Here they are drilled up.

65x30@5.5, I drilled this the same as my favorite SX1. When the SX1 is too much I wanted a step down, this fits the bill very nicely.

70x75@4.5, I decided to try something a bit different with this one, a low and kicked out pattern with a hole. I very rarely put holes in balls, this one got one. I compare it to my second favorite SX1 that is similarly laid out minus the hole and a few different degrees.

Hi guys, I learning a little about layouts & drilling, but what is 20 over 9 mean?????? Also, where can I get the specs on the " Reco" layout??? I'm a right hander, 14.5-16mph, stroker..do not know what my rev's are( is there a way to figure them out???), & want to drill the RX1 with the pin above my ring finger hole & CG stacked below finger hole..saw this at the PBA Senior @ Mooresville in May. Would a 3-4 or 4-5" pin work better????

Thanks..keep the pics & video coming..it's the only way me & my ball driller can figure out some drill patterns..thanks

20 board at the foul line, 9 at the arrows. Just an indication of where on the lane I'm standing in order to help further illustrate the difference between the balls.

The Rico layout is quite simple. Pin is in the center of grip, CG is at 45 degrees in the thumb positive quadrant with a weighthole 6.75" from the pin thru the CG.

The best way is through video. Place a line of tape from your PAP to finger hole, video it, replay in slo mo/frame by frame and count. Higher frame rate cameras are better, some are adjustable.

Depends on what reaction you are looking for, your span, and the shot you intend to use it on.

Hi Justin, thanks for the comments.. I have never heard the term over down here in NC..haha...we normally say 20 to 10..but it does make sense after an explaination..I'm going to use the RX1 on burnt-up, dry, or short oil..playing 10 & out..if the lanes are really bad I move left & play straight up 10with a lot of speed..not my fav shot..too lod to throw it that hard..sorry about the spelling on the Rico..my span is 4 3/4 ring & 4 11/16 middle..my thumb is 1/8 under/ toward palm..everybody says it different..& 0 lt.. also, LOVE the Vise IT, same feel everytime I change balls..makes a big diff, normally takes a frame or two after changing..now 0 or 1 balls, I'm back in the saddle..ps nice video's..

With a longer span and using the Vise-It, I'd say a 4" pin. You can keep the statics balanced a bit more with a longer pin while keeping the pin above the fingers. After drilling it you may consider a small P3 hole to smooth it a tick on the drier stuff if you find it erratic, or have trouble carrying.

I would assume, not being affiliated with those companies I can't say for sure.

Just got my RX1 drilled last night.

Justin, I liked how your 65x30@5.5 ball rolled in your video, so I went with the same layout. (my first ball with a dual angle layout) I will get to try it out this Thursday.

That layout clears the fronts very nicely with a bit of pop for carry. It is geared toward higher rev rates, but if you are rev/speed balanced you should have fine results.
