Motiv Alpha Jackal

Be an Alpha on the lanes with Motiv's high performance Alpha Jackal bowling ball. This ball exceeds expectations by producing more hook but with control and crushing continuation. This ball is an updated version of what it's predecessors offered. This ball has a stronger solid reactive coverstock in the Coercion HV3 than any other Jackal to date. The core in the Alpha Jackal is the Predator V2 asymmetric weight block which maximizes revs as well as track flare through the low RG and high differential. This ball matches up well with bowlers that want traction on heavily oiled lanes or longer oil patterns.

Love the alpha!

The Alpha Jackal,
So as everyone knows by now this is the most recent release in the famous jackal series from Motiv. Normally I do my reviews very shortly after receiving the ball and this time around I wanted to get a bunch of games on the ball so I could be a little more in-depth with what I'm seeing from the motion of the ball and my likes dislikes. So let's start off with my layout. I did my favorite Asym pin-up layout which is a 60*5*30 THis normally gives me good length and still has lots of power down lane.
Using that layout I left the jackal at its box finish which is about a 2k abralon finish. This ball got down the lane much easier than I thought it would be that it has such a strong cover. Shape wise downlane is tougher to explain it's not as long and snappy as the ghost and not nearly as early as a jackal rising. So I've put I dunno about 60 games on this ball so far and man its been pretty solid for me so far. It lets me open the lanes on higher volume house shots and lets me get in the middle of the lane when I move left on dryer lanes.
As I've owned it the ball has got well kinda dirty. That has been easily resolved. Anytime the ball gets some lane shine on it I just hit it with a fresh 2k pad and its back to normal!
All and all this is what you would expect from a High-performance piece of equipment. It loves the heavier volumes and has plenty to offer downlane for such a big hooking ball!

Alpha Jackal

The layout I used on the Alpha Jackal is 50x5x30. I was amazed with how this ball rolled for me. I typically cannot throw many asymmetric cores on house shots due to them using up all their energy in the front part of the lane. For how much the Alpha sees the fronts, it does not quit down lane. This ball is very continuous and will work well on fresh house shots and heavy oil patterns. The Alpha Jackal will be traveling with me for a while as my strongest ball in my bag.

Have an answer to this question?

The Motiv Alpha Jackal would react a bit earlier than the Motiv Trident Abyss, but both balls have a high flare potential.

Question:

How does this ball compare to the Jackal Rising?

12/27/2019 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer:

This ball has a stronger solid reactive coverstock in the Coercion HV3 than any other Jackal to date so it would be a little stronger than the Jackal Rising.

Question:

How would this ball function on a THS condition ?

1/6/2020 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer:

This ball is designed to work in heavy oil only. You may be able to use this ball some at the beginning of the night but you may quickly have to transition to another ball to use because it could get too strong as the lane conditions start to dry and get more medium oil.

Question:

How well does ball do on dryer lanes

1/9/2020 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer:

This would not be a good ball to use in drier conditions. It is designed to work in heavier oil conditions only. This would react too early and too strong on drier lanes.

Question:

How does this ball compare the storm physics

1/10/2020 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer:

These are going to be pretty close but the Motiv Alpha Jackal is going to have just a little stronger hook potential. The duller finish and solid cover of the Alpha Jackal will give it an edge to start hooking just a little earlier on the lanes and this makes it strictly for heavier oil while the Storm Physix may be a little more versatile to go down into some medium oil conditions.

Question:

Would this be a good compliment to the Columbia 300 cahos?

1/12/2020 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer:

This would be a good step up from the Chaos in terms of hook potential so if you feel like you needed something a little stronger on certain conditions then you could start the night with the Alpha Jackal and then change to the Chaos when the lanes start to break down a little.

Question:

I’ve heard other Jackals are illegal in tourneys. Is this one illegal as well?

1/18/2020 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer:

When the Jackal first came out there was an issue and Motiv replaced those Jackals for the customers that had purchased them. Since then, all new Motiv Jackals are made within the legal requirements and have had no issues for tournaments or league play.
