Hi all,

Just started to bowling and got my first arsenal, and I want to keep it simple.

Arsenal:

BW Plastic Ball , Straight , Shiny -> Spare Ball
BW Rhino, Angular , Pearl, Long distance -> Light to medium condition
BW Fearless, Continuous, Medium distance -> Medium
DV8 Pitbull, Traction, Shortest distance -> Heavy Oil

Finnish of the balls (according to BW website):

Rhino: 500 Siaair / Crown Factory Compound / Crown Factory Shine
Fearless: 500 Siaair / Crown Factory Compound
Pitbull: 1000 Siaair

I want to have a performance of the ball easy and simple.

My plan was to use 4000 grit on the Rhino, 2000grit on the Fearless, and 1000 grit on the Pitbull
after reading the Wikis (http://wiki.bowlingchat.net/wiki/images ... _Table.pdf)

PDF says:
Wet sanded with new 4000 grit Abralon/Siaair -> Good starting point for light-medium conditions
Wet sanded with new 2000 grit Abralon/Siaair -> Good starting point for medium conditions
Wet sanded with new 1000 grit Abralon/Siaair. -> Good starting point for medium-heavy to heavy conditions

Please let me know what is the difference between Brunswick grit:

Finnish of 500 siar with Crown Factory compound
Finnish of 500 siar with Crown Factory compound with shine

Do I now have the Rhino and Fearless almost in the same grit category without any sanding adjustments?

Please advice also other options?

Rev rates and speed are unknown until I have a chance to go to a Specto Bowling center. (Fast and revs I assume)

Happy holidays,

Ensio

Welcome to BowlingChat

Looks like you have put together a well rounded 4 ball set.

Compound is a liquid abrasive. It can make just about any underlying grit look shiny. Then to add the shine/polish on top of that is further reducing the affect of the underlying grit.

I like your idea of using your own grit choice to be able to replicate and adjust the surface as needed.

If you can figure out your release specs I can recommend layouts for your arsenal.
Check out this link for the needed information for the layouts....
