Jackal Legacy

$269.994 Read Reviews


The Jackal™ series from MOTIV® has certainly made a big impact in the bowling industry and its reputation for massive performance continues with the Jackal™ Legacy. This hook-beast is designed to handle the heaviest oil conditions any bowler will encounter.

Utilized often in recent years, the Predator™ V2 has proven to be a versatile, strong, and reliable high-performance core. It is used in the Jackal™ Ghost to provide a fantastic benchmark asymmetrical shape and in the more recent Jackal™ Flash to produce the most angular Jackal™ ever made. It also powered the Alpha Jackal™ used by PBA® professional Wesley Low to roll the first-ever sanctioned 900 series with a MOTIV® ball. And now, it is being merged with Coercion™ MXC Solid Reactive cover stock to create the strongest Jackal™ to roll off the MOTIV® production line.

The introduction of Coercion™ MXC (MaXimum Continuation) Solid Reactive cover stock sent waves through the sport. Without a doubt, this is one of the strongest covers in bowling today and what makes it truly special is not just the unbelievable traction! Until now, bowling balls that provided incredible traction in oil were greatly limited because the energy used up front adversely impacted the ability to continue down lane. Coercion™ MXC is most impressive because it gives the solid Jackal™ Legacy superior traction in oil and strong down lane motion with continuation previously thought impossible.

Out of the box, bowlers can expect the powerful solid Jackal™ Legacy to provide loads of traction in heavy oil, a smooth motion, and a controllable shape that minimizes over/under reaction on wet/dry conditions. Obviously, a ball this strong will be of particular interest to speed dominant bowlers on a variety of conditions.

When To Use:

  • Speed Dominant - The Jackal Legacy will allow speed dominant players who struggle to see mid lane read with down lane continuation to play their "A Game" with confidence.  This is truly a ball made to suit the strengths of the speed dominant player.  The Coercion MXC is already known for its incredible mid-lane read and continuation, but when powered by a strong and proven asymmetric core, the results are undeniable.  This is truly a speed dominant player's dream.
  • Balanced - WIth an incredibly aggressive core/cover combination and the well known versatility of the Predator V2 core, a balanced bowler now has a ball to use when rev dominant players are using the Jackal Ghost.  The Jackal Legacy makes a shape comparable to the Jackal Ghost, but with more total hook.  A balanced bowler will be able to use the Jackal Legacy on fresh patterns where the Ghost is just too clean and when players who have more rev rate are striking with the Ghost.
  • Rev Dominant - The Jackal Legacy is a ball that a rev dominant bowler will carry in their bag so that they ALWAYS have something no matter how much oil they encounter.  This is the strongest Jackal ever, and Rev Dominant players can compete with the knowledge that they always have "hook in a box" waiting for them with the Legacy.

    Holy Hook

    It felt like it was a matter of time before the Corecion MXC Solid cover was going to be put on a core with a bigger motor and I could not be more happy with the results!

    OOB, the Legacy looks like it has a sheen to it which made this ball go a little further down the lane than the Forge Flare. The Legacy reads the middle really well and has a strong, controllable motion off the end of the pattern.

    I sanded the ball with a fresh 2000 CTD pad and the motion reminds me so much of the OG Jackal, one of my favorite asymmetrical balls of all time. Recently I bowled a tournament on a long sport pattern and I had a look nobody else had. I was standing further left than everybody else and my misses outside were able to make it back to the pocket while other bowlers were leaving washouts and 2-10 combinations.

    I’ve been impressed with the versatility of this ball so far and will absolutely be bringing this ball to tournaments with me!

    Jackal Legacy

    The brand new Jackal Legacy is a combination of the Jackal core and the coverstock from the Forge Flare. This will always be the first ball out of my bag a tournament. I drilled 2 different Legacies, one drilled pin up and the other one was pin down. The pin up gave me more forgiveness when I missed outside my target. The pin down was much smoother off the spot, its response to friction was not as hard as the pin up. This ball is one of my new favorites for sure!

    Pleasant Surprise

    Admittedly, I haven’t had much luck with Jackals in the past. I’ve always chalked that up to a big, rolly asymmetrical not fitting my style well.

    That is absolutely not the case with the Legacy. This ball is different. Although this review is based on a fairly small sample size (4-5 games), I’ve been nothing short of amazed by it.

    Strong is the easy way to describe it, but it’s so much more than just strong. It’s versatile enough to do what it’s “supposed” to do with differing hand positions. It’s forgiving enough to make up for some operator error. It’s early enough to read the midlane well, but long enough that it retains energy through the pins. Bottom line, this is the ball I always wanted a Jackal to be.

    As a bonus, Motiv hit a home run with the subtle use of 3 colors in this ball. Not only does it look mean, it rolls mean and hits mean too.
