Retired 10/10/2022

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.

    I have been bowling for 28 years and been rolling Motiv for the last 3-4 years and tonight finally with this ball I shot my first 800. I have loved Motiv since I had the Carbon and won’t ever leave them. Thank you Motiv for an amazing product

    Balling Up

    Was able to get my hands on a Trident Odyssey recently.
    Finally got it laid out and took it to the test against my OG Pride.
    This is the ball up I needed.
    Really smooth in the mid lane with an early read and was able to find the pocket from multiple boards.
    This ball will easily have me raising my average in no time!

    Gift From The Gods!

    There are so many positives to this ball. Strong motion with a smooth transition off of the back of patterns. Great length, lacks no power with maximum control. This is that magic ball you're looking for. I bought 2 more just to have them new when I wanna do something else with them or replace my main one. Thank you 1000 times, I've shot more 300s and 800s with this ball than I can count.

    Not the ball I expected...

    This is the 4th Motiv ball I have purchased and was shocked at the performance. This is the lowest rating I have given a Motiv product. I had this drilled pin up and similar to my other balls expecting a strong smooth roll. Based on the details I expected this to be stronger than my Venom Shock but a touch weaker than my Pride. I found that the ball wasn't reading the lane early at all and was reacting more like a pearl (all backend). To its credit, it hits the pins hard. I just wasn't getting the performance from the ball that I expected based on the cover. Drilled differently I know I could find a spot for it in my 6 ball arsenal. It isn't a bad ball, just didn't react like I had expected.

    Amazing Ball

    Have been really loving this ball! Have it drilled the same as my Trident Quest and it does not disappoint. Great ball for me to start out League night. Would totally recommend getting one if you do not already have one.
