This has become my favorite ball EVER! It is the first one out of my bag, extremely versatile and hits like a truck! Not only am I able to start with it, but I can switch to it during game 3, 4, etc. You will not be disappointed with this purchase. Don't wait any longer!

It Is Really That Good

Sometimes you come across a ball that just fits perfectly with your game. That is the Brunswick Uppercut.
I generally struggle to generate consistent down lane motion symmetrical core, pearl cover balls, but the uppercut works perfectly for my game.
Also doesn't hurt that it looks amazing!

This ball is AMAZING!!!!!

I love this ball. The Brunswick Upper cut with Dynamicore I feel already gives you an edge from extra carry on off the hitting power. This ball is very angular and very strong down lane. This ball has been very versatile on many patterns. This ball has worked best when you need something clean thorough the front part of the lane.

Strong back-end!!

The Uppercut by Brunswick is a high-performance bowling ball that has good length with a strong continues mid-lane and back-end performance. The Uppercut has a hook rating and strength of 78 out of 100. This ball's coverstock is SAVVY Hook 3.0 with 500,1000 Siaair and finished with crown factory compound. This ball works best on league patterns with some oil. This ball will not disappoint on its angle to create strong hitting power to carry-out the corners. This ball compares to the Melee Jab as it has the same core and carries the same power. This ball would be a great ball during transition when you can move left and open your angle.

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.

Brunswick Uppercut

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.

Great ball

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

Uppercut Above the Rest

I don't have a lot of games on my Uppercut, but have been impressed on the versatility of it. I can honestly say that the Uppercut is a great benchmark ball and will be easy to keep in play on medium to heavier oil patterns. The smooth, non flipping reaction keeps me out of trouble not needing to give away the pocket.

Hit Your Competition with an Upper Cut

The Brunswick Uppercut has impressed me a great deal. I like the early mid lane response and smooth predictable backend rolling motion that goes through the pins nicely. I look forward to using this piece on tricky patterns as well as league patterns.

What ball is more aggressive on the backend the phantom or the upper cut

11/30/2020 - By

Have an answer to this question?


The Uppercut will have the stronger backend hook while the Phantom will have an earlier read to have a more gradual arcing hook.
