Motiv designed the Ripcord to offer as much angle and continuation through the pins as they possibly could. This ball is a great choice when you need something that will generate downlane motion when facing medium oil conditions. The Ripcord performs well when the oil in the front part of the lane has decreased forcing you to move in to generate angle. The Infusion Pearl Reactive converstock on this ball offers easy length with awesome down lane motion. The Oblivion core with a massive flip block found in the Ripcord was designed to generate downlane motion as well as angle and continuation through the pins.

The MOTIV Ripcord was created to produce angularity and continuation through the pins. Ever notice when the heads dry up and you need to move in to open up your angles? I really like this cover/ore combo because I can move in and do just that. The Ripcord is clean through the front part of the lane and rips off the friction on the back part of the lane. I struggle sometimes because my ball speed blows the ball past the break point and this core was created to create the down lane motion I need to help me overcome this struggle. Moving in and allowing the ball to see the front part of the lane and respond to friction gives me a shape I haven't seen before.
I highly recommend!!
most light to medium oil balls are rated mid performance .. why is this rated high performance ??8/6/2019 - By army dad
