Description: The Revolt Havoc maintains the same Vanquish core as the original Covert Revolt and Revolt Vengeance. As usual though MOTIV doesn’t like to repeat coverstocks and this ball is no different, using the new Helix HFS Reactive coverstock. The Revolt Havoc has a vibrant solid purple cover which also provides great shelf appeal.

Reaction: There is no doubt that the Covert Revolt was a unique piece that MOTIV initial provided, but the Revolt Havoc is honestly going to be a legit replacement. It is very simple, the Revolt Havoc is significantly earlier than the Covert Revolt and it may be hard to believe, but it is also more continuous and provides even more hook potential. So the purpose of this release is still to fill that void of a hook AND control piece. My first layout (70 X 4.5 X 60, no hole) is the earlier and stronger of the two layouts. This layout will be best on flatter and heavier patterns. It isn’t a ball that will be used a lot in league or typical house patterns as it is just too early and too strong overall to open the lane up on those types of patterns. My second layout (60 X 5.5 X 35, no hole) is the more versatile layout. So far I have been able to successfully use this on fresh house patterns. It has allowed me to move into the heaviest part of the lane and really blend out the very wet/dry house patterns, which has really opened the lane up because it never loses continuation. Even though this layout is cleaner and has more continuation it is still plenty strong enough throughout the entire lane.

Comparisons: MOTIV always does a very good job at placing balls into their lineup…this one is no different. The Revolt Havoc is replacing the Covert Revolt, but it’s not just a change in color. "To mimic or re-create the Covert Revolt would have been an insult to our customers and boring for us." Brett Spangler-MOTIV Tour Representative. So with that being said yes, the Revolt Havoc is earlier and stronger than the Covert Revolt. As for other comparisons, the Revolt Vengeance is now much cleaner and provides much more shape down lane, but the hook potential is noticeably less than the Revolt Havoc. The Primal Rage Remix is once again much cleaner and has a much faster response down lane, but doesn’t quite catch the hook potential of the Revolt Havoc.

Summary: Well, there are no tricks to this ball, you know exactly what you’re getting. An earlier rolling ball with amazing continuation. I am not going to tell you that this ball is good for all conditions, it is designed for when you want the ball to start sooner and maintain control and a lot of continuation.
