    1. Yes you can change the surface to whatever environment you need. In this case we wanted to keep it shiny just something we could repeat.

    1. Pretty much, you can’t get that “factory finish” back, but you can always get the surface grit back

  1. However in the middle of the video you actually described how to get the 1500+polish factory condition by using ctd products….which you said in the beginning that its is “not possible”….
    Also why wouldn’t it be possible to recreate a polished ball to factory polish? They are all 5000 to 5500 anyway. That’s not hard to recreate.

    1. Our description is how to get to the same finish grit number as 1500 grit polish. Since that name is misleading and incorrect. You can’t recreate a factory finish as explained in the video and is backed up here. https://youtu.be/r4NQRk07uXs
      So the goal is to put a finish on the ball that you can duplicate that is close to what the factory recommends. Given the amount of process variation in factory finishes getting close is the best you can do without a ball surface scanner.
      We are only at the tip of the iceberg with surface. There is a lot more to explain. We have to get everyone on the same page first, and realize that 1500 grit polish isn’t the process to get it back and isn’t, what’s used either.

    2. @Ronald Hickland Jr In this video you are saying that the surface of a “New Polished” ball can’t be re-created. Not any ball. Factory Polished. So i ask : If EVERY factory ball that has polish is between 5000 and 5500…where is the problem to recreate that? I can see it being harder on balls with no polish or very dull. And i agree 100% on the intent of the video.
      However, in the video you linked, you attempted to prove that factory finish cannot be recreated, but on low grit surface dull balls (2000). Also in that video a) we did not see the robot (as we don’t see it in any videos, which raises questions), b) the results were only of 2 balls (a small sample), and were contradictory (one ball hooked slightly less and one slightly more), and c) the difference was very very small. So i cannot say you “proved” that a dull ball cannot be recreated. You only proved that if we re-create it (get close to the factory number of grit), it will have a slight performance variation. Which 99% of bowlers will not even notice. Such a small variation (IF the experiment is indeed correct), could happen by one of many factors that affect a shot. So maybe only pros might notice it. And it would go away very quickly as the ball shines up or down anyway. Finally, such a small performance variation can EASILY happen by trying to re-make a same surface ourselves (or the pro shop) , as people are rarely so precise with their method of sanding to repeat it exactly the same. (even if they use a pad that has been used once and is not new, can create a similar difference, and even greater).

  2. i noticed on a video a while back you use so fresh so clean and a ctd pad. what would the advantages/disadvantage be using so fresh so clean vs trucut conditioner?
