Jackal Flash

The Jackal™ series from MOTIV® represents the ultimate level of high performance and the Jackal™ Flash is an incredible addition. It is the strongest asymmetric pearl that MOTIV® has ever developed.  When bowling on higher volumes of oil with a solid asymmetric ball like the Jackal™ Ghost or the Alpha edition, the ball you transition to should provide similar strength, but be cleaner through the front of the lane with a faster response on the backend. And that is precisely what the Jackal™ Flash is built for.

The performance technology packed into the 3-color pearl Flash edition is synergistically merged and tuned with a 5000 Grit LSP finish to produce pin-crushing continuation. The asymmetric Predator® V2 core has a super low RG and is packed with differential to maximize revs and track flare. This powerful core is encased with the latest Infusion™ HV Pearl Reactive cover stock from MOTIV® to provide the length and powerful angle needed when transitioning on heavy oil patterns.

While designed as an early transition ball for heavy oil, rev dominant bowlers can use the Jackal™ Flash as the first ball out of their bag. Speed dominant bowlers who cannot usually throw a pearl ball will find it to be very versatile in more moderate conditions.

    The Jackal Flash is a ball for everyone. This ball is amazing it gets through the front of the lane and reserves its energy for i’s strong backend. The Flash creates a lot of striking power as rolls through the pins with force and sends them flying. I cannot recommend this ball enough it is a must have for any arsenal.

    New Cover Tech

    The Jackal Flash is the newest at the HP performance level with a stronger version of the new Infusion Pearl Cover. When you wrap this cover around the proven Jackal core, you get an absolute HOME RUN. This is the most angular piece we have ever seen at this performance point, but the real amazing thing about it is that even if you get it into the volume, it still digs and makes the corner! It’s a great compliment to both the Alpha Jackal, and the Trident Nemesis. If you want strength AND angularity, you need a Jackal Flash.

    I have thrown the jackal flash for approximately 2 months now and have tested it on house shots and tournament conditions. I have been blown away by this ball. This ball allows me to get in and really get that left to right game going. I have also been able to use this ball on fresh oil patterns which is something I haven't been able to do with a pearl ball in the past. Motiv has hit this one out of the park!

    After 7.5 months, I was finally able to hit the lanes again and test out the Jackal Flash. The Flash features the Predator V2 core from the Jackal Ghost and Alpha Jackal, and is wrapped with the Infusion HV Pearl Reactive Coverstock featured on the Trident Nemesis. I matched up well with the Alpha and Nemesis before the pandemic hit and I've been very excited ever since I heard the Flash incorporating both balls like they did with the Forge and Ripcord to make the Forge Fire. I drilled mine with the pin above the ring to keep things consistent with my Alpha and Nemesis.

    It took a few games, but I was able to get my legs under me. In comparing the Flash to the Alpha, I feel this will be a great transition when the lanes start to break down and bridge the gap to get into my Venom Shock or Supra (Fatal Venom coming soon!). On house, I was about 4-5 boards left with my Alpha vs the Flash. When throwing the Nemesis, I was pretty close to where I was standing with the Flash but the Nemesis read the lanes sooner and was much smoother overall. I ended up hitting my Nemesis with a 3000 pad by hand and it created a bigger gap between the two balls. I absolutely feel you can keep all 3 balls in your bag. From the Alpha, I now have options if I need something smoother or need more pop in the back end.

    One of the best balls ever!!!!

    Having recently (past couple years) decided to convert to Motiv, i have thoroughly enjoyed using your products. Having dislocated my shoulder (which already had a injured rotator cuff) a couple years ago I went through ALOT of changes with ball weights, release and swing and your balls have worked great in every aspect of the change. But now, even with me only at about 70-80% of my old self, since buying this ball i am shooting AWESOME!!!! My averages have jumped 8 pins (+) ( highest is 14 pins) and this is due to the ability of me to use the ball with little variations as oil breaks down. I look forward to the next week of bowling to see what i do now instead of dreading it and wishing the season would end. Thank you for creating this ball and your entire line. #GOMOTIV.
