Polish your ball, yes it works but?
« on: March 15, 2011, 11:30:23 AM »
Don't use this product for more than 1 ball unless you use a Corded drill, if you change the surface according to directions and follow it up with Polish, you will toast a battery pack in nothing flat but so far, I have changed the surfaces at home 3 times without the use of a Spinner with great results, plus the basic set-up cost's about $45.00 versus $250.00 and up for a traditional pro shop style spinner!

That's OK, I will use my Vertex spinner over that contraption any day. To be honest, a personal ball spinner is one of the best investments you will ever make if you are a serious bowler..
 
I also bought mine for less than $200 shipped..

Amen to that, maybe personal bowling shoes and a spare ball have higher priority, but if you actually want to build an arsenal and tweak reactions to your needs, a spinner is the ticket. You will also prolong your equipment's performance, and you learn what you can do with your equipment by surface changes. Highly recommended, but I would not accept a second best solution.

I have one of these. It work oks, but a spinner is better for sanding. I have found that the direction of the sanding lines can be used to fine tune a balls reaction and you can't do that with the PYB product.

 

I do like to use it for polish.

I purchased a Columbia Freeze, drilled it Pin under bridge & Cg swung 45 degrees, used it OOB 4000 w/polish and it sucked, it got 45 feet and screamed left off the dry and was over/under with carry down, the next day I used the PYB system, sanded the Freeze down to 2000 and re-applied Factory finish as I was instructed by Columbia, slightly better results but the same hit or miss reaction, so 3 days later, before my Friday night money league, I took the Freeze down to 2000 and back up to 4000 no polish with the PYB (Polish your ball) system and the reaction I wanted came alive, I bowled a low 700 wich was high on the pair and did not spend a dime at the pro shop using a spinner.

got rid of my vertex 1/2 hp for the PYB system.

 

I don't regret it and actually like it better.
