Prepare to conquer the deep with the Trident Abyss.  Merging the Turbulent asymmetric core and a modified Coercion cover, this is the strongest ball ever made by MOTIV® and it is built to dominate in a flood of oil.  Beneath the surface of the Trident Abyss is the Turbulent weight block.  It provides a lower RG, high differential, and strong asymmetry. This combination creates maximum track flare to make the turn in deep oil.  The Coercion HV3 (High Volume 3rd Generation) reactive cover on the Trident Abyss has been modified to dig even harder in heavy oil.  The 2-tone gray solid shell is tuned with a 2000 Grit LSS finish to provide maximum traction. The Trident Abyss is an obvious fit for speed dominant and low rev bowlers looking for more hook.  Competitive bowlers will want to use it to cap off their MOTIV® arsenal with a very strong piece that provides control on heavy oil patterns.

    The heading says it all! This ball is perfect for the heavier volumes and tournament conditions. Even with an extremely aggressive surface, this ball is very clean through the fronts, has great mid-lane hook, and retains lots of energy to go through the pins! A must-have for bowlers of all styles and skill levels!

    This ball does 2 things HOOK AND STRIKE and it does both A LOT. If you want or need hook this is the ball to get. Not only will you move left with this ball it pounds the pocket and does not run out energy. I can’t say enough about this ball it is really just overall powerful ball.
    Just get this ball and #MOVELEFT of everyone else.

    Strongest Motiv Ball to date

    Let me start off by saying this ball is a monster. I’m a fairly high speed player with a rev rate that sits around 420. I picked one up due a tourney I had coming up that was throwing down a 47 foot pattern, this ball is everything I expected it to be and get ready to believe the hype. Perfect ball for your higher volume tourneys. But let me tell you that’s not all this ball offers. I also have tested it on several occasions on my house shot Tuesday nights and came away blown away with just how versatile the abyss is. Do yourself a favor and pick one of these new motiv monsters up, you won’t be disappointed. #MOTIVBOWLING

    Abyss Performs very well

    Dual angle layout 20x4x40. It was used on the PBA 60 Dick Weber 45 foot pattern. It performed great!!! Read the lane just how I wanted it too, projected all the right moves for me, and still had enough energy and power at the end of the lane to punish the pins.

    Stand left (or right)

    We drilled mine with a 30x5x30 layout. My pap is 4 3/4 over and 1/16 up.

    I've had the chance to throw this in a few tournaments now and all I can say is wow. This thing sure does hook! However what really impresses me the most about this ball is how clean it is through the fronts for such a "big" ball. I don't think I've ever been able to stay with the same ball that is as aggressive as the Abyss. I can start game one playing up the boards and am able to stay with the same ball and just move inside without it losing its energy. With the Abyss, say no more. I find this ball to not only be extremely versatile with layouts but with surface as well. If you want to shine it up and really watch it make a move on the backend you can do so as well. If I were to compare it to the Jackal Rising I would say that the Abyss is much cleaner and overall more aggressive. This ball is tacky!! MOTIV crushes it yet again with another phenomenal piece!
