The Motiv Trident is Motiv's strongest bowling ball to date. This ball can handle heavy oil while providing a high hook potential. The Coercion HVH (High Volume Hybrid) reactive coverstock, Turbulent asymmetric weight block, and 3000 grit LSS finish combine to provide the traction and revs needed at the mid-lane and a strong transition into a powerful down lane motion. Arm yourself with Motiv's ultimate weapon, the Trident!
So you're looking for that heavy oil ball something that reads the lane early and can make the turn down lane. If you are like me this is the wish of all bowlers but always seems to be that one thing we can't achieve. The Motiv Trident is that piece. For me the ability to have a ball in my bag that will provide the ability to read the lane early and not stop on the back end is usually unreachable. Most everything in my bag will read the lane when I add surface but always tends to not hit with much force leaving flat 10's most shots. The Trident provides me with the ability to play a more comfortable line to the pocket even on the longest of patterns. The Turbulent asymmetric core enables the ball to retain more energy and produce powerful continuation. Coercion HVH (High Volume Hybrid) cover stock is also new technology. It gives the Trident superb mid-lane read and an incredibly strong transition down lane.
At a recent event on the 52ft Badger pattern the Trident was still quite strong but the continuation was certainly the key. The ability to provide some angle to the pocket is key in getting the ten pin out. For those of you whose A game is deep inside the Trident will allow you to get deep inside and still recover to carry the corners. This ball is a must have and fits well in the Heavy oil spot in your arsenal. The performance of this ball speaks for itself! Get a Trident you will thank yourself for it!

Those who had the pleasure of utilizing the original Jackal and Jackal Carnage and have felt the void of this loss should have no problem filling that void. After throwing the Trident for several weeks now I can tell you with confidence that the Trident has not only surpassed the bar set by the Jackals, it has destroyed it entirely. Although the Trident may not respond as soon and clean as the Jackal and Jackal Carnage, the overall ball motion, energy retention, and continuation more than make up for these subtle differences. If the advancement of bowling technology has taught us anything, versatility reigns supreme in consistent success. One of the ways to provide bowling ball versatility is the use of energy retention and continuation, especially in an asymmetric piece. When asymmetric piece begins seeing carry down or slight change in the early parts of the lane, carry begins to become questionable as its energy has been spend and has nothing when it reaches the pins. With energy retention and continuation, that question disappears.
The Trident is Motiv's newest high performance bowling ball. It is a hybrid between the Jackal and the Jackal Carnage. This ball is great for medium to heavy oil and is a good replacement if you had any of the Jackals. I find this Trident to be much more continuous than the Jackal Carnage and a little more controllable than the original Jackal. This ball is very strong in the midlane and can handle a large amount of oil with the right ball surface. This ball can handle more oil than the Revolt Havoc but is not as early, so it can be used for a longer period of time even when the front oil starts to go away. The Trident is also very good on fresh sport patterns or heavier oil house patterns where the revolts may not be enough ball due to its symmetrical core.
If I hadn't paid so much for this ball I would have given up on it by now, after six games of well below my average of 180.
This ball is amazing I love it
