Locked and Loaded

One of the longest running MOTIV® product lines, the Tanks are the premiere bowling balls for control on the harshest conditions. The latest addition to this legendary line is the MOTIV® Purple Tank™.

The Tank™ series changed forever with the introduction of Microcell Polymer technology. While Microcell Polymer (MCP) is now recognized as the solution for the ball motion gap between reactive resin and urethane, MCP does not replace urethane completely. With that in mind, MOTIV® has been in pursuit of a truly special urethane cover stock that provides adequate traction on modern lane surfaces conditioned with the high volume, high viscosity oil patterns competitive bowlers see so regularly.

Now, MOTIV® is unveiling the brand new Purple Solid Urethane cover stock. It builds on the technology of Microcell Polymer, but it eliminates the oil absorption that causes MCP covers to shape down lane. This new cover allows the Purple Tank™ to display incredible control along with the aggressive traction seen from previous MCP balls like the Tank™ Blitz. It is ready to dominate when true urethane is needed in battle.

To boost the control factor, the Flux™ core is employed on the Purple Tank™ to lower the track flare potential. Previously used in the Desert Tank™, the Flux™ core is the proven solution for wet/dry conditions when the bowler needs to use shallow angles.

When to Use

Urethane bowling balls are now a staple for use on difficult oil patterns, short oil sport conditions, and for rev dominant bowlers seeking control when resin is just too much. The Purple Tank™ is prepared for battle on all these conditions because it displays outstanding traction in the mid-lane with the control down-lane that only urethane can provide.
