    Published on Jun 27, 2018It may be summer, but its always time to improve your game! Come with Lane Side Reviews to Summer School!

    Welcome to Summer School 2018!!

    On this episode, we will be looking at methods of surfacing and resurfacing your bowling equipment, wet VS dry sanding, speed and direction of sanding, and how surface REALLY works.

    We even managed to get in a review of the new USE-IT pads by Creating The Difference, as we compare their life and performance vs regular Abralon and Siaair pads!

    Just a quick search, the CTD pads appear to be:

    The Joest 6 Inch Superpad SG3 pads

    useit®- Superfinishing-Pad SG3
    http://www.joest-abrasives.info/main...smID=111&lid=2

    So start there when looking for a different sources and better pricing.



    About SuperPad SG3 pads - often called Abralon-type pads

    SG3 sanding pads offer a unique design that allows the flexibility of sanding smooth, flat surfaces in addition to curved and complex areas. These pads are useful in virtually every environment including automotive, marine, solid-surface countertop, bowling-ball and woodworking industries. These products may be used dry, damp or wet by hand or with machine - the flexible and open construction allows air and liquids to pass freely. The Jost pads offer superior performance to many other similar pads.

    Coarser grits are best for preparation of surfaces before primer and lacquer applications. Finer grits are recommended for working primers and lacquers, preparing transitions for blending and finishing top coat before polish stages.

    Abralon-type pads dramatically improve solid surface countertop finish quality over common sanding discs. Woodworkers use these between coats and to improve lacquer sheen with finer grits.

    These pads are used for a manufacturer's finish on bowling balls and also allow the bowling enthusiast to tune the break point of the bowling ball by experimenting with different levels of polishing; bowling balls spinners were designed for these.

    Grits available for SG3 are 360, 500, 1000, 2000, 3000 and 4000.

    I watched that video. I have been experimenting with the Smart Star system. I've only used it a few times to experiment with the surface on my Forza GT. I took it down to 2000, which wasn't quite what I was looking for. I did notice that the abralon pads were gunking up. I rinsed them a few times, and didn't think I was getting the same results. I might order some of the CTD pads to try.
    Style: Power Stroker/Tweener - 16.5 - 17.5 mph, PAP 4 1/2 x 0

    In the bag:

    In reserve: Motiv Forza GT, Rotogrip Cell, DV8 Ruckus Schizo, Azo Tactics Particle, LM Sure Strike, LM Absolute Power, LM Terminator

    The archives: Ebonite Grey Wolf (first 300), Red Wolf (first 700). Just can't let them go.
