A few weeks ago I had the bright idea to make some changes to my grip and so I started cleaning out all of my older balls in my arsenal. By the time I was done I realized I did not keep anything that had my old specs and I only had a few balls with the new grip. After a couple of weeks using the new grip I decided to go back to my old grip and that meant I had nothing. So from here on out I rebuilding my ball arsenal and will most likely be adding a few balls that I already had and got rid of.

Now without further delay here is my ball review of one of my only two balls.

What I Was Looking For In This Ball Layout:
Well I have been extremely impressed with the "New" Track since Ebonite purchased them. The anticipation of The Rising had me a little worried because sometimes you build up the ball reaction in your mind and it does not meet your expectations.

I wanted to see what this ball had to offer. We used Tracks recommended layout on this ball and we left the cover alone. We hope to do some adjustments later on but for the sake of getting a good review we left everything alone and used as Track intended.

What I Ended Up With in the Ball and Layout:
Strong, strong, strong ball motion. I thought my Kinetic offered the perfect ball motion, not taking anything away from that great Track ball but this ball is nuts. I don't know how they got this ball to be so solid and clean int he front and middle part of the lane with this core and coverstock combination
but they did.

The Rising was a huge surprise for me in the first 40 feet of the lane. I was expected a lot of overall hook from start to finish but this ball follows Track's signature of long and strong. I swear I think a polished one of these balls could get you well into a 8 game sweeper it is so clean in the front.

Enough for the front lets talk about the part of the lane where this ball will blow your mind - the back! I saw this ball literally stop and put its left turn signal on. It makes one of the strongest and I guess steepest moves I have seen. I mean it came back from any spot on the lane with any ball speed I could muster up. If you read my Kinetic review you know I love that ball and it did hook a lot on the back as well. But this was different hook. This was more but in a different way.

This is definitely a ball worth trying especially if you need one of the strongest overall ball motions offered today.
