Track’s newest high-performance ball, the Paradox, is aggressive in the heads, the midlane, and the backend, making it the most powerful Track ball ever created for heavy oil lane conditions. With a re-engineered multi-density 2.0 version of the I-Core, Paradox is designed with a 2.48 radius of gyration, a .057 differential, and a strong .015 intermediate differential. All of this means the Paradox has the strongest engine in the Track lineup, and that means more hook. Layered with a QR-9 hybrid reactive cover finished off at 2000 grit Abralon, Paradox eats through oil in the front of the lane, and has superior traction in the backend.
Our first layout is a strong 4 ½” pin down with the mass bias on the vertical axis line for this bowler. Left at box condition, our intent was to create a strong mid-lane transitioning shape that showed continuous backend movement.
Our medium to higher revolution player took this Paradox to a heavy oiled house lane condition, and the Track Paradox was one of the strongest balls we’ve seen in years! The I-core shape revs easily off of our bowler’s hand, and picks up an even higher revolution rate as it transitions from mid-lane to backend. This heavy oil lane pattern was no match for the 2000 grit sanded QR-9 cover. The Paradox has Track’s strongest coverstock chemistry with the teeth to grab on anything. This pin down layout lets our bowler play power with predictability. The pin down 4 ½” version never showed “skid/flip” shape, but instead gave us plenty of motion to strike while being easy to control down lane.
Our other layout in the Track Paradox is the more common pin up drilling, with a 70 x 5 ½” x 45 layout. With this layout, we also used a weight hole placement on the bowler’s vertical axis line. With the pin up placement, we expect better length and quicker transition at the break point, and that’s exactly what the Paradox gave our bowler.
What stands out with the pin up Paradox is just how quick it responds to the friction down lane. You can see that the ball wants to glide to the breakpoint more easily, with less friction in the front of the lane. But once it picks up the end of the lane pattern, this pin up drilling on the Paradox throws it sideways at the pin deck. Our bowler saw extreme length from a 2000 grit sanded ball with this layout, and more backend than any other ball in the Track lineup. Our bowler moved left to see how much room the Paradox would give. Then he moved again. The Paradox simply came from everywhere on the lane. This is the Track ball of the year to own!
