Capable of striking from many angles on a variety of medium oil patterns, the Chronic Paranoia is an incredibly versatile benchmark ball. Featuring the wildly innovative Oblivion core and new Agitator Solid Reactive cover stock, the Chronic Paranoia delivers impressive ball motion. The Chronic Paranoia is a medium oil, moderately angular ball that will provide almost every bowler with a great reaction on many types of oil patterns. Rev dominant players will be able to use it to open up the lane while speed dominant players will have no trouble seeing continuation when playing straighter.
A great competitive advantage in bowling today is modern urethane. It provides bowlers with control and the ability to play different parts of the lane than reactive resin. However, because urethane also has clear weaknesses, MOTIV® set out to create the ultimate cover material that harnesses the strengths of traditional urethane, but offers far more versatility. Introducing the Covert Tank.
The revolutionary Frixion™ cover material MOTIV® developed for the Covert Tank is not urethane nor reactive resin. It is microcell polymer. Traditional urethane is virtually non-absorbing while reactive resin is highly absorbent. Frixion™ microcell polymer absorbs oil at a fraction of the speed of reactive resin, but is still capable of absorbing oil at a very slow rate. This microscopic difference creates more continuation and better pin carry without sacrificing traction.
While typical urethane balls are primarily used by bowlers with a high rev rate, the Covert Tank is a more versatile piece that will benefit more styles of play because it merges this new microcell polymer cover with a strong Torx™ weight block. The higher differential produces more track flare, which both improves backend motion and also limits oil redistribution. Traditional urethane balls tend to have lower track flare, struggle with pin carry, and push more oil down lane.
Even the color scheme of the Covert Tank was created with the competitive bowler in mind. The solid black cover with dark gray pearl NeoMark graphics provides a crisp contrast to the lane surface so ball motion is easy to see.
A never-before-seen cover and core combination of R3S Hybrid and the Velocity Core shines above all else.
It reveres its past but is imminently future-forward. When the corners get tough, R3S gets tougher.
The Velocity Core has become a staple in the Storm lineup.
This low RG, high differential construction has turned into the go-to chassis for professionals around the world.
Its benchmark characteristics serve a multitude of styles across a variety of patterns
This fast-revving shape, the aptly named, supercharged Velocity core smooths out the backend reaction without over-reacting and avoids creating an undesirable last-second movement.
The nature of the core gives it plenty of motion due to the higher differential, but with the forgiveness all players love to see.
Creating the Mutated Rotary™ weightblock was a long time coming. After countless request to re-introduce weightblocks of the past, it was time to configure a new higher RG symmetrical shape in order to produce more length and more down lane shape in the HP3 line.
The SureTrax-S19™ coverstock is a brand new formulation to the Roto Grip line. This chemically enhanced formulation will provide more traction than eTrax™, but will not be as early and grabby like MicroTrax™. This material will provide a new look on the lane for Roto Grip.
We were long past due in creating a higher RG symmetrical ball for the HP3 line. Between the new cover and the new core, we have further expanded the range of versatility in the HP3 line of balls. This ball will excel on medium to medium heavy conditions providing a totally different reaction down lane than you are used to seeing in the HP3 line.
