Ball review:

Mass Eruption – box condition – After two polished pearl releases in the Eruption line it is now time for an Eruption with more surface and a hybrid cover. The new Mass Eruption features once again the Resurgence core, a proven and high performing core. The cover is still the New Era but this time it’s a hybrid formulation. I find its reaction way stronger than the last two Eruptions, stronger on both the midlane and backend. It mostly resembles the Outburst but it’s a few boards stronger on the back end.

It reacts well to release changes so it allows me to use a lot of different angles through the fronts and still be able to have power at the pins. It struggles a little bit on fresh lanes but i suspect a surface change will make it a perfect first ball out of the bag. The Mass Eruption will certainly be in contention for most bang for the buck in the mid price line.

Ball review:

Pattern: Middle Road, WTBA Atlanta and House Shot

Medium-pattern are the Columbia Violent Eruption his favorites. Here he is most at home, even on the longer medium pattern. It is clear through the heads and rolled in contrast to its predecessor (eruption) earlier. But don’t lost his backend movement.

On the longer medium Pattern the Violent Eruption will came a little square, but after a few more games he will love it too.

With the layout I can stay very long on the track. After a few games the Violent Eruption rolls a little bit earlier, but without losing its backend.

The overall impression of the ball is in my opinion even better than its predecessor. So if you loved the previous Eruption, the new Violent Eruption is the ideal complement or love this even more. He’s just a little more variable than its predecessor.

First Eruption was a bomb and the new Violent Eruption is it too….

Ball review:

After the successful launch of the Columbia 300 Eruption, the next in line is the Violent Eruption. Both Eruptions contains a nice shiny surface and saves a lot of energy to the pins, but I find the original Eruption more steady and controllable on medium-dry conditions. After a few games with the violent Eruption, the name fits well to the motion of the ball – a violent aggressive backend.

Ball review:

The Eruption was one of the most succesful balls for Columbia 300 last season and the new Violent Eruption uses a lot of the same reaction.
The Violent Eruption is long with a strong backend. The low RG makes it controllable and helps smooth out the friction, which makes it a great ball on dry conditions.

The Violent Eruption seems to respond well to hand position changes. With forward roll it gets through the fronts and won’t force you left. If I go around it I can make it backend really hard, so this ball will have a lot of different options.

Ball review:

The Eruption is a fantastic ball. I find it very stable being a polished ball. The reaction down the lane I see is strong, but with good length and a nice smooth arc on the backends. Very controllable reaction. The Eruption is a sure winner in my bag when traveling to tournaments. I find it’s reaction in the same category of the Epidemic from Hammer, but the Epidemic being stronger in overall reaction.

The Eruption as a whole is a great ball for everyone, because it’s so versatile.

Ball review:

The new Eruption uses the same Resurgence-core as the Burst and Out Burst, but with a new cleaner cover.

For me I see the same kind of backend motion as the Out Burst. Smooth, but strong.
The Eruption is very clean for me and actually a little weaker than I expected. This makes it good for medium or medium-shorter patterns or when there has been some play on the lanes.

The Eruption is a great compliment to the Game Changer, Game Breaker, 503c and other medium strenght balls.

Ball review:

Get used to the ERUPTION! This ball is going to be a huge sucess, and with the original Resurgence core and a modified surface of the Burst, it creates pin action as never seen before. I have drilled my ball with my favourite drilling, and it kicks a lot in the backend.

It can be used on most patterns and it is a “safe” ball to bring at the EBTF-tours around Europe. Buy it before it is too late!

The Gamebreaker is already a well-known ball released by Ebonite, with first release date a couple of years ago. They decided to put it back on the Ebonite portfolio for a while, and no wonders why. THIS IS A GREAT BALL!

I drilled a Gamebreaker for short oil some time ago (with pin in PAP), and were used to a couple of European Men Championships to get an early ball motion. The new Gamebreaker is also drilled to be early, but with the purpose of getting a continuous ball motion all way through the lane. This is exactly what I got, and it works perfectly to my needs.
This is maybe the most versatile ball I got right now, as it very easy to use abralon to change the ball motion. In this context, I can see several similarities to the original Hammer Black Widow (drilled in the same way) which had, to some extent, same nice reaction in the lane.

The perfect match to the outburst. Little more length much stronger backend. One of my new favorites. Good on medium long patterns 37-42 feet.

Ball review:

I had really high expectations and hopes for this ball. It did not disappoint me. This is a perfect match together with the Outburst. It´s longer and more angular at the breakpoint. Perfect ball for broken-down patterns when you need that extra backend.

Ball review:

The Eruption utilises the Resurgence core combined with a new coverstock. As the two previous releases in this series it performs like a champ. The Burst was for me on the snappy side. The Outburst was a perfect match between power and control. The Eruption has the same type of reaction as the Outburst only longer and stronger due to the new cover and the added polish. Outburst and Eruption makes a great combo.
