Motiv Jackal Legacy

The legend of the Jackal goes on with the Motiv Jackal Legacy Solid. This high-performance bowling ball is a hook-beast! The Jackal Legacy was designed to handle the heaviest oil conditions that a bowler might face. This ball uses the versatile and strong Predator V2 core and pairs it with the Coercion MXC (MaXimum Continuation) Solid Reactive coverstock to produce the strongest Motiv bowling ball to date. The Predator V2 core has been used in previous Jackal balls but the Jackal Legacy introduces the Coercion MXC Solid Reactive coverstock. This coverstock provides outstanding traction in heavy oil as well as a strong down lane motion with continuation. This ball will be powerful, provide tons of traction on heavy oil, give a smooth motion, as well as a controllable shape that helps lessen the over/under reaction on wet/dry lane conditions.

A new legacy is born

The Jackal Legacy was a surprise for me, taking a big Assym core and wrapping it with a super strong shell in the past meant closed angles and a ball that labors to get back up the hill. Then I threw this one and my preconceived notions were shattered. The Jackal Legacy cleared the fronts then dug hard in the mids and made the corner very similar to the Jackal Ghost. It is one of those balls that I throw a couple times and put it away because I don’t want to wear it out, it was that good. Best way to describe the ball is a jacked-up version of the Jackal Ghost. I have it 5-7 boards stronger than the Ghost on the House shot.

whats the lane play difference between Legacy and Alpha ? Is the coverstock that much different ?

Have an answer to this question?


They both have the same weight block and the same finish out of the box so the difference it really going to be in the coverstock. The new Jackal Legacy will have a slightly stronger coverstock but in performance they will be very very similar overall. They are both also designed for heavy oil only.

on fresh oil on a THS this ball should be good for a game or two I,m thinking

Have an answer to this question?


This ball is designed to work in heavier oil conditions so it could work that first game just after fresh oil is put down. However, this is a very aggressive ball so I am not sure how long through that first game you would be able to continue to use this if there are several bowlers in the league and if they are playing a similar line.
