I hope everyone was able to get one of these! This is the most versatile ball in my bag. Shutting down angels? This ball strikes. Opening up and circling the lane? This ball strikes. A great compliment to the Supra for when it is too angular and/or if there is too much oil in the front making the Supra get too long before making its move, the VIP gets into a roll earlier allowing me to stay in the same zone as the Supra.
The Limited Edition ExJ VIP brings me back to the first couple of MOTIV bowling balls I ever owned, the Thrash and QZ1 Purple, which both contained the Quadfire Core. While expecting a benchmark type reaction with the VIP, I compared it with the Ripcord Flight which has been one of the first pieces out of my bag at a lot of tournaments recently. Generally using the Ripcord Flight on the fresher patterns, I was sure that the VIP would be a bit faster responsive downlane than the Ripcord Flight. It didn’t take me long to realize how well these two pair together. The VIP also has the amount of control that it can be used on fresh patterns and throughout the night or block of games.
The ExJ VIP brings me back to the first MOTIV pieces that I ever had, but with a huge upgrade with the Infusion Cover. Although a Limited Edition, this is going to be huge for anyone that gets there hands on one (or two+). I can’t express in words how well the ExJ VIP performs and matches well especially with my game.

The Limited Edition MOTIV ExJ VIP combines the Octane core with the Infusion Pearl cover from the Supra, and this combination gives you a ball that punches well above its weight class. This ball is suitable for medium to medium-heavy oil depending on how much hand you have.
The best thing about this ball is the continuation. It rolls like a truck through the pin deck, pretending the rack isn't even there! It's super clean through the fronts and starts revving up in the 30-40 feet range, and then you get a super heavy roll on the backend, with a great change of direction and not much energy loss due to the clean Infusion cover.
This ball is a Limited Edition release, so if you want one, don't wait. It's a limited production run and when they're gone, they're gone!

I bought this ball as my first Motiv ball. I was not too brand specific until I threw this last night. This ball gives me the ability to keep my lines in front of me while still giving me the back end reaction that I want. I am a higher speed, higher rev rate type of bowler and love this ball. Thank you EJ Tackett and Motiv.
This ball is awesome. Got drilled with pin above ring finger, and it hits like a truck. Has great length, great angle, but not too much of either. Great ball when the lanes start to burn. I pair it with my Golden Jackal.
