The Brunswick Uppercut uses the same successful core and base coverstock as the Melee Jab balls. The updated version of the Savvy Hook 3.0 spotlights Brunswick's textured pearl to offer more traction for added mid-lane reaction and continuation. The finish on this ball gives easy length and great backend. You have already hit the competition with the Jab so follow-up with the Uppercut!

This Ball Keeps Me Out of Trouble

I am a huge fan of the Melee Jab and so I was very excited to drill this ball and see what it could do. What I like about this ball is how it keeps me out of trouble. This ball isnít going to overreact or jump off the spot. Itís a very predictable, benchmark-type ball, that rolls very cleanly through the mid-lane and continues off of the spot. There have been a few times where I have bowled on conditions that were very wet-dry or over-under, and this ball kept me out of trouble. This ball helps me manage the pocket well and when the conditions match, this ball is incredible. Itís become my new benchmark ball.

LANE CONDITION

Length: 41 ish

Volume: 23 ish

Type (THS, Sport Pattern etc): Used this on a fresh house shot.


COMMENTS

Likes: The Brunswick Uppercut uses the same core & similar cover stock as the Melee Jab Se and I am a huge fan of that ball so I was excited to see what this would do. I was not disappointed. Using a "textured" pearl cover the ball picks up much sooner than the Jab and has an overall smoother, rounder shape but still has that great finish through the pins. This is probably the biggest symmetric pearl I've thrown. When the lane breaks down you jump to the Melee Jab SE. Great striking combo.

The Uppercut will definitely knock down the pins.  Ball reminds me of the Melee Jab but with a earlier midlane roll and more continuation on the backend.  If you love the Melee Jab and need a 1-2 punch combo, the Uppercut is the way to go
