I bought this ball because I was a fan of the Covert Tank but I wanted to experiment with a MCP ball that had more strength. I have been able to use this ball in a couple different leagues and it really allows me to control the pocket and blend the wet/dry conditions a bit. This ball has been a pleasant surprise and now that the Carbide Tank has been announced I may have to scoop that up too!
The Blue Tank is a must-have for tournament bowlers and is also great for a urethane substitute on recreational patterns. The Blue Tank gives similar motion to more continuous urethanes in the market, but it is a little cleaner and absorbs some oil, meaning it will not carry down a lane nearly as quickly as traditional urethane. I personally carry multiple Blue Tanks everywhere!
This ball has been a staple in my bag since I first purchased it. It allows me to play straighter down the right side of the lane with a faster ball speed, and is capable of coming back through the pins from further left with speed adjustments. It even pulls double duty as my spare ball. If you want bang for your buck, this ball is what you're looking for.
As an owner of both the Desert and Purple Tanks, I was eager to get the Blue Tank. I feel that it's a much stronger Desert Tank (which is what I had hoped for). It definitely has that classic Tank feel. I only used it 4 games thus far but averaged 25 over with it (plus got my second highest game with it). Always nice to have that happen so quickly with a new ball. Really excited to continue to throw this one.
Visually, it's a fantastic looking ball. The nice blue color looks great and the black logo really pops.
TLDR - If you are a fan of the Tank line and their classic shapes, you will like the Blue Tank.
I've thrown every Microcell release that Motiv has released, and the Blue Tank is my favorite by far. It gets the easy length of the Desert, with the aggressive continuation of the Blitz.
For a two-handed bowler, Microcell is a godsend. It truly is the perfect cover stock that sits right in between the control of a urethane, with the power of a reactive.
Blue Tank is in my bag to stay.
