505C

Average Customer Review: 4.77 of 5 stars

I have 2 of these. One is drilled 4 x 3, one is drilled Rico. The one with the 4 x 3 layout is very aggressive and pretty angular. The Rico drill is very smooth, and the one I like better of the 2. I chose this ball because Track claims it is a good ball for light to medium oil. I bowl on old wood lanes with Guardian overlay. In my opinion, this ball is too much ball for the older lanes I bowl on, regardless of layout. If this is the weakest ball in Track's new series, then they need to design and produce a 303L to use where I bowl. L for length.

About the Bowler

The Track 505c is by far the best ball i have found to improve my game. The concistancy and accuracy are tremendous and adjustments are easy. The 505c has helped to raise my average 27 points in the last year.

I've been bowling with the 505C for about two months now. The first two to three weeks had a hard time adjusting my game to it. But since then it has help me raise my average by 20 to 30 pins per game. It is very predictable, and if I don't miss my mark it gets to the pocket almost every time. Don't get me wrong, this ball hooks, but in a more controlled kind of way. I recommend this ball to any bowler with a slow to medium ball speed, or who like me has difficulty hitting the pocket once the lanes start to breakdown.

This ball definitely has a spot in my bowling bag. I have been a Track fan for a number of years and there new line is still holding up to it's name long and strong. I bowl on synthetic lanes and this ball have a smooth roll with a very aggresive back-end movement. This a a great ball and price!

About the Bowler

This ball definitely has its niche. In the "drier" houses in which a real strong back-end ball has trouble with carry, this is the ball that will. This ball will carry virtually anywhere. This is a universal ball which any level of bowler can use. This a a great ball, and the price is a steal!

About the Bowler

I bought the 505C about 8 weeks. I had it drilled non aggressive, so it would be a more down and in ball. But it has turned into my go to ball in most all situations. The control is amazing, it hits the pocket like a bomb, and I have raised my average 31 pins in 5 weeks from lst year. Four weeks ago I bowled my first 700 series with this ball and last week I bowled my first 299 with my second 700 series. this ball is a definite need to have if you desire a ball that you can control and still have good striking power at your fingertips. KUDOS to track I will probably stay with you forever, I am sold.

The 505c easily pushes through the front part of the lane, and then provides a smooth transition at the break point. This ball works great on short and medium patterns when control is needed down lane. This ball makes a great addition to any tournament players bag, to handle conditions that other equipment will over react on. For house shots, this ball gives the average bowler easy length and a predictable, consistent reaction. Coupled with the correct drilling for the player, the 505c can become a go to ball for any skill level of bowler.

The Track 505C is so worth the money spent. It is a very cheap ball that gives me a lot of options. I use this ball on a light medium oil pattern. It has an awesome reaction and carries through the pins without any loss of momentum. Check this ball out and get one in your hands today!

This ball works great until you have to keep moving deeper. Then you have absolutely no carry at all. As long as the pattern is fresh you will be fine. Dont be fooled by the whole control statement. This ball hooks!!

About the Bowler

The 505C is the closest thing to the Desert Heat that Track has made in quite a while. It has the core of the original Kinetic, but the shell is a lot tamer. It has an RG of 2.48 and a differential of .048. I have mine drill with the pin between the finger above the bridge with the thumb being drille thru the MB. This pattern allows me to get the length that I need without the ball making a huge turn on the back end. If you need to create more length, use Ebonite's Extener Polish. Great ball for dry to medium lanes.

I have two of the 505c one layed out pin above ring cg kicked out with a hole in the side and its about 4 boards less than my tantrum but really smooth it allows me to play third arrow to second arrow with a really control reaction. The other one is layed out pin below middle cg in palm this allows me to play up the lane with a smooth reaction i have been very impressed with this ball if your looking for a ball that is like the track heat this would be your ball an amazing league ball for all types of bowlers.

About the Bowler

The 505c is great! Drilled a couple of them up, both different layouts. Ball one, pin above middle finger with mass bias 3/4\" from thumb hole. I saw a stronger backend motion on the back but yet still I could still control it. Ball two is layed out with a common lay out. Pin up and between the fingers, mass bias kicked out a inch. I get a good read with a nice controlled back end motion.

Ball one I've bowled a few sets with so far and have not shot under 690 yet, ball two has one set on it which i shot 740 with it on the cheetah.
