Track Archetype Bowling Ball Features:
The new Track Archetype is Track’s most bold entry into the High-Performance market. This is not like any Track ball you’ve ever seen or thrown. The colors are bold, and the reaction shape is too. The Archetype is a masterpiece in many ways, with the new I-Core 3.0 Slim at the center of it all. The I-Core has been a part of historically significant Track balls, most recently the Paragons and Paradox series. The new I-Core 3.0 Slim has a modified main body, where mass has been removed from the perimeters, making it tall and slim, thus raising the RG and asymmetry. The band around the mid-section remains unchanged from previous models. After testing many cover variations, QR-11 Solid with a 1500 grit finish has been selected for the Archetype. This cover was fantastic on the Paragon Solid and will help the Archetype create a stronger move down-lane due to the I-Core 3.0 Slim core numbers and will work best on heavy oil conditions.

The Track Archetype is a big hooking ball and is an excellent alternative to the Track Paragon – depending on the look you need on the lanes.
Where the Paragon for me is early rolling, strong mid-lane and a strong arc down-lane, the new Archetype is much cleaner through the front and seems to store more energy going through the mids. Once it reaches the end of the pattern, it makes a BIG turn off the spot and covers a ton of boards down-lane, without giving away the strength of forward roll.
If you are looking for a big asymmetric solid to play deeper on medium patterns, so need something to play straight on higher volume that you can trust to react to friction down-lane – then I strongly recommend the Track Archetype.

The Track Archetype stands out even before it hits the lane. The color combination certainly stands apart from anything else. I am usually not a fan of seeing the ball swirl as it rolls down the lane, but once I saw the performance this ball has, I changed my tune. The Archetype is a very strong ball that reads early and has an asymmetry to help it keep flaring while driving down lane. I used mine recently to start the tournament on the difficult 43′ Earl Anthony pattern. It performed very well and helped pay for itself first time out. Should be a good heavy or fresh oil ball.

The Track Archetype is a big hooking asym ball that dominates heavy oil patterns. this ball hooks early but keeps energy through the pocket and for being an aysm core in it, it’s very predictable. a great piece for anyone who struggles with getting the ball to hook especially on heavier patterns.

Ball is GOOD!!! This ball is a must have if you love hooking the entire lane on house shots or are on a longer pattern with higher volume. I usually don’t like playing the entire lane but used it a few times in league and loved watching it going end to end and smashing the pocket! Highly highly highly recommend this bad boy to anyone that likes covering board! Drilled this for my tournament bag but it has found it’s way easily into my league bag!
Archetype is a very strong Asymmetrical solid. Lots of hook. Great step down from the Paragon solid. Works well on heavy to medium volumes of oil. Early rolling and big hook motion. Awesome color mix rolling down lane. Testing miss room out gave me more room then expected from big pieces like this. Still responds well and has good hitting power. Color mix is super cool.
