Jost / Joest Use-it SG pads
« on: December 22, 2019, 09:36:53 PM »
I'm pretty sure the Creating the Difference sanding pads are made by Joest and are one of the SG series of pads.  Any idea if they are the SG, SG2, or Sg3 pads?  The Joest description on their site is a little hard to figure out.  Does anyone have any idea which of they are or which one may work the best for ball surfaces. I'm interested in the netting to allow the does to not clog the abrasive pores and it seems these provide a consistent result for a longer period of time.

Know this is an old post.

I've got some Joest SG/SG2 Pads from a few years ago. Joest sent me some samples.
Saw the CTD Pads this past week. Needed to borrow a 3000 pad, seemed to do the trick.

Going to put a couple in the bag to compare to CTD.

Did you ever figure anything out in regards to this question?

I talked to the rep.  Yes they are the same, but I don't remember which model they are.  The CTD pads are customized a bit on the numbering to where the number will create that surface on the bowling ball..  I just ended up buying a set from CTD.  They last a long time, especially if just being used by hand before competition.
