The much anticipated Motiv Venom Shock Pearl (VSP) is here! This ball is the perfect compliment to the original, ever popular solid Venom Shock bowling ball. The VSP uses the Hexion cover and a dual density weight block called Top Gear. The Top Gear core gives this bowling ball a low RG and low differential comparable to the original version of the ball, but the dual density core produces a more angular backend reaction. The Hexion MFP (Medium Friction Pearl) Reactive cover offers good length and a quick response to friction and is finished with a 5500 grit LSP finish. This ball is great for rev dominant bowlers or just anyone looking for a compliment to their original Venom Shock bowling ball for when the lanes break down.
Got the ball because it was very similar to the Cobra and I love the Pearl great compliment to the original shock
Picked mine up Sunday. This ball is awesome. The ball didn't go as long as I expected, but has great continuation. First set out of the box, 279 266 259 for an 804 set.
The new Venom Shock Pearl compliments that Original Venom Shock perfectly! The proven Hexion cover was put on this ball while staying with the original gear core. This combination is awesome! I drilled mine 60 x 4.5 x 70 with a light 1000 abralon grit on the surface. Even with the 1000 surface, this ball is still very clean through the front part of the lane and I never had to deal with the ball grabbing too early as the lanes transitioned. Compared to the original venom shock, the pearl is much cleaner through the front part of the lane but still has that great continuation the Original Shock is known for. The best part of this ball is how low the pins stay when the ball enters the pocket. This feature maximizes carry and this ball certainly doesn't disappoint!
I like the versatility of this ball. I changed cover stock a couple different times. First was 1500 with a little polish. (Not bad) Next was straight up 2000, no polish and it has worked well also. May try 3000 and move a little right to play down the boards, with plenty of backend. Still a very nice addition to an arsenal. To start with this ball on fresh oil it is not bad. But as lanes break down it is awesome , clean through beat up heads and plenty of break on backend.
As a bowler who is rev dominate and prefers pearls the OOB finish has very little boards of hook needed to hit that sucker with some grit and it performed like a champ.
