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!
I don’t usually get strong equipment cause our house doesn’t put out enough oil to use past medium tier gear. This ball is on a whole other level though. I can cook up the speed and step left to open up the middle of the lane with ease using this. Great continuation in the front of the lane and amazing explosive energy in the back end. Easily the greatest hybrid right up there with my cobra.
VIP Affliction is my go to out of the bag. Plenty of back end angular motion and drives through the pocket like a bull in a China cabinet. 3 of my highest games so far 299, 288 and 300.
This is my fifth Motiv ball purchased. This ball is just awesome gets down the lane with length, come hard on the back end and drives though the pocket with force. This ball is already a favorite and makes it very hard on which ball I use first out the bag. Big thanks to my pro shop Joe & Rich on suggesting this ball.
