Motiv Alpha Jackal Bowling Ball Features:

The Alpha Jackal uses the Predator V2 core from the Jackal Ghost and the new Coercion HV3 Solid Reactive coverstock to create Motiv’s newest hook monster. This ball comes out of the box at a 2000 grit sanded finish to give it teeth through the oil, while its low RG core helps it rev up very quickly. The Alpha Jackal provides more hook in the oil than the Golden Jackal, making it an easy choice for longer, heavier volume conditions. Along with the Trident Abyss, which has a smoother ball motion, the Alpha Jackal will provide bowlers with the most total hook in the Motiv product line.


The Jackal reigns supreme on heavy oil. For over half a decade the Jackal line of bowling balls has been the dominant force for heavy oil. The latest addition to the line, the Alpha Jackal pushes the boundaries by providing more hook with the control and devastating continuation that you expect.


Following the success of the Jackal Ghost, Motiv decide it was time to provide bowlers with an updated, stronger, solid reactive cover on the Predator V2 weight block. Featuring the Coercion HV3 Solid Reactive coverstock, the Alpha Jackal is all about creating traction in places where the previous Jackals couldn’t. This is the strongest cover ever used in the Jackal line.


The Predator V2 asymmetric weight block driving the Alpha Jackal boasts a very low RG and loads of differential. This enables you to maximize both revs and track flare.


Players looking for traction on heavy or long oil patterns need to have the Motiv Alpha Jackal in their bag. Expect speed dominant players who already depend on the reliability of the Jackal line to fall in love with the added hook and control of the Alpha edition.
