- Description: Truly the best high performance ball Track has ever made, the 919C features an all new core with a revolutionary “HAZE” coverstock. The name of the game: continuation! To make the most continuous mid-lane ball motion our R&D team could produce. Yes, you heard me right…“C” is for continuous not control. The new Edge Asymmetric core shape boasts an awesome amount of mid-lane power, specially designed for mid-lane continuous ball motion. Our chemists have come up with yet another new and stronger coverstock formulation. One that has a rather unique side effect…a unique HAZE to it. Our team can only describe it as a HAZE that will change its appearance from environmental conditions. This HAZE has no bearing on performance, but the look is phenomenal! Some will HAZE more than others and some will change appearance just from using the product. It is truly a unique blend, and we are sure you will agree a spectacular performing bowling ball. We have packed this ball in a modified red poly bag. This is to protect the ball from environmental influences to keep its HAZE appearance. The ball does not need to remain in this bag. It is specifically to protect the ball’s coverstock while in the distribution chain. This is the first time that Track has ever put the coverstock logo on the ball, too. As a reminder, each new ball from Track now includes a microfiber cleaning pouch with instructions on its use. We feel this is a great addition in order to help our customers maintain their performance products.

Let me start by saying WOW!!! This ball is great, again I drilled this ball pretty standard layout < on the spec sheet pin at 12:00and MB 3in right of my thumb. The is a length and control type drilling for me. So the 916 AT is a strong ball but I always noticed as the night went on for me and the lanes started to break down I always had to put it back in the bag. It would start to quit on me down lane because it was burning up. So first night in my summer league 751 out of the box throwing it all three games. Unlike the 916 this ball never quit, the C is for continuous and that's what you get! This ball rolls through the pins unlike any other. Even as the night went on and I moved in around 25 this ball just didn't stop. I finished the night playing 25 to 8 and like i said unreal, I could have had a bit more but two stone 9's the last game cost me a few pins. This is no doubt the best 9series ball Track has ever made.

  I have tried all the 900 series balls and my opinion the 919c is the best one yet. The haze cover stock on this ball is something special unlike the 916at this ball will not lose its energy as the night goes on when the lanes started to go away you had to put the 916 away, not with this baby it never stops. Very clean thru the front gets you to the break point then rather being a hard jump off the spot it just makes a nice continuous motion to the pocket. When you start to see a little early hook just bump it to the left a few boards if you see some carry down this ball just lets go back to right and continue to strike. The carry with this ball was fantastic. I plan on getting a lot of mileage with this ball in the upcoming year another great ball by Track.

 The ball seems to match up with whoever is throwing it.  It is smooth and continuous.  It stores just enough energy to carry from missed shots and really drives through the pocket when you throw a good one. Ultimately, carry was fantastic and that's something no one can complain about.  Matches up to medium conditions just right for most bowlers.

Likes: I absolutely love everything about the new 919C!  I've been a staffer for several years going back to TX and I can safely say that this is hands down, the best HP ball I've EVER had in my hands.  Layed out 5x4, the ball gets me fairly easy length and packs a big punch at the pocket.  When the ball comes off the bottom of the pattern, you can practically see it rev up and stop...  Now...I've seen this plenty of times before, and what usually follows is a 90 degree jump to the left.  This is not the case with the new 919C!  I get a nice hard arc around the corner and continuation that is positively UNMATCHED.  The carry I get with this particular piece is nothing short of amazing.  As the night goes on and things transition, I can continue to bump in with this ball and not sacrifice carry.  The 919C does not burn up and quit the way the 916AT did later in the night.  Now granted...the AT is not a ball that was designed to handle things after they blow open and begin to burn unless you've got some shine to it.  Obviously that's where the 920T came into play. The 919C is going to roll earlier and smoother than your 920A, but don't take "smoother" as lopey.  The ball does get around the corner, but it is controlled.   The overall versatility of this piece is unbelieveable and the cover is very receptive to changes which is a huge plus for the tourney players.  To top it all off...this ball looks great going down the lane as well!

 This is a potential Ball Of The Year candidate.  If you have left Track or not tried Track for any reason, I'm going to sincerely ask you to give us a shot or a second chance. 

 

Dislikes: Dislikes?  Absolutely None!

Likes:I drilled mine using Tracks #3 Aggressive hook W/ strong backend. Ive bowled on two different house patterns and the nationals pattern.Bowling on the nationals pattern (I wish I would have had it when I bowled)It read the mids very evenly and the backend was a very strong arc rolling continually through the pins. Bowling on the THS the ball was amazing, the ball did everything I needed it too,it didnt over react on the dry yet still finished hard when pulled in the oil.Will be a highly recommended ball this season.

LANE CONDITION

Length: 39 ft
 
Type (THS, Sport Pattern etc): House Shot

 
COMMENTS

Likes: Smooth and predictable

Dislikes: Too much ball for the House Shot 

Strong and smooth.

I drilled this with a 70º mass bias and 4.5" pin to PAP with the pin over the fingers, just like my 916AT for comparison.

On a house condition it was difficult to tell much difference between the 919C and 916AT.  I could stand in the same spot and get both ball to the pocket.  But as I moved left into heavier oil I could tell that the 919C was stronger and earlier in heavy oil than the 916AT.

For me, this is a bit too much ball for a house pattern, but I think this ball will be great on lane conditions that have a little more oil

Once again I'm here to talk about another great ball in the Track Arsenal "919C". Let's start by talking a bit about the 916AT this ball was sick when I was able to throw it do to low units being used in the area. Tho the 919c is what i would call the missing link in the 9 series line, with the surface on it you can still get it to read in the oil but it still in my opinion clears a lot better than any 9 series ball I've thrown. I drilled mines pin 12 o'clock mb 30 degrees just like the 916 and its unbelievable throw the fronts and so continuous down lane I love it! I believe this is a ball you must have for the fresh and definitely a must need for your tournament patterns. The great thing is with the "Haze" its great if you don't have it you should go get it when it becomes available.

COMMENTS




Likes:The 919C is more aggressive than I thought! More motion than any other 9 series ball! The Out of Ball Surface had to be changed slightly for me to able to line up on the House Pattern. I used Factory Finish Polish and the 919C shined right up! The motion at the break point was continuous and powerful. The 3000 abralon surface was too aggressive early for the house pattern! The new core and cover is a fantastic match. I also used the ball on the Middle of the Road and the 919C allowed me to have room and a consistent backend motion. The ball is a must for anyone looking for a big piece with continuous backend motion.
The layout was 55x5 1/2x45 with xhole at 6 inches from center line. My numbers are: axis 5 5/8 over and 3/4 up, rev rate around 315, and a tweener with miminal axis rotation.
 


Dislikes: The 919C will start up early on drier conditions.

Likes: I was very surprised to see how aggressive this ball was in the mid lane. With a 5" pin to PAP distance and an rg rating of 2.53, I was really expecting more length out of it, especially on this Scorpion pattern. This core and cover combo have made it really easy to get traction and continuation on slicker patterns. I have since drilled one with a 5.5" pin to PAP and a 4.5" pin to PAP to get a wide variety of angles I can play. The 5.5 ball is longer, but still stronger than I had hoped. The 4.5 ball however has given me a fantastic look on the fresh oil sport patterns and because of the rg of the ball I can stick with it longer without losing the pocket. All the balls were finished by me at 4000 (out of box is 3000)

Track 919C
 

First, thanks to Track (Fig) for giving me a 919c in an on-line contest.

Paul, you are awesome. Thanks.

 

Second, I am not a staffer, pro bowler, nor a paid consultant. I am a 50+ year old bowler who ran a Pro-shop for 15+ years. I am retired from the Pro-shop business at this time. I average in the low 200's.

 

The 919C is, in my opinion, one of the best balls out on the market at this time. But, like all High End balls, you need to match up drilling, cover prep, to benefit from the technology. If you don't like this ball, you drilled it wrong for your style or you need to change the cover or the pattern you are bowling on. Mine is drilled very simple; pin up, pin/cg on center line, mass bias 2 inches right of center line. I took the ball out of box and put powerhouse factory polish on it prior to use. It shined up easy and well.








 

Results: I have a ball that gets good length on an ABC white pattern, and a very strong but smooth arc. When this ball hits the pocket, the pins just dissappear off the lane. On this pattern, I have to be consistant with speed and targeting to get to the pocket. It is too strong for this pattern, (for my style and ball speed). It never rolled out on me either.

 But,

I can't wait to take this ball to Baton Rouge, It has an awesome roll with tremendous carry.

Great ball from Track, thanks Paul.

LANE CONDITION


Length: 45 ft

Volume: Heavy

Type (THS, Sport Pattern etc): Route 66


COMMENTS
Likes:  Clean up front, continuous motion in the mids/backend, good retention of energy on the backend, predictable
Dislikes: None


As an early Christmas present to myself and with the advice of my driller, I decided to pick up a new 919C.  Being my second EBI ball, I figured it would be a great compliment to my Storm Anarchy/VG Nano when I need to have a different look on certain oil patterns.  As I did with my Nano, I went to the house I played at over the summer since they use Route 66 as one of the main patterns to give it a good test.


Stats: 380-420 revs, 19-22mph speed, right hander, and love playing outside but can throw inside when needed.  The 919C is drilled pin above ring finger, 4" distance pin to CG, weight hole at P3, OOB surface


The 919C does not disappoint.  Knowing the flat oil pattern, this ball really handled it well.  This ball was clean up front, and worked its magic in the mids.  Playing up 2nd arrow on this pattern, it provided me with a consistant and continuous hook on the fresh and carried very well in the first few practices I've thrown with it so far.  The ball does a great job with pin carry, being better than a lot of the heavier oil balls out there.  I didn't run into issues with the ball burning up as I sometimes can on the fresh once the lanes transition.  When I did throw a few shots that were high, the ball still retained a lot of energy to help break up and carry potential split leaves.  A few times, I was able to send multiple messengers which resulted in X's on the board. 

At a different house which has more head oil but friction on the backends, I found it to be very good inside.  At this house, I went 25 to 10 and really liked how responsive it was off the dry.  Again, the reaction is very predictable and the carry is excellent. 

During the few sessions that I have used this ball, only simple adjustments were needed. Compared to other balls of this type, I was able to stick with this ball longer when both inside or outside. That is a huge plus in my book.

I got some great comments from others watching me throw this ball.  Some of the comments included that the ball looks great, and they love how hard it hits/carries.  One person thought the "haze" effect was pretty cool since it was warmer in that house.  Another bowler said he could hear this ball striking from a few pairs over since it was hitting the pins really hard.  I love hearing stuff like that from others.


I see this ball fitting in my arsenal right below my Nano and above my Anarchy. The VG Nano still handles heavier oil better than most. However, this ball is better than the Anarchy when lanes transition and is much more consistant with midlane/backend reaction.  In addition, I find this ball to be more versatile than many of the medium-heavy oil balls that are available.  If you're a stroker, tweener, or cranker, this ball can easily work for you.


Being my second EBI ball and first Track ball, I am very impressed.  This absolutely has a home in my arsenal now.  I recommend the 919C if you want a predictable ball for heavier conditions but need the versatility of playing multiple lines/angles.  I also recommend this ball since it doesn't seem to burn out on the backend once the lanes transition. 


Bottom line: the 919C is a great ball.  Regardless of brand, it is one of the better pieces on the market right now.  Check it out.
