The Sky Raptor brings the Raptor name back to the Motiv line, but this time featuring the symmetrical Affliction V2 core. Motiv fans will recognize the Affliction name from the limited edition VIP Affliction release. It has a 2.48″ RG and a 0.055″ total differential that is paired up with the new Dynamic Infusion Pearl coverstock. The Sky Raptor comes out of the box at a 5000 grit LSS finish, which proved effective in a few different situations for our three testers.

Later in the session when it came time to move farther left into the heaviest part of the pattern, the difference in reaction between the Sky Raptor and balls like the Fatal Venom and Iron Forge was very noticeable, as it picked up earlier and was able to better handle the oil. With this reaction, Cranker had no need to change the surface at any
