Light hit with siaair pad

Many times you hear people say they “hit” their ball with an abrasive pad to increase reaction . If starting with a polished ball and a spinner how would you do it ?

Many times it's just by hand.

I'll just take a 3000 pad most of the time and use it until I don't see shine

+1 by hand.  Light grey or gold scotch brite great for knocking shine off by hand as well if don't get carried away.  Still generally when I want to knock polish off on a spinner I will go ahead and do 20 sec a side (or full 30 if want a more full resurface) with maroon scotch brite and then go 30+ sec a side with Royal compound.  Saves on pads but granted not as precise so doing say maroon, light grey and then 3k pad.
Less is more especially with forum posts.

Scotchbrite also works well, and is cheaper. Burgundy=320-500 grit, green =600 grit, grey=800grit, white=1000-1200grit.
