Resuface bowling ball?

In today's game, coverstock maintenance is a Top Priority! The bowling ball track becomes worn with many scratches, which will cause ball to have an inconsistent roll. That bowling ball will lose the reaction and energy on impact to the pins. If you see your bowling ball is not giving you the reaction you used to get, it is time to resurface
The choice of grit you use depends on what surface friction you have or want on the surface of your ball. If you have dull surfaced ball and are bowling on oily lane conditions, the oil will start to saturate the surface pores on the ball and begin to glaze. The ball will start to appear shiny. A light sand will take off the surface oil glazed on the ball.
Or sand if you want to change the surface of the ball to suit the lane condition. The rougher grits are for oily conditions, such as 500 or 800 grit. The 1000 or 2000 grit is for medium oil conditions. The 4000 grid sanding pad will give ball a sheen to the surface of the ball without using polish. What grit you should use depends on the type of release you have and the lane conditions. Experimenting with different surfaces is the best way to understand what works for you. 
Polishing is done to reduce the friction on the surface of a ball. There are many types of polishes available on the market. From polishes that clean off grime and belt marks, to polishes that are available in different grit levels for medium oil condition to dry conditions. Every manufacture has there own formulas. They are all good. Experimenting is needed to find the right types of polishes that work the best for you. 
You should polish your polished bowling balls after using it for many games. You will wear off the polish, as you will see the track area becoming dull. You need to polish your ball if it starts to roll up early on the lane and you lose the ball reaction at the back end. Or, in other words, if the ball does not skid down the lane as far as you need and the ball’s hook at the back end is not as aggressive as you need. Having the ball skid through the front part of the lane will saves energy for the ball reaction to hook more at the back end.
