Motiv Bowling has introduced the New Motiv Trident. I drilled the Trident just like i drill all my
asymmetrical balls (55 x 4 1/2 x 65). For this release i went with a pin down layout. I have used this layout on a lot of previous balls like the Motiv Jackal and Motiv Jackal Carnage. I love this layout because it gives me a early roll but since its asymmetrical it doesn't sacrificing down-lane hook for my style. The Motiv Trident has all New Coercion HVH (High Volume Hybrid) coverstock, which raps around the all New Turbulent Core. The box finish is a 3000 grit LSS (Laser Scan Sanded). The Trident has RG of 2.49 with .054 differential. The Trident is one of my favorite balls to date. I have used the Trident on various amounts of different patterns, and is one of my most versatile balls. 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 balls is best fitted for heaver, fresher conditions as a starter piece that you can easily tradition down to a cleaner, quicker cover.

Harness the power of the God of the Sea!
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.

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!

New High Performance
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.

Love this ball!
I love this ball!! For the person that reviews this ball earlier, I suggest that that you may not be bowling on a good amount of oil. Find oil and the ball will be perfect.

Great ball with good control
I started bowling about 2 years ago. I started off with a storm hyroad. I decided to get a new ball and was told to give the trident a try. After throwing the ball a few times I started to notice I had a lot more control and the ball was easy to perdict 4 months later the ball has improved my handicap by 50 pins.
