Dennis, So you've felt a difference in various colors of finger grips from Vise. It was suggested to me to go to ovals and I've never gone back to the lifts. Usually ask for orange and blue finger grips, but have some yellow or white, too. Not familiar with the clear ones. Perhaps I ought to order some for myself. Each ball I have uses a slug in the thumb...

I did ask Vise, they admitted the clear are softer.

I had developed calluses on my finger tips from the lifts. Changed, and they went away.

Before I started switching my own grips, I had mine replaced in ball one time and the Pro Shop operator at the time put in the Turbo Quad ovals with the textured mesh. I hadn't asked for them, I had always used lifts before then. They were already glued in and I didn't want to be a bother, so I didn't say anything. It turned out that I really liked it and have stayed that way since.

I only use clear and like Dennis my PS he does not stock clear. I order in bulk for $1.25 each and change them out every so often depending on usage.
Finger Grips absorb hand and lane oil with each game bowled altering texture and size. The clear seems to have more texture to them and hold their texture longer without becoming slick over time. I just checked mine today. Out of 8 balls I checked that I have used over the last 6 months 4 sets need replacing. With clear you can see the oil absorption without removing the grips. They will have a brown tint to them and in some cases shrink inward. Boy was my Arctic Sniper needing a change. Spare ball seems to roll over the fingers a lot.

Boss, Sounds like you found a pretty good deal for grips. Do you buy them on-line?
BTW. Thanks for the info from all of you. Quite interesting...

I got mine directly from the vise rep. I was in Pro Shop when he came in. And, he knows my Pro Shop doesn't buy Vise. So, I gave him my order, which he booked to my Pro Shop. I paid the Pro Shop.

Was a new customer for him, and I got a deal.

I bought 4 bags of each finger size. Changed over most of my equipment.

Picking up my no filler original Yeah Baby tomorrow from my PS. I had the span and pitches changed and removable thumb installed. This is my stronger option to the NS in my bag. It has been a long process in converting all my equipment to removable thumbs and span changes but I am almost there. It will be like getting a new ball since I have not used in a long time..

I changed over bout half year ago. And now, am thinking of a couple other balls to change as well. Came to the conclusion. It's not the ball that stopped working. It's the operator.

Balls are so different at 17 mph then they are at 12.5. so, change the ball to match the speed and revs.
