It has to be the straightest straight ball I have ever throw.

I picked it up from the pro shop last night just before league. Didnt throw it in practice or anything. About the 3rd frame I left a 7 pin so I called on the brand new sniper.

Lined up where I usually flat hand my strike ball at it but I threw it with just as much hand as my strike ball. Usually when I do this with plastic it will move 3-4 boards. Sniper didnt move but maybe a half a board. It was beautiful.

Maybe it is the fresh new coverstock, but it was sweet.

Mine does the same thing. My friend threw a White Dot and he has now stopped using that and throws my Sniper. It's just so darn straight. I have like 30ish games on mine and it still reacts the same.

I threw mine on Tuesday and chopped the 6-10 4 times
Ball does what it is suppose to do that is for sure.

Just need to make some minor adjustments

Whats really nice about this ball is that it's so straight that you can take it down to 1000 or even 500 grit and use it when the gutters are fried and still dead hand it for spares. I shot 267 front 8 with mine about a month ago off the corner. Yet another wonderful production from motiv.

^ The other day it was so dry during open bowl I was able to slow my throw down to like 11mph and turned my revs waaaaay up to use it as a pretty successful strikeball; I shot like a 160 with it using it for both strikes and spares. It felt like I was throwing a urethane, but it sure did hit like a Motiv ball.
