I get what your saying but like i said previously im 17 without a job, and i cant keep dumping money into this, im having to fill out college apps that cost about 30$ a piece and thats becoming a priority, so this is just a huge mess, i mean just dumped 80$ into switch grips and the driller didnt adjust the span with the pitch change so i pretty much wasted 80$
I mean this is getting so ridculous and im just ready to quit, i cant even not get into an argument with my dad about it because he thinks the drillers a god or something and does nothing wrong. So i mean two handing would be very simple at this point

Lets back up a second, how do you know your span is wrong?

im not positive that its wrong, but im assuming it is because im losing skin at the base of my thumb near the webbing, and its insanely painful.

How sharp is the edge of your thumb hole, could putting a bevel on it help do you think? Is there one there already?

the edge of the hole is even more smooth after adding a ton of bevel yesterday but its still doing the same thing to me just not as severely, so im just not sure.

Would you describe your timing as being early, good, or late.

I suggest taking a trip to the Kegel training center and having someone there check your fit, and give you a lesson so you can progress in the right direction without further injury. There are plenty of competent ball drillers in Florida, more than any other state. If I want a ball drilled properly I pretty much either have to buy a drill press, or fly to Florida myself, so don't wait too long before changing drillers.

I would go to KTC but its expensive for the coaching there, and i mean i have to find someplace where i can get my fit checked but the only day i can go is saturday and most times its not convienent for my parents to take me all the way to a place like that to get checked. im still trying to figure it out, its just a very confusing situation

after trying again tonight with the 2 handing i can honestly say that was the worst idea ever, its to physically demanding and on the skip step if you already have bad knees you make them feel terrible. on the bright side i shot a clean 181 with my thumb so maybe things are turning around
