I spent hours researching new equipment this morning. I was originally going to go with a Lane #1 ball, but soooooo glad I chose the MOTIV GT 1. In fact, our local pro shop just started carrying their product, and mine was the first one they've sold. Only had 10 minutes of practice before league tonight, then rolled a 691 out of the box (224, 246, 221... opening in the 10th of the third game blowing a 700). Once I found the break point, WOW. This thing turns HARD and absolutely destroys the pins! I've never seen "scouts" cross the deck so fiercely! I KNOW with this ball my average only has one way to go... UP!!! Thanks MOTIV!
