Additional product information:

The Crimson Jackal thrives on two critical factors: lightning speed and unmatched agility. The Crimson Jackal emerges as the apex predator on the lanes, boasting an unprecedented ability to change directions in the blink of an eye and respond to friction faster than any Jackal before. The Crimson Jackal is a predator with a killer instinct like no other.

We’ve conquered the challenge of creating a coverstock that delivers lightning-fast response in a heavy oil environment with new Propulsion HV+ cover technology. The strongest Propulsion shell to date, Propulsion HV+ takes performance to the next level. When paired with the Predator V2 core, this shell guarantees bowlers can wield this monster core even when attacking the lanes at steep angles.

Powering the Crimson Jackal is the Predator V2, a legend in its own right, and a dynamic powerhouse. Previously seen in other great Jackals such as the Jackal Ghost; this fast revving and huge flaring, asymmetric beast is designed to be the strongest core in any bowler’s bag. Be prepared to dominate the lanes with this force of nature! 

When to Use

Speed Dominant Bowlers - For bowlers with more ball speed and lower rpm, the Crimson Jackal is a pearl that can be trusted to create angle and shape when other pearls would be too weak to get started or get around the corner. 

Balanced Bowlers - For balanced bowlers the Crimson Jackal will be the first pearl out of the bag and should allow for steeper angles earlier in blocks.  When other angular balls just seem to get too far down lane before making their move, the Crimson Jackal with the Predator V2 core should provide more mid-lane stability while the Propulsion HV+ cover gives great down lane pop.

Rev Dominant Bowlers - For the bowlers with the lowest speed and/or the highest rev rate the Crimson Jackal gives them an asymmetrical core option that is clean enough through the front of the lane.  So many rev dominant bowlers are forced out of asymmetric cores because they are fast revving and early.  The Crimson Jackal is clean and angular, allowing rev dominant bowlers to use it when there is lower friction, but they want a big pearl asym.

    Best Pearl Jackal to date

    Posted by Eric George on Mar 13th 2024

    Once again Motiv improved on a pearl version of the Jackal! By far the Cleanest Asymmetric that Motiv offers in their current lineup. I broke the cover with a used 2000 pad because it was a couple feet too clean out of the box for my liking. The Predator V2 wrapped in the Propulsion HV Pearl makes the corner with ease without loosing hitting power from any part of the lane. Once the lane starts to break down this is my go-to right after the Ambush or the Raptor Fury. Another great purpose-built ball form Motiv. Eric George Motiv Staff

    Awesome Service

    When I want a new ball, I always order from buddies drilled. They always do an awesome job, each ball feels the same fit wise. And drilled as requested. Crimson Jackal is a nice fit below my Raptor Fury.

    Crimson Jackal

    Posted by K. Matthew Byrd (Motiv Staffer) on Jan 15th 2024

    Hand: Right-Handed Ball Weight: 15 lbs. Rev Rate: 500 RPM Ball Speed: 18 Mph Tilt: 10 Rotation: 45 PAP: 5.125” over and .125” up Layout: 55 x 5 ½ x 30 (Dual Angle) The newest Crimson Jackal features the new Propulsion HV+ cover stock. This new cover is super-fast responding even in heavier oil conditions. The proven Predator V2 core is the motor that drives this ball with incredible continuation and power when entering the pin deck. On house patterns the Crimson Jackal picks up in the mid-lane but continues to get further down the lane without losing energy. On sport patterns I can play closer to the friction and keep my angles tight. With drilling the Crimson Jackal slightly weaker for me it’s more versatile. The Crimson Jackal will be in my league bag and in my tournament bag for a long time.
