Pin down drilling layouts allow you to stay in the same area because the ball reaction is not as aggressive.
The 3 basic types of bowling ball drilling layouts.
Also t he layouts are for right handed players.
We re often told two main things about how pin to pap distance affects ball motion.
The layout of course defines how the core is oriented inside the ball relative to the bowler s pap and relative to the gripping holes.
This section details the different types of layouts that exist and the methods.
Most people drill pin up to start for their first ball.
Through the progress of bowling ball technology more and more research has been done regarding the placement of the holes in correlation to the pin mass bias marker and other factors that affect your bowling ball s performance.
It is used on most house shots.
Given an infinite length and time a ball will eventually rotate around the pin either with the pin down on the lane or on top of the ball.
The changes in bowling ball technology over the years have significantly altered how drilling the bowling ball will influence ball reaction.
