I recently moved back to Georgia and learned that the technique that I used to layout my balls is no longer practiced. I was given a copy of Mo Pinel's Dual Angle Technique. Very interesting read.
With that said, my pro shop guy laid out my Iron Forge: 45x4 1/4x25 surface taken down to 2000. With this layout the ball rolls nicely through the mid lane, goes long and hits hard on the backend.
A great ball. I was an all Ebonite guy, now I’m stuck with MOTIV.
Thank you for a great ball line.
The high rev bowlers love this ball more and can get that movement out of it. I am a lower rev guy and so this ball is good the first game until the oil carries down, when that happens I don't have the revs to overcome the oil. However you can slow it down and still get some pop out of it. So for different conditions, this works! But I'm going to call it a higher rev ball, and if you have higher revs, your gonna like this one!
The Iron Forge is my first Motiv ball. I bought it for my son for Christmas but I have found myself using it more than him. The hook took me awhile to figure out but once I did, my score jumped.
This may be my first Motiv ball but it surely won’t be my last. I can’t wait to try out the rest of the line up.
I know this ball lists as medium to heavy oil but my layout is long and strong and this ball is my go to ball when the lanes start burning or if there is a lot of friction early. It plays the friction so nice, even this 300 rev player can move left, send it right and it loves to explode the back-end. I have an Ember, as well, and soon a Flare but this is clearly a must have ball for Motiv faithful!
So I had this ball purchased as a birthday gift, and had it drilled at my local pro shop who had done all my other balls. Not sure of it's luck of the draw but this ball has no movement, it's basically an over priced straight ball. I recently switched back to my Villain which isn't supposed to be as aggressive and it had way more action.
