You beat Gibs LOL
He gotta be quicker than that!! 🤣🤣🤣
@trollingewok Yea he does LOL
@MotivLou it’s cause I was watching your other video when this one popped up 🤷🏾♂️
Damn it man #2 AGAIN
Dat Purp!!! #2 forever LOL
@E Gibs 1 or 2 or 1000 I still appreciate you bro
@MotivLou anytime bro, if I can make it out to Vegas for Nationals or the military tournament I would love to roll a couple of games 👍🏾
@E Gibs Lets make it happen!!
Can’t wait for Hammers purple ball looks good lou . purple balls are the best lol
It’ll be interesting to see how it compares that’s forsure
What surface is the purple in this video?
It’s at 1000 just like the combat
I know the idea here is to highlight the Purple, but this video really showed how incredibly good the Combat Tank was and how wrong motiv was by making it a limited edition ball. It was already the same kind of super-urethane ball that creates great shape without going longer. If motiv gave this ball a little more time to shine, it would sell a TON
I agree 1000000000% I LOVED me some combat Tank
The purple looks the best to me but I like a little bit of hook. It looks very good and better than everyone’s favorite purple hammer. In the future it might be cool to see an original urethane cover with a huge core in it. Then you could really wreck havoc on the oil pattern in some pot games and high rollers. By only using urethane tanks and hooking them cost to coast. With the purple having a good conver and another having a Decent cover with a really strong core
That would be very interesting!!!
Sorry, a little off topic but when you looking to get the Trident Horizon videos out ?
It’s all good !! As soon as I get my Horizons I’ll start making videos!!
@MotivLou When would that be ?
@Matthew Priestley I’m hoping SOON!!
I thought the combat tank is a hybrid
Yes it’s a urethane hybrid. Solid urethane and Pearl urethane
Another excellent video! Purple Tank looks amazing.
I laughed when you said you are trying to learn how to “slow hook urethane.”
With my slow ball speed that is all I can do!
I know it is silly to say this, but I am looking for a versatile urethane ball.
By that I mean:
1. I can play it straight up the boards from the right (5,6,7) when there is enough oil.
2. If the outside line breaks down I can parallel left and still play straight up the lane (8,9,10) and know the ball will read and continue through the pins in that thick oil.
3. If the lane is super cliffed I can feed the ball to the right (11 to 7) and it will not die out, but rather grab and continue left through the pins in a smooth arc.
Purple Tank is so good!! “Slow hooking” is al relative you know!!
@MotivLou Lou, maybe you could take a quick look at my channel, video # 120.
It give you an idea of my slow hooking game. You think the Purple Tank would work for me?
@nordattack so I had the hot cell back in the day and the purple is a much stronger cover than the hot cell but the cell has a much stronger core
@MotivLou Cool, that is BIG intel for me. If Purple Tank has stronger cover than Hot Cell then that tells me A LOT. Thank you Lou!
Lou I need help I’m ready to buy a bowling ball and I need advice 3 balls phase 3 dessert tank or forge flare I cant dicide
I can’t ever not pick the Desert
Thoughts on the forge fire my dad said I cant get the dessert tank because ej takket was throwing it as a spare ball so my dad said I’m getting the forge fire. Thoughts?
@Always LND Ej throws at spares straight so on other shows he was throwing other balls besides the desert as a spare. Have him watch my latest tournament vlog that comes out today and tell me if the desert is a spare ball LOL
Dude it did it again… I’m gonna try unsubbing and resubbing. Maybe that’ll fix the stupid notifications
Yea YouTube has been having issues the past week with notifications:(
What surface do you have on your Purple Tank? Luv the video!!!
In this video it’s at 1000
Is that 1000 out of the box or a polished 1000?
@speedbuggy161 the purple doesn’t come polished out the box it’s 1000 only
What is the pretty orange and yellow ball on the rack ?
That’s the Pink/Yellow Thrill ! It’s in my last video before this one!
What’s up with all the cops?
That’s Casio security, they hang out in the bowling alley! Good friends of mine!
Hey Lou I’m looking to get a new ball. I was thinking the jackel ghost I’ve watched all your videos on it but idk it it’ll fit me. My favorite balls at the moment are the rogue blade and forge fire have any suggestions?? Or suggest the ghost?
So both of those balls are on the angular side so it looks like you need a smoother option. I would be in agreement with a Ghost forsure! If you want some more in depth arsenal building where I can watch how you bowl and give you more feedback definitely consider joining my Patreon. The link to it is in the description of this video! Hope to see you there!
I saw the Arsenal from E.J. by the Doubles and he had the tank Blitz in his scale higher than the V.I.P?
WHAT DO YOU MEAN
Blitz will handle more oil.
The blitz is a much stronger ball than the vip
Hey Lou,I’m looking for a ball for when the lanes start to transition I’m currently using the Hammer Web tour . Which ball would you recommend the purple tank or the venom shock. Any input would would be appreciated,I enjoy watching your channel and your videos!
The venom Shock 100% the urethane balls are much better suited for the fresh oil conditions! Join my Patreon linked in the description and we can get WAY more in-depth into arsenal building!
Thanks for your help,I’ll be getting a venom shock this weekend. I left 14 ten pins on Tuesday nights league,hopefully this will help me out . I’m also still thinking about adding the desert tank or the purple tank also as I’m only using the Hammer web tour as of now since I donated all my other balls with the counterweight holes .
I forget something to say:
I never had a Trainer, the Boss of my Center said to me, a straight ball, second arrow and you had a 170 average. The first 3, 4, years a play house Balls and then i got my first ball, a Black hammer with finger Tipps. And we never know wath oil Pattern we had.
There where only 2 oil Pattern we had, a house shot and a league shot, ready.
No metter how long oil, how much oil, nothing.
And in my beginning years we had no oil machine.
We had a oil pump and there where the lanes so different.
And in my beginning years i start to play cold as ice, no stretching for practice and the ball make a hook like 20 boards and with every shot the hook goes smaller and smaller and you dont no why and then you start thinking and the game was over or the day was over.
And then i start stretching bevor the games and my games where better and better.
And this was my beginning in bowling.
If I was you Alex I would look foR A certified coach in your area!!
After 41 years of bowling its to late for a Trainer, i had all learnd by myself, and with 4 300 games a 205 average over the 41 years i think its not so bad. 2 bavarian
Double Titels, 1 bavarian Single Titels and a 10 Times qualifing for Germany Titels play.
