Tank Blitz

Following the overwhelming response and competitive success of the Covert Tank™, MOTIV® is proud to present the next stage in microcell polymer technology, the Tank™ Blitz.

Featuring new Frixion™+ Microcell Polymer cover stock, the Tank™ Blitz is earlier and smoother than the Covert Tank™.  To create this powerful new Frixion™+ cover, MOTIV® engineers boosted the oil absorption rate of the microcell polymer to handle higher concentrations of oil.

To complement the intent of Frixion™+ cover stock, a low RG engine was needed in the Tank™ Blitz and the Gear™ core from the Venom™ Shock was the clear choice. With a lower differential, the Tank Blitz is capable of low flare layouts and produces a stronger, more traditional urethane shape, but with far better continuation.  

The solid red Tank Blitz with its 2000 Grit LSS finish provides a new shape for competitive bowlers and also gives average bowlers a very early and smooth option for medium oil conditions.

    House Shot Extraordinaire

    I am lost for words when trying to describe this ball. I drilled it like my favorite Venom Shock (4x90) and have the pin right above my ring finger. The motion on this ball is incredibly smooth and early. The Tank Blitz reads the lane, even if you miss inside, and still doesn't quit! The Microcell polymer technology is absolutely insane! When throwing this ball I know I have a smooth and reliable reaction. This is probably the best medium oil ball I've ever thrown. If you're looking for a similar shape to urethane that's a bit stronger and doesn't push oil down the lane, this is the ball for you! Everyone I know that has drilled one loves it, especially on the house shot!

    Tank Blitz

    The Motiv Tank Blitz is easily my favorite Motiv ball of all time. The updated Frixion+ Microcell Polymer cover has an increased oil absorption rate compared to the original Covert Tank. This mixed with the addition of the Gear core makes this ball pretty unbeatable on medium lanes with crisp backends (85% of house shots anyone?). I have my Blitz and Covert drilled identical and the difference is about 5-6 boards overall, with the Blitz being about a foot sooner. This newest Tank does need considerably more oil in the front to keep it from “rolling out” or “hook set.” But when you have the oil, it continues like no other ball I have come across. Do yourself a favor and try the Tank Blitz. I assure you it is well worth the mid-range price tag!

    Better than urethane

    Just when I thought the Microcell polymer technology couldn't get better, Motiv proved me wrong. The Blitz is a better version of any solid urethane on the market by far. It is a little earlier than the "purple" but much more continuous through the deck. The ball just gets better the more lane shine it takes. The amount of flare lines this ball generates for me is intense. Highly recommend this ball for anyone looking to add urethane to their arsenal, especially since the Microcell won't get you blackballed at league like true urethane does!

    Hit them with the BLITZ

    The all new Tank Bllitz comes with the Gear core and a newer version of the Frixion + Microcell polymer. It comes with a 2,000 LSS finish. This ball reads the lanes early. I can't say anything bad about this ball. When other balls are carrying down lane a little too long and not carrying, this ball reads the lane in the right part of the lane and rolls into the pocket allowing for better carry. This ball has a quick read in the middle of the lane, but once the initial move is made, it stays very continuous and smooth the rest of the way. This ball rarely over reacts, but will if you are getting too much dry. This is one of my favorites right now in the lineup.

    Better than urethane!

    I threw this ball for the first time this week and I have never been more impressed by a ball. Motiv hit a home run and they are at the top of the industry with the development of the Microcell polymer cover stock. The Tank Blitz has an enhanced version of the Frixion cover from the Covert Tank creating a stronger version. The Frixion+ has a very smooth shape without an over response to friction. Throughout league night my moves were minimal and the carry is awesome. The way it reads the mid lane makes it very predictable and easy to control. Let me make this clear, this ball is not urethane! It absorbs oil at a faster rate so it does not create carry down like traditional urethane, but it has a similar shape which is a definite plus over urethane. As the night went on, I never lost continuation or hitting power as I moved deeper on the lane. Bottom line, this ball is a must have. Whether you bowl league or tournaments, it offers a motion that is different from anything on the market.
