Columbia 300 brings you the new Speed. We started with the successful Power Torq and set out to create a solid asymmetric motion, perfect for a first ball out of the bag or when symmetric balls like the Power Torq are too clean. The strength of the Speed comes from the all-new cover and core combination. The new Formula 1 cover uses chemistry similar to the popular ERT formulation, but our chemists used a new additive that promotes stronger adhesion throughout the entire lane. We combined the Formula 1 cover with the new super aggressive Shifter core to ensure significantly more overall hook than the Power Torq.

Versatile ball motion
The way this ball picks up in the mid lane but doesn’t burn up still amazes me. The continuous ball motion that I see makes this ball so versatile on many different conditions for myself. It is a bigger hybrid and intended for oil, but I am also able to get left with it when I start to notice the carry down, and slow roll without worrying about the Speed losing its energy on me. I’m also able to use this ball on shorter oil conditions as it blends the pattern out. This will be a favorite in my bags for a long time.
Columbia 300 Speed
The Columbia 300 Speed is a little different shape than what I usually like to see. It picks up pretty early which usually mean the ball is using its energy early and doesn't save much left for the pins. It's not really the case for this one. The Speed, although early and smooth, does have a good amount of hitting power through the pins. This ball will be good on heavy oil or for low rev players IMO. :-)
