I've been using oval finger inserts in all my bowling balls. In the last two balls the Pro Shop guy drilled for me, he accidently installed inserts that are visually similar to Vise Power Lifts. This is based on my observation and what I see in pictures on the net - they have flat spots on the finger pad side) in the last two balls I had drilled.

The weird thing is that my middle finger insert has the number 3 in it and the smaller ring finger insert has the number 11 in it.

Those numbers don't match up with the Vise sizes at all.

I really like the way these inserts feel and I want to replace the inserts in some of my other balls. I obviously need to order the correct sizes.

Any idea what manufacturer and size these inserts are?

thanks

Just guessing, but probably Turbo grips, size 3/4 and 11/16. Your Pro Shop guy should know for sure.

I think you're right about the Turbo grips. Those numbers seem to correspond to their sizing system and the Pro Shop does use that brand.

thanks!
