Ball review:

This is also a new favorite of mine! A ball I use on medium and heavy oil patterns especially on fresh oil. With this aggressive ball, with much backend motion, I can create a bigger angle to the pocket, which I like.

Ball review:

This is a ball that I use on medium and heavy oil patterns. It’s a very strong pearlized ball that hooks quite much, and when it’s time to move in and create some big angles, Saber Pearl is perfect!

Ball review:

The Savage The Savage core gives this ball a slightly higher RG of 2.49″ and slightly lower intermediate and total differentials of 0.051″ than the Lit Asymmetric core. It comes out of the box at a 500/2000 Abralon finish, giving the Savage plenty of traction through the oil. Compared to the regular LIT I saw an increase in total hook as well as a more defined Back End Motion. A great compliment to every Bowlers Arsenal. It is very useful on heavier oil Patterns.

Ball review:

The Saber Pearl joins the original Saber in a pearlized Version. This coverstock comes out of the box finished with 1000 Abralon and shined with Powerhouse Factory Finish Polish, giving it more length and a stronger change of direction than the sanded, solid-covered original Saber. If you are looking for a ball to change to when dull covers like the original Saber start hooking too early you will find the Saber Pearl to be an option. At its box finish, this ball is best suited for medium volume Patterns at a light to medium transitioned stage.

Ball review:

Eruption Pro Blue is the ball to stay straight up the lane with. I struggle when the pattern asks me to stay straight up the lane, and all my balls are just hooking too much. If I move in, I will lose my margin of error by not having hold, and at the same time if it passes the spot it does not recover. Instead, I can stay straighter with the Eruption Pro Blue to control the pocket on tough patterns.

Ball review:

Lit Pearl has a very round, clean and smooth reaction. Fits perfectly on patterns with less oil or when it starts to dry up. Perfect ball if I want to play more straight.

Ball review:

Lit Pearl is cleaner than the Lit. So i would use this ball when my Lit starts to burn up in the front i can switch to the Lit Pearl and move a little more left and get around the corner.

So if you need a ball that is smooth and has a arc motion this is the ball.

Ball review:

Lit Pearl is very clean and quick response, but without being unpredictable. It makes it’s move very sharply, but then gets in to a roll which allows for control and great pin carry.
With Lit Pearl being as clean as it is it allows me to use it on really burned patterns without rolling out.

Ball review:

I went with a pin up layout and wanted to compare this ball to a symmetrical ball so I went with the same layout as my Hammer Rebel (55 x 5 x 45).

I have already tested the Lit Pearl on 2 sport patterns (WTBA Montreal and Route 66) and the first results are very impressive. The Lit Pearl has the same amount – if not more – of hitting power as the solid version but I prefer the way the Pearl ball reacts downlane. I changed the surface (1000 Abralon) in order to create a slightly earlier downlane reaction and the results were very good. The small surface change allowed me to open up my angles and not having to worry about the ball shooting past the breakpoint.

In my opinion a very good addition to the already terrific C300 line-up.

Ball review:

The new Columbia 300 LIT Features the new Reflex XS Hybrid reactive coverstock.
In combintion with its low RG core, this Ball gives me a great midlane read on heavier volume Patterns. It allows me to open up my angles and still get the Ball to recover strong in the back. The cover is very versatile when it Comes to surface changes. When lower grit pads are used to alter the surface of the ball this ball gives me a smooth and predictable ball Motion which is mandatory on tougher Sport shots.
The Columbia 300 LIT is definitely a great Addition to the Arsenal of Players with lower rev rates and higher ball Speeds.
