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.

    The Forge Fire

    The layout I used on the Forge Fire is 50x4 3/4x35. This ball will catch peoples' eyes going down the lane! The colors are not the only thing unique about this ball. I was very pleased with how much recovery I had down lane with my misses. This ball is the first ball out of my bag for league on medium to heavier oil house shots. I have always been a fan of lower RG balls with higher diffs. The Forge Fire takes surfaces adjustments really well. I prefer to keep mine at 2000 to make it a little smoother.

    Forge Fire

    I got my my Forge fire 3 weeks ago. Straight out of box after getting drilled I shot 300 with 745 series. Next week shot 675 averaging 236 with the Forge Fire. Fantastic ball.

    This ball is FIRE

    Wow! When I first drilled and threw this ball I saw a similar shape to that I loved growing up as a kid. This ball gets down the lane and has a nice snap motion to the pocket. I can always play deep inside and swing it out to the friction and know it'll snap right back into the pocket. This is the first ball out of my bag in league and it just never seizes to amaze me!

    Keeps up with my ball speed

    This ball keeps up with my ball speed great. For this being a hybrid ball, I wasn't sure how it would fit in my arsenal and this ball has helped me improve so much since I've gotten it.
