Venom Shock

Item Number: MTVBVSPPS

$169.9938 Read Reviews

The new solid purple Venom Shock produces a violent reaction on light to medium oil conditions.  It attacks the lane with the proven Gear™ weight block and new cover technology – Turmoil™ MFS (Medium Friction Solid) Reactive, which is a modified version of the more aggressive shell featured on the Covert Revolt.  This core and cover combination provides a smooth yet angular backend motion that strikes with devastating continuation.   

As far as shelf appeal, the Venom Shock does not disappoint.  The vibrant orange logo really pops off the purple shell.  And, for those that are into glow-in-the-dark bowling, the logos on the ball glow orange and green. 

The Venom Shock really does have it all – performance, looks, and a great price point.  The most shocking thing about this ball may be that you get such outstanding performance at such an affordable price!

    My Shock

    I have owned my Venom Shock for 2.5 years now. It has helped me win 2 tournaments. The predictability of the ball and repetitive motion is what makes the ball so valuable for me. When I'm on a medium pattern with lower volume, I use this ball to control the wet-dry. I've suggested it to many friends and 3 of them have bought it so far and all really like it. It will be a hard ball to get rid of.

    I would recommend this to a friend

    GREAT BALL for every occasion!

    Literally loved this ball so much I bought 2. 1 pin up, 1 Rico drilled. Great for multiple looks, various patterns, and smooth!

    The only one you need for league

    I returned to serious bowling last year and while looking for equipment a friend turned me on to Motiv. I hadn't heard much but in talking with him and doing my own research I decided to give them a try and bought a Venom Shock. That was the best decision I could have made.

    I immediately noticed how easily it revved up seemingly on its own. I love the predictable smooth shape it gives and just has a overall great arc downlane. I can't believe how wide my strike pocket is with the Venom Shock, it really sets up nicely, and my coach agrees. If I roll up high flush - crush 10 back and I even get the 4 out on hits that look too high. On lighter hits I get a lot of side motion and carry all the swishers as well. This combination lets me stay ahead of transition so in addition to carrying nearly everything that's close I stay lined up better because I know I have the carry to move earlier than I normally would. Misses left push just enough and misses right react well to the dry.

    Initially I thought I'd end up with a mixed bag as I developed my arsenal. My experience with the Venom Shock changed my mind. Nothing but Motiv is going in that bag.

    My Go-to

    I LOVE this ball. Was the first one I received as a gift when my previous ball cracked. First thing that caught my eye was the color combo (blue and orange; HUGE Gator fan). Secondly, the beautiful resin reactive coverstock when polished just really POPS when you pull it out of the box. As far as on the lanes, one of the smoothest balls I've rolled. Gets through the front part of the lanes with ease and mids with a little fight before hitting the back end and snapping a bit in the pocket. Forgiving if you hit light or miss outside (anything 10, 8 board and out). Finishes well through the pocket, no wiggling corner pins. This ball reacts better on medium to light oil. Ball is versatile if you're a down and in type or more of a swinger. Highly recommend as a beginner ball but also as a trusted "go-to" when lane conditions are drying up.
