Columbia 300 presents the Freeze Hybrid. This ball contains a modified version of the messenger core that was arguably one of the most successful cores in Columbia history. The Freeze is wrapped in a New Era Hybrid shell which is a perfect blend of solid and pearl materials designed to facilitate great length and a strong backend. This means Columbia has decided to combine a 2-piece core with a performance coverstock to create a unique reaction down the lane. Stop your opponents cold by ordering your Columbia 300 Freeze today!
The Freeze Hybrid was an addition to the lower mid line of Freezes this spring. It has the same proven Messenger core as the traditional Freezes, with a New Era Hybrid coverstock. This ball really expanded the line, along with the Freeze Solid, to give more diversity in ball motion to the same level of strength.
I really liked the motion the Freeze Hybrid gave me. It fit right in between the Solid and the original in terms of both strength and length. The Hybrid got down the lane and took a controlled yet strong move towards the pins, especially for such a weak ball. Compared to the original, it is 1-2 feet earlier and 2-3 boards more pop at the back of the pattern. This would be a great ball for late in the day or for low volume house patterns. For some, the original Freezes are too weak. This ball would certainly fill that hole to where the ball is certainly weak enough to get through the dry patches, but still would have enough at the back end to react nicely. I look forward to using this on beat up patterns and lower volume patterns that I may face. I have seen very good things out of the Freeze Hybrid!

The Freeze Hybrid works extremely well on dryer lane conditions. It has a nice arc through the midlane and has a lot of energy at the break point. I personally shot 300 with this ball only 2 weeks after drilling it. My drilling is 60 degrees X 5 inches X 35 degrees

Overall, a very good ball- I had to take the top off the ball to get it to really cut over. If you throw a spinner @ 20+ MPH this ball just does not have enough out of the box- once I got the top layer off the ball, it worked much better.
I have only bowled 8 games with this ball, I'm still having to tweek some things, but over all I'm very happy with this ball. It takes alot of geting used to a new ball when I haven't had one in more than 10 years. I use this ball as the lanes start to dry out somewhat. This would be a great ball for upgrading your old one.
This was a perfect ball. I haven't bowled in years and this got me bowling strikes like it was yesterday.

Compared to the original, it is 1-2 feet earlier and 3-5 boards more pop at the back of the pattern. This would be a great ball for most of the house shots out there right now.

This ball is exactly what Columbia 300 needed! With the success of the Freeze and how much bang for the buck you got this is a perfect compliment! I drilled this one 60" x 5 x 60* like one of my Violent Eruptions and the same as my Original Freeze. The hybrid is slightly cleaner through the front part of the lane with a little sharper motion but maybe 2-3 boards less overall hook as the original, which is perfect giving C300 fans a ball that's just a little tamer than the Freeze and Eruptions! Also great for anyone starting out with their first finger tip bowling ball or upgrading from an older outdated ball!

I use product on a Weds. night league.
The ball really hooks hard on the backend, creates good pin action
Real good ball for.Dry Lanes
I bought this for my daughter I wanted a ball that did not hook to much and can be used on dry lanes. this ball works well.
i have been out of bowling for 15 or so years. i bought a ball from a friend which rolled realy good hit hard but big percentage of ten pins, 9 pins, 8 pins. this ball rolls nice hits hard and my carry is much better on pocket shots. i used to carry mid 190's a couple years ago on a summer league i carried lower 170's missing bowling a couple more years and this summer i was mid 170's after getting the freeze drilled i upped my average to 180 and my spare shooting is improving also.
great ball up the 10th board. really good hitting power. can swing it with less oil.
it arrived much quicker than expected...thanks for that.
Had it drilled locally, wish I had had them make a bit more aggressive.
Average improved, just wish I had gotten a 12 lb. Love the color and it has bowled 3 times or more a week and is holding up with just a few nicks and scrapes.
I am really pleased with this ball. Has already improved my average.
is there some information on teqniques for using this product effectively
Just what I needed.
I bowl in a small center that is still wood believe it or not. This ball is great on wood lanes especially if it isn't drilled aggressively. The center is putting in synthetics next year and then it will be time to purchase something more aggressive.
I am a high school bowler, and this ball really cuts through the oil. I personally love to see it when I'm two- handing and putting tons of revs on it.
This ball has become the first ball out of the bag.
I think the core is not the best. I wanted a ball that rotated easier and had this ball drilled a little strong. The ball rotation is not strong enough to last all the way near the pins. This could be caused by my throwing technique. That is the problem with bowling is identifying the cause of a problem, but the ball did not help.
I bought this for my 7 year old son as an upgrade to his Polyester White Dot. He loves it and averaged 140 with it for his first 3 games.
