Thx for that info I didn’t know that
Very nice to see the difference and how quick it absorbs the oil 👍🏼. Is that the south point?
Steve T definitely looks like South Point (the non tournament set of lanes), where the bowlers journal tournament is held.
Yes it is
While its information I’ve known, it was still great to see the actual demonstration. Education is key!
Ron, I use rubbing alcohol to clean the oil off my urethane ball (1992 Ebonite Nitro) with a regular terry towel, should I be using something else?
That vid should help a bit
Ronald Hickland Jr OK, 30+ minute video, but I just need a yes/no on using rubbing alcohol on my urethane ball? Just didn’t think I needed to use purple stuff or Wow! On an ancient piece like this…
We tend to provide details answers so that it’s not subjective. Most people would have said No, with no reason for why. You can’t learn without understanding the why.
@bowl1820 Hi. As I suspected. Been cleaning the urethane with rubbing alcohol for 10 years now, started using ‘HookIt’ for the resin balls, and now using Ron’s products as well.
I miss the smell of brand new bowling balls
Heeeey south point and chattin(mechanic) walking in the background in beginning of the video lol
Is the absorption different for a polished or Pearl reactive resin instead of sanded?
It’s different based on the coverstock first. Then the color second, then the additives pearl,sparkle, ect, last.
Ronald Hickland Jr the color?
Depends on the coverstock. We show variations in absorbtion on our channel
That’s a good demonstration with oil on the two types of balls!!
Even with the new SPEC cover. It does absorb way less ll.
Lol way less than what?….see where the issue is? Don’t believe everything you hear. Question everything
@Ronald Hickland Jr Ι agree. 1st time i heard about the Pro-Motion, Storm said it doesn’t absorb oil. Which didn’t make sense to me, as it is a reactive coverstock. I asked a staffer about it but he didn’t reply…I don’t like false advertising…
Interesting…thank you for the demo!
So now I know I need The Clear! Gonna get some now!! 😁
Do pearl reactive cover stocks also absorb oil in the same manor?
Yes they do. They’re still porous even with the polish and the pearl additives don’t effect absorption rates.
So with the new rule , we got to use a dry towel to wipe between frames , i had a problem cause i usually have alcohol on my towel , so now if feels like im just spreading the oil now , on my urethane, came back scuffed lots of oil
Use a leather shammy and not a towel. Leather works really well, especially on urathane.
Hello Ron. Detox to draw oil from the cover stock also draw out plasticizer. Does So Fresh So Clean prevent the ball from drying out and becoming brittle?
It can help. The Clear would be a better product for that purpose.
Thanks for choosing to do this test with exactly the Storm Pro-Motion. It’s good to clear things out and know the facts.
That looks like an awesome bowl and shop.
Southpoint, Las Vegas
Eric Jaeger ohhhh I was just at Gold Coast it looked like it was out there
Which cover stock is usually best on heavy oil?
reactive resin, urethane isnt usually in play unless there is friction on the lane. coverstock strength for resin balls usually goes solid , hybrid , pearl in terms of coverstock strength, but thats also very dependent on core shape and layouts

Heard every where that the Spec cover didn’t absorb. 🤔
Does the Urethane remove the oil from the lanes? Does it redeposit back on the lanes?
It does both. That is why it’s important to wipe it off.
Good stuff. I bowl with both balls now. And I feel complete
