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.

    My go-to and maybe the GOAT...

    What can I say... If you are looking for a benchmark ball, the description from Motiv isn't wrong. I have never had as much confidence in a bowling ball as I do my Pride. The strong cover lets it read the lane early and the core rips it back on the backend and just destroys the pins. A few weeks ago, my Pride took some damage at the bowling center, leaving some pretty big gashes in the track. Without a second thought I ordered another Pride to fill that spot in my arsenal. This is truly a great ball with a nice even shape down the lane. 6 ball arsenal = Mythic Jackal, Sky Raptor, Trident Odyssey, Pride, Venom Shock, Fatal Venom

    Advertises Exactly what it does!

    I'm not the most experienced when it comes to bowling. (Just yet)
    I have found this ball excels when the heavy oiled lanes start to depreciate on your typical house shot. I rolled 7 strikes in a row, 5 late game, and 2 starting the following game in my latest bowling session.

    The core definitely delivers the power through the pins. (I use a 14lb ball)
    And the cover stock has been holding nicely with on 1 very minor scratch after 30 games of use.

    I would definitely recommend this for its intended purpose. Med/ Heavy oil lanes.

    This ball is great. It doesn't matter if it is on a sport shot or house shot. This ball controls the pocket and gives me miss room unlike other balls. This is an amazing ball.

    I want to love it

    I want to love it, but I can't.

    For me the ball is VERY over under.

    It's drilled 45x4.5x45 (as I recall, lost the note in my phone when I broke it)

    On a worn house shot (the opportunities I've had to throw it) I can find a solid line and throw a string of strikes. The ball drives great! Then I pull it ONE board into the oil and numerous times I've left left a 5 pin. A 5? Where did the drive go? Then the next ball I oops... and over compensate and toss it wide by a board and the thing comes in like a freight train and leaves me a 9 pin! No drive to all the drive?

    Now... when I'm on, and it's on... man, I enjoy throwing it. But to have to be that "on" to throw it makes it VERY hard for me to pull it out of the bag when I have 10 other Motiv balls that I can grab.

    I saw a video that JR Raymond did and was told to try a different drilling for some of his Motiv stuff. In that video he saw positive results. I may give that a try on mine. If that works, I'll be back to report those results and change this review.
