Cause some Chronic Paranoia on the lanes with this versatile ball from Motiv. The Chronic Paranoia takes the dual density Oblivion core and pairs it with the Agitator Solid Reactive coverstock that is finished with a 4000 grit LSS. This combination gives the bowler the ability to strike from various angles on a range of medium oil patterns. This medium angular bowling ball not only works on a variety of patterns but offers great ball motion for a variety of bowlers.
The new chronic madness is a new benchmark style ball that will work on many conditions and with many styles. The chronic madness is controllable in the midlane yet angular through the pin deck giving this ball great pin carry. For me, this ball reads the body of the lane about 3 feet sooner and is much smoother compared to the original paranoia. This ball will give a little more pop on the backend then the Forza GT but is still very continuous as well. The best part about this ball is how it blends the lane out and significantly reduces the wet/dry ball reaction. For those, who bowl on those types of conditions or who need a ball that's a little more controllable then the paranoia, will really love this ball.
This release is very simple...it's a benchmark ball and it's designed to be used on all but extreme conditions. The Chronic Paranoia is meant for many scenarios:
1) Angular balls are responding too fast to friction, or
2) Smooth balls are responding too slow to friction, or
3) Light to light/medium oil balls are too weak, or
4) Heavy oil to medium/heavy oil balls are too strong
The Chronic Paranoia is going to be an asset whether you're bowling on a house pattern to the most difficult of patterns. I've found that the Chronic Paranoia is very user friendly when it comes to surface alterations. I personally really like to stick with a particular surface on a ball once it is successful. However, I've actually liked the Chronic Paranoia out of the box, adding additional surface and even polishing it thus far. This is something crucial in a successful benchmark ball. I've always had MOTIV's benchmark ball in my bag, from the Sigma Sting to the Forza Redline, I have had great success with these balls. I feel the Chronic Paranoia is going to replace those very well, being stronger in the oil than it's predecessors in order to conquer modern day oil.

Wow.. What can I say – for anyone who knows me they know the Yellow ball (Forza Redline) is always difficult to pry from my hand. For some reason that ball has always had everything I need from a benchmark ball and a ball that just seems to knock down the pins when I need them the most. I never thought I could replace it. Well along comes the new Chronic Paranoia and just like that – not only a replacement but an upgrade as well.
The Chronic Paranoia features the wildly innovative Oblivion core and new Agitator™ Solid Reactive cover stock, delivering impressive ball motion. This medium oil monster should be the first ball out of your bag each week and will provide you with many options on many different types of lane patterns. Rev dominant players will be able to open up the lane while speed dominant and straighter players will notice the length and stronger delayed hook and continuation the Chronic Paranoia brings.
Sometimes you find a ball that fits in many instances. This is a ball that you may not want to ever put down because of its versatility. Its consistency off the spot down lane and ability to still read the friction off the back of the pattern when playing deeper angles makes this one a must have and always the first ball out of your bag! Motiv has done it again!
