    Motiv Golden Jackal

    Golden Jackal
    I believe to date for MOTIV this is one of the strongest pearl asymmetrical balls on market. I personally drilled my Jackal Gold 25 X 4 X 55 giving it a small drilling angle and larger val. The Golden Jackal started up early, however, and had a slower transition down lane, which was good for me as a down and in player. Seems to give the Golden Jackal more energy on the back end down to the pin deck. I was very impressed when I changed the surface. I hit it with 1000 Abralon Pad and MOTIV Polish. The Golden Jackal was even stronger pushing pins back into the pin deck. The Golden Jackal is a must have in anyone’s MOTIV Arsenal who needs a strong Asymmetrical Pearl Bowling Ball!

    Forge Review

    I had high expectations for this ball as I was looking for a heavier symmetric solid to add to my arsenal for fresh house or tournament shots. This ball did not let me down allowing me to move in and roll the mid lane friction to create an arc shape entry to get a different look at the pocket. So smooth yet strong and predictable. I would put this ball up against any similar choice on the market and watch it chew up the competition.

    Forged in Fire

    Introducing the all new Motiv Forge, featuring the the never before seen Detonator Core and wrapped in the Coercion HFS cover. This is the strongest symmetrical ball I've ever thrown. It reminds me of a much stronger Venom Shock or Revolt Havoc.

    I find this ball to be great on a variety of patterns, and it’s become a sort of benchmark ball for me. I drilled mine 45x5.25x40, which is one of the weaker layouts I’ve ever used for something symmetrical.

    This ball excels anytime there’s free hook to the outside and a puddle in the middle, and with surface can be used to tame flatter shots with ease.

    The all new Forge is the strongest symmetric ball created by Motiv, to date. With the all new Detonator core, 2.47/0.055, it provides more track flare, and a smoother reaction to friction that you will love on fresh lane conditions to help blend the pattern out.
    The cover that is wrapped around this all new core is one of the strongest ever developed by Motiv, the "Coercion HFS" cover. This cover provides traction in the heaviest volumes and the box 3000 LSS surface compliments the early rolling tendencies of the core and cover combination.

    If you're looking for a lot of hook, suitable for a fresh lane patterns, the Forge is the ball you want
