This ones a winner!
OOOOOOO man! Motiv has outdone themselves with this one! The new Villain has me beyond excited! This is without a doubt the most versatile ball in my arsenal, but also provides a really nice go to ball after my Jackal Rising. When the front of the lane starts to go away and my Jackal Rising becomes a little bit too much ball, I am able to ball down to my Villain while staying in the same part of the lane.
The really nice thing about the Villain is it's versatility. The Coercion coverstock is really one of the most versatile coverstocks I have seen in quite sometime. Out of box this ball is very clean and loves to hook when it sees the friction, or if I need to I can sand it down to 1000 and allow it to blend out the pattern while still exploding through the pins! I must say it is quite nice to roll an asymmetrical ball and not have to worry about if it stores energy or not when I need to make the move inside.
It doesn't matter if you're a low rev-high speed player, high rev- low speed, or a tweener like myself this Villain is the ball for you!
To say I'm excited would be an understatement!

Sick Ball Motion
The new Motiv Villain is a new shape that motivated fans have been waiting for. Traditional Asymmetrical, high performance cores are all Low RG and High Differential that they don't last as long on the lanes as you would want it to. The VIllain does just that. For those bowlers that need a strong core but just don't want a ball that lasts 1 game, this is your ball. It is really clean through the front like a lower end ball but is strong and continuous like that high performance ball you love. Compared to the Jackal Rising, the Villain easily goes about 2-3 feet longer down the lane while still giving you that great shape that the Rising has. This ball is great in that transition game of league or great on the fresh if you are just on those lanes that just tend to hook more. This ball is not only predictable, but goes through the pins great and hits like a truck!
