Meet the Mythic Jackal, a new kind of hybrid. Our engineering goal with this ball was to create as much angle as possible while still providing true heavy oil performance attributes. So often, shiny asyms are only ideal for moderate conditions so we set out to create a different kind of animal. Now, when high volume patterns begin to transition and you need to create angle, the Mythic Jackal with 2:1 hybrid technology delivers exactly what you need.
The Predator™ V2 is the gold standard for high performance core design and it’s at the center of the Mythic Jackal. It’s the same core found in the Jackal Ghost, the longest running asymmetrical bowling ball in the industry, now celebrating a 5-year anniversary! This low RG / high differential asymmetric core has never before been combined with a hybrid cover stock on a worldwide Jackal release. The Mythic is the first.
The Mythic Jackal is also the first to feature Infusion HV 2:1 Hybrid Reactive cover technology. This means the shell features twice as much pearl as solid cover material. This enables it to create incredible angle down lane without completely sacrificing traction. The 33% load of solid cover gives the Mythic Jackal a strong footprint on the lane in heavy oil while the 67% load of pearl yields a powerful backend motion.
When To Use:
Speed Dominant Bowlers: Bowlers with speed that overwhelms their rev rate will love that the Mythic Jackal™ allows them an angular ball option to use early in the block. For speed dominant bowlers, pearls are often too clean and many hybrids are designed for higher friction environments. The Mythic Jackal™ is a true heavy oil ball that speed dominant bowlers will be able to use to see down lane motion before the lanes have been broken down.
- Balanced Bowlers: For balanced bowlers, having a pearl asymmetric designed for oil is important. Sometimes, moving into the oil with the “crankers” is advantageous, but without a stable core and stronger cover, the balanced bowlers and tweeners just seem to get overpowered. The Mythic Jackal™ is designed for that early transition when bowlers start to use steeper angles, but there is still a decent concentration of oil on the lane.
- Rev Dominant Bowlers: Those with lower ball speed or higher rev rates will love being able to shape the Mythic Jackal™ from the start. For those unable to use smoother rolling balls designed for oil like the Jackal™ Legacy, Jackal™ Ghost, or Trident™ Odyssey, the added length of the Mythic Jackal™ will provide that much needed length out of the gate. Rev Dominant bowlers in high friction or moderate volume environments may use the Mythic Jackal™ as their fresh oil ball.
