Venom Shock

Item Number: MTVBVSPPS

$174.99210 Read Reviews

The new solid purple Venom Shock produces a violent reaction on light to medium oil conditions.  It attacks the lane with the proven Gear™ weight block and new cover technology – Turmoil™ MFS (Medium Friction Solid) Reactive, which is a modified version of the more aggressive shell featured on the Covert Revolt.  This core and cover combination provides a smooth yet angular backend motion that strikes with devastating continuation.   

As far as shelf appeal, the Venom Shock does not disappoint.  The vibrant orange logo really pops off the purple shell.  And, for those that are into glow-in-the-dark bowling, the logos on the ball glow orange and green. 

The Venom Shock really does have it all – performance, looks, and a great price point.  The most shocking thing about this ball may be that you get such outstanding performance at such an affordable price! 


  • Speed Dominant - Bowlers with higher speeds or moderate speed paired with lower rev rates, the Venom Shock is a great option for control in higher friction environments. Late in league nights or on low volume patterns, the Venom Shock shines for speed dominant bowlers.   
  • Balanced - For the balanced bowler the Venom Shock is an absolute must have in the middle of their arsenal.  Balanced bowlers will find that the versatility of the shock allows it to be used in many different volumes and lengths of oil from dry lanes to moderately high volumes of oil.  An added bonus for bowlers who love the Venom Shock is how well it responds to surface changes.  
  • Rev Dominant - Those with revs to spare can use the Venom Shock in many volumes of oil and see outstanding down lane continuation for a ball that is conventionally thought of as a control ball.  A shiny Venom Shock is a staple in the bag of many PBA Touring players who want to create some angle without sacrificing control in later transition.

    Venom Shock is one of the BEST balls ever produced by ANY company

    I have been bowling since I was a very young child. Over the years I have used dozens of different bowling balls produced by literally every brand. Let me just say, it should not come as a SHOCK to anyone who has ever thrown this ball (or seen it thrown), that it is among the most useful, predictable, hard hitting, and versatile bowling balls ever produced. It is almost always my "go to" 1st ball out of my bag. I am a left handed player who would be described as "balanced". With the Shock in my hands, I can play most any condition on any lane surface. I could not recommend the Venom Shock more highly. Over the past couple of years, I know at least a half dozen league and tournament mates that have purchased this ball after seeing how it rolled for me. Motiv....PLEASE never stop producing this ball.....EVER !!

    It is good. I have the older one but got it redone. It is good but sometimes it does the trick but other times it doesn't until I switched from the pin up layout i had to the standard tester layout for Motiv and now it is working just great it is a good ball for speed dominant bowlers and rev dominant bowlers highly recommend if you don't have this ball you need to get it asap won't regret it

    This ball is absolutely insane, no wonder it's been around for over ten years! I absolutely love this ball, I've only had it for three days and it's my new favorite ball! I laid mine out 50x4.75"x30. At first it didn't seem to match up, if I missed outside it would fly by the break point but if I missed inside it would hook and go WAY too high in the pocket. But I put an 800 grit pad on it and oh my, this thing hits harder than all of my Brunswick company balls combined!!! This thing is a messenger machine, having three in one game. Today I bowled a tournament, my average is around 180, but today I shot 225, 203, and 234, which is around 40 pins over my average. This ball pairs great with VIP ExJ Sigma, when my Shock gets too early this is a great ball when the lanes start to break down afterwards. This is an absolute beast, can't wait to try out the Primal Shock next. I'll have to buy another Venom Shock in the future.

    My third Motiv ball and many more to come. #SHOCKTHEWORLD #getMOTIVated

    Venom Shock

    My first Motiv symm. I'm rev dominant & on the long patterns, this ball is a beast! I don't have issues bowling on 45ft anymore because I kept moving left, missed right & this ball hooks a lot. Drilled it 55 x 4 1/2 x 27. Definitely will get another one for short pin layout.

    I’m a right handed backup bowler. My ball was drilled for the way I throw, so it curves similar to a lefty. It took soon getting used to but my average continues to improve. Highly recommended this ball!
