The Motiv Forge line of bowling balls continues with the Motiv Forge Fire. This high performance ball introduces the Infusion Hybrid Reactive coverstock which offers a faster reaction to the friction on the lane than its predessesor, the original Forge. The Forge Fire also utilizes the low RG and high differential symmetrical Detonator core. This ball is great at creating angle for various types of bowlers when facing medium to heavy oil.

Will this ball be good in wet dry conditions
This ball is rated for medium to heavy oil. It will not work well in dry conditions.
I'm using g a 14 lb motiv combat tank and bowling on mid-heavy oil and I'm leaving alot of pocket 5 pins. Would you expect tmis
A combat tank is not designed to have a large hook potential because it is a urethane cover. Because it is not very much hook it is designed for lighter oil so in medium to heavy oil you would like not get much hook from that ball. If you are coming in the pocket straighter then it will be harder to get pin action and get strikes. You would do better to go to a reactive ball like this Forge and if you have to swing it out and let it come into the pocket with more angle so that it can get better pin action. If you get into lighter oil conditions later in the night you could try the Combat Tank again but I would wait to bring it back out until the lanes are pretty light oil.

I have forge fire and a roto grip dare devil the dare devil seems stronger in the back end what can I do to surface of the ball make it stronger
The Dare Devil did have a polished finish out of the box so this polished finish will help the Dare Devil go a little longer and store all of its hook for the backend to make a sharper backend. The Forge Fire has a 4000 grit finish which gives you pretty good length but it starts hooking a little earlier so if you want to get that sharper hook you may have to polish the Forge Fire to help it go longer for a sharper backend.
How is this ball any good for a down and in shot?
This ball has a great reaction for a down and in shot giving more a more angled reaction than the original.
Is the forge fire two handed
You can technically use almost any ball for a two handed release. Two handed releases typically have a higher rev rate. If you have a high ball speed too then this ball would do well for you in medium to heavy oil. If you have a slower ball speed then you may want to stick to mostly heavy oil with this ball.
I currently use the United Revolt can I expect a similar reaction with this ball?
This ball will not react quite as late as the United Revolt. It will start to read a little earlier and it will have a smoother hook reaction than the United Revolt which was very angular.
I have the Rouge Assasin as my first out of the bag. I am wondering if this would be a good ball for heavier oil than the rouge can handle and if it would be a good one two combo
I think you would have to bump up to the Alpha Jackal or the Trident Abyss to get a stronger hook potential more suited for heavy oil conditions.
Would this be good for a rev dominant player on 44+ ft oil patterns?
Yes, this could work well for a rev dominant bowler in a longer oil pattern. It is designed to give you good length so it will not jump too early on you in heavier oil.
