RG
Radius of Gyration: measurement related to weight distribution of the core. This affects how quickly a ball will get in to a roll. A ball with a higher RG will roll later. A ball with lower RG will roll sooner.

14 LB. - 2.54
15 LB. - 2.52
16 LB. - 2.53
Differential
Difference between the RG of the core's x-axis and y-axis. Indicates track flare potential and stability. A higher differential means more flare potential and less stabilty. A low differential ball will be more stable and have less flare potential.

Intermediate Differential 
Difference between the RG of the core's x-axis and Z-axis on an asymmetrical core. Indicates the asymmetry of the core. A higher intermediate differential ball will be less stable and will transition more quickly from skid to roll than a ball with lower intermediate differential.

706A Product Notes

Manufacturer's Intent

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 by creating both a brand new core and cover.

Core

The 706A is the first Track ball to feature the brand new Helmet core. This new core design revs up extremely well from the mid-lane to the breakpoint, unleashing the right amount of energy when it encounters friction. The lower intermediate differential compared to previous 700 series ball aids in accomplishing the improved continuation through the pins.

Cover

The cover is what touches the lane, so it is important to use the right cover when targeting the perfect ball motion. The best core design in the world doesn’t do any good unless you have the right cover to take advantage of the core’s strengths. For the 706A, our R&D team developed our new Gen XA (Xtra Angle) cover.

Finish

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 which is the exact same polish we use on our finish line.

Overall

The 706A is sure to be the choice for Track fans when they are looking for a ball that offers easy length with “Pop” at the breakpoint. The combination of our Helmet core and Gen XA cover will match up best with medium oil patterns. When “Xtra” entry angle is a must, mow’ em down with the Track 706A.
