The brand new MOTIV Top Thrill takes high friction performance to a new level! This latest advancement for dry lanes offers a boosted core and brand new coverstock, a significant step up from the original Thrill models in both core and coverstock technology. The Top Thrill provides bowlers with more options for attacking drier lanes and higher friction lane surfaces.

Developed as a dry lane complement to the Infusion reactive cover, the Turmoil XP shell provides as much down lane shape with less traction in the oil to allow for use on dry lanes. When Infusion reactive balls are too strong, the Top Thrill will be a great option for even the most competitive bowlers.

The Flux core in the original Thrill is replaced in the Top Thrill with a modified Halogen core previously found in higher performance Motiv bowling balls. The new Halogen V2 has a slightly higher RG than the original with a lower differential. The Halogen V2 is uniquely suited for dry lanes, but with a strong enough core to allow for more angles of play and significantly more versatility in drilling options.

When To Use:

Speed Dominant Bowlers: When speed dominant bowlers encounter conditions so scorched that they need a dry lane ball, it’s important to have one that is developed for performance. The Top Thrill is developed to provide shape on dry lanes, not just deliver at the cheapest price or just be the prettiest ball on the wall.

Balanced Bowlers: For balanced bowlers, a dry lane ball is an important part of a tournament arsenal. Low volume oil patterns and high friction surfaces necessitate balls with higher rg’s and lower differentials. The Top Thrill is designed to fit in a competitive bowler’s progression just below the Venom and Supra line.

Rev Dominant Bowlers: For bowlers with exceptionally low speed or high rev rates, the Top Thrill allows manageable angles on normal house patterns and sport shots. A rev dominant bowler so often is forced to play much deeper with steep angles even on house shots due to their ball speed to rev rate ratio. The Top Thrill solves that problem.

Designed for lighter oil conditions, the Thrill provides length and control when lanes are dry and friction is high.

Featuring the new Flux weight block, the Thrill has a higher RG to delay ball reaction and create the length needed on light oil patterns.  It also has a very low differential to minimize track flare and provide ball motion control at the backend of the lane.

The new Agility XP (Striking Precision) Reactive cover stock on the Thrill complements the performance attributes of the Flux weight block making it ideal for dry lanes.  Both the Wine/Magenta Pearl and the Blue/Purple Pearl Thrill balls feature a 5500 Grit LSP surface finish.

The Thrill is available at an incredibly attractive price point, but it’s not just a great option for bowlers buying their first ball.  We’ve been very intentional about designing a piece that higher rev competitive bowlers will appreciate because it pushes further down the lane before making a move on dry lanes.
