REVITALIZING A USED PRO-ACTIVE BALL




Q. I have a Brunswick Pro Zone ball that I bought used, from my pro shop dealer. I needed a ball that would hook in oil. This pro-active ball did the trick for a while, but lately has quit hooking. I have read in magazines that pro-active balls wear out sooner than other balls. Should I just buy a new ball and stop trying to save this one?

A. It is true that pro-active balls require more up keep than reactive balls but you should be able to save this ball. First, I would suggest putting it in the dishwasher with detergent. Run it through a couple of cycles to get some of the oil out. Then take it to the pro shop, and have them polish it to remove any loose particles. Have them use a brown scotch brite pad on it as well, to remove some of the cover stock from between the particles and help to restore the gripping power.
