The Brunswick Cutting Edge bowling balls continue the Edge series of bowling balls featuring a low RG symmetric weight block. The Cutting Edge Hybrid combines this core with their Relativity Hook Hybrid coverstock. This pairing produces excellent traction in the middle of the lane as well as powerful continuation down the lane.
Well, if you are going to take the Cutting Edge Solid with you every time you bowl then you might as well bring along the Cutting Edge Hybrid. This ball gives me a few extra boards down lane when there is more volume or a longer pattern. The Hybrid and Cutting Edge Solid are a great pair. It's the combination of the original Edge and Melee Jab which simply means it's a great ball and one which will help you especially if you don't have a high rev rate.

The Cutting Edge Hybrid is one of the strongest balls in the Brunswick line. It is definitely the strongest at its price point. It offers a reaction that is clean through the front with a strong read of the midlane. In my opinion it is very smooth and predictable. I am going to use this ball when the Cutting Edge Solid and the Method are going too long. The Cutting Edge Hybrid will be the first ball out of my bag on most medium and longer sport conditions and on most house conditions. This ball is perfect for figuring out how long the pattern is and what reaction shape will work best. Overall the Cutting Edge Hybrid is a stronger benchmark type ball that offers a lot of hook for the money. It is a very versatile ball and will work for may styles where oil is present.
The new Cutting Edge Hybrid from Brunswick is certainly a lot of ball for the price point. I threw the ball on a fresh 44' house shot and from the first throw I knew this ball is the real deal. Its early rolling and controllable on the back end. I tried to push the limits on how far I could get the ball out and it continued to come back shot after shot.
I drilled the ball with a 4" Pin to PAP and fitted with Ultimate Bowling Products inserts.
