The Columbia Sideswipe Solid is part of their Yellow Line collection. This ball takes the Sideswipe core and combines it with their proven Bend-It Solid coverstock to create an affordable performance ball that will provide good overall hook when facing longer oil patterns and higher oil volumes.
The new Side Swipe Solid by Columbia 300 is scheduled to release in your local pro shops on January 24. It is the solid version of the successful Side Swipe. It has the same Side Swipe core with the Bend-it coverstock, which is a great combo. I have used it for a few weeks now on various THS and on a few patterns, and it has nice early pick up, and hooks from every where. Great addition to your arsenal, especially for the upper-mid price point. If this is the motion you are looking for, don't skip this bowling ball...
Compared to the original Sideswipe this ball has the same predictable backend motion but with more traction in the middle of the lane, creating more overall hook. Great ball to start on fresh THS.
