High track vs. Low track

Does it really matter where the track on the ball is? I know you need the track in order to figure out your PAP but what if your track changes? Today when I was bowling I was trying to stay under the ball longer and as a result I noticed that my track was much higher than normal. I really didn't notice a big reaction diffrence between the high track and the lower track so my question is does track make a differnence in ball reaction?

You should definitely see a difference in ball reaction and/or pin carry, on a specific condition, with a specific ball you're using and/or a specific line you're playing. One should work better than the other.

Higher tilt (generally a lower track) causes more skid and less jumpy transitions. As Buzzsaw said, you should definitely see a difference in reaction.

Re: High track vs. Low track

Ok so that is why I see so much skid from my balls when I have a lower track? It seems like when I roll the ball that has a higher track I get more hook. Is it safe to say that coming over the side of the ball will give me a lower track?

Yes, that is safe to say.

Yes. Tilt is caused by the rotation of the wrist.

You are probably getting more hook with a higher track (most likely low tilt) because:
1. The ball is starting earlier, and therefore has more time to hook
2. You are releasing it better and putting more revs on the ball

Re: High track vs. Low track

Ok so now I have something to look for on the ball that will tell me that I am releasing the ball better. Like I said when my ball has a high track on it I normally have better games then when I have a lower track. I have a new ball that I was going to have drilled up but I may wait now until I can get my release where I would like it to be and then go back and have my PAP measured again.
