How many of you are suing an offset thumb/raised ring finger?  Any thoughts?

Used offset for many years, then migrated off it to increase axis rotation. Tempted to try it again in combinations with a weight drop to 14...but this more of a science experiment.

Depending on who you talk to, offset thumbholes don't exist.

BUT, I know what you mean. My thumbhole is not on my grip centerline either.

If your hand geometry dictates you need it, then you need it. That simple.

I have too much rotation so I may strongarm my pso into trying it (+1/16 middle, +1/8 ring) next go-round...

Offset thumbholes do not exist.  They are like the old Collier grips of days past. Both are optical illusions.

Makes sense to me.  Your spans are your spans.  Either the ball fits or it doesn't.
