My Information: Ball Speed-15/16 mph, Rev Rate:285 average RPMS
Axis Rotation-45 degrees, Axis Tilt-15 degrees.
Ball Spec Information:Core-Gear Drive, Cover:Atomix Arc Solid Reactive
RG:2.48 15lbs, Diff:0.34/ 15lbs, Surface Tested:OOB sanded 3000 grit.
Color:Blue/Orange/Green/White
Ball Tested Drill Specs:50x30 @3" P3 X-Hole


Lanes Tested On:All types of synthetics & wood.

The Venom Strike cover and core combination creates more friction than the Sigma
Tour,but less than the Primal Scream.
The cover along with the low RG Gear Drive core gives the Venom more hook
throughout the entire lane than the Sigma Tour but less than the Scream.
I saw a very smooth rolling reaction from start to finish from the Venom
The ball starts up earlier than the Sigma Tour with better mid-lane bite.
The Venom clears the heads easy but turns up the revs at the mid-lanes,but makes
a nice controlled arcing move off the back end.I found very minimal
over-under on most house shots.Also the Venom plays great when the
lanes start to transition and you have some area to the right.

On the THS:The Venom allowed me to open up and play the lane with a larger
swing area.On the oilier house shots the Venom allowed me square up a little
more to the right.Playing this area gave me great reaction off the break point,
and a very nice roll to the pocket with good pin carry.

On very dry house shots:The Venom is way too strong for me on this shot,
I would use the Backdraft or Ascent Pearl on this shot.

On a modified TOC pattern, the Venom sanded to 2000 grit,worked great.It allowed
me to play the oil line without a over reaction on the back of the pattern.

I could move inside a little and use the core/cover combo to create the area
I needed.The smooth back end reaction helped me keep the ball in line
without worrying about any drastic bite off the friction.

On a 39' flatter pattern,the Venom worked for me but the cover
needed to be adjusted to 1000 grit for me to play the pattern as I needed,then
I could line up and stay within the oil line at 8-9 and get the ball to face
earlier and control the back end.The pin carry also increased.


Overall:This ball is a great first out of the bag ball on most house shots.
In my opinion the key for the Venom is find the right drilling and cover
adjustment.The Venom is very versatile and should fit most styles.

Have you got a chance to throw it side by side with the GTI to see any comparison between the two? And where you would fit that in terms of length on the lanes with the Raptor and Primal Scream? I've been watching a bowler use his Venom Strike lately and he said it's seems stronger than his Raptor with the same layouts and surface.

I have thrown both side by side.The GTI has more backend motion.While the Venom starts up earlier because of the
solid cover.The GT1 works great for me when the lanes are open.
The ball gives me a lot of backend motion off the dry.While the
Venom seems to be a bit milder at the back.

The GT1 Would fit nicely between the Raptor P7 and the Primal scream.I do believe that the Venom Strike is a strong early
rolling ball,but without a big backend motion.The Venom's
early roll is really a plus on flatter medium length patterns,it helps control the backend.

I totally agree with Motiv Girl's review of the Venom. Great job Motiv Girl! This ball will totally blend out the condition if u have a severe wet dry. I think it hooks a little more than most would expect, so if your a higher rev player i would keep the pin up and stay away from any early roll drillings. It may be a really good sport condition ball if there is a decent volume of oil. It won't do any tricks. Surface is very critical on this ball.
