Motiv Top Thrill Purple/Red Pearl

Motiv has taken the original Thrill up a notch and created the Top Thrill. This bowling ball was designed to offer length as well as control when the lane oil is light and there is a lot of friction. These balls feature the Halogen V2 weight block with a higher RG to delay the balls' reaction on the lane and generate the length required on lighter oil. The very low differential found in this ball helps minimize track flare and assists in ball motion control at the lane's backend. The coverstock used for the Motiv Thrill Pearl is the Turmoil XP Pearl Reactive and is finished with a 5500 Grit LSP. This ball is great for beginner bowlers as well as seasoned high rev bowlers looking for a good dry lane ball.

Top Thrill Review

The new MOTIV Top Thrill is our newest dry lane/ high friction ball. This ball for dry lanes offers a bigger core and new cover, a step up from the original Thrill in both core and coverstock technology.  
Developed as a dry lane complement to the Infusion cover, the Turmoil cover provides as much down lane shape with less traction in the oil to allow for use on dry lanes.  When the Infusion balls are too much, the Top Thrill will be a better option.
The Top Thrill has the Halogen V2 which is best for dry lanes, but with a strong enough core to allow for more angles of play and have more versatility.

Top thril!

Ball layout: 40x3x15
Ball Speed: 17.5
Hand: Left
Pap: 3 7/8 7/8 up
With Motivs all new Top Thrill this ball sure does pack a punch for a low end ball! The idea behind this layout with myself being a speed dominant bowler was to have a layout and a ball that really allows myself to stay dead on top of the friction without having to open up my angles. That’s exactly what this ball allows me to do! With that sometimes our carry might go down as we go to a weaker ball, which is the opposite with the Top Thrill. I was extremely impressed with how well this ball continues through the pins, making this ball a must have in my arsenal whenever I go to bowling centers that are higher friction centers. I would highly recommend this ball to any bowler, whether you’re an entry level our tournament bowler. For myself I found this ball to be a great go to under my Ripcord Velocity when I would have to ball down from the lanes hooking too much and allowing me to play parts of the lane I’m more comfortable in. Again whether you’re an entry level or tournament bowler you can’t go wrong with the all new Top Thrill

Is it good on the house ?? shot

Have an answer to this question?


This ball is rated for lighter oil conditions. This would work well on open bowling nights or on some of the later games during leagues but it would not work well if there was a fresh house shot put down.
