Additional product information:

Versatility. Continuation. With a brand-new core and cover stock, the Pride™ from MOTIV® is the designed to be the perfect benchmark piece.  Unique from anything currently available from MOTIV®, the Pride™ fits perfectly into the medium oil position of the ball guide.

The new technology at the heart of the Pride™ is the Dominion™ core.  It has specifications that place it between the Gear™ APG and the asymmetrical cores seen in the Trident™ and Jackal™ series.  These unique asymmetric specifications leverage the physics of the Dominion™ core so the Pride™ can be used on moderate volumes of oil and higher friction than the typical asymmetric bowling ball. 

Additionally, now that weight holes are illegal in competition, the asymmetric Dominion™ core will enable players to control ball motion more than most symmetric cores.  MOTIV® Tour Rep, Brett Spangler, said, “What’s so cool about this core to me is that I never felt like I was throwing an asym.  I get the versatility of the asymmetrical core, but the Pride™ never wanted to go too forward down lane or glue up too much in the front.  To have the versatility of an asym without some of the traditional drawbacks is incredible.”

The Dominion™ core is encased with the latest reactive Coercion™ cover stock from MOTIV® called UCS – Ultimate Continuation Solid.   It was created by providing more length and more angle to the existing Coercion™ MXC cover technology.  This new UCS Reactive cover stock is the most versatile Coercion™ shell to date and complements the unique specifications of the Dominion™ core perfectly.   

Speed Dominant Bowlers

Bowlers with higher speed or lower rev rates benefit greatly from asymmetrical cores.  Providing versatility in drilling and the ability to limit the skid phase for bowlers who struggle to get the ball to slow down is a massive plus. 

Balanced Bowlers

For balanced bowlers this is the centerpiece to their arsenal.  The Pride is the first ball out of the bag and the one used most often.  The controllable core and cover combination allows balanced bowlers to use the Pride on a variety of surfaces and concentrations of oil.  The easily tuned Coercion UCS Cover can also be shined or scuffed to allow an even broader window for balanced bowlers to use the Pride.

Rev Dominant Bowlers

For many rev dominant bowlers, asymmetrical balls are too strong to use on house shots and moderate oil patterns.  A lower differential and cleaner cover than most asymmetrical solids allows rev dominant bowlers to have an asym in their bag that they can use on many more patterns and higher friction surfaces.

    Stronger than expected on the backend. Working on the cover to get it to read right, for my speed 13-14 mph . Good ball.

    Motiv Pride Review

    The new Motiv Pride does everything you’d want with a benchmark ball. It’s very versatile and has amazing continuation. The Pride has brand new core(Dominion core) and cover stock. This Pride was designed to be the perfect benchmark piece and it’s exactly that!  Unique from anything currently in the Motiv line. The Pride fits right into the medium oil/smooth position of the ball guide. I can see this ball being used on a lot of various oil patterns.

    Best Benchmark Ball on the Market

    Hand: Right-Handed Ball Weight: 15 lbs. Rev Rate: 500 RPM Ball Speed: 18 Mph Tilt: 10 Rotation: 45 PAP: 5.125” over and .125” up Layout: 40 x 5 3/8 x 20 (Dual Angle) This ball with this layout for me gets down lane while reading the mids and still giving me a ton of energy while entering the pin deck. I typically have issues with Asyms reading the lanes to early and not having any energy down the lane. That is not the case with this ball. The Pride is very smooth and very predictable. The Pride is a stronger benchmark piece that allows you to play all parts of the lane.

    Motiv Pride

    This ball is can be played on any type of lane conditions, but it's too strong to use during open bowling. I purchased 2.. I get my balls drilled and the drilling service is the best. How can you beat this...Purchased .. drilled and received within 7 days.. Drilling is perfect... the best.. no refitting.. put in the thumb insert.. and it feels the same as all my balls. PERFECTION!!!! GREAT DRILLING SERVICE

    Insane new Benchmark

    I drilled up my PRIDE with a slightly stronger layout than normal (60x5x30) and pretty much instantly fell in love. The roll this ball has is extremely predictable! Not only does it look extremely good rolling down the lane, the motion it has is super good. It lane shined pretty quick on me and became a little too much off the spot causing 4 and 9 pins, so I took it down to 2000 grit to smooth it out. Ever since I dulled it ever so slightly, it has become a monster on the THS I bowl on. This piece is definitely a gap that we needed to fill for a long time. Go out there and get you one!

    Ball is SPECIAL

    The new Pride from Motiv deserves its name. Motiv should be PROUD of what they came up with on this one. It is the most versatile asymmetric ball I have ever thrown. As the lanes start to hook more and earlier, chasing the pattern in, this ball just doesn’t quit. It doesn’t give up, and it continues through the pins remarkably well, especially for the price point. This is a ball that everyone is going to want in their bags as soon as it’s available. If you don’t have one, you’re at a disadvantage.

    It doesn’t Stop!

    Just like the title says, this ball doesn’t stop. The new combination of the Dominion core mixed with the Coercion UCS Solid Reactive cover stock creates a very predictable, strong motion that truly shows by the continuation this ball provides. As someone who has a lower rev rate, the extra strength this ball provides as a benchmark piece, is exactly what I love to see. I have full confidence that on fresh medium patterns and league patterns, the Pride will give me the predictability/Benchmark reaction and the absolute strength going through this pins that make it a necessity for everyone to have in their bag. Get yours today.
