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.

    10/13/2023 Fatal Venom Pin Kill

    I shot big games with my Fatal Venom while I've had this ball, but either transition or timing got in the way of stringing good games together in a single night. Well, last night 10/13/2023 my Fatal Venom made my first 800 series, 269, 277, 269 seems really easy to achieve. Got Motivated!

    Fatal Venom

    The Fatal Venom has been a great ball when the lanes start to break down. Usually by the third or forth game when my other equipment is just too much. I will bring out the Fatal Venom and can Usually finish very well. This is definitely a ball that needs to be in your bag. Even if you're just looking for something with a lot cleaner finish on the backend. This ball has a really smooth finish when say my Blue Coral is coming in a little to strong on the back end. I would really recommend adding the Fatal Venom to your arsenal.

    Great ball

    This is my 2nd ball from Motiv. (1st is Jackal Ambush) Had this ball now for almost 1 month so figured enough time has passed for me to get used to it. VERY 1st game out of the box I bowled a 237 with it. Ball is very good on dryer lanes. Now I just need to fill in the gaps on my balls.

    Fatal Venom

    The Fatal Venom is a great ball because it is much smoother on the back end when the lanes start to go away. When the oil is very light and or the friction is much higher, this is my go-to ball. If the bowling center that you are bowling at does not use a lot of oil, the Fatal Venom is the ball I would recommend. Hope this helps to make a decision on your next bowling ball.
