As suggested by its name, the Paradox V is the fifth Paradox release from Track. This time, the I-Core 2.0 weight block from all the previous Paradox releases is surrounded by the Prime Pearl coverstock that was introduced recently on the Precision. The Paradox V comes out of the box finished with 500/1000 Abralon and Powerhouse Factory Finish Polish, which helps to give it more length than the Paradox Black and Tactix, while being just a tad earlier than the Precision. The asymmetrical I-Core 2.0 weight block remains unchanged from the previous Paradox releases. This low RG designs helps the Paradox V rev up quickly enough to keep it from sliding too far down the lane, and its large differential allows it to get back from nearly anywhere to the pocket. This ball’s pairing of cover and core provides a strong midlane read and a strong move off the breakpoint on medium oil patterns.
TRACK PARADOX V
This Paradox is the fifth iteration of the Paradox line, thus Paradox V (5). Track wanted to take the strongest pearl coverstock they currently have and wrap it around their most popular core to complement the Paradox Black on medium to heavy oil conditions.
The i-Core 2.0 is an updated version of the original i-Core. Track modified the densities of the inner core to tweak the overall performance. The most noticeable difference is in the overall flare potential, which has been increased by over 1”.
Track’s new Prime coverstock advances the technology started in the original Paradox with the QR series. This new technology creates a more consistent and uniform grip on the lane compared to its predecessor. The Prime cover has already proven itself a winner as it was first used in a hybrid version on the Alias. This new Pearl version allows the Paradox V to push further down the lane compared to the Alias and give bowlers a stronger change of direction at the breakpoint.
