Type (THS, Sport Pattern etc):




  I started bowling again after about a ten year layoff from leagues. In Sept.I started with my Old blue Hammer carried a 168 ave. I bought a Track 505a in Nov it took me about one mo. to get used to it . I have been bowling an 185 ave over the past 6 weeks with my Track 505A  . Last week I had 18 strikes. I still have not hit 600 series. and that  bring me to my dislike. Dislikes: As with the old hammer both balls leave the 7 pin. I am lefted and I thro the ball about 14-15 mph over the 5-8 board. Med REV. I am 5ft.0in. 150lbs  and I am 55yrs, old. I belive the Track is a good fit for me.     I will buy a ball for my spares ,

Likes:Ball makes a nice break off of dry boards.

Dislikes: Ball tends to slide if there is too much oil.

I typically bowl on AMF synthetic lanes, my ball speed is generally between 15.5 and 16 mph and my current average in 179.

The 505A has been a great addition to my arsenal. 


Please see the picture with how mine is drilled. This ball provides a stronger overall arcing motion for me but saves enough energy to still hit hard.


I have not had any issues carrying with this ball as I know I can rely on it to finish through the pins.


Currently I have the surface right around 4000 with some shine on top of it. I may explore the option of taking some of the shine down to see how that affects my reacton but as it stands I know exactly what it does.


Definitely a great asset to anyone's arsenal that is looking for a ball they can rely on to have a smooth overall arcing motion.
