Venom Shock

Item Number: MTVBVSPPS

166 Read Reviews

The new solid purple Venom Shock produces a violent reaction on light to medium oil conditions.  It attacks the lane with the proven Gear™ weight block and new cover technology – Turmoil™ MFS (Medium Friction Solid) Reactive, which is a modified version of the more aggressive shell featured on the Covert Revolt.  This core and cover combination provides a smooth yet angular backend motion that strikes with devastating continuation.   

As far as shelf appeal, the Venom Shock does not disappoint.  The vibrant orange logo really pops off the purple shell.  And, for those that are into glow-in-the-dark bowling, the logos on the ball glow orange and green. 

The Venom Shock really does have it all – performance, looks, and a great price point.  The most shocking thing about this ball may be that you get such outstanding performance at such an affordable price! 

When To Use:

  • Speed Dominant - Bowlers with higher speeds or moderate speed paired with lower rev rates, the Venom Shock is a great option for control in higher friction environments. Late in league nights or on low volume patterns, the Venom Shock shines for speed dominant bowlers.   
  • Balanced - For the balanced bowler the Venom Shock is an absolute must have in the middle of their arsenal.  Balanced bowlers will find that the versatility of the shock allows it to be used in many different volumes and lengths of oil from dry lanes to moderately high volumes of oil.  An added bonus for bowlers who love the Venom Shock is how well it responds to surface changes.  
  • Rev Dominant - Those with revs to spare can use the Venom Shock in many volumes of oil and see outstanding down lane continuation for a ball that is conventionally thought of as a control ball.  A shiny Venom Shock is a staple in the bag of many PBA Touring players who want to create some angle without sacrificing control in later transition.

    I just got back into bowling after stepping away from the game 15 years ago. The Venom Shock was the first new bowling ball I have purchased since the late 90s. This is the best bowling ball I have ever thrown. It goes through the front of the lane nicely and has a killer backend. 688 series right out of the box. I would encourage anyone who is looking for a bowling ball to to start with the Venom Shock and try out other Motiv bowling balls as well. In 1 months time I have went on to purchase the Primal Shock and the Coral Venom as well. Waiting on the release of the Black Venom as well.

    After not bowling for almost 9 years this was the first bowling ball I got for myself and I am overjoyed with how this ball is. This is one of the better bowling balls ever made

    I just recently picked this ball up and I should have bought it sooner. I have been throwing the Primal Shock at one of the two centers I bowl at and it has been absolutely phenomenal, I decided to try out the Venom Shock. I am still newer to bowling and developing/experimenting with my style and have not been disappointed with the Venom Shock at all. I definitely understand why this has been a benchmark ball for so long. Can't wait to continue throwing it and improving!

    Must HAVE!

    If this ball isn't in your arsenal, you are missing out. I needed a ball to catch transition after my Coral wasn't reacting after oil push. This ball cuts and has such a great back end reaction on the dry. Definitely a must have.

    Benchmark Ball

    This is my benchmark ball. I throw this ball first at any house to gauge my line and if I need to go up to the Primal Shock or the Iron Forge or drop down to the Purple Tank or Venom Shock Pearl. I absolutely love this ball, it reads the lane so well.
