I highly recommend getting this ball since I’ve gotten i scored higher then I normally have until I got this ball. Once I started throwing Motiv more my scores have increased a lot a lot. Once I got the ripcord Velocity my scores improved more. Close to 300 games and really improved. HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS BALL

Ripcord Velocity (noun): 1. uses the Oblivion Symmetric core shape that was used previously in the Paranoia series and in the first two Ripcord balls. 2. Infusion MVP Pearl Reactive veneer is prepped with a 5500 grit polished box finish. 3. Continues the tradition of strong down lane motion allowing you to open your angles.
Ripcord Velocity will give you a lot of its muscle up front when it encounters friction, this also allows it provide suitable back end motion for a variety oof rev rates.
Infusion MVP Pearl is what gives Ripcord Velocity length which makes it ideal fitting between Fatal Venom or other dull weaponry you may have in your arsenal.
The traction that Ripcord Velocity creates somewhat reduces its back end just enough that it fits below that of Jackal Flash and Supra, however it still provides a strong ball motion down lane.
Because Ripcord Velocity has a strong roll to it as the friction increases it can become too much ball depending on the user, as the friction increases it will nudge you further away from your comfort zone. To combat this you make want to ball down or move your breakpoint.
Using Ripcord Velocity on the conditions it was designed for gave me my best looks, medium oil in particular as I was able to play where I am most comfortable which is standing left and throwing right. I had plenty of down lane recovery as Ripcord Velocity is strong off the friction, as the transition came it became a matter of projection manipulation. I consider Ripcord Velocity an excellent choice for playing steeper angles after opening the lanes up with Forge Flare or Jackal Legacy, to an extent I had success on heavier patterns taking advantage of the heavy roll. Smaller rev rates will find Ripcord Velocity useful in regard to the strong ball motion it provides down lane, out of box it is cleaner than both Forge Flare and Jackal Legacy but will change direction just as hard down lane.
If you’ve never got the change to try to Ripcord or Ripcord Flight I encourage you to take a look at Ripcord Velocity.
Your game will Thank you.

The combination of the dual density oblivion core, and the new version of the Infusion MVP Reactive cover is an absolute home run. This ball provides supremely easy length, while still reading the lane early enough to not have to worry about throwing it by the hook spot. When you need to open up the lanes, and go around it with something fast, this is the ball for you. It also still retains incredible amounts of energy, even from deeper angles. When the lanes start hooking, pull on the Ripcord Velocity!
The Ripcord Velocity has been what I have been looking for since the original Ripcord(purple). This ball gets through the front of the lanes so well without me having to try to push it to back of the pattern. I drilled mine 60 x 4 1/2 x 25. The low val angles lets the ball read the end of the pattern quicker for me and allows the ball to continue its attack to the pocket. The color of this ball I love with it being my high schools colors. I love using this ball as a good #2 ball when the lanes start to transition because this ball helps get through the transition so easy for me and allows me to start opening my angles quicker than most people during tournament play. The next ball down after this ball is the Supra Enzo. The Ripcord Velocity and Supra Enzo are so good together. You shouldn't leave home without both of these.

I was very excited to see the new Ripcord Velocity come out this year as I have always been a fan of the Ripcord line. The Velocity is simply better than what I expected. This new Velocity has enough shine to get through the front part of the lane without giving up any grit to turn the corner down lane. I drilled my Velocity exactly like my Supra Enzo and when you throw the Venom Shock in the middle of those two balls you simply can't go wrong. Velocity allows me to play in the oil long enough to where I can ball down to a Shock, Enzo, or even the original Supra. The continuation of this ball through the pins is still a staple for the Motiv brand as it simply doesn't quit.
