Something Sinister has returned to the MOTIV product line and is at the core of the new Villain.  Created to bring devastation on higher volume patterns, the Villain features an incredibly versatile Coercion MFS solid cover and the high RG asymmetric Sinister core.

In the shadows for years, the Sinister core has finally returned to give the powerful Villain easier length than any other asymmetric core in the MOTIV line.  Combining a high RG with loads of differential, the Sinister core enables the Villain to display impressive power and continuation down lane.

Cloaked in a new Coercion MFS Reactive cover, the solid black and blue Villain is powerful yet offers great versatility on medium-heavy lane conditions.  The 3000 Grit LSS finish provides a stable footprint while also allowing the Villain to retain enough energy to display outstanding continuation.    

The Villain offers incredible performance, versatility, and value.  It is the first asymmetric MOTIV ball ever offered below the premium price point and its versatile performance fits a wide variety of bowlers.  Adding to its versatility, the Villain responds very well to surface adjustments.  Take the finish down for a smoother motion on heavy oil or take it up to a higher grit for a moderate benchmark motion.

    Even motion for my down and in shot.

    We bowl on a 42 foot modified main street pattern from Kegel and this ball does a great job for me on fresh. I play up the boards with very little hand, so this smooth motion ball really packs a punch for me. I have the pin above my middle finger. With this layout, the Villian will store all its energy through the head and drive to the pocket to carry the 10.

    Really good, versatile ball

    I like this piece a lot. It gives me good length and an aggressive back end that continues through the pins, but it's still controllable without going full on skid/flip. I can see this working in a pretty wide range of oil conditions. Unless there's a flood of oil, a pattern that's a mile long, or totally bone dry lanes, this ball will probably be in play. Plus it has a super cool color scheme, name, and logo. Very aesthetically pleasing.

    On the downside, it's not exactly the most forgiving ball, at least in my experience. Misses in tend to not hold super well and go through the face. Misses out are a little better. It'll climb back from the gutter for a makeable spare okay, but it'll leave its share of washouts too.

    Overall, I feel like this would make a good addition to many bowlers' bags, and would recommend at least giving it a chance.

    Great ball for when lanes dry up alittle

    I've recently switched jobs and now only bowling one day a week and my speed has increased a lot so the Villain for me is a great later game ball for when lanes dry up a tad bit. And since my switch to all balls Motiv, my average has jumped back up into the high teens low 220's. I got my carry back

    This ball is one of a kind!!!

    I have been bowling for many many years now and obviously have tried several brands. This ball is the first Motiv ball I have tried, I bowled a 300 within my first year of owning this ball. I would recommend this ball to anyone I can only speak from a left handed perspective but if you need a smooth rolling great reacting ball for a decent price point this is the one for you.

    Great for medium heavy

    My favorite ball when there is medium heavy oil lane in sports conditions. It has a very good reaction and carry.
