This was my first ball in this year. It is a great ball, and the hook is smooth
I purchased a new Venom Cobra late last season and shot 750 with it the first night out of the box. This ball is the strongest ball I have in my arsenal and out hooks even my Jackal Rising by five boards plus. We drilled it with a high pin layout to maximize the back end reaction and when it leaves the oil at the five board 40 feet down lane it consistently hooks and rolls up into the pocket without any unexpected under or over reaction. I left the cover stock at the out of box finish and this is one of the few balls I have ever had that has never been altered for surface finish to tweak the reaction. Keep it clean and roll it the same every time and this thing absolutely destroys a rack of pins. Great ball and I am sold on Motiv after buying this one. Ebonite can kiss my behind goodbye forever.
This ball looks for the friction and when it finds it turn signal and bye bye pins
I used my son's Venom Cobra one day when we went bowling. My son is a Junior Gold qualifier, and we were in Detroit this past year. So needless to say, we bowl a lot together. We are on a league together and have done father son tournaments together. I use a dieters intrigue right now, but have been looking for a more responsive ball. I used my son's Motiv Venom Cobra one day and “WOW” what a difference in response. I used it for the rest of the evening and shot one of my best games. Motiv will be the top pick for my next ball.
Honestly this has been the best ball I’ve thrown on the THS I throw on in league. If I would have known this ball was so good on the THS I would have bought 2.
