I've never had another Asym with as much continuation as this ball, it literally never quits.
Got this ball back when it first came out and I loved it. extremely smooth and reliable reaction down lane. I would even start with this ball in leagues sometimes and just ball down once it starts getting too strong. I took a break starting in 2019 and just started back up this year and it's still a great ball even after just sitting in my bag for years. It is so reliable and I see myself getting another when this one just starts to die on me.
As I look to update my bag more and more, I will only be looking at Motiv!
I've had this ball since its release and it's still the first ball I throw most league nights. On patterns where there is very little oil outside and my breakpoint is around the 5 board, I find the ball tends to run out too early and leaves flat tens every shot. When I move my line in to break in heavier oil on those patterns, the ball carries well. It's not the most versatile ball for dry conditions but it breaks well in the oil, which is why I bought this ball and have been using it almost every night.
Bottom line: if you tend to roll on drier patterns then this is not the ball for you, but if you have heavier you can play, then this ball lives up to the "heavy oil" designation.
This ball bends the corner very smooth, almost deceptively smooth and has a good amount of miss room to work with. It handles medium to lighter oil (contrary to popular belief) very well and will go as far inside as you need to be. This ball is the perfect compliment to the Black Venom as a ball down. It's not angular at all but again just has a nice smooth continuous motion to kaboom-ville.

I recently got back into bowling after a year away from it. I bought this ball and instantly improved my average by 15 pins. Best ball I've thrown and I look forward to adding more Motiv equipment to my arsenal.
