Motiv VIP
« on: September 01, 2020, 02:13:23 PM »
Found some information out there on a supplier website, bringing back the Quad fire core which was last used with the Octane series I believe

"To develop the debut pearl edition, we have been working
closely with EJ Tackett to create a special bowling ball that stands apart in
our product line.  For the VIP™ we are bringing back with one of EJ’s
favorite MOTIV® cores to create angle down lane – the Quadfire™.  It is
merged with our latest cover technology to create a medium oil pearl that
delivers outstanding length and a very angular backend motion.  Because
this pearl VIP™ is being developed alongside EJ Tackett it will also bear his
ExJ brand logo."

Was there a good Octane ball? I think the last one was decent but that's an odd choice to bring back and hype up as Motiv's version of the Belmo line.

I loved the Octane Carbon, but it wasn't the Quadfire core. The Octane was okay with a bit of surface, but the stated "box" surface made it too unpredictable.

Bring back the QuadFire!

After thinking about it, I liked the blue Octane also, if I remember correctly it was the Octane Burn. That was a good ball.

EJ loved the Octane. This isn't a shock. As always, knock the shine off the Infusion cover, and reapply polish if needed. I remember watching the Octane videos and liking the motion.

I didn't think that ball looked like anything special when EJ threw it over the summer.

EJ said he hadn't practiced and the ball didn't matter at all, he wasn't in bowling shape. Give it a little time and we'll see what it's actually like, he loved the Octane, but as we've seen with signature balls from other brands, they aren't always as good as the sum of their parts.
