The new Precision core combined with a clean Prime Pearl coverstock is definitely an interesting combination. This new high performance ball definitely gives length through the pattern with a quite strong reaction at the end of the pattern.
For me, the Precision is a very situational bowling ball. I find myself using this ball when I need to stay closer to the headpin and when the backend reactions become very strong. While the cover of the Precision gives me good length through the pattern, the core seems to want to start-up soon. The reaction I get downlane is very fast but controllable. I like this ball a lot at centers with a lot of friction where a Black Paradox would be too strong.
I drilled the Precision with my benchmark drilling and will use it when the lanes break down and I have to start moving left. This ball gets down lane and it flips very nicely off the spot. This ball does not disappoint.
The Track Precision is a new high performance pearl, and it is an excellent ball for the upcoming fall season. It definitely rolls strong and continuous and does not overly store energy down lane.
My Precision is drilled with the pin below my middle finger and the CG is kicked ½” to the right of the pin. I typically find that strong pearl balls have a tendency to store a lot of energy through the front and mid lane, creating a skid/flip reaction. Sometimes and on some lane conditions, that is a good thing – but for me, particularly on THS, I find myself in wet/dry jail. However, the Precision is the right amount of clean and easy through the front of the lane – not too clean, not too early. Then, the mid-lane reaction sets the ball up for a strong, continuous move through the pins. I would not call the Precision a “smooth” ball in the backend, but would simply say that it makes a strong arcing motion and rolls strong.
I think the Track Precision is going to be “the ball” for league bowlers and is going to give you some excellent options on medium to long sport shots. I know it will be in my bag this fall.
