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.

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.
The layout I used on the Supra is 55-4 ¼-25. This ball is very clean through the fronts with plenty of angle downlane. When the lane starts to dry out, and you need to open up your angles the Supra is the ball to go to. I will be using this ball a lot in tournaments when I need to get left and open up my angles to the friction but still have enough downlane motion to get the corners out.
This ball was created to push the limits in the MOTIV line of bowling balls. The MOTIV Supra is capable of more down lane motion than any other MOTIV ball ever created for light-medium oil. It features a modified Impulse weight block, made famous by the Primal Rage, in combination with the Infusion Pearl Reactive cover stock. The Infusion cover provides ease of length with a pronounced response to friction at the end of the pattern. It adds to the snap created down lane by the High Impulse core, creating impressive backend reaction and outstanding continuation.
It will be a great fit in your bag on light to medium oil. 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. The Supra will become that ball you can count on when you need length and backend recovery, store it’s energy and continue through the pin deck.
My Supra is laid out pin up (above my ring finger), the cg very slightly shifted to the right (no extra hole). This ball has already found a place in my bag and drives through the pins with easy from any angle. If you are looking for that go to ball that will clear the fronts, recover from what seems like anywhere, has continuation and awesome hitting power. Look no further, you've found it.

The layout I used on the Supra is 55x4x30. If you are wanting a ball that is really clean and really fast off the spot… look no further than the Motiv Supra!! This is a ball that can use on drier lane conditions or when the pattern breaks down. When angles need to be open, this ball can do just that. When the Venom Recoil is leaving flat corners for me, I immediately know I can go to this one, make a small move in, and see those corners get snapped out. This ball WILL store energy for the pins.
The Motiv Supra features the Infusion Pearl Reactive Cover wrapped around the High Impulse core. This cover is a pearl version of the Infusion cover used on the Ripcord and Forge Fire (Two of my favorite balls in my bag right now). The Infusion Pearl cover is marketed to be clean with tons of backends. I went pin above my ring finger which is the same layout as my Ripcord.
For me, Motiv delivered on their word and created a beast of a ball in the backends. The Supra is significantly cleaner through the fronts and gives me more back end motion than my Ripcord which is perfect for when the Ripcord is too strong. My first time throwing the Supra was during a 4-gamer and was the only ball I threw games 2-4. I was able to create more angle than anyone on the pair. To compare, I moved about 3-4 boards right off my Recoil, and 2 boards right off my Ripcord. This is a great option when the lanes burn up and you’re looking for something to get down the lane without worrying if it’ll over hook or be too weak to come back. This is a great combo with something like a Blitz, Recoil, or Venom Shock for league.
