Had the opportunity to try this ball at a mega demo days at a local bowling center and was very impressed. It came off my hand very smooth and I had no issues with adjusting when lane conditions were broken down

I have found out from using the Ripcord on medium to light conditions with pin up layout between the fingers with CG about 2.5 from center of span to be continuous through pin deck. I also noticed how the Ripcord responded through oil and once it hit friction on the lane about the last thirty feet, the Ripcord kept moving through the pins in an angular fashion. This ball is very responsive for a symmetrical bowling ball and gives the bowler easy adjustment to ball movement. Gets back to the one three pocket very reasonably. I suggest this ball as a must in your bag between the Venom Shock solid and Venom Shock Pearl.

If you’re looking for a symmetrical ball that you need to count on turning the corner the Ripcord is the ball you’re looking for. A lot of pearl symmetrical ball don’t rev up early enough and squirt past the break point. The Ripcord has easy length with revving late in the midlane with tons continuation on the back easily the sharpest breakpoint out of any Motiv ball I have thrown. I drilled 2; one pin down 4 1/4” pin, which offers moderate control with good shape down lane. The other is pin up 4 ¾” pin and this one is very clean with tons of pop.

I have two Ripcords, both are great balls. One is drilled to go longer, and I have found it to come in handy when lanes are drying out.
I've been throwing Motiv since the beginning( the sx1 days) and have throw everything I can get my hands on. Since I have drilled this ball I haven't been able to put it down. The Ripcord reads the lane like a dream and when it hits friction, is fast off the spot and has such great continuation through the pins. This is a ball that isn't leaving my bag anytime soon and I'd suggest giving it a shot. At least check out your local test drive event and see for yourself you will not be disappointed!!
