The Track Lx05 is the second release since the change to the new naming system that uses the Modified Kinetic core. This weight block is wrapped by the QR-4 Hybrid coverstock that is finished at a rough 2000 Abralon grit. This combination creates the earliest hooking motion of any Track ball in recent history.

This ball has no problem getting started in the oil and it was best for us on our heavy volume test pattern. The sanded cover easily chews through the oil, creating plenty of hook in the front of the lane. What makes the Lx05 special is that it still has enough left to make a move at the back end, which is not something we can say
