Tournament Surface suggestions

I am looking for some surface suggestions for an upcoming tournament. The situation:

Scratch tourney, 6 game qualifier to stepladder type finals. The pattern will not be announced until practice starts, but will be a Kegel Challenge pattern of an unkown distance.

My arsenal (dual angles w/? are approximate, but pretty close)

Ruckus Feud, 45x4.5x45? (pin down)
Resurgence, 70x5x35 (pin up, right of RF)
Uproar, 50x4x35 (pin slightly up, right of RF)
Scream, 70x5x30? (pin up, over RF)
Original Black Hammer (82), unknown dual angle, label slightly right an high in palm.

I have another Ruckus Feud to potentially drill, pin up and very angular to compliment the pin down, so give me ideas on that one too.

Speed = 15.5-15.8
Rev Rate = 375

Lanes/approaches are synthetic, my home house. The house shot tends to be dry, I can barely use the Resurgence most days. I am comfortable playing most parts of the lane (from gutter to 20ish) but can't loft the caps. I expect competition to be high scoring, this series will bring out touring Regional card holders.

Given the knowns and my arsenal, what would you go with for surfaces to account for the unknown pattern?

Re: Tournament Surface suggestions

Always go to the lanes shiny, can adjust from there
I will take a piece that's weaker and put 500 + polish on it, scuff it if I need to
Take what rolls the best for you and adjust when you see what they look like
A variety of balls with a few different surfaces is just a guess, but take some that are to dull and it will just sit in your bag...useless

Re: Tournament Surface suggestions

I had a thought:

Setup two pieces for the extreme pattern lengths/volumes, then moderate the middle of the pack for the variety.

So black hammer with surface for the possible short pattern and Feud with surface for the possible long, heavy pattern. Just a start.
