Motiv Forza SS Bowling Ball Review

The Forza SS…It’s a Hot Rod First Impressions If you were to go with Motiv’s chart, you would think the Forza SS would roll a little smoother and stronger than the Chronic Paranoia but it’s definitely more ball everywhere. More on that later but I must say I very much enjoy the Sigma core and […]
