I finally went to the Pro Shop
this evening to get my Hy-Road taken care of. Last time I actually used it was about a month and half ago and felt wrist pain from using it. At the time I realized that the fit wasn't quite right. I felt it hang up on my thumb a lot when ever I did try to use it even before then. Well the span to the middle finger was too long, by close to 1/4 inch. So the thumb is getting plugged and moved accordingly. I thought about getting the IT system after I left the shop, so if they don't have the thumb re-drilled I think I'm going to get it done. It's $16 for the outer sleeve and I think $12 for the inner.
I also looked into getting a new ball, probably to replace my aging Track Triton Elite, as the plug material is cracking, it's quite old and isn't very forgiving. Since this is my weaker ball, I inquired into a weak ball and was directed at several of the "entry" level balls, like the Track 300T, Storm Tropical Heat or Breeze and the DV8 Misfit which is a brand of Brunswick. I was trying to stay away from Brunswick, for a couple reasons such as to try to give other ball companies a shot and I'm not a fan of their business practice of moving manufacturing out of the US, but didn't want to go with another Storm ball, but I just wasn't drawn to the 300T. So I went with the DV8 Misfit Magenta/Yellow. It could be considered an ugly ball but that's the way I like them. They didn't have any in stock in 16 lbs, actually they don't stock anything in 16 so they have to order it. It should be in my next Friday and should be drilled up before next Saturday night's league. I believe this shop uses Mo' Dual Angle technique, so this will be the first ball I will have drilled using my PAP, which we will have to find. I'm looking forward to seeing how it works out.
