Motiv Fatal Venom

The Motiv Fatal Venom mid-performance bowling ball offers a lethal pairing of length and angular strike. The combination of the Infusion Pearl Reactive coverstock and Gear core is best matched on light to medium oil conditions. The Gear core provides a low RG and low differential which results in an extra fast spin motion with little track flare resulting in a stable ball motion and big energy retention. The pearl reactive version of the Infusion cover is what provides awesome length and angularity. This bowling ball offers a clean and fairly angular ball motion that is perfect for drier lanes.

Fatal Venom

The layout I used on my Fatal Venom was 60x5x30. I have thrown this ball a ton since it arrived in the mail. When the lanes hook this ball is in play! I can throw this ball on a range of pattern lengths, sport/house shots. When comparing this ball to others in the line, for me, it provides the same amount of hook as the Venom Shock, however it is a little longer and quicker off the friction. Comparing to the Supra, the Fatal Venom is earlier than the Supra and it is also more ball overall. I have had a lot of people asking what the difference is to the Venom Shock Pearl. From what I have gathered, the Fatal Venom is about 3-4 boards stronger and provides a sharper, more angular response. I would suggest having one of these in your bag, especially when the lanes are going through transition. Also, the color combo is nice too!

Venom strikes again

Fatal Venom steps into the Venom line of balls like it owns the house. It is so clean in the fronts and then comes roaring back like a champ. On mid to dry lanes this ball let's you move deeper and get the ball down lane and know that it will turn the corner with power. This is a ball for every bowler out there.
Thanks

Fatal Venom

Anyone that loves the Original Venom Shock will definitely LOVE the Fatal Venom. The GEAR core with the combination of the new INFUSION Pearl Reactive cover is a successful hit!
As a tweener, this ball has provided me with better length and ball for later on in the tournament block and especially light-medium oil House Shots.
The finish of the ball Out the Box provided me A LOT of angular bite initially, and a little break point. However, after manipulating the cover stock with 500, 1500, 3000 grit surface pads I was able to tame the angular motion down and still keep the drive through the pocket.

Question:

how does ball compare with motiv carbon

10/22/2020 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer:

The Octane Carbon is listed as an upper mid performance ball versus the Fatal Venom which is a mid performance so this ball may not have as strong of a hook potential but they do have very similar length and sharp backend.

Question:

its symetrical correct ? and please compare this to Phaze III .. THANKS

11/11/2020 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer:

Yes, this has a symmetric weight block. The Phaze III is considered an upper mid performance ball while the Fatal Venom is a mid performance so the Phaze III will be a stronger hook reaction. Because of this the Phaze III is more for medium oil only while the Fatal Venom is medium to lighter oil.

Question:

How fast should you throw the ball for the ball to work?

1/23/2021 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer:

This ball is designed to hook very late on the lanes so if you have a high ball speed you will also need to have a high rev rate to help this work. This would be a better match for someone who was rev dominant or a slower ball speed because it has excellent length.

Question:

Do I have this ball drilled at my local pro shop or can I have it driiled when I order?

3/13/2021 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer:

We do offer a custom drilling option for some bowling balls in certain weights. If it is offered it will be available just below the weight selection box as one of the extra options. If you are not sure of your exact measurements then you would not be able to get the ball drilled through us and would have to get the ball drilled at your local proshop.

Question:

I have the fatal venom now and love the ball its my first ball out of the bag for tournaments and league was think of adding the shock to my bag for the drier lane condition

3/18/2021 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer:

The difference in performance between the two Venom bowling balls will not be a large difference so if you need something to work in drier lanes you could either go down to the Thrill line or go to a urethane option instead of a reactive resin.

Question:

How will this ball react in nationals with heavy oil

4/6/2021 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer:

This ball is designed from medium to lighter oil so if you were to use this in heavier oil it would skid more down the lane and may not have a lot of hook potential. It may not be strong enough to come back in heavy conditions.

Question:

Considering getting a Venom Fatal to add to my Jackal Flash, and Forge Fire current lineup. Looking for that 3rd game ball for the knockout punch. Is the Venom Fatal the ball that can do that?

4/6/2021 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer:

Yes, this is a great option for medium to lighter conditions later in the night when your other bowling balls are hooking too much or rolling out too soon on the lane.
