If you are in the market for a strong skid flip bowling ball I would recommend you consider the Sigma Sting. I have my Sting drilled with the pin over my middle finger as I wanted something strong that would allow me to open up the lanes. It is exactly what I wanted, I am able to use this ball as far left as I need to and it still has enough energy to make the corner and get to the pocket. I would not recommend using this layout on a fresh pattern, but I would recommend using a Covert Revolt first. When you have to move deeper and the Revolt isn't making the corner enough I would switch to the sting staying in the same general area.

So the question that must be plaguing all you MOTIV faithfuls or those looking to break into the brand but are not quite sure where to start, what does MOTIV have in store for you? Well that is a very simple and exciting answer. I have two words for you, the Sigma Sting! This ball has no limits to how it can be used on the lanes. The Sigma Sting has re-defined the word versatility for MOTIV. Once again, championing the cover stock that made their presence known within the bowling Industry, the Fusion Pearl Reactive has finally been wrapped around the Sigma Core. This brings a new aspect to the Sigma line with a pearl but yet powerful cover stock that provides great length but still manages to provide both smooth but yet snappy back-ends.
There is no denying that this ball will surprise both the individual who picks up this piece and begin rolling it down the lane as well as those watching. The Sigma Sting has become by far the best ball in my bag and it is rare that the Sting isn’t one of the first balls out of my bag. I bowl in both first and second shift leagues and if this ball was the only ball I remembered for either league, I would be set. With the amount of energy that is retained for backend motion, I easily open up the lane as I move in as the 2nd shift shot continually breaks down more and more. Turning to the other side of the coin, I can just as easily tighten up and go more down and in on a fresh shot. When anyone claims versatility, its hitting power comes into question as the angles change with any ball, the Sting must have missed that memo. The first game out of the box, playing 2 different angles, left lane was very snappy, any shot left of the 12 board on the left side of the lane by mid-lane was going to make a nose dive for the head pin. The right lane was almost a polar opposite as I needed to play more up and in. This ball, out-of-the box, I threw a 279, only leave being a swooshing 10 with pins flying left and right but no such luck to take the pin out. Following that opener, within a month, I had thrown a 279, 290, 300, and a 280 (not all in one set of course). If you’re looking to fill your bag with that essential go-to ball, especially for a tournament bag, the Sigma Sting will create some envy among the rest of your equipment as you may not want to pick up another ball from the bag again. Go out there and strike up a buzz!

The Sigma Sting uses the Fusion Pearl Cover although I wouldn't characterize the ball as having an angular motion, just very continuous. Even with the low RG core, it still gets plenty of length with the out of box surface. I currently have two Sigma Stings, one pin up and another pin down. The pin down Sigma Sting is noticeably earlier and stronger overall as it should be. The pin up is obviously cleaner and stronger downlane, but the similarity between the two is that they both see the same continuation throughout the roll phase. Both are my benchmark balls even with the different layouts. The Sigma Sting it is plenty of ball to throw on the fresh, but is clean enough and can corner with deep angles on a lighter or broken down conditions without over reacting.

It's too bad you can't give this ball a 10. I have always liked the Sigma Core, I still have my original SR2, that's loyalty. I have had this ball 4 weeks, and it never ceases to amaze me. This ball reads the lanes so well, it is actually fun to watch. I recently bowled in a PBA event on the 35 foot Cheetah pattern and used this ball most of the 12 game qualifying block. This is not a short oil ball, however it is sooo good you can throw it on anything. The combination of the Sigma Core wrapped around the Fusion Cover has produced my new benchmark ball. Use your favorite "go to" layout and let it rip, this ball hits pins like they are mortal enemies. If this is not part of YOUR arsenal, your giving up pins and honor scores.
