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.

    Excellent entry level ball

    Buying my first ball felt like an overwhelming task at first. I am glad though that I took my time to research and finally ended up with the Top Trill as that ball. We bowl in a weekly league with THS pattern and learning how to hook with this ball has been a breeze. Smooth reaction on the lane that is easily repeated as I've worked on developing my form. Excited to continue exploring Motivs other offerings and having a 2nd ball drilled today!

    Great ball for bowlers who are serious, but don’t want to drop to much money into a bowling ball.

    I just started bowling a couple of months ago and this ball works very well for me. I bowl two handed and this ball does almost exactly what I want it to do for me. If you’re going to buy this ball I recommend getting a heavier ball, I have 15 and it’s great, meanwhile my buddy has a 13 and we’ve both noticed that his doesn’t preform as well as mine sometimes so just keep that in mind when you’re buying this ball.

    Top Thrill

    This was my first light oil ball and it did everything for me! When friction started to show I was confident to pull out my Thrill and work the inside more. This ball is definitely a great entry ball or budget ball. I would recommend this to anyone!

    Strong entry ball

    Just got a top thrill for when lays burn out in 2-3rd shift. Amazed at how I can actually start with this ball in early shift and stay with transition because of the cover. Averaging about 215 with it in 3 second shift leagues.

    Great ball fir the price

    This is a good ball for the light oil lanes. Some also struggle with wood lanes and higher friction and these have a smooth line into the pocket. Pin down layout works well with this ball! Have fun with it happy bowling!
