Prepare to conquer the deep with 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 to dominate in a flood of oil.  Beneath the surface of the Trident Abyss is the Turbulent weight block.  It provides a lower RG, high differential, and strong asymmetry. This combination creates maximum track flare to make the turn in deep oil.  The Coercion HV3 (High Volume 3rd Generation) reactive cover on the Trident Abyss has been modified to dig even harder in heavy oil.  The 2-tone gray solid shell is tuned with a 2000 Grit LSS finish to provide maximum traction. The Trident Abyss is an obvious fit for speed dominant and low rev bowlers looking for more hook.  Competitive bowlers will want to use it to cap off their MOTIV® arsenal with a very strong piece that provides control on heavy oil patterns.

    I love this ball!!

    I bought this ball pre-covid, so it sat for 2 years.
    I returned to bowling this season, and have consistently bowled my best scores ever.

    Not for me.

    I am not sure I ever had enough oil for this ball or the release to use it. I feel like it lost energy for me too soon, but I have a high rotation.

    I think this ball could be something I use at a higher surface, but it rolled too early for me.

    Great ball by Motiv. Ball is very smooth and strong.
    To me, this ball is very versatile and played an important role in my bag. Works great on house and sport shots. When I need to ball to dig into the heavier oil, this ball gets it done. It is very predictable and a ball you should have in your arsenal.

    As soon as I threw this ball I knew I had something special. The continuous move at the transition is amazing and it does not stop. As the lanes break down I can move inside with no trouble at all. This ball made a believer out of me about The Motiv products and I have decided to go all in. I now have four Motive balls I use and I am looking forward to the Nemesis. It all started with this ball. Want another to try a different drill set up. Awesome!!
