Introducing the MOTIV® Supra™, a ball created specifically to push the limits.  Combining an extreme, dual density core with a sideways pearl reactive cover, the Supra is capable of more down lane motion than any MOTIV® ball ever created for light-medium oil.

The Impulse weight block used in the Primal Rage has proven over the last 8 years that it is both reliable and great for creating sharp down lane motion.  With the Supra™, we modified the design and pushed the limit to create the new High Impulse™ weight block.  It gives the 15# model a 2.57 RG and .050 differential.  The high RG spins slowly through the front part of the lane, retaining energy, while the dual density weight block and high differential take over to produce a violent skid-flip backend reaction. 

Infusion™ Pearl Reactive cover stock adds to the snap created down lane by the High Impulse weight block.  This cover provides ease of length with a pronounced response to friction at the end of the pattern.  Utilizing technology from the RipCord and Forge Fire, the Infusion™ Pearl Reactive cover is the first pearl version in this cover system, offering greater length and more angle.

    Special intentions for special occasions

    My pap was measured at 4 3/4 > x 5/8^. Axis rotation is 20° and axis tilt is 10°. My rev rate is 475 and average speed is 16mph. This was all measured off a covert tank drilled 4" x 20°. This ball, like the supra are both gonna be used with special intentions for special occasions.
    First off this test review was conducted on a modified 35ft older pba pattern with 25ml of flat oil.
    My original intentions for the supra was to use it for shorter oil patterns. So i chose to layout this particular beauty with a short pin. (2" x 40°) this layout puts the core down on its side from the moment you release it. When you play shorter patterns your target is gonna be closer to the gutter. And some times you need a ball to hook better in front of the pins instead of halfway down the lane.
    Now today's competition's natural instinct is use urethane. Most of them only for the first few games. I agree, because it works. But, it only works to a point. When my urethane ball finally says I'm done, I'm not reading the lane anymore, i wont hook when you tell me to. The ball is done. Until you re-sand it. Normally takes about 2 games for me to really notice that's happening.
    Here's the remedy after it does happen. With the same flare potential as the covert tank, because of the 2" pin layout, and the added roll the supra brings, because of its reactive coverstock, the supra picks up where the covert tank left off and died.
    I threw about 20 shots with urethane on one lane just to get the lane worn in like the most common scenario on shorter patterns at tournaments. The oil pushed down the lane and i had to move my feet 5 boards right and my target right off the gutter at the breakpoint with the covert tank. Not the most comfortable place to play. I then threw a couple shots with the supra at the original starting point after the lanes pushed the oil down. The ball over reacted enough where a couple boards left with my feet made things better. From then on, the ball was right at home. Carry down from urethane was never an issue and the ball wouldn't hook half way down from friction thanks to the short pin layout.
    On the other lane, same oil pattern but unused. I started with the supra and wanted to use the same line and angle i used braking in the first lane with the covert tank. Yeah that didn't happen. The reaction was much stronger than the covert tank and the roll off the pin deck showed way less deflection. I had to move 3 boards left with my feet at the least from the beginning. My best line was over 9 10 11 at the arrows and anywhere between 3 and 6 board at the breakpoint. Where as the covert tank i was over 4 5 6 at the arrows and between 3 and 6 board at the breakpoint until the ball died and i had to move further right with it.
    Alternating between lanes i noticed my lines and angles while using the supra were coming closer together it seems.
    I really like what i chose to do with this ball and it out performs its close urethane relative. Again it's being used with special intentions for special occasions. The ball has already paid for itself.
    If you have a low track and fewer revs you're gonna love it with a more versatile layout (4 x 35°). The ball wont over jump on you. If you're a 2mph super senior, refer to above text to get your ball down the lane farther and with less effort. Great ball for short oil. Another perfect cover/core combo.

    A gift from the BOWLING GODS!!!!

    I LOVE THIS BALL!!! If my Covert Tank wasn't amazing enough. This Supra that I won from Motiv (thank u guys so so so so so very much) hits even harder! It fits perfectly with my Covert Tank. Smooth through the front, turns left n the sound of JOY!!
    I hit my season high series with my Covert Tank when I got it back in Jan 663. Today, 721 <------ !!!!!!!!!! with my Supra. I've now convinced my other 4 teammates to make Motiv their next ball purchase. And I didn't even say one word to them, just bowled lol Love it!! I believe I'll hit my first 300 before end of season for sure, LEGGO!!

    Layout: 70 x 4 3/4 x 40
    PAP: 4 3/4 x 3/4 up

    This ball is fantastic. As a brand new staff player to the Motiv brand, I feel I am off to great start and it happened with the Supra. I utilized this ball on the Mark Roth pattern in our Sport League and the very 1st game out of the box…298!! I finished the night 779 and was nothing short of astounded by this ball's performance. Very nice through the fronts and early mid-lane…nice predictable move on the back-ends with no surprises. I truly believe this is a must have for your arsenal.

    Supra Good, Supra Angular!

    5.75x35 @Box Finish

    This core and I have gotten along very well for a long time, since the Remix was one of my favorite pieces of all time, so seeing a higher rg version wrapped around a fast response cover is beautiful. With this ball and layout, I find myself able to play steep angles on lower volume/burnt patterns with relative ease. This ball is one that will probably stay in my tournament ball though.

    5.25x35 @4000 grit

    I loved the shape that I got from the first one, but with that cover and drilling, it was far too condition specific, so i drilled one slightly stronger and knocked the shine off and immediately found it a place in the bag for house shots. I find this one to be a perfect compliment to my Shock when the condition forces me left enough that the Shock can't corner hard enough, this Supra gets the job done. I can go as far left as I want on a house shot, and as long as I have the friction, it's going to come roaring back.

    Depending on what you're looking for, I'd recommend layouts similar to one of those.
