The Blue Coral Venom™ is the first ever hybrid asymmetric found in the 10-year history of the Venom™ line. The latest stage of evolution in the wildly successful Venom™ line, the Blue Coral Venom™ focuses on versatility and benchmark reaction for moderately high friction surfaces. An upgrade to the Venom™ Recoil, the Blue Coral Venom™ provides more traction in the oil with a stronger and more continuous down lane motion.

With the Coercion™ MFH Reactive cover, the Blue Coral Venom™ provides plenty of length through the front of the lane, while picking up in the middle of the lane with a smooth and controllable transition. This hybrid cover is remarkable thanks to its ability to provide traction in the oil, without sacrificing control down lane. This performance provides the strength and incredible versatility that the Venom™ line is known for.

Versatility is also what makes the Gear™ APG core special.  Its low differential and asymmetry allow the Blue Coral Venom™ to attack the pins from shallower angles using a more aggressive cover stock.  Originally deployed because weight holes were being eliminated, the slight asymmetry of this core gives ball drillers more options than a typical symmetric design. 

When To Use:

  • Speed Dominant Bowlers: For speed dominant bowlers, this will be a medium dry lane ball for use at shallow angles.  While many balls for medium-dry to dry lanes tend to skip past the break point for speed dominant bowlers, the high performance coverstock on the Blue Coral Venom™ will have no trouble gripping the lane.  Additionally, the Gear™ APG core allows players who like to play straighter to do so with more ease.  This should be a great ball for speed dominant players to play more direct on fairly dry lanes.
     
  • Balanced Bowlers:  Bowlers with speed and rev rate that match will find many uses for the Blue Coral Venom™, due to the versatility it offers.  This Venom™ has more traction in the oil than any before it.  The Blue Coral Venom™ has more traction in oil than the Venom™ Shock, and offers much more control than the Fatal Venom™.  Balanced bowlers will be able to use the Blue Coral Venom™ from a variety of angles on medium to medium-dry lanes when other Venoms™ can’t dig in the oil, but other high performance balls are just too strong.
     
  • Rev Dominant Bowlers:  For rev dominant bowlers the Blue Coral Venom™ is a perfect benchmark ball.  Due to lower speed or higher rev rates, players of this classification often need to “ball down” from what balanced or speed dominant bowlers would use.  While the Blue Coral Venom™ is classified as a medium-dry oil ball, for those who are rev dominant it is a benchmark that offers moderately clean and controllable ball motion.

    Need this Coral Venom in the bag

    I own the Rogue Assassin which smooth ball on the backend. The pro shop owner drilled this Coral Venom to have more angular movement on the backend. The ball travels well through the oil and has energy to finish in the pocket. I played between the third and fourth arrow and delivered 279 244 279 for 802 series. Few weeks later playing much straighter around second arrow bowled 784 series. This ball will not disappoint!!

    It's never to late

    I wish I had bought the Blue Coral Venom before I went to Nationals. I had so much over under I could not find a groove and be consistent. My pro shop rep talked to me about the Blue Coral Venom when I got back. I said ok maybe it's time for a change from Storm & Roto. I have more control and continuation without having to force the ball to and through the break point. I like it!!

    Couldn't help myself

    I picked this ball up from my Pro Shop and walked into a PBA shot Sweeper (Alcatraz) night. I had no idea what to expect, but I couldn't just put it in the bag. I ended up winning the Sweeper that night because of this ball.
    The only other time I've thrown it was also on a more difficult pattern, Big Ben. While I didn't win that one, it was the right ball for me, on that pattern. Spares got me that day.

    This ball is smooth through the oil, and isn't jumpy in the transition. It's as predictable as my Shock. But for me is a number of boards stronger. That makes it a great 1/2 punch. When it starts to get to aggressive, I can go to the Shock and just keep rolling along. Or, I don't need to be afraid of going to the inside because it's still strong enough to handle it.

    Core: Gear APG
    Type: Asymmetrical
    Coverstock: Coercion MFH Reactive
    Box Finish: 4000 Grit LSS

    Strengths
    Blue Coral Venom has the most shape at the breakpoint of all the previous Venom weaponry, although it has a lot of teeth in the midlane the reaction isn’t erratic.
    The hybrid coverstock Coercion MFH Reactive provides reasonable traction in the oil without sacrificing versatility, I found the cover to be useful on both fresh and severely broken down patterns.
    The backend reaction of Blue Coral isn’t as violent compared to Venom Recoil, as strong as the backend reaction it didn’t force me out of my comfort zone.
    Blue Coral fits underneath the Pride and Jackal weaponry in terms of overall hook, bigger than Venom Shock and Fatal Venom. I understand what conditions Blue Coral are meant for however I’ve had tremendous success on heavier patterns as well, the forward roll is produces is contentious.

    Weaknesses
    I wasn’t successful with Blue Coral on extreme friction and extreme volumes, however that is why I have Top Thrill and Jackal Legacy for such occasions.

    Overall Summary
    Blue Coral was created to respond to the friction more reasonably that Venom Recoil, although low flaring weaponry is typically encouraged more so on medium patterns Blue Coral for me was rather versatile. Out of box Blue Coral gave me plenty of hook but it wasn’t as much as bigger weaponry like Ghost and Odyssey, a reasonable asymmetrical option to the symmetrical options of Venom Shock and Fatal Venom.
    I love Blue Coral on transition as much as I do on the fresh, in the event urethane is being too slow or when bigger weaponry is giving off too much motion Blue Coral has enough of a controlled motion at the breakpoint to not give you too much at the breakpoint.
    Should you find yourself in fresh or transitional turmoil I encourage you to look at the versatile Venom Blue Coral.

    Your game will thank you for it .

    Beast

    This ball is a beast to say the least! It has to be one of the most versatile balls I have ever had. This and the Shock are in my bag for a long time to come! If you don’t have it get it!
