1500 polish vs 4000 abralon?
« on: March 26, 2007, 02:04:59 AM »
I've been tinkering with my new Pyro, and I'm curious to know what the difference between the 1500-grit polish cover and a 4000 grit abralon sanding is. My guess is that the ball will still go pretty long, but pick up a hair or two earlier. Anybody have experience doing this?

I am curious about this myself.  Like 2000 Abralon and 4000 Abralon vs 1500 grit polish.

I've tried my Pyro at 1500 polished, 2000 grit abralon, and 1000 grit abralon...

1500 polished - clean through heads and mids and strong but jumpy off the breakpoint

2000 grit abralon - clean through heads and mids but smoother and not as strong off the breakpoint

1000 grit abralon - clean through heads, reads the mids well and is strong and smooth off the breakpoint

I really like the look of the Pyro at 1000 grit abralon.

My guess is if you took it to 4000 grit it would be longer, smoother, and weaker off the breakpoint than 2000 grit...would be OK for a "high rev" player but nothing more than a spare ball for a stroker...unless you were bowling on really dry conditions...
That which doesn't kill you will only make you stronger, that which doesn't make you stronger is a waste of time!
