We are changing our grit rating system. The MOTIV® Factory Finish is now rated with a final Laser Scan (LS) Grit target. Some of our finishing processes end with Sanding (S) and some end with a Polish (P). Therefore, you will see either LSS or LSP after the grit rating.

I've added a Factory Finish Guide under the RESOURCES tab to show how to get your ball back to the factory finish!

If you would, could you please explain what is a "Laser Scan Grit target"? This is a new term & it may beneficial to better understand the coverstock finishes. I've already had a couple of inquiries from customers. Thanx !!

There is a surface scanner available that uses a laser to produce a rating for the peaks and valleys on your ball surface. One of my local shops here has it. It allows them to match "out of the box" surfaces much closer to actuality versus notation on the specs. I would guess they are trying to give that number up front.

JR is correct. This will allow us to be much more accurate in our description and it will allow the pro shops and customers to bring the ball finish back to out of the box with much more accuracy.

I'm confused a bit about the new finish guide. I need to resurface my Sigma Hybrid and it's listed as 3000 LSS... the same as the Sigma Tour. The old listing for the Sigma Tour was 2000 Wet Sand and the Hybrid was listed as 1000 Wet Sand. Why are they now the same finish?

I'm glad I kept my original boxes to see what the finishes were. (or go to bowlingballvault.com)

Or everyone can just resurface their equipment to match the conditions they see. OOB isn't the end all.

I would be tempted to release every ball the same surface and let the customer decide what works best for them. Unfortunately, too many people are married to OOB because they don't understand the hows and whys of surface adjustments. Learn about surface adjustments and use the OOB as a starting point. After that, it doesn't really matter.

I change surfaces all the time, hardly ever using the OOB for more than a series or 2. But I have the luxury of a spinner at home. A lot of people don't have that.
