The Motive Ascent Pearl is a continuation to the Ascent line that features the Recon Core and MOTIVator-Z Reactive coverstock. Finished with a 2000 grit Wet Sand and Power Gel Polish, this ball will travel easily through the front part of the lane while still retaining its angular backend reaction.
I was skeptical, thinking this ball would hook too much. I'm so glad I took the chance. This ball is outstanding on light oil or short oil patterns, exactly as it is stated in the ad. This ball also hits the pins like a monster. Right out of the box, first game in my league, with only throwing a couple of practice shots, 211. Highly recommended to anyone looking for a ball for light oil and/or short oil patterns.
This ball really performs on league shots and medium to dry patterns. I have not tried it on tournament or oily lanes so I can't provide any comments except this is a good addition to those who looking to build arsenals.
Second league game with this ball was 278. All my other equipment was to aggressive for the lane condition. on dry condition or short oil this ball can still break alot.
