Yes, I have drilled at least a half a dozen ball for myself w/ring finger through the pin. This puts the pin @ 4 1/4" from my PAP. Give be a good read on med. to med.-heavy patterns depending on the surface of the ball. Should work well on the TR2 but have not considered it on the red QZ1. May have to give that a try myself. Let us know how the TR2 reacts if you decide to drill it that way. Dump the Utah stuff & go w/the men from Michigan.
