What I mean by an 1 inch pin is the distance of the pin from the CG... shorter pins generally roll up earlier and arc smoother off the break point, conversely, longer pins hook later and harder... What I'm driving at is that with internet balls you have no controll over what pin and top weight they will ship you. Proshops can always get a ball that meets your requirements from a distrubuter...
Or if they a several of the ball in stock, they can pick the one with the best top wight and pin for your game. Yes, you can save money buying balls off the internet, however, say the ball cracks due to a defect, you will have to deal
with sending the ball back yourself. You get the ball from a Pro Shop
, they will get the replacement for you. Good proshops will not charge you to drill a replacement, if you bought the ball from them to begin with. That happens with an internet ball. guesss what. The shop will expect you to pay for the drilling of the replacement.
