The Venom line is getting a power upgrade with the new Venom Recoil. This is the first asymmetric Venom ever released by MOTIV and it features the new Gear APG (Asymmetric Performance Gain) weight block.

Because the balance-hole rule has changed, MOTIV created the asymmetric Gear APG weight block to give ball drillers more layout versatility when no balance-hole is used.

The original Venom Shock provides incredible performance at a very affordable price and this new asymmetric Venom Recoil is no different. This ball offers massive value!

    House Shot Killer!!!

    I got this ball after seeing some really great reviews and recommendations from some Motiv staffers. And all the praise they have given this ball falls short of the incredible performance this ball has provided me.

    I am one of the few players in my league that throws strictly Motiv and I have had several people come up and talk to me about that ball.

    It is extremely forgiving. The continuation through the pin deck is consistent. Its hitting power is great. It is probably the best house shot ball I've ever thrown.

    This is probably the first ball I've had in a long while that I will get another one for a different layout. Its that good.

    I would recommend this to a friend

    Awesome low differential asymmetrical ball

    I was able to use this on a THS with high friction and got a great motion out of it. Went long and drove hard into the pocket. My layout was 60x 4 1/2x 25. Great job Motiv.

    Hesitated but finally pulled down the drill bit.

    I don't love earlier motions. I didn't think that I needed this ball. However, I didn't have the ball for a house shot with lots of over and under expectations. This experiment was a win. This ball is later than I thought it would be but still reads the lanes well.

    This ball is great for most house shots, not just the one I was on. I have thrown this a couple of times now and each time, I am pleased I gave it a shot.

    Very nice ball

    I use this ball quite frequently and it always has been a very consistent piece in my arsenal. The asymmetric core gives me a tad more pop on the backend than the venom shock would and has very great continuation.

    I would recommend this to a friend
