Venom Shock

Item Number: MTVBVSPPS

175 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.

    About Me Looking for a new ball

    Thank you Kasey Uyesugi!

    A couple months back I was looking to get a new bowling ball and I had no idea what I was looking for in a ball. So I asked Kasey if he could help me out and he sure did he said that I was missing a piece for the middle of my bag. He recommended the shock after watching me throw a couple shots. Needless to say it is now my favorite ball and I used it to throw my first 300 game. Now 2 of my friends That I bowl league with also bought one after seeing mine and they are both just as happy. I am already going on to my second one. I just wanted to express my gratitude for Kasey Uyesugi and all his help. THANK YOU KASEY!!

    THE Bowling Ball To Have

    What else can I say about this ball that hasn't been said already? The Venom Shock should be a ball that ANY bowler considers for their bag. It's an amazing benchmark ball that brings an unparalleled amount of versatility to the lane. It rolls great with straighter lines but you can open up the lane with this ball too, I know I don't need to be afraid moving left and swinging the lane with it. It fits perfectly into that medium/light oil range and I often find if I'm starting a series with this ball, I can finish with it as well.

    If you're a Motiv person and don't have one of these, you're doing yourself a disservice. Definitely one of Motiv's greatest pieces of equipment, it being in production for so long is proof enough. I feel comfortable recommending this ball to people just getting started past a beginner ball or someone with plenty of bowling experience.

    House shot? Check.
    Challenge pattern? Check.
    Sports patterns? Check.

    The Venom Shock is good, plain and simple. A reliable benchmark shape, controllable, smooth but never TOO smooth, with the ability to show off some backend bite.

    Get one.

    Amazing ball

    I spent a lot of time deciding what ball to buy. This one not only met all the criteria, but I loved the colors! Venom Shock plays amazing on the lanes. I’m a Motiv fan for life now.

    Great ball

    First thing, I am just an average league bowler. I average around 180. Earlier this year I bought a Venom Shock, and this ball is absolutely great. I can use it on just about any lane condition and it will carry well. By far the most versatile bowling ball I have ever owned. Please don’t ever stop making the Venom Shock.
