The Command is a strong asymmetric pearl, which together creates excellent mid-lane and continuation. The core and cover are all-new and have been developed to produce more motion from a shiny pearl than seen before in the Columbia 300 line.

This ball is clean through the fronts and does not disappoint in the backend reaction. This layout does not too much flip for me on the backend but has great continuation. I had the same layout on my Prism Hybrid because the core shape seemed very similar. The reaction is pretty close to what I had before, but a little cleaner and more angular because of the pearl coverstock. It would be good for medium oil volumes.
This pearl got my attention with the new core an coverstock. This pearl gets down the lane smooth an still has plenty of energy to read the end of the pattern an drive through the pins hard.
The super high performance skid/flip pearls are typically not the best types of balls for my style and what I like to see on the lanes, but the Command is a brand of skid/flip that I can actually use. I am somewhat rev dominant, so the big skid/flip balls are typically hard to manage in the back, but the Command actually does a really good job of blending the lanes while maintaining a sharp entry angle. It still does what it is intended to do, like get through the front and create angle down-lane, but it doesn't sacrifice control to do so. I also think this would be a good ball for speed dominant players looking for a strong pearl. Because it won't blast through the front and never enter a good roll. The ball has some teeth, so I consider it to be a lot more useful than your typical skid/flip ball.
The C300 Command was a definitely a fun piece to test drive. This ball has plenty of length and create a whole bunch of angle at the pin deck. We were actually able to throw multiple messengers in a 70 year old building...on natural wood...with original kickbacks... Nice to see C300 release a skid flip piece that hits like a tank.
