Fatal Venom

Item Number: MTVBVMFTL

$179.9944 Read Reviews


The Fatal Venom™ provides a deadly combination of length with an angular strike on light-medium oil conditions.  It features the latest MOTIV® cover technology and the outstanding original Gear™ core from the Venom™ Shock.

The Gear™ core gives the Fatal Venom™ both low RG and low differential so it spins super-fast with minimal track flare.  The result is a stable ball motion with massive energy retention. 

Utilizing the latest Infusion™ Pearl Reactive cover, the Fatal Venom™ offers great length and angularity. These traction characteristics joined with the control of the Gear™ core provide a clean and moderately angular motion that is ideal for scoring on drier lanes. 

When to use:

  • Speed Dominant: For straighter angles on moderately dry lanes.  The Gear core and Infusion combo will allow the bowler to use the pearl to clear the front without sacrificing control down lane.
  • Balanced: A great dry lane benchmark piece.  If you know that there is not a lot of volume on the lane or the lane surface is higher friction, this will be a great first ball out of the bag.
  • Rev Dominant: When the most angular balls in the product line are too much down lane, the Fatal Venom will be the go-to option.

    Great Ball for later in the blocks

    This gave me exactly what I was looking for in the later games of blocks. Drilled 5.75 pin to pap just above middle finger. This ball allows me to square up in late game blocks and control the pocket when they get tough.

    I would recommend this to a friend

    This ball had a reaction down lane that was totally unexpected. Wham. Fast left angular hook smacking the pocket. I didn’t think this ball would have such a reactive cover. I love it. I was able to use this ball after the first game of league with just a small amount of breakdown.
    Drilled it 50x4x35.

    Controlled Motion. Backend Pop.

    The Fatal Venom is exactly what MOTIV needed in their line up.

    To sum this ball up, it’s like MOTIV took a Venom Shock and mashed it together with a Supra. You get the controlled reaction and continuation of the Venom Shock with the easy clearing of the heads and back end pop of the Supra. This Infusion pearl coverstock pairs extremely well with the Gear core.

    This is one of those balls any tournament or league bowler is going to have in their bag almost every single day.

    Don’t pass it up.

    Follow up to initial review

    I wrote my 1st review of the Fatal Venom after using it on one league. 2 days later I used it on another league in another center and bowled a 549 series. My normal average there is 154. ..definitely not disappointed at all, and as I said before, Motiv will be my go to for bowling needs from this point on...
