My Code Black ball, seemed to be rolling out and hooking too soon, The surface had been roughed up, so I had it polished to about a 1000 grit, but still not were I needed it to be.
I then used Automotive "clay" to polished up a little more, then soaked it in hot water with "Dawn dish soap" and it worked great.
Just thought I pass it along.

Is the "clay" stuff rubbing compound? I have used that in the past but haven't lately...

I may have to give Clay a try. I read that there are different grades of clay rated from fine, medium, and heavy. W9JAB what did you use and what was the process? Use a spinner or hand?
