How do Abralon pads work?
Abralon pads, Mirka pads, and TruCut sanding pads are used to adjust the bowling ball’s surface. The lower the grit on the sanding pad, the earlier the ball will hook down lane. Conversely, the higher the grit, the later the bowling ball hooks down lane.
What does 4000 grit Abralon mean?
We have one ball at 1,000-grit Abralon and one ball at 4,000-grit Abralon. The higher the number, the finer the grit used on the surface of the ball, creating a smoother texture. The lower the number, the more coarse. We’ll start with the 4,000-grit surface, which gives the bowler a moderately strong ball reaction.
Can I use sandpaper on my bowling ball?

How often should I resurface my bowling ball?

What grit should I sand my bowling ball?
Or sand if you want to change the surface of the ball to suit the lane condition. The rougher grits are for oily conditions such as 500 or 800 grit. The 1000 or 2000 grit is for medium oil conditions. The 4000 grit sanding pad will give a sheen to the surface of the ball without using polish.
What bowling ball do the pros use?
Most pro bowlers use 16-pound balls, although more than you think use 15-pounders. Another method is to add one or two pounds to the weight of the house ball you normally use. A heavier ball drilled specifically to your hand will seem to weigh about the same as a house ball two pounds lighter.
What does adding surface to a bowling ball do?
The lower the grit of surface used the more friction the ball creates on the lane, this will lead to the ball hooking earlier and smoother. Higher grit surfaces make the ball hook later and can be combined with polish to make the ball go even longer and create a bigger backend motion, especially for higher rev players.
