Motiv Crimson Jackal Bowling Ball

(2 reviews) Write a Review

Just like a predator in the wilderness, the Crimson Jackal thrives on two critical factors: lightning speed and unmatched agility.  The Crimson Jackal emerges as the apex predator on the lanes, boasting an unprecedented ability to change directions in the blink of an eye and respond to friction faster than any Jackal before.  The Crimson Jackal is a predator with a killer instinct like no other.

We’ve conquered the challenge of creating a coverstock that delivers lightning-fast response in a heavy oil environment with new Propulsion HV+ cover technology.  The strongest Propulsion shell to date, Propulsion HV+ takes performance to the next level.  When paired with the Predator V2 core, this shell guarantees bowlers can wield this monster core even when attacking the lanes at steep angles.

Powering the Crimson Jackal is the Predator V2, a legend in its own right and a dynamic powerhouse.  Previously seen in other great Jackals such as the Jackal Ghost; this fast revving and huge flaring, asymmetric beast is designed to be the strongest core in any bowler’s bag.  Be prepared to dominate the lanes with this force of nature!

When to Use

Speed Dominant Bowlers - For bowlers with more ball speed and lower rpm, the Crimson Jackal is a pearl that can be trusted to create angle and shape when other pearls would be too weak to get started or get around the corner. 

Balanced Bowlers - For balanced bowlers the Crimson Jackal will be the first pearl out of the bag and should allow for steeper angles earlier in blocks.  When other angular balls just seem to get too far down lane before making their move, the Crimson Jackal with the Predator V2 core should provide more mid-lane stability while the Propulsion HV+ cover gives great down lane pop.

Rev Dominant Bowlers - For the bowlers with the lowest speed and/or the highest rev rate the Crimson Jackal gives them an asymmetrical core option that is clean enough through the front of the lane.  So many rev dominant bowlers are forced out of asymmetric cores because they are fast revving and early.  The Crimson Jackal is clean and angular, allowing rev dominant bowlers to use it when there is lower friction, but they want a big pearl asym.

    Core: Predator V2 Asymmetric Type: Asymmetric Coverstock: Propulsion™ HV+ Pearl Reactive Box Finish: 5000 Grit LSS Video: Layout: 60 x 4 3/8 x 40 Strengths Crimson Jackal sits up earlier than Mythic Jackal and Ripcord Launch, however the length it provides is comparable to Nuclear Forge. The Propulsion coverstock is what makes Crimson Jackal versatile on medium to heavier oil patterns, you will appreciate the remarkable total hook it provides. Weaknesses Crimson Jackal is a huge pearl, and the more friction Crimson encounters the bigger reaction you will see out of it. It can provide you with too much hook for drier conditions. Summary Crimson Jackal is user friendly on a variety of patterns, and to anyone that was not fond of the Golden Jackal I would encourage you to accept the mission of putting a Crimson in your bag. Your game will thank you for it. K.C. White II Motiv Staff Royal Flush Apparel Staff

    The Crimson Jackal is the new big asymmetrical pearl the MOTIV line needed. The cover on this ball is so clean but is also very responsive to friction. The Predator V2 core in this ball allows the ball to blend the pattern out a little while maintaining angle into the pocket. This ball will definitely come in handy at tournaments or league when weaker solids are starting to become too much. Layout - 60x4.75x30 PAP - 4 5/8" Over 1" Up
