The brightly colored Motiv Tag Cannon stands out on the lanes in a good way. This ball was designed for light oil conditions to provide length with a quick response on the backend as well as great continuation. This design is achieved by combining Motiv's Halogen core with their Agility Ski-Flip Pearl (SFP) Reactive coverstock. This pairing retains energy and then releases it at the back of the lane. This ball busts through the pins like a cannon ball. Due to the energy retention on higher friction patterns this ball will be attractive to many bowlers including tournament bowlers.
As a rev dominate bowler OOB the Tag can get down lane and snap blasting through the pins, wasn't expecting this ball to end up being my go to on light and med oil lane conditions. This ball was at least 3-4 boards stronger than what I expected this ball to be and leans more towards medium lane conditions for me. Compared to the VSP the tag cannon is way more aggressive and looks 100% better than the VSP. lll
This ball is amazing. I already have a Venom Shock which is my benchmark ball. I needed a ball that could get through the heads as they started to break down and my Shock would end up hooking too soon. I would keep moving left and keep it in the pocket but there comes a point where you can't keep moving left. I would finally get to the point where I was so far left I couldn't get it back to the pocket. SO i needed something to get through the broken down heads and stay in the pocket if I moved back to the right where I started with the Shock. Enter the Tag Cannon. I used it for the first time today. I pulled it out in my second game and shot a 225. Which is a very good score for me and unusual for me in the second game which is almost always my worst game of the set. It did exactly what I was looking for it to do. It had no problems getting through the heads. It broke late and strong and hit the pins like a mac truck. My Motiv Arsenal is taking shape and the Shock and Tag Cannon are the perfect 1-2 punch for me. I decided to give it a little stronger layout then I was originally thinking it is layed out 45x4 1/2x30 . It is what I wanted and more. I am always amazed by the continuation of Motiv balls and by the the pin action and carry I get from them. I am so glad I was convinced to give them a try. I still like Hammer as I always have but Motiv is number 1 for me now. If you do not have a motiv ball I recommend picking one up. I would start with the Venom Shock because I think it is a great benchmark. But he tag Cannon is a must have for your bag as well
For me, the Tag Cannon blows the original Tag out of the water, It has so much better overall ball motion and can handle a little more oil as well. Not only does the Cannon pop on the shelf, it pops on the lanes as well. This ball goes through the pins so well and has great continuation. The original Tag did not come with me for many lane conditions but I can see the Cannon coming with me to many more tournaments and leagues especially those with lower or shorter oil conditions. This ball is a little stronger than the Freestyle Rush but a little weaker than the Octane Carbon so it is a perfect compliment between the two.
Is this ball good for a stroker style bowler10/4/2017 - By roger
This all can work for a stroker style player. This ball had a moderate hook on lighter oil but with a stroker style it may be a little less hook but still give you a nice backend move.10/6/2017 - By Bowling.Com Staff
