Suggestion for Inferno users
« on: September 01, 2003, 05:58:58 PM »
Try sanding or scuffing off the factory finish, and then refinish the ball yourself (or have your pro shop do it) to whatever finish you think would be best to try first.  This is what I did, and I've seen numerous references here in the forum from people who have done that and been very successful with their Infernos--GREG HOPPE comes to mind.  I had the pro shop scuff and then repolish mine when I got it.  I've since ended up at 2000 grit, then shined up with Black Magic.  It looks pretty much like out-of-the-box like that.

I think there's at least a little evidence to suggest that many people are better off taking off whatever the factory puts on the ball and then refinishing it themselves.

I'd say it's at least worth a try if you're throwing an Inferno straight out of the box with bad luck.  Try the above and see if it helps before you give up on this ball.
