Additional product information:

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.

    Trident Odyssey

    The Trident Odyssey is the newest ball added to the Trident line.   It had a strong cover and brings back the popular Turbulent core. The Trident Odyssey creates a lot of hook without giving away down lane motion. Designed to control the pocket in medium-heavy oil conditions, the Trident Odyssey is a great piece to add to anyone look for that controllable high end piece. This piece is great when a Jackal Ghost isn’t enough ball in the front of the lane and need something smoother for the back part of the lane.

    Another great addition

    I drilled my Trident Odyssey 40x5x30 and have been extremely impressed with the motion on this ball. It definitely reminds me of my Alpha Jackal, something smooth and really consistent hook wise. The Odyssey is definitely a zone stronger than my Pride. It hooks quite a bit but it never burns up! Definitely going to be a staple in the bag if I need something consistent and strong!

    Trident Odyssey!

    What to say about the all new Trident Odyssey. Very seldom is a ball an instant favorite. The all new Trident Odyssey is definitely one of the favorites! I drilled mine 70X4.5X25. I find this ball to be extremely unique and a great comparison to the Alpha Jackal. First off, for an Asymmetrical it is relatively clean. The Turbulent core allows the ball to greatly rev up in the front part of the lane while the Coercion™ FYS Solid Reactive cover allows the ball to store its energy and have plenty of downlane reaction without the ball “burning” up in the front part of the lane. I compared this ball to the Alpha Jackal as they both have the same coverstock but different cores. The Alpha jackal for myself a lefty with a 375-400 rev rate, Pap is 3 7/8, 7/8 up, the Alpha would be over under at times. The Odyssey has taken away that and been a huge staple in my arsenal. I highly recommend this ball to any style bowler. Left handed or right handed the Odyssey will not disappoint!
