This Tank is unlike any before! The Carbide Tank is a Tour Edition release, armored in the strongest Microcell Polymer (MCP) cover stock to date.
Following the proven success of the pearl Blue Tank, MOTIV set out to develop an even stronger solid MCP cover that was much closer to reactive resin than traditional urethane. Frixion M4 is the upgrade deployed on the solid gray Carbide Tank. This strong Tour Edition ball is built to provide a very smooth motion on the high viscosity oils used in the competitive bowling environment today.
To help resist lane shine, the 1000-grit Carbide Tank shell also features technology to boost the resilience of the dull sanded cover profile. This enables the solid gray Frixion M4 shell to hold the box finish longer.
The Carbide Tank is driven by the proven symmetric Gear core, which is utilized in the world-renowned Venom Shock. This core provides a low RG and a moderate differential. The low RG makes the Carbide Tank rev up faster so it digs early in the oil. The moderate differential reduces track flare for a more controlled energy release to prevent “roll out”.
