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.

    Tank Blitz

    This ball is the next stage of Microcell Polymer Technology created by MOTIV. The Tank Blitz was created following the overwhelming response and competitive success on the Covert Tank. It features the new Frixion + Microcell Polymer cover stock in combination with the Gear core, made famous by the Venom Shock. To complement the intent of Frixion+ cover stock, a low RG engine was needed and the Gear core 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.

    It will be a great fit in your bag on medium oil, but I have found it useful on both lower and higher volume patterns as well. 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 and has great continue through the pin deck.

    My Tank Blitz is laid out pin up (above and slightly right of my ring finger), the cg is lined up stacked below it (no extra hole). This ball has already found a place in my bag and has given me a shape on the lanes that I have never seen before. If you are looking for that go to ball that is stronger than urethane, but has a urethane shape backend reaction, but with way more continuation and unbelievable hitting power. Look no further, you've found it.

    Tank Blitz

    The Motiv Tank Blitz is the second ball to feature the Microcell Polymer cover, and comes wrapped around the Gear core that was used on the Venom Shock. Putting these two together creates what I think would be a great option for a benchmark ball. The Covert Tank was a go to when the lanes started to break down and I was looking for that urethane look, so I was really excited to drill up the Blitz.

    For me, the Blitz is about 5 boards stronger than both my Covert Tank and Supra. It reads the lanes sooner than both, but doesn’t give up in the backend. When compared to my current benchmark ball, the Venom Recoil, the Blitz is about 2 boards weaker. This would be a great ball for leagues and tournaments when you want to stay closer to the track when your other balls are too strong.

    Outstanding

    I tested this ball at a Test Drive event with some skepticism. Needless to say I was so impressed with my ability to really control this ball I bought one before leaving.

    You're going to need a good O-line for this one.

    The Tank Blitz is the newest in Microcell Polymer technology, combined with Frixion coverstock and the fan favorite Gear core from the Venom Shock.

    I have a deep love for the Venom Shock. I have 2. My love for the Venom line includes a Venom Shock Pearl, Venom Recoil, and previously a Venom Panic which was my first Motiv ball. I am more than happy to add this to that group.

    The Tank Blitz has a gigantic spot to fill in my bag. Previously I had just a Tank Rampage and a Covert Tank to cover my need to get up the lane. As many know when it comes to urethane, sometimes you can't quite turn that corner and need to ball up. My ball up to the Covert Tank sometimes was just too much ball. This ball has filled that slot, and powerfully.

    The Tank Blitz has become my go-to on league night; it is the first ball out of the bag. I've grown to love playing up the lane and starting my night off not needing to worry about hitting up on a urethane or staying flat behind a stronger ball.

    This past week, I showed up a bit late to league and had to bowl fresh out of the cold with no practice. I broke out the Tank Blitz and started with 18 in a row, leading to a 825 series. The ball is just that good and trustworthy for me. It has easily earned a spot into my league night 3-ball roller along with my Venom Recoil and my Rogue Assassin. The spot it filled was previously the Covert Tank.

    If you want a ball that can give you that early lane read, a soft reaction, and the ability to not skid like urethane may at times... Here it is! What are you waiting for?

    2 289 in a week and an average of 227 over 6 sets is a win in my opinion...This ball is hard to beat on house patterns and short sport shots. Big thumbs up way to go Motiv keep up the good work
