Question from Jason:Q -- Hi my brother and I just got the Vise IT in our equipment. The cool thing about it is that we both have the same pitch, span, and fingers. The only thing is that he had a larger thumb than me. My questions is during League or Tournament is it OK that we can use each others bowling balls or even the same one during the competition.A -- I am glad that you are happy with the Vise IT. For those that do now know, IT stands for Interchangeable Thumb, and is Vise's system to let you have the same thumb hole feel in every ball. It is similar to the Turbo Switch Grip. We are proponents of these systems, as it is very important to have the same feel from ball to ball. And this is one way of achieving that. If you have us drill your new bowling ball, we can install either the Vise IT, or the Turbo Switch Grip for you.You can also have multiple inserts made so that instead of adding tape, you can just change the insert, especially if your thumb swells and/or shrinks a lot during competition.The only reason we don't use one of these systems is because of we would end up wasting quite a bit of the inner pieces. Since we shoot a video for so many different balls, it is cheaper for us to use a thumb mold. Putting the inner pieces in for just a video shoot doesn't make sense for us.As for your competition question, there is nothing in the rule book that prohibits multiple people from using the same equipment. You will only annoy the people you are bowling with/against if it ends up causing a delay in the game because you are waiting for the ball to return.How to contact usEmail us [email protected] a comment on TalkBowling.comOn Twitter we are @TalkBowlingSponsor: ChampsSports.comDid you know that offers you a winning selection in sportswear and shoes from leading brands in the industry.
