The VIP line is back with something very special for greater oil volume. Never before available worldwide, the powerful new Affliction™ symmetrical core is featured to create a heavy oil monster with 10-back continuation.  The VIP Affliction is only available in limited quantities so get it while you can!

Designed to create an angular motion in heavy oil, the VIP Affliction features Infusion™ HV Hybrid Reactive cover stock. It digs in the oil yet retains enough energy to continue with significant angle down lane. The 4000 Grit LSS finish provides more traction than a shiny pearl, but is not so dull to lose continuation.  

The fast-spinning Affliction™ core has a low RG and substantial differential. This combination gives the bowler both stability and strength to pair with the clean and angular hybrid cover wrapped around it. This combination makes the VIP Affliction incredible for creating angle on transitioning heavy oil patterns.

When to use:
  • Speed Dominant:  For speed dominant players, this is a strong enough core to allow comfort when creating angle. For speed dominant players the concern is all too often that creating angle is difficult because the ball wants to shoot through the breakpoint.  The low rg paired with a high diff will allow for greater speeds and more aggressive launch angles from speed dominant bowlers.
  • Balanced:  Balanced bowlers who like to create angle early in a block will love having the VIP Affliction in their bag.  Balanced bowlers sometimes end up “on the wrong side” of the higher rev rate players because they cannot shape anything enough early in the block.  The VIP Affliction fills this crucial spot in the bag of a competitive balanced player.
  • Rev Dominant: When the puddle in the middle is substantial, but you want to win the race to left, the VIP Affliction will do just that.  With just enough dig in the oil to allow rev dominant players to get left fast, the VIP Affliction is a great option for early transition when the oil is thick.

    Best ball ever!

    This has been easily the best ball I have thrown. Many 270 plus games with it. Shot 300 last game in my league last week. Just threw my first 800 with it tonight including a 299 second game. Cover stock and core match up to my game very well. Stood on 23 all 3 games throwing at 13 out to 6. Lanes were very oily tonight so my line didn't break down at all being the only lefty. I have it drilled with my favorite layout. 65* x 5 x 35*. I have the surface at 3000 CTD pad. Thank you motiv!

    Love it!

    As a person who is not a fan of hybrid cover stocks, I had to give this one a try. Drilled it with one of my favorite layouts 40 x 4.50 x 30. Super strong and recovers nicely! Great looking colors! I can use this any where on the lanes. Plenty of length and clears the fronts well too.

    Missed the mark

    While all the extended hype behind another Special Edition ball this one really fizzled out for me. I pre ordered two with the expectation that this block and coverstock would be the big ball I was missing. With two separate layouts one being pin high the other about 1 1/2 lower equal to my finger holes both seem to struggle on volume and rolls up really slow. Where when using my Venom Shock having a similar layout to the second ball was rolling up strong and hitting the pocket heavy. The EJX was a special edition almost comparable to the Octane Burn. The best limited release for me to date has been the T10 still my go to ball anywhere I go!

    Had the ball since the release, however, havent been able to throw it till recently. During practice, I think I could have kicked the ball down lane to strike. This thing has eyes! And can find the pocket no matter how you throw it. I throw 18mph with a 426 rev rate. And on a Typical House Pattern throwing 3rd arrow out to the 3-5 board, it snaps back to the 1-2 pocket with ease! So far havent thrown less than a 246 with this ball! Making it hold up to its name, VIP! By far one of the best balls in my bag! Better get one if you dont have one. Or you Will Miss Out!
