Polishing a ball does not eliminate the hook it just changes the reaction.  In general polished balls have more backend reaction because the ball is storing up it's energy more than a sanded ball.  If you are throwing those two balls with a decent amount of dry on the backend I would expect exactly what you described to be the case.

The Secret Agent has a particle cover, so it will tend to have more traction in oil than the Special since it is a Solid Reactive.

hope this helps.
