The Motiv Hydra bowling ball is designed for high friction house shots and rev heavy bowlers as well as tournament players who need a performance ball for drier lane conditions. The beast of a bowling ball can strike from deep in the lane as well as generate more entry angles. This is all accomplished through the combination of clean and angular Hexion LFP Reactive coverstock and the high RG/low differential Halogen core. This pairing produces easy length with head turning backend motion. The 5000 Grit LSP finish on the Hydra helps it read the lane more effectively and produces better predictability on the backend.
I have mine drilled pin down I was practicing withing Monday the first game I shot 220 I moved my feet a couple of boards i was probably around 30 with my feet amd i was getting the ball put to about the 5 board the second game and I shot 300.
I have my hydra drilled pin down I went 220 the first game with it notice it has alot of backend on it and I moved left with my feet about 3 maybe 4 boards. I was standing about 28 and I was getting out to the 5 board I shot 300 the second game.
How is this on medium oiled lanes6/30/2018 - By Jack
How is this ball for two handed bowlers with high revs on dry lanes?7/11/2018 - By John
I like to either play on the outside line either 8 or 11 board and will the motive Hydra work on this line?7/24/2018 - By Dn
I use the venom Shock pearl now. Pin above fingers and bridge. On medium lanes this ball hooks way to much. Polished it and created a little more length but still hooks way too much. Will the Hydra drilled with same layout give me the length I’m looking for? I’m wanting to play outside of 8 board little swing or straight down up the boards.7/27/2018 - By Spartacus
Would the Motive Hydra differ from a Hy Road Peral if I drill it the same?7/31/2018 - By Fred
Is the Hydra like the blue radical ridiculous?8/18/2018 - By Fred
How does the Hydra compare to the Shadow Ops by 900 Global on light to medium oil lane conditions?8/25/2018 - By Dub93
They will both be pretty similar on the reaction. The only difference will be the finish on the bowling balls. The Hydra will have more length than the Shadow Ops.8/27/2018 - By Bowling.Com Staff
will this be much different than the primal rage ?9/24/2018 - By arm dad
This ball is going to be more suited for lighter oil conditions. The Primal Rage is better in medium and heavier oil and would be more aggressive than this ball.9/27/2018 - By Bowling.Com Staff
I have the Motiv Venom Cobra. Will the Hydra be a good compliment ball?3/4/2019 - By Arfield, S.C.
My Forza SS is great for the first 2 games but too much ball for the 3rd. I’m looking for something reliable when lanes break down3/10/2019 - By JT
Is this ball good for deep hooking action3/20/2019 - By ROC
would this ball work for a straight bowler8/31/2019 - By spareking
This ball is designed to have a medium hook potential on lighter oil conditions. If you throw this ball straight then it will go straight but if you spin the ball any then it will want to hook on the lanes some. You can get a less expensive straight ball if you wanted the ball to just go straight. Look in the spare ball category to get the best price straight ball options.9/4/2019 - By Bowling.Com Staff
Is the Hydra good for medium to dry lanes ?9/17/2019 - By Sting
About 10 miles per hours is a good ball for me11/10/2019 - By Tiger
This ball is designed to go long on the lanes which would be good if you have a lower ball speed. This would work well for you in lighter oil and possibly some medium oil conditions due to your speed.11/12/2019 - By Bowling.Com Staff
