Motiv Forge
Motiv boasts that the Forge is their strongest symmetrical bowling ball to date. This ball introduces the Detonator weight block and combines it with the Coercion HFS coverstock to offer control with huge hook potential. This ball is ideal for medium-heavy oil conditions where it displays a smooth motion as well as outstanding power and continuation. The Detonator core has a low RG and a high differential that help generate revs easily along with a lot of flare. This ball uses Motiv's outer core material called Reverb helps with massive pin hitting power. Motiv's Coercion HFS coverstock creates traction even when facing heavy oil conditions, as well as a smooth reaction to friction, and superb continuation. The coverstock is finished with a 3000 Grit LSS pad to assist in this motion.

So I recently received my Motiv forge a week ago and let me tell you it's exactly as its described in the videos and literature. It's very strong Maybe a board or 2 weaker than my jackal gold. But its much early and often. Meaning it reads the earlier part of the pattern and blends the pattern down lane. So if you are bowling on something where you need some control from a big hooking ball or bowling on a cliffed house shot this ball is exactly what you are looking for!

Hello MOTIVnation.

Let's talk about the Motiv Forge.
This ball uses the Coercion HFS coverstock and the Detonator core.
It is manufactured at 3,000 LSS with a RG of 2.47 and a DIFF of .055.

This ball is very smooth through the moddle part of the lane hits with a ton power. This ball was designed to be the ball down from the Trident Abyss. I have really enjoyed throwing this ball and is usually my go to ball once the lanes start to show transition or carry down.
This ball  along with the all new Motiv Golden Jackal will keep you in the pocket all day or night long.
 I have witnessed first hand that this ball is made for all styles and all rev rates. I bowled in a local tournament 2 weeks ago and there were 4 of us throwing this ball, all different styles and all different lines. Order yours before time runs out. Highly recommend this ball

Description: The Forge brings a brand-new core to MOTIV’s arsenal, the Detonator Core (2.47 RG/.055 DIFF). The Forge has a modified version of the Coercion Coverstock that is used in the Jackal series, called Coercion HFS. The all NEW logo brings some nice shelf appeal to the ball as well!

Reaction: There is no doubt that the Revolt series was very popular, but the Forge will be taking its place in the Medium-Heavy oil row on MOTIV’s Ball Guide
( I am surprised, but so far, I have been able to successfully use this on fresh house patterns. It has allowed me to move into the thickest part of the lane without being in an asymmetrical core and really blend out the very wet/dry house patterns, which has really opened the lane up because it never loses continuation. Once the Forge lost a little bit of it’s box cover and had some lane shine it started to look even better on league conditions. I felt like when I got into a Revolt Havoc it was too early and too slow for house patterns and I felt the same about the Forza SS and original Forza, the Forge just continues so much better than those pieces.

Comparisons: I compared the Forge to the Villain and the Rogue Blade, comparing to older balls as described above just doesn’t make any sense when it’s a significantly better piece designed for modern conditions. The Villain forced me deeper on the fresh house pattern and I feel has more shape down lane than the Forge, those that want to use more friction on the house pattern will veer towards the Villain, while those who wanted to use that unlimited hold on
the house pattern will want to use the Forge. The Rogue Blade is significantly cleaner and has more shape down lane than the Forge. The Rogue Blade would be a good compliment to the Forge when it’s too soon or too smooth.

Summary: Well, there are no tricks to this ball, you know exactly what you’re getting. An earlier rolling ball with amazing continuation. It is designed for when you want the ball to start sooner and maintain control and a lot of continuation. The is MOTIV’s strongest symmetrical release to date!

Introducing the all new Motiv Forge, featuring the the never before seen Detonator Core and wrapped in the Coercion HFS cover. This is the strongest symmetrical ball I've ever thrown. It reminds me of a much stronger Venom Shock or Revolt Havoc.

I find this ball to be great on a variety of patterns, and itís become a sort of benchmark ball for me. I drilled mine 45x5.25x40, which is one of the weaker layouts Iíve ever used for something symmetrical.

This ball excels anytime thereís free hook to the outside and a puddle in the middle, and with surface can be used to tame flatter shots with ease.
