Who comes up with those names?

This compared to the 10 year break Tracks marketing team took while they numbered their balls. I'll take this. They are a little off the wall but I think that's just the Korean influence. Since that's what the owner is.

Tracks number system, while confusing to many bowlers,  actually had meaning. But I guess the LM current naming methodology does too....at least to someone.

Yes it did for us technical junkies but as one lady bowler told me once, "Dammit, I don't want to have to do math just to figure out what ball I need!" LOL!

It is what it is!
Some days you're the bug....some days you're the windshield...that's bowling!

She probably understands "Swag Big Bro" just fine.  ;D

That numbering system was so dumb. 10 years later and they all kinda mesh together. You would have to think long and hard to list 5 standouts from that line. Was it the 505A, OR 505C? Or C/A? Or maybe it was a 607 or 608? A,C,T, C/A or AT? ....I dunno, they all just kinda skid and laid off in the back.
