How to rip the coating off a ball

If you use the new wheels provided in the kit of parts, aka the cleat wheels, for your spinning shooter wheels. You may want to consider covering it in electrical tape for testing and eventually getting new wheels like the regular 6 in wheels. These new wheels easily rip the coating off of the balls.

Re: How to rip the coating off a ball

Thanks for the heads up! I was planing on making a prototype with those wheels. I'll make sure to either use other wheels or at least be very careful.

Re: How to rip the coating off a ball

Yeah we had the same problem in '06 with Aim High, some throwing wheels like to eat the ball coatings!
