Keeping lines in front going straighter is very easy to get a good read on house shots or medium to short sport patterns. Shot 268 the first game I threw with it on a 41 ft house shot. Very smooth through the fronts with a controlled backend if you are trying to play straighter while going more up the back of it, thus lower axis rotation. If you're needing to move deeper later in the series as they open up, this will be a good option if you are able to produce at least 35 degrees degrees of axis rotation to get the corners out. Overall it hits hard for a ball in this category. I can also flatten it out if needed and feel comfortable shooting spares with this ball. The sleek color combos are really fun and make for a great eye appeal when rolling down the lane, I went with the blue and purple! I chose a very simple layout... basically straight up, pin above my ring. I would definitely recommend adding the thrill to your arsenal if you don't have one already.
I bought this for a 2nd shift sport shot not re-oiled so it was a pretty beat up wet dry sometimes very dry situation. The first 3 games out of the box no surface adjustment 257,184,217 so pretty good for a 70 year old once a week bowler. I drilled this pretty strong 70 X 3 3/8 X 20 shorter VAL angle. I have not had a chance to use it since the corona virus has shut down the bowling industry. I am slower speed, high revs so weaker balls for lighter oil and dry lanes work fairly well for me. This will be a ball that I will use on some of the senior and super senior events when bowling returns.
I purchased this ball about a third of the way into the season. I was throwing the Hydra on my Monday night league and was not having any difficulty getting it to the pocket, but was not satisfied with the way it was carrying. On a typical league night I can take my Thrill and play 10 to 5 and just gradually move left as needed. It is by far one of my favorite balls on my arsenal
I am a high school bowler on the varsity team and I needed a new ball this year. I purchased this ball because of how much hook I have on dry lanes and I needed a light oil ball to help my hook decrease. I love this ball and it is one of the most easy balls to control on the lane!
Since having shoulder surgery this past spring to repair 3 tears, I was unsure how or when my bowling season would go! I decided to go to a 14lb. ball vs. my normal 15lb. ball. With surgery just 5 months ago I didn't know how the shoulder would hold up! I bought the 14lb. Thrill knowing that I wouldn't be at normal speed and I have been extremely satisfied with it. Shot a 300 game with it just 2 weeks into the fall bowling season. Love all my Motiv equipment! I will never buy anything else!
