Columbia has taken the success of the original Freeze line and modified it a bit to create the Deep Freeze. The densities of the Messenger core have been altered to raise the RG a little and lower the differential significantly. These modifications help create a ball that will go longer and be more controllable on dry lane conditions. Columbia has combined the Modified Messenger core with the same proven New Era coverstock.
The ball is very contolable but is not a great strike ball. I tried outside, down and in and even inside and could not find a strike line.
Bought one yesterday, had it drilled and used it at league with no practice. Shot a 678 with twenty strikes. Picking up ten pins was no problem. Goes long and recovers nicely. Very controllable. Never had to worry about too much flip. Only had to move one and a half boards left from the first to the last game.
