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 Solid uses Turmoil XP2 Solid coverstock to provide easy length, yet also a smooth and continuous motion. Additionally, the finish of the Top Thrill Solid is set with performance in mind.  The 4000 Grit LSS finish allows for easy length, but without a violent down lane motion.  Control with resin on dry lanes is the purpose of the Top Thrill Solid.


  • 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.

    Great control ball on dryer lane conditions

    I bought this ball to use as a ball down from Black Venom in a local bowling center that has lighter oil volume and high friction. The Fatal Venom would often be too responsive on these conditions so I asked my PSO if there was anything I could get to smooth out my reaction and the Top Thrill Solid was his recommendation. I used it for games 2 and 3 the night I bought it and it did exactly what I had hoped it would do. I was able to keep control of the pocket for the last 2 games of my set and stay above average on the night. This ball looked great and I'm excited to use it more.

    Top Thrill Solid is phenomenal

    After starting in a league this year after 6yrs away, I decided to look for a new (used) ball since my Brunswick Python was 14yrs old.

    I looked around and found Motiv and loved their ball guide and used it and the retired balls to help me pick a good one.

    I also found someone on eBay & Facebook selling about 30 of their 15lb Motiv balls so I bought a few. Thankfully he brought some of them to the house he was rolling at and I was able to test them out and the drill pattern was very similar to my own (bonus!).

    I picked the Venom Shock, Fatal Venom, Supra Enzo to start. I was having some issues keeping the Venom Shock and Fatal in the pocket, same for the Enzo. I swapped the Enzo for the Pride and also picked up the Top Thrill Solid at the seller's recommendation.

    Well, even though I was reluctant to use the Top Thrill Solid, it turns out to be the best ball for me.

    I'm about 400rpms, 4 step approach from the 12.5' mark and around the 30th board. My line out to the right varies on my release and I do not use an arrow for alignment, I just bowl on feel.

    5 weeks ago I settled on the Top Thrill after trying the others throughout the night - bad idea!. Since committing to the Top Thrill Solid, I've bowled - 602; 646; 696, 744; 691.

    For context, I used to bowl around 210 years 6+ yrs ago and this year I injured my right arm just after the season start. Decided to try 2H bowling for about 3 months while I recovered and maintained a 190avg throughout the year.

    I wish I found the Top Thrill Solid sooner. Perfectly matched ball for me.

    Big hook, little price tag

    This isn't a ball I use very often. I do, however, wish this ball was around when I first started bowling; I think it would have been a perfect start. It has a good shape, the out of box finish can really be played on anything, regardless of what the ball guide says. This one earns it 5 stars for not coming with the big cost and still providing big shape.

    This would be an amazing ball for any beginner bowler with limited funds or just for a guy who wanted his own ball and doesn't bowl a lot. But, it won't be replacing anything in my current bag.

    Just what the doctor order

    I just had my pro shop drill up a Top Thrill Solid today (3/12/24) for a center I bowl in that has high friction lanes. My Top Thrill Pearl (Blue & Green) was just too clean / over under. Where the Top Thrill Solid blended the condition on the lanes perfectly, and didn't have to put something in my hands try to hook the whole lane. The Top Thrill Solid matched up so welI. I used it for all three games during league.
    I have other non Motiv balls I take to the multiple leagues I bowl on. However when I'm struggling and I need a answer to get back to putting up strikes on score sheet. I reach for my Motiv equipment ( Trident Abyss, Forge Ember, Pride Empire, Top Thrill {Solid & Pearl} .

    Best ball for dry lanes!

    It’s an amazing ball and I love that this ball doesn’t get a lot of belt marks on it! This is the ball you want to use when the lanes a bone dry but when they are dry this baby strikes!
