Pre-ordered the SigH and need a layout recommendation. Layouts of current arsenal are in my signature and all are working well for their intended purpose. The SigT is my favorite as far as shape and response.

Thanks in advance.

W/O knowing your ball speed, rev rate, tilt, etc. and only going by the layouts you currently have, try a 55x40x4.5. This is a great ball !! However, you need head oil . . and lots of it. Just drilled mine w/this layout & I love it on the heavier oil. Gives me the cofidence in the b/e reaction I need help with. If you drill it w/same specs as your Sigma Tour it will use up too much of its' energy & "puke" early on you. Unless you have ALOT of ball speed, stay w/4" or greater pin length. Hope this helps! Good Luck!

I am, in fact, speed dominant/rev-challenged. Speed off my hand is 18mph at 260 rpm with a 10* tilt.

Given this new info, cut the pin distance back to 3 3/4" and the VAL angle to 35 degrees. This will help the ball start up sooner for you. Good Luck!!

Will the 55x35@3.75 easily accomodate a balance hole? I would guess it would be placed 2" down the VAL based on my other equipment.

Affirmative. I have mine 2" down VAL.

Thanks, Mick.

Got my SigH punched and, although I only have about 5 games on it, I love response and shape I get with it. Looking forward to using it on some heavier oil shots this summer.
