Schlegel WINS..! with PGI
PBA Hall of Famer, Ernie Schlegel (whom is considered to be
"The Godfather of the Grip industry..." ) had recently acquired
several sets of "Perfecta-Grips" to then evaluate for his parent
company, Pro Sports Systems -of- Vancouver, Washington.
For those either too young (or too old) to remember... Pro Sports
pioneered the standard "finger & thumb grips" which, for decades
have brought comfort to countless millions of bowlers worldwide.
While on a customer appreciation tour in Michigan, Ernie - in possessing
the wisdom to view the Perfecta-Grip as compatible with [rather than...
competitive to] PSS - saw a chance to combine the best of both worlds...
their...finest "Grips & Solids" in the world,
housed in our perfect vehicle - the Perfecta-Grip!
Then - immediately upon Schlegel's return trip home, from The Great Lakes,
he tested his new combination, by entering a Northwestern PBA Regional.
He eventually defeated fellow PBA champion, Chris Warren...257-238, (& won
top prize of $2,000 for 1st.) his very first tournament using Perfecta-Grip inserts.
As if that's not enough, at age 61...he's now believed to be the oldest player
in history, to ever win a regular PBA regional tournament...Congratulations!!!
In addition to Ernie... PGI would also like to thank and commend Pro Sports
Systems founder and visionary Don Heimbigner, for nearly 3 decades of fine
service while introducing all that we consider to be the best grips ever made.
