You need this in your bag!
Great looks and lots of backend. if you liked any shuttle core ball then you will want this in your bag. Easy to clear heads. Lots of backend movement. Hits hard and carries well

Shuttle Core is back in action!
I love the reaction on the ball. May have to hit the coverstock with a 4000 grit to give me a slight different look. Love the shelf appeal and always love the Shuttle core.

I drilled the Kinetic similar to my Tundra I didn't really know what I was to expect I heard and seen great things but for me I was not sure. First time trying it in league I didn't like the shape it was hooking and little early moved left then it didn't hook enough. I tried it one night in practice lanes were like a game two league not to bad as far as being drier. It was a different ball I was able to roll it right and it would set up and roll back nicely really keeping the pins low not destroying the rack but sweeping everything off the deck. I got one in and it finished pretty strong as well as through some pins around I figured ok I need to roll this more. Ever since then the Kinetic has been the first ball out the bag for league, I recently put 1000 on it and in one bowling center I couldn't keep it right of the head pin that let me know the kinetic also has some strength to it, so I possibly will try it on a heavier oil pattern at about 500 grit just to see how it works. I took it to another bowling center with that same 1000 surface on it and it was the ball from the entire night and in my area it is really hard to use one ball all night unless scoring that night is not a high priority. I think I moved maybe four boards left throughout the night I was able to miss right like really bad and the Kinetic recovered I would leave a ten pin here or there but I will take that when it is rolled that bad. The shots that were good off the hand that mixture of colors sliding down the lane and watching the friction help the ball change direction and roll into the pocket the pins never stood a chance. I have watched several different bowlers roll with it and shoot 800 I know it has to do with the lanes and the person and everything else that is involved however when your able to use a ball for a three game set or more and it is st

Track Kinetic Emerald!
This is the best bang for your buck when it comes to asymmetric and over all hook potential. This ball is one of the most hard hitting balls I've ever thrown. When this ball hits the pins it grabs everyones attention. The Track Kinetic glides thru the front end and responds very well down lane. It gives you a sharper entry angle to the pocket with control. Due to the modified Kinetic asymmetric core. As the Track Mako starts to eat up the oil. The Track Kinetic takes over and delivers a great 1-2 punch and devour your competion. Both the Mako and Kinetic will perform well together on your typical house shot and also the Open Championships.

Lots of backend and punch!
The Track Kinetic Emerald has a TON of backend motion! The polished hybrid coverstock combined with the modified Kinetic core creates a powerful ball reaction that will be hard to beat at the mid-performance level.
My Kinetic Emerald has one of my favorite layouts - the pin is about 1" below my ring finger with the CG kicked right and a fairly big weight hole. On a THS with friction, this layout/coverstock combination permits me to play closer to the friction/track and stores a tremendous amount of energy to go through the pins with a big punch. I plan on drilling a 2nd one with a neutral pin-up layout that will permit to play a big hook in transition. Even with this very pin-down layout, this ball has great continuation while crossing several more boards than my other balls with the same layout.
Either with or without the OOB polish, the Kinetic Emerald is going to become a tremendous bench mark ball and greatly utilized on medium length patterns and/or in transition with the right layout.

Drilled the Emerald with my benchmark drilling and will use when the lanes break down and I have to start moving left. This is a real nice compliment to my Mako as the lanes break down. I am becoming a big fan of the Kinetic core.
