Motiv Pride Empire Bowling Ball Features:

The Pride Empire introduces a new level of backend speed to the MOTIV line.  Featuring the brand-new Propulsion Pearl Reactive cover stock, this beast showcases an angular response unlike anything before.

The MOTIV engineering team has been making clear advancements, leading the industry in pearl cover tech in recent years, and this new Propulsion system is the pinnacle of angular performance.  Utilizing this new pearl cover, the Pride Empire pushes through the front of the lane with ease, storing energy for a dynamic move down lane.  And that’s at a 5000 Grit laser-scanned finish!  Bowlers who desire maximum length and a violent response to friction can adjust the finish to a higher grit like 5500, but they may get more than they bargained for.  We kept it at 5000 to tame this beast a touch.

The Dominion asymmetrical core at the heart of the Pride Empire also displays special characteristics.  A moderate primary RG differential and low intermediate allow the ball to dominate on lower oil volumes and higher friction surfaces than more powerful asymmetric balls like the Jackals, which are designed for higher volume patterns.  Additionally, the asymmetric physics of the Pride Empire provides ball drillers with greater layout versatility since weight holes are no longer allowed in competition.

When To Use:

  • Speed Dominant Bowlers – For speed dominant bowlers who love to see angular motion, the Pride Empire will fit well below the Mythic Jackal in their bag.  The Mythic Jackal is a strong asymmetrical hybrid option for creating angular motion.  When that ball is too strong, speed dominant bowlers should have no issue stepping into a Pride Empire and creating even more angle to the friction.
  • Balanced Bowlers – For bowlers with a balanced speed to rev rate ratio, there are many uses for the Pride Empire.  A strong and smooth drilling will give the bowler a great ball to use behind their original pride to continue controlling the lane without worrying about the friction developing up front.  However, a balanced bowler using a cleaner and more angular drilling could use the Pride Empire to create more angle down lane than possible with anything else in their bag.  Balanced bowlers will find the Pride Empire to be a crucial piece in their tournament and league arsenals.
  • Rev Dominant Bowlers – Bowlers with substantial rev rates will see use for the Pride Empire when they want to maintain control of the lane while still creating a substantial angle.  This will serve as the most angular ball in the middle of a rev dominant player’s progression.

    The Pride Empire is the newest ball added to our amazing arsenal from Motiv bowling. The Pride Empire has the Dominion™ asymmetrical core, also featured in the original Pride. Wrapped around the Propulsion Pearl Reactive cover stock. This Pride Empire gets through the fronts extremely well, and has a sharp response to friction down lane. The versatility in this ball is incredible, you can add polish to make the ball quicker down lane response or scoff the cover up and make it an earlier piece to the bag.

    The brand new Pride Empire is downright amazing. As soon as I threw this ball, I knew it was a must have. The first thing that sparked my interest about this ball was the shelf appeal, the emerald green pops as soon as you see it. The Dominion asymmetric core has proven to be a fan favorite because of the control it allows bowlers to have. The propulsion Pearl cover stock is a perfect compliment to the core as this ball truly provides control and down lane motion. In both league and tournament play, the Pride Empire gives you everything you need.

    The new Pride Empire is a fantastic compliment to the original Pride, providing a very similar shape in the midlane. The Empire sets itself apart with the backend continuation when compared to the Pride. Drilled 60-5”-35 gave me great control and predictability being able to control the lane front to back when transition hit. This ball fits right in the middle of Motiv’s current ball lineup giving the player a very versatile ball when the lanes are a bit on the dry side.
