A couple days ago my ST had an unfortunate accident during my league, 4 balls got caught up in the ball return and my ST got the worst of it. When it finally came back it looked like the surface of the moon, scrapes, scratches, deep smudges and a few gouges. Some were more than superficial and you can feel how deep they are with your fingernail. What do you think the bowling alley's responsibility is and how much can the ST be resurfaced(stock removal)without damaging it more (hasn't been resurfaced prior to this).

its tough to say without actually seeing it, you can only sand a bowling ball so much...but it sounds like its worth a shot seeing you really have nothing to lose at this point. I would think the bowling center would replace it but some just don't do it.

If the damage is extensive and in the track unfortunately ball may be not be the same... Agree with Jason on whether or not alley will replace, everywhere is different.

A team mate of mine had this exact same issue last season, they sanded it a ton. It was sanded so much that the interchangeable thumb insert was higher than the ball surface and had to be cut down. We did the best we could to measure the circumference of the ball to be sure it was still legal. The ball did not react the same. Fortunately, it worked better for him after the sanding, but there is no way that ball is truly round. I would ask for a replacement or credit towards a new ball, but that can be tricky also as "we are not responsible for damaged or stolen goods"
