“This is the strongest pearl symmetric ever manufactured by MOTIV® Bowling and it’s not even close.” - Nick Pahr - Motiv R&D
The Iron Forge™ is, without a doubt, the strongest pearl symmetric Motiv has made to date. The latest addition to the popular Forge™ line, the Iron Forge™ has the same Detonator™ core as previous Forges™, but with the proven Infusion™ MVP pearl seen on the Ripcord™ Velocity. The combination creates unbelievable angle on medium-heavy oil conditions.
Inside the Iron Forge™ is the Detonator™ core. This low rg / high differential core is the same absolute beast of a core used in the ultra strong Forge™ Flare. The low rg and high differential core is stable, with a wide footprint on the lane; this combination equals more total hook, but also more mid-lane traction and control than other symmetrical core options. This uniquely strong symmetrical core is what allows us to use such a clean and angular coverstock in moderately heavy oil patterns.
Around the Iron Forge™ is the Infusion™ MVP coverstock, the fastest response and most angular cover ever made by MOTIV®. This cover has only previously been used on the Ripcord™ Velocity, which is widely accepted as the most angular ball ever made by MOTIV®. Using this cover with such a strong core allows bowlers to see that proven angle on higher volumes of oil or earlier in their progression than they are able to use the Ripcord™ Velocity.
