The Venom Cobra will be moving left on the ball guide (Octane Burn is gone) and this will be taking it's spot. Vertically (Hook potential) on the ball guide it will be in between a Paranoia and a Graffiti Tag. It is the cleanest and most angular ball MOTIV has made.

For me it is cleaner and has even more shape down lane.

Octane Carbon
« Reply #5 on: March 21, 2017, 02:59:03 PM »
This ball is the newest introduction into the Octane line of bowling balls. However, the MOTIV Octane Carbon features a totally new Injector core and Agitator MXR cover. It's super clean through the front of the lane and OMG can you say strong backend reaction. And of course, it has the continuation that has come to be expected from MOTIV bowling balls.

It will be a great fit in your bag on light to medium oil. It’s clean, strong and continuous. What else could you want from a ball.

My Octane Carbon is laid out with the pin above the ring fingers, the CG basically stacked (just a slight shift right) and has no extra hole. This ball is not afraid to be thrown right and have plenty of backends to recover.  This ball is clean, as would be expected from most pearlized balls, but does not have that allergic to oil issue that you’ll find in a lot of pearl bowling balls.  I can see this being my go to ball on the burn when opening the lane up becomes required.

Probably just me but I thought my Venom Cobra was more angular than the Carbon...

I liked the Burn!   It looks like that I may be one of the few!  Someone mentioned the TAG.  Not a fan!!   Other pieces to choose from.

In Mags video, the Cobra looked the most angular to me in his comparisons
Harley's Simi Bowl (Simi Valley, CA)
Sunset West (St George, UT)

The Cobra may look like it because it does it a foot sooner than the Octane Carbon.

I didn't watch the video but from my own experience that's how it worked for me. Have the Carbon drilled the same as I had my Cobra. I also felt the Carbon was a tad earlier than the Cobra. I'm sure everyone will feel different just my experience.
