Jackal Ghost


$234.99174 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

    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!

    Amazing ball

    This ball is simply amazing. The back end it has on it blows me away. My bowing style is pretty much straight up and in because I don't have a high rev rate. The first time I threw it, it went straight up the left side and I thought I was going to miss the pocket, but it suddenly grabbed the friction and swerved hard right into the pocket. I was blown away. Be careful though and learn to read the lanes because this ball is very aggressive. But it's a definite must have for your arsenal.

    Great Ball on the Fresh

    This ball is amazing for League or Sport on the fresh with heavier oil patterns. Pushes through pins and doesn't deflect. Strong core and coverstock!

    What a ball!!

    I've wanted to get a Jackal Ghost after hearing the success many bowlers have had with it. This ball is no doubt my go-to ball on heavy oil and I have had a lot of success with it so far. For high school bowling, our home center is very high in volume and is on the longer side in terms of distance, I have been using that ball every time I bowl there and it matches up perfectly. There is an amazing continuation and it reads the mid-lane insanely well.

    Thank you Motiv for making this ball, along with the other amazing bowling balls you guys come out with!
