Track 505C2 Bowling Ball
Our goal with this new release was to make an even better version of the original 505C. We tried several different options but settled on making one minor tweak and updating the cover to match up better with today’s bowling environment.
We kept the original Kinetic core shape due to it’s past successes. We changed the core material which allowed us to slightly raise the RG and lower the overall differential. The core modification gives the new 505C2 more push through the front part of the lane thus storing more energy for the back end of the lane.
Updating the cover was the most important change we made with the 505C2. Our Gen MC (Moderate Continuation) coverstock creates less friction in the oil compared to the cover we used on the original 505C.
The final step that completes the ball development process is the finish. Having the right finish allows for the perfect combination of core and cover to shine for a wider variety of bowling styles. For the 505C2, we went with 800/1000/2000 Abralon® polished w/PowerhouseTM Factory Finish Polish. This finish process allowed the 505C2 to glide through the front part of the lane, producing the continuation we were looking for at the back end.
The 505C2 is ideal for medium to dry lane conditions. The combination of our highly successful Kinetic core and our Gen MC cover make this a must have for league and tournament bowlers alike. Every bowler has that “go to” ball. This will be your “go to” ball.

This was my first 500 series ball and I have to say I didn't know what I was missing out on. I drilled this ball pin above my bridge and kicked the mass bias out an inch from my thumb w/ a weight hole, what i ended up getting OOB was a very clean reaction through the fronts similar to the 706A and 706T. Mid-lane I saw a lot of control and exiting the pattern with a very strong turn. I did end up knocking the surface off the OOB finish with a 2000 pad and re-polishing it which helped me with the ball not jumping off the spot too quick and giving it a smooth reaction. Last night I shot 278, 300, 280 for 858 and my second 800 this month. I would highly recommend getting this ball and adding it to the track collection in your bag.
