COMMENTS

Likes: For me the Track Kinetic Platinum is more skid/ big smooth, strong arc than skid/flip, which as far as I'm concerned is a good thing. I think it picks up sooner than most pearl covers and gives me a nice smooth strong motion rather than the abrupt change of direction that can get me in trouble. This one is a winner. Beyond that, the Platinum & Orange writing look great. It is a beautiful ball that should pass the eye test.

COMMENTS

The Kinetic Platinum is so clean through the fronts of the lanes and provides a strong flip motion on the backend once it sees friction.  If you are looking for a transition ball on house patterns and sports patterns, the Kinetic Platinum is the ball for it, you will not be disappointed.

I really loved the Kinetic line and have a different color scheme is awesome.  The silver color has great shelf appeal and the performance does not disappoint at all.  Clean through the fronts and stores a strong angular reaction for the end.  This one would be best suited for medium lane conditions with this layout because it does have good length.  It can also be used for when the fronts start to dry up and the transition starts during league.
