You may place an order with a request for whatever pin distance you like and then the warehouse would let us know the closest ball that they had that matched your request and we would contact you to see if you approved the specs that they found, or if we needed to look in one of our other warehouses.

Question: How do I change the size of the finger holes?

11/30/2016 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer: Hi ZZ. You can always take your ball to your local driller and see about him making the finger holes bigger for you order you can look into purchasing a Bevel knife and you can make them bigger yourself. If the finger holes are too big, you can get finger inserts or fitting tape in the holes to make it a bit tighter.

Question: If I order a 12 lb ball will it be 11 something after drilling?

2/15/2017 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer: Hello Margie. If you receive an exactly 12 pound ball, drilling will take out about 2-3oz off.

Question: The question, "what is pin placement" , was really not answered below. What exactly is that? Next question, I am a new bowler and I am considering this ball. Is it a good choice? If not, does someone have a better choice? I don't want the cheapest ball out there. Thanks, Kris

Have an answer to this question?

Answer: The pin placement can be defined as a pin out or pin in. A drilling term that is relative to a bowler's track designed purposely for creating more ball dynamics. A Pin-in ball (when the pin is located within two inches of the Center of Gravity) is excellent choice for control and less hook; a Pin-out ball usually can be made to hook more and flip more dramatically than pin-in balls; they often give the driller more options. If you are a new bowler, we recommend trying an Entry Level ball first. This ball is a Mid Performance ball. If you click on the link that follows, you can filter your search by clicking on "performance level" tab and you will choose "entry level performance". https://www.bowling.com/search/ball-selector.aspx
