Motiv’s latest release, the Tribal Fire, falls into their upper mid performance price point. The Tribal Fire matches up the Halogen weight block that was used in the first Tribal with a hybrid formulation of the Fusion Reactive coverstock.

With the 5000 grit Laser Scan Polished box finish, we had the best reaction on our medium test pattern. Tweener and Stroker were able to play close to the second arrow while the pattern was fresh. Stroker was just inside the second arrow and Tweener was just a few boards
