Be the first to know
This is the first ball I've ever bought. I've been bowling regularly for about 6 months, and my average runs about 130.
This ball is great for learning how to generate hook. I can throw straight up around15 or I can move left to about 30 and throw right. Either way, (assuming I manage to make a decent shot), it rolls right into the pocket and explodes the rack.
Why did I wait to get this ball?! Everyone says this is THE Motiv ball to get. I started with a few others, and finally scooped one of these up.
My first impression, Versatile. Second, Predictable. You can lay this ball out on the lane and it just goes to work. Inside, outside, straight up and in. Every ball has its limits, but this ball doesn't quit.
It pairs up nicely with my Coral Venom in some conditions and in others I find it is great to lead with, and roll over to my Supra or Fatal Venom.
This is one ball that I will be picking up a "spare" of for when the VERY sad day comes that it is retired. And I'm not one to buy duplicate equipment.
My favorite ball of all time. I just ordered two more just to have for the future. I know have 18 Motiv balls!
I just got back into bowling after a 22 year hiatus. After researching, decided to get a Venom Shock as my first ball back in the game. All I can say is WOW, in just a few week’s time, I’ve already bowled a 256 and my avg four weeks into the season is a 182! I may be a Motiv fan for life!!
The Shock is the first out of my bag everywhere I go. What a benchmark piece this is for me. Very very consistent read and roll. After about 3 shots it lets me know where to play or what ball is next. I only throw about 15 mph but can literally play any part of the lane on the fresh with this ball. Smooth read then gets angular. Love this ball. Man it looks great going down the lane too. I ball down to the Fatal when the Shock gets too strong and usually barely have to move.
