Motiv continues their tough Tank line of bowling balls with the Motiv Desert Tank Pearl. This pearl version uses the same Frixion+ Microcell Polymer technology as its predecessor. This technology combines the smooth motion of urethane with the continuation of reactive resin. This ball was designed to handle light volumes of oil with smoothness provided by the low differential Flux core. The cover and core paired with a 2000 Grit LSS finish create a bowling ball that is controllable when the lanes are drier and cause more friction making it a great match for speed-dominant bowlers.

How is this compared to Fever Pitch?
They are actually very close in performance. The weight block on the Fever Pitch has a little more flare potential but it is not a huge difference in over all performance.
similar to the covert tank ?
There are two key differences in the Desert Tank and the Covert Tank. The Desert Tank has the Pearl version of the Friction Microcell Polymer coverstock to give it more length. Also, the weight block on the Desert Tank has a lower RG Diff and it will not have as much flare as the Covert Tank. So in all the Desert Tank goes longer and has a little less hook than the Covert Tank so if your Covert was too strong for what you needed then you could try the Desert Tank.
when is the release date ?
This ball will release on June 17th.
My shop person told me this ball is on backorder for 2 weeks now. Are they available now. Motiv tank
We show to have these in stock right now so if you order we can ship it out for you.
What do you recommend using to clean the motive desert Tank.
There are two Motiv cleaner options that would work for this: https://www.bowling.com/products/motiv-amplify-cleaner-8-oz.htm or https://www.bowling.com/products/motiv-power-gel-clean-16-oz.htm
Can you polish this ball
Yes, you could add polish to this to give it more length but because this ball is already designed to have a low hook potential, adding polish will make this hook even less.
How does the Desert Tank compare to the 900 Global Shadow Ops and Brunswick Twist?
The Desert Tank would actually have similar overall hook potential to the Twist but the Desert Tank reads the lanes earlier and smoother than the Twist which hook more angular on the backend. The Shadow Ops was going to be stronger than both though. It has a stronger weight block to help it have a stronger reaction than the Desert Tank. So if you need something for really light oil that lets you play a smoother arcing hook then the Desert Tank will be your best option.
Due to the time it takes to produce the Motiv Desert Tank Pearl ball it will ship in immediately. We cannot ship this ball outside the United States.
