Track Tempo Bowling Ball Features:
Track released two great solid performance balls recently that handle a wide range of oily conditions and are incredibly versatile, to enhance the Track line-up we bring you the Tempo. The Tempo is a shiny emerald pearl with a symmetric core with great numbers to handle medium to light oil. The loyal Track fans and bowlers looking for a core and cover combination that eases through the heads and mid-lane will find themselves throwing the Tempo as soon as the lanes start to breakdown.

Track’s first two bowling balls at the new plant were both big solids (Proof & Latitude, love them both) so it was nice that their third ball is a low-ish differential core, 0.038 and pearl cover stock. That gives us Track fans a ball to drop down to when the transition is taking hold. Some houses have the “straighter is greater” carry to them and that will fit there too. I drilled mine to have a smooth motion. It does exactly what I was looking for. Very clean through the heads and mid-lane and a smooth rounded shape down lane. I have seen several video’s and talked to a few people that had this ball drilled to do the skid flip shape as well with good success. It seems to be pretty versatile. Work with your Pro Shop and I’m sure they can help to get you the shape you’re looking for. Love the color too. Money Green.$$

This might be one of my favorite Track releases really impressed how clean downlane the Tempo is and not a skid flip reaction for me very smooth and continuous. Going to great when the lanes start to burn up and in a tough tournament shot when you gotta keep your angles straight.

Great symmetrical pearl ball perfect for those lighter volumes and high friction surfaces. Very clean through the front with a good predictable motion off the end of the pattern. Has quickly become my go to ball for the pattern breaks down

The Tempo is a great symmetrical pearl ball perfect for those low volumes and high friction surfaces. This ball will help you get down the lane and still provide a lot of back end! This will def be a ball you go to when the lanes start to break down. A must in your bag. Great color too!

The Track Tempo is the latest mid-range pearl ball and I am very pleased with its versatility and ability to control the backend, but still go through the pins with force.
My Tempo is drilled 80×3.75×30 so it is laid out with a little flip, but not maxxed. I think the first inclination is to compare this to the Track Heat from several years back. The Tempo is earlier to respond to friction for sure in comparison, but still stores the energy you’d expect from the Heat. I can see this both provide control to the higher rev bowler as well as some strength and motion for the up-the-board league bowler as well.
I will be using my Tempo for both straight and angular play, both in league and sport shots. I recommend this to be something you must-have in your arsenal for a variety of low-medium oil needs.

As a high rev player, I tend to like bowling balls that are in the medium pearl symmetric range. Add the lower differential to the Tempo and its the perfect ball for me later in blocks or after the lanes transition. This ball allows me to play closer to the friction and keep my angles closed for optimal carry. If I were to compare it to something in the Brunswick family it would be the Hero and the Allure. All 3 balls allow me to keep my angles square to the pocket, but the Tempo gives me about a foot more length and more pop on the backend

Mine is set up at 45 x4.5 x 40
Recently used it in the last PBA Reginal that we had out here in the West. Mostly everyone was throwing Urethane for most of the day. I was able to keep my lines straight and up the boards without the big over under reaction that resin can do one some of the patterns. For me, It was clean through the heads and with a Heavy Roll and continuous through the pin deck. It saved me the entire way after the cashers round. You will not be disappointed on the medium to drier condition. Track hit a Home Run on this one. 😊

Amazing ball for the price. As a shiny low end ball, I was somewhat afraid this ball would be very skid snappy and often roll out down lane. I am extremely happy to say that it is not and it is amazing. The ball has a smooth midlane transition even on torched lanes. It picks up a great roll and you can see the ball making it’s move down lane. The ball tends to have a little bit rollier of a look to it as it gets downlane which makes it an easy ball to read.
I drilled mine pin up. The one thing I may do is put some more surface on the ball to see if work a little better on the high volume patterns.
There’s not much else I can say other than I am extremely pleased I went with the Track Tempo as my low end ball.

If you’re looking for a good dry lanes ball or a great ball to use on lanes that are burned up this is the ball for you. I drilled mine 75×3.5×20. With this layout I’m able to get the ball down the lane with no early hook and great continuation motion on the backend.
