The Motiv Cruel LE is a very adjustable, controlable piece of equipment.
Layout: 55 x 25 x 3.5 w/ P2 hole
Surface: adjusted to 1000
Where everyone on my pair of lanes had to adjust all night, I was able to stay in my grove. The cover of the ball provided the extra length through the breakdown on the lanes and the strong asymetrical core of the ball was able to recover on errand shots.
If you can get your hands on one of these gems before they are gone, I strongly suggest you should.
High rev / Hi speed bowlers should expect a smoother reaction from the ball
Low rev / Low speed bowlers should expect a stronger reaction from the ball by design.
The cover of the ball adjusts very well to surface changes. The 2000 out of box finish was too lengthy for me and i had to bring it down to 1000 to get the shape and reaction I expected from the lay out. Don't be afraid to adjust the surface of the ball, your local pro shop can always take it back to factory if you don't have your own ball spinner.
Type (THS, Sport Pattern etc): Fresh THS
Likes: Length the cover provides, predictable reaction, recovery, color
