The new Venom Shock Pearl compliments that Original Venom Shock perfectly! The proven Hexion cover was put on this ball while staying with the original gear core. This combination is awesome! I drilled mine 60 x 4.5 x 70 with a light 1000 abralon grit on the surface. Even with the 1000 surface, this ball is still very clean through the front part of the lane and I never had to deal with the ball grabbing too early as the lanes transitioned. Compared to the original venom shock, the pearl is much cleaner through the front part of the lane but still has that great continuation the Original Shock is known for. The best part of this ball is how low the pins stay when the ball enters the pocket. This feature maximizes carry and this ball certainly doesn't disappoint!
Ladies and Gentlemen,
Motiv brings you the Venom Shock Pearl (VSP)! The VSP has the advanced Venom Shock core wrapped around Motiv's proven Hexion cover stock. With the combination of these two variables, the VSP is clean, angular, but also very controllable. When the original Venom Shock is starting to become too soon and too smooth when players migrate left, the VSP is the perfect compliment and gives players the back end and continuation players are looking for when they have to migrate left (right being a left handed.)
I drilled two VSP, one pin up over the ring finger and one pin down below the ring finger. My pin up VSP allows me to really open up my angles and throw the ball to the right, giving me the confidence that it's going to come back. My pin down VSP allows me to have my angles closed more and play straight, which is my "A game."
Taking the shine off this ball really showed me how versatile this ball truly is. With the out of box finish, I can see myself using both pin Up and pin down way later in blocks when the lanes are very dry and the lane forces me deep inside. When I touched both VSP with surface, 2000 grit, they are a great option on medium conditions or even to start your league night on your typical house shot. Even with the surface, the VSP still has that great shape as the original Venom Shock, just more downlane motion.
This ball is truly a home run. Go get yours in February!
