It seems that there are plenty of shops where they'll just measure your hand, drill the ball then send you on your merry way. I'm looking for a shop that will actually take the time to find my PAP and help determine the layout according to what I want the ball to do. I assume that the shops listed on the PBA site are a good place to start, but I'd like to go to the best around.

Is anyone able to recommend a shop where they're very thorough and do a great job?

I like Damon at Farmingdale lanes. Also Mike at Westbury bowl. To me those two are the best. I used to like Norm Ginsberg Jr. but he doesn't drill anymore. In my opinion those are the best around. Honorable mention goes out to BowlMart in Mineola. I like Frank but they haven't quite moved with the times. No switch grips.

Thanks, I'll check out Damon at Farmingdale lanes since it's close to my job. I just want to make sure my ball is 100% fit and drilled correctly so that I can focus on my game and not have any excuse to blame my equipment when I mess up grin

Thanks again

No problem, the only day he isn't open is Sunday. I'll be there today coaching in a youth league. I like it there.
