Drilled this ball as my pin down dull for the first ball out of the bag on fresh conditions.  The pin low drilling on this ball really evens the reaction out and the hit is incredible.  It really keeps the pins low.  Another great piece from Track!

Personally, I absolutely LOVE the 706 C/A from Track as it fits my game perfectly. Ball speed around 17.25, rev rate 375-380 RPMs.. Preferred starting target 7-8 board 40-42 feet down lane.

What I like for myself:

706 C/A is very clean through the heads, and very angular on the back end. This is my benchmark ball and I feel like I can get 3-4 games out of it easily in most competition settings. The cover is very adjustable. Use it polished when I need more length and pop down lane, use it dull when I need a more continuous mid lane motion. I can play a lot straighter with 706 C/A vs 706T and 714C. I can also move deeper into the lane than I can with 714C. Doesn't handle as much oil as 706T but still gives a reliable read in some heavier volumes. I feel like with 706 C/A, 706T, and 714C, I have a good range of bowling balls in three ball bag to tackle any fresh to partially broken down condition.

What is see with others:

706 C/A may be a little too clean through the heads out of the box for bowlers with very high ball speed. Usually have to dull the surface down a bit to see the ball pick up well. 706T seems to fit the bill more than 706 C/A. For the very rev rate bowlers who like to start real deep in the lane, I don't see as much responsiveness down lane. Seems like the ball wants to make a big move, but runs out of lane. A 910A would probably be a better choice for the Track fans in this category..

I rate 706 C/A, 7 out of 10. It may not fit in the bag for what everyone is expecting out of a upper mid-performance ball, but is still a good ball to have in the arsenal.

LANE CONDITION

Length: 40ft

Volume: 19.70

Type (THS, Sport Pattern etc):THS Wall Street

The layout that I choose for this ball was drilling #1 on track drill sheet, and the second ball drilling #4 (made adjustments according to my PAP with relation to the wording on the sheet) My PAP 2  1/4 over  1/8 down 17 mph ball speed.

I was able to use both bowling balls on the THS I have not had a chance to bowl on any short, medium, or long sport compliant patterns.  The first (drilling #1) 706c/a is very very smooth throughout the lane it is not going to wow you with the flip or turn on the back, however the controlled and readable reaction is why I really enjoy using this ball.  The drive through the pins is heavy once it gets into the roll before contacting the pins.  Their has to be friction down the lane to see the 706c/a hook potential if the front part of the lane or even the mids are hooking the ball will respond rather quick hence the c/a. 

The second ball (drilling #4) is strong for me at least three more boards then the previous layout mention above.  I am able to get in deeper and send the ball right and watch the angle off the spot continue through the pins.  I have left a few nine pins however that is expected with this layout it is strong and making a minor adjustment doesn’t hurt the recovery of the ball.  Both bowling balls are still somewhat box finish I have not altered the surface yet other then cleaning them regularly and wiping off the oil after each shot.  Having the 706 c/a will help you play straighter as well as open the lanes up, if the ball starts to dive or hit weak don’t be afraid to move or make the adjustment the core cover combo can be versatile if that is your style and game.
