Boost your game with the value priced Columbia Nitrous. This performance ball combines the predictability of the two-price Nitrous core and joins it with the gripping power of the Boost/R coverstock. This ball is best used on medium to light oiled lanes and is ideal for any bowling skill level or style.
Nitrous - Is a new Green Line product that not only fits your wallet or purse but is also very pleasing to the eye. The new Boost/R cover comes in 4 color variations. I chose the Black/Silver because the color scheme more or less jumped out at me. It has the same bite on the lanes that Columbia owners have come to insist upon.
The Nitrous also introduced a new 2-piece core design that offers the same solid hitting power found in C300 balls while also adding predictability throughout the entire lane. This cover/core cohesiveness, along with the very affordable price tag are the reasons you need to pick one up.
My Nitrous is drilled with the pin above and between the fingers. This setup permits me to not only use it on lighter house patterns but also on the tougher Kegel Challenge and other lower volume Sport patterns. It is very clean through the front and picks up really well at 40 - 45 feet. Being more of an "up the lane" kinda guy, I have not pushed the limit and try to use it deep inside. I can say however, that as I migrate from outside of the 5 board to about 15, I do not lose any carry.
All in all, this ball is a part of my traveling arsenal and feel it complements the pieces that I currently have in my bag. The Nitrous is definitely a bowling bag that you can afford to buy and cannot afford to be without.

Is this ball stronger than the motiv graffiti tag1/11/2019 - By Xo
I am currently throwing a Track LX16. Pin above and outside of the right finger. Also the my track is just left of the finger holes. 13mph. Will the Columbia be stronger on the back end?2/12/2019 - By Tweener
Your Track ball will be much more aggressive than this Nitrous for the Track ball is a high performance ball and the Nitrous is only a mid performance ball.2/13/2019 - By Bowling.Com Staff
I throw a Tropical Breeze 12lb ball. Have minor hook and carry. Would the Nitrous 12 lb ball work better for me?3/6/2019 - By jim h
What is the differance between the 10-11 and the 12=16 lb. in action3/27/2019 - By Rusty
On the 10-11lb there is a generic weight block that is used. The 12-16lb Columbia uses the Nitrous core. The only difference in performance comes from the different weight blocks. The lighter weight bowling balls have a slightly lower hook rating because of the different weight block but the difference is very small. They still have same coverstock and finish so you would get a similar reaction.3/27/2019 - By Bowling.Com Staff
Would the nitrous complement the Columbia Chaos?5/5/2019 - By RAdkins
I use a AMF double clutch ball 15lb. I throw around 15mph and mostly release on right side of lane with low revs. Would the nitrous be better at improving my hook into the pocket or get me to move in to the left side of the lane more than sticking to the right side.8/8/2019 - By Gpaw
How does the Nitrous compare to the 300 Beast for hook and powwer ?10/11/2019 - By Jenna
The Beast line is essentially replacing the Nitrous line in the mid performance line for lighter oil conditions. They have very comparable hook potential and reactions on the lane.10/15/2019 - By Bowling.Com Staff
