Motiv ball simular to hammer scorpion
« on: December 05, 2022, 09:12:46 AM »
I really like motiv bowling balls but bought a hammer scorpion and it matches up well for me with my style and house shot.
I was wondering what motiv ball would be simular?
Any suggestions would be appreciated Thanks.

Looking at their ball chart, they really dont have one.  Closest thing you could do is take the Ripcord Launch and take it down to 2000.  It is the only ball in their line that is a symmetrical with a medium RG and medium diff and in that medium performance catagory.  Issue is that you are comparing a hybrid to a pearl.  The only hybrid is the Forge Ember but the core is quite a bit stronger than the Scorpion which would likely make that ball a step up from the Scorpion.  So options are very limited since they really do not have a direct comparison.

Are you being limited to Motiv?

If not, why try to replace something that is working well for you?

I also agree with the above, that they don't really have anything super similar. The closest in my mind would be the Blue Coral Venom with a little bit of surface

Thank you for replying. I guess I'll just buy another scorpion and drill it when this one wears out.

I keep telling people that the Scorpion might be the most underrated ball out there.  I have probably 125 games on mine and still works very well on house shots.
