Tour X Solid 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 Solid is no different. The intent behind the development of the Tour X Solid was to design a ball to compliment our already successful Tour X. As with the Tour X, this new solid version will perform the best on tougher lane conditions. 

CORE

When designing a new ball around a previous product, starting with the same core design ensures your ability to be successful. By using the DNA core, the Tour X Solid will give the user a similar ball reaction throughout the lane. 

COVER

For the cover, we have chosen a solid version of the cover used on the Tour X. Our DR-4 Solid veneer allows the Tour X Solid to read the mid-lane stronger than its pearl counterpart. 

FINISH

The Tour X Solid comes from the factory with a 500/3000 Abralon finish which is polished with our Powerhouse Factory Finish Polish. The finish process enables the Tour X Solid to match up best with medium to slightly drier patterns. 

OVERALL

When bowling on tougher oil patterns, bowlers tend to lean towards a bowling ball that uses a symmetrical core design. To help satisfy this need, we have developed our Tour series of bowling balls. The Tour X was perfect for creating lots of length with its pearl finish. The new Tour X Solid is the perfect compliment to the Tour X. The change to a solid veneer, while using our proven DNA core design, provides a touch stronger reaction in the mid-lane, therefore allowing it to handle a bit more oil as well.

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