This video is a compilation of the bowling ball layouts used by PBA bowlers in the televised finals from 2013 - 2015. It is designed as a visual reference to see what layouts the bowlers were using on their balls on the different lane conditions they bowled on. If multiple balls were used, then then ball they used initially is shown first.

As the bowler's PAP is not known, it is not possible to know what the dual angle layout of the ball is. The bowler's rev rate, speed, tilt and rotation is also unknown, so the layout by itself is just a guide to show what it looked like. If these layouts are copied by bowlers with a different PAP and release specs, you may not get the same reaction.

I wanted to show the layout with as much detail as possible, where the relationship between the pin, CG, MB and any balance holes could be seen. Unfortunately some of the stills are a bit blurry as I had to zoom in quite a lot at times which affected the resolution.

The music is Into Red Dust by Australian band The Ambients, from their album Into Red Dust (2013), and the song has been used with permission.
