Just to add my two cents worth. Not only was that great advice due to the quality of the equipment being lesser, I can almost guarantee that the person who fits and drills the ball really doesn't have a clue to what they're doing. Not only will the ball probably not fit, but may also cause injury due to a poor fit. Having worked in a shop for some years, I can't tell you how many people have brought these balls in for us to refit. They may have saved $20-$30 on the initial price, but then they have to get the ball plugged and re-drilled, price varies from shop to shop, plus the ball is now plugged so it probably doesn't have the color match exactly(cosmetics really aren't a big deal
) but the ball has now cost you what a factory first costs, and it's a factory second to start with! Your Pro Shop
operator if he is absolutely ethical, can probably put you into a piece of equipment that will fit your game and not be too expensive, if you don't mind throwing something that isn't part of the "ball-of-the-month-club". It may be something from six months to a year old, but just may fit the bill. Once again, you get what you pay for.
