The Venom Recoil has been the ball of choice at the start of any tournament or league night. This is the first asymmetric Venom in the Venom Line. This ball features a Coercion MFS Reactive cover stock along with the all new Gear APG. At 4,000 grit LSS this ball gives you length along with a strong backend motion.
16 lbs. this ball has a 2.48 RG, .032 MAX Diff, and .011 INT Diff.
15 lbs. this ball has a 2.47 RG, .036 MAX Diff, and .013 INT Diff.
This ball will be a favorite in your bag right from the beginning. I was surprised at how much it hooks and how quick it reads friction. For me, I am 3 boards left to start compared to the Golden Jackal, but these 2 balls make such a good combo once the lanes start to open up.
This ball has helped me win a big local tournament the first weekend I got it drilled and just recently averaged over 230 in PA States Open Championship with this ball and then with the Golden Jackal.
This ball is perfect for all styles and everyone I talk to about this ball loves the reaction and the power through the pocket.
The Venom Recoil is the first asymmetric Venom ever released by MOTIV and it has the new Gear APG weight block. This asymmetric weight block will give drillers more layout versatility with no balance-hole. The original Venom Shock is known for providing amazing performance at a very affordable cost, and the new Venom Recoil will be the same. I see myself using this ball when the Shock is a little too early and I need something that will go just a little longer with a strong backend motion.
I had to put down my Venom Shock Pearl and try the New Recoil. I still have not picked the VSP back up since adding the Recoil to my bag. Out of the box the coverstock was a little uncontrollable, added a touch of polish and wow.
Throwing 19 to 23 mph depending on oil pattern. I bowled state tournament on USBC Blue 3. Everyone said outside 7 was out of bounds, and bowlers around us all tried and rolled out or gutterballed. I tossed the Recoil out to the 2 board and revved it up, when it snapped back into the 1-2 pocket I had 4 different bowlers ask what ball did i throw. The Recoil was not released to the public yet but it helped presell a bunch at my local alley. I spent the first 2.5 games of doubles throwing 15 to 2, then once the patteren broke down I pulled the VSP out and threw 20 to 5 for games 2.5 to 4.5. The Recoil is my go to initial ball. Unless a pattern 1 to 1 or something that demands i pull put the Golden, Or Abyss.

The New Motiv Venom Recoil is a great addition to the line. Motiv has got ahead of the new balance hole rules by putting an Asymmetric core into the Venom line. I think we will see more Asymmetric balls by all brands in the future and I am glad Motiv is one of the brands out front on this. I have always done well with the Venom Shock but I believe I like the Recoil more. These are strong words from a Motiv Shock fan. The Recoil is stronger than the Shock for me, and has a much stronger back end motion. I was able to belly the Recoil out more than the Shock and did not fear recovery or hit. I compared both balls with the same surface and the layouts where very close. The shock has a balance hole, The Recoil does not. The Recoil seems to drive through the pins harder for me also. I think the box factory finish does exactly what it was designed to do. It looked rougher than 4000 to me though. The Recoil does take surface changes well if needed. The Recoil is a great piece to pull out if the Shock is not quite getting there. I think the new core is a perfect match for this cover. The Recoil fits between my Shock and my Forge in hook. The Motiv Venom Recoil works very well for various styles on medium or medium heavy conditions. It is a killer on a slightly wet house shot.
The color of the Recoil is great. Very reminiscent of the Panic which was also a great ball by Motiv. It will definitely get noticed as well as the great price for an Asymmetric ball making it a very nice value.
The Venom Recoil is a stronger version of the Shock.
The Recoil is driller friendly regarding the new rules.
This is a great ball when the Shock is lying off.
The Recoil is a great looking ball at a value price.
The Venom Recoil features the all new Gear APG core and is the first asymmetric ball in the Venom line! It comes wrapped in the Coercion MFS Reactive coverstock that is also found on the Villain and T10, two balls that are a must in my bag. I drilled the Recoil with the same layout as my OG Shock, pin under ring. I was looking for the Recoil to read the lanes and give me a smoother reaction off the spot.
My first practice session with this ball went very well. I threw the first 7 out the gate before leaving an 8 pin. The ball definitely reminds me of my T10, but allows me to get a little deeper. I compared it with my pin up T10 and I was about 4 & 2 left off my T10 line. The second session with the Recoil was during my film session where I compared it with the OG Shock and VSP. The lanes had a left over house shot from open play. Compared to the Recoil, I was about 2 & 2 right with my OG Shock, and about 4 & 2 right with my VSP. I definitely felt comfortable moving more left with the Recoil as it read the lanes well and was able to come back stronger on shots that went too far out.
As with most of the Venom line, the Recoil will make an excellent benchmark ball that will help tell you what the lanes are giving you. Once it starts to lose energy, you can easily switch to a VSP and stay in the same general area.
