The Motiv Revolt Vengeance combines the Turmoil HFH Hybrid Reactive coverstock with the Vanquish weight block to create a ball that is powerful on medium-heavy oil conditions. The coverstock combines solid and pearl to produce medium length with big continuation. The weight block takes low RG and high differential to create a generous hook potential.
The Revolt Vengeance is the second ball in the Revolt line. It features the same Vanquish weight block as the Covert Revolt, and has the Turmoil HFH Hybrid Reactive coverstock. The Revolt Vengeance is a ball that can be used in both the oily and dry conditions.
What I Use it For:
What I like about this ball is how smooth it is in the mid-lane. I feel like I can control the motion very well and have no problems playing straight or opening my angles without losing motion through the pins. That being said it is a ball that I place right in the middle of my arsenal between the Forza and Covert Revolt. Because of where it fits in my bag, it is a very good transition ball, allowing me to go to it with confidence when losing a look with a different ball.
Smooth Controllable Motion, Ability to Play Different Angles, No Problems through the Pins.
The Vengeance Revolt is a must buy because of how controllable it is. If you want consistent scores from tournament to tournament, this ball should be in your bag.

Motiv's covert revolution took hold of the bowling world and now its coming out with a vengeance! The Revolt Vengeance is the next step for the powerfully successful Vanquish core (2.47 RG, .056 Diff) and is an amazing compliment to the Covert Revolt. By wrapping Vanquish in the new Turmoil HFH coverstock we get the glide through the heads of a pearl but the control and power of a solid through the mids and backend. The layout I chose for this ball is a staple in my repertoire as it gives me control without sacrificing performance, something the Vengeance not only embracing, but takes to a whole new level. This easily gets through the heads better than the Covert for me but still gives a strong midlane read, a great indicator of a new benchmark ball. At the breakpoint this hybrid shell has stored enough energy that I get a very strong response to the friction and phenomenal hitting power through the pins. This ball combines the best features of the Covert (control, hitting power) with more length and greater recovery down lane; truly is a hybrid reaction! It has been a long while since I have seen a ball that can read the mids this well and not bleed the energy that takes away from the backend reaction. If you're looking for a new benchmark for medium to heavy lane conditions, join the Motiv Revolution and strike with a Vengeance!

Description: The Revolt Vengeance is armed with the same Vanquish core as the Covert Revolt. However, this time around instead of a solid coverstock it utilizes the brand NEW Turmoil HFH Hybrid Reactive coverstock. The Revolt Vengeance colors consists of black solid and pearl gray with neon green accented logos to give it great shelf appeal.
Reaction: Two of MOTIV's all-time popular pieces are the Covert Revolt and Primal Rage (#redball). Those two balls are also on opposite sides of the shape spectrum. The Covert Revolt gave bowlers hook and control, while the Primal Rage gave bowlers length and a new meaning to backend. Well, the Revolt Vengeance is meant to give you the perfect combination of both! To me this is what I would consider to be a stronger version of a benchmark ball. My first layout (45X4.5X65) read the middle part of the lane sooner but, the response down lane was slower than that of my second layout. The benefits of the initial layout were that it allowed me to start further in on the puddle but, still allowed for some nice controlled continuation at the breakpoint. My second layout (60X5.5X35) eased through the middle part of the lane and responded much faster at the breakpoint. I felt this pattern brought out the characteristics of what the real intention of the Revolt Vengeance is meant for.
Comparisons: Yes, MOTIV honestly nailed it when getting a reaction in between the Covert Revolt and Primal Rage. The Covert Revolt is much more even throughout the lane and overall provides a little more hook potential. The Primal Rage responded even faster down lane in addition to a little less hook potential compared to the Revolt Vengeance. Finally, the Venom Shock reads the lane earlier and provides a smoother response downlane with less hook potential. I can say that there is no overlapping when it comes MOTIV's releases.
Summary: This isn't a ball that is condition specific, as I said before this is a stronger type of benchmark ball for me. I can say so far I really like this ball on the fresh, it provides the ideal length and response down lane resulting in my favorite type of shape. I also feel this is a piece that is going to see action from start to finish because of the shape it creates.
