Motiv has loaded the Forza with all sorts of new bowling ball technology. This ball features the Helix Solid Reactive cover stock that generates the friction needed to read the mid-lane and produce continuation. The Torx weight block offers an RG and differential that Motiv hasn't see before. This weight block design allows this ball to rev up with ease and produce a lot of track flare. With the combination of the Helix solid cover and the Torx core this ball will be smooth and powerful on medium oil conditions.
Description: The Forza is an all new ball, in every way. The inside consists of the new Torx Core, while the outside consists of the new solid Helix Coverstock. The Forza also adds for the first time the all new MOTIV Badge logo, which gives it great shelf appeal.
Reaction: With any new release there is a lot of anticipation like what does it do and does it do what it's supposed to do? It's very simple the Forza provides predictability and versatility. It gets into an early heavy roll and has great continuation. This ball provides continuation through the pins that you just don't see when you hear a ball is going to be "Smoother". My first layout (60X5.5X35) was straighter through the front and a controlled change in direction once it hits friction, with good continuation. My second layout (45X5X65) was sooner in the front and middle part of the lane with a very strong arcing motion, allowing it to be very continuous. So far, on multiple patterns I have liked the second layout better, it really allows the ball to stand out and do what it's intended to do.
Comparisons: The Forza is well complimented with other balls in production by MOTIV. To start, the Venom Shock is cleaner and responds to friction just a little faster, giving it less overall hook potential. Next, the Sigma Sting provides a cleaner and stronger motion downlane, with a close hook potential. Finally, the Tribal Fire is much cleaner and has a much faster response to friction but, less hook potential.
Summary: This release is great for several reasons…A lot of times house patterns present a very wet/dry condition that tends to either make it look more difficult than it really is or carry is just brutal. This ball has looked really good on what people refer to as a typical house shot because of how well it blends patterns. In addition because of the shape and continuation this ball creates I have already found it useful on several lengths of more challenging patterns. #Overdrive

The Motiv Forza has now become a favorite of mine. Featuring the Helix Solid Reactive coverstock and the all new Torx weight block, this maybe one of the most controllable balls I have ever thrown. The Forza is unique to the Motiv line because it is the only ball to have a mid-range core at 2.50. This makes the ball read the middle of the lane very well with great control. The cover is generally used in heavier amounts of oil.
For me, I use this ball pretty much all the time! It is the first ball I put on the rack. It is my go to ball because I can use many different angles with this ball with ease. I am really impressed with how late in the day I can use this ball and still get the corners out easily as I move left on the lane on any kind of condition. If I do end up balling down, I usually go to the covert revolt just to get the ball through the front a little better.
The Forza brings great control to the Motiv line that makes the pins look like they weigh nothing.

Smoothness. Control. Continuation. Those are all gears that the new Motiv Forza gives you to handle the lanes. The early, predictable motion that the Forza gives you is a break from the more recent 'skid-flip' equipment that has come out which is a welcomed addition to keep the Motiv line up as complete as possible. The brand new technology combination of the Helix Solid Reactive coverstock (finished at 3000 LSS) and the Torx core (2.50 RG, .051 Diff) presents a powerful ball motion with ultimate predictability. On the fresh my Forza tracks quite early in the midlane thereby giving me a true read of any friction that is there; this makes reading the transitions very easy. Once it gets to the end of the pattern the ball makes a very smooth move towards the pocket and then drives through the pins strongly. Even on the most wet-dry conditions I have encountered this ball tames the pattern; it gives a nice blend of traction in the oil and control in the dry. If you want a ball that will be your benchmark for reading the lanes, or something that will give you predictability even on the toughest of medium oil conditions, get yourself in gear and grab a Motiv Forza.
