Meet the Mythic Jackal, a new kind of hybrid.  Our engineering goal with this ball was to create as much angle as possible while still providing true heavy oil performance attributes.  So often, shiny asyms are only ideal for moderate conditions so we set out to create a different kind of animal.  Now, when high volume patterns begin to transition and you need to create angle, the Mythic Jackal with 2:1 hybrid technology delivers exactly what you need.

The Predator™ V2 is the gold standard for high performance core design and it’s at the center of the Mythic Jackal.  It’s the same core found in the Jackal Ghost, the longest running asymmetrical bowling ball in the industry, now celebrating a 5-year anniversary!  This low RG / high differential asymmetric core has never before been combined with a hybrid cover stock on a worldwide Jackal release.  The Mythic is the first. 

The Mythic Jackal is also the first to feature Infusion HV 2:1 Hybrid Reactive cover technology. This means the shell features twice as much pearl as solid cover material.  This enables it to create incredible angle down lane without completely sacrificing traction.  The 33% load of solid cover gives the Mythic Jackal a strong footprint on the lane in heavy oil while the 67% load of pearl yields a powerful backend motion.   

When To Use:

  • Speed Dominant Bowlers: Bowlers with speed that overwhelms their rev rate will love that the Mythic Jackal™ allows them an angular ball option to use early in the block.  For speed dominant bowlers, pearls are often too clean and many hybrids are designed for higher friction environments.  The Mythic Jackal™ is a true heavy oil ball that speed dominant bowlers will be able to use to see down lane motion before the lanes have been broken down.
     
  • Balanced Bowlers:  For balanced bowlers, having a pearl asymmetric designed for oil is important.  Sometimes, moving into the oil with the “crankers” is advantageous, but without a stable core and stronger cover, the balanced bowlers and tweeners just seem to get overpowered.  The Mythic Jackal™ is designed for that early transition when bowlers start to use steeper angles, but there is still a decent concentration of oil on the lane.
     
  • Rev Dominant Bowlers:  Those with lower ball speed or higher rev rates will love being able to shape the Mythic Jackal™ from the start.  For those unable to use smoother rolling balls designed for oil like the Jackal™ Legacy, Jackal™ Ghost, or Trident™ Odyssey, the added length of the Mythic Jackal™ will provide that much needed length out of the gate.  Rev Dominant bowlers in high friction or moderate volume environments may use the Mythic Jackal™ as their fresh oil ball.

    This Jackal is angry

    I needed a more angular ball in my arsenal over my fatal venom. This ball has a personal vendetta with bowling pins. I missed mark a couple times by a few boards, but The Jackal didn’t care. It changed course and went straight for the pocket! If you don’t have one of these, I’d recommend 100% you add it.

    Mythic Jackal

    To put it simply, this ball is amazing! After dropping a pound down to 14lbs a year ago I have struggled to find consistency. The increase in ball speed forced me to move right while also battling throwing through the breakpoint. I bought this ball assuming that the hybrid cover would be longer than the strong solids while giving me a more consistent breakpoint than the pearls. The results EXACTLY what I was looking for! This ball allowed me to open my angles back up to my comfort zone. Medium-long, with a consistent breakpoint, continuous backend, and enough stored energy to make the corner and carry. The first ball out of my bag every time.

    Not only would I recommend this to a friend, I convinced a pro shop operator at a tournament
    i attended (who is a self proclaimed "Motiv Guy") that he needed to drill his up rather than sell it. After hearing me talk about it and watching me throw he had his drilled the next day.

    Love it

    Had it drilled pin down to compliment the rest of my arsenal. Struggled with it until I took the polish off with a 1000 grit pad. Now it’s much more controllable and consistent.

    First Ever Motiv Ball

    I tend to struggle with high end asyms rolling out or not hooking entirely, but this ball I was pleasantly surprised with. I can actually get this ball to come around off the spot where my other high end asym balls labor and roll out. I love the look and the ability this ball gives me to get a little bit further left than I had been able to get all year. We had brand new lanes put in and everything skated and was over/under reaction as you moved right to see friction, but this ball was the house shot killer for me which I haven’t had in a long time! Highly recommend the Mythic!
