The Track Precision Solid is a whole lotta ball!!! Mine is drilled with the pin down below the bridge, the CG is kicked about 1” right of the pin, and the MB is about 1” right and below the thumb. My expectation was that it would roll similar to the original Precision but be a bit earlier on the front part of the lane. What I got was something unexpected, but very good.
For me, the typical non-polished HP Track ball is just simply very strong on all parts of the lane. It gets through oil like a champ, reacts very strong in the mid-lane, and has a strong arcing motion that is continuous through the pins. I also find that the Precision pearl rolls the same way. However, the Precision Solid gives me a back-end motion that is much closer to the Columbia Savage or Hammer Rip’d Solid – it flips VERY strong! I tried it a couple times on my typical league shot, and it was simply too much ball for my tweener ball speed and rev rate. However, when I bowled a tournament with it on a fresh but low-scoring 42’ Mark Roth pattern, the stronger backend motion was able to get me entry angle that none of my other balls were able to accomplish that day.
For me, this is a “sport shot only” ball, which is just fine by me, because I have enough MP and UMP balls for that condition. I could see it working on THS for bowlers with low rev rates who need the ball to give them more power, and for high rev/high ball speed players who can control the reaction. But, for higher volume and longer sport patterns, this will definitely be one of the first balls out of my bag.
