Please Note: Because all bowlers have different positive axis points (PAP) your layouts may not have the same appearance as the illustrations. Also the layouts are for right-handed players. Remember to flip or rotate to produce "mirror-image" for left-handed players.

Pro Drilling Instructions

Note: For reaction adjustments, consult the Ball Surface Reaction Guide.
Be sure to check for excess side weight and finger/thumb weight, as a balance hole may be necessary for any of these layouts. If one is required, draw a line from the center of the grip through the CG and extend to the PAL. This will be the location of the balance hole.

Layout 1

Storm Pro Drilling Layout 1

With this layout we place the pin 5-���¯�¿�½��¯��¿��½����¯����¿����½���¯�¿�½��¯��¿��½���¯�¿�½����¾" from the PAP, above the finger holes, to produce length on drier conditions.

Next we select a MB (Mass Bias) position suitable for our breakpoint shape.
(A) MB in the Ball Track designed to produce a late and smooth breakpoint.
(B) MB in the Strong Position This will produce an earlier and shaper breakpoint than Position A.
- Good for extreme entry angle!
(C) MB on the PAL produces the earliest breakpoint of three positions while providing a controllable and "readable" backend.
- Works great on heavy oil patterns!


Layout 2

Storm Pro Drilling Layout 2

With this layout, we place the pin 4-���¯�¿�½��¯��¿��½����¯����¿����½���¯�¿�½��¯��¿��½���¯�¿�½����¼" from the PAP. This position will produce medium to high flare, great for players trying to "open up" on a medium to heavy oil lane condition.

For bowlers with medium to high rev rates, this position will often produce the most overall hook throughout the entire lane.

Now select a MB (Mass Bias) position.
(A) locate the MB halfway between the ball track and PAL to produce a sharp breakpoint
(B) Place the MB at the PAL for an earlier, smoother breakpoint.
(C) Place the MB 2" past the PAL for a very heavy midlane roll on long oil patterns.


Layout 3

Storm Pro Drilling Layout 3

Place pin and CG 4-���¯�¿�½��¯��¿��½����¯����¿����½���¯�¿�½��¯��¿��½���¯�¿�½����½" from PAP.

Use scale to determine static balance.

Produces length and an arcing backend.

A layout every player should have in their bag.


Layout 4

Note: To remove excess finger weight, drill finger holes 2.5" deep.
Storm Pro Drilling Layout 4

Place pin and CG 3-3/8" from PAP.

Use scale to determine both side and finger weight.

Locate balance hole on PAP and remove excess side weight to ���¯�¿�½��¯��¿��½����¯����¿����½���¯�¿�½��¯��¿��½���¯�¿�½����¾ oz positive.

Produces maximum flare and hook

Works especially well for Tweeners and Strokers!


Layout 5

Storm Pro Drilling 5

Place pin CG 5-1/2 from PAP.

Locate Mass Bias in between ball track and strong position.

Use scale to determine static balance.

To locate a balance hole if necessary, draw a line from grip center through CG and extend to axis midplane.

High track players will benefit from this layout.


Layout 6

Storm Pro Drilling 6

Place pin and CG 4-1/2" from PAP.

Place Mass Bias on the axis midplane.

to locate the balance hole if necessary, draw a line from grip center through CG and extend through axis midplane.

This drilling will help generate more midlane roll.
