Let’s start out by saying this ball is the perfect release by Motiv for the ball chart. Pairing the Ghost cover with the Forza SS core is a genius move by Motiv bowling. The Assassin is the perfect step down from your Ghost or the Trident Abyss when they're a bit too strong for your liking. From what I’m seeing so far from this piece is the earlier, smoother roll, with awesome punch when it gets to the pin deck. It also gives you incredible control and is a perfect benchmark you can trust in multiple situations. Yet another sweet release from Motiv bowling that I expect big things from. Once against Motiv keeps raising the bar in bowling with every release.
The new Rogue Assassin gives you an earlier, stronger and smoother reaction comparative to the Rogue Blade. This ball is a great benchmark to use on a variety of conditions and is strong enough to use as a stepdown to the Jackal Ghost or Trident Abyss. This ball has great continuation through the pins and is great at surface changes. This ball is also great for the price as it is at a medium price point. Comparative to the Forza SS, the Assassin is a little quicker response and is slightly stronger in overall hook. For me, it is a type of ball that will stay in my bag for all type of house and sport patterns.

Genius…Ghost cover combined with the same weight block that was in the Forza SS…This created a slower response Forza SS and gives me a predictable and controllable ball reaction down lane. This is a great bench mark ball on medium oil conditions and gives me less overall hook than the Jackal Ghost.
I really liked the Rogue Blade and getting something similar but with earlier hook was a dream come true. The Rogue Assassin is very controllable and predictable down lane with great continuation as well. Seeing earlier hook with energy down lane is great for me with my speed.
