COMMENTS

The Melee Jab Carbon is a very strong symmetrical piece in the Jab line.  The Carbon is clean like the Blood Red while having the backend motion of the Midnight Blue Jab.  If you are looking for a in between ball between the Blood Red and Midnight, you can't go wrong with the Carbon.

COMMENTS


The Melee Jab Carbon is a great long and strong medium condition type ball.  This one brings back memories of the original Melee Jab and is great in any situations where friction is present.  This one is currently may favorite ball in my bag.  The Jab Carbon plays well from multiple angles and I have successfully bowled 3 games of league with 10 people on a pair with it.  Amongst recent balls,  this one is as responsive as the Midnight Blue Jab with the length of the Blood Red Jab.  In my opinion this is the most angular ball currently in the line.  If your looking for long and strong, hit em' with the Melee Jab Carbon.

Clean and powerful. Those are the words I would use to describe this one. Brunswick keeps making the Melee series because they are just that good. This Carbon may be one of the best too. Itís very smooth and clean through the front, and the hitting power is one of the best Iíve seen in a midrange ball. I have a 4.5 inch pin on mine with hearing how clean the cover was beforehand. Iíve also thrown one with a 5.5 inch pin and it definitely had a bit more length. This is my second favorite Melee compared to the Jab SE.
