Review:

The new urethane Combat Tank (Limited Edition) features the hybrid Alchemy cover and the Recon weight block, which has never been used before to drive a MOTIV urethane ball. The Alchemy cover gives easier length and greater continuation without sacrificing that smooth urethane ball motion. What that means for the bowler is that the Combat Tank can be used in situations where the fresh oil in the heads starts to diminish and regular urethane starts to turn up earlier than expected. Additionally, the Recon core assists with the length needed to accomplish this on either house or sport shot conditions. I found myself easily able to throw this ball on 33’ PBA Cheetah and turn around the next day to throw it on a typical house shot. This ball sits perfect in my bag with my other tanks and gives me a deadly option on a wide variety of lane conditions. This ball is a must have is you’re looking for a versatile urethane ball to place in your bag. However, this ball is Limited Edition, so don’t wait to get your hands on one!

This ball is incredible. I love being able to throw a ball that is urethane, but still fairly hard off the spot, and the Combat Tank is exactly that.

Compared to the Rampage, the Combat is significantly cleaner with a much sharper motion off of the back of the pattern. With both of these in my bag, I know that I'll be able to strike with at least one of them anytime urethane looks good on the lanes.

I find that this ball excels on lighter house shots and shorter sport patterns.

My only complaint about this ball is the fact that it's a limited run, so I'd highly recommend getting one as soon as humanly possible!
