The Melee is the updated answer to the very successful Versamax. If you owned the Versamax you already know how usable and unique the reaction was. If you didn't own one you missed out and here is the chance to get in on the fun! The Melee is about 2 and 1 stronger than the Versamax with more length and a stronger move off at the breakpoint. The Melee also has more continuation at the breakpoint and because of the extra energy retention really carries the corner pins well. So far I am at 1523 for 6 games of league this week with just the Melee. The ball is simply spectacular and I have no plans of putting it down unless the conditions drastically change! I am not sure I have ever had a better match up on our house shot! I can also see the Melee getting a bunch of use on a variety of moderate sport shot conditions due to its great versatility. Just make your adjustments as the lanes breakdown and it works from almost any angle. I can see this ball with the proper surface and layout working for almost any style. If you can change speeds or rotation and you bowl on moderate conditions all you need is a Melee!
