Bowler's Grit Comparison Chart Updated to Ver. 2
« on: June 25, 2014, 06:03:12 PM »
Okay, I've finally updated the Bowler's Grit Comparison Chart to Ver. 2

File attached (DATE 10-10-2020).

There's Seven pages

1- The Grit Comparison Chart
2- Grit lists for different products
3- Storms Old and New resurfacing steps, Motiv Factory Finishes
4- Radicals ball surface chart, Mo Pinels Skip a Grit and Some Useful Grit Combos.
5- The Bowling Ball Surface Adjustment Table by jbungard
6- And even though it's OUTDATED there's the Ball Surface Friction Calculator (Outdated)
7- The Six sides of a bowling ball chart.

I'll add more and make any corrections when I can.

Thanks for the update.  I have noticed I am having a problem, but not sure if it is related to your file or not. 

Saving the file and printing it from my computer it is fine.  When I try to print it from your link, (HTML), it looks okay on the screen, but when it prints, all the letters and some numbers are garbage.  Example: on the first page, for the CAB Blocks, Red = RFF, Yellow = YFffFF, Brown = BfFFF.

Modified to add:

I just printed something else off of a webpage and it was fine.  Have a new printer so not sure where the problem lies but this is the first time I have encountered that error.

Given that the Pdf printed okay off your computer, I'd say it might be a issue with the the browsers pdf viewer.

I tried it here and was able to print okay directly from the browser pdf viewer.

I don't know what browser your using but I know some firefox users had some issue with pdf's not printing correctly from the built in PDF viewer.

I use adobes browser plug in and not the built in one.

I use Firefox also.
I print PDF files using the right mouse button, when the cursor is in the file display, to bring up a menu. From that menu I select PRINT. If you print from the FIREFOX FILE drop down menu, then you will get garbage printed.

Very cool. Thank you.
you can't  add a physics term to a bowling term and expect it to mean something.

This...is awesome!  I'd love to understand the Abralon grits au naturale, and with polish!
