Ball review

With the introduction of the new Alias, Track have allowed bowlers to throw a high-end ball with both an asymmetrical and a symmetrical layout, not only that but due to the core being the same in all weights and the lower top weights, a balance hole is rarely required.

I selected an asymmetrical Layout, with pin below the middle finger and no weight hole.
A very strong addition to the already great Track lineup. The alias is around 8-10 boards stronger than my Paradox Black and reacts very well to surface and hand changes.

My recommendation – a terrific piece of equipment suited to many different styles and conditions.

Ball review

I choose to drill my Alias assymetrical as I wanted it to have some more kick when it sees the friction. It is a little smoother and earliere than Mako, so I would use this on a medium lenght pattern from fresh. As it allows me to control front to back the way like.

Ball review

This is a ball I use on medium and heavy oil patterns especially on fresh oil. With this aggressive ball, with much backend motion, I can create a bigger angle to the pocket, which I like.

Ball review

Track have done something different with this core they have put in this ball.
You can drill it so it has a high asymmetric core or you can drill it so its symmetric.
I drilled my ball in between so its a medium strong int. diff.
Its a nice strong predictable dull ball with a nice strong read in oil and still got enough energy to have a little pop on the backend.
It reacted well to hand changes and surface changes

Ball review

The new Alias features some very unique new designs from Track. The core is the same in all weights, the top weights are lower and you can make it symmetrical!
I chose a strong asymmetrical layout for my first Alias and it is good. Lots of midlane and quite a bit of backend. It is a little longer than Paradox Black, but covers probably 5 more boards on the backend. Alias will do very well when I need a stronger ball that I can play the middle part of the lane with.

Track Hx-05

RG: 2.49

Ball review:

The replacement for the 500-series doesn’t disappoint. With the proven Kinetic-core the Hx-05 clears the front well, reads the midlane and has a nice and smooth backend. The entire motion reminds me a lot of great symmetrical balls, which is always very usable.

The Hx-05 is a little earlier and smoother than the 400a, but hooks about the same amount. I think this will be very good both out of the box and with some surface. With some surface I think it will do well on the fresh on most medium patterns and out of the box it will be very good on drier patterns or after a few games on medium patterns.

Track Mx-10

Speed: 17 mph
Revrate: 340 RPM
RG: 2.50

Ball review:

The new Mx-10 uses the core of the 910a. This gives it a strong backend motion and the cover gets it through the front easily. Compared to the 910a I think the Mx-10 will be a good step down ball. When 910a hooks a little too much you should be able to go to the Mx-10 and get a few more feet of length without drastically changing the shape you are looking for.

Compared to the Hx-05 the Mx-10 hooks 5-7 boards more and most of that is in the backend.

Ball review:

I think this is a great ball. It goes long and then flips sideways. The reaction reminds me of the 715A which also went far and then hooked a lot. So if you like a ball that is long and hooks a lot in the backend, the Mx-10 is for you. I used mine mostly here in Denmark as it works amazingly on house patterns from the start.

Track Lx-16

Ball review:

The Lx-16 is the first ball in Tracks new high performance line with a new core and cover. And this ball is good!

The Lx-16 reads the midlane very well, but has a strong and very continous backend. This makes it usable for many different lines and oil patterns and I have been able to get it back from angles that most high performance balls won’t get back from.

The strong, continous motion gives me the option of going up the back off the ball and not have it roll out, but also get around it and have it hook the entire lane.

The overall hook is about the same as 912T.

Ball review:

Lx-16 surprised me a lot. I havn’t seen it was as strong as and stable as it really is. It reminds me a lot about the 714C and 811C/T, 2 balls I have been very happy for. I can use it on almost all the WTBA Profiles.
