I am getting ready to pick up a few motiv ball. I am doing with a GT1 an SR2 and a QZ1 red.

Right now I am throwing a purple Rhino and a Power Groove reactive. I have had to slow my ball speed down to between 12-14 to get these balls to react. My more natural ball speed is probably between 15 to 17. I throw the ball with a decent amount of revs (not sure on the exact number) and I guess I am a "tweener" from what I have been told.

I am looking at the GT1 to be my main ball, the SR2 for carrydown or just when I want to go longer with more backend and the QZ1 for medium to dry conditions.

Does anybody have any advice on how to get these balls drilled up for my game?

It is really difficult to give you accurate advice w/o seeing you throw but here are some guidelines you & your ball driller can discuss. I've had very good results w/GT1, 4" pin/pap w/CG stacked. Small wt hole 1 1/2" down VAL. Kept it OOB finish. For the QZ1 Red, try a 5" pin/pap above the finger w/CG kicked out & small wt. hole 1"-2" below pap down VAL. I like my SR2 w/4 1/2" pin/pap below ring finger, again w/CG kicked out sharply w/wt hole 2 1/2" down VAL.

Again these are just drilling that I have tried & found to do well for what I bowl on. It may vary for you depending on your release, ball speed, and type of conditions you find yourself bowling on. I use to have a Purple Rhino Pro & I could only throw it on torched conditions or on Cheetah-type fresh conditions so I understand why you had to slow down to get it to react. Anyhow, you make the right move to Motiv. Best of luck to you & let us know if we can help further. Always glad to have a new member of Motiv-nation!

Thank you for the reply. I will take that info to the driller when we get going. Another quick question. I am retooling my thumb hole as well. Right now I just have a straight hole drilled in the ball that of course when I get a little swelling has me hanging up a little. Should I go with a slug? one of those inserts with the little hump in it? Or just get the hole a little oversized and then adjust with tape?

To your second question...... yes. I would go with a slug either way, this way if you dont like the result you can have the slug drilled out using the same size bit you used to origianlly to put the slug in, add another one and go to town. If you just drill the hole bigger you may not like the result and then would have to have the hole filled and re drilled, more money overall. Also with a slug you can still use tape in the hole to find that perfect fit and remove the tape as your thumb starts to swell and grab during release.
