What is the BEST placement of "inkasted" kubbs (in theory)?

I am working on a new throw. So I have been setting 9 kubbs up 3x3 square touching each other, altogether, in an attempt to get better at my new throw. This got me thinking....if you could place 10 kubbs anywhere on the pitch (instead of inkasting them), what placement, location, pattern, etc. would net the best results hitting 10 kubbs down with 1 baton? Consider all aspects.. physics, laws of motion, other things I pretend to understand, etc.

Maybe you can demonstrate using these ascii symbols:

I would say placing 2-4 kubbs on the sideline close to the center pin, 2-3 kubbs on the center line close to the center pin and the rest bouncing in in the angle they create. Since you have to raise kubbs in bounds if it is possible this strategy brings the ones on the lines closer to the ones in "the angle". This gives you the tightest formation. To knock 10 kubbs over with one baton is not easy even if you get a really tight formation, but 6-7 is not that unusual at top tournaments.
Good luck!

Voilà! I propose "The Sunfeather". Here is a schematic "Double sunfeather". If you make a "simple S" It's just six kubbs involved and one across the half court line. Some "minor" tech problems with the drawing, but you have to think away the air between all kubbs and imagine they are all lying tight and close together and the only way to raise them will have to be inwards towards the baseline. I can't imagine anyone today able to make one. Matbe Björn Görlitz, with a lot of practice and a totally controlable turf. but I will look forward of seeing you making this one in Rone next year Josh! Way to go!!
