Ah, forgot about that.  He was using Linds I think at the beginning of his Columbia run I believe.

To noturcuzin and TheCrownedPrince,

Is that kind of childish reply really necessary?

A whole lot of us use Linds, in VAST preference to Dexters, whose crap seems to fall apart by looking at it sideways.
Is this the kind of Ballreviews.com you want to see???

If so, I'll be glad to oblige. If not, please restrain yourself from such negative comments. They serve no useful purpose.

It's not that I don't like them, It's just I have never seen anyone use them. Sorry if I offended anyone.

I would use (and have) Linds over Dexters. However, since the Dynarooz Tour Ultras have been on my feet---no other company need apply.

noturcuzin,
If you could see my feet in the InSite Revelation video (which you cannot), you would have seen someone with Linds on...

I wore Linds up until this past summer, but I made the switch to Dexter when my ten year old Linds finally wore out.

Linds needs to add some more style to the mix, I really like the wedge, but my favorite were the PSS, the ones with the black and white checkerboard, now that was a shoe!

I know that I will never bowl on the pba due to skill and drive. I do know there are some who use Linds because they shuffle there feet. Because of this my options are very limited. Have tried on a pair of the shufflers and was not sure I could shuffle. Due to back problems I am scared to try any thing else.

Thanks for the heads up Paul. Now from reading some of the replies I know of some people who use Linds. Just to clear things up with everyone including Charlest, when TheCrownedPrince said "Who uses Linds anyway?" I was agreeing with him in the sense that I have never seen anyone in my area wear Linds. Everybody around here uses Dexter and Etonic. Sorry if I sounded like a jerk, I didn't intend to.

I still use Linds, and I bowl a few regionals every year. This is upsetting news. Mine are not near worn out yet and I just bought new discs to for the slide sole

FYI....riggs has posted about this issue as a devout old time Linds user and has said on another local forum "I am pursuing a few options but I tried to switch before (for a contract) and despite a lot of experiments I just could not.  I drag my feet in my second step and other shoes besides Lind's tend to have big brims/edges that catch and cause me to stumble (even more than usual!).  Could be forced PBA retirement for me - and others, from the contacts I have had."

So, yes there are those that will be hurt by Linds not choosing to re-up their PBA sponsorship.
