Melee Jab fans rejoice! The Edge Pearl brings back everything that was loved about the Jab and more. Very easy length through the fronts and mids, and a controllable, angular motion off the spot. This pearl will allow you to open up the lane and kick the corners out when the Edge Solid is a bit too early. I had a lot of success on both patterns with this ball, on the house shot allowing me to throw it to the dry and get it back, but also on the high volume sport pattern I tested as well allowing me to keep my angles in front of me when my Edge Solid was too early to do so and keep a high strike percentage. The Edge Pearl will definitely be a staple on house patterns and on breakdown on sport patterns. I also compared the Edge Pearl with my Fanatic Pearl, and found that the Edge Pearl is about 3-2 less and less angular, allowing me to switch to it when the Fanatic was too sideways off the end of the pattern. Very readable and controllable, yet still a strong pearl at a great price point!

About the Bowler

I drilled this ball exactly like I drilled my Edge Solid (pin up) so I could have that easy ball down choice when the lanes being to be to dry for the Solid. I throw 17 mph, rev rate 375-400 and I have good forward roll. This Edge pearl has the Melee Jab core with very similar coverstocks! So if you had the Jab and loved that ball this one won't disappoint! I use this ball on lighter oil or once the lanes begin to break down. It gets down the lane with ease. It comes off the spot longer down lane but doesn't kick sideways, it has a hard but smooth finish down lane which I love! For this price point don't pass this up!

I drilled my Edge Pearl with my favorite 1/2 side 1/2 finger layout for the typical house shoot. The ball reacted as advertised it went longer through the fronts and reacted quicker to fiction . If your looking for a ball with a strong backend and great carry this should be your choice.

Good Luck and keep hitting them hard

The Edge Pearl has a low RG of 2.487 and a differential of .050. This ball is the perfect complement to the Edge Solid. When the solid version is starting to burn up a little too soon and you start to leave the weak corner pins, that’s when the Edge Pearl comes in to play. The pearl version gets about 3-5 feet more push down the lane and has a stronger backend than the solid. I still would not describe this ball as skid/flip, but it does have a more defined breakpoint than the solid. Brunswick compares this ball to the Melee Jab and the reaction is very similar to that ball. For me the Edge Pearl is a little less overall hook than the Melee Jab. This ball is best suited for medium to lighter conditions or when the fresh house pattern has gotten beaten up a little bit. The Edge Pearl is a great addition to any arsenal for broken down patterns, and at its price point it’s hard to find a ball that compares to it.

Wow. Yes you must have this ball. Melee Jab fans there's a new ball in town. This ball I would say is 1-2 boards more then the jab smoother and a pinch earlier in the midlanes with great backend. This is very controllable and predictable off the press I went and bowled a tournament and game 3 with the ball shot 300. Very easy to get lined in with this ball and know consistently this ball will react the same shot after shot. The Edge Solid and Edge pearl are a great combo to have in the bag.

As mentioned below this ball is similar to the Melee Jab however, for me, it is much more controllable down lane. The Jab was well known for coming off the spot while the Edge Pearl allows you to create more angles down lane. It is very controllable but still able to finish off friction. I've thrown this on house and 49 feet; both being able to finish well on. Definitely a great ball especially at the price point!

The Edge Blue Pearl combines our Relativity Pearl coverstock with our proven Edge low RG symmetrical core for a reaction very similar to our highly popular Melee Jab. The Edge Blue Pearl provides outstanding length, angular backend motion, and excellent hitting power on medium oil lane conditions.
COMMENTS
I drilled the edge pearl with a shorter pin to my PAP. I shortened the pin to my PAP because I have trouble with pearl covers giving me a big over under. I love the reaction I get with this ball. If you like the Melee Jab you will love this bal

This is one of my favorites and is a great compliment to my Edge Solid! When the Solid is more than I need , I can go right to my Edge Pearl. It is very clean through the fronts with a strong predictable back end motion. This is a must have ball.

Edge Blue Pearl

I drilled my Edge Pearl 50 x 4 1/4 x 60 putting the pin below my fingers. This ball gets through the front part of the lane with ease, with a surprising strong backend motion even with the pin under drilling, and has great stored energy creating an explosive hitting power through the pins. This is an ideal ball for medium to light oil conditions. When everyone is moving deep inside, you can pull this ball out, and play the lanes with straighter lines with excellent entry angle to the pocket. This ball also responds very well to cover changes. This is an excellent ball for league, and for shorter sport shot oil conditions. Feel free to contact me by email with any questions; troy_300_1999@yahoo.com.

I loved the Melee Jab and so this ball is like a Melee Jab on steroids! It’s pearlized cover gets down the lane easily. Once it exits the pattern, it is strong and continuous. I have seen the Edge Pearl go a few feet longer that the Edge Solid and hook about three more boards on the backend for me. I recently bowled a tournament where the heads started to go and I was able to switch the Edge Pearl and it was EXACTLY the ball I needed. In fact, I hadn’t even had chance to throw it in practice but felt confident that this ball would be the right piece to go to. The Edge Solid and Pearl are definitely a one-two punch! Not to sound super cheesy – but these balls will give you the Edge you need!

COMMENTS
Likes: Easy lenth and predictability

The EdgePearl is a smooth and predictable ball with good length. It is a good compliment to the Edge Solid and earlier midlane reacting balls like the Fanatic SS. I find it to be best used when thee is friction up front and I need a softer move on the backend. For me it is about 5 and 2 right of the new Edge Solid on a house shot and about 4 feet later. The Edge Pearl is a great ball for paying more direct angles up the lane. If your looking for a ball to play straighter angles l and to stay near the friction on house conditions or to control the breakpoint on tougher shots, the Edge Pearl is a great choice

60x5.75x30 is my layout on my Edge Pearl. I absolutely love the motion of this ball! It is clean through the fronts and makes a predictable strong motion through the pins. Carry is amazing and I can't wait to do a similar drill for the Edge solid.
