Soniq question
« on: October 26, 2018, 03:29:05 PM »
I had a Marvel pearl crack out on me. Storm replaced with a Soniq. What should I expect out of this compared to the Marvel pearl? I am a little hesitant as I have a hyroad that I have not matched up with. Drilling and surface advice welcome. Thank you

Cleaner and sharper on the backend than what the Marvel Pearl was.

You could break the Polish with a 4000 pad and help get the cover closer to the R2X cover. Pin-PAP distance could stay the same as the Marvel Pearl and I would personally add 10-15 degrees to the VAL angle to round it out a bit more. This is all of course if youíre hoping to get the Son!Q as close to the Marvel Pearl as you can.

Thank you for the reply. Why would you add 10-15 degrees to the Val angle? Is this to smooth it out?

Pretty much, and thatís probably a leave it or take it kind of thing. Breaking that polish on the Son!Q will help with that more so.
