The Track Tactix was designed to be a solid benchmark ball, the first one out of your bag. This ball combines the QR-9 Solid coverstock with the Starship core. The coverstock was created to best match up on medium to heavy oil and offers good traction in the midlane and continuation on the backend and beyond. The core was created to offer heavy mid-lane roll. Because the core only has a little asymmetry it picks up faster in the midlane without using up all of it's energy. This ball has a low RG and a higher differential which assist in a quick rev up and a continuous shape downlane.

Recommended Lane Condition: Medium to Heavy Oil

COMMENTS

I have heard a lot of great things about this new Track Tactix and had to try it out to see what the buzz was about… WOW – this is an amazing ball motion for the Track brand. Versatility solid that can be used on a lot of various medium / heavier lane patterns. This is a stronger version of the original Track Legion Solid which is still in my tournament bag . The Tactix rolls strong in the mid-lanes and does not stop continuing through the pin decks. I have a similar layout on my Legion Solid, and the Tactix is about 2 feet earlier and same strong backend motion to handle the heavier lane patterns that most patterns now have.

I think this is a great benchmark ball for most bowlers that love the Track brand which will be able to keep this ball in your hands a little longer than most other stronger equipment. I was able to chase left with the lane pattern and still have enough down the lane to create good angle to the pocket.

The Tactix has a great ball motion that does not stop rolling in the backend – it really continues through the pin deck! Very versatile ball for all styles of bowlers
