Prepare to be shocked by the unstoppable force of the MOTIV EVOKE – a ball that refuses to be overlooked. This all-new solid asymmetrical powerhouse demands your attention. Featuring vibrant colors, a revolutionary new core design, and the next evolution of an already triumphant coverstock system; the EVOKE is here to dominate heavier concentrations of oil.

Introducing the ferocious Overload Core, a dynamic asymmetrical marvel engineered to fill a strategic gap in the Motiv Bowling arsenal. Nestled between the formidable Predator V2 core of the Jackal series and the dominant Dominion core found in the Pride lineup, the Overload core hits the sweet spot tailored for the challenges of medium-heavy oil conditions. 

What makes this core so special is that it boasts the ability to change the differential with drilling by up to 25%, while also offering drilling options that will lower the differential. No previous MOTIV core could lower the differential of a drilled ball.  While many bowlers look for the most differential possible when drilling a ball, rev dominant bowlers are usually limited by the increased diff of drilled balls. As an upper-mid core that must be versatile, the Overload core is the perfect option for offering so much versatility. 

Paired with the Overload core is the new Leverage MXC Solid Reactive coverstock. This cutting-edge shell blends the renowned Leverage coverstock technology from the Black Venom with the aggressive components of the Forge Flare. This combination ensures superior traction in even the most challenging high-oil environments.

This cover features the new cutting-edge DuraMax Technology—an innovative additive meticulously crafted to prevent lane-shine, extending the lifespan of the coverstock. DuraMax technology ensures that the Evoke will consistently maintain its finish at a significantly longer rate without breaking down, refusing to succumb to wear and tear. With DuraMax, the Evoke becomes a beacon of resilience, outlasting expectations and guaranteeing an enduring performance.

Get ready to experience a new era of domination on the lanes with the Motiv Evoke.

WHEN TO USE:

  • Speed Dominant Bowlers - Speed dominant bowlers need traction on the lane to repeat with confidence.  However, there had previously been a large gap between the Jackal Ambush and the Pride Dynasty when trying to stay in slow response asymmetrical balls.  The Evoke is the perfect bridge between these two balls and a critical part of the progression for a speed dominant bowler.
  • Balanced Bowlers - Balanced bowlers will use the Evoke as a first ball out of the bag on lower friction lane surfaces.  With a coverstock that is easier through the front than a Jackal Ambush, but with a more substantial footprint on the lane than the balls in the line created for medium oil, the Evoke is a great benchmark for bowlers on higher concentrations of oil or on lower friction synthetic lane surfaces.
  • Rev Dominant Bowlers - A rev dominant bowler can use the Evoke as their heavy oil control ball without any need for more traction or control.  The Motiv Evoke will easily serve as a rev dominant player’s strongest asymmetrical ball in the bag and give them the traction and smooth response to friction needed on challenging or heavy oil conditions.

    Motiv knocking it out of the park yet again!

    60x4x40

    Gets through the fronts very clean, has a mean and predictable backend, and continuous through the end of the pindeck! For me personally, this is a ball for later in a block when you need to move a little further in and need something not lazy and with enough of a kick to keep getting out those corner pins! This ball will be a very tough piece to one-up!

    Evoke Honest Ball Review

    Let me first of say this is the first Motiv ball I have drilled in over 10 years. The colors of this ball got me with the eye appeal and I was lucky enough to personally drill this bowling ball up before the release date. Now onto the review.

    I drilled this pin above the bridge with the mb kicked 1 1/2 away from the center of my thumb. I decided to throw this after the league so there was some carry down, nonetheless the ball is very strong. The problem with that is the cover tends to burn up too fast and you have to try an tame it a bit; so I hit it with a 3,000 aberlon pad and it seemed to do the trick.

    Decided to use it in a league I subbed in and didn't like the reaction by anymeans with the cover at 3,000. Before my league on Sunday morning I used a worn out 360 pad ( yes you are reading this right, a 360 pad ) and then polished the ball. Now I am getting the motion I want to see. The ball clears the heads, while storing the energy and packs a mean punch. Shot 744 with the ball after some cover modifications, I can't be mad by anymeans.

    I would give the ball a 5 star review, but due to cover alterations that impacted how I graded this. The ball is uploaded to my Tik Tok if you want to see the layout for yourself. @Deuce300 is my tiktok. I'm not saying to not get this ball, but at least know that this is a very strong cover and it will want to roll way too early for you.

    AMAZING VERSITILITY

    LOVE THIS BALL. GREAT CONTINUATION THROUGH THE PINS. WE CAN PLAY IT A NUMBER OF DIFFERENT ANGLES AND STILL GETS BACK TO THE POCKET FOR 10 BACK.

    A COUPLE OF US THROW IT, DOWN AND IN WORKS OR FROM THE 40 BOARD WITH THE BIG SWING AND IT STILL HITS HARD. LOVE THIS CORE / COVER COMBO

    Strengths
    Evoke is smoother than Jackal Ambush and is more angular than the Pride Dynasty and Black Venom.
    Evoke provides slow and heavy traction in the oil while, in terms of overall length it has more than Jackal Ambush.
    Evoke provides a strong downlane continuation that results in more versatility on a variety of patterns, the exception being server burn.
    Weaknesses
    I wouldn’t encourage you to use Evoke on drier conditions, MXC needs oil to feed.

    Summary
    The combination of Overload, Leverage MXC, and color scheme is what makes Evoke extremely attractive. MXC has always provided me with traction and teeth in the oil, and I expected nothing less from Evoke. In the event that you desire a rounder shape at the breakpoint to that of Jackal Ambush, I would encourage you to evoke greatness and look at Evoke.
    Your Game will thank you for it.

    Evoke

    The new MOTIV Evoke is the latest addition to stronger asymmetrical solids to MOTIV's line. The new Evoke features the brand new Overload core and uses the Leverage MXC cover. This core/cover combo allows the Evoke to read the middle part of the lane strongly and still maintain continuous motion downlane. This ball will definitely be a ball to use on fresh heavier conditions.
