MOTIV Tag Cannon Video
on: June 19, 2017, 07:45:58 AM

Description: The Tag Cannon is the second release in the “Tag” line. Again, using the Halogen Core, which was also previously used in the Graffiti Tag, original Tribal and Tribal Fire. The Tag Cannon however uses the all-new Agility SFP (Skid-Flip Pearl) Reactive Coverstock. With the neon yellow/blue coverstock and neon orange logo, this ball provides a lot of shelf appeal and performance at a lower price point.

Reaction: The intention of the Tag Cannon is for late in blocks and beat up patterns or when they just flat out hook. So far, the Tag Cannon provides plenty of length for my game on even the driest of patterns. With plenty of length and a strong shape down lane, you also get the distinguished MOTIV continuation through the pins. The Tag Cannon is just a little more even than the Graffiti Tag, so if you felt the Graffiti Tag was unpredictable at times, maybe too long or too strong down lane, you will find this release a better option.

Comparisons: The Tag Cannon is being released just after the Freestyle Rush, so you have two lower performance balls that are worthy in comparison. The Freestyle Rush is noticeably weaker and is slower when exiting the pattern. I am going to prefer the Tag Cannon in most instances as for me it is not too much stronger overall, but just gets around the corner better and has more continuation as you will clearly see in the video. The Octane Carbon is a little stronger and has a little faster response to friction than the Tag Cannon. The Tag Cannon is the perfect fit in between the Freestyle Rush and Octane Carbon though. There is NO overlap, all three of these pieces can REALLY round out the bottom of your lineup, especially if you tend to need less ball due to your style or lane conditions.

Summary: I do not tend to throw lower-end/weaker pieces often, for the fact that I just prefer and have more success with balls in higher performance categories. However, the Tag series has been really good for me and my style and has become the exception to that.

This is my most recent written review (Tank Rampage)...if the following information is not useful, be HONEST, if so how would you change it?

Description: The Tank Rampage goes back to using the Gear Core found in the original Tank, although it has been slightly modified (to the Gear V2). The burgundy cover is the ALL-NEW Alchemy Urethane.

Reaction:  The Tank Rampage allows me to play the proper part of the lane on short and or low volume patterns. This is probably the earliest ball I have ever thrown. All of the hook is in the front part of and the response to friction is very slow, as urethane should be. The ball gets up the hill very good and continues through the pins very well. I have never been a huge fan of urethane but the Tank Rampage will see more lane time than probably all other urethane balls I have thrown before, combined. It is very important to keep the surface up on urethane, but I will also say that I have notice this urethane cover does not shine with lane oil as much as I have seen urethane balls in the past.

Comparisons:  The Tank Rampage is the soonest Tank to date, the Rebel Tank is noticeably cleaner and provides a little more shape down lane, also just not quite as strong. The original Tank just does not get started as soon as the Tank Rampage. Once again, I have struggled with urethane in the past, but this one get through the pins very well and has provided exceptional carry thus far.

Summary:  Those looking for that true urethane look from MOTIV, it is here and it is very good. Urethane is becoming a staple in a tournament bag. Because so many people are starting to use it, it sometimes forces you to throw one as well. Although this is not a ball everyone needs, it is also a ball that will not disappoint; it will do very well and serve its purpose.

Yes, the Tank Rampage surface can easily be adjusted. I actually added 1000 to mine.
