Motiv Desert Tank Bowling Ball Features:

The Desert Tank is the newest addition to the Motiv arsenal in the war against drier lane conditions. This ball features an advancement in their Microcell Polymer formulation, making this ball a pearlized version of the Frixion+ cover used on the Tank Blitz. The Desert Tank pairs this new shell with the symmetrical Flux core shape from the Thrill bowling balls. This core has a very high RG and a very low differential, helping the Desert Tank get down the lane and blend out its movement off the dry. It comes out of the box at a 2000 grit sanded finish, which helps keep it from sliding too far down the lane.

The pearl Desert Tank is yet another incredible ball featuring new Microcell Polymer technology, which provides the motion of urethane with the continuation of reactive resin.

Featuring a pearl version of the Frixon+ Microcell Polymer cover stock used on the Tank Blitz, the Desert Tank maneuvers powerfully in lighter oil volumes.  And to help provide an even smoother motion than the Covert Tank, the low differential Flux core design has been deployed to tame track flare.

The cover, core, and the 2000 Grit LSS finish all come together on the Desert Tank to provide a weapon that is dialed in for a controllable motion on high friction lane conditions.  Speed-dominant bowlers will really appreciate the performance attributes of this release.

  1. David Hooper Jr

    The Desert Tank is absolutely amazing. I drilled mine 50-5 ½-70. For me the Desert Tank bridges the gap between the Tank Blitz and Covert Tank. The Desert Tank is cleaner through the fronts than the Blitz but smoother downlane than the Covert Tank. This ball will be great on shorter patterns along with medium patterns when you want to need a controllable motion. This ball will definitely be in my bag at all times.

    The Desert Tank definitely rolls like traditional urethane. I really need to tighten up my angles and slow my roll considerably for this ball to be effective. When the lane gets tighter and I need to keep the ball in front of me and not go crazy sideways of off the friction down lane the Desert Tank is right choice. I would highly recommend this ball to anyone looking for a cleaner more consistent urethane motion. I have more area with the Tank Blitz and Covert Tank however those 2 balls create more back end reaction. The Desert Tank fills a gap in the micro cell aresenal

    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

    I have drilled two of these and enjoy throwing both! The weaker drilling one has a layout of 60×4.5×50. 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!

    Desert tank review

    This is Motiv’s newest Microcell polymer ball. It features the strongest cover of the three microcell polymer Tanks, but with a smaller core that allows this ball to get further down lane than the Blitz, and shape more like a traditional urethane ball than the Covert Tank. The desert tank is best suited for shorter patterns when urethane is in play, but what is unique about this ball is the fact you can move in and shape it without the loss in carry you’ll see from traditional urethane.

    I have personally found this ball to be quite versatile on house patterns. I can play up the track area at the beginning of the night and migrate inside without carry issues once the transition starts happening. The cover + core combination on the Desert Tank allows to play a variety of shots without issue.

    If you are looking for a traditional urethane motion with more versatility, the Desert Tank will suit your needs. It fills a gap in my arsenal to where I don’t have to use traditional urethane, and can still strike with ease.
