Versatility. Continuation. With a brand-new core and cover stock, the Pride™ from MOTIV® is the designed to be the perfect benchmark piece.  Unique from anything currently available from MOTIV®, the Pride™ fits perfectly into the medium oil position of the ball guide.

The new technology at the heart of the Pride™ is the Dominion™ core.  It has specifications that place it between the Gear™ APG and the asymmetrical cores seen in the Trident™ and Jackal™ series.  These unique asymmetric specifications leverage the physics of the Dominion™ core so the Pride™ can be used on moderate volumes of oil and higher friction than the typical asymmetric bowling ball. 

Additionally, now that weight holes are illegal in competition, the asymmetric Dominion™ core will enable players to control ball motion more than most symmetric cores.  MOTIV® Tour Rep, Brett Spangler, said, “What’s so cool about this core to me is that I never felt like I was throwing an asym.  I get the versatility of the asymmetrical core, but the Pride™ never wanted to go too forward down lane or glue up too much in the front.  To have the versatility of an asym without some of the traditional drawbacks is incredible.”

The Dominion™ core is encased with the latest reactive Coercion™ cover stock from MOTIV® called UCS – Ultimate Continuation Solid.   It was created by providing more length and more angle to the existing Coercion™ MXC cover technology.  This new UCS Reactive cover stock is the most versatile Coercion™ shell to date and complements the unique specifications of the Dominion™ core perfectly.   

Speed Dominant Bowlers

Bowlers with higher speed or lower rev rates benefit greatly from asymmetrical cores.  Providing versatility in drilling and the ability to limit the skid phase for bowlers who struggle to get the ball to slow down is a massive plus. 

Balanced Bowlers

For balanced bowlers this is the centerpiece to their arsenal.  The Pride is the first ball out of the bag and the one used most often.  The controllable core and cover combination allows balanced bowlers to use the Pride on a variety of surfaces and concentrations of oil.  The easily tuned Coercion UCS Cover can also be shined or scuffed to allow an even broader window for balanced bowlers to use the Pride.

Rev Dominant Bowlers

For many rev dominant bowlers, asymmetrical balls are too strong to use on house shots and moderate oil patterns.  A lower differential and cleaner cover than most asymmetrical solids allows rev dominant bowlers to have an asym in their bag that they can use on many more patterns and higher friction surfaces.

    The Pride

    I purchased the Pride just before Christmas and let me tell you this is a must have for all bowlers. I absolutely love this ball. I now own 4 Motiv bowling balls and each and every one is a winner. They have something for every lane condition. The company has fantastic customer service. Answered all my questions gave me great advice. And made me feel like I’m part of a family

    I would recommend this to a friend

    AMAZING BALL TO ANY ARSENAL

    This ball is incredible!! I have been bowling for almost 2 years now and a few different motiv balls as I grow my arsenal. This ball has been incredible to me. I have scored my highest games and series so far since using this piece and my league average has gone up from 165-170 to 198 since i drilled this up!!

    I would highly recommend this ball to anyone who wants to have a piece that they can rely on with any type of lane condition and is very versatile to change the finish quick and easy

    Stronger Than Its Predecessors!

    I waited a long time for a ball to fill the spot left by the Rogue Assassin, previously held by the Forza SS. Both were amazing pieces I looked to for fresher conditions as they rolled smooth and didn’t need quite the volume of the top tier equipment. I was initially a little disappointed an asymmetrical was placed in this spot in the chart but after rolling multiple Recoils I wasn’t quick to judge.

    I laid out the Pride with a 45x4.375x70 in an attempt to use the asymmetry to get the ball to use more energy early and tumble… Unfortunately the ball is still quite a bit more dynamic to friction than the Rogue and not as smooth as I was hoping for with the same 3000CTD surface prep I used for comparison. Granted fresh covers always hook more. The reaction is very strong rolling through the middle of the lane but still has a kick leftover for friction. I needed to play the Pride deeper inside than the Rogue but due to its strength downlane I had zero concern carrying the corners. Taking the surface down to 2000CTD forced me to play even more in the oil making the breakpoint a little smoother but the backend really straighten out too much. The original 4000 box finish will give you a very nice finish downlane!

    Final thoughts… whether core and/or cover the ball should’ve really gone one spot to the right in the chart. That being said there’s a lot to like here! It’s strong but far from the arcy chuggy shape of Forge Flare. Not sure if I will punch up another, in hindsight I would like a stronger pin position and the PSA in the thumb (70x3.75”x30) to see if the motion can be more continuous. A solid step up from the Shock in shape and will handle more volume. In my bag it will not unseat the Assassin though.

    Motiv Pride Review

    The new Motiv Pride does everything you’d want with a benchmark ball. It’s very versatile and has amazing continuation. The Pride has brand new core(Dominion core) and cover stock. This Pride was designed to be the perfect benchmark piece and it’s exactly that!  Unique from anything currently in the Motiv line. The Pride fits right into the medium oil/smooth position of the ball guide. I can see this ball being used on a lot of various oil patterns.
