$179.998 Read Reviews


The Venom line is getting a power upgrade with the new Venom Recoil. This is the first asymmetric Venom ever released by MOTIV and it features the new Gear APG (Asymmetric Performance Gain) weight block.

Because the balance-hole rule has changed, MOTIV created the asymmetric Gear APG weight block to give ball drillers more layout versatility when no balance-hole is used.

The original Venom Shock provides incredible performance at a very affordable price and this new asymmetric Venom Recoil is no different. This ball offers massive value!

    Venom Recoil Review


    The new Venom Recoil is the newest release from MOTIV Bowling. The Venom line has stood the test of time and just keeps getting better and better. For the first time, MOTIV as design an asymmetrical core in the MOTIV line to coincide with the new rule changes that are coming from USBC to give ball drillers more versatility in drilling. The Venom Recoil brings the new Gear APG asymmetrical core and the Coercion MFS Reactive cover stock, The Recoil gives a similar shape and performance as the original Venom Shock. If you love the Shock, then the Recoil will be another wonderful piece in your bag.

    I got one word for the new Venom Recoil, WOW! Out of the box I shot a nice 825 in my Wednesday league and was just blown away with the performance of the new Recoil. The recoil gives me the same shape as the Shock, but I feel I can keep my angles straighter, especially when transition is starting to hook because from what I see it’s just a tad slower off the spot then the shock so I don’t have to give away the pocket. But I can also open up my angles was well, therefore the versatility of the Recoil is quite similar to the shock and its nice that when you need a nice asymmetrical bowling ball but you don’t want to pay high performance price, the Recoil is yours to have. All styles will love the Recoil because as the similar shape to the Shock on any condition.

    Likes: Smooth ball motion; even back end and continuation through the pins; Versatile

    Dislikes: None

    I recommend the Venom Recoil for all types of bowlers.

    Asymmetric Venom!!!

    The Venom line just got some new power with the Venom Recoil.   Featuring the new Gear APG (Asymmetric Performance Gain) weight block this Light-Meduim ball is very impressive.  With the upcoming balance-hole rule change, MOTIV created the asymmetric weight block to give ball drillers more layout versatility when no balance-hole is used.  Wrapping this ball with the Coercion MFS (medium friction solid) reactive cover stock, you have a ball which has gives you awesome performance at a great value.  I see this ball getting lots of use in both league and tournament play!  You will want to pick up one or two of these for your bag!

    Asymmetrical Venom?!?

    The Venom Recoil is Motiv’s first asymmetrical ball in the Venom line and it is more than worthy of the Venom name !! This ball features the all new Gear APG asymmetric core and the Coercion MFS reactive cover !! This ball has that same ball motion of the Venom Shock but earlier and smoother ! This ball is perfect for me when I want that smooth control shape that the Shock gives but when the Shock just isn’t enough ! I’ve tossed this ball on short patterns as well as some longer patterns and it definitely does no disappoint !! This ball has already been added to my all tournament bag !! Go out and get yours on 3-20-19 #GetMOTIVated

    Venom Recoil

    With the new Recoil being asymmetrical and knowing this ball will react with sharper angles as it reads friction, I was really excited to drill one and see how it responds when it reaches the break point.
    Bowling leagues and seeing the heads burn up quickly, I wanted to take advantage of the this new upcoming release. With new upcoming rule changes and weight holes being eliminated this Recoil gives greater layout potential.
    If and when I have some carry concerns switching to the asymmetrical Venom Recoil allows me to get though the chewed up heads and with a little help from the power gel polish I know carry isn't a concern anymore because the surface adjustments stop the ball from hooking so quickly as it reads early friction. Doing this gives me some additional skid down lane and makes it a bit faster through the front part of the lane.
    To keep it simple this ball is smooth and creates a nice arcing shape. This ball works best for me when I pulled my breakpoint in and I see this ball being great on house and medium to medium light patterns.
    Highly Recommend.

    New must have ball

    This ball is a motion most would not expect or believe from a ball at this price point. Completely undervalued/appreciated for performance it provides on fresh or burn. When my original Shock is just not creating enough entry angle to carry a ten pin, I can switch to the Recoil and know the 10 will disappear.

    A must have ball for any serious league/tournament bowler.
