Track Kinetic Black Ice Bowling Ball Features:
The Kinetic line continues as a reliable staple in the Track Bowling line-up. Kinetic Platinum was clean and strong and is still in many bags. With the new Kinetic Black Ice, Track achieved even more change of direction by moving to their Quick Response cover from the Delayed Response found on the Kinetic Platinum. The Shuttle core remains the same and is a favorite for its low asymmetry, bridging the gap between symmetric and asymmetric cores.

Here’s a couple of quick hitters with the upcoming release from Track, the Kinetic Black Ice! The Quick Response cover, matched with the lower diff Shuttle core, bridge the gap between the world of symmetrics and asymmetrics perfectly for me.
I was able to shoot 746 my first three game set with this beast, it is a perfect fit between my Hammer 3D-Offset and the Radical Bigfoot. You can pre-order yours NOW from Bowler Builders Pro Shops, the WWRD is April 29th! Winter may be over, but you always gotta watch out for black ice!

The Track Kinetic Black Ice is another pearl ball in the Kinetic line but does not roll like the Kinetic Platinum at all. In my opinion, I would compare the ball roll more to my favorite ball in the Kinetic line, the Emerald.
Mine was drilled 70×3.75×20, which is intended to maximize the skid-flip intention of the ball. However, in side-by-side comparison to the Black Widow Ghost, I found the Black Ice to pick up much earlier in the mid-lane with the OOB finish, and yet not sacrifice the backend motion I was looking for.
There’s been a lot of buzz about this ball – and I foresee it doing very well for house shots and on medium sport patterns where you want something polished with a bit more grab in the mids. I highly recommend the Black Ice for your league and tournament bags.

Let me start by saying I LOVE the kinetic line. The black ice is no exception. I drilled mine 55x5x30 and have tried it on a variety of patterns. It’s been in play on everything, I can get right and stay behind the ball or jump to 5th arrow and this ball just keeps putting in work. If you liked the kinetic lines of past or want something with more down lane reaction than the platinum grab a black ice today

The Track Kinetic Black Ice is another nice addition to the Kinetic line. It has the same time proven Shuttle core, but they have added a faster response pearl coverstock. I compared it to my Kinetic Platinum from last year and it read the lane a few feet earlier and is a bit stronger down lane. Overall, I would call it a good 4 boards stronger with my feet and 2 at the arrows. Very nice add.

Given the success of the platinum, this new black ice takes it up a couple levels in terms of overall strength, stronger pearlized cover helps this ball read the middle part of the lane earlier but still creates a very fast response to friction. I can for sure say that for not just the track line, but for the entire Brunswick lineup, this is in my opinion, is the fastest response to friction ball we have. When you need to move left and throw it at a spot, this ball will not have any problems making it back!

Featuring the same great shuttle core with a stronger pearl cover the kinetic black ice has become the first ball out of my bag. It’s been in play on just about everything I’ve bowled on from house to sport patterns. I’ve been able to square up and chase left without losing any performance

Can you say bailout ball? When the lanes start to burn up, I have zero hesitation to pull this ball out when I’m struggling to get the ball to skate through the front part the lane. There is tremendous hitting power on the ball too. Mine has a 5.25 inch pin up. I gravitate towards using the ball on low to medium length and volume patterns. It goes with me to almost every event. This is another ball I highly suggest to add to your arsenal along with the Track Stealth. They pair well together.

The Track Kinetic Black Ice is a great tournament ball on your medium length and medium oil patterns. Where you cannot find balance with any other ball, lots of over/under, throw a little surface on the ball and it’ll shape perfectly for you! This may be a good house shot ball to start with for you.
