Manufacturer’s Intent: When we designed the 714C, we were looking for something that would complement our two previous releases, the 706A and 716T. Our R&D team quickly determined that by modifying a successful core from the past and wrapping it with a brand new cover, they would be able to accomplish the task at hand.
Core: The 714C features a core shape that we successfully used in the past in both our 718A and 716T. The original Robot core gave us the big backending 718A while the Modified Robot core gave us our strong rolling 716T, so we knew it was a great core. For this new release, we modified the densities once again to create a strong continuous motion at the backend of the lane. This new version is the Modified Robot 2.0.
Cover: The 714C marks the first time we have solely used one of our new “Continuation” covers. For this new release, we are using our Gen XC (Xtra Continuation). Some of the unique additives found in this new cover were recently combined with additives from our Gen XT cover. The combination of the two, created one of the best hybrid covers ever developed which can be found on our recently introduced 811C/T.
Finish: 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 wide variety of bowling styles. For the 714C, we went with 800/1000/2000/3000 Abralon® as our finish of choice. This finish process allows for easy length on medium to oily patterns while creating the perfect amount of continuation at the back end of the lane.
Overall: The 714C will quickly become the ball of choice for bowlers of all styles looking for a strong continuous motion at the back end of the lane. This will be attributed to the new Modified Robot 2.0 core combined with our brand new Gen XC cover. The 714C - they don’t get much more continuous than this!
