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.

    Mythic Jackal is a great ball

    Core: Predator V2
    Type: Asymmetrical
    Coverstock: Infusion HV 2:1 Hybrid Reactive
    Box Finish: 5000 Grit LSP

    The Mythic Jackal is exactly what i was hoping for. The ball wants to find the pocket and the cover never gets oil soaked like a solid. Appreciate the ability of the cover stock to flick off the oil instead of soaking in and losing its hook. i can throw this ball by just moving a few boards all tournament without fail.

    its a great ball - thanks Motiv - exactly what i needed as my base piece

    Probably my second favorite ball...

    I just had this ball drilled this week and used it for league and... wow! I had a Sky Raptor drilled at the same time so the Mythic didn't come out until game two but what a performance. I would typically work my way to my Pride as lanes transition but I am waiting for my replacement Pride to be delivered so I had to go to the Mythic early. I under read the strength of this ball in the first frame and left the 1 and 3 (drilled pin up, this ball reads the oil and finish really strong on the back for a really smooth shape). After the first frame I then threw 9 strikes (two were Brooklyn). The ball hits the pins hard and has the big smooth shape down lane that I like to play. I am a balanced bowler (350ish revs but I keep the ball speed down to 14-14.5 to balance it) and was concerned this ball may roll out too soon and exhaust energy before hitting the pins but I had nothing to worry about. And this is just cosmetics, BUT, I think this ball looks absolutely beautiful down the lane. I will keep the Pride as my benchmark but will be looking forward to the transition to get this ball out. Well done Motiv!!! 6 ball arsenal = Mythic Jackal, Sky Raptor, Trident Odyssey, Pride, Venom Shock, Fatal Venom

    First 700 Series

    This ball was given to me in new condition. I was able to get it fitted for my hand the next day and used it the same night in league play. I shot my first 700 series (740) and could not believe how this ball held up through all three games.

    This is no Myth

    I ordered this ball and the Ember at the same time.

    I have the Mythic drilled Pin Down as my Jackal Flash is pin up. They actually compliment each other pretty well, but the Mythic is more angular, goes longer, and blends the used pattern better, for me.

    I decided to use this as my league ball right out of the box. The first time I threw it, I was shocked at how long it went. I thought I earned myself a 6 pin when all the sudden it made a left turn, hit the pocket and blew up the rack. I ended up throwing a 640 that night out of the box. Not to bad. I (not the ball) made a few mistakes, where that score could have been much better.

    My intent for this ball is to have something that can go through the "tracks" of some of the other teams and bowlers I go against.

    While working through the transition, where I've had other balls pick up on the other tracks that guys have made causing a bad over/under for me. This ball doesn't do that.

    I will say... do NOT be afraid to send this ball out! It WILL come back!

    I used it this weekend in a tourney, throwing a 244 with it after 2 splits in frames 2 and 3 due to exactly what I was talking about above. This ball blends that abused pattern out, and has the power even in a heavier worked over pattern.
