Moxy STRIFE Bowling Ball 

The Moxy® STRIFE™ is our 3rd ball in the Moxy Bowling Products High Performance Bowling Ball line. With the success of our Moxy Exothermic Series, we wanted to offer a ball that would complement the Exothermic and the Exothermic Burst. This ball is that perfect High Performance Asymmetrical Ball for heavier and longer oil patterns. The Moxy Strife takes total hook to an extremely high level. It is time to create some STRIFE with the pins!

When we set out to create the Moxy® STRIFE, our goal was to create a ball motion that would be perfect for heavier and/or long oil. With the Strife Asymmetric Core and the extremely aggressive STRIFE Coverstock, we did just that. During our extensive testing, this ball worked very well for bowlers with all different styles and rev rates. Even the bowlers with the higher rev rates found this ball to not burn up to early like some Asymmetric Solid coverstock bowling balls. The lower rev and “tweeners” really liked this ball on freshly oiled lanes when other balls in their bag would not make the turn in the oil.

The STRIFE™ Solid coverstock is manufactured with the latest additives in coverstock technology to create an extremely aggressive ball motion for heavier oil for all styles. With the Higher Differential Strife Core, this ball still saves energy for an aggressive continuation through the pins.

    For me this ball is a early heavy rolling that digs through oil and hits the pins like a truck!

    The Moxy Strife is the company’s third ball to be introduced. It complements the Exothermic duo, and its forte is longer, heavier oil patterns.

    The STRIFE™ High Diff Asymmetric core has extremely high rev and flare potential. It will “stand up” sooner in the midlane, and it helps get the ball to make its move to the pocket.

    The STRIFE™ Solid Reactive coverstock comes factory finished with a 500 Siaair/2000 Siaair mix, and it reads the lane very well. Again, the cover’s strength is in the oil…

    My Strife is drilled with the pin in the ring finger, a strong placement considering my positive axis point is 4 1/8″ right of center and 3/8″ above the midline. The CG is below the midline in the positive thumb quadrant, and the mass bias is placed in a strong position below and right of the thumb. No X hole was needed; I am drilling all future orbs in compliance with the new USBC rules banning balance holes.

    I also increased the grit of the ball using a combo of 360 and 500 Abralon pads. The intent was to get a strong read from foul line to the pit.

    I have used this ball on wood lanes oiled with a THS (typical house shot) AND on the 2018 USBC Open Tournaments pattern last May in Syracuse, New York.

    On the softer surface house pattern, the Strife was a bit too strong. Surprisingly, the added grit did not create burnout; there was slight energy retention through the front part of the lane. My best trajectory was standing far left on the approach, crossing middle arrow, and hitting the breakpoint between second and third arrow to the pocket. In addition, the speed and rotation needed the right balance to get the optimum result.

    On the synthetic surface Open pattern in Syracuse, this ball shined! The cross alley trajectory was much tighter, and I could play a much slower speed so that the core and cover combo could work its magic on the harder, slicker alleys. Hitting power and carry were exceptional, and continuation through the rack was not a problem. I averaged 195 for all nine games with the Strife, one of the very few times I did not switch equipment for an entire tournament!

    In all, this is indeed a great piece on longer and heavier oil. It has power on tap with no signs of quit. With the benchmark ball (original Exothermic) and the “open” ball (the Burst), the Strife adds to the Moxy line without any reaction overlap in the arsenal. Get one today… and leave no pin standing!
