This is a specialist!
What this piece is capable of can be found in its name, the Covert Tank! I wasn't lying when I said the answer wasn't in urethane cover stock. The Cover Tank introduces us to a whole new cover stock that gives all the advantages that urethane has to offer, but helps eliminate the weakness. Say hello to the Frixion cover, its not urethane and its not reactive resin. This new cover is a microcell polymer, which provides its user with more continuation and improved pin carry that traditional urethane may not accomplish. This is done through this covers ability to absorb oil unlike traditional urethane but at only a fraction of reactive resin. Now add this cover stock to the Torx weight block. With the Torx as this new cover's engine, you find strong track flare, which provides more strength to its' backend motion without overly redistributing the oil.
Being a lefty that isn't heavy handed, a urethane piece never really provided a benefit to to my game given the draw backs it had. With urethane, I may find a path to the pocket, but at what cost? With this Covert Tank, I see none of these problems with the Covert Tank! With traditional urethane, creating reliable shape down-lane wasn't exactly a possibility unless the lanes were very broken down. This is not the case with the Covert Tank. I am simply astonished with this shape I can create both on a fresh house shot, short patterns, even broken down patterns. The Covert Tank filled a hole in my arsenal that I never knew I had. This to me is a specialist piece that can finish the job that a urethane piece can't.
