  • Ball basics 101

    I would love to know a little more about ball basics. I understand the weight block inside and the pin which shows the center of the weight block. How does the basic set-up of the holes affect the ball? I realize there are hundreds of different types of covers,blocks, combinations out there but reading McGolf's question got me to wondering what changes cause what affect on the ball. Span, distance between fingers, finger holes in relation to thumb hole. Does the span from thumb to each finger have a different reaction or is it mostly comfort. How much is fitting for comfort and what really makes the ball do what you want. Anyone interested in covering ball basics?

    Everything you will ever need to know is in that wiki. Check out the ball technology and layout sections, as well as the fitting section... those relate the questions in your post. If you have any specific questions feel free to post 'em.
