Comments

Drilled the Strata with my benchmark drilling and will use as the first ball out of the bag on fresh conditions.  This is a very strong ball and there needs to be a lot of oil on the lane so if you are looking for a ball for heavy oil, the Strata is a great choice.

The Track Strata is really versatile asymmetric ball.  I have had the luxury of drilling up a Track Proof, a Strata and an Ebonite Aero.  I would say that the Strata strikes a balance between these other two balls.  The Strata offers a medium-paced response to friction, which lends it control of the midlane.  This ball responds well to changes with my release if I want it to continue a bit more, or roll a bit more forward, the core allows for me to manipulate it and make it do what I want.  Players with high rev rates, and players that have a lot of grip pressure will appreciate the way the Strata rolls off of friction, it does not overreact when it encounters friction very easily.  It shapes and continues very well for an asymmetric ball, and it rolls very hard and hits really well.  I carry more of the “off-hits” with this ball than with the Aero or the Proof, even though I like those balls for their own merits.
