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.

    Be ready to dominate the desert lane conditions.

    What an incredible addition to the tank series, which already has some really impressive pieces. The desert tank raises the bar and takes it to a new level. I’ve put this piece on older wood lanes and it was awesome, shorter patterns it was great and of course the scorched desert conditions it dominated. I’ve fallen in love with the new Motiv addition so quickly, I can’t put it down. This would be a perfect add for any bowler who shoots on wood lanes which break down quickly or those tourney bowlers who need something for later in the blocks. Motiv continues to raise the bar in the bowling industry with every release.

    Desert Tank - Light oil ball with the motion you are expecting!

    My first impression of the Desert Tank is here is a light oil ball with the motion we all are looking for! Most times light oil balls get down the lane easily however the reactive resin cover really takes over when it finds friction.  This skid/flip action isn’t always what we are looking for or need when going to the light oil part of the ball chart.  The Desert Tank has the low differential Flux core with the Frixion Pearl Microcell Polymer cover giving you the motion of urethane with the continuation of reactive resin.  This ball fits perfectly for me when a light oil ball reaction is needed and something that will be in my bag!
