Anyone else experience this with a Shammie?
« on: May 23, 2019, 11:33:48 AM »
I got a Storm Shammie and whenever I used it on Storm/Roto equipment it would work as advertised, but when I would use it on a ball from a different company it would stick to that ball like it was glued on.

I highly doubt that a Shammie will only work on whatever brand produced it, has anyone else experienced that type of problem?

Since no one has responded yet. Nope, I have not seen that issue, but I am using a Genesis Shammie, so not sure it counts....?

I have a Storm shammy and use it on Motiv equipment with no problems.

All other balls, or was there one specific ball it was worse on?  Could be a ball with traction particle in it... just a guess.

Yeah only use a Shammie on urethane and my Roto Shammie loves all my Visionary/Faball/AMF urethane the same.
Less is more especially with forum posts.

The only non-storm/Roto ball I can think of was my OG Blue Dot
