Columbia Discloses Disruption, Antics and Smack Down, New Balls Coming in July

 The new Columbia 300 Antics is covered in vibrant hues of Forest/Royal/ Cherry/Yellow, the cover is called AR 300, as in Awesome Reaction 300. The Columbiadescribes the veneer as: “AR 300 cover is cleaner through the front of the lane than previous high performance releases and unleashes some awesome backend motion.” ARS is finished 500 Abranet™, 3000 Abralon™, and Powerhouse™ Factory Finish Polish. The “engine” of the new Antics is the Hi-Dynamix core, one of the most dynamic cores Columbia has ever produced. With a medium RG, High Differential and High Mass bias, the Antics core helps the ball produce awesome mid lane and backend motion.

The Columbia 300 Smack Down utilizes Bring-It Hybrid Purple/ Silver/Purple Pearl coverstock prepped 500, 500 Abranet™, 2000, 2000 Abralon™. Columbiadescribes it: “This hybrid cover will run over any medium to heavy condition with a strong mid-lane motion and great continuation.” The Smack Down core (SD Medium Rg Core) has a medium Radius of Gyration and a high differential. Columbia also reports, “The medium RG helps the Smack Down get further down the lane before the high differential kicks in for some awesome continuation!”

Columbia 300 Disruption is wrapped in New Era Yellow / Indigo solid coverstock. New Era solid has never been used before as the sole ingredient in a Columbia cover. The cover is finished 800 Abranet™, 1000, 2000 Abralon®, Powerhouse™ Factory Finish. The Resurgence Core is the guts of the Disruption. Columbia said “The low RG and Medium Differential make this a great choice for all styles.”

Columbia 300 adds two Freeze balls. The Columbia Freeze for 2014 with a modified version of the Messenger core as has been used in the line since it's inception - which could arguable be the most successful core in Columbia 300 history. The Freeze is wrapped in the Ne2 shell. Two new cover colors: Navy/Purple/Yellow and Blue/Orange/Green finished with 4000 and Polished.
