Motiv has made some great solid reactive bowling balls and the Ripcord Flight is no different. This ball was designed to produce powerful traction in oil while reserving energy for impressive continuation down lane on medium oil. The Oblivion core is dual-density which assists in creating length and angle and is wrapped in the Turmoil Max Solid Reactive cover stock.

The venom shock has been my favorite ball from Motiv. It is very controllable with a smooth but continuous motion down lane. Sometimes on heavier oiled house shots or on certain patterns the venom shock is just a little too weak, the new ripcord flight fills that gap. The layout on my Ripcord Flight is 65x4 1/2x70 which is the same layout that is on my favorite shock. For me the ripcord flight is about 3-4 boards stronger than the shock, reads the lane a little sooner which allows it to handle more oil, but still has that smooth, continuous motion down lane. This new flight is the perfect benchmark ball to start with on any pattern.

go. The layout I put on it is 55x5x30. This ball is hands down already one of the best benchmarks iíve ever thrown. It is extremely smooth and has insane continuation. I think a decent comparison to it is the Venom Shock, where as the Venom is cleaner with a faster response, the Ripcord flight is a little earlier with a slower response off the spot, which is why I feel it is an even better benchmark than the Venom Shock. This ball is also extremely coverstock versatile, Iíve scuffed it with a 1000 pad and Iíve also shined it up, and both ways this ball rolled great regardless. I canít wait to drill a couple more of these, I would recommend this ball to any style of bowler!
