Paradigm is loosing some pop
« on: December 22, 2005, 02:02:21 PM »
When I got the paradigm about 2 months ago, it was hard to control and hooked a whole lot. Now it has settled in and seems to be more controlable. After league night I use two ebonite powerhouse cleaners on it and it seems to pull alot of dirt out. However, I don't see any track marks yet and the ball is the most durable storm ball I've ever thrown. Vertigo, Recharge, Ace, TripleX, all had visible track marks galore at around 50 games. My paradigm seems to be loosing a little hook power after each week. Is there anything to use which will restore it back to new performance?
Currently for sale:
X-Factor Vertigo 16lbs, one drill, <50 games.
Triple X-Factor 16lbs, one drill, <50 games
Columbia Wild 16lbs, one drill, <30 games

You may want to consider using Ebonite's hook again to restore it.  This coverstock absorbs oil and it's likely that the ball is now saturated.  Hook again will pull all of the oil out of the ball and you'll be amazed at how much oil a ball can absorb.
