Description: The Octane Burn uses the same Quadfire core as the original Octane, but with the brand new Helix SFP coverstock. The addition of the Octane Burn has filled MOTIV’s slot for an angular, light to medium oil ball, which mean it’s now available at a cheaper price point.

Reaction: The Octane Burn is a couple feet earlier than the original Octane. It is also a little slower to respond to friction, allowing for a little more control down lane. However, the hook potential is very similar between the Octane Burn and the original Octane, it’s just the shape that has been altered (but is a big difference). It’s definitely not a ball that I would use on the fresh for most patterns as it is just not strong enough and we have other pieces made for the fresh. I do however like it when I need to stay a little closer to the friction and still get the ball to have really good continuation.

Comparisons: In my video I only compared the Octane Burn against two other balls currently in production. The first was the Venom Panic, which is noticeably earlier and more forward when exiting the pattern compared to the Octane Burn. Next, the Graffiti Tag is cleaner than the Octane Burn and provides a faster response to friction. Although the Graffiti Tag may appear to hook more at times it is because of how much stronger down lane the Graffiti Tag is. One more additional note, although not compared in the video this release will be a great transition piece when the Venom Shock is too early and too strong. I think because of the popularity of the Venom Shock this will put in perspective where this new release fits.

Summary: This is a modified version of the original Octane. For those who felt that the original Octane wasn’t reliable enough or couldn’t be thrown on a wide variety of conditions will appreciate the modifications on the Octane Burn. It will give you plenty of length and control on patterns with lots of friction.
