suggestions on dilling an OI ?
« on: January 04, 2007, 11:50:20 AM »
i don't really know much about drilling or this ball to be truthful but i have a friend thats hooking me up with a single drill OI thats in really good shape for $20. Right now it's drilled for a righty, so i have to get it redrilled. The main question i have is, Is there anyway that i can get it drilled to be somewhat smooth? I have a punisher that is really really jumpy and i need something a little smoother. I'm beginning to think that this isn't the right ball to get a somewhat smooth reaction out of after reading some reviews, but for $20 i couldn't turn it down.

I think that the OI definately can be a smooth archy type ball with the correct drilling. Mine has a very smooth reaction. I bought mine second hand and just fixed the span. I am not positive about specs on the drill however I seem to remember that the pin is way above midline (5-6"?) and to the right of ring finger with the cg backtoward grip center.
 I would tell your driller what it is you are looking for in a reaction and he should be able to set it up.
 Or if you decide it is not what you want LMK and we'll deal!

Whether you think you can, or whether you think you can't... you're probably right.

Tonx beat me to it. You really don't want to pay all that shipping do you?
