This ball is the newest introduction into the Trident line of MOTIV bowling balls. The MOTIV Trident Abyss features the combination of the Coercion HV3 cover stock and the Turbulent asymmetric core. This is the strongest ball ever made by MOTIV and is built to dominate in a flood of oil. Most importantly, it features the continuation through the pins that MOTIV balls are becoming known for.
It will be a great fit in your bag on heavy oil. With the merging of a high differential with a low RG, the Trident Abyss creates maximum track flare to make the turn in deep oil. The Trident Abyss will become that ball you can count on when you need the ball to dig on heavy volume patterns. When I was told how much this balls hooks, I was honestly worried that it would burn up. To my excited surprise, it never even thinks about it. I have never seen such a big ball continue through the pins anything like this special ball does.
My Trident Abyss is laid out pin down (below my bridge), the cg shifted to the right (no extra hole). This ball has already found a place in my bag and drives through the pins with easy from any angle. If you are looking for a ball that will hook on anything, provides control, does not sacrifice backend reaction, has continuation and awesome hitting power. Look no further, you've found it.

The new Trident Abyss is the biggest hooking ball that I have ever thrown. This ball is also the most continuous. Generally, when I have to move left, I have a problem getting balls with such strong cores back to the pocket with enough energy to continue enough. This ball solves that problem. If you need a ball to read the middle part of the lane, when nothing else will, this is the ball that will do it for you.

Motiv’s newest release is 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 for oil. The Turbulent weight block provides a lower RG with a high differential creating maximum track flare to help you make the turn in the oil. The Coercion HV3 (High Volume 3rd Generation) reactive cover has been modified to dig even harder in heavy oil. The Trident Abyss is an obvious fit for speed dominant and low rev bowlers looking for more hook. Competitive bowlers will love this very strong piece that provides control on heavy oil patterns.

Holy hook in a box, Batman! Honestly, when first opening the packaging I thought that a piece of the parking lot was shipped instead. Much to my delight, there was no error and it was the Trident Abyss. The all new Coercion HV3 coverstock (finished at 2000LSS) gives off a sense of pure hook in both sight and feel while the proven Turbulent core (2.49RG, .054Diff),the workhouse of the Trident line, is lurking beneath the surface. I could go into the typical details of how this heavy-oil ball rolls through the soup, but instead I will just say that this rock, the most hooking piece ever created for MOTIV’s lineup, will provide you with all the traction you need plus a bit to spare. Even with my low flare layout there is still no issue in getting this ball to read the lane and create its own friction to move towards the pocket. Make no mistake, this is a lot of ball on a typical house shot, so be prepared to dive deep even on the fresh. Prepare to dive into the Abyss!

I know this sounds backwards but my first true love of Motiv balls was the Trident Quest. I demolished the pins for the entire season last year. I liked the ball so much I decided to get the original Trident. My first day out at UBA with the OG Trident I shot 716. People tell me that the best time to buy a ball is when you are throwing well not when you are struggling. So along comes the Trident Abyss. Honestly I was waiting for the UPS man out in the street. I don't even think I stopped to appreciate the color of the ball. It doesn't have to be fruity to be beautiful. So in my backwards buying spree the Abyss turned out to be exactly what I expected a hook monster. My first experience was on a house shot and I just kept moving left. Normally I am a down and in player this ball helped me out of my comfort zone. I was able to keep moving left and not worry if it was going to comeback. The ball gave me mistake room. If I missed outside it came roaring back and If i tugged it held. I still love the Quest and the OG Trident but now I have that go to when I hit those drenched conditions. If you are not convinced go to YouTube and just watch some of the videos on this ball. Its more ball than I've ever had in my hand. The Motiv R&D team just keeps coming up with better ideas.
