The Octane Carbon from Motiv was designed for light to medium oil lanes and offers length with a continuous backend motion. This ball has the Agitator MXR (MaXimum energy Retention) Pearl Reactive coverstock and is finished with a 5500 grit LSP. The Injector core has a higher RG which helps the ball go further down the lane before breaking and the coverstock helps retain the balls energy. The core utilizes a dual-density design along with a moderate differential to produce a responsive backend reaction. Bottom line is that the Red Fire Pearl Octane Carbon creates easy length down the lane with continuous backend motion that powers through the pin deck.
Compared to the octane burn, the carbon has much better continuation and can blend the lanes out more. This ball is absolutely fantastic on medium oil conditions. In fact, I already have a 300 game with it in its first week of use. Compared to the paranoia, the carbon has a more continuous shape while still storing enough energy and angle to go through the pins strong.Adam Chase
I never leave home without this ball. This is my favorite light to med oil ball. I typically play it around the 8 to 12 boards and it hits the pocket with a great amount of energy. While I am an avg bowler, I've rolled many games in the high ones to 200 plus games. Great for THS and league , but also great when the lanes have broken down during tournaments. This ball was highly recommended by my sons coaches and our local pro shop.
This ball is good sometimes but it also really sucks
This ball is a perfect THS ball and excels on lighter oil. If you bowl on light oil shorts or need a ball for when the lanes break down you've found the ball for you! I bowl on a light oil THS for league and practice and this is my go to ball for both. Also when the lanes have broken down in a tournament and everything is hooking too much I pull this ball out and get lined up within one frame and continue to bowl very well. If I'm bowling a tournament and I'm leaving ring 10s I'll pull this ball out to bring the break point closer to me to get the 10 out.
