The Track Strata Solid Reactive, high-performance bowling ball introduces a new core with the strongest Track coverstock to date. The Strata core wrapped with the QR-11 Solid coverstock generates the perfect combination of a strong mid-lane reaction along with a continuous backend on heavy oil conditions.
Traction, ideal for heavier oil, the colors!
Heavier oil, longer sport/tournament patterns

Speed: 17.9RPM: 480PAP: 5 7/8 RT x 2 1/4 DNNo-thumb, one league per week, tournaments when I can. Tremendous slouch.Mid lane traction, strong backend on heavier volume patterns.The Strata is Track’s first top-end release of 2020. The Proof performed like the highest priced balls but was sold at a great value. The designers had the challenging task of exceeding the Proof’s performance with this release, and we’re all very excited with the results. The Strata provides the ideal blend of strong mid lane with continuous backend. To get the desired performance, the Track design team started with the new Strata asymmetric core, and the strongest Q.R. cover to date, QR-11 Solid. The addition of DynamiCore for extra hitting power and Durability Optimization Technology (DOT) for worry free drilling with your favorite layout, are always added benefits to help us get higher scores.The Strata has an out of box surface of 500/1000 and paired up with the core/cover combination, as well as my layout of 45x4.5x45, gives me the exact ball reaction Track Bowling has intended on heavier volume patterns and longer patterns that I may encounter when I’m competing in tournaments. It’s a little too much ball for my league that I roll in, even on those nights when the lanes seem to be more slick and a ball with traction is needed, but when I add a little bit of polish I’m able to get the ball to read the mid and back a little later and that makes the Strata a viable option for league.I have to admit, with it’s Grey/Sky/Black colors, the Strata has one of the best color schemes that I’ve seen in a long time and is one of the best looking balls I’ve ever seen. Looks amazing as the colors blend while it’s going down the lane and even when it’s stationary on the ball rack.Premium traction with enough energy left to make a strong move in the backend makes the Track Strata an easy choice for the heaviest of oil patterns.Be well, rip racks ...and shred pins.
The Strata is a great heavy oil ball, even with the skid flip type layout on the ball. This ball has a lot of surface so I did a layout to preserve the energy for down lane and let the cover do most of the work. This ball flat out hooks and if you are looking for a ball to get through the heavy oil and maintain that hitting power, this one is for you.
The Track Strata is a very strong rolling ball! For a ball that comes 500/1000 grit right out of the box, and the strongest coverstock that Track has ever produced, that should come as no surprise. However, there are some surprises.Mine was drilled 45x4x25. The surprise was how clean the ball rolled through the heads, even out of box. Where the teeth of this ball seem to come out is the mid-lane. The mid-lane move is quite strong, and gives you a lot of angle to and through the pins. The Strata has been in my league ball since I got it, and for a strong HP solid, that says a lot to me.The Strata wound up being way more versatile than I expected, and recommend this ball not only for sport, but for house shots as well - just make sure there is A LOT of oil to play!Dave HanTrack Regional StaffVise Regional Staff
Track Srata Tracks first ball with dot technology This ball it a good one when there's some oil on the lanes it will not quit on you as you can keep moving in with this one Track strata has great continuous movement off the end of the pattern and thru the pins
The Track Strata is a great ball for heavy, long or fresh oil situations. It has a solid cover QR11, and the new Strata core which is asymmetric. It reads the mid lane very well and for me has a big smooth shape with good continuation through the pins. I would say it is a little less with my feet and a little smoother than the Hammer Redemption Solid but is a good 3-4 stringer than the Track Proof. It's a good looking ball that will get an instant place in my tournament arsenal.
High volume, when lanes are cliffed
The Strata is a good symmetrical solid. It reads the midlanes well to give a smoother reaction.

If you are looking for a ball for heavy or longer oil, the Track Strata will be your ball. drilled my Strata the same layout as the original Paradox and the Strata is easily 5 boards stronger. Once the Strata started hooking too early and got lazy down lane, I switched to the Paradox and started striking again.The Strata will be the first ball out of my bag when bowling on longer or heavier oil patterns.
