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.
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.
