The Trident™ Odyssey is the epic new addition to the popular Trident™ line.   Featuring an aggressive cover and the return of a past favorite core, the Trident™ Odyssey creates maximum hook without giving away down lane motion. Designed for control in medium-heavy to heavy oil conditions, the Trident Odyssey is a necessary addition to the bag of any bowlers encountering higher volumes of oil. 

The Trident™ Odyssey features the most recent tweak to the Coercion™ coverstock system, with the introduction of Coercion™ FYS (Full Yield Solid).  The uniqueness of the Coercion™ FYS cover is that it creates vast amounts of hook for the bowler without reading so early that it loses down lane continuation.

The Trident Odyssey marks the return of the Turbulent™ core used in the original Trident™.  For the purpose of this ball, a lower rg core performed the best.  The Trident™ Odyssey is designed for control in heavier concentrations in oil, which is ideal for the low rg and high differential of the asymmetrical Turbulent™ core. 

When to Use

Speed Dominant:  Bowlers with exceptional ball speed or lower rev rates are normally identified as speed dominant.  For these players, the Trident Odyssey will serve as a fantastic benchmark ball.  The control the Odyssey offers is second to none and the strength of the cover should allow this to be a speed dominant player’s first ball out of the bag. 

Balanced Bowlers:  For bowlers whose rev-rate and ball speed match, the Trident Odyssey should be used on heavier volumes of oil and longer oil patterns at the beginning of competition.  Balanced bowlers will see an easy progression from the Trident Odyssey to the Pride, then the Venom Shock as illustrated on the Motiv ball guide.  For balanced bowlers, the Pride is a benchmark ball; the Trident Odyssey has a stronger version of the Pride coverstock with a more aggressive core.  The Motiv product line is designed for these easy transitions from one ball to the next and the Trident Odyssey is no exception.

Rev Dominant:  Bowlers with exceptionally low speed or high rev rates will likely seldom need a ball stronger than the Trident Odyssey.  Rev dominant players can use the Trident Odyssey on fresh, high volume, low friction, and long oil patterns without any concern that their ball may skid past the breakpoint.  The benefit of using the Trident Odyssey first out of the bag for rev dominant players is that its ability to continue shaping down lane allows for these players to stay in their fresh oil ball longer and use it from multiple angles.

    A special one!

    What to say about the all new Trident Odyssey.
    Very seldom is a ball an instant favorite. The all new Trident Odyssey is definitely one of the favorites!
    I drilled mine 70X4.5X25. I find this ball to be extremely unique and a great comparison to the Alpha Jackal.
    First off, for an Asymmetrical it is relatively clean. The Turbulent core allows the ball to greatly rev up in the front part of the lane while the Coercion™ FYS Solid Reactive cover allows the ball to store its energy and have plenty of downlane reaction without the ball “burning” up in the front part of the lane. I compared this ball to the Alpha Jackal as they both have the same coverstock but different cores. The Alpha jackal for myself a lefty with a 375-400 rev rate, Pap is 3 7/8, 7/8 up, the Alpha would be over under at times. The Odyssey has taken away that and been a huge staple in my arsenal. I highly recommend this ball to any style bowler. Left handed or right handed the Odyssey will not disappoint!

    The Trident Odyssey is AWESOME!

    I am happy to see the return of the Turbulent core used in the original Trident along with a strong cover which gives the ball smooth but powerful finish off the pin deck. As I threw it in league the corners would jump off it seems before the ball got there in fear. When the ball hit the pocket the sound of the strike had people asking me about the Trident Odyssey. You really should get one it's a great bowling ball. Always Motivated ❌ ❌ ❌

    Trident Odyssey - The Turbulent core is back!

    The Trident Odyssey is a medium/heavy oil ball that features the low RG high differential asymmetrical weight blocks called Turbulent which was found in the original Trident. The core is surrounded by the new Coercion FYS (Full Yield Solid) which creates vast amounts of hook for the bowler without reading so early that it loses down lane continuation. This ball is great combating sport patterns and those "cliffed" house shots that have lots of oil in the middle and lots of friction to the outside. This is a can't miss ball that you have to have in your bag, pick one up today!

    Trident Odyssey

    The Trident Odyssey was a perfect fit for what I was missing in my bowling bag. It is a great strong solid asym that I can throw on the fresh and move way left late in the day. The Odyssey gives me superior control of my ball motion while still having tons of energy for pin carry.

    An Epic Journey Continues

    Layout
    50 x 5” x 40

    The Trident Odyssey is the newest member of the medium-heavy oil MOTIV family and carries its progenitor’s name well. The new Coercion FYS coverstock (finished at 2000 grit LSS) has been formulated to provide traction in oil without early-lane burnout commonly prominent in aggressive equipment. To help power this ball’s motion, the Turbulent core (2.49 RG, .054 Diff, .017 Int. Diff) has been triumphantly brought back, creating the right amount of flare to compliment the cover’s strength.

    I wanted to lay this ball out to be successful in my typical medium-heavy (towards the medium side) house shot without being too much, too early. The 5” pin gives me more loping through the heads while the 50-degree drill angle helps the core find its stride earlier. What I now have in my hand is an excellent fresh-oil ball to start the day that can get me through a couple of moves until the lanes open up enough for me to perfectly step down to the Iron Forge. The best word to describe the motion would be ‘glide.’ Pushing through the fresh heads, the midlane read is a controllable action that sets up a smooth, driving motion off of the friction that continues though the pins. I have yet to see this ball just jump if it finds dry unexpectedly, which is fantastic to keep you out of bad backend angles that create interesting pin-leave designs. The Odyssey is at its best when you can keep your angles tighter as opening the lane up too steeply will force it to bleed to much energy to turn the corner and hit the pocket at an optimal angle; those situations are where the Iron Forge and Rip Cord Velocity step in. So far I have not been disappointed in my early block games and how the ball helps set up the track for a strong lane, and ball, transition. The Trident Odyssey is a great way to continue the legacy of the Trident line.
