About Motiv

Motiv has manufactured millions of high performance cores for top bowling ball brands since the 1990s. Currently based in Muskegon, Michigan, Motiv produces powerful, top-quality bowling balls that incorporate their patented graphics technology which integrates multi-color logos into the cover stock with no engraving required.

Not only are the graphics visually distinctive, but the technology can improve performance. The balls are highly resistant to cracking and chipping and enable the ball to maintain consistent reaction down the lane.

In 2012, Motiv bowling balls won first place in every single performance category in a poll of highly competitive tournament bowlers conducted by Bowling This Month magazine.

Motiv has recently created its strongest symmetrical bowling ball called the Forge. The Forge line has replace the Revolt line and feature a weight block and cover that offer massive hook potential as well as smooth motion on medium-heavy oil conditions.

Clean & Care for Your Bowling Ball

Taking care of your bowling ball will prolong its life and prevent it from losing its hook potential.

Polishing and Oil Extraction

Because coverstocks are porous, your bowling ball will absorb some oil every time it goes down the lane. The oil and dirt causes the ball’s performance to decline over time.

At the very least, towel the oil off the ball regularly.  When you watch the professionals on tour, you will see them wipe oil off their equipment before almost every shot.  This helps to ensure consistent ball motion.

Consider a cleaning product like Ebonite Powerhouse Power Wash Ball Cleaner which contains emulsifiers that accelerate oil removal and removes oil, dirt, and belt marks from the ball’s surface.

If you have already noticed a difference in performance, it may also be a good time for Ebonite Powerhouse Factory Finish Ball Polish. It contains no silicones or waxes and provides a long-lasting high luster and smooth ball surface.

Toweling off your ball and cleaning and polishing it regularly will extend its performance life and improve the consistency of your ball reaction.


In general, your bowling ball should be resurfaced by a pro shop professional after about 50 games.  Polished bowling balls with a higher grit rating will need to be resurfaced less often because they wear better and last longer.

The online store is open 24/7 to help you find Motiv bowling balls as well as bags, shoes and accessories. For more information, give us a call at 844.269.5379. Our friendly, experienced staff of real bowlers is always happy to answer any questions you may have.
