Motiv Forge Ember Bowling Ball Features:
When to Use:
Speed dominant Bowlers: The Forge Ember will serve as an outstanding benchmark ball for bowlers who are speed dominant. Bowlers with higher speed and/or lower rev rates need more traction on the lane, but for a benchmark still need some down lane motion. The Forge Ember will provide the reliability and versatility needed from a benchmark or lane reader ball in the bag of a speed dominant player.
Balanced Bowlers: Balanced bowlers will use the Forge Ember on higher volume or longer oil patterns and lower friction surfaces when their go-to ball is just a bit too weak to make it back to the pocket. When the massive asymmetrical balls are too strong or too forward down lane, but the benchmark pieces just can not hook enough, the Forge Ember fits perfectly into the void.
Rev Dominant Bowlers: For many Rev Dominant bowlers the Forge Ember will be the strongest symmetrical ball they ever need. Many rev dominant players prefer symmetrical pieces, but there are few with covers strong enough to use on high volumes of oil and fresh patterns. The most rev dominant bowlers will use the Forge Ember as the first ball in their progression on high concentrations of oil.
The brand new Forge Ember may be one of the best balls I’ve thrown straight out of the box. As someone who has enjoyed the Forge line, especially with the Iron Forge being my favorite ball in the bag, the Forge Ember exceeded my expectations. The Infusion MXC Hybrid cover stock with the Detonator core is perfect for above benchmark reaction. I’ve been throwing this ball on heavier/longer oil patterns as well during league when I need a little more hook! It has impressed me from the first shot I threw with it! Don’t miss out on this one.

The Forge Ember is the newest ball in our Forge line. A new hybrid from Motiv Bowling. Bowlers will find this ball stronger in the oil. With it being strong you still won’t lose the down lane motion that it provides. With that combination it gives you the ability to use the Forge Ember for longer spurts of time.
The Forge Ember has the very popular Detonator core. The Detonator core is a strong continuous low RG with high diff core. The low RG gives you control while the high diff gives you strength.

Let me start off in saying the Forge line is my favorite of all time. The Ember gives me the OG red Forge vibes. Super Heavy up front but not nearly as forward as the OG red Forge. Compared to Motiv’s current lineup I have the Ember earlier than the Trident Odyssey with a more continuous motion but cannot handle the volume like the Legacy can. This ball will excel when a player needs a ball to blend out the pattern and needing to give away the pocket but will have a max out point when moving left due to how heavy the ball rolls. All in all, a great addition to the Forge lineup.

The Forge Ember combines all of the best qualities of balls like the Forge Flare and Revolt Uprising, with all of the best qualities from balls like the VIP Affliction, Iron Forge, and Forge Fire. This creates a ball that read the midlane better than the Affliction, Iron, and Fire, but retains more energy and continues through the pins significantly better than the Flare and Uprising. The Forge Ember is an extremely versatile shape that fits in a bag as a Strong Benchmark that can be thrown on nearly any pattern!

This Forge Ember is AWESOME. Easily the strongest, earliest hybrid I’ve ever thrown. The detonator core is proving to be one of those special cores that no matter what cover you put around it, this core just rolls really well.
I find most use for this ball on higher volumes, fresh and shorter patterns, and also on longer flatter patterns. This ball truly digs through the oil HARD, but still shapes enough down lane to go through the pins the right way when you have to start opening up your angles slightly. This ball WINS
