If I may add my 2 cents worth, the balls you'll find at Sports Authority are generally plastic balls, ie. balls that wont hook. Those balls work alright as spare balls, but they wont be drilled correctly, so its generally not worth it to waste your time. I know a few people who have bought balls there, the "fitters" size your thumb, and have it put into a ball that has a bunch of finger holes in a spiral set up. You put your fingers in the ones that fit the closest, and thats how they measure your span. So, you are forced to go with their "pre-measurements", kinda like you do when searching for a house-ball. At a real Pro Shop, your span is measured, and the driller knows where to drill the ball for maximum performance. You can get a good ball used at most pro shops if you dont want to pay 180, usually you can get something in the 75-100 range.
