A new released bowling ball that I am soon going to get but looking off of the reviews, I think I am going to like it.
Layout - 50 x 5 x 40
Test Pattern - 2018 US Open Pattern #4 (43')
The shelf and on-lane appeal of the Trident Horizon is amazing. On the lanes, I compared mine along with the original Forge and the Forge Fire due to its location on the ball chart. My first impression was everything I imagined it to be – a slightly cleaner piece than the Forge upfront, but with a more continuous motion downlane similar to the Forge Fire. As the lanes began to transition, I can see how the asymmetric core works its magic. When the Forge Fire became a little too quick or was a little too clean, the Trident Horizon provided enough traction soon enough while still creating that controllable motion downlane. As a fan of every ball that has been on a similar spot on the ball chart, I can guarantee I will be drilling multiples of this in the future.
While some may not be fans of asymmetric pieces or not have as much knowledge for its use, the Trident Horizon will make you a believer. With the amount of success I’ve had with the original Forge, I absolutely was excited for what was to follow. The Trident Horizon is definitely a piece that I can utilize on various patterns from start to finish – on the fresh and as the lanes continue to transition. There is something special about this Hybrid coverstock, the various surface changes that can be done with this while still being able to perform well is amazing.
I have thrown Track equipment for 20 plus years, until I took several years off. I was recommended the Trident Horizon, so I took the leap. To say the least I have enjoyed this ball and I am looking forward to throwing the new VIP and the Venom Shock.
Coverstock: MXC Coercion Hybrid Reactive
Box Finish: 4000 Grit LSS
Layout: 45 x 4 ½ x 70
In terms of angularity Trident Horizon has more than its angular predecessors Trident Nemesis and Trident Quest despite them both possessing glassier OOB finishes, however in terms of coverstock MXC Coercion Hybrid is more responsive to friction at the end of the pattern.
MXC Coercion Hybrid is what makes Trident Horizon clean up front, cleaner that both Jackal Legacy and Forge Flare which possess MXC Coercion. It can be compared to Fatal Venom from a read standpoint, however it reads earlier to that of Fatal Venom.
MXC Coercion Hybrid will offer you a combination of midlane traction and plenty of continuation at the back end, very useful in the event you decide to cover a bit of lane.
MXC Coercion Hybrid is still MXC Coercion Hybrid meaning when Trident Horizon encounters too much friction you may want to ball down, however there is always the option of glassing it or simply moving your feet in the opposite direction of the hand you throw with.
MXC Coercion Hybrid is what society has been waiting for in terms of clearing the heads without the natural grab that MXC Coercion possesses, even in Hybrid form Trident Horizon has a lot of muscle and traction in the oil. Although MXC Coercion Hybrid is in the came family as Jackal Legacy and Forge Flare, is substantially cleaner and quicker than both Legacy and Flare. I have confidence in having Legacy and Flare paired with Horizon for a terrific trio for fresher oil conditions, in terms of surface I prefer mine at box although I did put a bit of hi-gloss on it to see what my reaction would be and it evened out the asymmetrical reaction.
I encourage you to not look over this Horizon instead try this Trident Horizon.
Your game will Thank you.

I love my new Trident Horizon. I’m a down and in bowler but decided to drill this one pin down and play it out a little. We drilled it 30 minutes before league and I shot 750 with it straight out of the box. It transitions smooth through the heads and brings a lot of power on the back end. I would definitely recommend this ball to everyone.
