I love my Cruel LE but hands down it's the Raptor Attack. I have 2 but one just got ruined & I almost ordered another...but figured I'd give the 2Cruel a shot.

Aaron, do you still wanna trade for my Hybrid with like 3 games on it. LOL.

For me, the best ball I have thrown from Motiv is.....

Original Cruel, and original Recon. These two are completely different balls/reactions, however both have been very good to me. I think I would give the recon a slight edge over the Cruel, due to my rev rate and oil volume that I see more of in my area.
But also I'd like to add, there has yet to be a Motiv ball that I have disliked. Every release, from the begining, has filled a hole in my arsenal and given me all the tools needed to compete.

Depends on your definition of "best". The ball that has the highest strike percentage when I throw it good, out of any ball I've probably ever thrown in my life, is the Sigma Tour. That ball goes thru the pins better than any other ball I have ever owned. When I throw that ball good, I am very very surprised if it doesn't carry.

However, if I don't throw it "good" (if I get a little soft with the ball speed, or miss grabbing it at the bottom of the swing, or if I'm a little off target, etc...), then it doesn't have near the recovery or forgiveness that the SR2 gives me. I can throw it almost anywhere anyhow and it will usually still find the pocket, and it still hits almost as good and gives me a pretty high strike percentage... just not as high as the Sigma Tour.

If I could get every ball off my hand the way I wanted to (easier said than done), then I would drill up about 8 Sigma Tours and a spare ball. BUT, flawed as I am, I believe the "best" ball I've ever thrown would be the SR2, given its combination of forgiveness, consistency, and maintaining hitting power.

(To help with comparison, the SR2 for me rolls a lot like the old Danger Zone did for me... and the Sigma Tour a lot like the Speed Zone)

Wow.. this is a tough question.

The Qz2 Blue is the ball that got me hooked on MOTIV, it is also the ball I got my last honor score with and has about 200 games on it. A fine part of the arsenal indeed.

But my vote would have to go to the Sigma Tour. This ball is well deserving of every award it won, certanly the versitile ball on themarket. My average is the highest it has ever been since getting the Sigma Tour. It is definately my number 1.

Not sure if its the best, but I really like the Sigma Tour and Thrash


How would compare the two balls: length, turn, power, continuation, etc? Use on same condition or different? What kind of shot do you throw: Stroker, tweener, power? I'm in a toss up on which one to get and would like your opinion. Thanks.


For me the Thrash is smoother off the spot. Gets into a nice roll but still has a strong arc at the back. The Sigma Tour for me is a bit more skiddish. Gets down the lane with a stronger move. They compliment each other very well for me
