The Jackal™ series from MOTIV® has certainly made a big impact in the bowling industry and its reputation for massive performance continues with the Jackal™ Legacy. This hook-beast is designed to handle the heaviest oil conditions any bowler will encounter.

Utilized often in recent years, the Predator™ V2 has proven to be a versatile, strong, and reliable high-performance core. It is used in the Jackal™ Ghost to provide a fantastic benchmark asymmetrical shape and in the more recent Jackal™ Flash to produce the most angular Jackal™ ever made. It also powered the Alpha Jackal™ used by PBA® professional Wesley Low to roll the first-ever sanctioned 900 series with a MOTIV® ball. And now, it is being merged with Coercion™ MXC Solid Reactive cover stock to create the strongest Jackal™ to roll off the MOTIV® production line.

The introduction of Coercion™ MXC (MaXimum Continuation) Solid Reactive cover stock sent waves through the sport. Without a doubt, this is one of the strongest covers in bowling today and what makes it truly special is not just the unbelievable traction! Until now, bowling balls that provided incredible traction in oil were greatly limited because the energy used up front adversely impacted the ability to continue down lane. Coercion™ MXC is most impressive because it gives the solid Jackal™ Legacy superior traction in oil and strong down lane motion with continuation previously thought impossible.

Out of the box, bowlers can expect the powerful solid Jackal™ Legacy to provide loads of traction in heavy oil, a smooth motion, and a controllable shape that minimizes over/under reaction on wet/dry conditions. Obviously, a ball this strong will be of particular interest to speed dominant bowlers on a variety of conditions.

When To Use:

  • Speed Dominant - The Jackal Legacy will allow speed dominant players who struggle to see mid lane read with down lane continuation to play their "A Game" with confidence.  This is truly a ball made to suit the strengths of the speed dominant player.  The Coercion MXC is already known for its incredible mid-lane read and continuation, but when powered by a strong and proven asymmetric core, the results are undeniable.  This is truly a speed dominant player's dream.
  • Balanced - WIth an incredibly aggressive core/cover combination and the well known versatility of the Predator V2 core, a balanced bowler now has a ball to use when rev dominant players are using the Jackal Ghost.  The Jackal Legacy makes a shape comparable to the Jackal Ghost, but with more total hook.  A balanced bowler will be able to use the Jackal Legacy on fresh patterns where the Ghost is just too clean and when players who have more rev rate are striking with the Ghost.
  • Rev Dominant - The Jackal Legacy is a ball that a rev dominant bowler will carry in their bag so that they ALWAYS have something no matter how much oil they encounter.  This is the strongest Jackal ever, and Rev Dominant players can compete with the knowledge that they always have "hook in a box" waiting for them with the Legacy.

    WHY did I wait

    So I heard that this ball was being discontinued so I ordered one.

    This thing is awesome. Out Of Box, this ball rolled so nice for me. It reminded me of my Jackal LE from years ago. It has good read through the oil, but holds off and gives a nice rounded turn. It hits the pocket and doesn't over drive leaving 9 pins. What it does do is destroy the rack though. I've thrown multiple mid to high 700's with this ball and my 2nd 800 with it. I had 2 weeks in a row that I was one ball away from a 300 with it. (damn nerves).

    If you have the opportunity to pick one up, don't be afraid to.

    As compared to the Ambush, for me, it's 2.5-3 boards weaker. It's about 2.5-3 boards stronger than the Mythic.

    Will I carry this ball every week? Probably not, but will I ever get rid of it, also probably not!

    First ball out of bag

    I first started league and tournament bowling about a year ago my first ball was the Hammer Black Widow 2.0 and then I started to get more into bowling and Motiv had just released the Iron Forge and that's what got me hooked on the Motiv brand so I needed to find a solid ball that would perform like the BW and that's when I was giving the opportunity to bowl with the Jackal Legacy and haven't looked back since. Both league night the Legacy is the first ball out of my bag and has helped me increase my average by well over 15 points! Keep up the great work look forward to be able to add the Sky Raptor to my arsenal

    I love this ball

    I have not thrown a ball as smooth as this. When I hit the pocket I could not be happier with the results.

    Amazing ball

    This ball is amazing, I am a speed dominant one handed bowler. I'm talking 20+ mph, and I recently had to drop down to 14lbs due to a wrist injury but let me tell you this ball will hook like a demon even at high speeds. I love this ball!!!
