Layout on the carbide tank for me is at 55 x 3 3/8 x 15. 3/8 up. The continuation on the carbide tank is out of this world! I don’t see a lot ten pins with it this far, it’s mostly the solid 8 or 9 pin (who can complain about that). The versatility of this ball for bowlers that can adjust their speed and hand position almost make this ball unfair. You can easily speed up and take hand out to get straighter. Subsequently you can easily slow down and add some hand into the Tank Carbide and play into the oil without sacrificing carry. The Tank Carbide should be a no brainer for anyone if they are looking to fill out an arsenal.
The next MCP cover is here and its on the new Carbide Tank. The Frixion M4 Solid MCP is the strongest microcell cover Motiv has release and really helps this ball shine. The Gear core is perfect for this cover too as its a low RG & moderate diff helping control the flare and energy release on the back part of the lane creating awesome pin carry. This medium heavy oil ball is smooth and continuous on the back giving you control and power at the pins. You will want this in both your league and tournament bag!

The Newest Tank in the line up is the Carbide Tank. The strongest Microcell Polymer paired with the timeless Gear core. This ball is phenomenal, able to use Microcell on heavier oil without sacrificing hitting power and having a smooth and readable motion. Hands down a winner in any bag. With the Carbide Tank I can play any zone on the lane and still have the same round smooth motion. Even with the lanes going through transition it does not matter to this tank. This ball will be another staple in my bag paired with the Venom Shock “Unbeatable combination.”
The Carbide Tank is potentially Motiv's strongest ball to date. It picks up earlier than most pieces, even in oil. It is very smooth off the spot and overall extremely strong. I would most closely compare this to the Forge Flare when thinking of other Motiv balls, but this is a unique ball that I do not believe truly compares to any product out there from any manufacturer.
Watched a Motiv staff member bowl a 300 during a tournament a couple weeks ago. The ball was extremely consistent down the lane under medium to heavy oil conditions. I have pre-ordered this ball and can't wait to use it. I hold around a 180 avg. Will update after.
