REACTION

The Jackal Rising is another step forward in the evolution of the Jackal line. The Rising takes what made the Ghost such a huge success and improves upon it. This ball hooks a lot! It reads early and continues hooking across the entire line. The Rising isn't as forward off the spot which will allow bowlers to get in and play steeper angles on heavier oil. This adds to overall versatility. With a strong slow response, the Rising also thrives when playing up the lane (shallow angles) on heavier oil. Being able to hook in oil and not overreact off the friction, the Rising is able to be utilized by a multitude of different styles.

COMPARISONS

In my Jackal Rising ball motion video I compared it to the Jackal Ghost, Trident Quest, and the Forza SS. The Rising is a full zone (5 boards) stronger than Ghost which came as a pleasant surprise to me. The other difference I saw between the Rising and Ghost were how they responded to friction from steeper angles. The Rising was able to recover and continue through the pins from deeper inside than the Ghost. The Ghost is much more forward off the spot. As for the Quest and SS, they both have less overall hook than the Ghost and by extension the Jackal Rising. Check out the video to see how all the shapes stack up against each other in the ball comparison section.

SUMMARY

The Jackal Rising hooks. It hooks a lot. Not only does it hook, but it can carry from steep angles which is something I can't say for most big, early, asymm balls. After I drilled it up and got to throw it for the first time, I kept moving left to try and leave a flat 10. I'd strike, move left, strike, move left, strike, move left, and kept on striking. I couldn't get the ball to flat 10 on the house pattern I was bowling on. Given the fact I bowl on old wood lanes, I was completely stunned it never happened. The Jackal Rising is much more versatile than one might think. It rolls fantastic in heavier oil playing up the lane, but if you have to move in and open up the lane, your carry won't suffer. I've drilled two so far and have another on the way. Lastly, the cover responds extremely well to surface changes and polish. While the overall motion doesn't change drastically, polish will allow you to stay in the same zone for much longer. If you are looking for a strong versatile asymm, do yourself a favor and get a Jackal Rising!

The new Jackal Rising has a tweaked core and coverstock from the Jackal Ghost. The combination of the two make this ball pretty special. Compared to the Ghost, the Rising is earlier but stronger overall which makes it have HIGHER HOOK POTENTIAL. This ball does not disappoint. Although the ball is smooth rolling, its is a very strong arc. For those bowling on heavier oil or flatter oil patterns, this ball should be in the bag at all times. The reaction of this ball gives me a shape that I haven't seen in quite some time. Being an avid tournament bowler, I can see this ball staying in my bag for a variety of patterns. This ball is very strong on the dry parts of the lane and still gives a lot of hook in the heavier oils. For those with higher ball speed, this Rising does not go through the breakpoint. This ball just continues so well for a high performance ball as well!

The Jackal Rising is a great ball for those of us that want to stay right & not play real deep on heavier oil patterns. I drilled mine alittle on the weaker side w/2.5" pin-to-PAP & MB in the thumb. This ball gets good length & don't read the mid-lane too soon. Very smooth throughout the lane. No big "hockey stick" jerking motion w/this ball. Love the readability & predictability of this ball. One of the first balls I go to when there is heavier volume or pattern length of 41'+. It's a great addition to the Jackal line & you owe it to yourself to try this one out. Stay MOTIV-ated !!

Motiv’s new release the Jackal Rising is a strong asymmetrical ball designed for heavy oil. This ball is engineered to slow down quickly to help you combat heavy oil conditions and big over/under shots with a smooth backend reaction. The Coercion HV2 coverstock with the Predator V3 core really digs into the oil with impressive power and continuation through the pins. Because this ball is smooth, I feel it will get a lot of use and a must for your bag.

Review:

The Jackal is back and stronger than ever before! This strong asymmetrical ball is a great choice for bowlers like me who are speed dominant and are looking for maximum hook potential out of a ball. This ball will cut through the higher volume oil patterns and is great for blending the over/under as you start to transition left on your typical house shot without losing carry and hit power. The NEW Coercion HV2 (High Volume 2nd Edition) cover creates more friction and has been tuned for the Jackal Rising with a 2000 Grit LSS finish to maximize hook potential. No matter what pattern I’m bowling on from House to Sport, I know the Rising has the traction and hit power I need to deliver from multiple angles on the lane. Compared to my Jackal Ghost, the Rising is earlier in the lane and gives me more control in the oil and responds appropriately to the dry. I’m looking forward to the strength and versatility of this ball with my next string of tournaments in the New Year.

With this ball having the ability to carve through oil I wanted this ball to roll early and have a quick response. This ball allows me to play very angular when facing heavy oil. Being a speed dominate player(20.4mph) this ball never stops its motion and with the Predator V3 core I know this ball has the continuous motion to punish the pocket. What I really like about the Coercion HV@ Reactive Cover and core combination is how it can deal with the over under conditions when the oil pushes down. It's a TRUE FINISHER!!!

Highly Recommend!!

What was once a Ghost is now Rising to the living. The Jackal Rising is the next evolution of the Jackal line. The new Coercion HV2 coverstock (finished at 2000LSS) is more controlled off of the downlane spot than the Ghost which is created by its sharper teeth; this allows it to grip the midlane sooner. The Predator V3 core (2.47RG, .055Diff) has more intermediate differential than the Predator V2; this makes the ball rev up even more, creating more flare and more motion potential. Boasting these two new innovations, this ball is meant to tackle the heaviest of oil conditions. Out of the box mine showed how early it could hook yet it still did not lose the line-characteristic of superior drive through the pins. I saw early read in the mids, a controlled motion at the breakpoint, and devastating motion into the pit. For my typical house shot it was a bit strong so I polished it up while leaving the grit untouched. This gave me a bit more length through the heads yet retained a similar overall motion. Even with the slightly increased breakpoint angle due to the retained energy I never felt like the Rising was going to do anything unpredictable. For me this ball is best utilized early where there is plenty of oil and my angles are straighter. Once I start opening up the transition to the Trident Quest is almost seamless. If a heavy oil buster is what you need, the Rising is a great option.

This ball is the newest introduction into the Jackal line of bowling balls. The MOTIV Jackal Rising features the new Coercion HV2 coverstock combined with the Predator V3 core. It's strong in the front of the lane, but yet smooth enough through it that the ball does not burn up. It reads the mid lane for change of direction and retains enough energy for great continuation through the pins.

It will be a great fit in your bag on medium to heavy oil. I have the used Rising on everything from high to medium volume sports patterns, as well as on your typical house shots. It’s strong and continuous enough to handle the sports patterns and blends out the house patterns like nothing I've ever thrown.

My Jackal Rising is laid out pin up above my ringer finger, CG slightly shifted right and extra hole down. Since this ball's release it is quickly becoming one of my favorites. This ball is so SMOOTH that it allows me to keep my angles closed and play up the lane. As the lanes open up its not afraid to come around the corner. Another winning BIG ball in the MOTIV LINE.

Previously I only owned a Jackal LE and I was not disappointed with that ball so I felt very good about drilling a Rising. My first test was on a 42 foot pattern with moderate volume. I was able to burn a hole for myself while everyone else was skidding way past the break point. People kept coming over to ask me what ball I was using. I wanted to keep it a secret but the dog was out of the bag :). After 6 games I was 231 over and the ball was still holding and hitting. It had a better read than the LE but the same hitting power. I'm not sure how it will do on a shorter pattern but there are other Motiv balls for that. I know you are thinking he has to say this he's on Motiv Staff. Well at the time I was not and I would use this ball whether I was on staff or not. There are many great heavy oil balls out there today but you can't go wrong with the Rising. So if your looking to buy your first Motiv or you already have one don't be afraid you will get striking results. Good luck and good bowling!

Not the strongest ball as advertised. I pre ordered this thinking it would create more area then my Ghost, but the Rising is the straightest ball in my arsenal. This isn’t a bad thing because I can use it when the shot is burnt out. It still has good hitting power. I’m thinking there might be something wrong with the first batch of ball that was released for the Jackal Rising. On my scale of hook it would be a 2 on a scale of 1 to 10.

I drilled my Jackal Rising 70 x 3 3/8 x 20 with an X-hole 3" down my VAL from my PAP.

The reasoning behind this layout was to have a more stable drilling that would fall out in my arsenal in between my pin down and pin up ghosts. I had a hard time in my progression of when my pin down ghost would lose energy and my pin up ghost would see the friction too soon.

In general, the shape of the Rising is similar to the ghost but reads the lane a solid 2 or 3 feet earlier. It is slightly smoother than the ghosts and will call it more arc like where my ghosts are more angular. This results in more overall hook from the Rising. I can open up my angles in the front of the lane a little more than with my ghosts and not have to worry about it reading the friction early. I would say that the Rising is more versatile than the ghost. I have used it on patterns ranging in 36 to 47 feet of distance with varying ratios. I have yet to find a pattern this ball doesn't give me a look on the fresh with.

Highly Recommend.

Review:
The Jackal Rising is a beast. I compared my Jackal Rising to my Jackal Ghost which had a similar layout. I immediately noticed how much earlier the Rising was versus the Ghost. Not only did it begin to shape earlier, but it has a little more backend than the Ghost. For a ball of this strength, there is no energy lost going through the pins.

Likes:
Hook, baby, hook!!
Versatile cover
Continuation

Dislikes:
None

Summary:
This Jackal Rising flat out hooks. Along with the Jackal Ghost, this is a mean one-two combination. Especially for those that encounter longer and/or heavier oil patterns, the Jackal Rising is an absolute must-have. For other times when lanes get tighter in the midlane and/or downlane, the Jackal Rising’s strong performance will show.

NOT AS ADVERTISED OR SOMETHING IS WRONG WITH THE ONE I GOT!! This is the first Motiv ball I've ever not liked. I'm running nearly all Motiv equipment right now and had high hopes for this ball. My Jackal Ghost is dead and I bought the Motiv Rising to replace it. After the first drilling 70x4x40, I didn't get any movement or backend. Had the ball plugged and redrilled less than 15 games into it to 70x5x70 and the ball still doesn't cover near the boards that are claimed. My Trident Quest covers more boards drilled exactly the same. I have tried 3 different fresh patterns and all had the same result. Will try to add more surface, but very disappointing. I submitted a review to Motiv as well and looks like they censor them because it hasn't shown up on the site yet.

When the nature of competition continues to become much fiercer and is in a constant state of change, what must a dominate predator do to maintain its dominate? What must a predator to ensure that it does not become the prey? The Predator must change, it must evolve, it must RISE! The dominance seen from the Jackal Ghost cannot go unmentioned, the Ghost revived the Jackal line! With respect to the Ghost, MOTIV knew that to ensure the Jackal maintained its dominance on the lane, some fresh blood was needed. Enter the Jackal Rising, evolution of the monster that is the Jackal line!

The Jackal Rising presents us with new versions of both the Coercion cover stock in the Coercion HV2 cover and a revamped Predator V3 core. This revamped combination gives those who possess this piece maximum hook, power and continuation on the heaviest of oil patterns. The beauty of all this power in just one piece is the fact that it allows us to really blend out patterns to avoid those lovely water/dry conditions.

I find it difficult to come up with the correct words to best describe how sick the Jackal Rising is on the lanes. The best thing I can offer is a story of a competition I was recently in that the Rising bailed me out of some serious trouble. In the qualifying round of the tournament, all through practice I found a shot that allowed me to keep it simple, up the outside part of the lane with the Forza SS. I felt that if I could play there and stay left (left handed mind you) for the majority of the tournament, I could run away with it. The light came on for scoring and… well after multiple pocket corners and a pocket 7-10 to start the day off with a 185 in a scoring pace of 220s+… that game plan was scrapped. The next game, I decided move everything 5 boards left and took the Jackal Rising out of the bag and quickly unloaded back to back 270s to throw myself right in the top 3 of the tournament and continue from there. The Rising allowed me to open up the lane and generate some angle to snap out the corners. The combo of the aggressive cover stock and core allowed me to give the pocket away and have confidence in the decision with the raw power and continuation it offered. Even on shots that I put a little too much muscle into the shot due being slightly amped up, this piece still contained enough punch from the cover stock and weight block to still have the strength to not only to make the return but still the continuation to carry!
