I have a tank blitz and I just started bowling a couple of months ago. And it is an enjoyable way to learn how to throw a bowling ball.
Tank Blitz is so good !!!
I love my Tank Blitz!
Me too !! It’s so good !!
Best comment ever !
I find that these microcell balls work really well at South Point. Do you agree? If so which one gives you the best look?
In the Plaza the blitz is the best while the Desert is king in the center!
I have the tank blitz. That ball reads friction and move left off the spot. I am looking into that forge flare.
Can’t go wrong with a Forge Flare! It’s one of the best balls I have thrown in a good while lol
My arsenal is jackle alpha forge fire and a verdic pearl i just ordered the forge flare
Nice !!! You’re gonna love it ! 🙂
I’m a lefty down and in bowler who needs a ball I can move right with if I have to but will still come back on the back end I have low to medium revs any thoughts on a layout I should go with
@Johanna Brown Depends on the rev rate if the rev rate is lower I would say something like 4×20 and if the rev rate is higher I would say like 5×35
Is Forge Flare and Venum Shock a good 1-2
The Shock can be a great follow up to the Flare!
hangman0004 yes they are, I use my flare for the 1st game then the venom shock or the new venom, since I have 2 shocks, I’ve pull the Shock out of the bag and put the venom in w/the blitz & Flare, those 3 I carry for the men’s league so far every series has been over 7, good luck
grats motive man would love each of these balls man but im using my supra. might grab another motiv next year but i just got a hammer web mb as well so i have to learn that ball and see where it fits
Learning where all the balls fit is a HUGE part of the game! Good luck to you!
I have the Blitz Tank, and I love it. I will be getting the Forge Flare this coming Monday. I have a low tilt (13%), 300 rev rate with 15mph ball speed, any suggestions on drilling patterns.
I would recommend something with a strong pin to pap and a higher VAL angle. Like 3.5×60
Sounds good, thank you.
Have you try polish on the Tank Blitz? What reaction will it have?
@Richard Santine I have but personally I don’t love polish to begin with. I think what makes the blitz so special is how early it is. Adding polish just made the reaction longer. Made the ball less special IMO
Congrats Ricky on becoming motiv member
How’s your take on the forge flare against one of the most iconic Motiv’s (OG Venom Shock)?
Flare will be much stronger overall but still create shape down lane !
My TankBiltz is totally awesome!
Mine too!! It’s one of my favorite balls !’
Congrats on signing with the best ball company Ricky!
Agreed that’s it’s the best company!!
It’s league night, and I can’t wait till I get my Forge Flare tonite. With my speed and revs rate, would a 3000 grit be better overall to help blend out the lanes?
3000 is a great surface prep to start it at !
I bowled a 556 with the Flare, I forgot my spare ball and fell short of 600. (201,160,195)
@Richard Santine spare ball is HUGE
Believe me, I know.. lol I lost time and got into a rush mode to get out of door. By the time, I got there I’d remember it. Lesson learned. We did win all games though.
@Richard Santine that’s what counts!
Dang Man Ricky looked great throwing the Flare for the 1st time, I love the Blitz
He seemed to be super impressed with both of them!
Damn that Ricky guys form is amazing, i like effortless power type releases.
He does generate an amazing amount of power!!
How can you Play Bowling today, is there no lockdown by you?
Where I live the bowling alleys are open
Congrats Ricky! Another great one Lou!
Curious what were the layouts between the 2 balls ??
Tank Blitz is drilled 40×4.5×20 and Flare is 50x5x20
i got a tank blitz last weeki loved i a left a bowl a 767out the box there way can get one is left on new balls of motiv
I have a Jackal Legacy which of these would you go with to follow after?
@MotivLou that’s what I was thinking. Especially with THS. Thanks Lou!
