Motiv Top Thrill Solid Purple Orange Bowling Ball

(2 reviews) Write a Review

The Top Thrill line is developed for premium performance on dry lanes.  The latest additions to the MOTIV product line are the Top Thrill Solid and the Top Thrill Hybrid.  These two balls were developed for world class performance on dry lanes.  While others develop “entry level” bowling balls, we at MOTIV focus on premium performance for the varied environments a competitive bowler is likely to encounter.  With peak performance in mind, the new Top Thrill Solid and Top Thrill Hybrid are designed for specific needs expressed by bowlers.

The Halogen V2 core returns for these two Top Thrills as it is perfect for performance in light oil.  It combines a slow-spinning high RG core for easy length and a lower differential to provide 2-3 inches of track flare potential.  The moderately low differential allows for a clear progression within the MOTIV product line, stepping down from balls intended for medium-dry lanes. 

The Top Thrill Solid uses Turmoil XP2 Solid coverstock to provide easy length, yet also a smooth and continuous motion. Additionally, the finish of the Top Thrill Solid is set with performance in mind.  The 4000 Grit LSS finish allows for easy length, but without a violent down lane motion.  Control with resin on dry lanes is the purpose of the Top Thrill Solid.

When to use

Speed Dominant Bowlers - Speed dominant players will likely use the Top Thrill line when the lanes are very dry or on shorter oil patterns when urethane balls are not an option.  The Top Thrill Hybrid will be most useful when more down lane motion is needed, while the Top Thrill Solid is ideal on shorter patterns.

Balanced Bowlers - For balanced bowlers, dry lanes and at the end of long blocks of competition are ideal for the Top Thrill line.  Balanced bowlers competing on a second shift or in tournaments with longer formats will find great use for the Top Thrills.  Often, balanced bowlers find themselves lost after urethane has transitioned lanes.  In those cases, the Top Thrill Solid allows for straighter angles is a great solution.  When the patterns are longer and bowlers want to create more angle, the Top Thrill Hybrid should be used.

Rev Dominant Bowlers - For rev dominant bowlers, the Top Thrills are a must in the bag.  The Top Thrill solid is a great option for lower volume fresh patterns where straighter angles are in play and other balls are just too strong for the angles in play.  The Top Thrill Hybrid is an outstanding burn ball for rev dominant bowlers.  While the solid is better on light oil from shallow angles, at the end of the block, the Top Thrill Hybrid will be useful from steep angles.

    THRILL SOLIDRICHARD VERRY WEIGHT: 15 REV RATE: 435 BALL SPEED: 16 TILT: 9 ROTATION: 45 PAP: 5/1UP LAYOUT: 45X5X20 Introducing the strongest entry level balls on the market. To get any stronger would no longer be entry level. The Solid Thrill is my pick for ball of the year. This is a ball that will compliment any style of bowler on a wide variety of lane and oil conditions. The shell is early enough that it sees the mid lane to give you a smooth and predictable motion to the pocket. It hits like no other entry level piece. If you're looking for that first ball out of the bag to give you control and a read on what the pattern is giving you, then this is the ball for you. It is def in my first 3 ball bag everywhere I go.I would recommend this to a friend

    The next level of THRILL is here with this entry level ball. I have never seen an entry level ball read the middle part of the lane so well and still retain enough energy downlane. This Top Thrill Solid reads the middle part of the lane just as good as your mid-range ball and still maintains its control and downlane motion into the pocket. If you need something earlier and still motion downlane for your leagues, this ball is for you!
