54 Hook 16.5 Length 16.5 Breakpoint Shape MOTIV: REVOLT VENGEANCE

Manufacturer’s Intent: “The Revolt Vengeance delivers a punishing blow on medi- um-heavy oil,” says Motiv Vice President of Marketing, Scott Hewitt. “Its overwhelming power is derived from the new Turmoil HFH Reactive coverstock and Vanquish weight block. The Turmoil HFH Reactive is a hybrid coverstock that has been engineered specifi- cally for the Revolt Vengeance. The solid black and ash gray pearl are integrated to produce moderate length and bulldozing continuation on medium-heavy oil.”

Core: The Vanquish symmetric core has an RG of 2.47, with a differential of .056. We saw more than 5 inches of flare. This is the same core used in the original Covert Revolt (March 2014).

Coverstock: The black and ash gray pearl Turmoil HFH reactive hybrid coverstock comes out of the factory with a 5000 grit LSP polished surface. The effective surface grit measured 4600 and the RA was 3.39.

Overview: The Revolt Vengeance lives up to it name, as it will wreak some vengeance on the pins, with a good pop off the backend. On Stone Street, the breakpoint never seemed to be too long. We could play in around 15 at the arrows and get all the way to the five-board at the breakpoint with recovery to the pocket. The ball was about five boards farther right with our feet than the Jackal (October 2014), and it cut through the oil a little more than the Octane (July 2014). The Revolt Vengeance never seemed to lose its hitting power as it drove through

the pins, keeping them close to the ball as it exploded off the deck. On the USBC Doubles/ Singles pattern, it forced us a little too deep on the fresh. We had a little over/under reaction, but it started to open up as we broke down the pattern, so this would be your number two ball on this pattern. We could use the Revolt Vengeance on the lighter house pattern from around 20 at the arrows to eight-board at the breakpoint. This ball really let us open up the pattern, because there was enough angle and oil in the fronts to help create a very good shot. Even though it can play from more extreme angles, I would suggest this ball for more direct shots on medium to longer patterns. It fits nicely on the Motiv ball chart between the Covert Revolt and the Primal Rage (July 2013).
