Description: The Chronic Paranoia uses the same Oblivion Dual Density Core as the original Paranoia. This time though instead of the Agitator Pearl Reactive Coverstock, the Chronic has a Solid version.

Reaction: This release is very'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.

Comparisons: The Chronic Paranoia is very well complemented with other balls in production by MOTIV. To start, the Forza GT is earlier and smoother, but only barely stronger in overall hook potential. It is also worth noting on some conditions the Chronic Paranoia may potentially look like it hooks more because it provides more down lane hook than a Forza GT. Next, the Original Paranoia is a little cleaner and provides a faster response to friction, but is weaker in terms of hook potential.

Summary: Every ball that MOTIV currently produces surrounds this benchmark ball. Whether you're looking to enhance your current arsenal or start an arsenal from scratch this ball is a necessity. It's that ball you throw to start practice before competition, because it reads the lanes so well and dictates what ball you should be using.
