I used my standard layout of 60x5.5x35 on my Attack. I originally threw it at the summer trade show and was very impressed. After throwing it in league, I'm even more impressed. It has similar motion of the Mako, but a bit longer in the midlane and much more backend motion. If I missed right it still had enough energy to get back to the pocket and go through the pins correctly. You definitely won't be disappointed with the Mako Attack.

The Mako Attack definitely gave me some length down the lane in comparison to my original Mako. It gave me a nice angular, continuous motion that didn't over react when entering the pins. It was slightly oil sensitive for me which tells me it's probably not a ball That I would use early on the fresh. This one will be a "ball down" choice when the lanes start to break down. I'm very happy with my Track Mako Attack! :)

This ball reacts harder in the backend that the original Mako. It's hits well and has excellent recovery. I'll say that it works best when there is some friction. As usual, when there is more volume or tighter backs, polished equipment tends to be touchy. This ball has strong strike power as I've seen many off hits carry. The original Mako and the Attack make a good high end combo to have in your bag. If you want to limit the backend reaction, drill one pin down and tighten up the angle. I'm enjoying throwing this line.

I punched mine with a 55x4.5x50 layout. The Mako Attack offers slightly more length than its solid predecessor, but still rolls relatively early for a hybrid. On a fresh THS, it rolls nicely offering enough mid-lane reaction to still hit the pocket on inside misses. I found this ball performs extremely well once the fresh tournament or THS pattern begins to breakdown. When competing on the broken down USBC White pattern, this ball was superb offering enough length to get through drier heads without having to significantly increase ball speed.

Summary – This ball offers more length and a more angular reaction than the original Mako. While usable on a fresh THS pattern I found this ball really shines as the second ball out of my bag when my upper performance solid begins to burn up. Players with a lot of tilt will love this ball when fresh conditions begin to dry out. Players with slower ball speeds or less tilt should find this ball to be a great option right out of the gate on slightly drier THS patterns.

I drilled two of these. My PAP is 3 15/16 and 13/16 right. I'm not sure of the exact angles, but it's pin under the middle, with a hole on my val. It's pretty good, very tame, controllable. The pin up one is really good. I preferred my Mako with polish, which gave me a decent reaction, but this is what I was looking for.

I missed out on the original mako but from watching people throw this at the demos and loving it I figured it would be another great ball. I'm really glad I got this in my bad. I used it at a center I normally struggle carrying at and I was able to let it out and have it recover and still take out the corner pins. Even when I got fast and pushed it through the oil it still hit great. Another gem from the mako line can't wait to see what comes next.

Mako Attack (Box Surface and 500/3000 and 2000/3000)

Modified “Rico Layout” Pin in the palm x hole about 6 inches from the pin near the MB.

House Shot Patterns Fresh and Broken Down

The Mako Attack is a really good compliment to the Mako I don’t see a huge difference between the two of them but they are different as far as shape. Reading the lane I have the Mako being a little earlier but both are still smooth and continuous on the backend with tremendous finish through the pins. I tried the Mako Attack out of box and I couldn’t believe the amount of angles I could play with it I was getting a really good feel for the reaction and the finish through the pins. I rolled with it at another bowling center and it was not getting around the corner like I wanted it to. Prior to the next week I put the 500/3000 surface on it which made the Mako Attack earlier then I wanted it to be. That gave me a different reaction that I might use later on down the line but not for that house pattern. I then put 2000/3000 on it and now I am able to see a consistent reaction on various house patterns. That tells me a few things versatile cover as far as surface adjustment and Modified “Rico Layout” in this type of ball is not bad for me. I still have to try it in a symmetrical bowling ball. I have seen various styles use the Mako Attack if you’re looking for something to compliment the Mako or if you never had the Mako the Mako Attack is a great option, the reaction and finish are true to its name.

If you want a strong ball thats clears, look no further. I still had to knock down the surface to get some roll. Really strong through the pins as you would expect with the Mako core. This ball is a great compliment to the Mako.

Mako Attack I found this ball to have a very defined motion off the spot. Great length with some serious backends!

Drilled the Mako Attack to fill a spot in the arsenal but it turned into a front liner. This ball cleared the heads fine but hit much harder than I expected. It goes through the pins the right way. I have 6 games on it and have yet to shoot a 10 pin. Looking forward to seeing it on some of the harder patterns.

I originally used both the Mako Attack and the Logix at the Classic Products trade show. I felt like the Logix was cleaner and had more pop down lane and that the Attack had more recovery on errant shots. After drilling one of my own, I have my general longer pin layout of Pin above the middle finger, CG in the palm. MB to right of thumb. This ball seems to make a great turn at the end of the pattern, but needs more oil up front to really be effective. As I don't see that very often, It's not normally the first out of my bag. This ball will be good for lower speed, rev-challenged players.

Hello all you Track Fans. Today we will talk about the Mako Attack. The Mako Attack is more length than the original Mako, but it has a stronger backend, but still pick up in the midlane to get you great ball reaction. If you have not picked your Mako Attack up yet, run to your local pro shop and get yours today.....

Drilled this ball with one of my standard testing layouts 65 x 4.5" x 70.

If you like the look of the Mako Solid but want a ball to get a touch further down the lane without overreacting on the backend this is the ball for you. I found this ball to be very "rolly" off the spot. This would definitely be the choice If I need to blend a pattern on the fresh or a shorter pattern where I want to control the change of direction.

The new Mako Attack is a great compliment to the Mako. I was surprised with how strong this ball was. I was not expecting it to be as strong as it is. As far as hook potential goes, it is very close to the Mako. However, it is a lot cleaner and a lot more angle down lane. This ball can really open up the lane for you. I have had issues with Assym pearls in the past with getting them to see the lane properly and go thru the pins properly. This one so far I have not had that issue yet. I have mine drilled 45x4.25x45 with no hole. The colors look great on the ball as well.
On flatter sport patterns, I am not sure this will be your first option, its not for me, but as the lanes open up this is when this ball will shine. On your typical house patterns, don't be afraid to stand left and throw it right. The ball will get back. I haven't seen this ball just flat out skid too far yet. Seems to really create the correct angle to carry pretty well for me.

I have mine laid out at 55x4 ¾ x45. It definitely has more length and is much more angular with a very strong continuous backend than the original Mako. When the lanes begin to break down I am able to move inside with this ball and still get it back to the pocket with no problem. Definitely a good ball down choice as the lanes begins to break down.

The Mako attack has been the most anticipated balls for me. I absolutely love the Mako and the Mako Attack didn't disappoint. Real clean through the front and aggressive motion down lane. A great compliment to the very smooth motion of the Mako.

Layout is 40x4.5x45 w/ hole on VAL 2" below PAP.

The Mako Attack offers more length and a more angular reaction.
With the coverstock and core combo, its allows different angles to do played.

This ball to me reads a little longer the the Mako. With the pearl cover it should.

I drilled the Mako Attack 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 is a great compliment to the Mako when the lanes dry up. If you liked the Mako this is a must for your bag.

Watched numerous people throwing the Mako Attack at a recent demo and it was by far the most popular ball there. Finally got to throw it myself in league last night and this will easily be my new go-to ball. Drilled the exact same layout as my original Mako, the Attack definitely goes longer with more backend reaction. And his ball gave me so much miss room. If I tugged it into the oil it still had plenty of hook to recover and if I leaked it out it was still strong enough to get back to the pocket.

if you liked the original mako you will definitely love this ball. Being a hybrid it gives you a couple options. you can either move 3 or 4 boards right of where you were with the mako or you can ball down to this when your mako gets to be to much ball. Honestly this ball surprised me with how well it reads the lane and how continuous it is.

I have been really looking forward to this ball love my Trilogy and this is like its big brother. The Attack has similar type of motion for me just more of it really strong and continuous on the back end. I am looking forward to more lane time with this ball to see what it can really do.

Mako Attack is a must! Mako did not disappoint and the Mako Attack really does not disappoint. The Mako Attack is stronger off the spot compared to the Paradox Trilogy in my opinion. I am a huge Trilogy fan, But for a polished Hybrid Mako Attack is a monster.

The Mako Attack for me is just more angular than the Mako. It's still clean through the front part of the lane, but once it sees friction it makes a turn for the pins.

The Track Mako Attack stores energy well through the heads for a high-performance ball and makes a strong, continuous motion through the pins. It is a perfect marriage of coverstock and core. The Paradox Trilogy QR-10 Hybrid cover is on this ball – is a very clean coverstock that wants to hook. With the Paradox core, the Trilogy looked great rolling on the lane – but for me – did not go through the pins as well as I hoped. However, with the Mako core, the same coverstock rolls clean, and explodes through the pins with a strong continuation.

The Mako Attack is going to be a great ball for both league and sport shots, particularly on things like PBA Chameleon.
