Motiv is releasing its first entry-level price point equipment with the Ascent line, but there is nothing entry level about the Ascent Pearl. The combination of the high RG/low Diff Recon core (2.59 RG, .025 Diff) with the MOTIVator Z pearl coverstock (used in the QZ line) allows the ball to easily push down the lane and make a strong backend motion, one not normally seen in an entry-level ball reaction. I laid my Pearl out with the idea of using this ball to its strengths and it has not disappointed. With this core and coverstock working together I have no problems getting the ball to glide through the heads and the midlane. Once the ball gets down to the break point it reads the spot aggressively and makes a very pronounced move towards the pocket. Once going into the pocket the Pearl has no issue getting through the pins, driving through them with incredible energy (thanks in part to the Recon storing energy for such a late move). Once the lanes begin to break down I can start getting left and use this ball to bounce off of the dry and keep a strong, angular motion through the pins even with larger launch angles. Entry level pricing with an advanced reaction, this perfectly describes the Motiv Ascent Pearl.
