The catalogs and ball links can be found here FTF Equipment Page. We update it regularly, so please check back often.

Columbia 300 Messenger PowerCOR Pearl

@15lbs 2.515 .040 DynamiCore/HK22 (10-16lbs) - Alternate Cores 12-13lbs & 10-11lbs • Volume - Light to Medium • Core - Messenger PowerCOR • Coverstock - HK22 Reflex Pearl
The popular Messenger nameplate goes back to its roots as well as adding new tech to bring a fantastic light volume option at a great price point. 2 Years ago C300 brought back the messengers in a solid and pearl version. They were an option for lighter volumes, a transition ball for later games or a reactive choice for bowlers getting their first ball. Going back to the original color of Black/Gold and using an HK22 base with the Reflex Pearl package, Columbia300 has upped the performance in the Messenger level. This ball is a step down in core from the Kaboom with the same cover at a smoother box surface.

Columbia 300 Kaboom (WWRD 4/18/2024)

Hello April!

This month is a unique one in the releases and the removals of some iconic faceplates. From what we are seeing the days are numbered on the Ebonite Maxim line. However, the popular colors are being moved into other poly lines. There are also quite a number of balls being retired. So there will be replacements within their respective lines. For all of them the WWRD is 4/18/2024, so get your pre-orders in so you can have yours on release day!

All bowling balls (except Polys) have a 2 year warranty from the date of purchase.

A new core/cover combo enters the Columbia300 Advanced line. The Kaboom brings length and a strong sweeping backend motion at a great price point. The HK22 Reflex Pearl cover and medium-high diff will help slower speed bowlers who need help getting the ball down lane and have some hitting power. This is another choice to battle high friction lanes. The 2 blues and the HK22 base really makes this ball look great, too.

Columbia300 brings a ball designed for heavy volumes in a wild color scheme. Traction and a big back end motion will turn some heads; think more continuous than the Piranha. This is the same additive package from the Cuda, but with the HK22 base formula. There aren’t many solid with HK22, but the tech is being developed to bring new and exciting options. The Pure Madness will fit between the Atlas and a Skip/Flip option. For higher speed players, this would be a benchmark asym.Box Surface - 500/2000 SiaairColor - Black/Red/Yellow • Recommended Cleaner - Powerhouse Clean N’ Dull   www.columbia300.com

Columbia 300 Explosion (WWRD 1/27/2023)

 

Welcome to 2023! I hope you all had and continue to have a great holiday season!
Jumping right into the new release stage is Brunswick, Columbia300, Ebonite and Radical. We hear many times, why isn’t there something new or why are you remaking that ball again? Truth is there’s only so much can happen in 2.5 seconds as the ball goes down the lane. Matching up is the key to good scoring. Bowling continues to get new bowlers joining the experienced bowlers on the lanes and they have missed some great releases that could match up to their game, needs and growth. That being said, here are some familiar techs as well as some changes to bring different ball motions and reaction shapes to the new year. Core numbers noted below are at 15lbs. All bowling balls (except Polys) have a 2 year warranty from the date of purchase.

Columbia 300 Explosion

Columbia300 brings back the Resurgence core. This time is wrapped in the Reflex Hybrid coverstock. The surface is textured at 500/2000 Siaair which helps ball get a strong overall hook in medium to heavy volumes. High rev players and 2 handers could see this as an option in their bags as the lanes transition. The colors are a nice mix of Black/Purple/Emerald. The C300 Explosion is a budget friendly choice for all bowlers. Versatility and the added hitting power of DynamiCore, the C300 Explosion could be your new benchmark ball.
