Yellow Jacket Review
« on: August 10, 2023, 03:54:27 PM »
Core: Flux
Type: Symmetric
Coverstock: Frixion M5 Microcell Polymer
Box Finish: 1000 Grit LSS
Video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=isCCoOrEKYY

Layout: 60 x 4¼ x 30

Strengths
Tank Yellow Jacket is the definition of control.  Frixion M5 Microcell Polymer is a dull coverstock and Flux is a low-flaring core, the created shape provides you with a fluent ball motion.

Tank Yellow Jacket picks up the moment it leaves your hand, paired with its fluent shape its rather ideal playing straighter angles. The early roll provides maximum control.

Weaknesses
I was not successful using Tank Yellow Jacket on heavier patterns, it isn’t something I was use to oil chase with.

Overall Summary
I encourage you to look at Tank Yellow Jacket if control is what you desire on drier patterns.
In terms of using Yellow Jacket on the fresh it is a matter of chasing the friction, doing so as the lanes opened up I moved further right.

As the friction increased, I became firmly aggressive in my release because of the ball motion of Yellow Jacket, and I use it often to blend out over/under.

If you see a Yellow Jacket in a tree, don’t pick it up.

If you see a Yellow Jacket in your proshop, please pick it up.

Your game will thank you for it.
