Motiv Hydra

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.

Question:

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

Have an answer to this question?

Answer:

Yes, it will definitely give you the length that you are looking for!

7/31/2018 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Question:

How does the Hydra compare to the Shadow Ops by 900 Global on light to medium oil lane conditions?

8/25/2018 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer:

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.

Question:

will this be much different than the primal rage ?

9/24/2018 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer:

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.
