Found this video this morning and found it very informative EBI explaining core values and how ball companies get those. He uses Blueprint which shows the values. Really cool stuff.

Cyborg pearl has more length and more backend than the Logix IMO
Yeah. I really liked the cyborg pearl. Gave it to jr leaguer in need.

Maybe it's just me but for the life of me why would you take a Track Alias $165 and put a weak symmetrical layout on it?  Unless you got one cheap I can't see it.  There are so many better options for a symmetrical smooth ball reaction at a better price point.

Oh I agree with that, the symmetrical drilling for this ball is not what I would want. Like you said at that price point you have cheaper options for sure.

There is a companion video that was posted with the Track Presents Cores 101 video

Alias - An In-Depth Look at the Engineering and Principles Behind Track's Latest

Apparently the youtube comments on these videos have been deleted.

Take this for what you will, But here is one comment posted with this video that I happened to save that commented on why would you use the sym. layout on the alias:

Youtube comment by Jeff Piroozshad:
Track - thank you for this and the Cores video. They were very helpful in understanding these effects in more detail.

I do have one question regarding the Symmetric layout. Originally, I thought "why wouldn't you just drill a symmetric ball like a GB3 or a Fierce Phobia instead of jumping through the hoops to drill an Alias with the symmetric layout?"

I then remembered after watching the Cores 101 video it's because a symmetric ball will always be asymmetric after drilling, whereas the Alias will always be symmetric after drilling.


I was hoping you might be able to put up a video of the ball reaction difference between a symmetric Alias and a ball that's symmetric pre-drilling to illustrate the difference and show why a bowler should drill a symmetric Alias rather than a pre-drilling symmetric ball. Thank you.


This seems to address why also:
