Jackal Ghost


$234.99172 Read Reviews

The Jackal has been resurrected! The new Jackal Ghost is here to reign terror on heavy oil. With paranormal performance, it delivers more total hook potential than any previous Jackal with no loss in continuation. It's scary good! The Predator V2 weight block, first used on the Jackal LE, is now at the core of the Jackal Ghost. Featuring a low RG and loads of differential, this asymmetric design is easy to rev and produces massive track flare.

Combining the physics of the Predator V2 with the chemistry of the new Coercion HFS (High Friction Solid) cover stock, the Jackal Ghost elevates heavy oil performance to a new level. Coercion HFS is the most aggressive cover stock to date on a bowling ball in the Jackal product line. Turned with a 3000 Grit Lss Finish, bowlers will see both excellent mid-lane read and unbelievable continuation.

Obviously the Jackal Ghost will be a go-to ball for bowlers that want to see more hook without sacrificing continuation on higher volumes of oil. It will also be ideal for bowlers that have a low rev rate or higher ball speeds.


  • Speed Dominant - For a bowler with high ball speed or those with lower rev rates, the Jackal Ghost serves as an outstanding benchmark option due to the cleaner cover and controllable motion down lane.  The versatility of drilling offered by the Predator V2 also makes the Ghost a great benchmark piece for speed dominant bowlers. 
  • Balanced - Players who are balanced in their speed to rev rate ratio find the Ghost to be a must have for fresh oil and longer patterns.  The Jackal Ghost is ideal for balanced bowlers to use in a variety of lower friction environments. 
  • Rev Dominant - Over the past several years AJ Johnson and EJ Tackett have proven that the Jackal Ghost is a must have for the rev dominant player.  Due to the coverstock being moderately clean, a rev dominant player is able to use the Jackal Ghost without worrying about it “burning up” or getting too forward down lane like so many heavy oil asymmetrical balls

    Great ball

    The jackal ghost was the first ball I purchased after taking a 6 year break from bowling and it did not disappoint. I was able to shoot a 254 with the Ghost and I am more than pleased with how this ball reacts. Definitely a staple in the bag when there’s a fresh oil pattern im faced with

    There are multiple reasons this ball has been in the current lineup for so many years. It is very versatile for being a big asymmetric ball. I mainly use it on house shots, but it's valuable and offers a consistent read on sport conditions as well. The carry is the difference maker for me. Light hits, high hits, it carries as well as anything I've ever thrown. Overall, this one is a winner.

    Bread and butter

    When I go play in a league this is my bread and butter. It was my first Motiv bowling ball that I purchased and I love it.

    Don't know all the lingo

    I am only a recreational bowler, bowling only a handful of times a year. All that is about to change. After doing some serious homework, and watching many video reviews, I pulled the trigger and bought it. I am a high speed, low rev bowler, and the very first throw with ball was a strike. I am still working out the kinks in my delivery, but I love this ball.

    Jackal Ghost - GOAT of Bowling Balls??

    WOW! That's all that really needs to be said about a ball that has been in production for so long! Although this ball needs oil on the lanes, the houses near me are PERFECT for it. I'm a 2 handed bowler, about 500-520 revs at around 16.5-17mph. This ball CRANKS!
