Additional product information:

The new solid purple Venom Shock produces a violent reaction on light to medium oil conditions.  It attacks the lane with the proven Gear™ weight block and new cover technology – Turmoil™ MFS (Medium Friction Solid) Reactive, which is a modified version of the more aggressive shell featured on the Covert Revolt.  This core and cover combination provides a smooth yet angular backend motion that strikes with devastating continuation.   

As far as shelf appeal, the Venom Shock does not disappoint.  The vibrant orange logo really pops off the purple shell.  And, for those that are into glow-in-the-dark bowling, the logos on the ball glow orange and green. 

The Venom Shock really does have it all – performance, looks, and a great price point.  The most shocking thing about this ball may be that you get such outstanding performance at such an affordable price!

    This ball is very strong for light to medium oil. It handles some medium heavy oil very well. Hooks great with box surface. Been able to use it for three complete games by just moving a little

    Motiv Venom Shock

    This is a easy ball review since I have had other Venom Shocks. This is drilled 60 X 4 5/8 X 25 pin up . What the Venom series of balls supply is easy through the front part of the lane very clean and gives me an easy read of whether this is the right ball for the pattern. I believe that this series of balls gives you an excellent read of the mid lane which is key to scoring. These really store energy for the back end and can be used on light to medium patterns or when the pattern is starting to transition.

    Venom Shock solid

    Wow. What a performer this ball is. It’s my first Motiv ball, and to say I’m happy with the purchase would be an understatement! This thing is an absolute beast of a ball. It hits hard. Real hard. And creates pin action for days. It’s a smoother ball, and a easier ball to throw too, which is awesome for me. It is firmly in the bag. I drilled it 40x3.5”x20, which for me puts the pin at about 2:00 and about 3” from my ring finger, and let me tell you, this thing performs better than I expected it to. I though the low RG would prevent hook, and it absolutely doesn’t. This ball performs stronger than that, for sure. Yet, again, it’s a smooth as anything I’ve thrown, frankly. I’m a 450rpm, 18.5-ish strike ball, with a PAP 4-15/16” over and 13/16” up. And, this layout is just beautiful. This could quickly become my new favorite/bench mark ball. Well done Motiv. I’ll be adding the pearl to compliment this in short order.

    Motiv Shock

    Posted by Tony Cifaldi on May 21st 2019

    I've used the Shock twice now, so i feel I can give a better review. The first time was on a slightly used house shot, the second was on a plastic house ball destroyed house shot. The Shock was solid on the first shot getting through the heads without a problem, then finding the dry, absolutely turning over hard on the back end and then drilling the pocket. I played a few different angles and the Shock responded from everywhere. There were times I swung the ball a little too far outside and thought it had no chance to get back to the pocket, but back it came. On the second shot I started with my Ebonite Vital Sign which was polished. It would not turn over with all the carrydown. I then pulled out the Shock which I had slightly touched with a used 4000 grit abrolan pad. The Shock went through the heads with ease and then rolled through the carrydown like it wasn't there. I have owned a ton of balls during my time bowling, but never had one like this and at this price point. I now know why Motiv has been making this ball for so long. I just wonder what took me so long to buy one.
