This ball has done nothing but blow me away since I threw it the first time. MOTIV has done it again with the Jackal line creating yet another strong solid asym that maintains loads of traction through the front and mids and an insane amount of energy downlane. Of course with this being the smoother Coercion HV3 from the Trident Abyss and original Forge, it is going to be smoother than the Ghost, but for being such a stronger piece it is insanely versatile. I love my Alpha to Ghost pair. The two complement each other so perfectly. This is a ball anyone can throw and I truly believe that!
What can I say about this ball. This ball is by far one of the best balls I have ever thrown. This ball never stops moving, beautiful arcing motion. longer oil patterns fear this ball an absolute must have for any competitive tournament bowler.
DO I recommend to a friend? I recommend 2. ABSOLUTELY MUST HAVE
The new Alpha Jackal is the latest release from MOTIV Bowling. Bringing together the same core that MOTIV fans loved from the Jackal Ghost with a much stronger cover that makes the Alpha Jackal the strongest bowling ever made from heavy oil from MOTIV. The Alpha Jackal brings back the Predator V2 core with the Corecion HV3 Solid cover stock gives players traction on heavy oil with high flare and just flat out hook on heavy oil makes the Alpha Jackal a must in anyone’s bag.

The Jackal Ghost is by far my favorite of the Jackal line. That ball just works on anything for me and still use it today when the time is right. However, The Alpha Jackal is starting to take the cake for me from this line. I love the shape it give my plus is just flat out hooks and doesn’t stop. It has bailed me out in tournaments as well as when I see over/under during league because it just bails me out. You want hook but also continuation without burning up then the Alpha Jackal is the bowling ball for you. High rev players will love this bowling ball because of what I just said. Medium to lower rev players will love this piece because they will feel comfortable moving in without the risk of leaving corner pins because of the continuation that Alpha Jackal provides.
Likes: Flat out hook; continuation through the pins.
I recommend this piece for all types of bowlers
MOTIV Staff Player,
I got the required number of strikes to make my ball review video (generally I use 5-8 depending on what keeps it under 2 minutes) in under 5 minutes, so I kept the camera rolling and actually ended up with so many strikes that I could literally make a 1:50 video of me only throwing strikes after I edited down the initial 12 minute video.
I’m editing the video as I write this, and I can tell you that this ball is running over the 8 pin almost every single shot as I rewatch them, and there’s a couple ways you can look at that; either I need to move left, or the ball doesn’t quit while going through the pins. Once the video is published, you’ll see that I eventually move about 10-15 by the end, and the 8 pin still has zero chance, so the ball might just be insane.
My early experiences with this ball was that it was too much for everything we had on the machine to throw at it, it actually was too much for Route 66 at box, but looked awesome at 5500~. At that surface I was also able to use it on the house shot effectively.
I took it back to a fresh 2k by resurfacer before shooting the video, then threw it on this year’s US Open 4 pattern after I got done shooting and made it look like a house shot, so that was pretty fun. No further surface adjustments before going front 8 in league on Thursday with it, so it seems that this one is also VERY surface friendly. All in all, this one’s pretty good!
Holy cow, this ball is amazing! Out of box at 2000 throwing on a fresh THS, the Alpha Jackal showed its true power. I was really surprised at just how smooth something that strong could be! The Alpha Jackal is definitely a ball for you if you need a strong, yet really smooth asymmetrical. I took the Alpha Jackal down to 4000 grit for the house I bowl in and shot back to back 250+ games in league. This is definitely a special piece in the bag. Not only can I score well bowling on the Dragon pattern, but I can score well on a fresh house shot. This ball is very versatile! Its a definite go-to when the lanes are fresh!
