Get more lenght out of the 4D
« on: January 06, 2005, 11:05:29 AM »
Does any one out there know what I could put onto my Hammer 4D to give it more length on medium-drier lane conditions.  

Any suggestions welcome thanks
Mark

Sorry if I was unclear but I meant in the since of polishes or cleaners that will add length to a bowling ball.

Most bowling ball polishes will add length to any resin surface ball. Some of them, like Track's Delayed Reaction and Neo-Tac's Control-IT, also reduce the backend, if that's what you need.

The 4D was exceptionally grabby and very high flaring ball. Normally I would not have expected it to be usable on a medium-dry oil pattern without a lot of speed AND a very weak drilling. I guess it might also have absorbed so much oil over the years that it's a much weaker ball (read: smaller hooking) these days.

charlest, you're right it has soak up a lot of oil after my dad used it for 4 years and I've used it for a year. It always worked better for me at least on broken donw lanes. But it was original drill agressive and has not been redrilled since. So I will try one of those 2 cleaners you have suggested and let you know what happens.  Thanks again
