Well I picked up my SR2 last night and tried it out practicing on the Scorpion pattern for 4 games, ( 152,168, 171,204 ) I really like the smoothness of the balls reaction, but I think I will knock the polish off it with a 2000 abralon pad before tonights PBAX league. I bowl on the Scorpion tonight as well and it seemed I needed just a little more bite, so removing the polish should do it.

I think I will have some fun with this ball, it seems predictable..as long as there is no operator error on my part :D I should do ok.
I also had much needed a lesson with my coach, so I'm anxious to. bowl tonight

So so results on the first night with my SR2. 131,199,162,185..just missed too many spares. I played to far in at first, then I made my way out to around the 7-8 board with more success. I like the ball, it hits real hard.. and I imagine on a THS it will be lethal. Still learning to play the PBAX patterns, as you can see..lol.

Its really unbelievable how hard this ball hits. I have used it on some PBA patterns, but on a THS it just destroys a rack, sending pins airborne.
I have read that it just sounds different when Motiv balls hit the pocket, well its tue...the SR2 makes a heckuva "CRACK" when it faces up. Its a fun ball to bowl with...looking forward to another purchase before the season gets underway. The "Cruel" perhaps?....Hmmmm, so many choices :D

My first Motiv was an SR2. Unfortunately, it was destroyed by the ball return tonight. Has a huge gash, right smack dab in my track. Bowling alley will decide tomorrow if they are going to replace or try to fix. If they fix, it will not roll the same. I'm hoping they will replace.

My buddy's Storm X-Factor was chewed up as well. but he was fortunate enough to have his damage close to his PAP.

I got the SR2 a couple weeks ago to go with a new 6 ball bag, only had 5 balls, and couldn't have the bag rolling lopsided. At least that was the excuse I gave. I'm very impressed with the ball to say the least. I like the way it picks up revs when it clears the heads, and it handles my power very well as well. Funny story about this ball purchase is that I e-mailed Motive some time back when they only had 2 balls on the market. I've been impressed with them ever since due to there response to the e-mail and explanation and information they provided. At that time they were basically unheard of, and the pro shop didn't carry them. But now it seems Motive has made a great name for itself, and people are taking notice, and I for one am glad to see it. The SR2 is my first Motive ball, and before I can say not my last, my wife just ordered me a Cruel for my birthday which was yesterday the 13th same as the release date. Not to mention she said the name fits me perfectly, can't argue that. Oh well can't wait to trow it.

Well, my SR2 that I thought was a lost cause was fixed by the bowling alley. They did a so-so job and the plug wasn't smoothed out to match the rest of the shell. It rolled ok, but something wasn't quite right. So I threw it on my spinner, took it down to 500 abralon and worked my way back up to 2000 and Power Gel Polish.

Wow, this made a ton of difference! Out of the chute last night at league, rolled a clean 247 with it.

"Blackie" has risen! :mrgreen:
