The Desert Tank is the 3rd Motiv ball that features the amazing Microcell Polymer technology. Its pearl cover makes it a bit weaker overall than the Covert Tank, and gives it the most urethane like shape. This ball is great for me on short patterns or lighter volume patterns and being left handed, gives me a great option to stay left longer and keep my angles in front of me. I definitely recommend this ball for tournament bowlers to have in their bag for short patterns, and for league bowlers if they want to stay outside and avoid the puddle of oil in the middle of the lane. Go pick up this winner today!
Layout: 60 x 4 1/2 x 40
The MOTIV Desert Tank is an amazing piece of equipment. It fits right between the Covert Tank and the Tank Blitz in my bag. The pearl microcell cover allows this ball to excel on drier conditions, and with surface adjustments can tackle a lot more!
I drilled mine 4.5 x 45 and I am able to play straight up the lane, in the track area and even move in a little and swing it some!
If you bowl in a center with a drier house shot, this ball will be great for you!
The Desert Tank is the latest release from Motiv that utilizes a pearl version of the Microcell Polymer (MCP) coverstock. The Covert Tank has been a favorite of mine on a wide variety of lane patterns. The Desert Tank allows me to keep my angles a little straighter on shorter patterns compared to the Covert and Blitz. My Desert Tank is drilled with my go to layout with the pin above ring finger and cg straight down. 40x4 1/2x60 to be exact. In league I can play to the right close to the friction most of the night as the MCP cover doesn’t see transition quite as quick as a resin ball and for an older guy like me, that’s a great thing to have with the amount of friction we see in league.
I have drilled two of these and enjoy throwing both! The weaker drilling one has a layout of 60x4.5x50. 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!
