The Track Tempo Pearl mid performance bowling ball is ideal when the lanes start to break down. The Track Tempo core paired with the DR-5 Pearl coverstock allows this ball to ease through the heads and mid-lane on medium to dry oil conditions.
As a high rev player, I tend to like bowling balls that are in the medium pearl symmetric range. Add the lower differential to the Tempo and its the perfect ball for me later in blocks or after the lanes transition. This ball allows me to play closer to the friction and keep my angles closed for optimal carry. If I were to compare it to something in the Brunswick family it would be the Hero and the Allure. All 3 balls allow me to keep my angles square to the pocket, but the Tempo gives me about a foot more length and more pop on the backend
The Track Tempo is the latest mid-range pearl ball and I am very pleased with its versatility and ability to control the backend, but still go through the pins with force.
My Tempo is drilled 80x3.75x30 so it is laid out with a little flip, but not maxxed. I think the first inclination is to compare this to the Track Heat from several years back. The Tempo is earlier to respond to friction for sure in comparison, but still stores the energy you'd expect from the Heat. I can see this both provide control to the higher rev bowler as well as some strength and motion for the up-the-board league bowler as well.
I will be using my Tempo for both straight and angular play, both in league and sport shots. I recommend this to be something you must-have in your arsenal for a variety of low-medium oil needs.

Here is my take on the Track Tempo. The Track Tempo features a high RG/lower diff. symmetrical core with a DR-5 emerald pearl Cover.
My "vitals" are a 405 rev rate with a PAP of 5 9/16 over and 1/8 up. I drilled 2 Tempos- one with 70x5x20 (pin up) and 60x5 1/2x65 (pin down). I have thrown the ball at box surface (1000 Siaair compound) and at worn 1000 Abralon. I have tried the ball on both burned and fresh THS.
As a bowler with lower ball speed with a fairly high rev rate, I sometimes have trouble with lower volume patterns in the 20-22 ml range. Thus, I drilled the Tempo to give me options in such an environment with the high RG core. The Tempo performed as expected. On fresh THS, with the normal puddle in the middle, at box surface, I did find the Tempo to squirt a little. I then went over the ball with a worn 1000 pad in order to knock the shine off and that absolutely did the trick. That would also confirm that the ball, at box surface, will work great on lower volume patterns. Thus, on lighter volume fresh, the Tempo will do very well. On broken down, short sport, the Tempo should also perform well and with its high RG/lower diff core and make a nice combination with the Radical Bonus. Generally, the Tempo should work well with bowlers with lower ball speeds and/or rev dominant bowlers. Plus, with its emerald pearl cover, the Tempo has great shelf appeal.

Track's first two bowling balls at the new plant were both big solids (Proof & Latitude, love them both) so it was nice that their third ball is a low-ish differential core, 0.038 and pearl cover stock. That gives us Track fans a ball to drop down to when the transition is taking hold. Some houses have the "straighter is greater" carry to them and that will fit there too. I drilled mine to have a smooth motion. It does exactly what I was looking for. Very clean through the heads and mid-lane and a smooth rounded shape down lane. I have seen several video's & talked to a few people that had this ball drilled to do the skid flip shape as well with good success. It seems to be pretty versatile. Work with our Pro Shop and I'm sure they can help to get you the shape you're looking for. Love the color too. Money Green.$$
This ball vs radicals squatch Pearl? How much differents8/30/2020 - By Nick
The Radical Squatch has a stronger weight block to make that ball more suited for medium to heavy oil while the Track Tempo is more suited for medium to lighter oil. They have similar length because they both have pearl coverstocks with a polished finish but because the Squatch weight block is stronger it would need more oil.8/31/2020 - By Bowling.Com Staff
