I've tried 3 drillings w/Sigma Tour I've always wanted to do. Being w/Motiv has given me that opportunity. Drilled 5 1/4", 4", and 2 1/4" pins keeping the CG in the center of my grip w/all 3 balls. Did not bother to figure out the Dual Angle #'s but since it has been said that the CG does not matter, I wanted to try this layout combo. Naturally the 4" pin is the strongest overall, giving me a very strong motion off the pattern. The 5 1/4" pin went 2' long but was not as 'snappy' on the b/e as you may think. The 2 1/4" pin rolled earlier & did not do alot for me so I plugged it, sanded ball to 1500 & did a 45x5x55 w/pin under bridge & P3 hole. Monster!! This ball reads the mids well & keeps coming after it makes its turn. On a flatter sport shot, this ball rolled true, did not squirt on me & made a super move off the pattern . . and the carry was excellent!!
Regarding the Backdraft, I've punched up 2 thus far. One w/pin thru the RF, CG kicked out w/P2.5 hole. This equates to a 45x4x45 for me. Love this ball on the THS! Revs up well, reacts & rolls great from start to finish. The other is drilled (don't be mad, JW) Rico style. Reacts about as you would expect. Very smooth however, when the lanes break down alittle it can be surprisingly strong on the b/e. Usually have to play at or very near the oil line. No 30 out-to 5 w/this ball/layout combo.
Hope this helps, good luck, and stay . . MOTIV-ated !!
