The Track Paradox V is the fifth bowling ball in the Paradox line. This version takes the Prime Pearl coverstock and pairs it with the i-Core 2.0 core. The coverstock offers a consistent and uniform grip on the lane while pushing down the lane with a strong change of direction at the breakpoint. The dual density core proved its success in the predesessor ball. Track took their strongest pearl coverstock and covered their most popular core to offer a great ball for medium to heavy oil conditions.
I bought this ball about a month ago and the ball works great. I bowl in a scratch league and last night I shot a 794 with a 300 as my last game. With the transition of bowlers using urethane I moved a total of 5 boards from start to finish. This ball rolls through the front and saves everything for backend. Thinking about getting another and put a different drilling on it. This ball is great along side my Heat, Mako, Kinetic, and Alias
What great shelf appeal! This ball certainly catches your eye!
Not only does it look great, but it rolls great, too! I went with a smoother, pin-down layout to control the backend reaction. The Dual Angle Layout numbers are 55 x 4 1/2" x 80. This ball stores plenty of energy through the front part of the lane, but doesn't overreact as it exits the pattern. I am truly impressed!
If you're looking for a great compliment to the Paradox Black, look no further! This ball creates PLENTY of backend reaction!
The most backend out of all of the Paradox line, and it's beautiful. The Paradox V is very clean through the fronts with an explosive reaction off the end of the pattern. This has become my favorite ball. The pin carry the ball has is phenominal. Even on flush pocket shots the pins are moving left and right. The Paradox V has great recovery so deep inside angles are no problem. Pick the Paradox V at a pro shop near you.
I have really liked the Paradox line. My favorite of the line is the Trilogy and now the Paradox V. This ball is clean through the front part of the lane and strong at the break point. It drives hard through the pins. Definitely a smoother rolling ball and gets down the lane further than the Paradox Black with the same back-end strength. I use this ball A LOT.
TRACK - PARADOX V
Layout: 50 x 5 ¼ x 75
Balance Hole: N/A
The Paradox V is the 5th bowling ball in a very successful Paradox line. The updated I-Core 2.0 allows for more flare potential, while the Prime Pearl coverstock gets the ball down the lane very easily. If you needed a cleaner version of the Paradox Black, you want to look into the Paradox V.
For me, the Paradox V is a great ball for higher friction lane surfaces. I mainly use this ball on fresh lane conditions when I need some more length through the pattern. It gives me a cleaner motion than my Paradox Black, yet still has that controllable motion down the lane. I also found this ball great for wet/dry conditions as it is strong enough to blend out the over/under reaction. This ball also goes through the pins very well! Makes me feel like my rev-rate is higher than it is!

I drilled this ball up last week and was surprised in a good way at how much it hooked off the end off the oil pattern. I would say it has a few more boards coverage than the Rhodman Pearl by Hammer but reacts different. The Rhodman is very smooth while the Track Paradox V reacts very strong to friction and goes through the pin deck very hard. The Paradox core & Prime Pear cover seem to be a great combo. Both balls will be mainstays in my tournament bag.
Paradox V - Various sport and house patterns
Positive Axis Point 4 3/8 right 1/2 up.
I didn't' change the box surface for the V. I wanted to see its true motion out of the box. I drilled this ball 60x5 1/4x65 (pin below the bridge of the fingers CG swung out a little), this is a smooth layout for me and also gives me the controlled reaction I would want to see from a higher end ball on medium to lighter oil conditions. On the house shot I was able to play farther right when the lanes started to break down, the drive through the pins was excellent. I found the short sport pattern to work best for the layout. Overall I think this is valuable to the Paradox family.

If you do not have the requested specs i.e. pin size and cannot fulfil the order as requested, do you refund the order. I do not see the logic in discussing other shipment options if you do not have specified pin placement for this particular ball in stock. Please confirm.8/23/2019 - By Goldie
The order must first be placed with your requested specs listed on the order. If our warehouse cannot find the specs you requested we can call you before shipping to go over what we found. At that time you may proceed or cancel the order. If our warehouse has the correct specs that you requested we do not call back but instead just ship the order out.8/26/2019 - By Bowling.Com Staff
What is the package size L W H for one x 13 pound bowling ball plus one x thumb slug .. and the package weight total please.8/31/2019 - By Goldie
A ball box is usually 10x10x10 inches. The overall weight would be roughly 1 lb over the weight of the ball due to the cardboard boxes and packaging so expect the shipping weight to be 14lbs or a little over 14lbs.9/4/2019 - By Bowling.Com Staff

Paradox come in red10/8/2019 - By Gator
There is a different Paradox that come in red but in the higher performance balls a different color option will also mean that the ball reacts different on the lanes. For example the Paradox V is designed to go longer on the lanes with a sharp backend hook because it is a pearl coverstock ball with a polished finish. The Paradox Red had a duller cover and it reacts much earlier on the lane for a smoother arc hook.
