The MOTIV Ripcord Flight is an AMAZING companion to the Venom Shock!
The Flight will handle a bit more oil and turn the corner a little better when you need to play a bit deeper. The Oblivion core along with the Turmoil Max Solid cover is a great combination and will allow you to play a lot of angles with this ball!
Polish it up for added length or leave it at box finish for a great benchmark piece. You definitely need this in your bag!
As we finally come back from the COVID break I have finally got a chance to throw some of my new rocks. Let's chat about the new ripcord flight. For me, I drilled mine 40x4x70. So for me its pin under the middle finger with no hole. I have a shock drilled the exact same layout. So to me, the flight feels cleaner upfront and more responsive downlane than the shock that people love to compare it to. Overall strength they are very similar just different shapes to me. Really great compliments to each other.
Continuing with the dual-density Oblivion™ core to provide length and create angle, the Sky Blue Ripcord™ Flight features Turmoil™ Max Solid Reactive cover stock. This modified version of the cover used on the Venom Shock handles slightly more oil volume and is tuned with a 3000 Grit LSS factory finish.
So...all I have to say right now is Wow!! Do not let the attractive light blue color fool you...this ball really surprised me with it's ability to read and pick up the mid lane on both sport and house patterns. I truly was 7 and and 4 left of where I thought I would be with this gem. I have a 55 x 4 3/4 x 40 layout in it and once I got left enough the shape and carry was tremendous. I suggest that anyone looking for a good benchmark ball try this one out.
This ball was amazing from the first time I threw it down the lane! It really fits perfectly into “the middle” of my arsenal making it a great benchmark ball. The dual density weight block (Oblivion core) with the Turmoil Max Solid Reactive cover gives this ball the perfect amount of traction and backend I look for in that part of my arsenal. It fits many type of shots from tournaments to leagues and a ball you will want in your bag!

The Ripcord Flight is exactly as advertised. I put the same pin down layout that I love on my Venom Shock.(30 x 4 x 65) and this ball is a stronger version. Not only is it a compliment to my Shock, it matches up great as a ball up to the original Ripcord. It has a smooth continuous motion that I have become accustomed to from Motiv’s solid cover stocks.
