  1. My pso will just use a wet sand, no polish. I have a Helios and it’s shiny just not polished. Would that make a difference as well?

    1. If you did a low grit polish (aka 1500p) you would still be very clean through the fronts with a snappy backend like demonstrated in the video. If you did a higher grit (aka 4k+) you would still be clean through the fronts with an earlier roll and more aggressive reaction off the dry. The polish compound creates a barrier between the lane and ball surface which creates more length and tamer reaction.

    1. It is an Acronym that relates to the average peak-to-valley surface roughness of the coverstock of a bowling ball. Higher RA relates to more “teeth” on the ball. Bowling balls must adhere to a scale of 50 microns or less at a surface grit of 500.

  2. I would love to see RA comparison between smooth edge and rough edge compound using the same prep procedure.
