my span is the best its ever felt by far, I know several of you have read my posts with me complaining about my span and what not. When I lay my fingers across my ball relaxed the line of my first knuckle (on the bottom) lays about 3/4 of from the bottom of the hole to the top, and I'm now throwing the ball better than I ever have because of it. For one of the first times in my life I threw a full game where every ball was in the pocket (9 strikes, 2 10's and a solid 9). Even my 299 and 298 games had a brooklyn here and there. I've only been using this shortened span for about 2 weeks now (I posted a video of my span a while back, and have shortened the red ball in that video by about half an inch, and had the rest of the balls plugged to match). I also had reverse pitch added to my ring finger with an oval grip to relieve some ring finger pain I was having.
I would purely be using that turbo rev for padding until my finger healed (i'm pretty convinced that its a stress pain) - as far as the cold index finger for the first few frames I'm not sure. I guess i'll have to have that looked at, but its been that way for as long as I can remember (possibly as far as 10 years back).
