Following the success of the Blue Tank Motiv went back to the drawing board to develop a ball that would be even stronger. The Tour Edition Motiv Carbide Tank upper-mid performance bowling ball is armored in the Frixion M4 Solid MCP which is the strongest Microcell Polymer coverstock so far. This coverstock mimics reactive resin more than traditional urethane. This coverstock helps offer a smooth motion on the heavy oil seen on today's competitive bowling lanes. This bowling ball has a 1000-grit finish that uses a technology that resists lane shine and holds on to the out-of-the-box dull sanded finish longer. The Carbide Tank uses the same symmetric Gear core as the ever-popular Venom Shock. This core has a low RG and moderate differential that assist in reducing track flare and help the ball to rev up faster and dig into the oil early.
