Track Reveals the New 912T, 706A, 503T and 300A

“Our goal was to create a ball that simply out hooked and (out) performed every ball ever made in the history of Track.” The new Track introduction in the 900 series is 912T.  With the Legion 2 Turbo core creating easy revs while storing plenty of energy for the back end  the 912T features the brand new Gen ET (Extreme Traction) cover. Track included: “The “Traction” this cover creates is out of this world. We accomplished this by taking our Gen XT (Xtra Traction) cover used on the popular 716T and slowly increased the “Traction” additives until we created the best cover to match up with heavy oil patterns.”

Track further explained “In order to create the strong overall hook that was desired when creating the 912T, we decided to go with our newest finishing process. This process uses 1500 Abranet Soft as the last finishing step. Abranet Soft is a new type of sanding material that was developed to minimize clogging while sanding. The foam layer and open structure of Abranet Soft provides more flexibility and allows the material to follow surface contours more effectively.” Available June 21, 2012.

Later this summer, Track will reveal the New 706A. Track explained The concept for creating the 706A was simple. We wanted a core/cover combination that would provide the aggressive move at the breakpoint the “A” series is known for, with improved continuation through the pins. Our R&D team accomplished this by creating both a brand new core and cover. 706A is the first Track ball to feature the brand new Helmet core. For the 706A, our R&D team developed our new Gen XA (Xtra Angle) cover. The finish process is the final factor that determines our overall ball motion. For the 706A, we started with 800 Abranet then followed it up with 1000 and 2000 Abralon. Once the sanding is done, we apply our Powerhouse Factory Finish Polish." Available July 24, 2012.

In August, Track introduces the 503T. The Packman core offers moderate revs due to the medium Rg values combined with a large overall flare potential. The new GenMT (Moderate Traction) cover is a modified version of the Gen XT (Xtra Traction) cover found on the 716T. By reducing the amount of Traction additives, Trackcreated a cover that will match up the best with medium to oily lane conditions. The finish process is the final factor that determines the overall ball motion. For the 503T, they started with 800 Abranet then followed it up with 1000 and 2000 Abralon. This finish will provide enough traction for oily lanes while allowing the 503T, to still be useful on medium oil patterns as well. Available August 28, 2012

 The 300A is designed for when there is too much friction for today's high-performance balls. A combination of the Track Symmetric Core and Gen MA (Moderate Angle) cover provided the building blocks for a ball to complement the 300T and 300C. The 300A comes with standard polished factory finish. The surface is finished with 800 Abranet and then working up with 1000, 2000 and then 4000 Abralon before Powerhouse Factory Finish Polish. Those looking for a little less length can achieve it by sanding with a 2000 Abralon pad and then re-polishing. Available June 21,2012.
