An awesome release from Brunswick
Have mine drilled 50 x 4 1/2 x 35 with the pin above the ring finger. Found the ball to be very smooth but has enough backend punch to carry very well. Would recommend this ball for most medium conditions. If you are looking for that benchmark type reaction, look no further than the Brunswick Uppercut. This ball really impressed and went immediately into my tournament bag. If you are dealing with tough conditions or would like a ball to use in order to read the lanes correctly, this ball is for you. Don't delay, you won't be disappointed.

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 combo.

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 isn't going to overreact or jump off the spot. It's 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. It's become my new benchmark ball.

The Uppercut is a strong midpriced ball most styles will love. It clears the front of the lane very well before beginning to slow down late in the midlane. This ball then stands up fast and makes a defined move toward the pocket. I find this ball to be slightly longer than the Hero and earlier than the Melee Jab SE. This one is right around the sweet spot for use on the house shot and medium patterns. I chose a smoother rolling larger angle type layout in order to allow me to close my angles a bit and get closer to the track area. I have found that this ball still makes a very big quick move at the breakpoint. The Uppercut definitely stores energy very well. It defies the stereotypes that Brunswick Balls don't move on the backend. If you are looking for a benchmark ball for medium conditions that is on the angular side of the spectrum throw a punch with the Uppercut.

For anyone that loved the Melee Jab, you're going to love the Uppercut just as much. For me the Uppercut is 3-4 boards stronger overall than the Jab and about 2 feet earlier in the midlane. You can use these two balls as a nice 1-2 combo with the Uppercut on the fresh and finishing with the Jab when you need a little more length and backend
