Venom Shock

Item Number: MTVBVSPPS

$174.99209 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.

    Best ball of all time

    Owned a venom shock back in 2015 and it was my favorite ball. Took a break from bowling for 6 years and recently got back into it. Had a venom shock drilled and I’ve shot 6 200+ games in 2 weeks. This ball is the best ball ever made. Even if you miss your spot the venom shock finds a way to strike. There’s a reason why this ball has been around for 10 years! #MotivNation

    I wish I could give this ball 6 stars.

    I have owned three of these now. It's by far the most versatile ball in the Motiv line up. If you are just starting to get into the "pro" balls, this should be your first. If you have been buying motiv balls and don't own this ball, GO BUY IT. if you bowl fast and up the back, this ball will turn over on its own. If you really rip on this ball, it will play on any pattern, with the absolute most consistency I've ever had out of any ball.

    Venom Shoxk

    In 2018 I got my first Motiv, the Jackal Ghost. Since that year I have not and never will throw anything other than Motiv. The whole line is so versatile and strong I would be silly to throw anything else. Well I figured since it's one of the longest running balls on the market I should probably get one of these Venom Shocks. (It's popular for a reason) It did not disappoint. The ball is so versatile. Ended up shooting 815 my 3rd night running league with it. Whether you're an experienced vet or brand new to bowling, the Venom Shock will be a go to for anyone looking at a new ball for years to come!
    GET THE VENOM SHOCK! It will not disappoint!

    Best purchase ever

    I have always been a die hard Storm ball user and bought a Venom on a whim to give Motiv a try. Best change ever not sure if it’s the core or the cover but my scores have improved tremendously. Already looking for my next ball to complement this ball.

    Great ball

    The Venom Shock was the first ball I ever bought and it is by far at the very top of the list of great bowling balls. I find it to be very versatile, and easy to control. If you're a beginner I highly recommend you get this ball because you won't be sorry.
