Additional product information:

The JackalTM series from MOTIV® represents the ultimate level of high performance and the JackalTM Flash is an incredible addition. It is the strongest asymmetric pearl that MOTIV® has ever developed.

When bowling on higher volumes of oil with a solid asymmetric ball like the JackalTM Ghost or the Alpha edition, the ball you transition to should provide similar strength, but be cleaner through the front of the lane with a faster response on the backend. And that is precisely what the JackalTM Flash is built for.

The performance technology packed into the 3-color pearl Flash edition is synergistically merged and tuned with a 5000 Grit LSP finish to produce pin-crushing continuation. The asymmetric Predator® V2 core has a super low RG and is packed with differential to maximize revs and track flare. This powerful core is encased with the latest InfusionTM HV Pearl Reactive cover stock from MOTIV® to provide the length and powerful angle needed when transitioning on heavy oil patterns.

While designed as an early transition ball for heavy oil, rev dominant bowlers can use the JackalTM Flash as the first ball out of their bag. Speed dominant bowlers who cannot usually throw a pearl ball will find it to be very versatile in more moderate conditions.

    This is a great ball. It makes a nice quick move to the pocket when it sees the friction

    Jackal Flash

    The first tri-colored ball from Motiv!! The layout I used on the Jackal Flash is 70x4x20. This is my typical asym pearl layout. The Jackal Flash has a similar motion to the Trident Nemesis. However, this ball outperforms the Trident Nemesis when there is a heavier concentration of oil on the lane. The Nemesis tended to want to roll forward when it saw oil. That is not the case with the Flash. The Flash will be good for when you need to play with open angles. It is also the perfect ball to transition too once the Alpha Jackal does not want to corner the right way.

    Angle and Power!!!I really love how the Jackal Flash stores energy. As I move more and more inside it never loses carry! This ball is definitely a great ball for longer patterns and drenched house shots.

    The Jackal Flash features the Infusion Cover has turned into my most favorite Pearl Cover. I compared my Jackal Flash alongside the Alpha Jackal. While having similar layouts on both, I knew my angles would have to be more opened when throwing my Jackal Flash. I was mentally prepped knowing how fast the Infusion Cover likes to cover as seen with the Forge Fire and Supra just to name a couple. My immediate reaction was a big WOW after seeing I was approx. 7-8 boards left with my feet from the Alpha Jackal. While there was a defined friction spot on the lane, I was able to go a few more boards further with ease and the Jackal Flash did not want to quit on the backend.
    The Jackal Flash is something everybody can use. What I love the most about it is when there is a defined hook spot downlane, I can stay ahead of the field getting left and project the Jackal Flash to that spot while having the confidence in it to hook back to the pocket. For a piece that is this strong overall, both cover and core, the Jackal Flash still has plenty of power getting through the pins. For the tournament players especially, this is a huge piece to have in the arsenal and pairs well with many styles. The Jackal Flash has that WOW factor both on and off the lanes.

    It's been a minute since I instantly clicked with a ball as much as I did the Flash. The shape is one that's been missing for me that the Nemesis just couldn't quite fulfil. I always found the Nemesis to be much better with surface because of how clean it was, but the Flash has such a ridiculous footprint in oil that I can throw it on higher volume shots without issue. This ball is the perfect blend of clean and fast response, and is what I would consider Motiv's best high end pearl since the OG Primal Rage, and their best high end asym pearl ever.

    Layout: 65x4.5x35


    I can throw this on lighter volume house shots without having to worry about it seeing it in the heads and just totally stopping, and heavier shots where I need the ball to gain traction on the back part of the lane. I shot 300 in a wood house where I've historically struggled finding the right part of the lane to get the ball started. It was clean enough to get through the heads, but quick enough response to turn the corner at the end of the pattern.


    I used this ball an entire block on highway to hell and averaged in the mid 230s effortlessly (I am not THAT good of a bowler, so this was kinda neat).

    I used this ball on 44' PBA Billy Hardwick later in the practice session, felt it came into play once I had to move left and keep the ball closer to the headpin.

    The only issues I've run into is that like any shiny ball, its more speed sensitive than the solids, as bowling balls need to slow down to hook. I also struggled to play straighter with it, but that's not really what it was intended for. We have Ghosts for that :)

    Jackal Flash Ball Review

    Posted by mark wilson on Oct 4th 2020

    The new Jackal Flash is the strongest asymmetric pearl that MOTIV has ever made. The Jackal Flash is great when you hit transition and need something cleaner through the front than the Jackal Ghost or Alpha Jackal. The Jackal Flash has similar strength to the two but has a way faster back end response on the backend.

    The Jackal Flash is our first ball with a 3-color cover. The Jackal Flash has our Predator V2 core with a lower RG and has a differential to maximize flare and revs. The cover comes as 5000 grit LSP and is the newest Infusion HV Pearl Reactive. Which is designed to provide length and extreme angle for when transitioning on heavy oil patterns.

    The Jackal Flash is designed as an early transition ball for heavy oil. Rev dominant players can use the Jackal Flash as the first ball out of their bag in the right conditions. Speed dominant players who cannot usually throw a pearl ball will find it to be very versatile in moderate conditions.

    More than just a flash!

    Posted by Mark on Oct 1st 2020

    Im liking this ball everyday more and more. Clean cover, but not so clean it doesnt read the mid lane. I use it on a fresh house shot an it was awesome. As the lanes transtion i continue to move in. The ball got better as i chase the oil in. And when i got to the dry a little early it didnt just jump left. It smooth out and smoked the pocket.
