The Columbia 300 Mad Antics is the fourth introduction in the Antics line for Columbia 300. This is the second time a hybrid coverstock has been used, but the AR350 Hybrid is a much stronger formulation than what was used in the original Antics. The Mad Antics also uses the core shape from the Crazy Antics, which produces more flare than the Hi-Dynamix 2 core that was the engine of the N’S@ne Antics. Like the N’S@ne, the Mad is finished with Powerhouse Clean ‘N Sheen as the final finishing step. This combination of a super strong coverstock and a big flaring core make this Columbia 300 high performance ball suited best for medium to heavy volumes of oil.

Tweener liked his reaction best on the medium test pattern. His rev rate and ball speed was a near perfect match up on
