Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Excellent ball for the price.

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.

Question:

Is drilling free with ball purchase?

5/30/2016 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer:

We do not currently offer drilling on this ball. This ball would have to be drilled after you receive it at a local proshop. If we start offering drilling for the ball, the drilling option would have the price out beside the drilling option.

Question:

Is this ball good for beginners? I am a woman who recently started bowling.

Have an answer to this question?

Answer:

Hi Helen. This should be a good ball to start with. Since you are a beginner, we recommend either the entry level performance balls or the mid performance balls.

what is the definition of mid level performance?

Mid level performance is when the ball will have a medium hook and you can learn how to hook it more and more and move up in performance levels.
