United Revolt video review

Hello guys, here we are with our latest review. This time we got the chance to try the new Motiv release, the United Revolt.

I was a fan of the original Covert Revolt and for me the Revolt Vengeance has been one of the best balls I've ever used, so when I found out about the new United Revolt I was really excited, and after using the ball for the last couple of weeks I can say that this ball will be in my bag from now on.

This ball reminds me of the Covert Revolt, but with more length and a stronger backend motion. Is not as clean and sharp as the Vengeance, but still pretty strong down the lane.

For me it has been the perfect ball when I want to keep the pocket in front of me but I need more shape down the lane. I can also open up the lane with this ball and I see a lot of recovery. Is not as angular as the Primal Fear, but on the other hand it offers me more control at the break point, being a bit smoother than the Primal Fear.

I've been using this ball for about two weeks now and it has been the perfect ball when my Jackal Ghost or my Chronic Paranoia start hooking too much or creating too much friction. The United Revolt gives me more length without being too long and it gives me that extra kick I need when I don't see enough motion down the lane.

I tried the ball with the out of the box surface (5000 LSP) and with this surface, the ball fits right in between the Trident and the Chronic Paranoia. Its also smoother than the Primal Fear at the break point, while still provides similar length.

When I changed the surface to this ball to 3000 Abralon, the ball is about 5-7 feet earlier, have a stronger midlane read but still offers me a strong backend motion. Also with this finish I was able to use this ball on fresh and use it all night by just making little adjustments.

I tried the ball on the Beaten Path oil pattern during practice and I was able to play around 10, keeping the pocket in front of me and the ball rolled great. Offered me a lot of recovery even on this pattern and had enough energy to make a strong move to the pocket.

This ball is a great option for bowlers who want length and control the breakpoint while still having a strong backend motion and for bowlers who need to ball down when your heavy oil ball begin to produce too much friction.

If you liked the Covert Revolt or the Revolt Vengeance, you are definitely gonna love this ball.

Thank you for watching!

Re: United Revolt video review

I don't have much to say about the review, but I will say that it's refreshing to see a video review where the bowler doesn't put 1000 RPM on the ball.

I guess today's "staff guys" are predominately young and are crankers. It is so hard to find a decent ball review using a stroker. Maybe more senior staffers (if there are any) need to be doing some reviews, so us older gents can get an idea how the ball reacts on a down & in shot.
