Or, are there any other reviews since those of you have had it (for a few weeks now).

I've only bowled 6 games with mine and I love it. Drilled 4x3 with the pin under my ring finger, MB 2in right of my thumb. Drilled the same as my Reactive arsenal and Delta 1. 1/8oz side, 1/8 oz top and zero thumb.
For me, the Robo doesn't set up as quick as my Reactive Aresenal and is better on carrydown. When it turns its more of a continuous roll through the pocket that doesn't quit. Skid, rev and then Hook. Easy to line up with and still carried when playing in deep. This ball has a different roll to it, its hard to explain. A really strong midlane move but controllable, not flippy or snappy. Same great Track HIT.

Hey adman, thanks for the update.

One question, how does it compare to your Delta 1 drilled the same way?
Thanks!

My Delta actually goes a bit longer. My Delta is more, Skid then hook. The Delta has a sharper backend when compared to my Robo Rule. I was able to use the Robo Rule on more conditions than the Delta 1.

My main question is, does the Robo roll too soon?  With the weight block on the bottom of the ball, I think it's going to hit its roll way too soon.  Also, did you shine it up, or use it OOB?

kc, this has nothing with the ball rolling early unless you never get the block to flip over (Asian spinner release).  Once you get the block to turn over, then it actually tumbles and tumbling creates length.  Rolling early also comes from the combination of surface/core. The density of the core design is what dictates high to low rg, lower rg's do rev faster which in turn react sooner vs a core shape that lopes and delays revs.

Taken directly from Track's website description...

 
quote:
its u-shaped flip block moves more mass away from the center of the core, creating more energy for the backend.


This goes back to my definition of overall "imbalance".  Anything "imbalanced" will wobble and more wobble creates length or delay in a ball's reaction.  Anything centered (pin in palm) or balanced will roll more evenly or true because it does not have as much "imbalance".

I also need to throw more games with mine before I can post a review.  Vids are in my profile as well but hopes this helps explain some.
