Columbia 300 Wicked Encounter Bowling Ball
Columbia 300 Wicked Encounter
Description: The new Elastin coverstock provides a new motion characteristic for this category that Columbia 300 fans have been asking for… more overall hook! Once again, the Elastin cover along with the Encounter core are a great combination for strong hook and wicked strikes!
Product Rating: (5.00)
Just plain nasty. This ball loves oil and the recovery of this ball is sick. This ball go long and come back with bad intentions. I have used it in league and the hitting power and the way this ball rolls turn heads. Another home run from Columbia 300. The only thing that hurt this ball was the release of the Enigma. It take to cover adjustments very well and a ball I love to throw.
The first Wicked Encounter I drilled is 4.5” Pin x 60* MB (Pin Down) and the surface is 1000 Abralon. This ball is slightly cleaner through the front part of the lane then the Dark Encounter but has a much stronger angle and continuation through the pins. The second Wicked Encounter I drilled is 30* x 5 ¾ x 30* and the surface is box plus Powerhouse factory finish polish. This ball skids down the lane more than the original Encounter, Dark Encounter, Omen, & Benchmark… But has more backend and the most continuation through the pins that I’ve every seen from any bowling ball on the market. Seems like no matter how far in the pattern sent me that ball still had energy to recover down lane. My Specs: Ball Speed: 17.5 MPH Rev Rate: 300 RPM Axis Rotation Angle: 45* Axis Tilt: 10* PAP: Over 4, Up 3/8 Average: 232
I managed to get this ball a month before it's released, and it's a monster. On a house shot, it outhooks my hy-road and my versa-max (which are both great balls too) and on a sport shot (44 foot London pattern) it hooked to much. Another home run from Columbia!
