The Ransom Demand is the newest addition to Columbia 300’s Value Performance line of bowling balls. This new ball utilizes the same Full Swing core that was used in the Ransom, but this one is wrapped in a new solid reactive coverstock called Super Tilt Solid 2.0. This coverstock change gave us a difficult decision for picking which pattern we wanted to use to graph this bowling ball.

After a little debate, we decided we liked it just a little bit more on the heavy test pattern. The longer test pattern provided extra hold and higher ratings. The 4000 Abralon cover provided just enough traction in the oil, while still storing the majority of its energy for the breakpoint. All three testers were able to use the Ransom Demand at its box finish and consistently
