Hell of a KNOCK OUT

This balls gives me everything I look for in a benchmark ball. Great Body in the mid-lane. Very continuous through the pins. It allows me to move when they get too dry and never loses the energy. I have found I have the most miss room with this ball. If I pull it, it won't over hook and if I miss a little right it doesn't bail on me going through the pins. I find it blends out the patterns in transition very well.

Knockout benchmark

This is a great benchmark ball. It is smooth and recovers well off the friction, if you like the Melee Jab you will love this ball. Starts up earlier then the Melee but has a smooth mid lane read that I like. Great bench mark ball out of your bag. It is truly an all purpose ball you can use in all types of conditions. I’m able to play to the right until transition hits and can still get around the ball and carry the corners when the lanes break down.

Pin Knockout!

The Knockout is exactly that! Brunswick got it right with this ball as this ball gives me versatility. This bowling ball is strong, angular, and continuous all in one. I can play the lane by keeping my angles in front of me or I can open up the lane and swing the ball without any loss in performance or hitting power. The layout I have on the ball is 65 x 4.5 x 30. This is a great ball for your league bowlers and perfect for tournament play.

Knock Out

The Knock Out is easy to get through the fronts, picks up well in the midlane and is very continuous in the backend. Really blends out patterns well allowing me to keep the ball more in front of me yet has nice shape while swinging it as the block goes on.

Get Knocked Out

This ball is something special! I’ve been able to throw it on a variety of patterns and it never fails to deliver. If I need to play straight or get deep, all I need to do is manipulate my hand to make the ball do tricks. Even on heavy oil this ball still keeps coming. There’s a reason a lot of the top players in the PBA and PWBA have this ball in their bag and the versatility of it is a huge factor. If you haven’t punched one up yet you’re missing out.

80 x 4 1/8 x 55 – PAP 4 ½ -> and ½^ - Speed – 15mph – Rev Rate 380

First of all, this ball is all black which is my favorite color to throw. For a mid-price line ball this ball is versatile strong and has a great reaction shape. It is fairly clean through the front, picks up in the midlane, and still has a strong reaction in the end. This ball would work for league and tougher oil patterns, this is a great benchmark ball to have in your bag. I would recommend using this on medium to heavy oil patterns. I always feel the solid black bowling balls roll better and read the lane better than any other color.

Knock Out

Melee core with a strong versatile cover. This ball is awesome. It will allow you to play any part of the lane you are comfortable with. This will be your benchmark ball!!! The shape is very strong and predictable. Whenever you start moving in you won't lose hitting power as it has plenty of hitting power left. Definitely a must have. Buy a Knock Out! #BAKO

Knock Out

I know this seems very cliché but this ball really is a Knock Out. I drilled mine my favorite symmetrical layout of 4 x 30 It is a nice benchmark symmetrical that gets down lane without much effort and is strong off the spot and hits hard. I think this is going to be a small step down from my Bonus solid and a little earlier than my Bonus Pearl. It fits nicely in there. If you a fan of striking get one of these.

GREAT BALL

78 years old and shot 600 plus at 10mph. No blows until 10th frame of game 2 left 3-10 split and no conversion. Only 3rd game blow was a washout when I lined up off 1 board left too far. IF I can use this great ball anyone should ba able to.

If You Loved the Melee Jab, You'll Love the Knock Out

There are so many things right about this ball. Brunswick took the Melee Core and combined it with a Savvy Hook 3.0 solid cover to give this ball a strong and predictable symmetric shape with great recovery down lane. On a house shot, this ball blends the pattern very well and still has the ability to recover if you happen to miss a board here or there.

If you are a fan of the Brunswick Melee Jab, this shape is very similar just with a solid cover. This ball is a must have in your bag. You can sand it down or shine it up and this ball will work so well. I haven’t bowled on a condition where this ball hasn’t been in play.

So versatile, ball of the year candidate

A solid melee jab, and this thing is awesome. Ive seen tons of talk on ball of the year and I wouldn’t dispute it. Such a smooth rolling ball that hits amazing. For comparison I have it reading probably 5 feet smoother than my melee jab se and is smoother off the spot. This ball rolls awesome on house shots and also always makes the tournament bag with how smooth it is and how well it reads the midlane for me. Tons of uses for this one, haven’t experimented with surface changes yet, rolled too well out of box to want to mess with it.

Your heavyweight ball of choice!

Well I've got to say they got the name right. This ball packs quite the punch on the medium to heavier oil conditions and really just doesn't quit. I found myself actually moving a little deeper on the fresh rather than playing straight up the boards because it could still get up the hill. One of its hallmarks is the fact that it's also versatile. You won't be crossing a ton of boards like a pearl but if you take a little polish to this ball, you've taken away a bit of the early roll and you now have a bit more backend reaction if your league shot dictates it. I'm sure this ball can fit with a variety of bowlers and they will all look like heavyweights with a Knock Out in hand

Knock Out ball review

The Knock Out is everything I expected and more. I put my favorite symmetrical ball layout on this ball with the pin below the ring finger. I used the same layout on the Spoiler and the Verge, which are two balls I also loved. The Knock Out is easily 5 boards stronger overall and more continuous through the pins than those two balls. It needs a little oil up front or it will want to hook early but it still gives me that 'benchmark' controllable shape and takes well to my adjustments. Easily becoming my favorite ball to use on a variety of patterns.

Incredible ball...perfect benchmark piece

A home run to start 2021 off right. The new Knock Out is the perfect compliment to the Melee Jab. The stronger coverstock takes really well to surface adjustments to let you play on a variety of lane conditions. Super versatile ball that will be the perfect benchmark piece in most arsenals. Grab this ball and I promise you won't regret it. I mean it is black and it has a Melee core...what more can you want?

Brunswick Knock Out

Here is my take on the new Brunswick Knock Out which is currently available. The new Knock Out features the ever versatile, symmetrical Melee core wrapped by a Black Savvy Hook 3.0 Solid cover Box finish is 2000 Siaair and has a 2 year warranty.
My “vitals” are a 405 rev rate with a PAP of 5 9/16 over and 1/8 up. I drilled my Knock Out with a 40 x 6 x 25 layout and have thrown it at box surface on Kegel Winding Road, Kegel Tungsten and THS.
The Melee core balls such as the Jab SE and the Jab Blood Red have quickly become among my favorite Brunswick symmetrical core equipment. Each one of the above balls have shown length which a very defined/sharp backend motion which is critical when trying to go left to right on a pattern on the right side. So, when the Knock Out was announced, I was eager to try it. The Knock Out, as would be expected from a solid with a duller surface, showed a little earlier and smoother motion compared to a similarly drilled Jab Blood Red. That being said, the Knock Out still showed that defined and sharp motion across all fresh patterns listed above. From what I have seen, the Knock out will be at its best on medium to heavier volume patterns and depending on speed, a variety of pattern distances. Brunswick has a great combination here when looking for a symmetrical piece of equipment that will go left to right with confidence and continuation. On fresh, start with a Knock Out and when the pattern breaks down/transitions, go to a Jab Blood Red. Like with other Melee core balls, a variety of styles will be able to use this piece of equipment.

Great ball

The name of this ball says it all. Its an absolute knockout. Strong, angular, continuous, controllable is what this ball is. With the 2000 surface that the ball is finished with, it allows me to use it on those fresh medium /medium heavy oil conditions. Its very good from all different angles with changes in hand positions. Comparing it to the Melee Jab blood red, I would say its a good 2-3 feet sooner but still continues through the pins. Both balls are a great compliment to each other as when the knockout isn't finishing, you can go right to the blood red jab

Knock Out!

The brand new Knock Out by Brunswick is a Jab on steroids! Using the Savvy hook 3.0 and the same core from the og Melee core many bowlers will love this plain black ball. The Knock Out for me hooks more in the mid lane and stronger over all. Down lane it has continuation and that hitting power from the Dynamicore. Comparing it to the Blood Red Jab it's 5-6 boards stronger and picks up quicker in the mid lane. It's a ball to start with for med to heavy oil conditions and ball down to the Blood Red when it starts hooking to much or forcing you to move out of your comfort zone. I see some high score with the Knock Out! You won't be disappointed!

Perfect Melee Blood Red Compliment

It is the perfect compliment to the Melee Jab Blood Red! It is essentially a solid version of the ball. The solid coverstock allows the ball to be earlier and more predictable than the blood red. A must have in everyone's bag!

Brunswick Knock Out

The Brunswick Knock Out is a very reliable shape, first ball out of the bag type of ball. It is a strong symmetric ball that is a nice follow up to the Uppercut. It is fairly clean through the front of the lane with a rounded shape down lane. For me it will be a Mr. Consistent, not get in trouble kind of ball. I think it will work best on difficult patterns.
