What kind of shape would you like to see out of this middle ball? Early and smooth(Jackal Ghost) or more of a skid/flip(Octane Burn)?

IMO Venom Shock or Forza SS if you want the more smooth look. Primal Fear if you're looking for length and movement.

If going to be a Motiv guy definitely need a venom shock in the bag.  That ball even interests me and I have never owned a Motiv piece.  Pretty much the ultimate benchmark ball.

The Forza SS would be a good fit, but it depends on your style and the shape you want.

Nope. Never wanted and don't need a Venom Shock. I really get tired of people who know nothing about your game saying you must have a Venom Shock.

I'm not saying it's not a good ball, but let's be real. It does not fit everyone.
Balls: Motiv Jackal Ghost (scuffed), Motiv Jackal LE (polished), Motiv Forza GT, Motiv Primal Fear, Motiv Ascent Pearl and Motiv Hyper Sniper. All made in the USA.

That's a big gap to fill with a lot of options to fill it. Even just sticking to Motiv. Depends on your desired shape/reaction between those two.

True it just matches up with more people than virtually any other ball but not everyone.

Fine won't ever mention again.  Not a Motiv guy anyway so I have no skin in the game.  Buy whatever the hell you want man.  Teach me to suggest anything to randos on here.

I'm confused.  :-[ So sorry you took it as an insult or whatever. It was meant as a compliment and nothing more. l do and have respect for your bowling knowledge. I'm now @ a loss.  :(  I do apologize if I upset you in any way, shape of form. It wasn't my intention @ all.

I am thinking for now that I'm not going to put a ball between them, but put the octane in the middle and use my artic sniper as my last ball out of the bag.

Sorry.  Totally took it the wrong way.  Guess having a teen in the house too easy to assume sarcasm.  Honestly like I say not a Motiv guy and so everything I am saying is second hand but know Motiv guys speak about the Venom Shock in the same way Storm guys speak about the Hy-Road and have that one and the pearl and understand why they speak the way they do.  Venom Shock is basically a better IQ Tour (regret selecting the latter since I bowl mostly THS but oh well).  Didn't mean to have thin skin there.  Still plenty of people don't match up with the Hy-Road either so that is why we have choices.

All well & good I figure. Thanks for the reply. Never tried the HyRoad Pearl, but knew a fellow who had one and it was way to strong for him, he said. I do like my HyRoad though and it works quite well for me. My Carbon usually is 2nd out of the bag and has staying power into the late games of league. Ahh, a teenager in the house.  :-\ Mine are all grown up and on their own.  :) Best to you, HackJandy. Jim  8)
