Motiv Raptor Fury

Introducing the solid Motiv Raptor Fury – now even more untamed and aggressive than ever. A true legend in its determined mastery of the bowling lanes, the Raptor series returns to unleash pure havoc. With its cutting-edge Leverage XFS solid coverstock and the relentless Affliction V2 core, the Raptor Fury stands as the most potent symmetrical choice in the MOTIV collection. It's an absolute essential in any bowler's arsenal.Carrying forward the legacy of its predecessors, the Leverage XFS coverstock technology has been designed to dominate the contemporary bowling landscape. Recent enhancements to the Leverage technology dig into the oil with precision, providing a touch more length and remarkable energy retention compared to the Jackal Ambush. This translates into enhanced down-lane motion and increased adaptability, shaping the Leverage XFS into a controlled benchmark tool for handling substantial oil patterns.The Affliction V2 core, the mightiest symmetrical core in MOTIV Bowling's arsenal, is a testament to the Raptor Fury's prowess. With its rapid rotation and low RG (Radius of Gyration), the Affliction V2 core delivers mid-lane strength and unmatched control. A remarkable differential of 0.055 equates to incredible flare potential for the Raptor Fury. While many bowlers tend to gravitate toward asymmetrical bowling balls for heavy oil conditions, the versatility of a symmetrical core presents a distinct advantage, offering exceptional continuation and reliability on the lanes.

Best Symmetric of the year

Motiv keeps its streak of impressive balls going with the Raptor Fury. The color scheme is nice, with the Affliction V2 core wrapped with a faster response leverage cover is an absolute winner. Very impressed with the versatility from fresh to transition to the burn it can handle it all. The Fury is so good it replaced a couple balls in my bag the Primal and my OG pride. Easy revving but yet some how clean through the Midlane and enough drive to get the job done. From league to tournaments this one should always make the bag.

REVS: 435



Motiv designed the strongest symmetrical option in the current line with the RAPTOR FURY.
First off the shelf appeal on this ball is amazing. I love RED.
The FURY in 15lbs sits at a 2.48 RG and .055 DIFF.
The return of the AFFLICTION V2 core which is the strongest core used by Motiv provides excellent mid lane read with a smooth but continuous motion through the pins.
The core is wrapped in the LEVERAGE XFS cover a tweaked version from the AMBUSH.
Compared to the Ambush, the FURY will give bowlers more length and energy retention.
The FURY will also provide more down lane motion.

The FURY will provide a benchmark motion on higher volumes.

For me, this ball gives me the motion I like to see from a big sym. Early read with smooth motion. Playing straighter and taking some hand out of the ball I am able to control over/under ball reaction. The FURY blends the pattern perfectly.

For those Speed Dominant bowlers the FURY can be the first ball out of the bag on high/med high volumes.

For LOWER REV bowlers that like to play straight, this ball will give you control as well as a blended motion.

Higher rev bowlers that like to open up will love the control this ball provides.

How will this ball compare to Brunswick's Perfect Mindset?

Hi Kevin! While these are similar, the Motiv Raptor Fury would have a higher hook potential than the Brunswick Perfect Mindset.

How will this ball act on light to medium oil

11/9/2023 - By

Have an answer to this question?


Hello! The Motiv Raptor Fury works best on heavy oil lane conditions, so on light oil it would read the lanes too early then flatten out.

I have a DV8 brutal collision and a storm DNA as the two current strongest balls in my bag, how will this ball stand out versus those two?

11/11/2023 - By

Have an answer to this question?


Out of the box this would react closer to the DNA due to the similar out of box finishes. The Brutal Collision had a compound finish to give it a little more length while this option and the DNA were duller to read earlier on the lanes. Also, the big difference will be the weight block is symmetric on this ball. They keep the weight block with an early read and high flare potential but the symmetric block will be a little more versatile and controllable compared to the asymmetric blocks usually seen in the higher performance lines.
