I was looking for a Motiv spare ball to pair with my Forza and settled on this based on looks. Brand new, this ball looks fantastic. Performance wise, it suits its purpose, getting down lane without rolling over too much if I put too much hand on the shot. After 7 years the ball still looks good. The white and silver held up and my pro shop put clear grips in. Unfortunately the ball is no longer in my arsenal. I learned to throw my other balls straight to pick up spares allowing me to remove the dedicated spare ball from my 6 ball arsenal. I still have the ball though and don't plan on getting rid of it.
I actually used this on burn more than my spare ball. It hooks and sets perfectly on that last game of let's find the last drop of oil. It's a great ball!
Managed to buy this ball direct from the factory new in 2021 despite it being discontinued. (Old stock sitting on a shelf.) Got it drilled up and threw it on a beat up house oil pattern on a Saturday night with the family. Managed to get a 185 out of it. This ball has the ability to be laser straight if you need to pick up a single pin spare or have a smooth hook if you want to throw it as a first ball. It does amazing on dry to medium oil and shows no signs of slowing down even after bowling 5 games on a house pattern with the kids. It’s not the ball for everyone, but if you struggle with odd placement spares, the Sniper line is a perfect addition.
Since it is a retired ball I bought it used off someone. I had my pro shop plug and drill it up for me. It works great on my Wednesday night league where the lanes are typically pretty dry and alot of right handers like myself throwing down lane. The Artic Sniper stays consistent shot after shot and powerful through the pocket.
I was at a TKO tournament and after the first session i was in 18th position. The next session came around and i start with the sniper. Then i found my mark and went up hill from there. I ended as first seed with a 678 scratch and 690 with handicap. I ended up losing by 1 in the final game but i cant be to mad i was 18th. Here i now know not to give up when almost in last in a tournament.\r\n\r\nhere is the score sheet
