proper cleaners
« on: August 30, 2005, 12:58:47 PM »
what kind of ball cleaners would you suggest? I have a zone classic, strike zone, and the absolute. On a related note, have you ever seemed to lose your reaction after cleaning a ball with an approved cleaner? It has happened to me in the past.

I use Neo-tac Liquid Nitro for day to day cleaning and Track Clean and Dull for heavy duty cleaning that gets done less often.  As far as losing reaction that could be the case with some cleaners that contain a polishing compound such as Neo-tac's Re-new It.  By hand Re-new it won't seemingly polish the ball, but on a spinner it does seem to have that affect.

Orange clean 409 50/50 with hot water, still use balls that were released in the mid to late 90's, so no loss of reaction here....

All balls will suffer reduced ball reaction over time, anywhere from 30 games to 200 or more. Whether you use an approved ball cleaner, an non-approved ball cleaner or no ball cleaner, it will lose its initial reaction.

these two balls probably 50 games between the two of them. I am just trying make them last.
