Columbia Speed (WWRD 03/25/2022)

 

Columbia Speed

The all new Columbia300 Speed was impressive during the PBA Tournament of Champions telecast. The new hybrid cover (Formula 1) and new core (Shifter) will provide a stronger option to the popular C300 Power Torq. Overall hook on heavy volumes is where the Speed will read the road. The 12 & 13 pound balls do have an alternate core, but will do the job of its heavier counterparts. All high performance balls are built with D.O.T. and DynamiCore for superior drilling options and durability.

Recommended Cleaner: Brunswick Scrubbing Gel

Brunswick Defender (WWRD 3/25/2022)

Brunswick Defender

  The Defender is not only great looking, but it will excel on heavy volume conditions. It could help speed dominate bowlers who need to slow down to allow more hook. Using an updated Portal core, you will see a later motion than with most high end solid equipment. The Defender looks to slot in between the Quantum Evos. Available from 12-16lbs., all are built with D.O.T. for great drilling options and DynamiCore for increased hitting power and durability. The 12-13s have an alternate core, but provides the same great performance.

DV8 Collision (WWRD 2/25/2022)

 

 DV8 Collision

DV8 adds a new piece to their Pro Performance line with the Collision. The Collision is built with the new Inciter Max Continuation Hybrid cover and Collision core combo. The performance is designed for length with a strong backend on medium to heavy volumes. The motion would be stronger than the Hell Raiser return with a sharper motion down lane. This ball will grab attention not just from its motion but its colors of Pink/Silver/Black, too. The DV8 Collision built with D.O.T. and DynamiCore for drilling ease, durability and hitting power. Balls that are 12 and 13lbs have an alternate core, but are designed to create the ball motion of the heavier counterparts.

Hammer 3-D Offset (WWRD 2/25/2022)

Hammer 3-D Offset

Does this ball sound familiar? The Hammer 3-D Offset has been brought up in conversations for years when people talk about great bowling balls. Celebrating the 25th anniversary of the 3-D Offset, Hammer bowling is offering new technology and outstanding performance to remind you of the ball motion but made for today’s conditions. Hammer started with the core shape, creating a single density inner core with the same shape as the original. The original was a thick-shell ball, and it’s been modified today’s version with a carbon fiber outer core. These modifications create more dynamic core numbers for increased ball motion potential and a durable, harder-hitting product. Hammer has also made this a D.O.T. ball which further increases durability and eliminates layout and drilling restrictions. The Blazing Violet color is almost identical to the original. The 12 & 13lbers have an alternate core but offers the same motion as the other weights.

Hammer Black Widow Urethane (WWRD 2/25/2022)

Hammer Black Widow Urethane

The most popular Hammer core of all time (Gas Mask) and one of the most talked about covers in recent years (Purple Pearl Urethane) have been combined!  If you’re looking for control and more hook (Strong arc) than the Purple Pearl, look no farther. Bowling in high competition need control with more motion? The Hammer Black Widow Urethane should be in your tournament bag. Color? Pink! Pink! & Pink! (With a little white). The Asymmetrical cores are altered in the 12-13lbers, but are still stronger than the Symmetrical Purple Pearls for more motion.

Brunswick Knock Out Black & Blue (WWRD 1/28/2022)

Brunswick Knock Out Black & Blue

 

One of the most popular releases in 2021 was the Brunswick Knock Out, a strong contender for Ball of The Year. Keeping the bowler favorite Melee Core, Brunswick has boosted the cover to Savvy Hook 3.5 Solid. Changing the finishing process a stronger to help delay lane shine and cut through the oil better, makes the Black & Blue a great choice since the Knock Out is no longer available. Weight choices are 12-16lbs. and all are built with DynamiCore for increased hitting power and durability.
