I got the Trident Abyss in early March and my average shot up. Prior to using the the Abyss, my average was 170 because I couldn't string strikes. I would leave flat tens because the current balls in my arsenal just didn't store enough energy at the pins and would deflect if my angles were too big. But after using the ball I threw averages of 200 because this ball really does hook and plows through the pins. It is ridiculous how strong this ball is. This ball hooks more and drives harder through the pins than anything else in my current arsenal or even any of my friends stuff that they say hooks like a monster. Well I gotta say the true hook monster with a smooth motion is definitely the Trident Abyss.
Bought this ball back in December; I tested the demo first and loved it.
Had it drilled for me. At first, I could not figure this ball out. I wasn’t used to the way it hooked rolled nothing. So I put it in the bag and didn’t touch it for a month.
After the first of the year I got it out and started throwing it. Finally figured it out and this ball works great. Shot my 2nd 300 in February with it. The Abyss is my go to ball in my home house now. Absolutely love the way this balls moves!
There are so many similarities between this ball and my first car: Guzzles down oil, oozes sexiness, and keeps on driving!
To be honest, I bought this ball for NO OTHER reason than I teach Greek mythology and LOVE the thought of a Poseidon allusion adorning my ball rack. On the Kansas high school circuit, I don't play enough heavy oil to justify this ball. Superficial impulse buying aside, I haven't had this much fun with a toy since pogs were a thing!
It's the smoothest motion Motiv ball I've ever thrown, and one of the more forgiving. Out of the box, I threw straight strikes from three different boards in an experiment game. Two weeks later, I bowled my PR of 234. While it claims to be in Motiv's "heavy oil" line, I've found it to be a universal ball that plays well on a typical house pattern.
I hope my other balls took out a life insurance policy because they're about to go the way of the Dodo!
This ball will replace your biggest hooking ball in your bag. Period. It feels like an arrow stronger than the Jackals so you know it hooks!
Just wanted to say that this ball is awesome.. I have all the Jackal balls including the original...love all of them.. Beginning of bowling season I bought this ball and have loved it from the beginning.. Improved my game and on 1/30/19 I shot my career best 864 (276,288,300). Didn't have to move once and this ball was consistent. Just wanted to give my love for the Motiv brand.. Will be Motiv for life.. Thank you for making awesome balls.
