Versatile with Angular Strength
Enter the Rogue Blade, MOTIV latest entry to their Mid-range/Medium oil area of their bowling ball chart. As explained previously, MOTIV continues to keep the Sigma core alive and well but decided to go with a "old meets new' approach with this one. The Sigma core, known for its versatility and power, is now encased with the new Hexion SE cover stock. This new cover builds on the angularity of the original Hexion cover by beefing up its strength in oil and improving on its response down lane (faster and more angular). The beauty of this combination is that we now have a versatile core with a strong ball motion that will still allow you to maintain different angle down lane.
I don't know how else to say this, I am simply in love this piece. The Rogue Blade is truthfully as advertised. I have always been a fan of Sigma core. As many of you have noticed in my previous reviews, the versatility of a piece goes a long way for me and the Sigma core embodies versatility. Some of the issues I've experienced with this core unfortunately was not the core itself, but rather the cover stocks wrapped around it. In the past, such as the Forza SS, although a versatile ball in its own right, there were times I found it difficult to open my angles too much. I would lose carry potential because of the smoother ball reaction it gave me. The Rogue Blade provides me with the angularity I needed to snap that 7 pin out as provide a few weeks ago. I decided to sub in a league for a friend of mine the shift before my regular league later that evening. First game, with almost no effort, I start my evening off with a 300. My evening did not end there however, for my normal league, I move to the other side of the house and end up shooting 278-300-238 for 815. These games were thrown with my Rogue Blade. The ball was not cleaned or surfaced adjusted between shifts, I simply adjusted my positioning and angles and the rest was history.
