I was wondering if anyone has tried the Bill Hall Tri-Grip layout? How does it differ from a traditional grip fit? Is it more comfortable? Does it look visibly different?

The best guy to ask is Bill Hall you can e-mail him on his web site.
I do drill the tri grip but I have just been using it for a few weeks now. For me fits my hand better and has raised my rev rate a little.
during this summer I will Focus on staying behind the ball and working the inside of the ball with this grip.

I was recently provided w/instructions on how to do a Tri Grip from an experienced pro shop operator that has Bill Halls video. I tried it on a couple of plugged balls to the best of my understanding & I do like the feel it gives me. I get more ball contact w/the "meaty" part of the upper palm & the ball sits in a more relaxed position. I am able to stay up the back more & longer which has helped my get away from "chicken winging" it which I have had a bad habit of doing for many years. However, it also lets me come around the ball when needed. Definitely a cleaner release than I previously had. You will also find that you may be able to reduce the reverse pitch in your thumb. I tend to fly out of the ball now. I have a long thumb so I typically have 1/8-1/4 reverse. My next ball will be at ZERO reverse & 3/16 left.
I would definitely recommend trying it out on a couple of plugged ball first to tweek it to get the final feel you are looking for. Good Luck !!!

I've looked at the website and would like to try this grip but don't see any pro shop anywhere near me to get a ball drilled. It looks very comfortable which my old hand needs.
