The Forge™ Ember is the newest performance hybrid from Motiv Bowling. Built to generate more friction than previous hybrids, the Forge™ Ember combines technology from two very different coverstock systems to deliver a new brand of motion. Bowlers will find increased strength in the oil without sacrificing down lane motion. More down lane motion means that the Forge™ Ember will be useful for a longer window during competition.
Inside the Forge™ Ember is the Detonator™ core. The Detonator™ is a stable and strong combination of low RG with high differential. The fast spinning low RG provides control while the high differential gives traction and strength. The fast revving Detonator™ is a proven winner on higher volumes of oil.
Wrapped around the Detonator™ core is the Infusion™ MXC Hybrid Reactive cover. As already mentioned, this cover combines two very different shells to provide a unique shape. Traditionally, the most angular motions from MOTIV® were generated using the Infusion™ coverstock system. Conversely, the coverstocks with the MXC distinction were those with the most mid-lane traction and control. When combined, bowlers should see significant traction in the oil with more down lane motion than is normally expected from such a strong cover.
When to Use:
Speed dominant Bowlers: The Forge Ember will serve as an outstanding benchmark ball for bowlers who are speed dominant. Bowlers with higher speed and/or lower rev rates need more traction on the lane, but for a benchmark still need some down lane motion. The Forge Ember will provide the reliability and versatility needed from a benchmark or lane reader ball in the bag of a speed dominant player.
Balanced Bowlers: Balanced bowlers will use the Forge Ember on higher volume or longer oil patterns and lower friction surfaces when their go-to ball is just a bit too weak to make it back to the pocket. When the massive asymmetrical balls are too strong or too forward down lane, but the benchmark pieces just can not hook enough, the Forge Ember fits perfectly into the void.
Rev Dominant Bowlers: For many Rev Dominant bowlers the Forge Ember will be the strongest symmetrical ball they ever need. Many rev dominant players prefer symmetrical pieces, but there are few with covers strong enough to use on high volumes of oil and fresh patterns. The most rev dominant bowlers will use the Forge Ember as the first ball in their progression on high concentrations of oil.
