The new Golden Jackal™ brings the legend of a pearl Jackal™ to life.  Providing more length through the oil, the Golden Jackal™ displays an impressive backend motion.  Never before has there been a Jackal™ with this kind of agility and speed!

The Golden Jackal™ features the latest Predator™ V3 asymmetric weight block to provide massive track flare potential and hooking power.  This technology also produces a very low RG so the Golden Jackal™ is easier to rev, making it more forgiving on heavy oil patterns than higher RG balls that may slip past the proper transition point. 

For generating powerful angle in high volume environments, the Hexion™ SE cover is incredible.  This Strength Enhanced version of Hexion™ technology produces outstanding down lane motion without sacrificing traction in the oil.  The factory finish on the Golden Jackal™ cover stock is 4000 Grit LSS.

    Found one new in box!!!

    I had heard mixed reviews about this ball in the forums and I can honestly say.... I LOVE this ball!! I'm still not sure why people do not like it. Since I have switched from storm to Motiv this ball makes 6 that I have bought in the Motiv brand, and I can honestly say I have found my brand! Started with the Venom Shock (like everyone else) and now I have an arsenal of Motiv equipment!!!
    This ball is great on the fresh oil, in transition and when it's dry. It prefers oil but if you can stand left and get it right you won't have any issues! This is in my bag every time I go to a tournament.

    Meant for each other

    I've been wanting this ball for almost two years and I finally got one. It was as if we were meant to be together. This ball crushes the pocket and has decent margin of error. My average has gone up about 15 pins ever since I made the switch to the Golden Jackal. As a bonus, I think this is just one of the coolest looking balls out there.

    Great tournament ball

    This ball is an amazing compliment to the Jackal Ghost when it’s too much ball and Venom Shock Pearl when you need something stronger. Used the Gold Jackal in combination with my two Venom Shock pearls to navigate extremely broke down lanes throughout 8 games of match play to win my first GISBT title last April. The Gold Jackal is a ball I can always fall back on when the lanes get tricky. It’s also my main ball for league and have a 217 average using this ball every week.
