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.

    I put WOW as my heading because last night at bowling all I heard every time I threw the new Jackal Flash was WOW look at that ball hook.
    Now mind you I only throw a semi hook I start at 5 board and let it snap hard on the backend. The Jackal Flash is one of the greatest bowling balls I have ever thrown. The ball snaps so hard and looks really amazing doing it.

    I would recommend this ball to anyone.

    Jackal Flash

    The first tri-colored ball from Motiv!! The layout I used on the Jackal Flash is 70x4x20. This is my typical asym pearl layout. The Jackal Flash has a similar motion to the Trident Nemesis. However, this ball outperforms the Trident Nemesis when there is a heavier concentration of oil on the lane. The Nemesis tended to want to roll forward when it saw oil. That is not the case with the Flash. The Flash will be good for when you need to play with open angles. It is also the perfect ball to transition too once the Alpha Jackal does not want to corner the right way.

    The Jackal Flash is incredible, and not just because it is a new high performance (HP) ball in Motiv’s line but because of what it does on the lanes. The Flash is incredibly responsive and handles a heavier amount of oil like no other HP pearl ball. I am a huge fan of the Jackal line, and this one by far is the best pearlized addition. Adding a great compliment to the existing ghost and alpha, this ball retains the energy longer and continues through the pin just as much. One of the biggest benefits this ball has given me, a speed dominant bowler, is it has been very hard for me to throw this ball past the break point. This ball sees a lot of play on the lanes!

    Jackal Flash!!!!!!!!

    The Jackal Flash features the Infusion Cover has turned into my most favorite Pearl Cover. I compared my Jackal Flash alongside the Alpha Jackal. While having similar layouts on both, I knew my angles would have to be more opened when throwing my Jackal Flash. I was mentally prepped knowing how fast the Infusion Cover likes to cover as seen with the Forge Fire and Supra just to name a couple. My immediate reaction was a big WOW after seeing I was approx. 7-8 boards left with my feet from the Alpha Jackal. While there was a defined friction spot on the lane, I was able to go a few more boards further with ease and the Jackal Flash did not want to quit on the backend.
    The Jackal Flash is something everybody can use. What I love the most about it is when there is a defined hook spot downlane, I can stay ahead of the field getting left and project the Jackal Flash to that spot while having the confidence in it to hook back to the pocket. For a piece that is this strong overall, both cover and core, the Jackal Flash still has plenty of power getting through the pins. For the tournament players especially, this is a huge piece to have in the arsenal and pairs well with many styles. The Jackal Flash has that WOW factor both on and off the lanes.

    Jackal Flash is the standard for Asymmetric Pearls

    I've had the chance to throw the MOTIV Jackal Flash for a bit now, and I'm loving the clean Infusion cover on the Jackal Ghost core. They're a great match for each other. The Ghost core loves to rev up, and the Infusion cover lets the ball rev as much as it wants without losing energy because it's so clean on the oil. This allows the Jackal Flash to save a ton of energy for the backend, and if you've watched any videos, you already know what this ball is capable of when it gets to the end of the pattern.

    I can definitely see myself throwing this ball in leagues when I need to get in a little bit, and in tournaments where there is a lot of volume but I don't want the ball to read too early - like on higher friction surfaces, or long oil patterns that have a low oil volume.

    Here's my YouTube video for the Jackal Flash if you'd like to check it out: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2E6qRiaFfqE
