This was my first Motiv ball, I switched from Brunswick, Radical, and DV8, and I cannot say enough about this ball. It can hold a line in oil, it sees friction and doesn't hesitate. Heck, even on oil it still finds friction enough for a beautiful line to the pocket. I shot my 2nd and 3rd 300 with this ball, back to back, and still had the front 4 of the next game. I shot my first 800 with this ball, so I made the switch and will never look back. This ball is so easy to make a transition with on house and sport shots. The shape is nothing that I've seen before. The carry and drive it has when it hits the pocket is what makes this ball my go to. If you can still get your hands on one do not hesitate to do so.
This being my 2nd Jackal and 3rd ball with the predator core (along with the Raptor p7 and the Jackal Ghost), this ball paid for itself. Literally.
I picked this just prior to bowling a 6 gamer on Sunset strip. A pattern many people tend to not do well on.
However, if you play to your strengths and with confidence the ball will be just as confident. It read the heavy oil properly with a 50 x 4 1/4 x 40 layout and continued all the way through the pins. 4's and 9's were expected and they did show up every once in a while.
After 5 games i was plus 112 and sitting in the top 5 with one game to go. the last pair was broken down real bad, and given the excitement of the atmosphere, i got nervous, i felt the butterflies and my stomach was all twisted up, so I played safe. I switched from A game to B game and finished with a 170, knocking me back to plus 82, finishing 7th out of a 61 man/woman field of the best from the west.
My last game i saved all my bad shots for and by the tenth with nothing left on the lanes, I switched to the ghost and turkeyed.
the ball (Rising) serves a very strong purpose but remember to get your PAP, rotation and tilt mapped out because you can only drill a new ball once. Find one before there aren't anymore and as always good luck and good bowling.
This is a ball that before I used, I had a 170 avg. Now that I got this ball, my avg jumped to a 202 avg. I would definitely recommend this ball if you have a higher rev rate like me because it has a better chance of coming back in the back end, if you have pin up like me. If you plan to bowl on wood lanes I would not recommend sanding it down with 500 grit pad. Trust me I made that mistake. If you’re gonna bowl on wood lanes with this ball use a 1500 or 2000 grit sand pad.
Im a 200 average bowler. Bought this ball two weeks ago for league play. 1st week 650 series. Last Friday, 245,252, and my 1st 300 for a 797 best series ever. I know, that damn 800! In due time...
By far one of the greatest, if not, the greatest ball I have ever thrown. I only had light-medium oil balls until I got the Jackal. Made my averages shoot from 165 to 179 in 7 weeks, a must have and a fun ball to use.
