Let’s get right to it…the new Trident™ Nemesis is undoubtedly the most angular asymmetric ball ever created by MOTIV®!   It proudly features our latest Infusion™ HV (High Volume) Pearl Reactive cover technology and new Sidewinder™ asymmetric weight block design. Intended for medium-heavy oil conditions, the Trident Nemesis has impressive backend motion and powerful continuation.

The new Sidewinder™ weight block expands the MOTIV® spec range within the asymmetric category making the Trident Nemesis a very attractive ball because of the impending balance hole rule change coming in 2020.  Asymmetry will give ball drillers more influence over ball motion.  The Sidewinder™ design is featured in every Trident™ Nemesis from 16 down to 12 pounds.

The Infusion™ HV Pearl Reactive cover used on this Trident™ is at the forefront of innovation.  With the introduction of Infusion™ Pearl Reactive cover on the Supra™, we saw more angle than ever from a MOTIV® ball.  However, the Supra™ was intended for lighter oil conditions, so the task was to tune an already great cover to handle more oil without sacrificing down lane motion.  After extensive testing, Infusion™ HV was developed. This cover creates more traction in the oil, yet still creates all the angle a bowler could need. 

The Trident Nemesis is impressive on and off the lanes.  The gorgeous Teal Pearl and Black Pearl cover has a polished 5500 Grit LSP finish and utilizes a ball pattern with bold blocks of color. This look is complemented with Silver Pearl and Aqua Pearl NeoMark™ graphics.

    Trident Nemesis

    I can't say enough good things about this ball! The Nemesis features the same Infusion Pearl Reactive cover stock as the Supra, with an all new Sidewinder core. This ball is particularly helpful to me when I start seeing early friction. At that point, having the ability to go to a ball with a pearl cover helps me get through the fronts, but still have mid-lane read and continuation down lane through the pins.

    The Nemesis has also been my go to ball in league because I can immediately get into the oil and throw it to the dry. Since drilling it up, my league sets have been 761, 749, 741, and 755, raising my average almost 10 pins over that time. I highly recommend this ball to anyone who has trouble with early friction, but still wants reaction down lane!

    Hard hitter

    I am a no thumber and have had a hard time finding a ball that hits the pocket the way that fits me best. My average over the last few years has been around 165 and a very inconsistent one at that. This is the first ball that I have added that has given me great consistency so far. Outside of my first two games trying to adjust to the ball I have not had a single game less than a 203, the first two games were also over my average, a 173 & 179. Now I have only had this ball for a little over a week but so far I absolutely love this ball.

    Amazing!!! Should be a 6 star!

    The Trident Nemesis!

    Before this ball was released well before any of the staffers knew it was coming we were asked "what ball are we missing" From 70/80% of us staffers we said we are missing a BIG Asym core with that Supra cover. Motiv has got close to what this ball shapes like a few times but just not good enough in the past. This ball changes all of that. This ball is awesome! It's exactly what the staffers really wanted to see. We wanted that clean cover ball that could really change direction down the lane that would pair well with the supra. Brett and the Motiv team knew they had this in their back pocket all along but the staffers had no clue. This ball is stupid good. Everyone should own this ball. It's a MUST HAVE for any arsenal you have created with your Motiv products. I've shot 700+ with this ball every week I've been able to throw it. It is just as clean as the Supra since they share the same cover but it hooks in a different part of the lane due to its core. Now that I'm done gushing about this ball let me give you a quick idea of how I layed this ball out. I went with my normal 5" pin to pap layout but I modified the other #'s. I moved the mass to 40 degree and the VAL to 20 degree. My goal there was creating the easy length I was already expecting but using a shorted MB angle to make sure the ball would read the lane early enough that it wouldn't miss the breakpoint. Just trust me this ball is stupid good! Check it out on my Instagram page!

    Must have

    The Nemesis is a must have for your arsenal. It's smooth off your hand and holds its line worth a power punch through the pins. The transition on the lane is remarkable. This is an amazing ball

    Exactly what they said

    This ball is exactly what they said it is. You can create a lot of different angles with this ball, it's smooth down lane and continues the pins very well.
