The new Forge™ Fire brings the heat to the medium-heavy oil Forge™ line.   Featuring the new Infusion™ Hybrid Reactive coverstock, the Forge™ Fire has a much faster response to friction than the original Forge™.  This eye popping low rg/high differential symmetrical piece is a must have for people looking to stand out and strike!

The Infusion™ coverstock, previously used on the RipCord is an incredibly angular hybrid shell.  Bowlers reported creating more angle with the Ripcord™ than any ball previously manufactured by MOTIV® Bowling.  Now, we are offering this shell with a much lower radius of gyration and a substantially higher differential using the Detonator™ core.  The combination of an angular cover with a fast-spinning, high differential core is a ball that can create angle in high concentrations of oil. 

Bowlers who are speed dominant will be able to use the Forge™ Fire to create angle when friction begins to develop.  This larger core in the Forge Fire allows speed dominant bowlers to see the shapes that other players have with high rg cores. Rev dominant players who like to create angle will be able to do so with this ball earlier in the block or on higher concentrations of oil than they can normally use fast responding coverstocks due to the added traction from high flare and control of a low RG core.  Balanced bowlers can expect the Forge™ Fire to perform best on medium-heavy oil patterns when they need to create angle, but cannot “ball down” into truly skid/flip bowling balls.

    Easy Revving/very angular

    I have two of these to do two different things.
    My pap is 4 3/4" right by 5/8" up, my axis rotation is 15°> and my axis tilt is 10°^. I measured all this off an alpha jackal drilled 60° x 5" x 30°. This ball will also be used later for a comparison.

    Ball number 1. Drilled 4 1/4" x 70°
    For my specs this is a pin under ringer finger. Not recommended for the higher track players. You have been warned. For sport patterns, This ball is used primarily to open the lanes up with a straighter trajectory to the breakpoint. If you cant friction, this ball creates it.
    The specs after throwing the ball show it flared 3" in the oil and a good 5" plus on the dry. The ball laid the core on its side about half way down the lane and showed a continuous motion into the dry followed by even more continuation until rolling off the pin deck. Simply put. It was looking for the 8-pin.
    Compared to a short pin layout on an alpha jackal (90° x 2" x 25°), the fire grabbed the lane sooner and continued with a visibly stronger angle at the breakpoint. It flared a whole inch more in the oil showing a bit stronger midlane read. And again the entry angle was visibly stronger. In a way it seemed the alpha jackal's break point was much further down lane and showed milder but continuous motion through the pins.
    Ball #2. Drilled 4 1/4 x 25°
    The pin is about 5/8 above ring finger this time. This ball is insane. A dirty naughty little girl as i call it. It flared 5" in the oil. Rolling end over end for the first 40 feet of the lane. Then it flared a good 3"+ in the dry before it hit the pins. This ball laid the core on its side gradually about 40 ft down and after it did the ball wasn't looking for an 8 pin it was looking for the base of the hill it just rolled down. The motion was insane.
    Compared to an alpha jackal (60° x 5" x 30°). Alpha jackal flares a 1/2" more in the oil and a 1/2 less in the dry. When the core laid down the ball said no mas. Same line with the fire, the ball flared 5" just like before in the oil, but a 1/2 more in the dry. When the core laid down on its side the ball could care less. It continued motion. The angle was stronger than this alpha jackal but it hooked in the midlane about a ft further down lane. But made up for it in a big way.

    Anyways these two layouts are two of my favorite.
    Again the pin down ball is not recommended for the higher track players. That ball is going to replace my villain scorn drilled with the same last two measurements in the layout.
    Both balls i would favor most on heavy oil conditions that are at least 40ft down the lane. If you are planning on playing more direct but want a bigger hit in the pocket, this ball would look great with a short pin layout (2" x 20-30°) But only on heavier oil volumes.
    Use wisely and enjoy the power the forge fire gives the hand that wields it.

    Forge Fire

    Great ball, just what I needed to update my aging arsenal. Had exactly the movement I was looking for on a medium oil house shot. Also lets me swing across the lane more when it begins to dry out. I never have to worry about it not grabbing at the friction point. Delivers great drive thru the pocket and fantastic finish thru the backend.
