What's going on my YouTube fam?!? Today I have an in depth comparison between an absolute legend in the Venom Shock and its "big" brother the Venom Recoil !! Both of these balls are special in their own way but does the Recoil have what it takes to have the Venom name attached to it?!? @bowlmotiv is hitting absolute homeruns with the releases and look out for the Fatal Venom and Forge Flare coming soon!!

Great stuff, Lou. Appreciate your videos. 👍
THANK YOU !! I supper appreciate that !!
AJ Johnson has been making the Recoil look Damn Good since he joined Motiv
You’re not wrong about that !! It’s so good when it’s the right ball !
Jared Drake / yea I think he can make anything look real good, lol better than us. lol. I like AJ is is a great bowler
I just got the forge fire and the tank blitz and I’m excited to try them out
Hopefully you’re gonna love them !!!
Loving my recoil, my pso already ordered me a fatal as well 😂
I can’t wait for the Fatal !! The infusion cover is so dam good ! WITH A GEAR CORE ?!?
Yes Yes Yes, this is what I need to see, Lou it is the best ball WE’VE EVER SAW.(lol) Shock
Shock is AMAZING !!!
I love my Venom Recoil, I’m a 160 average left handed bowler. I thew a 206 and a 210 with it tonight.
NICE bowling!!! Keep it up!! You’ll be 200+ average in no time!!!
Thank you for revisiting the Recoil. One thing I didn’t have in my bag was an asym. Once the Recoil came out, I had to have it.
Yea it DEF DEF needed some revisiting lol ball is really underrated IMO
Recoil was my first Motiv ball and why I fell in love with the brand. I still haven’t own the Shock. This review makes me reconsider getting a shock
The Shock is seriously one of the best balls ever! You should at least consider it !
The Recoil is a bomb 💣. I love, what I like to call, the “forward rolling continuation”. I have high axis rotation and this ball helps me control the pocket on the wet dry.
Oh nice !!! Yea I’m loving this recoil
I love the venom series very under rated ball I remember when I had the toxin and panic almost shot 300 with both of them I bought the shock two weeks ago love the ball very readable I basically call this ball motiv hyroad like storm venom ball should stay in every one bag very dependable ball.
Shock I hope stays in the line for A LONG time !! It’ll be a sad sad day when it gets discontinued
What’s up Luis,
That’s exactly what I needed to know about the “Venom Shock”.
The bowling Center in my area (Ca.) just got the ok to open up the bowling businesses again on Nov 1, 2020 – so now I will get the chance to roll the 3 balls that I couldn’t before, because of Covid19 😒 – “The Jackal Alpha”, The Forge Fire” & “The Venom Shock”.
So happy the centers can open back up !!! I hope you love the new balls ! 🙂
hi luis i saw you make a video with the venom cobra
I’ve only had one Venom Cobra before and didn’t love it
Recoil is a beast never matched up with Shock well. I’m looking forward to forge flare
I can’t wait for the Flare !!
My brother has the vsp
VSP was an okay ball lol
I had a recoil I thought it was the most inconsistent ball I have ever thrown. I’m a high rev bowler and still looking for a ball for me.
What kind of ball are you looking for?
I have both, I really enjoy going from the shock on fresh down to the recoil for game 3 and lets me throw the same line and not worry about changing too much on my throw.
That’s always a great feeling to have!!
I would be interested in seeing a 7th Shock drilled with a short pin to see how that compares
I actually just drilled a new Shock a few days ago. I went 4.5×20. I’m not a huge fan of short pin layouts. They haven’t matched my game very well.
@MotivLou how come, I was interested to hear if a short pin shock would be less responsive off the dry so more like the poison
Can you compare de recoil to the fatal venom?
That might be something I can do !
There are balls that do many things great, and there are balls that are the best at 1 thing. This ball is one of the later. Every motiv staffer is throwing it on the short animal patterns and is just a necessary ball if one doesn’t want to or cannot throw urethane on short. Truly an underrated ball.
Agreed 100% with that !
I just picked up the venom shock as was curious to see what ball best compliments the shock the best like kind of a secondary ball
If you’re looking for a “go to” ball after the Shock I would look into the Fatal Venom! It has the same core but a Pearl cover so it’ll have a similar motion as the Shock just a little longer and a little more angular!
Thank you very much for the reply I will give it a try!!!
@Chaise Harvey yea no problem anytime!! Take care!
