Motiv Blue Coral Venom Bowling Ball Features: 

The Motiv Blue Coral Venom is the latest stage of evolution in the historic Venom line of bowling balls.  As the line turns ten years old, Motiv is proud to unveil the first ever hybrid asymmetric Venom.  The development of the Blue Coral Venom focused on versatility and benchmark reaction for moderately high friction surfaces or medium-dry lanes.  In many ways, this Venom is an upgrade from the wildly successful Venom Recoil.  The hybrid Coercion cover provides more traction in the oil than a Venom Shock with more continuation down lane than the Venom Recoi while the Gear APG core offers reliability and control.


The Infusion Hybrid reactive cover previously seen on the VIP Affliction and Forge Fire is now available at a substantially lower price point and paired with a proven core.  This cover provides traction in the oil with incredible control and continuation.  This rendition of Infusion Hybrid is finished to 4000 grit to allow clean motion through the front, but without sacrificing control down lane.


The Gear APG is known as the go-to core for Motiv staff on the PBA Tour.  When patterns are wet-dry, low volume, or short, the tour staffers seem to rely on the unique low differential asymmetric Gear APG core more than any.  The uniqueness of the Venom line has always been the impressive strength and versatility of the balls considering their low differential and radius of gyration.  Add to that uniqueness an intermediate differential of .013 and you have a core unlike any other.  Bowlers are able to use a more aggressive coverstock from shallower angles than other balls allow because of the lower differential and the asymmetry of the ball helping it to get forward through the pins.

When to Use:

Speed Dominant Bowlers

For speed dominant bowlers, this will be a medium dry lane ball for use at shallow angles.  While many balls for medium-dry to dry lanes tend to skip past the break point for speed dominant bowlers, the high performance coverstock on the Blue Coral Venom will have no trouble gripping the lane.  Additionally, the Gear APG core allows players who like to play straighter to do so with more ease.  This should be a great ball for speed dominant players to play more direct on fairly dry lanes.

Balanced Bowlers

Bowlers with speed and rev rate that match will find many uses for the Blue Coral Venom, due to the versatility it offers.  This Venom has more traction in the oil than any before it.  The Blue Coral Venom has more traction in oil than the Venom Shock, and offers much more control than the Fatal Venom.  Balanced bowlers will be able to use the Blue Coral Venom from a variety of angles on medium to medium-dry lanes when other Venoms can’t dig in the oil, but other high performance balls are just too strong.

Rev Dominant Bowlers

For rev dominant bowlers the Blue Coral Venom is a perfect benchmark ball.  Due to lower speed or higher rev rates, players of this classification often need to “ball down” from what balanced or speed dominant bowlers would use.  While the Blue Coral Venom is classified as a medium-dry oil ball, for those who are rev dominant it is a benchmark that offers moderately clean and controllable ball motion.

    The Blue Coral Venom is the first hybrid asymmetric found in one of Motiv’s most popular lines the Venom line. The newest addition the Blue Coral Venom is very versatile and gives a great benchmark reaction for higher friction surfaces. Compared to the other asymmetric Venom the Venom Recoil, the Blue Coral Venom gives a stronger and more continuous down lane motion. It’s a tad less than our popular benchmark piece the Pride but is better on higher friction than the Pride.

  2. Eric George

    Motiv is on one serious heater with the latest releases. Blue Coral Venom is straight fire out of the box, very similar to OG Shock but more of it. Compared to the Venom Recoil it is a bit cleaner with a more continuous shape. Definitely a must have if you are a fan of the venom line. I will be pulling this one first out of the bag at league and medium sport patterns. Super versatile ball that a player can stay in for the whole block. Motiv hybrid cover stocks are on point lately and this one is a sure fire winner.

    This Blue Coral Venom is another staple in the Venom line. With this Venom being the first ever hybrid, it reads the mid-lane and continues to push until it finds the dry and hooks. This ball is very controllable and continuous. It allows me to play different zones knowing that it will be smooth down lane and split the 8 and 9 pin. This is a must have ball in any bowler’s bag.

    The Blue Coral Venom might just be the next goat for Motiv. Obviously, the Venom Shock has proved itself time and time again and the Blue Coral Venom has stepped up to the plate. The blue coral is the first hybrid asymmetric in the Venom line. The coercion MFH cover mixed with the proven Gear APG core allows for versatility while drilling the ball to create different motions. I consider the Blue Coral as the perfect compliment to the Venom Shock. I have used this ball a lot on medium-short patterns and when there is friction, It offers great control of the pocket. If you want success and versatility, the Blue Coral Venom is for you.

    I drilled up my Blue Coral with the same layout as my Pride (60x5x30) and was immediately blown away with the results! The Blue Coral definitely gets down the lane nicely but provides a nice shape off the friction! This ball is definitely a benchmark type ball for me, in between my Pride and Venom Shock. If you’re looking for a ball that’s very versatile, especially on your THS, then this is the ball for you!

    Given the massive popularity of not only the Venom Recoil, but the Venom line in general, I had really high hopes for this one. The Blue Coral Venom or BCV for short, has easily become a top 2 Venom of all time for me, with the Shock being the other of the two. I can’t truly decide which one I like more as the Shock has truly stood the test of time, but the BCV is insanely close. Even though I find them both to be absolutely amazing, I do find they have differences which makes me comfortable taking both to league or a tournament. The Shock is a bit rounder for me (layout is 60x5x30) and definitely reads earlier, while the BCV (layout is 70x5x30) is a bit cleaner and very responsive downlane. The BCV is the perfect step up from the Fatal Venom if it’s too clean, and a perfect step down from the Shock if it’s too round or too early. If you have a need for a mid-level, quicker responding ball, or if you just really enjoy the Venom line in general, this is not one you want to skip out on!
