    Default polishing a ball?

    So bought Motiv 5000 polish awhile back but never really used it. After a few weeks ago when the lanes were bone dry figured i'd polish my Black Widow Gold just in case. It had been 3000 grit CTD on a spinner. So hit it with a 1500 CTD pad then a quick once over with the polish (all on the spinner). Threw it a couple of times last week in warm ups to get a feel for it and didn't notice much difference. So today threw it back on the spinner and just hit it with polish again but this time about 7 or 8 seconds per side. Will it make a difference polishing longer even though the underlying is still 1500? Or will i need to go to a smoother grit then polish again? The odds of me needing this ball are slim but want to have it in case we run into those conditions again.

    Well glad I polished it today cause I needed it tonight. Lanes were real dry again. Was hitting the pocket consistently so thought it would be a good night. Didn't factor in leaving all those corner pins and having to use my oldest ball I own...lol. But rolled a 249 with it
