The Pro Shop that I've been doing business with for 7 years has never failed me in choosing the right equipment for my game. The Pro Shop that I go to has a stub lane so that you can try out your new ball for free so that if there are problems of any kind while you're trying it out that the problems can be fixed right there on the spot. My balldriller has shared with me the nightmares that he's seen with people bringing in "internet balls and raffleballs" and boy did I learn something quite interesting. Of course you as a bowler would not recognize anything wrong with the ball, but to a professional ball driller he can spot several things. The number one thing that my balldriller checks for is the weights and balances. And from his experience most of those weights and balances are either off a little or a lot. Sometimes you get lucky and the weights and balances are correct-yeah out of one and a million defective balls that he's seen. He recently told me that a regular customer had given him a ball for him to drill out and when he tried to drill it that core of the ball was separating from the shell- what a nightmare! Of course my balldriller will drill balls from the internet for you but there's a cost to that because he's using his equipment and his overall labor to drill the ball right. And people who think that a ball driller should not charge one to drill a ball that came from the internet or won at a raffle is really out of their mind. Hey drilling a ball is a lot more than drilling three holes in it. So you are much better off getting your ball and having it drilled the right way from a reputable Pro Shop. I own 5 balls and each and every one of them fit me to a T and they feel the same way when I do have to change balls. Me as an aspiring pro bowler strongly feel that price is unimportant- it's the quality and fit of the ball that matter to me the most. Anyone who is more interested in saving a couple of bucks here and there my opinion to people who think that way is "YOU GET WHAT YOU PAID FOR AND HAVE NO RIGHT TO COMPLIAN WHEN YOUR HAND RESEMBLES HAMBURGER MEAT" Enough said.
