Track Paragon Bowling Ball Features:
The Paragon takes the Paradox performance to the next level with the updated I-Core 3.0, which features a similar dual-density design as the I-Core 2.0. The QR-11 Solid coverstock is our strongest, allowing the Paragon to out hook any previous Paradox. The three-color blue combination adds a familiar look as it pays tribute to the original Paradox.
The Paragon uses DynamiCore – the industry leading innovation in outer core technology developed by Brunswick Bowling Products. This leap in bowling ball technology is a more durable outer material that yields less compression upon impact increasing hitting power and creating an undeniable difference in sound and pin carry.
DURABILITY OPTIMIZATION TECHNOLOGY
The Paragon uses patent-pending Durability Optimization Technology (DOT) which represents a revolutionary change in the way bowling balls are manufactured. Developed by Brunswick engineers with one goal in mind – to significantly reduce cracking in performance bowling balls.

The Paradox line was one of my favorites from Track, so I was beyond excited for the line to continue with the Paragon. Simply put, this ball is a monster. I have had 2 practice sessions with this ball and there is no part of the lanes it will not hook from. This shape is strong throughout the entire lane with plenty of pop left for the backend. In my house it is tough to get the corners out if you play in the oil, but the Paragon has been tremendous at recovering from those spots. I can’t wait to throw this ball some more and maybe drill a pin down one! The layout on mine is my traditional pin up layout (50×5”x45)

The Track Paragon is as advertised – a continuation of the Paradox legacy. Overall, a VERY strong ball!
My Paragon was drilled 70×3.75×20, which was intended to maximize the backend reaction. What I got was a high-end ball that needs a lot of oil to maximize its ability. The layout probably took a little away from the mid-lane strength, but it still transitions pretty hard in the mids. Heavy roll in the backend and great continuation, as expected.
For league, I think I would have to bring the surface up to 3000 or 4000, as it simply wants to hook. However, for sport patterns, the Paragon is going to be the 1st ball out of my bag for volume and longer patterns.

You want hook? This ball hooks. The Track Paragon in the biggest footprint ball I have seen from the Track line. I have only had the opportunity to throw it on house shots but you can see how it eats up the oil. My previous big ball is the Radical Max Results and this was overall more by about 2-3 boards with my feet. It picks up early but didn’t seen to burn out down lane. It continued through the pins well. I look forward to getting it on some longer patterns and see how she does.
The wait is over! The Paragon is coming to you. It will hook more and hit harder than the old Paradox line up.
On house shots, it’s just too much ball after a game or game and a half. Tried some surface adjustments and liked best at 500/2000.
Definitely a ball for heavier/longer oil patterns.

If you’re looking for the strongest ball on the market this is the ball for you. The Paragon hooks 2 to 4 boards more than the Obsession and Maximum Results. This will be the ball that you’re going to go to on your longer heavier oil patterns. I drilled mine 50×5.5×40.
Because of the strength this ball it reads early and keeps on going.
The Paragon has a definite WOW factor! I have used it in many past tournaments and have been very successful. This ball picks up in the oil and continues through the pin deck extremely well. The Paragon uses DynamiCore. It is a more durable outer material that yields less compression upon impact increasing hitting power and creating an undeniable difference in sound and pin carry.

Track Paragon – Next Level Hook
I have thrown many different balls which were very strong. I believe this is the strongest ball I have ever thrown with incredible ball continuation through the pins. This ball flat out HOOKS! I drilled this ball for oily lane conditions and it has by far out performed my expectations by a wide margin. This is the first Track ball I have thrown in many years and I am VERY impressed with this ball. My ball was drilled pin down to ensure early movement on oily lanes, without changing the surface of the ball. The ball provides incredible ball continuation without losing any energy or hitting power at all. It picks up early and continues through the pins extremely well. This ball is so strong, you may need to alter the ball surface depending on your bowling center and how the lanes are oiled. This ball is the ABSOLUTE BEST for heavy oil and longer oil patterns. This ball is an ABSOLUTE MUST in your bag

Absolute beast! Out of the box with surface, it ended up being to early and strong for my house pattern. I ended up throwing just a smidge of polish on it, to almost mimic lane shine, and it a huge difference. I now could throw it anywhere I wanted. Typically with balls like this, I have once choice. Get really far left and slow roll to the breakpoint. With the small amount of polish added, I could now play right, in front of me, and then follow the breakdown left. ! A gem! Cant wait to drill another! Don’t be afraid to change surface on this bad boy, it’ll surprise you !

Track took everything everyone loved about the original paradox and updated it then named it Paragon. I loved the og paradox so I couldn’t wait for this ball to come out. I drilled mine 55x5x30 which is my standard layout. Out of the box this thing is a hook monster. I helped mine out with 3k by hand to round it out a little and the more oil it soaks up the better it gets. I have thrown this ball on several different patterns and it seems to just always find its way into play. If your needing to replace your current big solid asym do yourself a favor and consider the paragon you will not be disappointed.

This ball hooks when none of my other equipment does. It is definitely my strongest overall ball. Despite it being a monster super hooker, it still has great usability.
It works especially well for me on house shots, where there is a lot of head volume, but I also have had good success with it on long patterns like Badger.
I think this is the perfect type of ball for speed dominant players, but rev dominant players should be able to find plenty of conditions to use this ball as well.
Mathew Jones –
Paragon is a hook monster. This ball will be great for any patterns that are medium to heavy. I have thrown this ball on multiple patterns with multiple angles and it doesn’t disappoint. This is a must have in anyone’s bad that is a competitive bowler. This ball is very versatile for how strong it is. Dont sleep on this one
The Paradox was one of my favorite Track balls of all time. I couldn’t wait to drill the Paragon and this ball will hook!! The Paragon hooks much earlier and more overall than the Paradox and is a great ball on heavy oil or longer patterns. You will be pleasantly surprised how much this ball hooks. I drilled my Paragon with the same layout as my original Paradox and it’s 4-5 boards stronger overall for me.

Oil, this ball needs oil. The Paragon hooks more than any ball I have rolled to date. My previous oiler was the Track Strata, and this ball out hooked it. The I-Core 3.0 is strong and continuous, just like it’s predecessor, the I-Core 2.0 in the blue Paradox. In keeping with the Paradox lineage, the continuation is the key. This ball doesn’t quit. The house shot in my center is typically a little on the heavy oil side, but this ball eats it up and usually only makes it a game and a half before I am using the whole lane to get to the pocket. On heavier patterns, this ball will help keep you rolling through the pins. The Paragon takes surface changes very well and the drill anywhere technology lets you get the perfect angles without compromise.
Had this ball drilled for the USBC Open championships and for PBA events. This ball does not disappoint its drilled 45 x 5.5 x 35 and it just drives through the pins with power. Reads in the oil and still has energy. This ball is a must have for tournaments.

The Paragon is not just another hook monster HP ball release. The Paragon is a much more usable over a wide range of conditions HP ball. This ball has excelled at a variety of of angles for me, straight up all the way to hooking the lane. Very versatile ball, it does however need some head oil to get it down the lane.
Tommy Parker III –
Strong Ball! I drilled this bad boy for heavy oil conditions and with the factory finish it is the only way I can use it. If it is too strong and you want to use on a house shot, simply shine it up and it will be a great house shot ball! HIGHLY recommend for any bowler.
Scott Crawford –
If you liked the Paradox line then you will love the Pragaon. The Paragon is definitely my go-to ball at the top end of my bag for hook potential now. It’s got the same core that made the Paradox ball so great and a super strong solid cover that’s at 1500 box finish and absolutely can dig in heavier oil. Depending on your speed and rev rate this is probably not going to be used on lighter oil, but it should be the first out of the bag on fresh shots with good volume and especially on sport patterns with heavy oil. Very impressed with the energy retention and back-end hook for a ball that starts to hook sooner. I drilled this one 65×3.5×25 and love the reaction.
