Additional product information:

Our famous Heat line is expanding by one. The Heat Lava offers easy length through the front part of the lane, just like the original Heat, with increased motion from the midlane through the pins due to the beefed up QR-7 Pearl coverstock.

Our QR series of coverstocks is known for creating a strong footprint to the lane surface. The QR-7 Pearl is best suited for medium volume oil patterns. The polished finish, combined with the Modified Tri-Core, allows the Heat Lava to be a little more versatile than most balls. This allows it to perform extremely well on both medium and lighter oil patterns.

The Modified Tri-Core is a throwback to the core design found in the original Heat. We’ve matched the RG perfectly to the original, while lowering the flare potential slightly to match up better with today’s stronger covers. The medium RG, combined with the lower differential, provide the perfect core numbers for storing plenty of energy for the backend, while keeping its reaction predictable and consistent shot after shot.

    Track Heat Lava

    Posted by Andrew Jensen on Aug 7th 2019

    This is one of my favorites in the line of Heat balls. It picks up the middle of the lane better than the previous releases in my opinion. Because of that I find it easier to use this ball in my everyday use during league and it finds a great spot in my bag for the medium to medium heavy sport conditions. Don't be afraid to hit this ball with a little surface to help see more shape on the lanes. It loves its back scratched and you'll see this ball become a whole different animal with anywhere between 1000 grit abralon to a 4000 grit abralon. This ball will be great for those that like to play with speed down and in and those players that can move the ball from left to right.

    Great addition to the Heat line

    Posted by Jim Petzel on Jul 22nd 2019

    The Heat Lava reminds me of a stronger version of the Heat. It is very clean through the fronts, very smooth reaction overall but stronger through the pins than the Heat. With me being more speed dominant and bowling on all sport patterns, I don't get to use MP pearls very often. I would use the Heat Lava on very burnt lanes in tournaments with long formats. Bowlers with high rev rate will love how clean and smooth this ball rolls for them.

    This Ball is Sneaky Good

    Posted by Dave Han on Jul 6th 2019

    The Track Lava Heat is a ball motion I was missing in my bag, and I think is going to get a lot of play on a variety of patterns.

    The Lava Heat is the perfect marriage, combining the QR-7 pearl coverstock used in the Cyborg Pearl with the Heat core. This creates a ball motion that is not as angular as something like the Cyborg Pearl, but has more teeth than any of the polished balls in the Heat series (Heat, Ultra Heat). For me, I see a motion that is going to be valuable on house shots and sport shots in the 36-40’ range or in transition.

    The Heat Xtreme is one of my ATF balls, and I have a feeling that the Lava Heat is going to follow right alongside.

    Heat Lava

    The new Heat Lava is a great addition to the Mid Performance Line from Track, This ball is clean through the fronts and smooth off the end of the pattern, but still retains power to get through the pins, if you are looking for a ball to help control a pattern this ball will do just that!
