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.
This is the first ball I was able to throw 12 strikes in a row with. Super responsive to surface changes. Out of the box, it has a ton of length and lots of backend. Great addition for down and in bowlers, but also for those looking for something to get through the heads. I have enjoyed mine mostly at 3k or 4k surface.
I made my Golden Jackal shiny to get a little bit more pop down lane and I have to say that ball is amazing you can play Right ( as Right-handed ) and play Left with it and it still recovers after getting through a sea of oil.
Sure it sometimes Deflects a little being shiny but that's just the ball saying the angle is not right, with the right angle that ball finishes all the time at the 8-pin position and leaves nothing standing :)
I absolutely love this ball. I am the definition of an amateur bowler, I have been bowling on league for 3 years now, made the switch to the Golden Jackal about 2 months ago and have since posted a new personal best for series (664) and game score(268). My average was 168 when I got this ball, and has been climbing every week since. The lanes I bowl on are heavily oiled, so I needed something more aggressive on the back end, and this ball is definitely that. This ball hits the pins like a wrecking ball, I absolutely recommend this ball to anyone looking for a really good high performance ball.
This is the first ball out of my bag; it's just awesome.
