Motiv Trident Nemesis Bowling Ball Features:

The Trident Nemesis is the fourth installment in the Trident line for Motiv. The Nemesis uses the new asymmetrical Sidewinder core shape, which provides a higher RG, lower total differential, and lower intermediate differential compared to the Turbulent core used in the previous Trident releases. The pairing of this core design and the new Infusion HV Pearl Reactive coverstock creates a ball that goes long and is very responsive to the dry. Previous versions of the Infusion cover were found on the Forge FireRipcord, and Supra.

Let’s get right to it…the new Trident Nemesis is undoubtedly the most angular asymmetric ball ever created by MOTIV!   It proudly features our latest Infusion HV (High Volume) Pearl Reactive cover technology and new Sidewinder asymmetric weight block design. Intended for medium-heavy oil conditions, the Trident Nemesis has impressive backend motion and powerful continuation.

The new Sidewinder weight block expands the MOTIV spec range within the asymmetric category making the Trident Nemesis a very attractive ball because of the impending balance hole rule change coming in 2020.  Asymmetry will give ball drillers more influence over ball motion.  The Sidewinder design is featured in every Trident Nemesis from 16 down to 12 pounds.

The Infusion HV Pearl Reactive cover used on this Trident is at the forefront of innovation.  With the introduction of Infusion Pearl Reactive cover on the Supra, we saw more angle than ever from a MOTIV ball.  However, the Supra was intended for lighter oil conditions, so the task was to tune an already great cover to handle more oil without sacrificing down lane motion.  After extensive testing, Infusion HV was developed. This cover creates more traction in the oil, yet still creates all the angle a bowler could need.

The Trident Nemesis is impressive on and off the lanes.  The gorgeous Teal Pearl and Black Pearl cover has a polished 5500 Grit LSP finish and utilizes a ball pattern with bold blocks of color. This look is complemented with Silver Pearl and Aqua Pearl NeoMark graphics.

    The layout I used on the new Trident Nemesis is 70-4 ½-30. This ball is a great step down from the Alpha Jackal when it starts to read the lane too soon. This ball is clean through the front with plenty of angle downlane to get the corners out. It definitely has the most angle downlane of any asymmetrical ball I have ever thrown. I feel like I will be throwing this ball a lot in league this season and in tournaments when I need to ball down from the Alpha Jackal.

    The layout I used on the Trident Nemesis is 70x4x20. This bowling ball allows me to really open up my angles. The first night of league I shot 300 and 805 with it! This is a very clean and angular asymmetric ball. Comparing this ball to others, my first comparison is to the Supra. For me, I threw both at the same surface and the Nemesis is about 7 boards stronger than the Supra. My second comparison is to the Alpha Jackal. The Alpha Jackal hooked more overall for me and read the mid-lane a lot sooner. The Trident Nemesis was cleaner and a lot more angular. I believe the Trident Nemesis would be a good ball for when the Alpha Jackal starts to burn up or hook to much in a certain spot on the lane and the Supra is too weak. When seeing the name Trident on the ball, don’t think about the other Tridents. This is a completely different motion.

    Finally the ball I have been waiting for. There has been a spot in my bag reserved for the day when MOTIV released a big asym pearl. I have not been disappointed and neither will you. The Nemesis stacks up against any competitors Asym pearl offerings. I did have to hit mine with a 4k pad to crack the shine a bit, but once I did the ball got even stronger and more responsive down lane. This ball is so good that I just drilled a 2nd this time pin under ring instead of pin over ring like the 1st. I can’t wait to roll it in league . Order yours today.

    Motiv is getting closer to a high-end Asymmetrical skid flip reaction with the Trident Nemesis. The new sidewinder core appears to be versatile and responds well to different layouts. First ball drilled at 63-4-75 has a long hook zone with good continuation I enjoy this shape but the pattern has to be transitioned just right to get the corners out consistently. Second ball is 65-4 3/4-30 creates a much more traditional “skid flip” reaction. Personally, the cover was just a bit too clean for my liking, it gave me over under on a handful Med to Med/Hvy patterns and couldn’t count on the ball responding to the friction consistently. A light scuff with a used 3000 pad cured most of the issues. All in all, the Trident Nemesis is a fantastic looking ball that is a step in the right direction of a skid flip assym ball from Motiv. Trident Nemesis is a bit pickier on lane conditions compared to the RipCord or Supra due to the fact that they seem to react to the friction more consistently.

    The Trident Nemesis!

    Before this ball was released well before any of the staffers knew it was coming we were asked “what ball are we missing” From 70/80% of us staffers we said we are missing a BIG Asym core with that supra cover. Motiv has got close to what this ball shapes like a few times but just not good enough in the past. This ball changes all of that. This ball is awesome! It’s exactly what the staffers really wanted to see. We wanted that clean cover ball that could really change direction down the lane that would pair well with the supra. Brett and the Motiv team knew they had this in their back pocket all along but the staffers had no clue. This ball is stupid good. Everyone should own this ball. Its a MUST HAVE for any arsenal you have created with your Motiv products. I’ve shot 700+ with this ball every week I’ve been able to throw it. It is just as clean as the supra since they share the same cover but it hooks in a different part of the lane due to its core. Now that I’m done gushing about this ball let me give you a quick idea of how I layed this ball out. I went with my normal 5″ pin to pap layout but I modified the other #’s. I moved the mass to 40 degree and the VAL to 20 degree. My goal there was creating the easy length I was already expecting but using a shorted MB angle to make sure the ball would read the lane early enough that it wouldn’t miss the breakpoint. Just trust me this ball is stupid good! Check it out on my Instagram page!

    The Trident Nemesis is Motiv’s newest asymmetrical pearl ball. The Trident Nemesis is fast. Very fast. When you need something as angular as the Supra but are on significantly more volume, that’s where this ball thrives. The Trident Nemesis also does very well with surface change. I prefer mine with a little bit of surface/4000 grit. When comparing it to others balls in our lineup, the Trident Nemesis is longer, faster, and a touch weaker overall compared to the Forge Fire. Compared to the Golden Jackal, the Trident Nemesis gets further down lane making it better for playing steeper angles. If you are looking for a piece to get further down lane and play the friction, the Trident Nemesis would be a great grab for your arsenal.
