Brunswick Fortera Intrigue Bowling Ball Review

Another Fortera, Is this One Intriguing? First Impressions A little confused to be honest. This ball seemed so close to the Fortera Exile in overall reaction, I’m not sure if Brunswick really got what it was looking for here with the Fortera Intrigue. Our Testers: Kerry Smith Stroker: 225 rpm PAP: 5 1/8 & 3/4 […]

Brunswick Melee Jab Bowling Ball Review

This Melee is a nice Jab in the face… First Impressions Now I get why Brunswick called the other Melee the Cross. With the strong heavy roll, it simulates a Cross while this pearlized version simulates a shorter, punchier Jab. Our Testers: Kerry Smith Stroker: 225 rpm PAP: 5 1/8 & 3/4 up Axis tilt: […]

Brunswick Melee Cross Bowling Ball Review
