Fatal Venom

Item Number: MTVBVMFTL

$229.9994 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.

    Game 3, break out the Fatal

    Lanes drying out? Need to go a little longer than the Shock? Need to get past that carry down when you're a little tired?

    This Fatal Venom has worked great for me when that's what I've needed. Fresh conditions... not my first choice. Can you or Could you...sure... but there are other better choices, Shock, Coral, etc. BUT... before I put my size 10.5 in my mouth. That's on the conditions I've thrown it. House shot and a few Sport shots. It's not my first ball out. Could there be a condition some day... Possibly, but I don't see this ball as "that" spot in my bag.

    This ball is clean through the front part of the lane, and for me has a slight delay when reading the friction, I can get it down the lane a little farther past most of the carry down, then it turns and drives. Because of this "delay" for me, It needs to see the friction a touch earlier than some of my other gear. So a worn shot when things are starting to pull up high, I can grab this and keep going.

    Open bowl, my second game throwing the Fatal Venom was a 279. (dang 10 pin) That's pretty tough to argue in my book.

    Now it does have its limits where it will burn up and lose energy, But to me that just says it's the wrong condition for that ball at that time. And really, that's super beat conditions, where I'm balling down to my Purple Tank or stepping farther in and grabbing my Supra.

    Something Different

    This Fatal Venom is something different. When this ball first came out I bought one and drilled it pin up, 4x25 if I remember right, and I couldn't stand it. I eventually sold it because I just didn't match up with it.

    Fast forward to a couple months ago where I came into this Fatal Venom which is pin down and I get along with it very well. It's one of those balls that just gives me a different look than anything else I have.

    Such a great ball. Since the house I bowl in is very dry later on when the lanes get scorched, this ball is so good. Shot my 4th 300 with it and I was so proud of myself for buying this ball.

    Go to for dry conditions

    This ball is amazing! I love that I drilled it pin down for added length on drier lanes. It also is a good ball for ten pins. I play this ball outside and inside.
