The Tank Blitz is the second entry into the MOTIV Microcell Polymer coverstock line, following the Covert Tank. The Tank Blitz is a phenomenal ball for when there's a decent amount of oil up front and you need an ultra smooth and predictable ball. It's like a super strong urethane ball, except it actually hooks a bunch on the backend and doesn't carry down the oil and destroy the oil pattern like urethanes do. Best of both worlds! It's definitely a reaction shape that you don't see on the market today, and the unique look can give you an advantage over others. Definitely check it out.

Motiv, please make this ball forever or at least treat it like the Venom Shock. I can't recommend this ball highly enough. It's one of the best balls on the market, highly versatile, amazing carry, and different than anything else being made. House shot killer, but a great tournament ball too. It'll be my benchmark ball for as long as they're being made.
This Tank Blitz is amazing. It is about an arrow stronger than the Covert Tank for me. I used my normal pin above the bridge layout that I always try on a bowling ball. It blends patterns so well that it isn’t even fair to not have one in the bag. This ball reads the lane fairly early but does not quit downlane. It provides a very predictable shape, and will be the first ball out of my bag on every pattern.
The layout I used on the Tank Blitz is 60x3x40. This bowling ball is something special! The hype is REAL!! I drilled a shorter pin to PAP to enhance the smoothness of this ball. This ball will be going everywhere with me. Comparing this ball to the Covert Tank, the Blitz is overall a stronger ball. It is earlier and more continuous to its counterpart. The Tank Blitz is a very versatile piece that can be drilled to favor urethane reaction or drilled to roll just like most reactive balls. You do NOT want to miss out on this ball!
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.
