Motiv Blue Coral Venom

The Motiv Blue Coral Venom is the first hybrid version of this seasoned mid-performance ball line. This version was designed to offer versatility as well as a benchmark reaction when facing fairly high friction conditions. This bowling ball offers more traction and a stronger and more continuous down-lane motion in oil than the Venom Recoil. The Coercion MFH Reactive cover found on this Venom Blue Coral bowling ball creates plenty of length through the front part of the lane, then reacts at the mid-lane with a smooth and controllable shift. The hybrid coverstock offers traction in the oil while maintaining control down lane. The Gear APG core is asymmetrical and has a low differential which enables the ball to strike the pins with less angle because of the more aggressive coverstock.

Gives the Shock a run for its money!

Given the massive popularity of not only the Venom Recoil, but the Venom line in general, I had really high hopes for this one. The Blue Coral Venom or BCV for short, has easily become a top 2 Venom of all time for me, with the Shock being the other of the two. I can't truly decide which one I like more as the Shock has truly stood the test of time, but the BCV is insanely close. Even though I find them both to be absolutely amazing, I do find they have differences which makes me comfortable taking both to league or a tournament. The Shock is a bit rounder for me (layout is 60x5x30) and definitely reads earlier, while the BCV (layout is 70x5x30) is a bit cleaner and very responsive downlane. The BCV is the perfect step up from the Fatal Venom if it's too clean, and a perfect step down from the Shock if it's too round or too early. If you have a need for a mid-level, quicker responding ball, or if you just really enjoy the Venom line in general, this is not one you want to skip out on!

Most backend Venom to date

Motiv is on one serious heater with the latest releases. Blue Coral Venom is straight fire out of the box, very similar to OG Shock but more of it. Compared to the Venom Recoil it is a bit cleaner with a more continuous shape. Definitely a must have if you are a fan of the venom line. I will be pulling this one first out of the bag at league and medium sport patterns. Super versatile ball that a player can stay in for the whole block. Motiv hybrid cover stocks are on point lately and this one is a sure-fire winner.

Blue Coral Venom Review

The Blue Coral Venom is the first hybrid asymmetric found in one of Motiv’s most popular lines the Venom line. The newest addition the Blue Coral Venom is very versatile and gives a great benchmark reaction for higher friction surfaces. Compared to the other asymmetric Venom the Venom Recoil, the Blue Coral Venom gives a stronger and more continuous down lane motion. It’s a tad less than our popular benchmark piece the Pride but is better on higher friction than the Pride.

Question:


What is the difference between Fatal and this one? I'm looking for a transition ball to compliment my Ghost

3/11/2022 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer:


The Coral will start reading a little earlier on the lane than the Fatal Venom. The Coral will be more similar to the reaction of your Ghost but will work better in medium to lighter oil.

Is this 13 lb blue coral venom ball a good ball for slow bowlers 9mph

You may prefer the Fatal Venom which will give you more length for a slower ball speed.

Question:


I am a beginner (stoker) with little revolutions and 17 ball speed. Mainly light to medium oil lanes. Which would be better for me the Blue Coral or the Fatal?

4/8/2022 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer:


If you are speed dominant then you may prefer the Blue Coral. The Fatal Venom would help someone who is rev dominant more by getting down the lane further before hooking.

Question:


Stuck between the motiv pride and the coral venom I’m a tweener with mid to high rev and mid ball speed (13-14mph) trying to figure out which would be a the better benchmark

4/26/2022 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer:


I think the Pride would be slightly better benchmark type ball for Motiv. That is right in the middle of their scale and it is not too weak or not too strong but will be a great option to throw and get a good read of the lanes. That is not say the Coral Venom is not a great option too but I would lean to the Pride as a slightly better benchmark ball for Motivs lineup.

Question:


Currently use the Iron forge how would this compare?

4/30/2022 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer:


This would be a little smoother reaction on the lanes but also more suited for medium to lighter oil while the Iron Forge gave you a little more length but was stronger on the backend and handled more medium to heavy oil.
