If you have a building urge to dominate the competition then you need the Columbia Raw Urge. The pairing of the Ironman core with the AR350 Solid coverstock was designed to give traction on the length of the lane on medium to heavy oil conditions.
The new Raw Urge by C300 is a must have for tournament bowlers. The AR350 solid coverstock wrapped around the Ironman core gives this ball strong, continuous, and predictable ball reaction.
My ball speed is 15mph and rev rate is 375.
I drilled this ball 65x4.5x70
I have thrown it on the THS, 2012 US Open Pattern, and on Mexico City.
This ball excelled for me on Mexico City. With the pattern being 45ft it read the pattern very well. The house shot and the US Open pattern it was a bit too strong and read the pattern a little too early. I have polished this ball up and it reacts very similar to the box finish. It definitely let me play the lanes straighter on the House shot and it didn't get jumpy with the added length and energy it saved with the polish.
What I love about this ball is how predictable it is and controllable. Don't confuse control with hook potential because this ball hooks a lot. For tournament bowlers bowling on tougher conditions that's what you want, control. You do not want a ball that is over/under and hard to read how the lanes are playing and transitioning. I also like how versatile the coverstock is to surface changes while keeping the same shape and predictability.
For someone looking for a new oil ball, or a tournament bowler looking for a piece of equipment that will read the lane to determine which direction to go this is a perfect choice.
The New C300 Raw Urge is a must have. This ball allows any style to strike a lot, it opens multiple angles and allows almost any part of the lane to be played, it has great back end continuation that explodes through the pins for great carry. I'm Left Handed, High Rev Rate, High Speed and drilled mine 45x5.25x40 and averaged 259 after 21 games in 3 different leagues with an 844 series! This ball will not disappoint.

RAW URGE – Wow is what you can start by saying after you get this gem. It is one aggressive piece for an Upper Mid performance ball. From the start you will like the continuance of the motion through the entire lane. The Raw Urge is a great compliment to the regular Urge with 3 main differences. First it is not skid/flip like the Urge. Secondly, it's not polished and lastly it has a solid cover versus the hybrid cover that is on the Urge. The numbers (RG, Dif & MB) on the Raw are the same and both use the Ironman core.
To describe my use I guess the best thing I can say is that in league play my lowest set has been 690. This is on a THS with moderate oil. The way the ball moves after making contact with the 1-3 is really fun to watch. My Raw Urge is 60 x 4 x 30 without a hole and because of the similarity in the drilling with my regular Urge and being perfect compliments to each other, both travel with me to bowl.
I just want to say that I think the Raw Urge has been the best new release since the original Delirium. Don't wait too long to get yours from your local pro shop.
I needed something to hook in medium to heavy oil. Works really well.
