    Starting up again after a twenty odd year absence 😱 Anyone selling a set of size 3's? I'm at a loss as what to buy tbh, used to play with henselite classic deluxe but it looks like they come in all shapes and colors now!! And what's it with shoes, do most folk wear white shoes? Back in the day that was for dicks 😂

    Plenty of decent white trainer type shoes on the market that won't make you look like a dick

    Each to their own, I wear grey henselite trainer type shoes and love them. I have just gone back to Taylor Aces after trying a few seasons with a Taylor Blaze. Who you playing for?

    Big Kev has persuaded me to join liberton, not interested in playing for the team though, I golf in a Wednesday.... Mangaged to get a seat of a set of Taylor aces and a bag for 40. I have to drive to Blairgowrie to get them though!!! A bit of a trek but a bargain, I think??

    40 can't complain at that!

    Had a wee roll last night but with the cold weather and heavy green it was hard to judge. Not played for years so my weight wasn't the best, they seemed to hold straight with weight and take a nice bow on a draw though 👍

    Back after a couple of years' absence myself. Using different bowls now (size 4 rather than my old 3 mediums).. they're green so I am already convinced they're for me.

    Wee throw about with my mate this week just to get into the swing again, could have been worse but plenty room for improvement. Maybe play a sunday comp before my first championship tie next week

    Have also stayed 100% sober so far at the green
