Trident Abyss - Ball review, step left!
« on: October 09, 2018, 12:14:09 PM »
Motivís newest release is 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 for oil.  The Turbulent weight block provides a lower RG with a high differential creating maximum track flare to help you make the turn in the oil.  The Coercion HV3 (High Volume 3rd Generation) reactive cover has been modified to dig even harder in heavy oil.  The Trident Abyss is an obvious fit for speed dominant and low rev bowlers looking for more hook.  Competitive bowlers will love this very strong piece that provides control on heavy oil patterns.

I believe this is his first video review where he didn't start by stating "I'm so excited", like he was trying to keep from wetting his pants.
He did not let me down when he ended , "go to your pro shop and pick one up", which I believe is the ending in every video he has made.
I don't blame Steve, I blame the ball companies for continuing to let their staffers produce such useless information.  However, there must be a lot of people who buy balls based on these reviews, otherwise we would see from the staffers reviews that we wish they were.

I finally took my Abyss out of the box and used it for a game this weekend. I bought it when it first came out, but have not bowled anywhere I thought would have enough oil so it never left the box. The house I was going to Saturday usually has pretty good volume so I decided it would be a good time to give it a roll.

So, without further delay; yep, this thing hooks. It doesn't make lanes obsolete by being too narrow, but it does have a good amount of movement. I was about 4 boards left of where I would throw the Venom Shock with my feet to get to the pocket using the same break point at the end of the pattern. It has good carry, therefore energy, for such a strong ball(at least until it becomes DOA).

Honestly, I remember the VG Nano Solid hooking more than this ball, but I could be having memory issues in my old age.

I don't see a lot of difference in the number of boards this ball covers than the Jackal Ghost.

I do like the way the Abyss rolls. I had good success with the original Trident and hated the second one(Quest). This is a ball I can use if there is good volume.

I used it for one game, then put it away as it was burning up by the end of the first game.


It was in box finish, which has zero meaning with Motiv as every ball seems to be different, even from the same batch. It did have that dull look that seemed to absorb light that some of their sanded finish balls have. If I had to guess it was about 1500 or so.

These are just my opinions, your results may vary.
