Track has created the Legion line of bowling balls to empower its legion of bowlers. This ball features the LT-2 core which has a medium RG to produce strong revs for the length of the lane. This core helps conserve the ball's energy for the breakpoint which gives it a powerful entry angle to the pocket. The Legion Solid is covered with the proven MR-6 Solid coverstock which offers a strong mid-lane roll with fierce move at the breakpoint when used on medium to heavy oil conditions.
The Track Legion Solid is an amazing combination of smooth and strength. Taking the Tour SIC coverstock and combining it with the asymmetrical core of the original Legion, for me it is a lethal combination.
I drilled my 1st one with the pin up above the bridge, the CG kicked right about 2" and the mass bias is in the thumb hole. The out of box coverstock is at 2000 grit – but it is a very clean finish. I found that with this drilling, the ball gets through the front part of the lane very clean – even on a short pattern – and reads the end of the pattern very well. At the pins, the entry angle is not too angular and packs a heavy rolling wallop.
My other Legion Solid has a 2" pin placed below the bridge and the mass bias is kicked right. This layout made the reaction much stronger and gave me a fantastic look on longer and higher volume.
Mitch Beasley says to think of this ball like a "Baby Paradox" – a ball that you can switch to when the Paradox is too much ball and you need something to start your transition play. I would tend to agree. For me, this is going to be my benchmark ball and I would recommend it highly!

WOW!!! This is one of the best bowling balls that I've ever owned. In my opinion, this is the best ball in the Track line up right now. The Legion Hybrid was very similar to my 811A/SE. The Legion Solid is the 811A/SE, except better. I used this ball on every condition from short patterns to long, high volume patterns. The Legion Solid was my "go-to" ball the entire collegiate season. I used this ball as a benchmark ball and always the first out of my bag to give me a read of the lanes when the pattern was not given. The Legion Solid takes surface adjustments better than any other ball I've owned. After throwing this in college, most of my team purchased this ball. The Legion Hybrid was underrated but this Solid is definitely a must have ball for everyone. I'm purchasing a second one today!

I drilled this one to be the first ball out of the bag on fresh conditions. I really like the motion I am seeing as the ball gets thru the heads very nicely and makes a strong turn at the breakpoint, however, I am not having much luck with carry. It almost seems to be hitting to hard. I will be making a surface change to see if I can improve my carry.
The Legion Solid is a must have in my bag. On fresh it allows me to play straighter through the front part of the lanes with a smooth continuous motion on the back end. Another thing that makes this ball wonderful is if I don't use it on fresh I can guarantee that I use it as a transition piece. This ball is extremely responsive as you move left and it keeps its smooth continuous motion on the back end allowing for a very predictable piece.
