Motiv is upgrading the Venom line of bowling balls with the powerful Venom Recoil. This ball introduces an asymmetric core to the Venom line called the Gear APG (Asymmetric Performance Gain). This core was designed to give ball drillers more drilling options. Motiv combines this core with the Coercion MFS Reactive coverstock and finishes it with a 4000 grit LSS. This ball offers a powerful yet smooth motion on light to medium oil conditions.
The first word that comes to mind after my personal use of the Recoil would be 'Unique'. I have always been a fan of the Venom line, specifically MOTIV's legendary Venom Shock. The Shock always had a spot reserved in my tournament bag because of its adaptability to almost any pattern I was bowling on. The only issue I saw with the Shock would come when the ball would become a bit too angular down lane and difficult to control without sacrificing pin carry in the process. I see similarities between the Shock and the Recoil in their adaptability. What sets the Recoil apart is the smoother ball motion and ability to blend out patterns with ease. The second thing that sets this one apart comes from the asymmetrical Gear APG core. The asymmetrical core gives the Recoil more power behind it, which provides a stronger continuation through the pins that tend to be lost with benchmark pieces as your angles change. I would highly recommend a Recoil and Shock pairing in any MOTIV fan's bag as they are perfect complements of one another.
