The Perfect Fit Plan

Ordering a perfect-fitting pair of shoes online can be a real challenge! Bowling shoes may not fit the same as street shoes or sneakers. Different manufacturers and different materials mean different cutting styles and fits. Heels too loose? Toes too tight? Wouldn’t it be great if you could just send those shoes back at no cost and get the next size up or down?

Of course, you can always send unused shoes back, but the cost of shipping can really add up! A second trip back and forth the country can easily cost you $30-$40 before your feet are finally snug.

That’s why we offer the Perfect Fit Plan. When you purchase the plan together with your shoes, you are guaranteed the perfect fit without paying any additional shipping charges. We will issue you a shipping label to send your shoes back and have the correct ones delivered to you free of charge using FedEx Ground Service (continental US residents only).

Exchange Policy: Shoes must be returned in new condition with no visible wear. Shoes must be returned with original packaging protected by an outer box. Claims must be within 10 days of delivery. This offer is only applicable for 1 exchange. Issuing a shipping label does not mean the package will be picked up from your home/office. You will need to drop the package off at your local FedEx shipping location.

Drilling Insurance (optional) $9.95

We will replace your bowling ball free of charge if it cracks during drilling by a pro shop. Ball drillers are not held liable and manufacturers don't typically cover cracking during drilling.

Insurance Details:
  • Ball must be drilled within 10 days of delivery.
  • Drilling Insurance must be purchased at the same time the ball is purchased.
  • Drilling Insurance is only available to residents living in the Contiguous U.S.
  • Ball must be returned to our location for inspection along with a receipt for proof of drilling (we pay freight back to you).
  • If ball is being drilled by us, drilling insurance is NOT required.

People should be nervous when you pull this ball out of your bag. Featuring a brand new core and cover system, the Paranoia is the next step in MOTIV evolution. It provides a strong and consistent motion down lane with insane angle and unbelievable continuation through the pins.

The Purple Paranoia will compliment many balls in the MOTIV product line. It will provide more total hook than the Venom Shock and Octane Burn while still providing more angle down lane. The Paranoia will also give more length and angle than the Forza or the Forza Redline without sacrificing over all hook.

Blend Wet/Dry with power at the end! Review by Wya_rya
What I love about the Paranoia is that down lane motion. Although it is more angular, its transition through the mid-lane is very clean. In the time I have been throwing this piece, I have rarely felt that it would not finish and finish hard when reaching the pocket unless it was an error on my part. Just yesterday evening in league, I was throwing a Revolt Vengeance the first 2 games of the set. The final frames of the 2nd game, the Vengeance was just simply starting to turn over just a bit too soon and the slightest move right (remember... Lefty here!), the ball just would not face up the way I felt comfortable to maximize my score. So the 3rd game, I switch to my Paranoia. Now, my Paranoia has the same drilling as my Vengeance with the Pin squarely below my bridge and the CG slightly kicked out to the left. I then moved everything just 1 board to the left (Feet at 19 ½ Lay down at 10 and break-point at 7). Front 10 and a ringing 7 pin later and I finish with a 289. The Paranoia was able to clear the front part of the lane with little effort and with most of its energy being retained, the ball read the friction down lane and drove them the pins like a bulldozer.

Paranoia Review Review by Motiv Paranoia Review

Motiv Bowling has introduced the New Motiv Paranoia. I drilled my Paranoias just like I drill all my symmetrical balls (65 x 4 1/2 x 35) and one pin down (55 x 4 1/2 x 65). This ball is becoming one of my favorite bowling balls to date. The Motiv Paranoia is featuring a brand new core and cover for medium oil. It provides a strong and consistent motion down lane with incredible angle. With the new Agitator Pearl Reactive cover, this really allows me to be aggressive with each shot and not wonder if its going to hook. IT WILL HOOK!

Motiv is always raising the bar with every new release. With the new Oblivion™ core (2.53/.047 in 15#). The Oblivion™ is a dual density core that will provide bowlers with an incredible change of direction down lane. Please visit your nearest pro today and get this must have ball! #getmotivated

#Freakout Review by Mags
Description: The Paranoia consists of an all core and cover combination. The NEW Dual Density Oblivion Core is matched up the NEW Agitator Pearl Reactive Coverstock. The Paranoia will be found in the Medium Oil/Angular category of MOTIV’s Ball Guide: ( Please use this guide to help determine what ball will best suit you or to compare your current MOTIV balls, it is VERY reliable!
Reaction: MOTIV is marketing the ball as controlled angularity…as you’ll see from the video it’s possible. Think of a ball that is still very clean in terms of length, but instead of it happening all at once it’s a just a little more gradual. I have used the Forza Redline as my benchmark ball since it has been released and it’s my go to ball on house patterns. The Paranoia has now taken some of that time away, as it allows me to play in similar spots with my feet, but really opens the lane up left to right. The key is that the Paranoia doesn’t bounce too hard off of the friction either, resulting in great carry. I also like it in terms of hook potential as well. It doesn’t force me too far left on the fresh causing me to see the wet/dry that you often see on house patterns. So far on tougher patterns if you are looking for something that will really create some shape down lane, yet give you some control, this is going to be that piece. Especially, if you aren’t looking for something that is overly strong or overly week.
Comparisons: I will be comparing the Paranoia to 3 balls in MOTIV’s current line. First, I find the Octane Burn to be actually a little earlier, close in response to friction but I would have to give the edge to the Paranoia, and the Octane Burn is a few boards less overall in terms of hook potential. Next, the Primal Rage is close in terms of length, responds a little faster to friction, but the Paranoia is a little more continuous and the Primal Rage also hook a few more boards overall. Finally, the Forza Redline is earlier, smoother and once again provides more overall hook potential. I think the Paranoia has become a key ball for MOTIV as it provides a lot of shape down lane but isn’t too strong or too weak.
Summary: Well, this ball really gets down the lane and really allows me to cover some boards without sacrificing carry. It has become a benchmark ball for when I need some steeper angles. Once again this release provides great continuation, which honestly seems to be the case with every MOTIV release.
