The Motiv Villain Scorn is an asymmetric ball with a pearl coverstock that was designed for medium to heavy oil. This ball uses the Sinister weight block which has a higher RG to move the ball down the lane while storing energy. This core also has a higher differential that produces big track flare which creates greater ball motion. The Hexion Strength Enhanced (SE) Reactive Pearl coverstock is finished with a 5000 grit LSP. This coverstock offers superb length with a quick and intentional reaction to friction at the backend.
The ball is a great for finishing the back half of a block if you are bowling on heavier oil conditions. With less oil, you will need to keep the speed up. I have a 300 with this ball.
I just bought this ball and my 1st night of bowling 751 series with 3 clean games. Ball hits very hard and carries most corner pins. Need to keep the speed around 15 mph or it takes off on you. This is the best ball i have purchased in the last 2 years. I switched from Storm to Motive this season. My average on THS was 215, now i am averaging 225 in two leagues with Motive Trident as my other ball.
What an addition to the Villain product line. If the OG villain wasn't enough along comes his brother - LONG AND STRONG and of so angular.. Quite a compliment to the OG - and great for transition later in the block.. This piece is pretty incredible..
Had the Venom great ball, got the Forza GT- didn't like the ball at all. Went back to DV8 then got the Villian Scorn but find it too tame against the DV8. Gone back to DV8 and got rid of the Villian
would this be similar to the primal rage le11/23/2018 - By army dad
How does this ball compare to the Storm Hy Road? Will this ball be more aggressive on the backend than the Storm Hy Road?11/28/2018 - By JR

Motiv has their own system on their website to better break down the comparison. The Motiv Villain Scorn has Length: 17, Backend: 18.5, Hook: 56 and the Motiv Trident Abyss has a Length: 11, Backend: 17, Hook: 62 . I hope this helps to describe the difference a little clearer.9/24/2019 - By Bowling.Com Staff
