Balled drilled:  4 x 4 drilling, no balance hole, 1/2 positive side, 1/8 finger.

I had been waiting a while for this ball and I can assure you it was worth the wait.  First game X 6/ X X X X X X X X X X = 280, not a bad start.  This ball packs a punch and has no probs getting through the heads and turning the corner.  With no balance hole and the 4 x 4 drilling offered med flare, good length and a hard arcing finish.

For the money this ball offers heaps of hitting power at a fraction of the cost.  Has more finish and hook than it's brothers the HEX and MAGIC.  Excellent ball for the med-dry lanes.  I can see myself using this ball alot, especially into game 3 onwards.  Definite keeper, 9/10.

The Voodoo is a great ball for all styles of play.  It is exceptionally clean through the front of the lane and really flippy on the backend of the lane.  Most of the balls that I drill that have these characteristics tend to squirt on oil...Not the case with the Voodoo.  I found it to be very versatile.  I drilled this one with the pin 5 1/2 inches from my PAP above the fingers and the Cg 4 inches from my PAP.  This layout required a small hole which I put on the PAP.  This is a very strong ball for the money.

The Voodoo will cast a spell on you!

We took our test ball and drilled it with a "Label Leverage" drilling,
with the pin just above the ring finger in the 12:00 position, No wt. hole.

We took to the lanes and worked this ball over five pairs of lanes, several different lane conditions and found this ball was very friendly!

On the lanes that where Med to Oil, we found the ball smooth and controlled.
On the Med to Dry lanes the ball flexed its muscles! and turned strong and hard.

Great hitting power and carry! and with the lower econo price, this ball will work for many bowlers! the New Voodoo will work for many different style of bowlers and we recommend this ball to all bowlers!

Compliments the Hex very well! Slightly Stronger ball than the Hex!

Bought this ball to compliment my Reaction Ricochet as the lanes begin to dry out, and it seems like this ball may fit the bill.  Don't get me wrong, there are plenty of balls that hook less than this one on dry lanes, but this ball gives me great length with a nice arc on the backend.  I had it drilled 5 x 5 with no weight hole.  This ball goes a tad longer than my Ricochet, and doesn't make as hard of a turn when it gets to the backend.  The carry this ball give appears to be another asset, kicks out the corners nicely.  If your're interested in a medium-dry lane ball, that won't flip as hard on the back end as some other choices, this would be a great selection.

Another great Track Product. After throwing the Hex and doing so well I thought I would try the Voodoo. I,ve only a few games in with it, but I see its versitility and compliment to the hex. Very good mid lane read and nice back end, I would say this ball does not have as much overall hook as the Hex but is a stronger ball. Will post more as I get more opportunity to throw it. I will still be throwing the Hex in the mean time. Thanks For reading. God Bless

Hello everyone, whats up?  I just bought the voodoo the other day at Texas Station in Las Vegas, NV.  I was talking about it with mark who works there and he agreed that I needed a medium oil or dry ball.  I have the trimax2 by ebonite, but the voodoo is such a better ball.  Not really sure the drill pattern or specs.  He drilled it to get length on the lane.  Has a weight hole.  Think the pin is under ring fingers.  Not sure though.  Anyway, this ball is great for me because i dont have much hook.  I mean if i want hook i get out my adrenaline or my savage.  I can't make the ball hook.  My coach says i dont have enough hand for that.  I love how this ball goes down the lane and then when you dont expect it, it hooks to the pocket.  I love the carry that I get out of this ball.  I'm thinking about using it on my Saturday night league where the lanes are usually wet/dry conditions.  For anybody who wants a good dry lane ball, the voodoo would be a perfect buy.  And also, I'm mostly an ebonite and storm type person.  I think that since I like the voodoo, I might go with another ball by track.  

Good job track!!!!!!!!!!

This is another winner for the technology experts at Track Inc. This ball is truly amazing. It creates more area than any ball I currently have. If you are looking for a medium condition ball that can get down the lane and carry from just about anywhere, this is it.

Great meduim oil ball.  Got mine drilled 3 3/8 with the pin and CG both to the right of my hand.  This ball has such a nice line that it's a piece of art even though I have left about 2-3 more 10 pins per set than normal but it's hard to miss with this ball.  Watch out when the heads dry up a little.  It will want to hit and hook so I just put a little more loft under it and it's fine.  Haven't thrown it on heavy oil yet and probably never will based on where I bowl.  A definate 10/10 for look and 9/10 overall performance.

Well this is a real review of the VooDoo, I've had the opportunity to throw this ball the last week and it is a great ball. I have had to preety good sets this last week (760,752).What I liked is that I did'nt have to throw the ball 20mph. I was able to throw it with good avg speed and the speed was the key. To much speed it was a 10 pin and to little was through the nose.It is a very speed sensitive ball easy to throw through the break point if your not careful. Worth a Try if you need a med to dry ball(it will read the dry). I Like this ball but not as much as the Hex. Good luck and God bless.
God Bless

Pin 2 1/2 inches out, topweight 2.5, put the pin just off the ring finger @ 1:30, left in out of box polish. I throw the ball with a lot of hand and medium speed. Threw this bad boy on a house condition where outside 10 is pretty dry. The ball covered way too many boards but I did like the medium arc and it flew on the back ends. Can't wait to get this thing on some oil. When I could find the pocket, the carry was true. Great ball, especially for the price.

Rolled the Voodoo in practice, my lague doesn't start til next week. I got your basic label drilling.(left handed) All I can say is wow, remember the balls of the early 90's and how they had the predictable snap hook? That roll is back and back with a vengeance. This ball drilled label,14lb., 18mph, lots of hand, rolled great. If you are a strong player frustrated with lanes not being right for you, the witch doctor has prescribed the cure. Like I say on every review though, I love this ball, you may hate it. Bowling balls and their drillings are like snowflakes, they are react diffrently depending on hand, drilling, speed, core assembly, and coverstock. When you find the combo that likes you, stick with it. Good luck, and good bowling, Shaun"Lefty" Daniel.

I have had the Voodoo for about a month now and I must ditto the previous review. I have the ball drilled with the pin right above my bridge. Axis hole kicked 4"+- for an earlier reaction. The ball rolls, goes long, sets up with a slight left turn and then charges. I throw mid speed(15-17MPH) with alot of hand. Went to the ABC's in May and had a 699 singles set. I have used this ball in league just three times...three game set of 670 and two four game sets of 964(299) first game and a 981. House shot is relatively easy. Typical Christmas tree condition. To say that I am impressed is an under statement. The drilling I have makes the ball very speed sensitive. Consistant speed is a must. Slow and it hooks sharp and early...Fast and it goes long and hooks a little late. You can make mistakes right with decent recovery...light hits carry well with this ball. and yes...it does keep the pins low. This is the first Track ball I have purchased since the original Critical Mass. I have been a fan of Storm for the past few years using an Eraser, Super Power Pearl and Regular Power Bolt. I have had luck with all three of the above mentioned balls but seem to be favoring the reaction of the Voodoo as of late. Very impressed. 9 out of ten....the only ball that would get a ten would be one that got strikes for me with my eyes closed...and this one is pretty close. (Update).....eight weeks of summer league(four game blocks) with pretty much exclusive use of my VooDoo and I am averaging 226.56......incredible ball.............(Update)...7/25/02...threw a 300 with the VooDoo...four game set of 986....203...257....300....226....love this thing...
