Finally a pearl that reads the the mid lane!
As a speed dominant player, I've always had issues with pearl coverstocks going too far down the lane. With the Track Kinetic Amethyst, I have the perfect ball for when the fronts begin to burn up and I need to get left and around the pattern without worrying about the 2-10 combos that come with too much skid.

Its a Kinetic!!!!
Kinetic Amethyst - Various sport and house patterns
Positive Axis Point 4 3/8 right 1/2 up.
My ball driller and I laughed about the layout on this one. I wanted to try something different so we did 40x5x5 (pin about 2.5 almost 3 inches above the fingers) I like the motion I get from the Amethyst, I found this layout to be versatile for my style. I was able to play in or out on the lanes (minus the short pattern for sport I couldn't get the ball to stop which is understandable) On House I was able to start right and migrate left. The Amethyst didn't lose energy through the pins. The Amethyst got stronger and stronger after a few shots which is not wasn't a bad thing. I was impressed with that. On the medium and long sport patterns I was able to play straight as well as play in without losing energy through the pins. This is going to be a good ball for me, next is to play around with a few surface adjustments.

Track Kinetic Amethyst
This ball fits a need right away. I would compare it to my Verdict Pearl with a little more kick. The VP is pretty smooth off the spot for me while the Kinetic Amethyst saves a bit more energy and has a little stronger response through the pin deck. Will be a great league ball 2 or 3rd game and will come in handy once the shot burns up in tournament play. Great looking ball too.

A Cleaner Kinetic
The Track Kinetic Amethyst is the pearl version in the Kinetic series. It is most definitely the cleanest through the front part of the lane of the 3 balls in the series and is more controllable in the back end.
My ball was drilled with the pin about 3" from my PAP (4 ¾" over X 5/8" up), and there is 1 ½ oz. of side weight with no weight hole (which will be a legal drilling as of 8/1/18). Both the Kinetic Ruby and Emerald had a strong mid-lane move and generated a strong backend motion. The Amethyst appears to be much more controlled arc motion in the backend, storing a lot of energy to get through the pins. With this drilling, I believe the Amethyst will be an excellent league ball and will work well on medium length and lighter volume patterns or during lane transition. I wish I would have had this ball in time for USBC Nationals team pattern!
The Kinetic series has been wonderful for me, and the Amethyst definitely appears to be another winner for Track. For the upcoming league season and for those more challenging sport shots, the Kinetic Amethyst will not disappoint.

Can play different Angles
With the kinetic amethyst I was able to play multiple angles.
I was bowling on Stone Street was able to play up the boards and get a little bit right being left handed and it still have enough energy to go through the pins.
Pin is above rigner finger bout 1ich and kicked left bout 1/4 of inch. Cg is 1/2 above my center line and about 4inches from it.
Impress on how many different angles I could play with this ball.
To me it reads a little bit sooner than a kinetic Emerald and has the same hook if not just a bit more than a kinetic Ruby. this is actually probably the smoothest ball out of three.

Cleanest Kinetic Yet
This is the cleanest, and most angular in the Kinetic line. Great response to surface adjustments and it fits well within the Kinetic group. If you found the Ruby Kinetic a little too early, this ball will clear the fronts better and give you the recovery to move in with the transition.
