The Top Thrill line is developed for premium performance on dry lanes.  The latest additions to the MOTIV product line are the Top Thrill Solid and the Top Thrill Hybrid.  These two balls were developed for world class performance on dry lanes.  While others develop “entry level” bowling balls, we at MOTIV focus on premium performance for the varied environments a competitive bowler is likely to encounter.  With peak performance in mind, the new Top Thrill Solid and Top Thrill Hybrid are designed for specific needs expressed by bowlers.

The Halogen V2 core returns for these two Top Thrills as it is perfect for performance in light oil.  It combines a slow-spinning high RG core for easy length and a lower differential to provide 2-3 inches of track flare potential.  The moderately low differential allows for a clear progression within the MOTIV product line, stepping down from balls intended for medium-dry lanes. 

The Top Thrill Solid uses Turmoil XP2 Solid coverstock to provide easy length, yet also a smooth and continuous motion. Additionally, the finish of the Top Thrill Solid is set with performance in mind.  The 4000 Grit LSS finish allows for easy length, but without a violent down lane motion.  Control with resin on dry lanes is the purpose of the Top Thrill Solid.


  • Speed Dominant Bowlers - Speed dominant players will likely use the Top Thrill line when the lanes are very dry or on shorter oil patterns when urethane balls are not an option.  The Top Thrill Hybrid will be most useful when more down lane motion is needed, while the Top Thrill Solid is ideal on shorter patterns.
  • Balanced Bowlers - For balanced bowlers, dry lanes and at the end of long blocks of competition are ideal for the Top Thrill line.  Balanced bowlers competing on a second shift or in tournaments with longer formats will find great use for the Top Thrills.  Often, balanced bowlers find themselves lost after urethane has transitioned lanes.  In those cases, the Top Thrill Solid allows for straighter angles is a great solution.  When the patterns are longer and bowlers want to create more angle, the Top Thrill Hybrid should be used.
  • Rev Dominant Bowlers - For rev dominant bowlers, the Top Thrills are a must in the bag.  The Top Thrill solid is a great option for lower volume fresh patterns where straighter angles are in play and other balls are just too strong for the angles in play.  The Top Thrill Hybrid is an outstanding burn ball for rev dominant bowlers.  While the solid is better on light oil from shallow angles, at the end of the block, the Top Thrill Hybrid will be useful from steep angles.

    Great control ball on dryer lane conditions

    I bought this ball to use as a ball down from Black Venom in a local bowling center that has lighter oil volume and high friction. The Fatal Venom would often be too responsive on these conditions so I asked my PSO if there was anything I could get to smooth out my reaction and the Top Thrill Solid was his recommendation. I used it for games 2 and 3 the night I bought it and it did exactly what I had hoped it would do. I was able to keep control of the pocket for the last 2 games of my set and stay above average on the night. This ball looked great and I'm excited to use it more.

    Motiv Thrill

    The Motiv Thrill is my first Motiv bowling ball. I had been struggling getting my other balls to hook like i wanted them too. My first game with the Motiv Thrill I shot my highest game ever. The Motiv Thrill finishes great. I would definitely recommend this ball to anyone.

    Motiv Thrill

    I purchased the Motiv Thrill for a 10 pin ball. This is an incredible ball for shooting 10 pins. When the lanes start to dry out, the Thrill works really well. I have started using the Thrill as my backup ball in the third frame. During league the lanes went away so much that every other ball in my bag was hooking entirely too much. I used the Thrill and was able to shoot 235 and 237 on the last 2 games of a 6 game set. The Motiv Thrill is by far the most versatile ball in my bag. I would highly recommend the Motiv Thrill to anyone for shooting your corner pins as well as for very light oil conditions.

    Top Thrill Solid

    I have always had trouble with picking up my ten pins. I tried a plastic spare ball, however I can not throw a straight ball. The Top Thrill Solid has proven to be an amazing piece of equipment for me. Since the purchase of the Top Thrill Solid, I have not missed a ten pin. The Top Thrill Solid has also proven to be great when there is just no oil left on the lanes. The house that we bowl league at is known for not having much oil at the end of the night. The top thrill solid has also proven to have a super smooth finish. I would definitely recommend this ball for anyone having problems with ten pins.

    Perfect One-Two Punch

    If you are wanting a ball that is great in breaking down a short or medium oil pattern. The Top Thrill Solid is the ultimate house shot killer!!! Easy to control and easily affordable for everyone. Do not take its entry level as a joke. This ball is stronger than it looks. I went with a high flare layout and was not disappointed in any way. This ball may be the best “entry level” I have ever owned in a while.
