Ball hone puts a nice finish on the cylinders...if used properly...
I still use my 2 4 in spring hones...120 and 400 grit stones..
The spring hones give a true read on the cylinder walls...where as the ball hone scratches everything..
I get the crosshatch close with the 120 grit...and finish the crosshatch with the 400 grit..
This allows the rings to seat without roughing up the new rings...and also provides excellent oil control.

Looks like I missed the fireworks again.
There aren't too many hacks or parts changers that dare post in this forum.
Just who are you referring to ?

I built a 383 stroker motor for a street stip car final honing was done with 600 grit hone at machine shop. Honing I've seen here looks a little rough for new rings...

Sounds like you found a machine shop that knows their way around the inside of an engine.
I did not invent the 2 hone crosshatching method...it was taught to me by a master engine builder.
There is a lot of horsepower hiding inside an engine...reducing friction is a good place to start.
