You Need This In Your Bag

I loved the original Messenger, but was skeptical about this one. For the price I decided to give it a try. I am extremely happy I did. This ball is very smooth through the heads even when they're fried. It recovers well on the back end and hits like a truck. It is very versatile and predictable. I just bought 2 more of these and it will be the first ball out of the bag for me at my local house. I needed something for medium to light oil and this ball nailed it. Go buy 1 is all I can say.

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Columbia 300 Messenger, more than a low performance ball

I was expecting this to be a weaker ball based on the low RG (.021) but the cover stock enables this ball to get up and hit. It is faster than a lot of bowling balls but this one gets up and hit through the pin deck. This is good bowling ball made great by the low end price.

Question:

Does it hook and does it help you to get strikes

8/28/2019 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer:

This ball does have a hook potential in lighter oil conditions. With a little bit of hook you can get the ball to come into the pocket with a better entry angle and this helps the ball drive through the pins better and get more pin action leading to more strikes.
