The Primal Fear is the latest in the incredibly successful Primal™ line of MOTIV® bowling balls. Continuing with the intimidating performance standards set by the Primal Rage and Primal Rage Remix, the Primal Fear is an angular monster built for medium-heavy oil patterns.
The proven Impulse™ V2 core at the center of the Primal Fear remains one of the most advanced in the industry. The dynamic dual-density design provides a strong skid-flip reaction and backend propulsion that is incredibly impressive. Integrating this core technology with new Voracity™ Pearl Reactive cover stock, the Primal Fear delivers more power and continuation than ever before. Voracity™ is the most aggressive and most angular pearl cover ever used in the Primal™ line. The Primal Fear is tuned with a 5000 Grit LSP finish.
Fans of the Primal Rage will appreciate the ability of the Primal Fear to combat higher viscosity oils and higher volume patterns. Bowlers who have thrown the Remix edition will find that the Primal Fear is cleaner down the lane with improved continuation.

Continuous Angle Review by Wya_rya
Well my MOTIV Faithfuls, it’s difficult to believe the day would come when we would have to bid adios to the piece that put MOTIV on the map. I’m sure like I, many of you felt empty when it was announced that the infamous #RedBall would no longer be available to us. The ‘Fear’ soon began to develop as I wonder what would happen now… Don’t worry my friends! The fear that you have will cease to exist... at least for you anyway...
The phenomenon that was the Primal Rage was something that could not be left fade away. And with that belief in mind, this phenomenon has a new name, but a familiar feel that we have grown to need in our arsenal. That name is the Primal Fear. What MOTIV has done is taken the proven and game-changing dual-density core in the Impulse V2 core and given it a facial. We find the Fear wrapped in the new Voracity Pearl Reactive cover stock, which gives us even more power and continuation than what was seen in the Primal Rage. This cover is easily the most aggressive and angular pearl I have ever thrown.
The Primal Fear is absolutely insane in my opinion. This piece just generates angle but yet has a very surprisingly clean roll as it clears the front and mid-lane before it transitions into its roll. I rarely have difficult finding an area on the lane I can use the Fear and still have it face up the right way to carry with the type of angle and continuation it can generate. Just in the month of December alone, I was able to throw two 300s, an 824 and an 855 and if I had to guesstimate, ten high-270 games. The Primal Fear allows me to open up any pattern with confidence because the word ‘quit’ just does not exist in its dictionary. The only time an even consider putting the Fear away is when I start experiencing some unexpected carry down on the left that causes the Fear to labor at the break-point and loose of its continuation.
