Great 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.

Great for developing bowler.

This week will be my 1 year anniversary. All 3 of my league avgerage are between 159 to 161. Got this ball last week on league night a tried it on the last frame and it felt a little uncomfortable.
I have practiced daily with it and my other new ball. Last night I decided to go with it no matter what. It was great. After adjustments during the first game ( a 179), and my line being burned up by 3 power rollers, did it's power came to life. A 244 and a 255.
The lanes were medium oil and I was throwing down and in using the 15 board. Up to 2 boards inside and it gave a devastating Brooklyn, on mark the pin action was awesome.
My best ball speed seemed to be at 17mph. Love the ball. Sunday it'll be the first ball up because the lanes at the other house tend to be a little drier.

Have an answer to this question?

Answer: Hello Luis. Any X-Out ball will have either of the following: an irregular overall weight of the ball, an irregular pin/top weight, or a slight surface blemish. It will have one of those three things maybe. This ball will have none of those.
