Mako
« on: February 07, 2017, 10:58:24 AM »
Ball NPS Score: 100.00
The Mako shark is one of the most intelligent and most deadly sharks in the water. That is why Track named this high performance ball the Track Mako. This predator of a ball contains Track's second generation of their dual density core. The Mako core is wrapped in the QR-10 Solid coverstock making this ball ready to thrash in some heavy oil. This ball offers a quick response in oil as well as a continuous down-lane motion.

Color: Blue/Purple/Black
Coverstock: QR-10 Solid
Core: Mako (Dual Density)
Finish: 500 / 2000 Abralon
RG: 2.48 (15# ball)
Differential: .053 (15# ball)
Reaction: Strong Overall Hook
Recommended Lane Condition: Heavy Oil

Comments

Drilled the Mako with my benchmark drilling and will use as the first ball out of the bag on fresh conditions.  I really like the motion I am seeing as the ball gets thru the heads very nicely and the carry is incredible.  This ball seems to keep the pins nice and low.  I will be drilling a second Mako in April for nationals.

Mako (Box surface and lane polish)) – Pin up and to the right of the ring finger CG in line with the pin positive axis point is 4 3/8 right 1/2 up.

Various Patterns

I am impressed with the amount of length and NO burn up I get out of the Mako, I have been able to use it on a few different lane conditions.  Two that stick out in my mind are 41ft sport pattern and third game league house pattern.  On the sport pattern I was able to play right around the 8 and 10 board going straighter.  I think I did this for about a game and then I started to see the Mako stand up (hook earlier) from those lines I was playing I moved a three left with my feet and 2 with my eyes just to see if I would make it back to the head pin.  I was pleasantly surprised that the Mako didn’t over hook and it was just as smooth playing through more oil and had just as strong as a drive when I was playing straighter.  That is very impressive to me anytime I can play with one ball and it shows me its versatility.  On the third game house pattern in league the I have rolled with it enough the lane polish is present.  I really couldn’t get anything else to give me a decent reaction and it was strike here weak hit strong hit but nothing consistent.  I switched to the Mako and moved about 7 – 10 boards left and moved my eyes to the shadow of the 6-10 pin area.  The first ball I rolled it was a little weak getting back so I soften up on the next shot and it was something to see I have not been able to go coast to coast with a big ball in a long time and the finish the Mako has is pretty darn strong.  I had a couple times when the seven pin was standing and their was a pin that dropped down on it.  Also had a couple nine pins go out late if I ever get that look in a tournament I can only hope my repeatability is high that day because it is going to be let it go and watch it roll.
When you get a chance please check out the track recommendation tool however before doing so I will strongly suggest you go to your local pro shop and ask for assistance with getting your Rev Rate, Tilt, Axis Rotation and Ball Speed.
