What do you use for ball polish

Just picked up a spinner for doing my own stuff. Was wondering what you guys use for polish. A pso I know uses nu finish car polish. What are your preferences/opinions/suggestions. Thanks for your input

Re: What do you use for ball polish

I know the nu finish has no wax but I couldn't find anything about silicones. Is there any real differences between car polish and bowling polish.

Re: What do you use for ball polish

polish is grit in suspension. Avoid silicone and wax and you're fine. No real difference unless you're talking to a ball polish manufacturer. The grit can differ and there may be no car polish as fine as Lane1 Secret Sauce...but polish that fine is out of vogue at the moment. I like it anyway

Thatís right. Keep using the same rag just making it wet again. The secret sauce will last a very long time. Just a few drops each time you use it. Itís very liquid compared to other polishes.

Thanks guys. Ordered some secret sauce. Anxious to give it a try. Have a ball that I want to try a polished surface on.

Re: What do you use for ball polish

I've used Finesse yrs. ago (very expensive!) Using Meguiars M9 Swirl remover on a 3M sponge and I'll put that finish up against anything. Will put a hi shine on a P600 base. Take it to a P3k or P4k and wow! Like a mirror. (only $9.97 for 16 oz. @ Wal-mart)

Re: What do you use for ball polish

Personally I try to avoid polish. I prefer the consistency of sanding vs time/pressure/heat sensitivity of polish.

I'm actually curious about the 5K diamond dust pads that Jayhawk has for the more polished look from a sanding pad.

When I do use polish, I have a bottle of Secret Sauce that I've had for about 8 years.

I would rather not use it either but my house has wood lanes and almost no oil so we need polish to save some energy or ball dies half way down the lane.

I bowl on wood lanes as well, but they put out a 42'+ house shot and I'm speed dominant (or rev challenged, lol)

Right, I am the same. About 17.5mph at the sensor down lane, and low 300 for revs. The THS they lay down at my House is 40í.
