Top Thrill - Purple/Red

The brand new MOTIV® Top Thrill™ takes high friction performance to a new level!  This latest advancement for dry lanes offers a boosted core and brand new coverstock, a significant step up from the original Thrill™ models in both core and coverstock technology.   The Top Thrill™ provides bowlers with more options for attacking drier lanes and higher friction lane surfaces.  

Developed as a dry lane complement to the Infusion™ reactive cover, the Turmoil™ XP  shell provides as much down lane shape with less traction in the oil to allow for use on dry lanes.  When Infusion™ reactive balls are too strong, the Top Thrill™ will be a great option for even the most competitive bowlers.  

The Flux™ core in the original Thrill™ is replaced in the Top Thrill™ with a modified Halogen™ core previously found in higher performance Motiv® bowling balls.  The new Halogen™ V2 has a slightly higher RG than the original with a lower differential.  The Halogen™ V2 is uniquely suited for dry lanes, but with a strong enough core to allow for more angles of play and significantly more versatility in drilling options. 

When To Use:

Speed Dominant Bowlers:  When speed dominant bowlers encounter conditions so scorched that they need a dry lane ball, it’s important to have one that is developed for performance.  The Top Thrill is developed to provide shape on dry lanes, not just deliver at the cheapest price or just be the prettiest ball on the wall.

Balanced Bowlers: For balanced bowlers, a dry lane ball is an important part of a tournament arsenal. Low volume oil patterns and high friction surfaces necessitate balls with higher rg’s and lower differentials.  The Top Thrill is designed to fit in a competitive bowler’s progression just below the Venom and Supra line.

Rev Dominant Bowlers: For bowlers with exceptionally low speed or high rev rates, the Top Thrill allows manageable angles on normal house patterns and sport shots.  A rev dominant bowler so often is forced to play much deeper with steep angles even on house shots due to their ball speed to rev rate ratio.  The Top Thrill solves that problem.

    Amazing ball

    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 :)

    Get Both Colors!

    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!

    Surprised by its performance

    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.

    Amazing dry lanes ball

    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.

    Surprising strength

    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.
