The Top Thrill line is developed for premium performance on dry lanes.  The latest additions to the MOTIV product line are the Top Thrill Solid and the Top Thrill Hybrid.  These two balls were developed for world class performance on dry lanes.  While others develop “entry level” bowling balls, we at MOTIV focus on premium performance for the varied environments a competitive bowler is likely to encounter.  With peak performance in mind, the new Top Thrill Solid and Top Thrill Hybrid are designed for specific needs expressed by bowlers.

The Halogen V2 core returns for these two Top Thrills as it is perfect for performance in light oil.  It combines a slow-spinning high RG core for easy length and a lower differential to provide 2-3 inches of track flare potential.  The moderately low differential allows for a clear progression within the MOTIV product line, stepping down from balls intended for medium-dry lanes. 

The Top Thrill Hybrid utilizes Turmoil XP2 Hybrid coverstock, which a higher performance option than the original Turmoil XP used previously in the Top Thrill line.  As a result, bowlers will see more traction in the mid lane with greater down lane motion. 


  • Speed Dominant Bowlers - Speed dominant players will likely use the Top Thrill line when the lanes are very dry or on shorter oil patterns when urethane balls are not an option.  The Top Thrill Hybrid will be most useful when more down lane motion is needed, while the Top Thrill Solid is ideal on shorter patterns.
  • Balanced Bowlers - For balanced bowlers, dry lanes and at the end of long blocks of competition are ideal for the Top Thrill line.  Balanced bowlers competing on a second shift or in tournaments with longer formats will find great use for the Top Thrills.  Often, balanced bowlers find themselves lost after urethane has transitioned lanes.  In those cases, the Top Thrill Solid allows for straighter angles is a great solution.  When the patterns are longer and bowlers want to create more angle, the Top Thrill Hybrid should be used.
  • Rev Dominant Bowlers - For rev dominant bowlers, the Top Thrills are a must in the bag.  The Top Thrill solid is a great option for lower volume fresh patterns where straighter angles are in play and other balls are just too strong for the angles in play.  The Top Thrill Hybrid is an outstanding burn ball for rev dominant bowlers.  While the solid is better on light oil from shallow angles, at the end of the block, the Top Thrill Hybrid will be useful from steep angles.

    Don't be fooled by the price point

    Don't be fooled by the lower price point. This ball def has some teeth to bite through the lanes. I've used it 3 full sets this last week and all 690+ . Great lane appeal and even better performance. Get you one in your bag for those lighter volume house shots

    Very strong on dry lanes!

    I needed a ball that I could use on dry lanes after the unexpected happened during a league night. I played against 4 other men that were left-handed bowlers that all used 15lbs and 16lbs urethane purple hammers. By the end of the first game; the oil was thin, so I did a ball change. I pulled out my black venom and by the middle of the 2nd game it was time to use the Thrill! I started striking out and all the guys I played against couldn’t figure out how I was doing it because their purple hammers started over hooking, but after studying the Motiv bowling ball chart weeks in advance and with lots of practice, I was able to finish that night with a 600 series! Getting a 600 series was rough and a little upsetting to me, but hey it was the first time I played a league night with a total of five lefties. The sad part was the only right-handed player was an older woman who was getting back into bowling from hip surgery and she was using an 8lbs house ball, so the right side was untouched for a change. The Thill saved the day and it will always travel with me for when the oil gets to thin and dry. Thank you Motiv for saving the day ❤️

    Very Very Good entry level ball

    Took me a while to get used to it compared to the more aggressive balls. Once the lanes are burnt up this is the go to ball for me. Also great if you are just getting into bowling and learning how to throw a hook.

    No cheap thrill with Top Thrill Hybrid

    Core: Halogen V2
    Type: Symmetrical
    Coverstock: Turmoil XP2 Hybrid Reactive
    Box Finish: 5500 Grit LSP
    Layout: 40 x 4 ½ x 20

    Top Thrill Hybrid is rather clean through front and rather responsive downlane, so much that it much ignored any friction created in the front by duller weaponry.
    I respect the strong move Top Thrill Hybrid gives me at the breakpoint and backend, it may be at the bottom of our ball guide chart but the amount of continuation and performance you get is first class.
    Top Thrill Hybrid is rather angular and that allowed me to open my angles on the fresh, and even more as the friction increased.

    Turmoil XP2 Hybrid Reactive does not provide enough traction in heavy oil, however it is not designed to provide traction in heavy oil.

    Overall Summary

    The Top Thrill Hybrid is the cleaner and more angular to that of Top Thrill, it will also provide you with a stronger downlane motion to that of Microcell Polymer. I would definitely encourage you to strongly consider the Top Thrill Hybrid for drier conditions because the only thing cheap about Top Thrill Hybrid is the price.
    Add some Thrill Hybrid to your life.

    Your game will thank you for it.

    The new definition of Entry Level has arrived. Don't be fooled by the price of these balls. If any other company tried to make a stronger ball it would not be entry level. With these balls you get upper level performance at entry level price. These balls give you more bang for your buck than ever before.

    If your a THS bowler or looking for something controllable with great backend motion, these balls are for you.

    The Hybrid in particular is great when those mids get dry from all the big solids we all see going down the lane.

    If you want to out perform your fellow competitors when the lanes get tricky, just reach in the bag and give them a "THRILL".
