Ripcord Velocity

It’s all about angle! From core to cover, the Ripcord™ Velocity is built to fly fast and corner hard.  

The dual-density Oblivion™ core is a complex work of engineering unlike anything else in the world.  It features a massive flip-block to make the Ripcord™ Velocity come off the oil pattern as violently as possible.  And with a high RG and moderate differential the Oblivion™ core is dialed in for versatility on medium oil conditions.  “We’ve had this core for a few years now and I feel like we are still learning tricks that we can do with it,” said MOTIV® Tour Rep Nick Pahr. 

To take full advantage of the dynamic characteristics of the Oblivion core, MOTIV® is featuring new Infusion™ MVP Reactive cover stock on the Ripcord Velocity.  Evolving from the technology used on the Fatal Venom, Infusion MVP produces easy length and an unbelievable change of direction down lane. “This new cover technology is allowing us to shape the ball and create angles that we haven’t seen before”, said Brett Spangler of MOTIV.  Tuned with a 5500 Grit LSP finish, the Ripcord Velocity has speed to spare.  

When To Use:

  • Speed Dominant: Speed dominant players will use the Velocity as their burn ball.  What the Velocity offers is more angle down lane than anything else available.  For speed dominant players, that is the last crucial piece in the progression, a ball that can make the corner when they have to use angle. 
  • Balanced: When balanced bowlers need help through the front and angle through the pins, the Ripcord Velocity is the best option.  For balanced bowlers on higher friction surfaces where the front of the lane is an issue, this Ripcord will have no problem giving the length needed with a surprising pop down lane. 
  • Rev Dominant: For players who have rev rate to spare, the Ripcord Velocity is like cheating.  The incredible angles this ball can create for a rev dominant player are something nobody else on the lane will be able to mimic.  When getting steep is key, rev dominant players will have an unfair advantage with the Ripcord Velocity.

    Core: Oblivion
    Type: Symmetric
    Coverstock: Infusion MVP Pearl Reactive
    Box Finish: 5500 Grit LSS
    Layout: 45 x 4 ½ x 70
    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.
    Overall Summary
    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.

    Ball is QUICK

    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!

    RIPCORD all day

    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.

    Ripcord Rebirth

    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.

    Layout - 65x4-1/2x45
    Revrate - 430-450
    Ball Speed - 17mph
    PAP - 5" over 1/2" up
