The all new Forge™ is the strongest symmetrical ball ever created by MOTIV®.   Born from the fires of the Revolt™, the Forge™ is built for a smooth motion on medium-heavy oil conditions.  Creating impressive control and outstanding continuation, casual bowlers will love the massive hook potential and competitive bowlers will appreciate the control.

The brand new Detonator™ weight block provides a low RG and high differential to create easy revs and massive amounts of flare.  Reverb™ outer core material surrounds the new Detonator™ core to provide explosive hitting power.

One of the strongest covers ever developed by MOTIV®, Coercion™ HFS provides traction in the heaviest of oil, a smooth response to friction, and outstanding continuation.  The Forge™ is tuned with a 3000 Grit LSS finish to complement the motion created by Coercion HFS reactive technology.

    My first 700

    This ball just got me my first 700 series with a 749! 267 247 235!! There's a reason the Forge line continues to be produced and sold. For a big symmetrical core, it isn't too big but it certainly picks up and turns the corner hard!!

    Most Versatile Ball in my Bag

    I have several Motiv balls in my bag, but this one is by far my favorite. I can play it on almost any pattern, and it is my go-to ball on my house shot during the high school season. I can play many different lines and angles, and I never have to worry about pin carry.

    My go to ball...

    Every year I purchase a new ball. This year it was the Forge. I have added polish to the box finish and it suits my game perfectly. I have used it on varying oil lengths and have easily found a striking line on each.
