Question:

Is this the replacement ball for the Jackel Carnage?

7/25/2016 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer:

Hello! Yes, this ball is essentially the replacement for the Carnage. It will be a fairly similar ball overall.

Answer:

No, this is not the replacement for the Jackal or Jackal Carnage as part of Motiv's replacement program for the two balls previously banned by the USBC. The replacement to be shipped to the pro shops of people who previously purchased & filled out the replacement form on Motiv's website is called the Jackal LE, which by what I've seen so far will be similar to the Jackal Carnage & will be sold in limited quantities to the public. The Trident is by spec, similar in reaction to the original Jackal.

Question:

How much different is trident from roto grip no rules.

9/19/2016 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer:

When comparing the two balls we like to look at a couple of the main differences. The coverstock and finish on the Trident will make the Trident read a little later on the lane than the Roto Grip No Rules. They are both going to work well in heavier oil and even though the Trident goes a little longer on the lanes, it looks like it could be a little stronger hook overall.

Question:

Why was the Jacklel banned in the usbc for???

10/2/2016 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer:

Hello. The revocation comes after USBC determined that the Jackal and Jackal Carnage balls do not comply with current specifications and requirements in the USBC Equipment Specifications and Certifications Manual. USBC testing showed a significant percentage of the Jackal and Jackal Carnage, both produced by Motiv, exceeded the maximum 0.060" differential radius of gyration standard specification during spot checks of bowling balls in the field.

Question:

I sent in 4 bowling balls in March last year and followed all the directions that Motiv posted but the people at Motiv say they don't have the ball I sent in. I sent in balls for other people and now none have a chance to get the replacement balls. Why do we have to lose our money on these balls if we bought them, should you not find a way to replacement those balls also. These guys are old bowlers and dont really know a lot about computers and their getting screwed on these expensive bowling balls, and that aint right.

10/6/2016 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer:

I believe you are referring to the Motiv Jackal and Motiv Jackal Carnage bowling balls. Motiv is handling this issue directly with the people who purchased those bowling balls so Bowling.com would not have any information on this. I would continue to check with Motiv on this and if you have a tracking number to reference when you shipped them back you may bring this information to their attention.

Question:

I have not seen this ball with a drilling pin down (under) position. With ball speed around 14. can you give me an idea of the reaction I will see on THS please?

10/13/2016 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer:

The Trident is rated for heavier oil and the cover and finish are designed to help the ball to start hooking in the mid lane and continue very strong on the backend with a large smooth hook reaction. With your ball speed, it could give the ball more time on the lane to grip and hook so it would actually make this ball hook a little stronger. The drilling options can tweak this a little but it will not change the reaction so much that you get a completely different reaction. Some patterns will give it a little more length and other patterns may be designed for more hook but this would only be small changes from what the ball was designed to do. If you were to order this, I would talk to your driller about possibly getting more length on the layout because that may help with your ball speed.

Question:

How would this ball compare to the Storm Code Black?

11/14/2016 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer:

To compare the two bowling balls we need to compare the coverstock, finish, and weight block. The Trident is a Hybrid coverstock and the Code Black is a Pearl coverstock so the Trident will want to read earlier because of the coverstock. Also, the Trident has a 3000 grit finish compared to the 1500grit polished finish on the Code Black which also make the Trident want to read earlier on the lanes. Finally on the weight block, the Trident weight block should help it roll a little earlier to give it more time to react and hook on the lanes. The Code black has a slightly stronger weight block but because the weight block and everything else on the Code Black is designed to go longer, it will have less time to hook. The more aggressive ball out of the box will be the Trident and the longer backend ball will be the Code Black.
