Columbia 300 Savage

in Columbia 300

Surface finish: 1000/2000
Layout: X hole
PAP: 6 right & 3/8 up
Speed: 25 km
Revrate: 325 rpm
RG: 2.49
Diff: 0.051

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.

 

Surface finish: 500 / 2000
Layout: 45 / 5 / 45
PAP: 5 1/4″ right 1″ up
Speed: 26 km

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:

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.

Surface finish: box
Layout: 6″
PAP: 6 ½ out 23/32 up
Speed: 26 km

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.

 

Surface finish: box
Layout: 60 x 5″ x 25
PAP: 4 3/4 over and 1/2 up
Speed: 17 mph
Revrate: 340 rpm

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.

 

Surface finish: box
Layout: 55 x 5 x 45

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.

Surface finish: 500 / 2000
Layout: 65 / 4 3/4 / 35
PAP: 5 1/4” right 1” 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:

I use this ball when I want to create a stable bowling ball motion and it never surprise you. I think this ball is best on short patterns or very dry lanes. I played with this ball both on the Nordic championship and European Cup, so it has already won me medals

PAP: 6 right & 3/8 up
Speed: 25 kmh
Revrate: 325 rpm
RG: 2.47

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!

Ebonite Real One

in Ebonite

Surface finish: 500 / 1000 / Factory Finish
Layout: 65 / 5 / 35
PAP: 5 1/4” right 1”up
Speed: 26 kmh
Revrate: 450 rpm
RG: 2.46
Diff: 0.056

Ball review:

The Real One is the latest release to bring back a familiar name from Ebonite’s past. This ball uses a hybrid coverstock that is finished with 1000 Abralon and then polished with Powerhouse Factory Finish Polish. It pairs this coverstock up with the asymmetrical core This core Features a very low RG of 2.46″ and large total differential of 0.056″Combined with the strong intermediate differential this core is a real beast and helps to start the Ball early. When I was testing the Real One it seemed that this Ball was just a hair earlier and smoother off the spot than the Matrix. So if you are looking for a predicable backend but still Need something to get through the fronts, then the Real One is definitely a must have in the bag
