Post subject:  Good Pro Shop in the San Diego, Southern California area?

Hello,

I'm new to this forum but have just gotten back into bowling in the past few months after not bowling since I was a kid and am new to the San Diego area.

I'm having ball fit issues, most notable is that my span is way too stretched with the edge of the fingertip grip right at my first knuckle crease on my middle finger and even farther past the crease on my ring ringer by about 1/8". This is making my ring finger nail pop out of the hole.

Unfortunately I didn't realize this was wrong until I started doing research. And the pro shop I have been dealing with seems to think this stretched span is correct, even after asking.

So I'm hopefully looking for any recommendation for a pro shop in the San Diego / SoCal area who knows how to do a real proper fit. It would be great if it was with the MoRich system as this seems very thorough.

Thanks for any help!

Mike

Being an East Coaster, you guys in So Cal will need to help him. Check with IBPSIA (800-659-9444) for any Advanced Certified ball drillers in So Cal.

If you can't find anybody else, I would call around the bowling alleys and find where Don Jackson (he is from Imperial Beach) or (Ken Racette) bowl and then contact them and ask about drillers. Alvin Lou is in El Cajon if he still drills balls (he has been doing it a long time, but do not know much else about him. Dan Lusteg used to drill for him many years ago). Gary Burke is also another bowler in San Diego who comes to mind. try contacting them and see who they go to.

P.S. Looking at your layouts, I do not see anything wrong with the driller you currently use. Experimenting and changing spans and grips might hurt you irregardless of who you use. Just my 2 cents.

I don't know if Nord checked out your response (I added link to this thread).

Thanks for your advice, caring, and growing the sport!

San Diego area - Kearny Mesa Bowl Pro Shop. Ask for Teddy Turner. He does a very good job.

He is drilling Nord's balls now. Seems like a pretty good operator.
