Motiv Octane Carbon Bowling Ball Features:
The Motiv Octane Carbon, the third ball released under the Octane name, uses a different core design than the previous two releases. The Carbon’s new Injector core offers similar specs to the Quadfire core used before, but with a slightly higher RG (2.56″) and a very slightly lower differential (0.042″). The Agitator MXR (MaXimum energy Retention) Pearl coverstock is new to the Motiv family and it certainly lives up to its name. Thanks in part to this polished pearl cover, the Octane Carbon achieves a lot of length, even with minimal effort to make it do so on the part of the bowler. This ball is easily the longest of everything in the Motiv line besides the Freestyle, but with a much stronger recovery than that ball when it gets to the dry.
• Featuring a totally new core and cover, the Octane line has been completely overhauled to produce the Carbon edition. This impressive piece of high performance engineering is super responsive and corners hard! On light-medium oil conditions, the Red Fire Pearl Octane Carbon offers easy length and continuous backend motion that clears the deck with explosive power.
• The synergies of the brand new dual-density Injector core and Agitator MXR (MaXimum energy Retention) Pearl Reactive cover stock are what make the Octane Carbon so special. The core has a higher RG to push the ball transition further down the lane and it is complimented by the energy retention of the Agitator MXR Reactive shell, which is tuned with a 5500 Grit LSP finish.
• The impressive power of the Octane Carbon’s core/cover synergy is also clearly demonstrated at the backend of the lane. The Injector core’s dual-density design and moderate differential produce a very responsive transition, which is boosted by a release of energy from the Agitator MXR Reactive cover stock. The resulting ball motion and continuation are incredibly powerful.
