Columbia is reintroducing the Beast line with a light bulb shape Beast core and Bend-It coverstock. This ball also includes Columbia's HyperShock Technology known for powering the ball through the pins. This ball was designed to give a skid/flip reaction on lightly oiled lanes.
The Beast is most definitely back!! Like the original, the ball rolls clean through the front half of the lane, and then picks up into a skid/flip yet consistent, continuous angular motion at the breakpoint thanks to the updated Bend It light bulb core and drives hard through the pins with the patent pending Hypershock Technology coverstock. This is the first time this coverstock has been put into a low-mid performance bowling ball as it was originally used in high performance balls such as the Swerve line and and Tyrants. Other nice touches done to the new Beast line are the variety of bright colors to choose from, including the classic purple sparkle, as well as the original Columbia 300 logo.
I put my favorite pin over ring with CG kicked out slightly on my Beast and it not only exceeded my expectations in overall performance, but I was also surprised by how versatile this ball was while throwing on a fresh THS. The one thing this ball did not do for me was overreact when it responded to friction, which is going to be crucial towards the end of the day when the lanes are burning up and also on shorter oil patterns.
Is this ball is drill or not ?9/16/2019 - By Lee
We offer drilling for this ball or you could have it drilled locally after you receive the ball. Most customers will not know their measurements so they will need to get the ball without drilling so they can have it drilled locally.9/24/2019 - By Bowling.Com Staff
