When we launched the SX1 and TX1 bowling balls, we equipped them both with our MOTIVator-X cover. It is a reactive urethane cover with a lower oil absorption rate. Our concept was that we could keep the oil on the surface of the ball long enough so the bowler could wipe off the oil before each shot. This would prevent oil saturation and, thereby, improve consistency and extend reactive life of the ball. Unfortunately, many bowlers are not toweling off the balls. The result is that the equipment gets covered with a film of oil and the backend recovery gets lost.
The solution is simple. Get our Power Gel Clean product and remove the oil and grime from the ball surface. (We believe this is the most effective ball cleaner on the market and several bowlers have told us the same thing). Then, get into the habit of toweling off the ball before each shot. This is a good idea with any ball to slow the rate of oil saturation.
