Track is bringing back the Triton Elite with a new solid coverstock and a modified version of the original Core 2 to offer the same consistant motion the original Triton Elite was known for. This updated bowling ball takes the QR-7 Solid coverstock and wraps it around the MC2 (Modified Core 2) to offer major continuous hook on medium lane conditions. Track took the same core used in this ball 20 years ago and modified it to rase the RG and lower the diff slightly to match the old reaction on todays lane conditions.
I drilled my pin down layout on this ball which generally works very well when my angles stay square to the lane. As predicted this ball has been lights out when I use it on fresh. On shots where I miss target to the right it has a strong enough cover/core to recover and at the least stay out of trouble and due to the layout, it doesn't jump through the nose on errant shots to the left.
In summary, this is a very controllable benchmark ball.

Likes: Drilled this ball mainly because I loved the original 20 years ago. I laid this ball out to be the next ball up when my Hammer Web started to struggle and move to soon. This ball is the perfect ball for that scenario. Didn't even have to move or change lines. It also is just a pinch stronger then my Black Widow Pink in that it rolls a tad sooner and is smoother with direction changes downlane. It really rolls good, it is a must have in your bag and makes a great 1,2 punch with either of the balls i have mentioned here.

The Track Triton Elite is the definition of a benchmark bowling ball that was an excellent ball 20 years ago, and now with a couple of minor modifications to meet today's lane conditions the ball is just as great today! With a slightly higher RG and lower Diff with the symmetrical core the ball is clean through the fronts and strong and angular at the breakpoint. What makes this ball special is how consistent this ball rolls and the diversity of drill patterns that you can use and this ball will perform accordingly. Don't miss out one this one!
Track has outdone themselves again. The Triton Elite is so much more than a "benchmark" ball. It hooks a lot more than I expected and is one of the first balls out of my bag on the fresh. It hooks fairly early for me, yet is still smooth and controllable. It allows me to play multiple angles and still stores up energy to plow through the pins. You don't be disappointed with the Triton Elite!
I really like the arc this ball produces. For me the shape is similar to the Hammer Web Tour only much bigger. Lane coverage is similar to my Track Tactix but for me it goes through the pins stronger, less deflection. I also see it saving me a bit on our local wet dry condition. It tends to be smoother off the dry, so I might leave or trip a 4 pin instead of having to look at a split. It also has enough umph to kick out the 7 if I tug it in the oil. This one will be in play for quite a while.
Wow... This ball is crazy! Didn't realize how much this ball actually hooks.. super strong.. First game out of box was a 297. This ball still really got through the fronts sop clean and had incredible backend and absolutely hits like a truck. This ball really drives through the pocket. I will have to order another triton very soon.
Track Has Definitely Brought Back An Old Favorite From 20 Years Ago..Was Able To Throw The Original Back In The Day And Im Glad Track Brought This One Back..With The New MC2 Symmetrical Core And QR-7 Solid Cover Stock Helps Makes This Ball More Versatile Then The Original..Allows You To Move Left And Swing The Ball On Medium Volume Oil Patterns Or Bring Out During Transition Really Gets Down Lane And Drives Through The Pins For Mid Level Ball..An Old School Favorite With A Few Added Features To Make This Ball A Bench Mark Ball..If Your Bowling On A Medium Or Lower Volume House Pattern Definitely Worth Taking Out Of The Bag And Play Straighter Angles To The Pocket! But Have Bowled Tournaments Where Later In The Block Where Its Starting To Hook In Mid Lane Definitely Will Get Through That Mid Lane Smooth And Still Drive Through The Pins!

This ball is the perfect benchmark ball in your bag. Very controllable on the lanes and continuous through the pins no matter where you are playing. It will fit perfectly right in the middle of your lineup!
Triton Elite - Various sport and house patterns
Positive Axis Point 4 3/8 right 1/2 up.
Smooth and continuous is what I like the most about the Triton Elite, I was a little skeptical looking at the box surface thinking it would be to early for my area. I was wrong, game 2 I pulled the Triton Elite out the bag played through 20 at the arrows letting it float right no farther then 8 down lane. I was impressed to see the ball recover without being violent, then go through the pins I was happy to see such a smooth reaction from a ball that looked to be strong. The other key to the Triton Elite is the versatility I used it at box, added a little more surface and slight polish. The difference in the ball roll is noticeable however, the motion stayed true for me. I went pin down between my bridge CG is swung out just a little. If you want a ball that is easy to read and isn't to sharp off the friction the Triton Elite is a bowling ball to consider.
Is the core on a 13 pound same as 14?10/6/2019 - By Pat
The 14-16lb balls have the same weight block that is listed ( MC2 Technology ) but the weight block changes on the 13lb and 12lbs. They have to change the weight block due to the overall weight dropping.10/8/2019 - By Bowling.Com Staff
