Command Zone ARC???
« on: July 13, 2003, 09:00:00 PM »
Does anyone know what the factory finish is on the Command Zone ARC?  Also what should you use to do surface changes on it?  Should I use sandpaper or Scotchbrite...or with either work?

Any help would be appreciated.

TIA,
Bruce

My CZA came out of box in a sheen finish; not dull, not shiny.  As Bob says, the factory finish is around 1000 grit.

If you modify the cover by hand, I'd recommend using ScotchBrite pads.  If you're experienced with using a ball spinner, I don't see why you couldn't use either sandpaper or SB.  The N'Control coverstock is simple resin, not particle.

mine came from the factory with a typical finish for brunswick balls---wetsanded 600 grit and 2 minutes in the lustrekleen machine. the lanes i was using them on were freshly oiled with carrydown from open play. mine was wetsanded 320 grit and it barely moved. this was the condition not the balls fault.

Thanks for the info everyone!

Actually what I'm looking to do is get a little more lenght out of it.  One of my teammates that is new to bowling had been using a urethane scout to learn with and was ready for a new ball so I gave him my Command Zone.  He had it plugged and re-drilled...loves the ball.  I will play around with the surface and see what happens.

Thanks,
Bruce
