    1. Agreed, I especially like the 5000 as I can get very similar to polished finish on my spinner without actually using polish.

  1. I need a 80 grit pad Avalon I also need a 120 Avalon pad and a 220 Avalon pad I need all three of the Avalon pads

  2. To make this a fair comparison, why didnโ€™t you use the CTD pad dry like the other two, or spray the conditioner on all 3 pads?

    1. To be fair we needed to use what is recommended by the company for each pad. We recommend conditioner for use with TruCut Sanding Pads

    2. @Ronald Hickland Jr to be fair you should have done the TruCut pad dry as well. Don’t get me wrong I love your pads there the only pads I use know but it would have made this demonstration fair if all were done the same way.

  3. Ron, I understand that CTD pads are recommended with the conditioner and the other brands do not state that, however can you redo with conditioner/water with the other pads as it would impact the results.

    Not saying CTD pads are not better, but this really isnโ€™t a fair comparison.

    1. It’s meant to be a comparison that a normal person would do. They would not use Conditioner with Abralon and 90% of people that use Abralon use it dry. We recommend using Conditioner with our pads. We have videos on this channel already that show using Abralon and water. It didn’t make sense to redo that. Here is one example. https://youtu.be/D_KUvJATlQA

    2. I do get that, but I would think that most of the people using CTD pads on the lanes do not use conditioner even though you do recommend it. This is kinda like that old Edge shaving gel credit card ad. A different angle can make one product seem better regardless of whether it’s actually is or not. Please do one where all are under similar conditions and you will have more than one true believer and at least one more loyal customer… ๐Ÿ‘

  4. No scan to verify that the ball was 3000 after being hit with the 3000 pad, no moisture added to the abrasion or siaair. I see that you stated that most people donโ€™t use these pads moist, but using one pad as youโ€™ve recommended and different methods makes the โ€œscientificโ€ test completely invalid. This isnโ€™t scientific information , itโ€™s an non-scientific advert. The only fair test is all three pads dry, or all three pads with exactly the same conditioner applied, verifying the ball is 3000 after each hit with the 3000 grit pad.

    1. @Paul Thomas all he was saying is to be fair across the board and not try to make one pad better than the other. If the pad does what it says on the pad why not just do the same process for all pads

  5. I asked the pro shop operator at our lanes this same question one night. His response was: “2000 grit is 2000 grit, regardless if you use Abralon, Scotch Brite, or a fu**ing rock.”

    1. ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ no it’s not. That’s what is said when you don’t have a tool to check things with and instead you go by what you see. At one point everyone said the world was flat too. Based on what they saw. ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚
