Paradox Black
« on: November 10, 2017, 03:32:20 PM »
Ball NPS Score: 100.00
Track is reintroducing the Track Paradox but in black this time around. The Track Paradox Black is aggressive in the front part of the lane, the mid-lane, and the backend on heavy oil conditions making this bowling ball a truly unexplainable paradox. This ball uses the i-Core 2.0 to create a big flare potential and the QR-9 Hybrid coverstock helps create major pin action by responding to lane friction quickly.

Color: Black/Smoke Pearl
Coverstock: QR-9 Hybrid
Core: i-Core 2.0 (Dual Density)
Finish: 500/2000 Abralon
RG: 2.48 (15# ball)
Differential: .057 (15# ball)
Reaction: Strong Continuous Hook
Recommended Lane Condition: Heavy Oil

Drilled the Paradox Black with my benchmark drilling and will use as the first ball out of the bag on fresh conditions.  This is my favorite ball in the bag right now, it reads the mids very well and the carry is incredible.  I’ve shot 300 and 800 with this one in the first month of using it.  I highly recommend getting one of these for your arsenal.

Likes: Very strong and early rolling

Dislikes: Needs oil

As a huge fan of the original blue Paradox, I was very excited to try this when it got announced.  This ball is fantastic.  I do notice though that if you are comparing it to the blue, the black seems to be a bit earlier rolling for me.  Definitely a lot more shape overall than my blue one had.  Ball has 0 quit on the backend's and goes through the pins with ease.

I put a 45x3.5x35 layout on my Paradox Black.  This ball is definitely as advertised...early and strong. This ball rolls sooner than both my Verdict and Kinetic Ruby and instantly became the strongest ball in my bag.  This ball would be ideal on any type of longer pattern for any type of player.  Players with higher ball speed and a heavier roll should love this ball.  A must have for all tournament players.

Paradox Black (Box Surface) – Pin above the bridge CG to the right parallel to the middle of my ring finger MB about an inch from the middle of my thumb. Positive Axis Point 4 3/8 right 1/2 up.

House Shot Patterns Fresh and Broken Down
Like the original Paradox the black doesn’t leave any doubt to the readability I have five different layouts on the various Paradox series and they all roll extremely well.  If you passed up on the original the Paradox Black will forgive you for passing on the predecessor.  I haven’t changed the surface yet I wanted to see how long I can go with the box surface and clean it about every 9 to 15 games just to do something different.  The first few games I had to remember how smooth the Paradox series is, after a few more games now I can see that shape starting to change in a great way for me.  Predictable, smooth, and an overall good addition to any bowling arsenal you cannot go wrong with having the Paradox Black.
When you get a chance please check out the track recommendation tool however before doing so I will strongly suggest you go to your local pro shop and ask for assistance with getting your Rev Rate, Tilt, Axis Rotation and Ball Speed.
