Probably summer release as all the companies put out their dry lane stuff for summer leagues, now that I think about it.

April announcement after Ripcord Flight.  Out in May as next release.  Between the Covert Tank and Tank Blitz.  As, I bowl in one house that is light oil with poor lane maintenance less head oil with Kegel Icon poor length wise taper I will be considering the Desert Tank.

Looked like EJ was using it at the WSOB. Thought it was the Jackal till I saw the Tank logo. The gold looks good

I get more excited for the new dry options than anything else these days. Lots of good options for oil across the board... it's a lot trickier for the burn. Definitely keeping an eye on this one.
