The Octane Burn is Motiv’s latest release to use their proven Quadfire symmetrical core shape. While it shares the same weight block with the original Octane, the Octane Burn uses the Helix SFP coverstock, which comes out of the box with a polished finish.

Tweener could be firm and aggressive with his ball speed near the track area and without any
