Motiv VIP
« on: September 01, 2020, 02:13:23 PM »
Found some information out there on a supplier website, bringing back the Quad fire core which was last used with the Octane series I believe

"To develop the debut pearl edition, we have been working
closely with EJ Tackett to create a special bowling ball that stands apart in
our product line.  For the VIP™ we are bringing back with one of EJ’s
favorite MOTIV® cores to create angle down lane – the Quadfire™.  It is
merged with our latest cover technology to create a medium oil pearl that
delivers outstanding length and a very angular backend motion.  Because
this pearl VIP™ is being developed alongside EJ Tackett it will also bear his
ExJ brand logo."

Is this the same core from the QZ1?

Sure is!

Only 500 made. I don't even see it on Motiv's ball guide.

Mine is on the way. Probably won't drill it for a while though

MJS - that’s incorrect. 3500 were made and 1000 went overseas alone. So 2500 stateside. Bowlerx.com had 360+ pre orders alone.

I suspected BowlersMart was fibbing when they claimed "Only 500 will be made".

It didn't stop me from buying one though.

Yeah Bowlersmart's website initailly said "500 or so" and that has now been changed to say "limited release".  Got mine and the swag from bowlerx but I don't think I'm going to drill it.
