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.

    Fantastic control piece

    I've had great success in very different houses with this ball. Gets through the fronts beautifully but the core is so strong it looks like the ball gets yanked back to the pocket. A great first ball or 2nd after blending the oil out with the Raptor Fury.

    Incredible Drive Through the Pins!!!

    Just had my Crimson drilled today. OMG!!! This ball is AMAZING!! I LOVE my Jackal AMBUSH; it breaks early and is perfect when the lanes are not too wet. I normally throw my AMBUSH 13-13.5 to get it to move to the pocket. But the CRIMSON….!!! I can load up and roll it 15.5 and it hooks at the last minute into the pocket!!! WITH POWER and DRIVE!!! First games with it: 175; 214; 235!!! And I can control it for spares! Very consistent. This ball is a 15 on a scale of 1-10!!! Thank you MOTIV!!!!

    Nice Strong Pearl

    This ball does a great job retaining energy down lane. Very strong and angular, very good addition to the arsenal for a bowler with a lower rev rate who wants to move in on the lane.

    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
