    Default What kind of sandpaper is used for resurfacing?

    There is sandpaper for sanding wood and the other is for sanding metal. Which one would I use on my bowling balls? I use two plastic balls and one urethane ball. The balls I use are in my signature. I do my resurfacing by hand. I guess it should be wet or dry sandpaper.
    Arsenal: Columbia 300 Yellow Dot Bleeder Plastic Ball 15lbs, Columbia 300 Lava Ball Plastic 14lbs, Blue Hammer urethane 14lbs.
    High game 276 High scratch series 710 Bowling 36 years Never hit that 300 game.

    You want Wet/Dry Paper, But Most people these days use pads ( Abralon, Siaair, Trucut etc.) for sanding balls. Paper is a lower cost option and you can now get it in P-Scale grits like that used by pads.

    I use paper (plus pads) quite often, I usually get 3M Automotive Wet/Dry (Walmart, Autozone etc.) Big sheet cut it into 4 pieces.

    Example:

    Right handed Stroker, high track ,about 13 degree axis tilt. PAP is located 5 9/16” over 1 3/4” up.Speed ave. about 14 mph at the pins. Medium rev’s.High Game 300, High series 798
