The new Forge™ Fire brings the heat to the medium-heavy oil Forge™ line.   Featuring the new Infusion™ Hybrid Reactive coverstock, the Forge™ Fire has a much faster response to friction than the original Forge™.  This eye popping low rg/high differential symmetrical piece is a must have for people looking to stand out and strike!

The Infusion™ coverstock, previously used on the RipCord is an incredibly angular hybrid shell.  Bowlers reported creating more angle with the Ripcord™ than any ball previously manufactured by MOTIV® Bowling.  Now, we are offering this shell with a much lower radius of gyration and a substantially higher differential using the Detonator™ core.  The combination of an angular cover with a fast-spinning, high differential core is a ball that can create angle in high concentrations of oil. 

Bowlers who are speed dominant will be able to use the Forge™ Fire to create angle when friction begins to develop.  This larger core in the Forge Fire allows speed dominant bowlers to see the shapes that other players have with high rg cores. Rev dominant players who like to create angle will be able to do so with this ball earlier in the block or on higher concentrations of oil than they can normally use fast responding coverstocks due to the added traction from high flare and control of a low RG core.  Balanced bowlers can expect the Forge™ Fire to perform best on medium-heavy oil patterns when they need to create angle, but cannot “ball down” into truly skid/flip bowling balls.

    FORGE FIRE is a must have.
    For myself this ball is amazing. It allows me to move left(house shot) and not worry about the corner pins while knowing if I miss right it is coming back like it’s on FIRE. If you want a ball for heavier oil or for when you need to move left but can’t carry this is the ball for the job. This is a ball that I will stock up on and have a few in the bag for years.

    I would recommend this to a friend

    Forge Fire!!

    Layout: 60x4.5x40

    With a low RG and higher Diff combined with a hybrid cover stock, the Forge Fire gives a very predictable shape through the middle of the lane, with a lot of length and more back end motion. I'm able to throw this ball on heavier oil patterns and it still has incredible shape down lane and continuation through the pins, which is something that was previously missing from my arsenal. If you're looking for a higher end ball with more down lane motion, or are a speed dominant player that has trouble with carry, look no further than the new Forge Fire!

    A great compliment to the original Forge!

    The original Forge is a great ball for heavier oil when you want a smooth, round, predictable shape. It has bailed me out of a lot of tough situations since it was released. The Forge Fire takes that rolly core that was on the original Forge, but puts the same hybrid coverstock on it that was on the RipCord. The result is a ball that has the ability to read the pattern well, but gives you more length and more flip on the backend to help maximize your carry. If you liked the Forge and want something to compliment it when you move left, or even if you didn't think the Forge would have been good for you because you wanted more flip in your higher-end ball, then the Forge Fire is definitely something you'll want to look at. It's had great success on the PBA Tour as well. Plus that awesome bright yellow!!!

    I have put together a YouTube video review of the Forge Fire, which you can watch here:

    This ball has far surpassed my expectations. It’s so adaptable and versatile. I thought my Abyss was good but in my opinion this ball is better.

    Go to ball!!

    Had one drilled up. Threw one game after league and was kicking myself I didn't use it earlier. The ball is real smooth with a punch at the end. It's my new favorite ball.
