Motiv Jackal Flash Bowling Ball Features:


The new Jackal Flash is coming Sept. 16th. A new pearl addition to Motiv’s highly successful Jackal line.


The Jackal Flash is Motiv’s newest high performance release. This ball uses the Predator V2 asymmetrical core design that is also used in two other current Motiv balls, the Alpha Jackal and the Jackal Ghost. The Jackal Flash features the all-new Infusion HV Pearl Reactive coverstock that comes out of the box polished to 5000 grit LSP. This combination gave us more total hook than the Ripcord, while still being a ball down from the Alpha Jackal. It was also more angular than both the Forge Fire and the Trident Nemesis.


The Jackal series from MOTIV represents the ultimate level of high performance and the Jackal Flash is an incredible addition. It is the strongest asymmetric pearl that MOTIV has ever developed.  When bowling on higher volumes of oil with a solid asymmetric ball like the Jackal Ghost or the Alpha edition, the ball you transition to should provide similar strength, but be cleaner through the front of the lane with a faster response on the backend. And that is precisely what the Jackal Flash is built for.


The performance technology packed into the 3-color pearl Flash edition is synergistically merged and tuned with a 5000 Grit LSP finish to produce pin-crushing continuation. The asymmetric Predator V2 core has a super low RG and is packed with differential to maximize revs and track flare. This powerful core is encased with the latest Infusion HV Pearl Reactive cover stock from MOTIV to provide the length and powerful angle needed when transitioning on heavy oil patterns.


While designed as an early transition ball for heavy oil, rev dominant bowlers can use the Jackal Flash as the first ball out of their bag. Speed dominant bowlers who cannot usually throw a pearl ball will find it to be very versatile in more moderate conditions.
