Description: The Forza GT is the third Forza in the series, but the first with a hybrid coverstock. The new Helix HR (Hybrid Reactive) shell covers the original Torx Core used in the previous two Forza’s. This Forza once again has the MOTIV Badge Logo, which gives it great shelf appeal.

Reaction: It’s an honest assessment that the Forza GT is a combination of the first two Forza’s. The Forza GT provides more length than the original, but not as clean as the Forza Redline. In terms of shape down lane the Forza GT is not as slow or smooth as the original, but also not as fast or angular as the Redline when seeing friction. As far as overall hook the Forza GT is stronger than either of the first two Forza’s given all things are equal (layouts, surface and lane condition). I think for a majority of the people who throw this it will become a benchmark ball. With the overall shape the Forza GT provides and continuation, it will allow success with multiple angles of attack. With the box finish or less it will be useable on a lot of house conditions and with the box finish or even more surface added I think it will be useable on a lot of challenging medium to heavy oil conditions.

Comparisons: The original Forza was very early and very controllable, making it more condition specific. The Forza Redline was almost too fast or angular to be considered a benchmark ball, once again the Forza GT will fit right in between. MOTIV inserts the Forza GT in the smooth column of the ball guide (http://www.motivbowling.com/resources/ball-guide.html), but because of the combination of the unique shape and strength, it provides a lot of versatility. The Revolt Havoc is much earlier and much slower down lane and although your eyes will tell you the Forza GT hooks more that is only because the Revolt Havoc hooks almost entirely in the front part of the lane. For me the Forza GT will probably be taking some time away from my Venom Shock, it’s a little stronger and just a little smoother, and I really like the Venom Shock, as I know a lot of people do.

Summary: There are times when I need something smoother but still required to play the deeper part of the lane. The best part about the Forza GT is the carry it has provided on a part of the lane that I struggle to carry with more controllable balls. Also, because I am preparing for USBC’s in Reno I am very surprised at the continuation I see, even when I am very up the back of the ball.
