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.

    All the Way Up!

    45 x 5 ½” x 35

    Showcasing dry lane performance at a ‘top’ level, the new Top Thrill is an enhanced, all-new technology successor to the original Thrill. Needing a lighter-oil compliment to the Infusion technology, the new Turmoil XP coverstock (finished at 5500 LSP) was created to produce exceptional length with good response to friction to play those ‘burnt’ conditions. To further enhance this ball’s motion, the Halogen V2 core (2.59 RG, .023 Diff) was developed to provide control and predictability for all the downlane motion.

    Knowing that my Fatal Venom, with a 5” pin, can go late into a block, I laid my Top Thrill out with a 5 ½” pin to create even more length for when I encounter those exceptionally scorched patterns. The motion I get out of this ball is exactly what I was looking for in a drier lane piece. Gliding down the lane looks like an effortless task for this Thrill, seemingly floating through the thinner parts of oil to get to the right and the carved-out track. Once the friction is found, the motion the ball makes towards the pocket is controlled and predictable. By having a clean but controlled ball reaction later in day, the pocket is much easier to find and those crazy ‘designer’ leaves become much less frequent. Given what the Top Thrill is designed for, it is not meant for fresh shots or even the first transition out-of-box for all but the most rev-dominant of players. So far I have found this rock shining its brightest when I get beyond game five in any given block, and usually even that point may be a bit early. Clean projection, predictability, and consistency; those are what the Top Thrill brings to your arsenal for those critical late games when you need a true friction buster.
