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”.
