Surface on Vapor Zone Hybrid
« on: August 17, 2020, 12:17:34 PM »
I was watching a video by JR Raymond a few days ago of his review on the Vapor Zone Hybrid, in that video he said that the ball which comes at 3000 finish looked a little to dull so he hit it with a 2000 pad before throwing it. Am I not understanding something, 2000 is a stronger finish than 3000 so how does a 2000 take away the dullness ? I would have thought hitting it with 4000 would have made it shinny, any help I would appreciate maybe I have been doing the exact opposite from what I have been doing
Bless the LORD o my soul and all that is within me bless his holy name

Even though the box surface is 3000, he said it looked more dull than that. So he used a wet 2000 pad to bring the surface up to where he thought it should be

Just because the box says it's supposed to be 3000 doesn't mean that's what it actually is. fresh pad vs used pad creates a difference. That's why some people say they like changing surface before ever throwing a ball.

Also something to be noted with the Brunswick Brands, they donít list the RA value intention like other companies do, like Storm says the Phaze 2 is 3000 because that is their intended final grit, but fresh vs used pads allow for deviation. What Brunswick does is list their finishing grits, and the actual steps to get a ball to box finish, not just the last pad they used.
