Surface prep fpr impulsa zone
« on: October 12, 2005, 08:53:08 AM »
Have a impulse zone that seems to be a little flakey, I'm bowling on lite to med oil with some carrydown and wonder if I could get some suggestions on surface prep.  It's drilled with pin over the ring finger and the mb at about 4:30.  Thanks appreciate your advice.....Dr "C"

I'd try just knocking off the factory polish with a gray Scotch Brite pad or maybe wet sand it to 1000 or 1500 grit.  Smooth enough so it won't roll out early, but allow some bite in the carry down.

Agreed, a smooth wetsand finish is the answer in carrydown situations.

If the IZ coverstock works like the one on the Fuze Eliminator, either try a high, high grit (4.000 grit must be out there somewhere...), or ask a pro shop for a Cerium Oxyde Trizact finish (highly recommendable for Brunswick's particle balls!) or polish it back up. Your ball is drilled long and strong, I wonder how you control it on medium-dry conditions?

I recently took my Eliminator to 1.500 grit and it DAMN EARLY read the lane, making it a true heavy oil ball! The light load particle coverstock grips like velcro!
