CLOSEOUT ITEM INFO
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.
Great first ball for sport shots, Hooks, Doesnt leave 9 pins, gets length,
Its Very Fast off the spot, For high rev 400rpm
Med light to dry, Not Super dry
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
I thought this ball would leave 9 pins but it doesnt grip that much. Probably the first ball out tha bag on sport Shots.
Speed: 19.5Rev Rate: 398PAP: 5 1/2 over 7/8 upTilt: 4.3Weight Block: OblivionCover Stock: Infusion ReactiveOOB Finish: 5000 LSPThe 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!!James TurnerMOTIV Staff
Control and continuation!
Shorter on length than expected.
Ball breaks well but smoothly on the back end. Not quite as much length as I hoped but more controllable than any other ball I've thrown.

most light to medium oil balls are rated mid performance .. why is this rated high performance ??
Motiv will sometimes produce a ball with light-medium oil high performance balls.
asymetrical or symetrical ?
This ball will be symmetrical.
How does this ball compare to the Motiv Primal Rage Anniversary

Would this ball be good for a 2 finger baller? If not what bowling balls would you recommend?
Most bowlers that only use 2 fingers usually get a pretty high rev rate. If you have a high rev rate you want to make sure the ball goes down the lane a good ways before it takes off so you do not have the ball hooking in front of the head pin. This ball is designed for good length and strong backend hook so it should work well for you. If you have a slow ball speed and high revs, this would do better in medium to heavy oil but if you have normal ball speed or high speed to match your high revs then it works in medium oil.
is the same core in the 12 pound?
Yes, Motiv has the same weight block through all weights.
I use a motiv t10and like it alot but a little too much toward the end of night. Would the ripcord or venom shock be better
The Ripcord is a slight step down so it may not be a big enough drop to switch to but the Venom Shock could be a noticeable drop down for when the lanes get more medium to lighter oil at the end of the night.
Is this a ball for older bowlers with slower ball speed
The pearl coverstock and polished finish should give you good length which is good for someone with a slower ball speed.
What’s the difference between the rip cord and the flight, please! Someone told me the flight has more drag or slow when rolling’ was wondering if you knew what that meant or would both of them have a slow motion down lane. A guy from bowler x said this as he was demonstrated the flight, as he was bowling with it he said Man this ball rolls slow?
The Ripcord has a polished finish on a pearl coverstock to give it excellent length and and an angular backend hook while the Ripcord Flight has a solid coverstock with a duller finish to read more in the midlane for a strong arcing hook. I am not sure exactly what the person meant by slow rolling but the Flight starts hooking earlier on the lane and the Ripcord hooks later on the lanes. If you have a slow ball speed you may prefer the Ripcord to help the ball get down the lane better before it starts hooking so it does not roll out too early. If you have a high ball speed you may prefer the Flight so it has time to grip and react on the lanes to match your faster ball speed.
Would this ball work for some one slow speed?
Yes, this ball has very good length which is what you would need if you have a slower ball speed. If you have higher revs then this ball would be good for you in medium to heavy oil but if you have average to lower revs then this would work well in medium oil.

eighty year old with short fingers and small wrist ball speed 8 1/2 to 9 1/2 mph low revs what do you recomment to to get ball through headpin urethane,reactive,hybird
It may depend on the lane conditions that you bowl in. You may need to also adjust some for the lane conditions a little bit. So if a ball was rated for medium to light oil, you may need to just use the ball in medium conditions so that the ball does not react too early with your ball speed.
Due to the time it takes to produce the Motiv Ripcord ball it will ship in immediately. We cannot ship this ball outside the United States.
