The first addition to the new LX line from Track, designed for low rev bowlers, the LX16!
Bowlers with lower rev rates need more help from the bowling ball than anyone, the reason we've developed the brand new Lx16. In order to achieve our targeted ball motion, we've armed the Lx16 with Track's latest and greatest in both core and coverstock development.
The i-Core is one of the most unique core designs Track has ever produced. This also marks the return of multi-density cores back to the Track brand. With this one core design, we can produce anything from a perfectly symmetrical ball to one with a high intermediate differential. Basically, we have the ability to go from a core that has a smooth response to friction to one that creates a very aggressive response. For the Lx16, we've chosen densities which will put us on the more aggressive side.
Our Track engineers have developed a series of new covers with specific bowling styles in mind. We know that bowlers with the highest rev rates have no trouble getting a ball to turn the corner at the back end of the lane. The opposite is true for those with lower rev rates. We've developed our QR (Quick Response) covers specifically for those with lower rev rates or anyone that needs help getting that big move downlane. The Lx16 features our QR-8 Pearl, one of our most aggressive covers.
The Lx16 utilizes a 800/1000/2000/3000 Abralon factory finish. This finish will provide moderate traction in the mid-lane while maximizing the strength of the Lx16 at the breakpoint on medium to heavy oil patterns. For those who are truly rev challenged, don't be afraid to adjust the cover down to with a 2000 grit Abralon pad.
Overall: If we all had a 500 rev rate and could throw the ball 20 mph, there would be no need for high paid engineers in the bowling business. Fortunately for them, the average bowler has a rev rate of 350 rpms or less. Thus the need for balls like the Lx16.
Technology has a place in bowling and we've put it in the brand new Track Lx16.
