Cash cover adjustment...for a buddy
« on: November 01, 2018, 07:56:56 PM »
My buddy has a cash, it's hooking too early etc. Same old story

Oob it's 500/1500...

Is it a cover that we should:

A: polish it over the oob grit (potentially resurface then polish)
B: no polish...just play with 3000 or 4000 grits
C: take it to 4000+polish (storm style)

Any experience?

I'm not speaking from experience with the cover itself, but I would try suggestion B and then C if need be. 3000 > 4000 > Polish. Then if you get it right before polish it's easier to replicate, but of course could run the whole spectrum up to 4k + polish.

Someone who is familiar with their covers could weigh in with some more insight though.

Do you think it's a small adjustment needed?

If it's something small I'd just take 4000 to it with heavier pressure.

If you think a large adjustment is needed, definitely go higher grit and polish

Cash cover is stupid strong.  My More Cash needs 4000+polish+slip agent to use on house shot and even then only get a game maybe game in half before start getting pocket splits.  I tend to have opposite problem where ball won't hook at all unless I put as little surface as possible on it but I made mistake of putting a really strong drilling on it as well.

The house just isn't putting out oil, he wants to just polish it up...

But my thoughts are it takes away from what the cash it by just polishing it.

I want to go 4k and try it.

Then if not + polish..

I just didn't know if any radical guys knew what worked best..

Why doesn't he just ball down? That seems easier to me, but I don't know his situation.

+1.  To be kind of blunt my More Cash has been one of my more disappointing balls.  Not a versatile ball at all on anything but a flood and there is a reason why Radical moved away from that core.  All that said yes less surface and your friend is probably going to need to keep the ball in the oil as long as possible unless very speed dominant.  That ball is made for playing in the middle of the lane imo.

So our plan to deal with a ball hooking too early due to the house not putting out enough volume is to essentially polish up and continue throwing an asymmetrical 2.50RG .048 differential and .020 intermediate diff ball with a strong solid cover intended for lanes with decent volume?

I just want to make sure I understand that what we're looking at is to first adjust the cover as opposed to considering a ball change.  :o

Is our goal to throw this ball or to score?

No he never ever gets the use the ball because it's too early and strong.

The goal was to try and figure out some sort of alternative so he can actually use the ball.

The guy's got plenty of stuff he scores well he's just not a surface guy, he can probably beat most of you fools 😂😂😂. 

I just don't know Jack about radical equipment and he bought the ball because of all the hype of how strong it is..

Also, the reason doesn't matter...the guy has balled down to the point it sits in his locker for good.

Also, I told him, polishing a cash kinda ruins the intent of the ball....just trying to help him.

This is the type of thinking that gets people in trouble in anything different than the house shot. You drilled an oil ball, but don't have enough oil for it. So he's going to change the surface enough to be able to use it on the house shot. Then when he hits an oil slick, it's going to look like the rest of his bag.

Personally, (Global plug coming, because me), if I have a Contiuum in the bag at 2000 and I can't use it on the house shot, it's the wrong ball. Why put a governor on a Ferrari? Use it for what it's intended for.

Sunk cost fallacy hit me some too.  Spend top shelf price and then damn it going to make it work.  What really soured me on top of it was seeing the ball go on clearance at buddies just a few months later because surprise ball wasn't great.  Learned my lesson when got much more useful Fix for under $90.  Someday perhaps ball will useful when I need to burn a hole in a long heavy pattern for team or something.

Lol y'all think too much...

Also, I'm one of those guys who doesn't by too many high end releases as they aren't useable by me unless I'm on the heaviest of conditions. I get that point..

But the reality is he wants to use his ball, and he can refinish it anytime he wants...
