This Tank™ is unlike any before!  The Carbide Tank™ is a Tour Edition release, armored in the strongest Microcell Polymer (MCP) cover stock to date. 

Following the proven success of the pearl Blue Tank, MOTIV set out to develop an even stronger solid MCP cover that was much closer to reactive resin than traditional urethane.  Frixion M4 is the upgradedeployed on the solid gray Carbide Tank.  This strong Tour Edition ball is built to provide a very smooth motion on the high viscosity oils used in the competitive bowling environment today.

To help resist lane shine, the 1000 grit Carbide Tank shell also features technology to boost the resilience of the dull sanded cover profile.  This enables the solid gray Frixion M4 shell to hold the box finish longer.

The Carbide Tank is driven by the proven symmetric Gear core, which is utilized in the world-renowned Venom Shock.  This core provides a low RG and a moderate differential.  The low RG makes the Carbide Tank rev up faster so it digs early in the oil.  The moderate differential reduces track flare for a more controlled energy release to prevent “roll out”.   

The Carbide Tank is very smooth at the breakpoint, providing a different motion than anything in the current Motiv line. This ball is very good at controlling the breakpoint on shorter, drier conditions.

Despite the larger amount of total hook for a Microcell Polymer ball, bowlers that are used to stronger downlane motions will need a bit of time to get used to the smoother motion of this ball. It was also not very effective on our heavy oil test pattern.

Overall Summary
The Carbide Tank provides more total motion than any previous Tank. Bowlers who missed the big overall motion of the Tank Blitz will find the Carbide Tank to be a good replacement.
