Titan Solid Edition
« on: November 05, 2015, 09:58:07 PM »
A guy on our team has an old Titan Solid Edition that he wants to try using as a second choice when his Storm VG isn't working for him on our THS, and wants me to throw it on my spinner and "work" on it.  Problem is, it is so old I can't find out anything about it other than it is a polished solid.  So, what kind of surface and finish would you guys recommend that I put on it?

Since it's Superflex, I'd try 2000 then polish.

That was around 2005. Most Columbia made balls were polished by sanding with 600 grit (CAMI grade) green Scotch-Brite pads and then polished with Degree polish.
Today that's the equivalent of 1200 grit FEPA grade + a medium-high gloss polish.
I'd sand it 500/1000/1500 grit and then use a good grade polish on it, like Snake Oil, Xtra Shine or Powerhouse Factory Finish polish.

Thanks for the info, guys.  Those are along the lines of what I was thinking of trying.  Who knows, this ball might work great for him for the 3rd game or so.

Titan is an awesome ball and Superflex still works on mediums.
