CLOSEOUT ITEM INFO
Motiv has made some great solid reactive bowling balls and the Ripcord Flight is no different. This ball was designed to produce powerful traction in oil while reserving energy for impressive continuation down lane on medium oil. The Oblivion core is dual-density which assists in creating length and angle and is wrapped in the Turmoil Max Solid Reactive cover stock.
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
Great Ball! Its a venom shock with alittle more bite. Gets thru oil nicely and still gives that very nice finish thru the pins. Highly recommend as benchmark ball to start!
As we finally come back from the COVID break I have finally got a chance to throw some of my new rocks. Let's chat about the new ripcord flight. For me, I drilled mine 40x4x70. So for me its pin under the middle finger with no hole. I have a shock drilled the exact same layout. So to me, the flight feels cleaner upfront and more responsive downlane than the shock that people love to compare it to. Overall strength they are very similar just different shapes to me. Really great compliments to each other.
The venom shock has been my favorite ball from Motiv. It is very controllable with a smooth but continuous motion down lane. Sometimes on heavier oiled house shots or on certain patterns the venom shock is just a little too weak, the new ripcord flight fills that gap. The layout on my Ripcord Flight is 65x4 1/2x70 which is the same layout that is on my favorite shock. For me the ripcord flight is about 3-4 boards stronger than the shock, reads the lane a little sooner which allows it to handle more oil, but still has that smooth, continuous motion down lane. This new flight is the perfect benchmark ball to start with on any pattern. Motiv Staff, David Hooper Jr
I love this ball as a benchmark ball, at my house I'm able to throw it down 15 to 5 with a strong but predictable back end! I love how it reads really well in the mids, because it helps me decide if I need to switch or just move left. Take a look at my ball review on YouTube Motiv_Motion!
The layout I used on the Ripcord Flight was 60x5x30. This bowling ball defines what a benchmark ball is supposed to do. It reminds me of the Venom Shock; however, the new Ripcord Flight is stronger overall and a little more round on the backend for me. This is due to the higher diff core inside the Ripcord Flight. This ball makes the lanes easy to read and lets you know how to attack them. It takes really well to surface changes. I have thrown it at box(3k), 1k, and 2k. I prefer to use it at 2000 because it makes the ball motion a bit smoother. This ball will definitely make the pins take FLIGHT! Drew CrainMOTIV Staff
