I hope that's a picture of the ball before you resurfaced it

YES.

That thing could absolutely use a complete resurface. Did you use a ball spinner at 2000?

Re: found a storm modern marvel at the bowling alley today

i used a resurfacing kit you do with a drill, and i did give it to someone on my high school bowling team today. it didn't hook as much for him but he has a higher ball speed than i do, also could someone give me info on the layout. the pin was in the hole of the right finger (not the middle finger)

That ball definitely needs a full and complete resurface, but you already gave it to someone else, so that's up to them if they want it resurfaced. I don't trust those drill kits to do a good job, spinner is much better, but a pro shop with a Haus machine is the best.

That's not a resurfacing, you just sanded it at 2000.

A true "Resurfacing" is where you remove all the track lines, nicks, gouges and surface blemishes to make a ball look like new again.

It's called the "RING" finger .
