The Lx16 is the high performance ball for Track in this latest series of ball releases. Under Track’s new naming system, the “L” balls will be aimed at lower rev rates. This ball uses the new QR-8 Pearl coverstock that is sanded with a 3000 Abralon pad. The core is the new low RG I-Core.

This cover and core match was best for our testers on the heavy oil test pattern. The sanded cover chewed through the oil in the front, giving us plenty of hook on this slicker pattern. This was hands-down the best of the new Track releases
