if you review your sponsor apparel options - and use the Foxwind gear - and activate the set bonus - of L4 you get 15% chance to save a lost ball, L6 you get 30% chance to save lost ball, and with L9 set bonus of foxwind gear you get 60% chance to save a lost ball.
So there you have it - but you will have to make concessions to opt for using foxwind apparel and most are not willing to do that.
