This is a great ball for house shot and low oil patterns such as the cheetah or those other pesky low volume sport patterns. Highly recommend adding to your arsenal. I shot my first 700 of the season using the blue and green colored Top Thrill. Also great for picking up some of those pesky spares that you need a little hook to cover. I couldn't ask for a better ball for low volume patterns. Thank you Motiv for designing such a great ball. Motivnation :)
When they first announced this ball I wondered which color way I would go with since I loved the original Thrill(s), but decided I would get both this one and the Blue/Green. Let me tell you I am so glad I did! This is the best ball money can buy! A lot of performance without the heavy price tag of the “high end” balls. Most bowlers wouldn’t be able to tell the difference in reaction between the two out of the box, so I took the shine off my Blue/Green and left this one at box and it’s like I have two completely different, yet amazing balls that didn’t break the bank! Use it on the fresh or the burn, doesn’t matter this ball can do it all. No shortage of versatility here!
This ball surprised me. It’s at the bottom of the chart and I expected it to be fairly weak. But on the lanes I bowl at, which are wood and don’t see much oil volume, this Top Thrill hooks a lot. Mine is hooking quite late and aggressively. So much energy saved for the backend. Just be careful with those angles as it can be steep enough to leave many 10 pins. Used at the right time this ball has been great.
I love this ball on dry lanes. Whenever I'm bowling league and the track is burned, this is my go to ball. Layout: 55x5.5x80. Absolutely a must have in everyone's bag.

I won the Top Thrill in a raffle. I had not been looking to get one but figured since it was a prize I would give it a shot. Man was I shocked at what this ball can do. The house I bowl league in is a Medium-Heavy oil pattern, but the Thrill was still able to get to the pocket. I can play straighter on the higher volume and it just launches itself into the pocket. I tried it in a tournament with light oil and I was standing 35 with eyes on 15 and it did not hesitate to obliterate the pins. I only throw at 14.5 MPH and 320 revs, but the Top Thrill is impressive. Do not under estimate this ball. It is a winner.
