Motiv Ripcord Velocity vs Fatal Venom Bowling Balls | In Depth Comparison From MotivLou

Todays video is the battle of the symmetrical pearls in the Motiv line! The all new Ripcord Velocity and the Fatal Venom!!

These two balls are incredible, and I wanted to show you a great comparison video from two of my favorite symmetrical pearls –

Motiv Fatal Venom bowling ball

The Fatal Venom provides a deadly combination of length with an angular strike on light-medium oil conditions. It features the latest MOTIV® cover technology and the outstanding original Gear core from the Venom Shock.

The Gear core gives the Fatal Venom both low RG and low differential so it spins super-fast with minimal track flare. The result is a stable ball motion with massive energy retention.

Utilizing the latest Infusion Pearl Reactive cover, the Fatal Venom offers great length and angularity. These traction characteristics joined with the control of the Gear core provide a clean and moderately angular motion that is ideal for scoring on drier lanes.

Motiv Ripcord Velocity bowling ball

It’s all about angle! From core to cover, the Ripcord™ Velocity is built to fly fast and corner hard.

The dual-density Oblivion™ core is a complex work of engineering unlike anything else in the world. It features a massive flip-block to make the Ripcord™ Velocity come off the oil pattern as violently as possible. And with a high RG and moderate differential the Oblivion™ core is dialed in for versatility on medium oil conditions. “We’ve had this core for a few years now and I feel like we are still learning tricks that we can do with it,” said MOTIV® Tour Rep Nick Pahr.

To take full advantage of the dynamic characteristics of the Oblivion core, MOTIV® is featuring new Infusion™ MVP Reactive cover stock on the Ripcord Velocity. Evolving from the technology used on the Fatal Venom, Infusion MVP produces easy length and an unbelievable change of direction down lane. “This new cover technology is allowing us to shape the ball and create angles that we haven’t seen before”, said Brett Spangler of MOTIV. Tuned with a 5500 Grit LSP finish, the Ripcord Velocity has speed to spare.

When To Use:

  • Speed Dominant: Speed dominant players will use the Velocity as their burn ball.  What the Velocity offers is more angle down lane than anything else available.  For speed dominant players, that is the last crucial piece in the progression, a ball that can make the corner when they have to use angle.
  • Balanced: When balanced bowlers need help through the front and angle through the pins, the Ripcord Velocity is the best option.  For balanced bowlers on higher friction surfaces where the front of the lane is an issue, this Ripcord will have no problem giving the length needed with a surprising pop down lane.
  • Rev Dominant: For players who have rev rate to spare, the Ripcord Velocity is like cheating.  The incredible angles this ball can create for a rev dominant player are something nobody else on the lane will be able to mimic.  When getting steep is key, rev dominant players will have an unfair advantage with the Ripcord Velocity.
