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.

    First 300 and 800

    Dropped from 16lbs to 15lbs and a buddy gave me a few Motiv balls to try the weight. Fell in love with them and shortly after I picked up the Mythic. Bowled two games with it and loved it. Then on a Friday league I was in heaven with it. This ball gave me room to miss right and I was in the zone. Shot 266-300-268 on one of the hardest pairs in the house and got my first 300 and first 800 against my father. It was awesome. Continued to crush the lanes with this ball since getting it. My averages has jumped 15 pins because the carry this ball gives. Can’t recommend this ball enough to my friends.

    Best ball in my bag

    Was a DV8 Thrower 'til I picked up this ball and it quickly became my favorite. Length and snap is what hooked me to this ball.

    Best Ball I’ve ever thrown

    The moment I got this ball I thought it’d be a great addition to my arsenal and man was I right. Definitely the best ball in my bag, especially being such an angular ball it’s really changed my game. Next step is the Venom Coral and the Jackal Ghost

    That BIG Pearl ball

    For a big pearl ball, this is often times the first ball out of my bag anywhere I go. The versatility is pretty wild. You need to play up the gutter? It will do it. Need to get in deep, clear the fronts, and have some pop at the end? This is one of the balls in the Motiv line that will do it! You can't really ask much more out of a bowling ball, really. One of Motiv's best releases in my opinion.

    Another Jackal, Another Beast

    The Mythic Jackal is another awesome and DIFFERENT addition to the Jackal line. One of their most angular balls to date, the Mythic Jackal really provides a huge finish in the backend of those heavier oil patterns. I love this ball for heavier patterns that don't go as long or as a second ball when my solid option (Jackal Legacy, Trident Odyssey) starts to roll too early or can't give me the angular finish I need. The hybrid cover stock gives you the extra length of the pearl with the same booming finish you expect from a solid Jackal. The Predator V2 core is still rolling strong and whenever I know I'm going to encounter a decent volume of oil out there on the lanes, the Mythic Jackal is gonna be one of the balls in my bag.
