If you don't want to change the surface texture (grit level), try using a little of the black labelled Black Magic polish.  It will give you more length with a bit stronger back end.  If that doesn't work, use a bit more of the Black Magic, preferably applied on a spinner.  If you still need more length, use a polish with grit in it to make the actual surface texture of the ball smoother.  If necessary after that, more Black Magic--etc.

Going over the ball lightly with Neotac Renew-It will also give you more length, but Renew-It does--gradually--change the surface texture of the ball until after enough application you end up at around 2000 grit, maybe more, maybe less depending on if you do it by hand or on a spinner.

Sometimes a lot of experimentation is necessary to find the combination of surface treatments that work the best.  Keep notes.  That way, when you find something that works the way you want, you'll know how you got there.

By the way, you're in the wrong forum for this topic.  The Coverstock Preparation forum would be better.
