The Gear core is in some of the best bowling balls that Motiv bowling has ever made! This begs the question if its the GOAT of cores?! I have put multiple layouts on these core and haven't found one that I didn't LOVE!

Has there ever been a gear core with a jackal coverstock? If not, would that be a good idea for a new ball in the motiv line?
The Gear core with the strongest cover has been the Shock. I def wouldn’t mind a stronger cover I’m just not sure how that would react on the lanes!
@MotivLou It wouldn’t work. Storm tried some strong monster covers on their !Q cores and they just were duds
@David Kirtley Idk I LOVED the !Q tour nano
@MotivLou that was a huge hit or miss ball though. Lot of burn out for people on that ball. DOA
10 the vsp also had the gear core
9 the VSP had the Top Gear core not the Gear Core. Top Gear is 2.47 .035 while the Gear is 2.48 .034
@MotivLou oh I thought it had the gear core
All good it’s an easy mistake
I agree. My first ball back after a 15 year break was a Venom Shock and it was amazing. Find a lane to match it up with and it hits like a battering ram. I have the tank blitz right now and it is the most forgiving ball and I believe it is because of the gear core.
Blitz and Shock both are very forgiving !
Great video. Loving motiv. Threw my flare last week and what a hook monster.
Yea it’s insane how much ball that is LOL
i am waiting for your Jackal Legacy Review.. In Theory that ball would be Crazy Strong..Forge Flare Cover with the Jackal Core.. Should be a monster.. 😀
In theory it should be insane ! Can’t wait to see how to actually rolls !
I have the Tank Blitz and the Venom Shock. I really like how they roll for me. I think I may need to get these re-drilled. If the ball doesn’t come off my thumb perfectly it tends to start rolling over the thumb hole. These are the only 2 balls I have ever had this much of a problem with. When I am throwing it correctly though these balls are without a doubt my favorite I have ever thrown.
Yea I would def have your pitches checked !! Good luck to you!
I loved the IQ Tour Solid out of box, that ball has very close numbers to the Venom Shock. One problem I found is the coverstock had died and had become lazy down lane even after taking it from its 4000 sanded box finish to 2000 sanded. If the Shock can hold up coverstock-wise like I’ve seen and heard. It’ll be the easiest ball for me to get into.
Throw nothing but Motiv these days but the IQ Tour is one of the best balls ever made… Better than the Shock in my opinion.
I LOVED LOVED LOVED the !Q tour solid. Was one of my favorite balls ever. Reason I like the Shock better is that it’s more cover than the !Q but no doubt both balls are all time
Love the videos… From an engineering standpoint whatever shape gives those low RG & Diff numbers is a winning combo for control.
I’m loving the low RG medium diff balls lately !
Putting a 3000 grit on Venom Shock will blend it out, and still work on med/dry conditions? I’m planning to get the Fatal for dryer conditions.
3000 is what I normally keep it at for league
That’s good to know. What about tournaments? I finished 6 in men’s in the tournament, yesterday. The 2 main balls were the Nemesis and Villain.
That all depends what the pattern is
I really appreciate the knowledge and videos. Keep up the good work. As of know, my team will be in the Nationals in June. I would like to try and meet you just to say thank you, if that is okay.
On my Venom shock, I put a 2000 grit on it. First game with it was 243 tonight at league
Great timing with this video! I’ve been wanting to see the difference between the Blitz and Shock. Of course, now I need to pick up a Blitz to complement my Shock!
Blitz is such a unique ball ! I hope you love it when you get it !
Lou be drunk with this title lol
Naw never that ! This is all my opinion! It’s okay if you agree or if you disagree!
I don’t really have motiv bowling ball but I had to choose on I would get the venom shock
If you ever decide to try Motiv I would highly recommend the venom Shock as the first Motiv ball.
I know you are a Motiv Staffer, but is there a Ball outside from Motiv that is there a Ball outside from Motiv that is stronger then the Forge Flare?
And is there a Chance outside from the USA To be a Motiv Staffer?
And i Like your Videos very Well because you throw not only Strikes and you show how To make Spears.
Can you say me what a flight cost from Michigan – Flynn To you.
In my option the Forge Flare is the strongest symmetrical ball on the market and prob top 2 or 3 strongest balls period!
With new annoucement of the Jackal Legacy, do you think you can have both balls, Flare an Legacy? Im a tweener with 16 mph and 350-375 rev.
I’m thinking yes. It’ll be a great compliment !
What do you mean is the best Benchmark Ball from Motiv, Roto grib and Storm?
Or from other Companys.
To me its the best one of all the brands
Can you make a comparsion where you Play all your Balls from the same line.
So i would say that we can see the most Differenz of the Balls.
I will start doing that going forward
Hey, I just subscribed today, because I truly like they way you do your videos.. I love the live practice sessions, as well as how many people’s questions you answer at the same time… Im currently bowling with Roto Grip, but now I wanna change to Motiv.. Im in love with that Forge Flare, but I saw a new Jackal coming out towards the end of this month.. In your opinion, was is the difference between the Forge Flare and the Jackal Legacy??
Thanks for the sub! I appreciate that ! So I haven’t drilled my legacy yet because I haven’t got it yet but I imagine it will be earlier and create more shape downlane! I will know more when I punch it up and try it out! =)
@MotivLou thanks for the response bro. Can’t wait to see it, and keep up the good work.. Because of your videos, I will transition to Motiv…
@The Simple Life that’s awesome to hear! I try to respond to all the comments on the channel ! If you ever need any help or questions with the Motiv equipment you can join the MotivLou Facebook group page. We have a GREAT community of bowlers who all help out on the page when people post videos or questions. Take care friend !
The gear core is definitely one of the best and one of my favorite cores out right now, my all time favorite core is the Cell core though
Cell core was a great core as well !!
I have all three plus the venom recoil and venom shock pearl. Love the venom series.
Me too!!! It’s soooooo good !
Every time he says versatile take a drink for now now
Yes!! Versatility is everything in bowling! 🤷♂️
