Motiv Desert Tank Pearl

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.

Dessert Tank

I have drilled two of these and enjoy throwing both! The weaker drilling one has a layout of 60x4.5x50. This ends up putting the pin in my ring finger. This one reminds me more of a urethane look. When comparing it to my Tank Rampage; I was able to be about 3 boards deeper on the lane. The second one I drilled had a layout of 60x4x30. This one really allows me to open up the lane a bit more; yet still have that smoothness provided from the Tank line. Comparing all the Microcell Polymer balls, I would have to say this one is by far my favorite!

Short oil beast

One of my favorite releases this season. A thrill core using the microcell cover. Sign me up! This will be my go-to ball on lighter oil patterns. It blends the pattern extremely well using the new pearl microcell. It's by no means snappy but very constable. I drilled it the exact same as my ripcord flight so it will give me a good pairing with my shock and flight. if you are struggling with short or light volume patterns do yourself a favor and GET THIS BALL! You are welcome

Desert Tank

The new Desert Tank is absolutely amazing. It bridges the gap between the tank blitz and covert tank. I drilled my Desert Tank 50-5 1/2-70. For me it is cleaner through the front part of the lane than the Blitz but a smoother motion downlane than the Covert Tank. This ball will be perfect on shorter oil patterns as well as medium patterns when you want to control the pattern.

very consistent cool design work very well on dry lanes

Bowled around 20 games with this ball so far and it only has typical wear and tear very resilient ball. Ball has plenty of hook potential and performs very well on dry dead lanes. the design is very unique and desirable almost looks like a dry wood finish. I have only been bowling for a short time and recently picked up the two hand style i saw drastic improvements in my game using this ball almost immediately bringing my average up about 10-20 pins. id also like to note the brown color helps hide dirt on the ball if thats something you care about. so far no real complaints will be using this ball in our local 9pin no tap league tomorrow and will recommend this ball to anyone who is looking for something to use on dry/light oiled lanes or house pattern

Question:

How is this compared to Fever Pitch?

5/24/2020 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer:

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.

Question:

similar to the covert tank ?

6/9/2020 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer:

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.
