Motiv Venom Recoil
« on: April 19, 2019, 02:17:54 PM »
The Venom Recoil features the all new Gear APG core and is the first asymmetric ball in the Venom line! It comes wrapped in the Coercion MFS Reactive coverstock that is also found on the Villain and T10, two balls that are a must in my bag. I drilled the Recoil with the same layout as my OG Shock, pin under ring. I was looking for the Recoil to read the lanes and give me a smoother reaction off the spot.

My first practice session with this ball went very well. I threw the first 7 out the gate before leaving an 8 pin. The ball definitely reminds me of my T10, but allows me to get a little deeper. I compared it with my pin up T10 and I was about 4 & 2 left off my T10 line. The second session with the Recoil was during my film session where I compared it with the OG Shock and VSP. The lanes had a left over house shot from open play. Compared to the Recoil, I was about 2 & 2 right with my OG Shock, and about 4 & 2 right with my VSP. I definitely felt comfortable moving more left with the Recoil as it read the lanes well and was able to come back stronger on shots that went too far out.

As with most of the Venom line, the Recoil will make an excellent benchmark ball that will help tell you what the lanes are giving you. Once it starts to lose energy, you can easily switch to a VSP and stay in the same general area.
