Review:
The new Motiv Bowling Forge Flare hooks. A lot.  This ball has the Detonator core, found in the previous Forges, and the new Coercion MXC Solid cover, the strongest shell ever created by Motiv, at 2000 Laser Scan Sanded.

With this being my first Forge, I wasn’t quite sure what to expect. But this new coverstock LOVES oil. I was able to play inside, in all of the oil, and not have any deflection or rolling out.
The more you stay inside, the better this ball gets.

Getting the ball to the dry it picks up quick. This will be useful on longer, heavier patterns, where you can afford to miss right and still have some oil. For league, I would be able to start further left of everyone and stay there, all night.

Nice review Sean. When did you abandon Brunswick and come over to the dark side?   ;D
