Additional product information:

The newest predator in the vicious Jackal line, the Jackal™ Ambush will catch opponents off guard with its strength and control of its environment. This ultra-strong beast pushes the boundaries of ball motion and hook in oil, providing a smooth and controlled ball motion, even in the heaviest concentrations. The Jackal Ambush allows you to go on the hunt, knowing that you have the strength behind you to dominate.

The Jackal™ Ambush introduces the release of a brand new cover stock system; Leverage Solid Reactive. Leverage is formulated to be smoother down lane and stronger in the oil than the Coercion cover stock systems previously used for this ball motion. This is the most aggressive and cover stock system ever developed in the MOTIV ball line.

Paired with this new system is the proven Predator™ V2 core. Used in the legendary Jackal™ Ghost and the Alpha Jackal used by Wesley Low to shoot 900, the Predator V2 is ideal in heavy oil conditions when a high performance, asymmetrical core is necessary. The low RG and high differential give a fast spinning and dynamic core design, capable of huge amounts flare.  

When to Use:

Speed Dominant Bowlers - For speed dominant bowlers, traction and guaranteed hook are so important. The Jackal Ambush is a must for bowlers who are speed dominant. With oil volumes increasing, bowlers with a lot of speed or lower rev rates benefit from increased differential, asymmetry, and stronger cores. The Jackal Ambush checks all of the boxes for bowlers needing help creating shape on the lanes.

Balanced Bowlers - Balanced bowlers will use the Jackal Ambush when in need of the most control and traction possible. For balanced bowlers competing on very high volumes or looking to start further in on a house pattern, the Jackal Ambush will do the trick, offering a smooth and predictable motion.

Rev Dominant BowlersFor rev dominant bowlers, the Jackal Ambush is a control ball for the absolute lowest friction environments. For these bowlers needing control, a shinier finish may be necessary, but the control offered by the Leverage Solid Reactive coverstock paired with the Predator V2 could be advantageous if angular pieces feel like they go everywhere on fresh oil.

    Jackal Ambush

    Posted by Mark Wilson on Dec 5th 2022

    The Jackal Ambush is the newest ball in our line and fits in the Heavy oil controllable category. Bowlers will find this ball stronger in the oil than the Jackal Ghost with still having a strong and controllable lane motion. I’ve found the Jackal Ambush most useable when the lane is fresh and you’re forced to use stronger slower pieces. The Jackal Ambush has the Predator V2 core. The Predator V2 core gives the Jackal Ambush a strong and round down lane motion for Heavy volumes of oil. The Jackal Ambush has the Leverage Solid reactive cover, the Jackal Ambush is designed to be stronger in the oil. Is the strongest cover stock we’ve ever developed.
