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.

Ball review:


The Spoiler rolls into Columbia 300’s mid-performance Yellow Line collection this fall, joining the Juke, the Sideswipe, and the Sideswipe Solid. It uses the Bend-It Solid coverstock paired up with the brand new Spoiler core design that has a higher RG (2.52″) than the Juke and Sideswipe cores. Its 0.045″ differential will provide more flare potential than the Sideswipe and a little less than the Juke. The Spoiler comes out of the box with a 500/2000 Abralon finish, allowing it to easily gnaw through heavy to medium volume oil patterns. It seemed that eventough I used pin up Layout on this Piece it never seemed to be to jumpy off the spot which made it very predictable and easy to read

Revrate: 340 RPM
RG: 2.57

Ball review:

The Spoiler is a symmetrical ball that can handle a good amount of oil and is smooth and continous. Spoiler allows me to open my angles a little extra compared to other symmetrical balls because it continues a little more.
It will be a good benchmark ball or a good step down from the High Performance balls.

Ball review:

This is a really strong ball! This is definitely a ball that gives you a lot of help when you need to move a little more left. It’s not only that it’s early, Lit is very strong and has everything you need through the whole lane! It’s definitely a ball that needs higher volume patterns! Lit is something special and this ball has everything that I really like!

Ball review:

This ball hooks…..alot!!
The combination of core and cover work perfectly here and this ball is best suited for higher volume and longer patterns and for players with less hand.

My recommendation – for players who struggle to get the ball to turn the corner, then this ball is the right choice for you.

Ball review:

 

This review is done by Løvvang Pro Shop Staffer Mikael Brændeskov:

My first impression is that this is a very medium ball. It has medium length, medium midlane and medium back end reaction. I see the best reactions from the ball on medium and shorter patterns when the first transition occurs and the lane gives me a bit more midlane read. Within this window where I tend to use the ball it’s very predictable and has a nice, continuous reaction on the last part of the lane.
