Likes: The MOTIV Venom Shock is definitely something special! It is an extremely reliable, smooth rolling, beast of a light t-medium oil ball! The Shock looks great down the lane, has a price point that is affordable, it can out perform any ball in it's category on the market!

Dislikes: I can't think of any!

The SHOCK pairs well with the MOTIV Covert Revolt. Once the lanes begin to break down, the SHOCK is your go to ball with very little adjustment if any! Many medium to light oil balls have the tendency to skid threw the carry down or roll out and you are left buckets/washouts and/or corner pins, 8 pins or 9 pins. When you need something you can rely on when you begin to notice carry down that will push through the oil, you can pull the Shock out of your bag! You will be SHOCKED at the reaction and the connection this ball has to the lane! Your Arsenal isn't complete without the MOTIV Venom Shock in your bag!

I was looking for a new ball to purchase and my teammates recommended I get this ball. I watched one teammate roll his green Venom and I liked what it did. So, I took a chance and ordered it. I am very pleased with the reaction I get with it, and I feel it was a great selection for my equipment. A nice change!! :) Thank you..

Motiv Staffer, Right handed, higher speed, higher rev rate.

Layout: 70x4 1/2x 65 (pin below ring cg kicked roughly 35deg from centerline)

X-hole: 1\\\" down VAL

PAP: 5 over 1 up

The Venom Shock falls in place when the Tribal is too angular or too long and when the Revolt forces me to open the lane up too quickly. The Purple ball is still clean yet is a controlled hook down lane. I have found this ball most beneficial on patterns that are either lighter volume or less than 39ft. I prefer just a touch of 2000 for the surface to knock the shine off. I do it by hand not by ball spinner.

Hello everyone, I'm a new MOTIV Staff member and I couldn't be more happy with the variety of ball motions offered by MOTIV. Now for my first review.

The Venom Shock continues the Venom series of mid priced equipment offered by MOTIV. The Venom Strike has been a favorite ball of mine as it is very clean through the front part of the lane with a smooth continuous move of the back of the pattern to the pins. The Strike just need a little extra hook in the back to improve pin carry. The Venom Strike provides just that. The Shock is clean through the front part of the lane and make a stronger continuous move towards the pins. I have 2 Shocks, both at box finish, one is pin up with no hole and the other is pin down with a low hole. Both are very good on THS as I can use the pin down ball first to control the wet dry and then I can go to the pin up ball and open the lane up. Our league patterns are somewhat dry which doesn't allow to use my Revolts much.

This weekend I bowled in a PBA50 regional on Viper pattern and on wood lanes. I ended up polishing both Shocks with Power Gel Polish to control the dry heads from the wood lanes. Both balls carried me to an 8th place finish. The Shock is extremely versatile which makes for a great ball. Bowl MOTIVated and Shock the competition!!

If you are in need of a medium ball that gives you a smooth predictable motion I would recommend looking at this ball. My Venom Shock is drilled with the pin over the ring finger which places it about 4" from my PAP. I did not know what to expect when I threw the ball especially at box finish as I told my ball driller to drill it how he wanted too. I do not drill too many balls with a 4" pin to pap as I have a hard time figuring out the motion since the ball wants to use up energy fairly quickly. But with this ball I get a good amount of length and a very smooth motion at the end of the pattern. Even when i get the ball to the friction early it does not jump left like most bowling balls will do. So once again, if you are in the market for something that is in the medium price point and very smooth and predictable I would highly consider you look into getting a Venom Shock.

Description: The Venom Shock is the third installment of the Venom series and again placed in the lower mid-price range. The Venom Shock coverstock has the new Turmoil MFS, which is a modified version of the Turmoil HFS coverstock on the recently released Covert Revolt. For the core, MOTIV again used the Gear Core from the previous two Venom's and the much older GT-1.
Reaction: In a one liner the Venom Shock is very clean through the front part of the lane and provides a consistent controlled downlane motion. I have found myself throwing the Venom Shock when playing straighter angles, but when my more predictable pieces do not seem to respond fast enough downlane. The shape it provides is between a mild slower response piece and something mild that is longer and has a faster response. My style doesn't quite allow me to throw this ball on the fresh or heavier patterns at the box surface, but that is not exactly the intention of this piece, however altering the surface to 2000 allowed it match up very well. Believe it or not the Venom Shock is a benchmark ball for me, it allows me to get straighter and still maintain a great shape downlane.
