Motiv Purple Tank
The development process of this ball has taken years and was a pet project throughout that time. Now, three and a half years later, Motiv has a urethane that is a game changer, a urethane worth releasing because nobody else has this.
Before you ask, no, this is not Microcell. The MCP technology was a product of the development journey to the Purple Tank, but the finished product is not Microcell. While the core is the same as the Desert Tank, the Purple is a vastly different ball. The urethane shell makes the Purple earlier, slower, and more forward down lane than it’s gold cousin.
Due to the nature of this incredibly strong urethane shell and the weak Flux core, layout changes result in massive differences in ball motion. A pin down layout has very little differential and will not flare much. With this, you’ll see a cleaner, slower, weaker shape that should remind you of “old school urethane.” A pin up layout, with a higher drilled differential, will be stronger, faster, and more total hook.
The box surface on the Purple Tank is (at the shiniest) comes out of the box at 1000 grit. The Purple Tank has a great ability to hold the factory surface for long periods of time. However, a huge benefit of the Purple is that the cover is far more tunable than an ordinary urethane. Tom Smallwood used a shiny purple later in blocks because his ball hooks so much. Shinier purples will be an incredible trick for rev dominant bowlers and people bowling on high friction surfaces.
