The Octane Burn from Motiv was designed for light to medium oil lanes and offers length with a powerful backend reaction. This ball has the Helix SFP Reactive coverstock and is finished with a 5500 grit LSP finish. This combination is clean with a good reaction to friction while being angular with a smooth transition and control. The Quadfire core helps provide length and good track flare. For most bowlers this is a great go to ball when the lanes start to break down. Competitive bowlers will enjoy the consistency this ball provides as well as the controlled transition at the backend.
The Octane burn for me can handle much more oil then the original Octane. The stronger cover in the ball allows for more midlane traction on medium to lighter oil patterns. Compared to the original Octane, the burn is much more predictable and is still great even when the lanes get pretty dry in the backend. It is a ball that is slightly cleaner then the Shock but still has the motion of the Shock, so it is a great 1-2 punch when the Shock becomes too early and lazy down the lane.
too aggressive for me
very good ball
My boyfriend loves this ball. I don't know anything about bowling but he says that the ball is great...
