One is 60x70@4.75, the other is 45x20@5.25. Fairly typical layouts for me.

Will you be requiring my services? If not, let me know when your heading where so I can see these roll. Want to figure out the best place for holes in mine when I get them.

Was on vacation this weekend, haven't thrown them yet.

I know, it is a travesty :)

Justin,

I am also very curious to see how they react with each drilling. I am unsure which way to drill mine also. I tend to prefer pin up drills and change surface or covers. The reaction just seems fo favor my tilt/etc. But, i would consider the pin under for the Cruel to give me an earlier ball with a strong cover.

Hopefully the videos will be soon to come..

thanks in advance,

Jeff

After a "Video Tune Up" practice session tonight, I can give a bit of insight into the reaction of the Cruel. Some of this is a bit of a sneak peek at contents of the coming video.

I drilled an SR2 with the same layout as the pin-down Cruel for video comparison sake. The only difference is a P2 hole in the SR2 for static weight legality. Out of the box the Cruel was an 8 and 5 move left of the SR2. Significant.

This ball has an .060 diff, and flares as you would expect, a significant amount. So much that my pin up flares to the pin as it rolls through the rack. This photo shows the final flare rings, they are kind of hard to pick out, but they are there.

For the video, I am going to touch the pin up with some Power Gel Polish over the factory 2k surface. With my rev rate and lack of tilt, I was loosing a bit of energy early. The polish will help the ball finish a bit more. One often overlooked part of drilling is matching surface and layout, you don't want too much disparity.

I will be leaving the pin down C51 alone, 2k out of the box. The reaction is strong and smooth, and definitely has a place in my bag. Not to mention that Motiv sound through the pins.

Here are a couple pics of the block, you can more clearly see the asymmetry than the diagrams.

More detail when I get the video up. I have scheduled the filming for Sunday afternoon, editing Sunday night. it should be live Sunday night or Monday morning. Watch this space!
