Track Tundra Solid
The Track Tundra Solid is ideal when you need to cool the lanes down. The coverstock and core for this ball offer great control when it is needed. The Track Symmetric core has a high RG and low differential that allows the ball to retain energy longer and offer a smooth, controllable down lane motion. The QR-4 Solid coverstock found on this ball matches up well with the Track Symmetric core. With a 3000 grit sanded finish this ball doesn't have a hard time on the front of the lanes and still has ample traction when facing light to medium oil conditions.

Color: Black/Dark Blue
All colors do vary somewhat from the picture shown
Coverstock: QR-4 Solid
Core: Track Symmetric
Finish: 500/1000/3000 Abralon
RG: 2.57**
Differential: .029**
** RG and Diff are based off of 15 lb. balls
Reaction: Length with Continuous Backend
Recommended Lane Condition: Medium to Light Oil

I drilled the Tundra Solid pin up and left it at box finish and plan on using this ball for tournaments when the lanes dry up.  This ball gets down the lane nicely and surprisingly has a lot of backend.  This will be a great one on the lighter patterns when you have to move deep on the lane.

LANE CONDITION

Length:  41 foot

Volume:  Medium

Type (THS, Sport Pattern etc):  THS

The Tundra Solid is perfect for dry lanes. It also works great if you want to play a straighter line on medium oil. If the Tundra was too weak for you, the Tundra Solid is going to put a smile on your face. The solid cover blends out the chop and still gives you the pop on the back end to get the corners out.

Tundra Solid – Various sport and house patterns

Positive Axis Point 4 3/8 right 1/2 up.

I drilled the Tundra solid 40x4 1/4x 20 (Pin about 2 inches above the fingers) this is not a bad layout for me I wanted something a little stronger on the lanes when they are to fresh.  This worked out perfect I don’t have to play far right in order to see movement out of the Tundra, I can also play in a little as long as it doesn’t skid in the oil to long.  The move off the friction is smooth and the finish is nice.  I was surprised to see I could play on short and medium sport patterns with this layout, the Tundra will be a good ball when I get on more sport patterns early and late in the day.
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.

I drilled up this ball expecting it to be a late in block or late league kinda ball and it has worked out, but I have been using earlier & earlier. It has more teeth than I expected, has a nice smooth arc and hits hard. It fits between my pearl Tundra and my Hammer Web Tour. Nice add to my bag.

Length: 40'

Volume:

Type I used it late on a pattern at West Coast Challenge and made up a lot of ground fast. It's a beast on THS.


COMMENTS

Likes: I like the dark blue color scheme. I like the length and the power.

Dislikes: I left a stone 7 - 9 split. :-)

Don’t have a ball for dry/dryer conditions?!?! Look no further than the Track Tundra Solid! This is a perfect league ball that clears the front part of the lane really good and continues very strong in the backend! This ball packs a punch in hitting power! Definitely a must-have and go-to for dryer conditions. This ball will always be in my bag forleague and short tournament patterns.

 First, let me say this:  NOT A STAFFER

 And not really an in depth review, just my opinions and observations.

 Now, on to those:

 Was looking for a solid cover ball that was “weaker” than lots of others, and was leaning towards a Hustle Ink. Went to the shop to see about one, and he told me about this one. Decent cover, higher rg, and lower diff. Said he would make me a great deal on it since he already had it in stock, so I said sure.

 Drilled it pin over ring, cg stacked, which gives me about a 4 x 3 with my pap #’s.

 Well, it would be an understatement to say I was impressed. The ball was surprisingly clean through the fronts, started its transition further down than I thought it would, and made a very hard arc/turn to the rack. As long as I played close enough to the oil line to let it “bump” the dry, this thing was absolute money.

 Now, if I pulled it into the oil too far, it would skid too much and not recover in time, leaving me with flat tens, or even washouts. I considered this to be “operator error”, and continued to use it for the entire set.

 For many, I DO NOT believe this is a full set ball. Once I got my feet too deep, it didn’t seem to hit or carry as well, but as long as I could stay a bit out and play (bump) the track, it was great.

 First two games out of the box were 267-259. Then, when I moved into the lane, I only shot a “hit or miss” 180. :(

 If you are looking for something that is controllable, likes the drier track, and likes to be rolled (not thrown with lots of axis rotation), this could be a hidden gem.

 I know it has been for me.
