Core
Weight block inside the ball

Core Type
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.
12 LB. - 2.60
13 LB. - 2.53
14 LB. - 2.52
15 LB. - 2.49
16 LB. - 2.50
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.
12 LB. - .039
13 LB. - .055
14 LB. - .052
15 LB. - .053
16 LB. - .047
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.

Lx16 Product Notes

Manufacturer’s Intent

Bowlers with lower rev rates need more help from the bowling ball than anyone, the reason we’ve developed the brand new Lx16. In order to achieve our targeted ball motion, we’ve armed the Lx16 with Track’s latest and greatest in both core and coverstock development.

Cover

Our Track engineers have developed a series of new covers with specific bowling styles in mind. We know that bowlers with the highest rev rates have no trouble getting a ball to turn the corner at the back end of the lane. The opposite is true for those with lower rev rates. We’ve developed our QR (Quick Response) covers specifically for those with lower rev rates or anyone that needs help getting that big move downlane. The Lx16 features our QR-8 Pearl, one of our most aggressive covers.

Finish
The Lx16 utilizes a 800/1000/2000/3000 Abralon® factory finish. This finish will provide moderate traction in the mid-lane while maximizing the strength of the Lx16 at the breakpoint on medium to heavy oil patterns. For those who are truly rev challenged, don’t be afraid to adjust the cover down to with a 2000 grit Abralon® pad.
 
Overall

If we all had a 500 rev rate and could throw the ball 20 mph, there would be no need for high paid engineers in the bowling business. Fortunately for them, the average bowler has a rev rate of 350 rpms or less. Thus the need for balls like the Lx16. Technology has a place in bowling and we’ve put it in the brand new Track Lx16.
