Thrash Frenzy
« on: January 16, 2013, 12:38:17 PM »
- COLOR: Blue/Aqua Pearl All colors do vary somewhat from the picture shown.
- INNER CORE: Quadfire
- COVERSTOCK: Whiplash Pearl Reactive
- FINISH: 2000 Grit / Polished
- RG: 15#-2.55
- RG DIFFERENTIAL: 15#- .043
- RECOMMENDED LANE CONDITION: Medium Oil
- A few tiny pit holes in the cover stock of the ball are normal
- BALL REACTION: The Thrash Frenzy bowling ball is long and clean down the lane with a violent backend reaction. Designed for medium oil patterns that are beginning to break down and build friction, this is the most angular ball MOTIV has ever released.

Description: Motiv has combined their proven Quadfire core with a new Whiplash Pearl Reactive coverstock to create a ball that will go long down the lane and have a strong backend reaction on medium oil lanes. This ball will move down the lane with ease while maintaining energy for the backend.

Inner Core - Quadfire
Cover - Whiplash Pearl Reactive
Finish - 2000 polish
15# RG rating 2.55 / RG Diff .043
Flare potential - 4”+


Bowler specs:
Right-handed
Speed: 18-20 mph
Rev: 450+

Dual angle layout on my Frenzy: 70 x 4.5 x 45



   For me, the Thrash Frenzy is very clean up front and with a serious change of direction motion when it reads friction.  When patterns start to breakdown, this ball will afford you the ability to store energy and not worry about carry down. Being that I am a higher rev rate player, this ball does not cause me problems by reading too early. The length this ball has before it reads is incredible. I love the fact that during league I can get in and create my own area and not worry about the ball not recovering. I can play the track and trust the ball to get through the heads with it’s clean front and still have the stored energy to go through the pins like it has a purpose.

Likes: Motion, aggressiveness off the spot, colors, price....
Dislikes: When I miss left, it doesn’t know....

Typical Conditions: House Shot
Type of Lane: All Synthetic
Weight of bowling ball: 15
Surface of bowling ball: Factory/Box

Ball stats: Core-Quadfire Coverstock-Whiplash Pearl Reactive
Surface-2000 sanded/MOTIV Power Gel Polish RG-2.55 15lbs. RG Diff-.043 15lbs.
Color-Dark Blue/Light Aqua Blue with Silver and Red logos.

My information
Ball speed: 18/19 mph
Rev rate- 430 average
Ball drilling on the ball reviewed-45 x 35@ 5” P2 X- hole

Overview:

The Thrash Frenzy is a perfect fit just below the Primal Scream for length. The delayed movement through the heads thanks to the Pearl Reactive cover, provides more skid flip than the Primal Scream.

Typical use:

42' fresh house pattern.

This has been the only ball out of my bag since i have received it other than my Sniper. With this ball I have been able to gain control of the lanes and make gradual movements with the transition.

The Quadfire core has always provided me with one of the best read reactions on a ball and now with the Whiplash Pearl cover, it now provides the best length and down lane reaction in the transition.

In the later games when I need to move deeper on the lane, the ball reaction never gives up. Being able to play the steeper angles, i saw a great increase in pin reaction.

As a high rev player I am finding this ball best on the medium oil patterns.

The Thrash Frenzy from Motiv utilizes the proven quadfire core from the Thrash and QZ2 Backdraft along with a new Whiplash Pearl Reactive coverstock to create the cleanest and most angular ball yet! The quadfire core has a high rg (2.55) and medium differential (.043) to create a strong continuous motion downlane once this core takes over. The new Whiplash Pearl Reactive coverstock is a new version of the Whiplash cover that was seen on the 2 cruel and is the cleanest cover that Motiv has produced yet. This new cover gets downlane with great ease and stores an incredible amount of energy to be unleashed at the end of the pattern on medium patterns or when the lanes begin to break down. This is an incredible new release that will be sure to turn heads with its strong angular motion downlane!

MOTIV Bowling Thrash Frenzy 
CONDITION: MEDIUM OIL
The Thrash Frenzy is long and clean with a violent backend reaction.  On medium oil patterns that are beginning to break down and build friction, this is the most angular ball MOTIV has ever released.  Bowlers with higher rev rates will really appreciate the easy length of the Thrash Frenzy.  When medium oil patterns begin to break down, rather than see a ball burn up in the friction and hit weak, the Thrash Frenzy will retain energy and produce a violent backend motion.

Grit and/or Polishes used
Ball comes at 2000 Sanded with Polish
I use this ball a lot on a THS league games 3 & 4… This ball has a pearl version of the shell that was on the 2 Cruel but it still holds the line very well AND still has stored energy in the ball when it comes off the pattern. I also see this as a great ball for a beginner that is looking for

Thrash Frenzy

Lane Condition:
   40ft THS on Brunswick ProLane
   Medium  Volume

Layout:
   4 1/2” x 4 1/8”
   70 x 4 ½ x 40

Following the success of the original Thrash, Motiv has given us a compliment worthy of its name: the Thrash Frenzy.  Using the proven Quadfire core (2.55 RG, .043 Diff) with the brand new Whiplash Pearl Reactive coverstock (finished at 2000 + Power Gel Polish) has produced a ball that attacks the lanes later in the day when you need something that can be projected right into the burn and will hook back with aggressive angularity.  The layout I placed on mine gives me a good mix of downlane projection and a strong revving motion at the spot.  I have had no issues with this ball getting through the heads and mids cleanly.  With the energy stored up from this clean projection, the backend has been nothing less than explosive once the ball finds the friction.   Just like my original Thrash, the Frenzy drives through the pins without reservation.  If you are wanting a ball that gives you that explosive backend reaction on fresh medium or broken down lane condition, let the Thrash Frenzy be your new benchmark.

Bowler Stats-Ball Speed 15.5 MPH Rev Rate-App 280 Axis of Rotation-30 to 60 degrees Axis Tilt 9 degrees Right Handed PAP-5 over, 1/4" up

The Motiv Thrash Frenzy is designed for medium patterns according to Motiv. It's description also includes the words violent back end.  The ball is as advertised. It pushes through the heads with ease on all but the driest of heads, revs up very late in the mid lanes and make a strong quick transition but continous move at the end of the pattern with plenty of energy saved.  The core/cover combo requires me to move deeper because of the angularity of the move on lower friction surfaces/conditions, and allows me to play the outsides on higher friction surfaces/conditions.  I am  someone who prefers keeping the ball in front of me so this took me out of my comfort zone.  But, it worked even better then I understood it would. It slides in oil and reads the friction quickly.  The Core of the Ball, the Quadfire, revs later in the lanes and has a lower flair potential then the Primal Scream. Compared to the last ball with the Quadfire core, the Thrash, the ball is longer and more angular. I have to have friction right, but those who are not as rev/speed challenged as this old man may be able to use in on heavier volumes and lengths.  If I tug the ball into the soup the ball skates but as long as the Frenzy finds a part of the lane to read it will still hit.   I think it will be a great match up for me later in long format tournaments after the Primal Scream becomes too much ball. 

This was my first attempt with 14 pound equipment and I averaged 245 with this ball for my first eight sets.  I have been able to find the pocket with this ball on my all conditions, and I have lost no hitting power. 

If you use this ball as designed, that is on medium oil patterns of volume or length as a skid/snap reaction, it will be a very effective ball. With the Thrash Frenzy Motiv that for me was not previously available with Motiv equipment, the go long and snap ball.  The pleasant surprise for me was that it carried well.  Previous to this ball I had trouble consistently carrying and controlling any skid/snap equipment.  This ball is very manageable.

I'm very colorblind but the Neomark Graphic makes the ball very pleasing to the eye and give it good shelf appeal.

COMMENTS

Likes:In one of my previous reviews, I raved about the Primal Scream and how it was the best ball I've had drilled in the last 15 years. That is still true, however, the Thrash Frenzy is quickly becoming my 2nd favorite. This pearl cover is extremely clean through the front and is very angular. As the pattern breaks down and I moved deeper, the ball continues to have a very nice angular motion on the back with fantastic hitting power! This is a great ball to go to once the pattern is too dry for the Scream. Motiv is continuing to step up it's game, and it's helping me do the same. I'm gaining more and more confidence with each new release.

I can't wait until the next release and test!

Along with the Scream, this is a must have! I'm getting ready to drill another layout in the next week...............

The Motiv Thrash Frenzy is an awesome ball to add to your arsenal. When the lanes start to break down this ball easily gets through the heads which is especially beneficial on wood lanes. The ball goes long with a great backend finish. This will give you an easy to read reaction and a higher percentage of strikes to continue bowling high scores throughout your games. The ball looks great also. My customer’s scores are also increasing with this ball as they are able to create area and carry more strikes. 

I have used this ball on a medium oil pattern at 41 feet on a wood surfaces.
I am right handed and throw the ball at 17mph. I use the Motiv Power Gel Clean to keep the ball clean and ready to react at all times.

If you want a ball that is very clean on the fronts with a strong back end reaction then this is a great choice. Thank you Motiv for another excellent ball.

Ball: Thrash Frenzy
Core: Quadfire
Coverstock: Whiplash Pearl Reactive
Finish:    2000 Grit Sand / Power Gel® Polish
Layout: 55° x 5”x 65°
Ball Speed: 18.5 mph
Rev Rate: 450+
This ball goes extremely long and makes a very readable back end movement. This ball is a great compliment to the Venom Toxin utilizing the same layout. This ball fits well into the game of a high rev rate player. It does not burn up down the lane when it transitions to the breakpoint maintaining plenty of energy.
Overall Rating: 5 out of 5

Review:
Its time to Get MOTIVated with the NEW Motiv Thrash Frenzy.  I drilled two Thrash Frenzys. Ball one is drilled 75X4.5X40 and ball two is drilled 60X4X75.  This is the most angular ball I have ever thrown by Motiv!  This ball gets down the lane with a sharp angular motion on the back end.  This ball allows me to play the deepest part of the lane on drier/brokendown conditions without sacrificing pin carry.  Comparing my two Frenzys, ball one gets much more length with more recovery in the back end.  Ball two picks up sooner in the midlane and a lil smoother but still angular in the backend. Another winner by Motiv, this is a must have in the bag!!!! Get MOTIVated!!!!
