The Jackal™ reigns supreme on heavy oil!  For over a half-decade the Jackal line of bowling balls has been the dominant force for heavy oil.  The latest addition to the line, the Alpha Jackal™ pushes the boundaries by providing more hook with the control and devastating continuation that you expect.    

Following the success of the Jackal Ghost, we decided it was time to provide bowlers with an updated, stronger, solid reactive cover on the Predator V2 weight block.  Featuring Coercion™ HV3 Solid Reactive cover stock, the Alpha Jackal™ is all about creating traction in places where the previous Jackals could not.  This is the strongest cover ever used in the Jackal™ line. 

The Predator V2 asymmetric weight block driving the Alpha Jackal™ boasts a very low RG and loads of differential.  This enables you to maximize both revs and track flare.  

Players looking for traction on heavy or long oil patterns need to have the Alpha Jackal™ in their bag.  Expect speed dominant players who already depend on the reliability of the Jackal line to fall in love with the added hook and control of the Alpha edition.    

Along with outstanding performance, the solid Alpha Jackal™ is an eye-catching combination of purple and blue that gets attention both on the shelf and on the lanes. 

900 SERIES!!!

MOTIV® staffer, Wesley Low Jr., made history by rolling a perfect sanctioned 900 series on Sunday, July 19th using the Alpha Jackal at the 44th Annual Ponderosa Singles Classic at Glenfair Lanes in Glendale, Arizona.  Wesley said, "I don't think I've ever bowled back-to-back 300s, so that was a cool way to start the day, but it didn't sink in until about the seventh frame of the last game that I had a chance at 900. I really made an effort to stay calm and refocus. I still can't believe it happened. I always said I felt like I had a better chance at a hole-in-one in golf than 36 strikes in a row, and I'm not even that good at golf. To shoot 900, things really have to go your way. You need to make a lot of great shots, but you also need some breaks along the way."  Click here to read more!

    Another Jackal Phenom

    I added the Alpha to by ball bag and could not be happier. Once it hits the break point the pins just explode with some great follow through. It took a bit of adjusting to see the reaction down lane. I just need to keep it away from my son.

    My favorite ball ever!

    I've had this ball for about 3/4 of a year now, and it is so strong it's unreal! It lets me play as far left as I want to, and it never loses carry. It is my go-to ball on any shot that is long, medium, or house, as it lets me play left of the rest of the people on my lane, letting me play there longer. It is my favorite ball, and most likely will be for a long time.

    Fantastic Ball!!

    I threw my new Alpha Jackal last night for the first time during league. Actually, I started the night throwing the Tank Blitz. But after a horrid first game I switched to the Alpha (about the 7th or 8th frame in the first game) and never looked back the rest of the night. I ended up shooting 248 the second game and 212 the last game.

    Unfortunately my bowling alley, which I've bowled at for the past 30 years, closed at the end of the summer and we were forced to go somewhere else. So it's taken a little time to get used to the new place. Much more oil than I was used too. But I finally found the ball which gives me a reaction very similar to what I've always been used too.

    And to be honest I did have some wiggle room with the ball. If I missed outside it still came back nice. It seems like the Tank Blitz you have to be so fine and so perfect with speed and everything in order to get it to do what it should. The Alpha packs a punch and I highly recommend it.

    Alpha Jackal

    The Alpha Jackal has been a great piece in my bag. The Alpha Jackal is great when the Jackal Ghost isn’t strong enough and I need something to shape earlier. Compared to the Trident Abyss, the Abyss is earlier and more forward. With the Abyss, you can’t play as deep as you can with the Alpha Jackal. At least not with as steep of an angle. The Abyss is made more for shallow angles. The Alpha Jackal is really unique. It's a strong early asymmetrical ball that you can still play steeper angles with. My typical line I like playing with this ball is about 20-10. This ball allows me to control the pattern very well on heavier oil patterns. This ball also responds to surface changes exceptionally well. I changed the surface to 4000. Compared to 2000 surface, 4000 gives you more push in the mid lane and a faster reaction down lane. I find myself able to play steeper angles than with the Alpha Jackal at box surface (2000).
