Motiv Venom Shock Pearl video and written review

Hello guys! This time I had the chance to try the new Motiv Venom Shock Pearl.

The Venom Shock has been one of my favorite bowling balls. My 2 perfect games has been shot with the Venom Shock and my highest series has been also shot with the Venom Shock, so when I found out about the Venom Shock Pearl, I got really excited.

The Venom Shock Pearl is designed to be a cleaner and more angular version of the original Venom Shock and it does exactly as advertised.

I tried this ball on our fresh house shot pattern (Kegel Main Street, 41') and I was able to play straighter up the lane and the VSP found the pocket easily.

The Venom Shock Pearl has a smooth and predictable roll. It revs up quickly but it pushes farther down the lane to provide a strong, but controllable backend motion.

When I missed outside my target, the ball offered enough recovery to hit the pocket, leaving some corner pins when I missed too far out. Misses inside were not as forgiving as misses outside.

The ball doesn't have a skid-flip motion, but it offers enough length to feel comfortable knowing that the ball will never hook too early and that it will have enough energy to provide a strong shape down the lane.

I compared the Venom Shock Pearl with the Venom Shock and the Lethal Paranoia.

The Venom Shock is stronger overall. It has more hook potential, is earlier, smoother and it has a slower response to friction.

The Lethal Paranoia is a tad cleaner than the Venom Shock Pearl and it is more angular since it has a faster response to friction. Overall, the Lethal Paranoia is stronger than the Venom Shock Pearl.

The Venom Shock Pearl is a great complement to the Venom Shock and a great step down from the Lethal Paranoia.

When the Venom Shock gets lazy down the lane or is reading the lane too early, the Venom Shock Pearl will be a great option to go to.

When the Lethal Paranoia is too much ball or becomes too angular, the Venom Shock Pearl will provide a similar shape, with a smoother motion down the lane.

Overall, the Venom Shock Pearl is a great addition to the Motiv lineup.

The Venom Shock Pearl is a great option on broken down patterns. Once there is some friction and you need more length and more shape down the lane, the VSP will be a great ball to go to.

Bowlers who are currently using the Venom Shock will find in the Venom Shock Pearl a great complement and a versatile piece that will fit into a lot of bowling styles. Low rev, speed dominant bowlers will be able to use this ball playing straighter angles, while rev dominant bowlers will be able to move in and play steeper angles on most medium and light oil conditions.

Thank you for watching!
