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.

    This is Exactly what I was missing

    The Apex Predator is Back and this time in a Pearl that is crazy angular good. For anybody that knows my game personally - you know I love a good Pearl Asym and this Ball fits that bill and then some.

    Stand Left, Throw Right and Watch it Rip back to the Pocket and Shred the Pins. It's clean but not so clean that it misses the spot and when it sees the spot, it's splitting the 8-9 thru the back of the pin deck.

    You need to grab this one and expect it to be that perfect cleaner ball to grab when the Raptor Fury is just a touch early or at least that's how I'm seeing it in my bag,

    Wide variety of shapes gets wider

    In my time as a Motiv staffer, I've enjoyed the wide variety of shapes in the line from smooth to sharp. The Crimson Jackal increases the sharp end of the scale with help of the Propulsion HV+ Pearl cover. The backend shape allows me to get deeper without fear of losing angle. And we all know what the Predator V2 asym core can do, so this ball is a great add to the line. Great on heavy oil or tighter backends. 4.5x0 pap, 265rpm, 15mph, 60x5x40

    My favorite

    My absolute favorite ball so far. I'm a backup bowler. It's easily raised my average a good 30-40. Kinda sad my local place's ball return has taken divots out of mine. Might just have to buy another one!

    Great Shiny Ball

    The Crimson Jackal’s design intent was to be angular in heavier volumes of oil. As a balanced bowler, I feel like Motiv nailed it! While this ball isn’t really the first ball out of my bag, it does play a vital roll in ball #2 or ball #3 after the lanes begin to opens up and it allows me to continue to strike. I feel like this ball performs well on house patterns that aren’t super cliffed and many medium challenge and sport patterns.

    Jackal GOAT?

    The next success story in the best Assym product line on the market! The Crimson Jackal may be my favorite looking Jackal for shelf appeal and certainly sets a new standard for performance from a Pearl assymetrical ball.

    I have drilled two Crimson Jackals:
    40x5x70 pin down 1000 grit
    60x5x40 pin up out of box (light scuff to crack the surface)

    The pin down crimson with surface is nearly as strong as my Jackal Ghost with the same layout and maybe creates a bigger footprint in the lane. The pin up shiny Crimson Jackal is my favorite, with a much stronger shape than the previous Pride Empire, which was the last Pearl Assym I had used.

    Based on my success, my wife drilled a Crimson Jackal and it has worked great for her lower speed rev dominant style. For my higher speed/high rev style, I can create incredible angle with the Crimson Jackal, even on heavier fresher oil patterns.
