Infuse your game with angle with the Ripcord™.  Tuned to create as much angle and continuation through the pins as possible, the Ripcord™ is the ideal ball for generating incredible down lane motion on moderate volumes of oil.  When the oil in the front part of the lane is depleted and moving in to create angle is the only option, the Ripcord™ will create that angle with ease.

The latest development in coverstock technology, the Infusion™ Reactive cover gives easy length with incredible down lane motion.  This cover is tuned for today’s higher viscosity oils to provide length without risking the ball slipping through the breakpoint.

The Oblivion™ core is a finely tuned device for creating as much angle and continuation through the pins as possible.  Every component of this core is designed to help bowlers create down lane motion.  The high rg creates easy length.  The moderate differential ensures that the ball will not flare too little and miss the break point.  Added to this great rg/diff combo is a dynamic dual density component!  The massive flip block on the bottom of the Oblivion core only adds to the angle it creates.

    The MOTIV ripcord. I Drilled this piece 4 1/2 inches from my PAP With a VAL angle of 35° no hole. I wanted this piece to be clean thru the front part of the lane while I still wanted to have some pop on the back part of the lane since this center hooks a bit where you have to open up your angles. Needless to say the Ripcord didn’t disappoint. This ball is very clean for me through the front part of the pattern which is 42 feet house. Once it left the pattern it broke sharply toward the pocket without losing too much energy carrying all ten pins the pit. This piece continues to roll through the pins shot after shot. If you need piece to go long and finish strong this is the ball for you.

    I thought there was great revving on this ball, and I love throwing it! My sister thought so too. You know when it's a good ball when your boyfriend thinks so too.

    If you're looking for a ball with easy length, that is strong off the spot, look no further! The Ripcord gets through the fronts, reads the mid-lane and flies off the friction with great continuation through the pins. On medium-heavy conditions you can stand left and throw it to the right without hesitation. The layout I used is 30 x 5.5 x 70, which puts the pin below my middle finger, right handed.

    Great ball

    Had the opportunity to try this ball at a mega demo days at a local bowling center and was very impressed. It came off my hand very smooth and I had no issues with adjusting when lane conditions were broken down

    I have found out from using the Ripcord on medium to light conditions with pin up layout between the fingers with CG about 2.5 from center of span to be continuous through pin deck. I also noticed how the Ripcord responded through oil and once it hit friction on the lane about the last thirty feet, the Ripcord kept moving through the pins in an angular fashion. This ball is very responsive for a symmetrical bowling ball and gives the bowler easy adjustment to ball movement. Gets back to the one three pocket very reasonably. I suggest this ball as a must in your bag between the Venom Shock solid and Venom Shock Pearl.
