Punched up my red QZ1 with a 5 5/8 pin to pap located 1 1/2 in above my middle finger. This ball clears the front better than any of the other balls in the Motiv line. This ball also turns the corner hard! This is the most skid snap ball in the line. When you're other Motiv stuff is reading the lane too early, this is the ball for you. I was able to edge left and increase the hand without worry of it checking up too soon.

Ball Speed-15-16 mph,Rev Rate-250-265rpms,
Axis Rotation-45 Degrees, Axis Tilt-15 Degrees,
Specs on ball tested:
90/45/@3 3/8,X-Hole on PAP,7/8"bit,2 1/4" deep,
Sanded 2000 with Power Gel Polish
The all new MOTIVator-Z pearl cover and the all new Quadfire core
creates a ball motion yet unseen from MOTIV. The core and cover
combo gets the QZ1 down the lane without any trouble and
when it encounters the dry at the spot it turns left without
any hint of jump.What you get is a controlled smooth arc.
The medium RG and the medium Diff. helps this look.
The QZ1 on a fresh house shot let me move just right of the oil
line and ,play the house pattern with ease. Standing right and playing
this angle allowed me to stay with the QZ1 longer before moving
deeper and changing balls.
On the 2nd shift house or the broken down tournament shot the QZ1
was the ball I have been looking for from MOTIV. The QZ1's smooth
arcing roll allows you to send it wide and have it corner without
fearing that it was going to jump through the nose.The pin carry
was great on this type of shot.
This is the money ball that MOTIV has needed.Anyone looking
for control in a mid-price ball needs to think about the QZ1
as their next purchase.

16 mph @ pin deck
325 Rev rate
Purchased the QZ1 Red as soon as it was available Dec 4th. Feel I have enough games on it now to do a review. Drilled it 65x4x35 to be an option for later in tournaments. With this drilling it has a fairly quick response to friction. I can play pretty deep inside and still get this ball to recover and carry the 10 pin out. It gets down the lane easily and makes a pretty aggressive move off the dry but not jumpy. It gets down the lane a few feet longer than the Purple. This balls works best on med to lighter oil patterns with the box finish. This is a great 1-2 combo with the Purple QZ.
