Motiv is ascending the boundaries of entry level performance with the Ascent Apex. For the Ascent Apex, Motiv modified the original Fusion coverstock to make the Fusion XL (xtra long) coverstock. They have finished the cover with a 5000 grit and polish. The core of this ball is the Recon which has high RG and low Differential that provides length, controlled track flare, and a more angular move on the backend. All of these factors combine to make a great entry level bowling ball!
The new Ascent Apex is about 3 boards more hook then the Blue Ascent Apex and slightly more angular. This ball is great for dry and broken down lanes. This ball is very clean through the fronts making it get down the lane with ease. It saves a lot of energy down lane especially playing that deep inside line.
This ball is just awesome...it outhooks my c300 crazy antics meant for med-heavy...motiv is really impressing me with their balls....highly recommended
