Rogue Blade
« on: August 14, 2018, 11:12:14 AM »
Motiv created the Rogue Blade bowling ball by combining the proven and trusted Sigma core with their Hexion SE coverstock. This ball introduces the Hexion Strength Enhanced coverstock to the world. This core and cover combination creates a strong and angular ball that generates easy revs and outstanding control in the mid-lane for medium oil conditions.

Color: Red/Black
Core: Sigma
Coverstock: Hexion SE
Finish: 4000 Grit LSS
RG: 2.47**
Differential: 0.047**
** RG and Diff are based off of 15 lb. balls
Recommended Lane Condition: Medium Oil

 Rouge Blade !!!!
Drilled my Rouge Blade 35 x 3 ½  x 45 and watch the Blade react like true blade on knife really cut throw pins wants it touch friction on back in. This ball is great on medium to light oil conditions. I also notice when rolling the Rouge Blade it was very clean down lane which gave me opportunity to adjust to carry down during competition. This ball would be great fit between the Force SS and Venom Solid. Please Visit your local Pro Shop and purchase Rouge Blade you will not be disappointed.

Rogue Blade Review

Overview: Rogue Blade features the low RG/medium differential (2.47, 0.047 @ 15lbs) Sigma core covered in the Hexion SE coverstock finished at 4000 LSS

Bowler Info: 14.5-15 mph, 300-330 rpm; Axis Tilt: ~22; Axis Rotation: ~55; PAP: 3-7/8” x 3/4” up

Review: Rogue Blade has been a versatile piece for me. With its fast response to friction, I’ll be able to use it on medium lane conditions. It will also come into play for me during transition. It fits between the Forza SS and the Paranoia’s.

Layout 1: 70 x 4-1/2” x 75  pin down, no extra hole. The pin down one, which I have finished at 2000, gives me a smoother, rounder shape down lane. It’s great for when I want to control the backend.

Layout 2: 45 x 4-3/4” x 35  pin up, no extra hole, box finish
With the shinier pin up one, it gives me easy length and a quicker, sharper move down lane (as compared to the pin down one). This one will come into play for me when I have to open my angles, but still need something to rev up earlier.

Comparison: Rogue Blade vs. Forza SS (both at box finish)
Rogue Blade is easily 3-5 ft cleaner and has a sharper backend motion with 2-3 boards less hook overall.

Final Thoughts: The Rogue Blade is special, with its clean cover and strong core combination, it will provide a benchmark piece for those tweeners on medium lane conditions. Also, this ball takes surface adjustments well, so don’t be afraid to change it to fit into your arsenal.
