Motiv Primal Fear

Everyone fears something, so give your competition something to fear with the Motiv Primal Fear. This bowling ball was designed for medium to heavy oil conditions and offers a massive late hooking motion. The engine in this ball is the successful Impulse V2 core. This core creates a powerful skid-flip reaction as well as a incredible backend reaction. The core is combined with the powerful Voracity Pearl Reactive coverstock that has been finished with a 5000 grit LSP that offers clean down-lane motion as well as good continuation. This ball is very aggressive and angular!

Pba bowler Greg gunter.

I'm A PBA member, I like this ball alot.
I use this ball for carry down. It opens up the lanes for me. I have shot 299, 280, and a 298 with it so for. High series is 781. This season.
Of you need a ball to open up the lanes for carry
Down this is your ball.

It's also a good ball for any kind of sport shots.
Especially vages. If you don't have any hand get it sanded. If you do leave it like it is. I'm very impressed. Thanks Motiv

Handles more oil than Primal Rage, Great Continuation, Stronger Overall compared to Primal Rage

Fear the Primal Fear

The Primal Fear is the new upper mid performance ball for moderate angle for medium to heavy oil conditions. For those who felt the Primal Rage didn't hook early enough or didn't have enough overall hook than this is the ball for you! The Primal Fear is much stronger in the midlane to combat more oil than the Primal Rage. It also continues much better in the backend to allow for easy adjustments on the approach. Compared to the Trident, the Primal Fear has similar midlane motion but it is cleaner through the front part of the lane and is weaker overall by about 3 boards. This ball will compliment both the Primal Rage and Trident very nicely! The Fear has great continuation and hook potential for every style and caliber of bowler.

Motiv Primal Fear

Motiv Primal Fear

Motiv Bowling has introduced the New Primal Fear. I drilled my Primal Fear just like i drill all my symmetrical balls (65 x 4 1/2 x 35). I love this layout because it gives me plenty of flare without sacrificing down-lane hook for my style. For this release i went with a pin up layout. I have used this layout on a lot of previous balls like the Motiv Primal Rage and Motiv Primal Remix. The Primal Fear is the 6th generation Primal. It introduces the new Voracity Pearl Reactive Coverstock , which raps around the same dual density Impulse V2 Symmetric Core as used on the Primal Rage Remix, Primal Rage and Primal Scream. The box finish is a 5000 grit LSP (Laser Scan Polished). The Primal Fear has RG of 2.55 with 0.050 differential. The Primal Fear is stronger in the midlane and can handle more oil than the Primal Rage. Also the Primal Fear has a very continuous motion through the pins. The Motiv Paranoia and the Primal Rage to had similar ball motion, where as i didn't use my Primal Rage as much. The Paranoia and Primal Fear is a great compliment to each other, when my Paranoia can't create enough shape the Primal Fear will be your go to ball to handle more oil. If your looking for something that is clean through the midlane and continues through the pins, the Primal Fear is the ball for you.

Question: how will this ball react on low ball speed (11--13)? i am 73 yrs old

10/12/2016 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer: This ball is designed for good length before it starts hooking so it would work well for someone with a slower ball speed. You would want to avoid a ball that reacts earlier or in the midlane too aggressively because with your speed that ball can roll too early and not give you good continuation.
