The Motiv Cruel Intent is a ball that can "hooktheworld" if you choose to drill it in that way. I was looking for a ball on fresh that I could play down and in with a hard move off the spot. The ball is designed to be used on heavy oil, I don't get "heavy oil" in my county so I am just trying to use it on Fresh. I drilled the ball with a 70 x 3.75 x 40 drilling (inspired by Motiv video). I got exactly what I saw in the video despite the differences in Revs, Speed, Rotation and Tilt. That has to count for something? Basically the ball can work for anyone and everyone as long as you match up the intended layout and use it in the correct situation. Hats off to Motiv on that one.
The ball got incredible length! That was both a benefit and a disadvantage. When the backends and the oil were fresh the ball was a striking machine. As the fronts got drier and the backends longer the ball had to be manipulated a bit more to keep up the desired reaction. It was not easy to get it to the pocket by just making a move left. I had to either put a bit more rev rate into it or I had to add more axis rotation while bring my tilt a bit higher. Would much rather switched to my pin under Primal Rage and keep my release the same. Now mind you that I am not bowling on HEAVY volume. I also did not choose a layout that allows you to move left and "hooktheworld". The ball did exactly what it promised but it didn't knock my socks of.
I am also preparing for a local PBA regional that will use the new 32' Wolf pattern. Contrary to popular believe, Wolf is NOT a ton of friction to the right. It is oiled all the way to the 2 board. It is also VERY flat front to back as well as side to side. Plays more like a 36' US Open then a Cheetah. LOTS of gutter balls if you get your shoulders open at all. That being said, I was NOT able to play up the 2 board. The ball got so much length, YES too much length on a 32' pattern, that I had to find a different angle of attack. I was able to play 11 to 8 with the Cruel Intent. It was amazing that I was playing it like a house shot when everyone else was hitting the 6 pin or the 4 pin trying to play the same area. Like I stated before, the balls biggest benefit is also its disadvantage. It is up to the bowler to find which is which and know when to use them.
I do like the Cruel Intent but I am not going to say it is better than the Primal Rage. Great ball for what I wanted it to do. IF I used a different drilling I might have had a different opinion but I only get 1 to drill and this is my conclusion.
Hope it helps you to make your decision. Please watch my video and if you have any comments do hesitate to add them to the youtube comment section. I will answer.

Thanks,

Those comments tell me waaay more than what your (nicely done) video reviews do.

Thanks for the comments and the hard work you put into your reviews.
Nice job!

Thank you. I feel as if the review is important but seeing the ball can make or break if your on the fence about adding one to your arsenal.
