I’d like to see you revisit the trident nemesis in your current video format.
I’ve heard that from A LOT of people! However with bowling balls only being “popular” when they first come out I can’t imagine making those videos and getting a decent about of views. But don’t worry all the next releases will be in this format or better ‘
drilled up a desert tank for my teammate, he is killing it with this ball!
I LOVE the desert tank !!
I LOVE my VIP. It’s not on the list 😉
VIP is a great ball no doubt!! That’s how good the releases have been this year! 🙂
That Tank is one of my favorite balls every, it is truly something different from what any other ball offers. I and shocked you didn’t make the Forge Flare #1 in you videos it is clear how much you love that ball.
Yea number 1-2 on this list were definitely not easy but ultimately I went with the desert because I match up better with it !
How does the tank blitz compare to the desert tank? The big difference is the gear core which is one of your favorites right?
The covers on the balls are also incredibly different. I like the desert more because I can play way straighter with it
Trident Nemesis didnt make it, wow… ever since i bought that ball, it’s literally been a blessing, that’s a real shocker to not see it and i almost have a similar throw as you
The Nemesis was a GREAT ball but not as great as the ones on the list. Any other year it would have made the list !
I thought you loved the VIP. Is it an honorable mention
VIP prob would have been number 6 or even 7
I like those picks, I have 2 balls from 2020 ( Trident Nemesis and Forge Flare). How would you pick your top 5 since your started throwing Motiv?
Oof thats a tough one lol I would say
5. Forza SS
4. Jackal Ghost
3. Forge Flare
2. Desert Tank/Venom Shock
1. Venom Shock/Desert Tank
My are the Golden Jackal, Villain, Forge Flare, Blitz, and Venom Shock. I can see myself use the Flare, Villain, Blitz more than others.
Those are all great balls for sure!! This list was only the balls that came out in 2020 🙂
The Desert Tank will be my next purchase; keep up the great content!!
You’re gonna love it 🙂 I’m definitely trying !
Is the desert Tank a Ball for drier Lanes?
It’s definitely better suited for the shorter oil patterns and lower volumes
What changes with including all the Motiv? I know that venom shock has to be in there
For me right now all time would be
5. Forza SS/Covert Revolt/Jackal Ghost
4. Octane Carbon
1. Desert Tank
@MotivLou thanks surprising but awesome. Any idea what higher rev guys lists look like?
Will the tank be good for a low speed bowler? I am 71years old and throw the ball 12 to 13 miles and hour?
That would all depend on your revolutions. If your revolutions are also low to go along with your ball speed then yes absolutely it’ll be a great idea
Great list. I would have gone 5. Fatal Venom 4. Right Cord Flight 3. Jackal Flash 2. Alpha Jackal 1. Forge Flare! The Flare may end up like the Venom Shock and never get retired! LOL
That’s a GREAT list!! That’s the beauty of bowling that we can all have completely different lists
I know it’s an older ball and almost unrelated to this video but is the ghost a good ball to start with on the fresh or more of a ball for late play?
The Ghost is one of my all time favorites!! Ball is best suited for the fresh but can absolutely be used late to curve the lanes
I still throw my Motiv Cruel C51 and I’ve loved it every day. But on house patterns it’s just too aggressive for my taste. What’s your favorite house lane ball of all time?
Venom Shock 100%
Really nice video. I’ve had an interest in Motiv for a while. I’ve been throwing Radical for several years. I could definitely make a good choice on a purchase, after watching and listening to your experiences. I subscribed, and look forward to seeing more. Thanks again.
Thats awesome to hear!! Join the motivlou facebook page if you ever need any help with Motiv equipment!!
i just bought a forge flare and im in love. its like nothing else with the angles you are able to play and never sacrifice any bit of carry. even with the huge core and having so much surface. its amazing
Yes!!! This ball is special ! Been saying it since day one!
