Length:41 Feet


Type (THS, Sport Pattern etc):THS


Likes: Fresh Oil and Volume

Dislikes:Lots of Friction


This ball is really strong. I have only drilled one so far, but have to drill another. This ball is scary good on the fresh.

Despite the aggressive nature, it still gets through the front cleanly and there's no holding it back. I drilled the first one pin down and it gets into a roll and keeps on going.

Can't wait to drill at least one more layout.

This is a perfect ball to start with on fresh, once they begin to break down the pattern a bit, then comes the Rage.

Motiv is continuing to truck right along, in more ways than one!

The Cruel Intent™ is a dominating power pearl for heavy oil.  It is the cleanest and most angular asymmetric ball MOTIV™ has ever produced.
At the heart of the Cruel Intent™ is the huge Sinister™ core.  It harnesses asymmetry to boost track flare and promote proper transition in very low friction environments.

Proven to be a very angular and continuous cover, Fusion™ Pearl Reactive technology is used on the Cruel Intent™.  This shell is special because it is produces both incredible angle and devastating continuation.
The Motiv Cruel Intent gives me a different look than any other ball in the Motiv line. I drilled my Cruel Intent with the pin in my middle finger which is a more controlled layout for me.  This ball works great for me on breakdown of longer, higher volume oil conditions that start to burn up in the heads.  Even though I do enjoy moving left and creating more angle, sometimes that does not work.  When I start with my Raptor Talon or my 2 Cruel and the heads get torched because of everyone using surface because of the higher volume and length.  The pearl cover allows me to stay on top of the same line I have already created, rather than having to move left.  This helps me keep my carry percentage a little higher because I can play a little straighter, longer.  But, do NOT let the pearl cover fool you, this ball HOOKS. Hints the #HOOKTHEWORLD.  It still has the Sinister core used in our 2 Cruel, which allows for greater hook potential.  This ball gives me the little bit of extra length I need without sacrificing any midlane control.  This ball is also very continuous and rolls very forward through the pins.  I, also, enjoy this ball on a several different lane conditions when I am trying to cut down on over/under without having to change to a completely different type of ball such as a solid.  Yes, there have been league nights when I have hooked the entire lane with the Cruel Intent on typical house conditions! HAHA.  What are you waiting for? Order yours today and Get MOTIVated!!!! #HOOKTHEWORLD
