Additional product information:
The new Villain™ Scorn is just plain vicious. This asymmetric pearl turns heads and turns sideways on the back of the lane! Engineered for medium-heavy oil, it offers powerful core dynamics and the latest innovation in angular cover technology from MOTIV®.
The Sinister™ weight block at the core provides the Villain™ Scorn with a higher RG to propel the angular cover down the lane and retain energy. It also features a higher differential to yield massive track flare for enhanced ball motion. And, as many have experienced with the original Villain, the asymmetric Sinister design offers great drilling versatility.
Tuned with a 5000 Grit LSP finish, the pearl Villain™ Scorn features the latest Hexion™ SE Reactive cover technology. This Strength Enhanced (SE) Hexion™ shell provides great length with a fast and deliberate response to friction at the backend of the lane.

The Villain Scorn is the newest upper mid performance ball from Motiv in the Villain line. It brings back the proven Sinister core, but this time its wrapped in the newest Hexion Pearl Reactive cover technology. If you're looking for a cleaner and stronger down lane version of the original Villain, that will allow you to play a little deeper on the lane when the fronts go away, this is your ball.
The Villain Scorn comes as the perfect complement to the original Villain and a perfect fit in any bowlers arsenal. The Scorn takes the amazing Sinister Core and applies a form of the Hexion Pearl coverstock to give you an asymmetrical ball that combines length with a strong downlane angular motion.
This ball fits in to the current Motiv line by falling as a ball down to your Jackal Rising and Trident Abyss for when the lanes start to transition and want to see the ball get through the middle part of the lane better.
The Scorn offers more angle down lane than I have been able to see out of anything that I have thrown recently and allows me to really step left and never worry about this ball bouncing off of the dry.
I would recommend this ball for any house pattern that is out there and for any of the medium length and long sport patterns that you would run in to.
Pick this one up and you're sure to become the new Villain at the bracket table!

The new Villain Scorn is a great addition to the original Villain. What I immediately saw with its reaction is the amount of recovery it has compared to the original. Not only can I open up my angles with it, the motion downlane is unlike any others in the current line. By far the Villain Scorn, is the most angular Assymetric ball I have had my hands on. When comparing to the other symmetric pearls, i.e. Primal Rage LE or the Lethal Paranoia, I am able to jump further left and project it further into the dry to create an angular shape that the others were not able to.
After adding a touch of surface, the amount of area it can create improves drastically. Although it slows the response just a little, the carry percentage does not decrease with a possibility of getting even better. What I love about the Villain Scorn is that you do not have to backdown at all with it. For me, the more aggressive I attack the lanes with it, the better results will show itself.
Pros - Versatile Cover, Great Dull or Shiny, Aggressive Reading Lanes front to back
Cons - None

Description: The Villain Scorn is the second Villain produced, but the first to have a pearl cover stock (Hexion SE Reactive) which is the same cover stock used on the Rogue Blade. The box finish is 5000 Grit LSP (Laser Scan Polished). It uses the same Sinister Core as the original, with an RG of 2.54 and a .051 differential.
Reaction: The Villain Scorn fits in the performance level just below a high-level asymmetrical ball. With the lower differential for an asymmetrical ball combined with a stronger pearl cover stock this ball has just become about as angular as I have ever seen for an asymmetrical piece. I think it will also be very versatile because the ball seems to be a one you can throw start to finish, not a lot of balls fit into that category.
Comparisons: The original Villain is much rounder than the Villain Scorn. I don’t see them as balls that will really play off each other but rather an either-or type of situation. For instance, I have been recently throwing the original Villain a lot lately, but there are instances where I want to stay in the same zone but could use something faster down lane, this is where I would instead throw a Villain Scorn. I don’t see me throwing a Villain Scorn once the Villain starts to hook too soon or too much, if I do it will require me to get a little deeper on the pattern because of how strong the Villain Scorn is down lane. Compared to the Rogue Blade the Villain Scorn pushed me deeper on the pattern as it’s a good 3+ boards stronger and is noticeably quicker down lane.
Summary: I think the Villain Scorn is an important piece for a lot of bowlers. Everyone has their hook monsters for heavy oil and their benchmark balls, but I really feel this ball will bridge the gap between those two types of balls!

Like many dull balls, the ball reaction can get very lazy down lane and leave a lot of corner pins or even splits. The villain scorn has a great pearl and fast reacting coverstock that compliments the original villain perfectly. What I love about the scorn is how straight I can play with it on a fresh house or sport pattern along with how far left I can move my feet with it so I can keep striking for a long time. The scorn covers reads the drier backends so well for such a clean cover. Anyone who bowls on medium dry lanes or bowls on a older lane surface will love this ball hands down.
