Post subject:  Layout for Freestyle on short oil

I bowl on 35-37 foot house shot. Just bought the pink Freestyle. Need to know best layout for maximum length and minimum hook. Looking to move right and belly second. I have 12-13 speed and lots of hans. Have a Graffiti Tag with leverage layout with pin outside the ring finger and have to stand at 35+ and swing inside 3rd. Please any advise.

With that low of speed, you will always have trouble with over-reaction at the end of the pattern. Not saying a max length type layout won't work, but you may want to evaluate the opposite side of the spectrum too.

Max length can be accompanied with a quick, uncontrolled reaction once friction is encountered. This is usually accomplished by placing the pin far away from your PAP. For me, this would be in the 6" range.

Perhaps going the other way, placing the pin close to your PAP typically results in early roll, but also more control. This is especially helpful on shorter patterns where there is a lot of friction.

Just wanted to throw out a different option.
