Introducing the Black Venom™, a bold upgrade to the already incredible Venom™ line. This uncompromising new addition takes the Turmoil™ cover formulation from the highly decorated Venom™ Shock and gives it even bigger teeth with the new Turmoil™ MXC cover. Pairing this strong, solid cover with the Gear™ APG asymmetric core creates earlier read and more traction when attacking light-medium oil lane conditions.

The Turmoil™ cover formulation found on the Venom™ Shock has been the gold standard for benchmark performance since the Venom™ Shock’s release nine years ago. However, increasing oil volumes over the years has made the Venom™ Shock appear more angular in the opinion of most bowlers. The upgraded Turmoil™ MXC cover increases bite and provides the Black Venom™ with increased traction in the oil and a smoother motion on the lane.

The Gear™ APG core found in the Black Venom™ is a uniquely low RG / low differential asymmetric core. Originally developed to combat the loss of weight holes in sanctioned play, the Gear™ APG provides performance beyond its price point and versatility in drilling that allows bowlers to create many shapes with just one core.

Speed Dominant Bowlers - For bowlers who have always wanted a Venom™, but the previous releases have been too weak or condition specific, the Black Venom™ is ideal. The Black Venom™ is a modern adaptation of the original Venom™ Shock, meaning that it is now stronger and smoother. This should make the Black Venom™ the perfect Venom™ for people too speed dominant for its predecessors.

Balanced Bowlers - Bowlers with balanced speed to rev rate ratios will find incredible versatility from the Black Venom™. As in the Venom™ Shock, the real magic in the Black Venom™ is the ability to use it on a multitude of conditions and from shallow to steep angles.

Rev Dominant Bowlers - The Black Venom™ is the ideal benchmark ball for a rev dominant bowler. All bowlers need a ball to use as a lane reader that is right in the middle of their arsenal and can be used on most conditions. The moderate strength Turmoil™ MXC paired with such a low differential (.036) in the Gear™ APG is perfect for Rev Dominant bowlers.
