CLOSEOUT ITEM INFO
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.
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
Good ball after lane breaks down
500-1500 Abralon dulled/sanded - I stand all the way left and swing it out to the 5 board and she comes roaring back!2000-4000 Abralon followed by ball spinned polish - She looks like a shiny gem and she's perfect for a relaxed straight down and in shot standing around 10-dot or center, and throwing her anywhere from the 4-12 board, and crushes the pocket!
this is my new benchmark ball great on all 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.

what ball is this most compared to in the motiv line up
The Motiv Venom Shock will be almost the same as the Motiv Venom Recoil.
is the core in the 13 lb ball the same as 15 lb ball
The 13 pound ball will have a generic core.
I contacted Motiv and they said all their weight balls have the same core. You can check this out on the internet.
13lb will have the same weight block as 15lbs.
I'm a stroker style with 15-16 MPH speed .. In league I bowl on 41 ft fresh oil house shot.. I usually start with my ghost or rising then game two I go to my golden jackal ... game three I'm tossing the venom cobra.. would that venom recoil be another weapon for game three based on this info ??
Yes, that is correct!

Need a ball with power and aggresive in 14 lbs
The Venom Recoil will be a strong hooking ball if you are bowling in medium to lighter oil conditions. The reaction is a smoother hook reaction because it can start reading some in the midlane and then good continuation on the backend.
I HAVE A VENOM COBRA, HOW WILL THE RECOIL COMPARE (14lb)
The Venom Recoil will read a little earlier and a little smoother than the Venom Cobra which had a little more length.
HOW WILL THIS BALL (VENOM RECOIL) COMPARE TO THE DESERT TANK?
This ball will have a little more length than the Desert Tank and it will have a stronger hook potential. The reactive coverstock is going to help this have a stronger hook potential and also be able to handle a little more oil so it is good for medium to lighter oil while the Desert Tank is more suited just for lighter oil.
I think the Hammer raw is comparable to the Columbia 300 Beast. Is it or is the Raw a stronger ball. My house never puts out much oil so I’m looking for a ball that won’t over hook on dry so much.
I think all three options are going to be pretty close. The Motiv Venom Recoil, Hammer Raw series and Columbia Beast series are all mid performance balls designed for medium to light oil. There are different versions of the Raw and Beast so depending on which coverstock you get on those you may get slightly different reactions and lengths.
How will the Motiv Fatal Venom compare to the Recoil on a typical house shot? The lanes tend to transition quickly with 8 bowlers on a pair.
On Motivs website they give 3 ratings to give you a good idea of the comparison. The Fatal Venom is Length:17 , Backend: 18, Hook: 52. The Venom Recoil is Length: 14, Backend: 17, Hook: 53.
Due to the time it takes to produce the Motiv Venom Recoil ball it will ship in immediately. We cannot ship this ball outside the United States.
