Usually I throw a ball that has a fairly early break point due to ball speed. However I often find that it burns up before it reaches the pins. The Alpha Jackal is unique in that I had it drilled to go a little deeper and it does not disappoint! Gets a bit further down the lane and has tons of hitting power left. Numerous 700s with this ball this crazy league year. Can't wait to see what's next in this line!
After a short break of 13 years from the sport I decided to get back into it. I started back with an IQ tour Nano and it was all right, but on a whim decided to purchase the Alpha Jackal, and I'm glad I did. It seemed like my game came alive. Went from a 185 avg to a 210 avg almost over night. This ball is great on the typical house shot, extremely forgiving and hits the pocket hard. My speed is inconsistent sometimes and this ball adjust well to the speed changes. I will probably purchase another one soon.
I added the Alpha to by ball bag and could not be happier. Once it hits the break point the pins just explode with some great follow through. It took a bit of adjusting to see the reaction down lane. I just need to keep it away from my son.
I've had this ball for about 3/4 of a year now, and it is so strong it's unreal! It lets me play as far left as I want to, and it never loses carry. It is my go-to ball on any shot that is long, medium, or house, as it lets me play left of the rest of the people on my lane, letting me play there longer. It is my favorite ball, and most likely will be for a long time.
I threw my new Alpha Jackal last night for the first time during league. Actually, I started the night throwing the Tank Blitz. But after a horrid first game I switched to the Alpha (about the 7th or 8th frame in the first game) and never looked back the rest of the night. I ended up shooting 248 the second game and 212 the last game.
Unfortunately my bowling alley, which I've bowled at for the past 30 years, closed at the end of the summer and we were forced to go somewhere else. So it's taken a little time to get used to the new place. Much more oil than I was used too. But I finally found the ball which gives me a reaction very similar to what I've always been used too.
And to be honest I did have some wiggle room with the ball. If I missed outside it still came back nice. It seems like the Tank Blitz you have to be so fine and so perfect with speed and everything in order to get it to do what it should. The Alpha packs a punch and I highly recommend it.
