Ok here is the link to the pictures of the ball. http://s824.photobucket.com/albums/zz16 ... 342/Motiv/

Does anybody have any ideas? I sent an email to Motiv. I have a friend who has a Recon and his is starting to do this also. I have only had the ball a couple of months also.
Any ideas Justin?

Okay got a reply back from Motiv and the answer is ...... It's a mystery they have no clue. They have not been able to reproduce this on any of there test balls. The good thing is that it is not affecting the performance. So has anybody else had this problem?

My RX1 has that kind of spot, but more faint, in the serial number. I attributed it to machine gunk (Brunswick machines can really build up dirt, lane oil, belt dirt, rust and other random particulate matter into a nasty black pasty sludge). I got most of it out with cleaning, but assumed it was a stain, left over in the porous nature of the cover.

my rx1 has the exact same mark on it.....? Wasn't there when I drilled it, and haven't used it much, due to heavier volumes at our house.

i started having small black spots all over mine from the 3rd day. i was upet about the cover blemishes and was wondering if motiv will do anything about it. i like the orange ball but not with black specs.
probably an overload of balck fill for the logo and its starting to seep throgh from the spinning and since i have a home spinner and spin clean my ball after every league night, i see more spots.

not happy with the spots.
