Jackal Ghost

The Jackal has been resurrected! The new Jackal Ghost is here to reign terror on heavy oil. With paranormal performance, it delivers more total hook potential than any previous Jackal with no loss in continuation. It's scary good! The Predator V2 weight block, first used on the Jackal LE, is now at the core of the Jackal Ghost. Featuring a low RG and loads of differential, this asymmetric design is easy to rev and produces massive track flare.

Combining the physics of the Predator V2 with the chemistry of the new Coercion HFS (High Friction Solid) cover stock, the Jackal Ghost elevates heavy oil performance to a new level. Coercion HFS is the most aggressive cover stock to date on a bowling ball in the Jackal product line. Turned with a 3000 Grit Lss Finish, bowlers will see both excellent mid-lane read and unbelievable continuation.

Obviously the Jackal Ghost will be a go-to ball for bowlers that want to see more hook without sacrificing continuation on higher volumes of oil. It will also be ideal for bowlers that have a low rev rate or higher ball speeds.

When To Use 

  • Speed Dominant - For a bowler with high ball speed or those with lower rev rates, the Jackal Ghost serves as an outstanding benchmark option due to the cleaner cover and controllable motion down lane.  The versatility of drilling offered by the Predator V2 also makes the Ghost a great benchmark piece for speed dominant bowlers. 
  • Balanced - Players who are balanced in their speed to rev rate ratio find the Ghost to be a must have for fresh oil and longer patterns.  The Jackal Ghost is ideal for balanced bowlers to use in a variety of lower friction environments. 
  • Rev Dominant - Over the past several years AJ Johnson and EJ Tackett have proven that the Jackal Ghost is a must have for the rev dominant player.  Due to the coverstock being moderately clean, a rev dominant player is able to use the Jackal Ghost without worrying about it “burning up” or getting too forward down lane like so many heavy oil asymmetrical balls

    Strong, Solid, Smooth ball!,

    Got this ball back when it first came out and I loved it. extremely smooth and reliable reaction down lane. I would even start with this ball in leagues sometimes and just ball down once it starts getting too strong. I took a break starting in 2019 and just started back up this year and it's still a great ball even after just sitting in my bag for years. It is so reliable and I see myself getting another when this one just starts to die on me.

    As I look to update my bag more and more, I will only be looking at Motiv!

    Great ball when there is oil

    I've had this ball since its release and it's still the first ball I throw most league nights. On patterns where there is very little oil outside and my breakpoint is around the 5 board, I find the ball tends to run out too early and leaves flat tens every shot. When I move my line in to break in heavier oil on those patterns, the ball carries well. It's not the most versatile ball for dry conditions but it breaks well in the oil, which is why I bought this ball and have been using it almost every night.

    Bottom line: if you tend to roll on drier patterns then this is not the ball for you, but if you have heavier you can play, then this ball lives up to the "heavy oil" designation.

    Smooth operator

    This ball bends the corner very smooth, almost deceptively smooth and has a good amount of miss room to work with. It handles medium to lighter oil (contrary to popular belief) very well and will go as far inside as you need to be. This ball is the perfect compliment to the Black Venom as a ball down. It's not angular at all but again just has a nice smooth continuous motion to kaboom-ville.

    Great Ball!

    I recently got back into bowling after a year away from it. I bought this ball and instantly improved my average by 15 pins. Best ball I've thrown and I look forward to adding more Motiv equipment to my arsenal.
