    I am strictly talking EM games here, I am sure it varies game to game and player to player but I have heard so many different answers that I would enjoy hearing what other Pinsiders actually do. I was told, since I only own 2 wedgeheads that get played nearly all morning long, and then again all evening long, every day, that I should replace my balls about once a month or so (I have a 5 year old and he beats on them, but also I usually host parties for my friends and family). This seems like a good plan for me. But I would love to hear what you other folks actually do.

    They are super cheap, so frequency will not offend me, I just want whats best for my pins. I love these babies.

    Has anyone every tried taking a SOS scrubby sponge and cleaning one? Do you ever lube them?
    Is it different for EM's vs moderns?
