Melee Jab Carbon

Melee Jab Carbon is the next evolution in the jab series. This ball is amazing at hooking the whole lane when it dries out. The A.X.H pearl cover keeps you coasting down the lane when they are a little dry, but the Melee core does not give you flat performance on the back of the lane. It is a truck going through the pins! When you need a symmetrical pearl reaction there is none better than a Melee product and this does not disappoint.

Great ball

Melee Carbon - this ball is a must have in anyone's arsenal. This a a great ball for those medium conditions or later in league or tournaments when the conditions are breaking down. Comparing the Carbon to the other Melee Jabs, I'd say the Carbon is a touch smoother and more controllable.

Melee Jab Carbon

Melee Jab fans are going to love this one. The carbon Is a great universal piece to add to the bag. Light to medium oil conditions will get jabbed by the carbon. Cover is very versatile it you want to add a little teeth to it. Strong motion with great continuation. Good ball down from the Knockout Black Blue when you need a little more distance. Great solid symmetrical to add to the bag for league and tournament conditions.

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.

Brunswick Melee Carbon

The Brunswick Melee Jab Carbon has looked awesome for me so far. My PSO put holes in it Saturday and I won a tournament with it Sunday averaging 246 for the 6 games I used it. That Melee core is a proven staple in the line. It has proven itself over and over and over with all the Melee's, Knockouts, The Uppercut & others. This particular one is using a new formulation of pearl coverstock called A.X.H. For me it is nice and clean with easy length and hits really hard. I really like this ball to be in the arsenal.

How does the Melee handle dry lanes

Have an answer to this question?


This ball is best in medium oil conditions. If you use this in lighter to drier conditions then it would read earlier on the lane and roll out so the ball will not have good continuation or carry through the pins.
