Symmetrical
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. - 2.60
13 LB. - 2.53
12 LB. - 2.60
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.

Tour X Product Notes

Manufacturer’s Intent

With every new Track release, our R&D department spends countless hours assuring the quality and performance of our product. The Tour X is no different. The intent behind the development of the Tour X was to create a bowling ball that matched up extremely well on tougher lane conditions typically found in tournaments and the PBA Tour.

Core

To achieve the desired performance, we started with our poplular DNA core. This symmetric core design offers a high radius of gyration combined with an equally high overall differential. This symmetric design offers more predictability while the higher differential provides for a wider variety of drilling options.

Cover

For this release, we our using our new Luxury DR-4 Pearl coverstock. The formula for this cover uses a higher grade of resin compared to any of our previous releases. This higher grade of resin creates more vibrant colors as well as improved performance at the back end of the lane.

Finish

The Tour X is finished with 500/800/1000/2000 Abralon® and polished with our Powerhouse Factory Finish. This finish will provide smooth length through the front part of the lane while maintaining plenty of motion for the back end. This will be ideal on tougher patterns that have been broken down.

Overall

When bowling on tougher oil patterns, bowlers tend to lean towards a bowling ball that uses a symmetrical core design. The reason for this is symmetrical cores allow the bowler’s release to have more influence on reaction of the ball. That’s why we are combining our most successful symmetric core in recent years, the DNA core, with our Luxury DR-4 Pearl cover.

When the lanes get tough, smart bowlers get Tour X!
