Dry Heat
« on: December 31, 1969, 06:00:00 PM »
Dry Heat

Raise the temperature on your competition when you use the Dry Heat. The Track team has been researching the market to identify the needs of our customers. The most frequent request was for a ball that was specifically designed for drier lane conditions.. Initially we thought this could be an easy project to complete, but we soon realized that simply making a ball that hooks less is not enough. Our customers demand the control of the lane that our high performance balls provide. The oil used in bowling centers today are slicker than ever. For this reason we could not make your average high Rg low differential ball. In fact, we needed a lower Rg system to create the control necessary to tackle the newer lane oils. To create this reaction we removed the inner ball from the Heat core and cut the differential to .026. This design, wrapped in the Power Plus Solid coverstock will give the bowler extra length with a controllable arcing backend motion. Now you have the tools to compete on any condition that you encounter. Do the math:

DRY HEAT + DRY LANES = HIGH SCORES

I'm only 13 years of age, and have just started to bowl with Track. I throw a 90 degrees angle, and about 10-12 revs, throwing about 14 mph.

I got this ball because I saw many people bowling well with it. I asked a guy about the ball, he said it was a versatile ball. When I got the ball, I noticed it worked well on Medium-Heavy lanes. If I have Dry lanes, I move to 35-40, get it down about 40 feet, and out to about the 5 board, and it MOVES! If the outside of the lanes went out, I played 20 to about 15, and the oil carried it down, and at the last second, breaks into the pocket. When this ball hits, much nothing stands up. Lately, I have been bowling at least a 210 average, when I am normally a 160-170 average bowler. After 5 days, I bowled a 279 with it, my highest game yet, with a 701 series. I HIGHLY recommend this ball for any lane conditions.

TRACK RULES!

I layed this one out with pin under ring finger and cg next to midline right off the center line.

I only use this ball in the third game because that's the only time it acts so sweet.  In fact to prove that, I shot my first sanctioned 300 with that ball in the third game.

Ball gets down the lane with ease and still has enough energy to plow over pins.

Okay, I've had this thing for a little while now.  It's drilled with the pin above the middle finger, the cg directly below the ring finger and no weight hole.  This drilling makes the ball go long and flip a little bit.  I can play straight up on fresh oil or swing it a touch when the lanes start to dry out.  I actually used this on a 47' sport condition with great success.  I was suprised that this ball worked better than my Unleashed on the sport shot.  The Dry Heat is worth having in the bag for sure.  Thanks to Rick Leong for the drilling suggestion!

I have now turned 14 and now throwing 17-19 revs with 15 mph. I have a 190 average and am a big Track fan.

This ball has gone away a bit. It wont carry the ten pin, no matter what line I play. The only way I could get it to carry was by trying to find a dry spot from 15 to 5, then it would a bit of a chance.

Okay, just to tell everybody, I hate this ball now. It will hook as hard as it can sometimes, then throw it and it wont hook a board. I rarely throw this ball, and recommend it when it is new.

Hi, This is my first review since becoming a Track Staffer. I live on the east coast. I bowl in a center where the heads are burnt. Before i drilled this ball read the reviews and talk to the east coast sales rep about how strong this ball was. And wow they were right. I drill mine with the pin in the negative quarant under my finger the cg kicked out about 1 inch from my thumb. I throw the ball Hard but with a decent amount of revs probably 300-350. And i could either play up the bopards or get in and hook it when they really start hooking love this ball. Cant wait to see what's next in this line.

Track Dry Heat
Weight: 15#
Pin: 3'
Top Weight: N/A

Got this through a trade on here from user KMAN300. Excellent trader, would recommend him anytime to trade with.

I was in need of a dry lane ball, my luck being they introduced the Desert Heat when I got this one used. Had it re-plugged and re-drilled. Had it polished up to 1500 max! The ball doesn't move, which is what I wanted. I used this ball for about two to three weeks on the driest of conditions and it shined. Not a true dry lane ball, because I ended up getting a Desert Heat anyway. Will post review when they put the Desert Heat thread on here, but back to this one. I really liked it. I threw it on a 31 foot flat shot and used it for the whole six game block we bowled on it in my PBA/Sport League on Tuesday nights. I out averaged the whole field with this ball. As I said earlier, the Desert Heat replaced this one, but the time that I did have it I was very satisfied with it!

Yes, I am going to review this ball.

I know, it's been almost 6 years since the last person reviewed this gem, but I figured why not?

Drilled arc, nothing fancy. Coverstock is 2000 with a coat of XXX on it for the length I love from this ball.

Fresh plays up the boards typical bounce to the outside and hold to the inside. After some transition, the ball goes away and does not come out for another 6-8 games. Once the heads are dead, and the mids are fried, my friend comes back out to play. Deep inside I do not lose any carry power this is still a great ball.

If you find one sitting around somewhere, this is classic Track reaction from earlier this decade- probably one of my favorite line of bowling balls ever.
