Weight block inside the ball
Modified Tri-Core
Core Type
Basic shape type of the core (Symmetric, Asymmetrical, Pancake)
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.
16lb LB. - 2.51
15lb LB. - 2.50
14lb LB. - 2.49
13lb LB. - 2.53
12lb LB. - 2.60
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.
16lb LB. - 0.033
15lb LB. - 0.038
14lb LB. - 0.045
13lb LB. - 0.055
12lb LB. - 0.039
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.
N/A (Symmetric)

Heat Lava Product Notes

Heat Lava

It's Time To Bring The Heat!

Our famous Heat line is expanding by one. The Heat Lava offers easy length through the front part of the lane, just like the original Heat, with increased motion from the midlane through the pins due to the beefed up QR-7 Pearl coverstock. 

QR -7 Pearl

Our QR series of coverstocks is known for creating a strong footprint to the lane surface.

The QR-7 Pearl is best suited for medium volume oil patterns. The polished finish, combined with the Modified Tri-Core, allows the Heat Lava to be a little more versatile than most balls. This allows it to perform extremely well on both medium and lighter oil patterns. 

Modified Tri-Core

The Modified Tri-Core is a throwback to the core design found in the original Heat. We've matched the RG perfectly to the original, while lowering the flare potential slightly to match up better with today's stronger covers.

The medium RG, combined with the lower differential, provide the perfect core numbers for storing plenty of energy for the backend, while keeping its reaction predictable and consistent shot after shot.
