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.

    Jackal legacy

    Layout 50x4.5x20

    Legacy is definitely an accurate name with this one. Definitely a very solid piece to carry on the Legacy for the Jackal line.
    I laid this ball out to be fairly clean. The reason being with this being such an aggressive ball I put a longer pin on it and what a great decision.
    I've found so far that Motiv did a great job at designing this ball to be naturally clean with this being such a big ball.
    With the layout that I put I found it very appealing as it allowed the Legacy which has a low rg to naturally read the lane while it still retained plenty of energy making it extremely continuous the pins. Comparing it to my Alpha Jackal, I found the legacy to be much slower off the spot downlane and a little earlier. A great ball to start off with when the lanes have quite a bit of volume on them!

    Insane Jackal

    I've been blown away throwing this Jackal Legacy. Every pattern I throw it on it's just an absolute monster (then again I love every Predator V2 core ball). When I first threw this ball, I had to move quite a bit left because of the huge coverstock and core combo. Once I got used to the shape of the ball, being a new stronger solid coverstock, I knew this ball would be great for those heavier oil patterns to give me that strong ball I need. This ball suits every kind of bowler, regardless of rev rate. I highly recommend drilling one up if you haven't, especially if you need a heavy oil ball or a big ball in general.

    Jackal Legacy Review

    What to say other than, this ball hooks! The combination of the Coercion™ MXC Solid Reactive seen in the Forge Flare and the Predator™ V2 Asymmetric core found in other Jackals, this ball opens up unfamiliar territories for me on the lane. I'm able to get in deep on longer and heavier oil patterns and still create shape I otherwise wouldn't be able to. I've noticed with this increased shape from a deeper angle, I'm also not losing any carry through the pins, which is also a big plus.

    I've drilled two Legacy's so far, one pin up and one pin down. The pin up ball is great when I need to create a little more shape down lane, while still reading the oil in the mids. The pin down ball has been great for closing my angles and digging through the heavy oil.

    I see this ball having a spot in my bag for a long time!

    Jackal Legacy

    The layout I used on this ball is 60x5x30. This is the same layout I used on the Alpha Jackal as well. I was overly excited about drilling this ball because it shares the same cover as the Forge Flare, and that ball gave me plenty of success since release. The Jackal Core with the Coercion gives us the strongest ball Motiv has created! Not only does this ball see the midlane, but it also shows great continuation on the backend. I like to use the Jackal Legacy when there is a bunch of oil on the lane, longer pattens, and when I need to blend out the wet/dry that you can typically see on a house shot.
