What grit should I use to sand a bowling ball?


Answer by  KWags1977 (427)

Depending on what you want the ball to do, you can use 1,000 to 2,000 grit Abralon pads or 400 to 800 grit sand paper to make the ball hook more in the oil. If you want less hook, you can use 4,000 grit Abralon pads or 1,000 to 1,500 grit sand paper to get the ball to hook less.

I would probably use a pretty light grit. The purpose of sanding is to get off imperfections and bumps, so a larger grit would cause more obvious striations. The light grit will even it out and not leave any scratches or bumps behind. Sanding should be done in moderation unless the ball is in bad condition.

If you want the ball to hook more, try using 1,000 to 2,000 grit Abralon pads. If you need even more hooking action because of oily lane conditions you can try a 500 grit Abralon pad. If your problem is too much hook, try a 4,000 grit pad.

Try to use more coarse grits like 400 to 1,500 grit to make your ball hook more. Using polish with grit will make it skid more and hook less.

Step 1: Start sanding the bowling ball with 220 grit sandpaper and sand ball for a specific amount of time. Turn ball 180 degrees and sand for same amount of time. Then turn ball back to pin up posistion and Repeat step one with 320 grit sandpaper.
