Brunswick Melee Reviewed By: baer300 11/30/2013 20:30 ( stars)


A little about me, I am slightly rev dominant, 12 degrees of tilt and 35 degrees of axis rotation. PAP is 4 over and 3/4 up.

The Melee is to replace the Versa Max. The VM was very special for me. I absolutely loved this ball. I was super excited to drill these and see what happened.

First one is drilled RICO. I use this ball a lot on the fresh when there is some hook. It really controls the back part of the lane for me. The shape of this ball is unmatched in my eyes. It is really special. I will also use it after my Mastermind if I feel that opening up my angles will not strike a lot.

Second one is drilled 70x4.5x40. I use this ball once the lanes begin to break down or I need the ball to really get down the lane without going sideways. This will provides me with that length and a smooth motion controllable motion off the spot.

The Melee when compared to the Versa Max is very similar. The shape is almost identical but is a little longer, a little more angular and a little stronger. I will be drilling more of these to replace Versa's that I really like. In the past with the Versa Max, I could only go so far left before the ball wouldn't go through the pins properly. With the Melee, I have not have this happen. Since it is a little more angular, it does save more energy for downlane, thus creating more entry angle down lane.

If you liked/loved the Versa Max, you must get a Melee. If you missed out on the Versa Max, don't miss out on the Melee this time.
