Motiv Pride Empire

The Motiv Pride Empire high-performance bowling ball introduces the Propulsion Pearl Reactive coverstock which offers more backend speed and angle. This coverstock gets through the front of the lane easily while maintaining energy for a unique down-lane reaction. Like the original Pride, the Pride Empire utilizes the Dominion core which is an asymmetric core but has the controllability of a symmetric core. This ball has an out-of-the-box 5000 Grit LSP finish which performs well on medium volumes of oil with a higher friction surface. This ball is a beast that demands respect!

Great compliment to the Pride

The new Pride Empire is a fantastic compliment to the original Pride, providing a very similar shape in the midlane. The Empire sets itself apart with the backend continuation when compared to the Pride. Drilled 60-5”-35 gave me great control and predictability being able to control the lane front to back when transition hit. This ball fits right in the middle of Motiv’s current ball lineup giving the player a very versatile ball when the lanes are a bit on the dry side.

A great pearl addition to the line!

The Pride is an amazing addition to the line and especially the Medium oil category on our ball guide! This new Propulsion pearl cover is a great advancement in the pearl technology that MOTIV has been developing. You'll see hints of the control that Infusion HV Pearl had provided in the past, while providing that stunning backend reaction that we've all grown to love out of Infusion Pearl and Infusion MVP. The Dominion core paired with this new cover creates an awesome and versatile transition shape. The core wants to read the midlane while the cover wants to rip off the spot downlane creating a ball that clears the fronts easily while not losing midlane traction and still maintaining a ton of energy to change direction on the backend. I am super excited to throw this ball more and more! Another home run from MOTIV!

Pride Empire

The Pride Empire is the newest ball added to our amazing arsenal from Motiv bowling. The Pride Empire has the Dominion™ asymmetrical core, also featured in the original Pride. Wrapped around the Propulsion Pearl Reactive cover stock. This Pride Empire gets through the fronts extremely well, and has a sharp response to friction down lane. The versatility in this ball is incredible, you can add polish to make the ball quicker down lane response or scoff the cover up and make it an earlier piece to the bag.
