Anyone know a good place in Jersey that does Ball Drills?

I'm thinking of getting this t hing, http://www.bowling.com/display.asp?SKU=60400279, but I need it shipped and drilled by Friday for an event. I think there's a place in Fairlawn right across from the McDonalds, but I'll be damned I can remember if the do hole drilling...

Any places that do one day work, most appreciated

Have you checked with your local bowling alley? Most have a Pro Shop that can custom drill the ball.

I agree with Patrick. The pro shop in a bowling alley will do a better job than a sporting goods store any day.

Nope, didn't check with the bowling alley. Space seems like a premium at these places, so I didn't even think they'd have a place for it. Not a bad idea, though. Wait for the new one to get drilled ,practice bowling and get my game up while waiting

But if your buying a ball like that then you probably aren't worried about the quality of drilling unless it is a spare ball?

It's very tempting to buy it, assuming the check writing at the office gets done today. I don't know how much two day shipping would be on something that heavy, but it would have to be here and drilled by Friday. The bowling social event is then, and this would be gotten for 1- I think it's cool
and 2 - as a conversation starter

I had my son's ball drilled at Circle Lanes in Ledgewood about 10 days ago.
Took 15 minutes.
The guy was very nice and drilled the holes one at a time, remeasuring before drilling the second and third holes.

Are those Vis a Balls a clear ball with the image being printed on a flat sheet in the center? Like this (|) if you look from the side?
