The Columbia Sideswipe is part of their Yellow Line collection. This ball takes the Sideswipe core and combines it with their proven Bend-It Pearl coverstock to create an affordable performance ball that will provide good length and a strong and consistent backend reaction on medium oil lanes.
The sideswipe is exactly was is reads. It sideswipes the pins and the competition. the sideswipe is great on medium oil patterns, it has a clean front end motion with lots of backend curve and continuation that's very predictable. This ball makes moves much easier. Sideswipe still contains the bend-it pearl coverstock which has been a monster.
I was a surprised how this ball started up in the oil even shiny. For me it is better shiny on a flatter pattern and just a little surface on THS
I have used Side Swipe in tournaments and the ball literally goes sideways. I have watched my teammates and friends use that ball and it looks amazing for higher rev bowlers.
