Lane Condition
Length and/or amount of oil on the lane
Heavy Oil
Color of the ball
Blue/Blue Pearl/Light Blue
Available weights
12-16 Lbs. LBS
Weight block inside the ball
I-Core 2.0 (Dual Density)
Radius of Gyration: measurement related to weight distribution of the core. This affects how quickly a ball will get in to a roll. A ball with a higher RG will roll later. A ball with lower RG will roll sooner.
16 LB. - 2.49
15 LB. - 2.48
14 LB. - 2.52
13 LB. - 2.53
12 LB. - 2.60
Difference between the RG of the core's x-axis and y-axis. Indicates track flare potential and stability. A higher differential means more flare potential and less stabilty. A low differential ball will be more stable and have less flare potential.
16 LB. - .049
15 LB. - .057
14 LB. - .055
13 LB. - .055
12 LB. - .039
Intermediate Differential 
Difference between the RG of the core's x-axis and Z-axis on an asymmetrical core. Indicates the asymmetry of the core. A higher intermediate differential ball will be less stable and will transition more quickly from skid to roll than a ball with lower intermediate differential.

Paradox Product Notes

Paradox - Available 8/18/2015

A bowling ball is generally either very aggressive in the front part of the lane, mid-lane, or back end. For a ball to be able to do all three is rarely seen. In the bowling world, this is considered a Paradox. Our new high performance creation offers unexplainable hook and power on the heaviest of oil patterns. Some things are just better left unexplained. 

i-core 2.0

The i-Core 2.0 is an updated version of the original i-Core. We’ve modified the densities of the inner core to tweak the overall performance of the Paradox. The most noticeable difference is in the overall flare potential, which has been increased by over 1”.

QR-9 Hybrid

Our new QR-9 Hybrid cover creates the quickest response to friction of any current Track veneer. This enables the Paradox to create unexplainable pin action.
