could the absolute handle a flood?

in general, bowler stats aside, if you drilled an absolute very strong do you think it could handle a flood oob?

just left it at 600, it looks like OOB condition though.
feels smooth and looks dulled up.

it had polish on it from the previous owner, and i bowl in a league that puts down med/heavy/long oil about 15 minutes before the league starts.

the ball was skidding waaaay too far down the lane with the polish.
there is definately enough head oil for this bad boy at 600 grit.

i have an original inferno in case there is just medium oil
and a combat zone tracer for light oil.

will update tuesday night.

---------------------------------UPDATE------------------------------

Absolute Inferno <--- Layout With 600 Grit Green Scotch Brite Finish

234-192-179 = 605
NO BALL SWITCHING EXCEPT FOR SPARES

the decreasing scores are no coincidence
the less oil this ball had to work with, the softer it hit from rolling out.

but when this thing has oil, forget it, it really crushes.
i swear i heard a pin snap on a strike in the first game.

i didnt think there was a ball that hit harder than my Original Inferno but the Absolute has taken its place.

when i start leaving 10's on solid hits and see the ball deflect off the pocket then i know it's time for the Original Inferno.

the 600 grit finish makes it cut through more oil, better mid lane and a really hard arc to the pocket, not snappy or jumpy, just a pronounced move.

The rollout isnt too bad when you start treading in medium oil, just enough to leave 10 pins to let you know its time to switch.

i think the green scotch brite finish is perfect for this ball to match up with med/heavy oil.
