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.

    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.

    Absolutely love this ball!

    Picked up a new Forge Fire in December at a test drive. And I gotta say, this ball has taken me places I couldn’t imagine I would achieve for a long time. I’m 14 and have been bowling for 5 years and this ball recently got me a 259 as well as a 257 just last week. I love this ball so much and would definitely recommend it to everyone.

    Recently picked this up to replace my aging United Revolt and it does not disappoint. Great balance of length and shape and doesn't jump when encountering friction.

    Forge Fire

    This one is something special! It features a continuation of the Infusion Hybrid Reactive coverstock that was seen on the RipCord. It provides a more angular motion and quicker response to friction. This coverstock teamed up with the Forge Fire’s symmetric weight block brings a new look compared to the previous Forge. For me, the Forge was a much earlier ball and something I could use to start on medium-heavy oil patterns. The Forge Fire is my transition ball when friction starts to develop and before I need to go to something weaker.
