Venom Shock

Item Number: MTVBVSPPS

$179.99218 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! 


  • 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.

    Venom Shock is one of the BEST balls ever produced by ANY company

    I have been bowling since I was a very young child. Over the years I have used dozens of different bowling balls produced by literally every brand. Let me just say, it should not come as a SHOCK to anyone who has ever thrown this ball (or seen it thrown), that it is among the most useful, predictable, hard hitting, and versatile bowling balls ever produced. It is almost always my "go to" 1st ball out of my bag. I am a left handed player who would be described as "balanced". With the Shock in my hands, I can play most any condition on any lane surface. I could not recommend the Venom Shock more highly. Over the past couple of years, I know at least a half dozen league and tournament mates that have purchased this ball after seeing how it rolled for me. Motiv....PLEASE never stop producing this ball.....EVER !!

    Best ever!

    layout 60x5x35 Polished.
    What can you say about the best ball ever? not hard to understand why Motiv keeps making them after over 10 years now. You know 9 years more than most. If you ever want to recommend a benchmark ball that people will be glad, they have, then here ya go. Great mid-lane, nice continuous motion. Not jumpy, and always will be a ball in my bag for tournaments. You can see I put polish next to my layout. The only solid I have polished, and it just got better for me. I needed it to get down the lane just a little more and that did the trick. Just get one. Ya know you want one.

    There is a reason why this ball is 10 years old. It's that damn good!
    Just bought this ball and it's working out great as a great ball down option to the Evoke. Strong and powerful! I was totally surprised how much punch this ball packs. Very happy customer!

    The most versatile ball I own

    Add surface in heavier volume to give some better shape, and play deep inside when the lanes break down. It's the ball I always bring with me, especially when going to a new center.
