    Default Resurfacing a Storm ball - 1500 grit polished

    I am looking to resurface my Storm Rocket. I see that according to Storm, the process would be:

    1. 500-grit pad – Sand firmly for 30 seconds on all four sides.
    2. 1000-grit pad – Sand lightly for 20 seconds on all four sides.
    3. 2000-grit pad – Sand lightly for 20 seconds on all four sides.
    4. 4000-grit pad – Sand lightly for 20 seconds on all four sides.
    5. Storm® Step Two™ – Polish lightly for 15 seconds on each side.

    I have the pads and the equipment (using the Polish Your Ball system) but not the "Step Two" compound.

    Question - Is there an equivalent of the Storm Step Two compound that I can substitute? I ask because the Step Two compound only appears to be available in large quantities (one quart) and would cost more than what I would pay to just bring the ball to a pro shop and pay somebody else to do it.

    I think the Step 2 Compound is a 1500 grit polish so anything equivalent will probably be fine. I would think Storm Reacta Shine cleaner would probably do the trick as well.

    These are similar , Brunswick Royal Compound, Rough buff (if you can still find any), Brunswick Crown Factory compound, Powerhouse Clean'N Sheen or Smooth, they can be found in small sizes

    Turtle Wax's Rubbing compound (the red tub/bottle)

    Just use a little at a time to see if you get the surface you want
