This week we continue our talk with the president and CEO of MoRich Enterprises Mo Pinel. All this month Mo will be with us to discuss dual angel drilling, and what can be done to learn about ball motion.  We begin segment three talking about VAL angles and PAP distance.  We talk about why longer pins allow more flexibility for your ball driller. We hit on weight-holes and what can be accomplished by using a weight-hole. Mo also talks about what you need to take to your pro shop operator when looking for a new bowling ball.  Check out Mo’s website for more information on where you can get more information on ball drilling and take a class. Mo and Joe talk about what the ball driller must do when a customer walks into the shop., and what a customer wants when looking for a new ball. Be sure to like Above 180 on Facebook, and follow us on Twitter.  Also send all your questions to as we will be answering all your questions in our final installment of our “Ball Drilling For Dummies segment”.

    ANOTHER GREAT SHOW. Excellent introduction to some very conceptually challenging issues. I agree with Mo, the industry needs a three tier certification program: introduction to ball driling- the basics; advanced pro shop understandings and skills; and thw third a master proshop course dealing with the highest conceptual level and latest advance theoretical investigations into ball technology. We could call it:Advanced Master Pro Shop Theory and Techniciques: Drilling for Touring Players.
    To bad IBPSIA dropped the Advanced Pro Shop Class with Mo as lead instructor, it was the second biggest mistake that organization made. Maybe Brunswick could step up to the plate and finally support a COMPREHENSIVE Certification Program for aspiring high level bowling professionals: coaches, pro shop technicians and lane maintence. Mo could be a lead instructor in all three areas of study.

    Gary Parsons was spot on in his comments. Somtimes I feel Mo doesn’t get credit he rightfully deserves. He’s a great teacher & innovator.
