Basic shape type of the core (Symmetric, Asymmetrical, Pancake)
Asymmetrical
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.

13 LB. - 2.53
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.

706C/A Product Notes

Manufacturer's Intent

Based the success of our previously launched 706A, we wanted to offer a similar type of ball motion that would be a touch stronger in the middle part of the lane. What better way to accomplish this than to bring our hybrid technology from the 811C/T to our 7 Series.

Core

Based on our target being something similar to the 706A with a touch more mid-lane, we knew we needed to stick with our Helmet core. The medium Rg and high differential of this core design is both driller-and bowler-friendly meaning it rolls great no matter what.

Cover

The 706C/A features our brand new Gen X C/A Hybrid cover. The Gen X C/A Hybrid takes hybrid technology one step further by combining the perfect blend of our Gen XC (Xtra Continuation) and Gen XA (Xtra Angle) covers. Both of these covers use their own unique additives, which provide two distinctly different types of ball motion. By combining these additives, we have created a cover that is truly special.

Finish

The final step to complete the ball development process is the finish. Having the right finish allows for the perfect combination of core and cover to shine for a wider variety of bowling styles. For the 706C/A, we went with 500 Abralon® / 1500 AbranetTM Soft polished w/PowerhouseTM Factory Finish Polish. This finish process allowed the 706C/A to glide through the oil making a strong read of both the mid-lane and back end. 

Overall

The 706C/A is specifically designed to create the strong mid-lane and back end reaction bowlers desire. The factory finish will match up the best with medium to oily lanes and be ideal for those of average ball speed and rev rate. With the 706C/A, we’ve outsmarted the competition again!
