1. I feel the span is correct.
2. My fan line is 16deg.
3. Can some one explain why I should be using 5/16 left on middle and 9/16 right on ring lateral.
4. Why am I getting the cut mark on my middle finger
5. I can come out of this ball fine but I feel I'm squeezing to hold on to it.
6 I recently started drilling my thumb 90 deg to my oval angle, prior to this is was 1/4 rev. And 0 left right and some shots are ok some hang up and I'm not clean.

1. It looks a little short to me because of the large bend in the knuckles shown in the bottom picture.
2. Ok.
3. Your lateral finer pitches should add up to at least 3/4" to allow sufficient depth before they intersect. The wiki guide fan chart pitches simulate pivoting the ball to your fan line and drill 3/8" left and 3/8" right. So for a 16* fan line, if you drill the fingers 5/16" left and 9/16" right off the centerline, they should be 3/8" left and 3/8" right when measured on the 16* fan line.
4. You're probably using too much forward/not enough reverse in the fingers. You may also be burying the fingers because the span is short.
5. This happens when the span is too short.
6. Are you drilling 1/4 reverse on your line PTOA (perpendicular to thumb oval angle)? If not, you may want to try.

To recap: lengthen the span and add reverse to the fingers and thumb, imo.

The only other thing I would think would cause that is the inserts being worn out or too tight. They don't appear to be excessively worn in the photo, so maybe you need to go up a size. Also, your hands look pretty dried out, which will make your skin crack easier.

Drill the thumb hole first, then check the span ON THE BALL with your thumb in and relaxed hand layed down on the ball.
Do NOT reach or stretch.
Dont use the fitting wheel, mark on the ball.

Can anyone recommend a good driller/fitter in Pittsburgh? These things are best done in person.

Nothing against you James, I know you’re one of the best.
