Just like a predator in the wilderness, the Crimson Jackal thrives on two critical factors: lightning speed and unmatched agility.  The Crimson Jackal emerges as the apex predator on the lanes, boasting an unprecedented ability to change directions in the blink of an eye and respond to friction faster than any Jackal before.  The Crimson Jackal is a predator with a killer instinct like no other.

We’ve conquered the challenge of creating a coverstock that delivers lightning-fast response in a heavy oil environment with new Propulsion HV+ cover technology.  The strongest Propulsion shell to date, Propulsion HV+ takes performance to the next level.  When paired with the Predator V2 core, this shell guarantees bowlers can wield this monster core even when attacking the lanes at steep angles.

Powering the Crimson Jackal is the Predator V2, a legend in its own right and a dynamic powerhouse.  Previously seen in other great Jackals such as the Jackal Ghost; this fast revving and huge flaring, asymmetric beast is designed to be the strongest core in any bowler’s bag.  Be prepared to dominate the lanes with this force of nature!


  • Speed Dominant Bowlers - For bowlers with more ball speed and lower rpm, the Crimson Jackal is a pearl that can be trusted to create angle and shape when other pearls would be too weak to get started or get around the corner. 
  • Balanced Bowlers - For balanced bowlers the Crimson Jackal will be the first pearl out of the bag and should allow for steeper angles earlier in blocks.  When other angular balls just seem to get too far down lane before making their move, the Crimson Jackal with the Predator V2 core should provide more mid-lane stability while the Propulsion HV+ cover gives great down lane pop.
  • Rev Dominant Bowlers - For the bowlers with the lowest speed and/or the highest rev rate the Crimson Jackal gives them an asymmetrical core option that is clean enough through the front of the lane.  So many rev dominant bowlers are forced out of asymmetric cores because they are fast revving and early.  The Crimson Jackal is clean and angular, allowing rev dominant bowlers to use it when there is lower friction, but they want a big pearl asym.

    Crimson Jackal


    Layout: 60 x 4 3/8 x 40

    Crimson Jackal sits up earlier than Mythic Jackal and Ripcord Launch, however the length it provides is comparable to Nuclear Forge.
    The Propulsion coverstock is what makes Crimson Jackal versatile on medium to heavier oil patterns, you will appreciate the remarkable total hook it provides.

    Crimson Jackal is a huge pearl, and the more friction Crimson encounters the bigger reaction you will see out of it. It can provide you with too much hook for drier conditions.

    Crimson Jackal is user friendly on a variety of patterns, and to anyone that was not fond of the Golden Jackal I would encourage you to accept the mission of putting a Crimson in your bag.

    Your game will thank you for it.

    My Favorite Asym.

    I bowl Rev heavy and have very rarely had a good time with asymmetrical balls. The turn up early on has always caused issues in consistency for me. However, this ball maintains its energy as it goes down lane and, not only has become my favorite asymmetrical ball, but one of my favorite balls in general. The coverstock does great, even in later blocks. And I don't think you can get too far over with this ball, it always seems to makes it way back to the pocket. As other asym balls, when the lane drys out, it gets difficult because of the early read; as you make your way over.

    Crimson Jackal

    This ball for me is versatile. Able to use it for the entire night without having to change. The ball is laid out 60 x 4 1/2 x 30. I am able to start the night playing straighter down the outside and as the night goes on, I just move my feet left and get the ball out and it will still come back to the pocket. This is one of the few balls that I have found that I can do this with. I would highly recommend this ball
