The Motiv Supra features the Infusion Pearl Reactive Cover wrapped around the High Impulse core. This cover is a pearl version of the Infusion cover used on the Ripcord and Forge Fire (Two of my favorite balls in my bag right now). The Infusion Pearl cover is marketed to be clean with tons of backends. I went pin above my ring finger which is the same layout as my Ripcord.
For me, Motiv delivered on their word and created a beast of a ball in the backends. The Supra is significantly cleaner through the fronts and gives me more back end motion than my Ripcord which is perfect for when the Ripcord is too strong. My first time throwing the Supra was during a 4-gamer and was the only ball I threw games 2-4. I was able to create more angle than anyone on the pair. To compare, I moved about 3-4 boards right off my Recoil, and 2 boards right off my Ripcord. This is a great option when the lanes burn up and you’re looking for something to get down the lane without worrying if it’ll over hook or be too weak to come back. This is a great combo with something like a Blitz, Recoil, or Venom Shock for league.

The Supra all I can say is wow. For me this ball clears the front and the middle parts of the lane super well for me but it definitely doesn't lack power and reaction on the back-end. The way this ball stores energy is great. This is definitely a must have.

As you can tell by the heading title I might be over exaggerating, but I’m not. This ball lives up to the hype. If you're having trouble getting the ball through fronts? Seeing too much early hook? Bowl on high friction lanes or your center uses less oil? Well the Supra is your answer. When I can get my hand to do multiple tricks and still see the Supra be very clean through the fronts and miss, but still make that #sideways shape down lane you know you got a special piece in your hand. One word to describe the Supra. IMPRESSIVE!
I had the opportunity to test 8 Motiv balls at a recent Test Drive event. I went in knowing little about the Motiv line, but this ball really seemed to work well for me. I was a little concerned about how the ball would hold up in heavier oil because the lanes were dry during the event, but I pulled the trigger and made the purchase and I could not be happier with this ball! Really fits my game well. Great reaction down lane and good penetration through the pins. Highly recommend if you are looking for an angular ball!
The title says it all. Great things have been coming out of Muskegon and the Supra is no exception. This ball features the Infusion cover stock from the Ripcord with a modified version of the Impulse core found in the famous “Red ball”. Made for friction this ball has the fastest response to friction of any ball I have ever had. During league when the lanes break down and I need to get left, this is the piece I grab. It’s very clean through the fronts and mids but once it hits the “spot” it turns. This ball really allows me to open up my angles when I need to without compromising carry.
