The newest upper mid performance release from Motiv, and the next in the Villain line. The proven Sinister Core is back, but this time wrapped in the newest Hexion Pearl cover technology. This ball has all of the great qualities of the original Villain, except it's cleaner, and comes off the spot harder, which is great for when the original Villain starts to become too early, or you've reached a spot on the lane where it doesn't go through the pins as well. Switch to the Villain Scorn for a cleaner reaction through the front, and a sharper down lane motion.
If you are looking for a ball that compliments the Original Villain perfectly, the VILLAIN SCORN is your answer
The Villain Scorn features the Sinister core found on the original Villain, and comes with the Hexion SE pearl cover. I have mine drilled with the pin above the fingers and left it at box finish (5000 Grit LSP).
For me, the Villain Scorn is pretty smooth. I used my VSP as a control ball and I moved about 3 and 1 in off my VSP line. The Scorn reads the lanes much sooner than the VSP, but total board coverage I have them fairly close. I compared the Scorn to my Rogue Blade as well that I have at 2000 grit. I played them right on top of each other and noticed the Scorn got the corner pins out and had more drive going through the pins. I moved another 3 and 1 in off the Scorn line and was able to carry better with the Blade. I see this ball coming into play when I need a pearl without getting too much over under. For me, it’s a perfect ball down from my Rogue Blade and allows me to play a similar part of the lane.

The villain scorn has been a ball that I use mostly end of second game transitions to the third game. When it's late in a tournament and I need something longer and snappier I use this piece!
The Villain Scorn comes as the perfect complement to the original Villain and a perfect fit in any bowlers arsenal. The Scorn takes the amazing Sinister Core and applies a form of the Hexion Pearl coverstock to give you an asymmetrical ball that combines length with a strong downlane angular motion.
This ball fits in to the current Motiv line by falling as a ball down to your Jackal Rising and Trident Abyss for when the lanes start to transition and want to see the ball get through the middle part of the lane better.
The Scorn offers more angle down lane than I have been able to see out of anything that I have thrown recently and allows me to really step left and never worry about this ball bouncing off of the dry.
I would recommend this ball for any house pattern that is out there and for any of the medium length and long sport patterns that you would run in to.
Pick this one up and you're sure to become the new Villain at the bracket table!

Prepare to cause some mayhem with the MOTIV Villain Scorn. Marrying the new Hexion SE Reactive coverstock (5000 LSP) with the Sinister core (2.54RG, .051Diff, .018InterDiff) has further enhanced the MOTIV lineup with a ball that cuts through medium-heavy volumes while still retaining a quick response time once friction is found. I drilled mine with the intention of being able to use it on fresher conditions, especially volumes you will find in typical house shots. Leaving the finely-dull box finish, this ball gives me good traction at the beginning of my sets yet still revs quite quickly once it gets to the backend. By having a strong pearl wrapped around a longer-tumbling core, I can play more open angles out of the gate rather than keeping things closed to start; I am seeing a bit more room for forgiveness because of this. So far in my testing with it I have found my terminus, launch angle wise, to be around 30 board for my lay down crossing the arrows at 21. While the Scorn still gets back to the pocket, at this point the Rogue Blade’s energy retention is better and will allow for greater carrying opportunity. For being a pearl-type reaction, the control I feel with it is more akin to a solid; it is extremely predictable even with having a quick-response backend. If you have a Villain, the Scorn perfectly complements it as a cleaner, faster transition piece to continue the feel of your line deeper onto the lane. Overall, I would say that this is a great piece if you want backend pop for the heavier conditions that usually require earlier rolling equipment. The Villain Scorn will be a staple in my bag for quite the time to come.
