    The FORGE is the strongest symmetrical ball ever created by MOTIV bowling. This ball uses the Coercion HFS coverstock and at 3,000 LSS this ball is both smooth and strong at the same time. it has a RG of 2.47 and a DIFF of .055.

    This ball reads the lanes so well that it is the ball I am falling in love with the more I throw it. It gets to the pocket from just about anywhere on any pattern that I have tried it on. This ball drives through the pocket with power every single time.

    I have also witnessed this ball for different bowling styles be a great option. I bowled in a local tournament and at one time there were 4 of us throwing this ball, each of us playing a different part of the lane and the ball still carrying the corner pins. I highly recommend this ball for everyone.

    Looking Good

    So I recently received my MOTIV Forge a week ago, and let me tell you it's exactly as it's described in the videos and literature. It's very strong. Maybe a board or 2 weaker than my jackal gold. But it's much early and often. Meaning it reads the earlier part of the pattern and blends the pattern down lane. So if you are bowling on something where you need some control from a big hooking ball or bowling on a cliffed house shot this ball is exactly what you are looking for!

    Forge Review


    The Forge is the latest release from MOTIV Bowling. The Forge is the strongest symmetrical bowling ball ever created by MOTIV and also one of the best. The Forge replaces the revolt line with a brand new core and cover stock the MOTIV fans will absolutely love. The Forge brings together the New Detonator core which gives the Forge a low RG and high diff to create easier revs and high flares. Combining the new Detonator core is the new Coericon HFS cover stock that provides high traction, as well as a smooth response to friction on heavier oil conditions. You won’t go wrong with the Forge by MOTIV Bowling.

    I absolutely loved the Revolt line. That line brought me so much success but on house and tournament conditions and lie most was upset that MOTIV as replacing that line. However, my sadness quickly went away throwing the Forge. The shape that the Forge gave me was something that I have never seen in a strong symmetrical. Usually something this strong will lose energy therefore won’t be able to throw this piece on house but that’s not the case. The Forge is the first ball out of my bag and I have sold a lot of them mainly because of the slower response off of friction therefore the retainable energy through the pins I can throw this on any condition and have the confidence to have success. Higher rev players will love this piece on both house and sport because of this and lower rev, lower speed bowlers will love the Forge as well because if that as well. It’s all around a wonderful piece from MOTIV.

    Likes: Smooth reaction down lane; slow response off of friction; retainable energy.

    Dislikes: None

    I recommend this bowling ball for all types of bowlers.

    Motiv Forge !

    Small meaning making a shape the Forge is a great smooth reacting Motiv Bowling Ball. It gives me as a player, a ball to use on medium to heavy conditions to smooth oil pattern out down lane. I drilled my Forge 45x3 ½ x45 which gave me even shape down lane and easy way to make adjustments. Even though the Motiv Forge rolls smooth down lane it has a lot left on back end and powers through pins. It's a great ball for medium to oily lane conditions and is very smooth. Again must have for any novice bowler who loves the Motiv brand. Altogether great ball.

    Forge Ahead!

    55 x 5” x 25

    From the ashes of the Revolts, a new heavy-oil symmetric ball has been born into the MOTIV lineup: the Forge. If the Jackal and Villain asymmetric lines are acting too violently on the conditions you are bowling on, this ball is the go-to complement to pick up. Sporting new technology all around (Detonator core at 2.47RG, .055Diff and Coercion HFS coverstock finished at 3000LSS), the predictability and control this ball shows fits into the top end of the current line up quite well. Since this ball is meant to provide traction in the oil and provide a slower (read: more controllable) reaction at the breakpoint, I put a higher-pin layout on it to help it get through the heads and respond a little quicker at the friction; I felt this was also necessary as I typically do not see true heavy-oil patterns very often. I must say, I have been quite impressed with the versatility the Forge has given me so far. While it does give me predictability on fresh patterns, allowing me to keep my line squared up, it also has the ability to open the lane up more than expected. On a typical league night I can start with a laydown of 14, crossing at 12, and not have to ball down (currently to a T10) until my angle is around 23-17, a full nine and five left. Balls of this nature in the past usually have me putting them away as the transition hits, or after game one, but the wider range in which this Forge carries allows me to get well into, if not through, game two. Even with this steeper angle the ball does not jerk once it hits the dry, it just makes its smooth-shaped motion and continues left through to the pit. There is a distinct advantage in having a ball in your hand that reads the transition well but also gets you through it until you can pick up a cleaner, faster responding piece and take a step left to bank off the dry. The best way I can summarize the Forge is to call it a higher-end benchmark ball. While stronger than a traditional benchmark, the way it reads the lane and the versatility it shows from various zones gives it every indicator to be titled as such.
