The Trident Quest is a HUGE step forward for the Motiv brand! The all new Hexion™ Reactive coverstock is a fast response skid-flip shell that easily slips through the front of the lane to deliver an incredibly violent backend snap. This is something we have never seen before with Motiv and it fills a huge spot in the product line. I originally drilled up the pin up layout when I first got the ball to see how good this backend motion was, and boy I was suprised. The ball gets some traction in the first half of the lanes and still had the violent backend I was expecting with pins flying all over the place. I am able to use this ball all 3 games on a low-volume house shot, and transitioned with the lanes all the way until I was touching the ball return. The second layout, pin down, is still fairly fresh for me but gives me even more traction in the front of the lanes when they are slick without giving up any of the backend motion. I am so happy with this ball and I'm expecting these to come in handy with a few upcoming tournaments on sport conditions. The Quest is without a doubt one of my all-time favorites and I can't wait to see what else is going to revealed on our "Quest" at Motiv.

Skid Flip Ball Reaction:
For those of you looking for a skid flip reaction out of a high performance core...Then the Trident Quest is the ball for you. The Hexion Pearl cover creates just the right amount of skid in the front part of the lane. Then the core begins to take over and creates a perfect amount of backend reaction. This has been my go to ball since its release. The core is very driller friendly and can be drilled to give you a wide variety of ball motion. My 35 x 5 ½ x 75 layout allows me to begin the set left of most of my competition and as they begin to dry out I can seamlessly change to my 70 x 5 ½ x 40 layout as this layout clears the fronts with easy and creates a huge move at the break point. This is the best Asymmetric Pearl in the market today.
