The Thrash is newest addition to the Motiv family. This ball takes a proven core that goes all the way from the QZ1 Purple and Red to the last time we saw it in the QZ2 Quadfire. It gives a different motion than anything before because of the use of the new Z-Max reactive coverstock. This 1000 Abralon finished shell creates friction much quicker than any ball in the QZ series thus far.

Despite such a low grit, this cover is not as responsive to dry parts of the lane. For this reason all three testers had their best reactions on the medium oil test pattern. The smoother breakpoint should allow it to perform extremely well on conditions
