Additional product information:
We hit you with a Jab, now comes the Uppercut. We wrapped our new Savvy Hook 3.0 around the Melee Core with DynamiCore to create more mid lane than the Jab with the same strong backend motion.
Crown Factory Compound
50X5x40. For me I found the uppercut to be super clean through the front. Reads good in the mids. Makes a pretty sharp move when it sees friction. Stronger then expected from a symmetrical ball. Has good continuation. Hit with 2000-4000 pads. Found 4000 to be the surface I was looking for. Read a bit sooner and was not as jumpy off the friction. Good middle ball for your arsenal.
The Uppercut combines the core of the Melee and the cover of Conspiracy Theory. Result, strong reaction with length and control!
Pin down 5" 2000 on the spinner after each use.
I had the same layout on my Hero finding this ball to be longer, faster off the spot and more continuous
This ball with this layout and surface is not over reactive off the friction.
I feel I have good control of the lane with this ball, layout and surface.
With the surface I have it at this ball can be 1st ball out of my back on league might.
I fit this ball in between my Verge and Jagged Edge Solid.

I have to admit it took a little time for me to learn the behavior of the Uppercut but the waiting was worth it. This ball can destroy the pins and is so controllable through the fronts that there's no fear of early read and burning up before reaching the pins.
The combination of the characteristics brought from the Melee Jab SE combined with the textured pearl are a great fit. Originally when laid out (pin above ring finger) and from what I read about the ball I expected a more aggressive piece and once I learned to not overthrow it and just let it read the lane it performed beautifully.
I have used this ball on Stonestreet and on PBA Mark Roth and the match up on both has been effortless. If I'm using a smoother midlane ball to start a session and find it struggling to retain energy, this is the next option. Not much movement with my feet, but later motion and sharper shape gets the job done well.
Another high performing piece from the number one name in bowling!

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.
