The brand new MOTIV® Top Thrill™ takes high friction performance to a new level!  This latest advancement for dry lanes offers a boosted core and brand new coverstock, a significant step up from the original Thrill™ models in both core and coverstock technology.   The Top Thrill™ provides bowlers with more options for attacking drier lanes and higher friction lane surfaces.  

Developed as a dry lane complement to the Infusion™ reactive cover, the Turmoil™ XP  shell provides as much down lane shape with less traction in the oil to allow for use on dry lanes.  When Infusion™ reactive balls are too strong, the Top Thrill™ will be a great option for even the most competitive bowlers.  

The Flux™ core in the original Thrill™ is replaced in the Top Thrill™ with a modified Halogen™ core previously found in higher performance Motiv® bowling balls.  The new Halogen™ V2 has a slightly higher RG than the original with a lower differential.  The Halogen™ V2 is uniquely suited for dry lanes, but with a strong enough core to allow for more angles of play and significantly more versatility in drilling options. 

WHEN TO USE:

  • Speed Dominant Bowlers:  When speed dominant bowlers encounter conditions so scorched that they need a dry lane ball, it’s important to have one that is developed for performance.  The Top Thrill is developed to provide shape on dry lanes, not just deliver at the cheapest price or just be the prettiest ball on the wall.
  • Balanced Bowlers: For balanced bowlers, a dry lane ball is an important part of a tournament arsenal. Low volume oil patterns and high friction surfaces necessitate balls with higher rg’s and lower differentials.  The Top Thrill is designed to fit in a competitive bowler’s progression just below the Venom and Supra line.
  • Rev Dominant Bowlers: For bowlers with exceptionally low speed or high rev rates, the Top Thrill allows manageable angles on normal house patterns and sport shots.  A rev dominant bowler so often is forced to play much deeper with steep angles even on house shots due to their ball speed to rev rate ratio.  The Top Thrill solves that problem.

    Exactly what I was looking for!

    It is important to remember that these aren't "beginner" balls per-se... Yes, you could pick one up and put a pin above bridge layout on it and it would work, BUT they can be purpose fitted for specific conditions or shots. I bowl at a center that has older wooden lanes on the second shift so the lanes are pretty worked over and responsive by the time my league starts. It is extremely difficult to use anything above my benchmark ball in my arsenal in these conditions (they either over-react or read way too early and die off before getting to the backs). I needed something that would allow me to play closer to that up-ten shot in these conditions. I visited my pro and talked to him about it, we laid out the ball and this ball does exactly what I expected. It can react in the dry if I get into it a little early, but the pearl cover gets me through the other players lines to the clean on the back without a big reaction early on the lane and a moderate backend reaction so that it doesn't overact once it catches the back ends. Definitely a good ball to have in the bag if your center has soft lanes or you tend to bowl on dry conditions.

    Summer shot game saver

    I was going to pass on this ball, but I decided to get it. The house I was bowling at used to put out less volume on their house shot for the summer, which makes a whole lot of sense in the desert. The Top Thrill Pearl was exactly what I needed. It gives me the length without stand up too sharply down lane. If you're bowling on the burn or high friction lanes you need this ball.

    Great ball!! Great value!!

    This ball is amazing. I bowl on wood alleys with light to medium oil. This ball is very clean through the heads and still has enough to make the corner and carry the 10 pin. I bought my fiancé one after throwing it for a few weeks. Her average came up ten pins.

    Great ball for light oil or dryer lanes. Love the control and reliability of the ball. Great action at 17.5-18 mph.
