Motiv Ripcord Flight Bowling Ball Features:

The Ripcord Flight uses the symmetrical Oblivion core shape that was used previously in the Paranoia series and the original Ripcord. Its Turmoil Max Solid Reactive cover is a new formulation, providing much more traction than earlier Turmoil versions, such as the one used on the Venom Shock, and comes out of the box at a 3000 grit sanded finish. The higher RG core design helps conserve energy as the aggressive cover and rough box finish provide traction in the oil.


MOTIV has produced some of the greatest solid reactive bowling balls in the world. They create aggressive traction in oil yet retain energy for explosive continuation down lane, and that’s not easy to do. Those impressive characteristics have been refined and tuned for medium oil to deliver the solid Ripcord Flight.


Continuing with the dual-density Oblivion core to provide length and create angle, the Sky Blue Ripcord Flight features Turmoil Max Solid Reactive cover stock. This modified version of the cover used on the Venom Shock handles slightly more oil volume and is tuned with a 3000 Grit LSS factory finish.


“For years, our pro tour staff has asked for a ball to compliment the Venom Shock when it can’t create enough angle or combat the volume on the lane. The Ripcord Flight is exactly that ball. I can’t wait to get this in the hands of competitive and casual bowlers,” said MOTIV PBA Tour rep Brett Spangler.


For many bowlers, the Sky Blue Ripcord Flight will be an outstanding benchmark ball.  It perfectly balances the characteristics of a solid cover while also providing more shape down lane.  This piece is a must.
