“This thing is so fun to throw!  I feel like it lets me do whatever I want to do on fresh”, stated EJ Tackett about the new Trident™ Horizon.   Utilizing a hybrid edition of Coercion™ MXC cover technology, the Trident™ Horizon exudes strength, power, and incredible versatility. 

A solid version of Coercion™ MXC powers the impressive Forge™ Flare.  “It is so strong, that some high rev rate players are forced to use fiercely steep angles and sometimes throw it over the front of the lane to use it even on fresh”, said PBA® Tour Rep Brett Spangler.  “It just makes sense to merge this phenomenal shell with a higher RG core and less aggressive finish.”  And that is precisely the design focus behind the Trident Horizon.

Utilizing new Coercion™ MXC Hybrid Reactive cover technology, the Trident™ Horizon digs in the oil yet still manages to continue down lane to a degree that confounds many bowlers.  Tuned with a 4000 Grit LSS finish, it showcases more clearly the down lane motion potential of the Coercion™ MXC technology. 

To maximize continuation, the Trident™ Horizon utilizes the versatile asymmetric Sidewinder™ core.  Featuring a higher RG and lower intermediate differential, it clears the front of the lane much easier than the more powerful solid balls for heavier oil volumes and retains energy to provide ferocious continuation.

    Instant Favorite in my Bag - Trident Horizon

    The Trident Horizon fits perfectly in the medium/heavy oil line on Motiv's ball chart! This ball features the Sidewinder asymmetric core which has a higher RG and lower intermediate differential which always this ball to clear the fronts more easily and the new Coercion MXC Hybrid Reactive cover technology really allows this ball to create more backend motion! This was a favorite the first time I threw it and you will want one of these in your tournament bag!

    Trident Horizon

    This is a great ball, one definitely worth while to get. I threw mine all the way up into the 3rd game on a house shot and was very impressed. Can't wait to take it to state. Y'all did such an amazing job on this ball.

    Get ready for some serious angularity

    When getting this Horizon in yours hands you won’t be disappointed one bit. If you are looking for down lane angularity the new Motiv Bowling Trident Horizon is the ball you want in your hand. The asymmetric sidewinder core paired with the hybrid coercion MXC cover just turns this baby sideways off the friction giving you that power your son used to from every Motiv release. The Horizon is going to be such a versatile piece on a variety of shots for a variety of bowling styles. To top it off it’s such a beautiful looking ball as well. Perfect for the shooters who use the color variations to read their rotation. Yet another great addition to the ball chart by the best bowling company in bowling. Motiv keeps on raising the bar with every single release.

    Popping performance and colors? The Trident Horizon certainly grabs attention on the lanes with both its color scheme and outstanding performance on medium-heavy to medium conditions. The new Coercion MXC Hybrid Reactive coverstock, finished at 4000-grit LSS, wrapped around the asymmetric Sidewinder core (2.52 RG, .049 Differential, .013 Intermediate Differential), creates a versatile ball reaction that has shown me it can excel on straighter, fresher lines as well as deeper, burnt-track lines.

    Based upon the strength of the cover, I laid my Horizon out to push a but further down the lane and retain more energy for a more pronounced backend motion since the house I typically bowl in has a medium volume shot. Even with this ‘weaker’ layout, this ball has plenty of teeth to bite through the oil and create the traction needed to throw it on the fresh. Getting through the heads is easy thanks to the Sidewinder core, the Coercion MXC coverstock digs to find midlane friction, and these two forces combined unleash a quick, powerful backend motion that creates forgiveness at the spot which, in turn, opens up the pocket to throw pins for exceptional carry potential. In any given night of practice or league I have started as far right as laydown-10/cross-8 and have continued through laydown-30/cross-22. This versatility has given me stability within my arsenal which has allowed me to stay above my competitors when the transition happens. By being able to both create friction and then get left and use the friction, the Horizon has allowed me to make consistent moves and stay more comfortable as the night progressed compared to others who have to switch their equipment as early as frame six of the block. While the coverstock is in the same family as the Jackal Legacy and the Forge Flare, this ball is significantly cleaner and quicker therefore you can have confidence having either of those balls along with the Horizon to create a strong one-two punch for those fresher oil conditions.

    I truly believe the Trident Horizon is one of the best medium-heavy balls on the market today, both in reaction and in looks (to be honest, blue and pink has always scored for me). The versatility of the angles you can create with a single layout is impressive in-and-of itself, let alone what could be accomplished with surface changes as well, which makes this a special release that could have a home on the MOTIV ball chart for some time.

    Trident Horizon Review


    The Trident is the latest release in the MOTIV Bowling product line. This Hybrid monster will be the first ball out of your bag at any event and will dominate the lanes in that event. The new Trident Horizon brings together the Hybrid Coercion MXC cover stock, the solid version of this cover stock can be found on the Forge Flare, and we wrap it around the sidewinder core. This wow combination gives the bowlers an option that can dig through the oil but can still give you retainable energy down lane that can clear the fronts much easier than any other bowling ball in that category. IF you want something that is going to be the first ball out of your bag and can throw it on anything then get the Trident Horizon at your local pro shop today.

    The Trident Horizon this the first ball in an awfully long time that it’s the first ball out of my bag at anything I bowl. First time throwing it, it gave me the wow reaction that I haven’t seen in some time. I feel I can throw this piece on any condition and have success and I have had some mild success in the events that I have bowled since this ball has been in my bag. All types of bowlers need to have this bowling ball in their bag because while it is a big piece, I feel that it can be thrown on anything and it won’t give the pocket away and people don’t have to get out of their comfort zone in order to throw it especially with the finish the Horizon comes out of the box with.

    Likes: Versatile; Strong down lane motion; continuation through the pins.
    Dislikes: None

    I recommend this bowling ball for all types of bowlers.
