Track continues the success of the Heat bowling ball line with the Track Heat Lava. This ball creates easy length through the front of the lane and then generates more motion from the midlane on. This ball takes the QR-7 Pearl coverstock with a polished finish and wraps it around the Modified Tri-Core to offer more versatility allowing it to pair well with medium as well as lighter oiled lanes. The medium RG and low differential found on this ball allow it to store enough energy for the backend and keep its reaction consistent and predictable roll after roll.
This ball surprised me! I knew I'd see some great down lane reaction, but I didn't expect to see so much! This is a STRONG ball for the price point, and provides a great amount of length and backend. It will get you through transition games with ease!
For the Track techy's out there, I drilled this ball 55 x 5 x 40, which puts it pin up and above the bridge based on my positive axis point (PAP).
The Heat Is Definitely On..Loved The Original Heat This Ball Adds To It.. Definitely Can Open My Angles More And It Really Drives Through The Pins..No Need For Surface Adjustments..When Lanes Are Fried Definitely Can Migrate Left And Play Tighter Angles Or Swing The Ball Very Versatile..Go Buy One Great Tournament Ball To Have In Your Bag

Positive Axis Point 4 3/8 right 1/2 up.
Finish through the pins is amazing for me, maybe it's the layout or maybe it's the lane surface(s). I have bowled at four different bowling centers and the drive through the pins when using the Heat Lava is amazing. I tried to box surface on a fresh house pattern, the ball roll seemed normal (normal pearl reaction for me length (skid), sharp or arcing of the friction). The finish through the pins for me was different then any Heat I have used prior to this one. I had to put a little surface on the cover to see if the finish would change. 2000 pad roll was a little earlier but not drastically early. The finish through the pins was amazing (need I say it again). The Heat Lava is a bowling ball I will go to when I cannot get that drive I want through the pins on conducive lane patterns. The surface I have played with so far are 500/3000, 1000/4000, 3000/500/1000, and finally 4000. The Heat Lava has taken the surface adjustments well, having the lower grit surface on the Heat Lava made it respond earlier but, it didn't lose its drive through the pins. The Heat Lava is a great rolling pearl piece, for finish through the pins for me has me sold!!! I went pin down between my bridge CG is swung out just a little.
