The Swerve FX is the new pearl-covered release in Columbia 300’s Red Line collection. The FX is the second ball to feature the HyperSHOCK Technology outer core system and the Swerve inner core design. This ball has a new pearl coverstock called Reflex Pearl that comes out of the box at a 2000 grit polished finish. The change in coverstock and box finish give this ball much more length and a sharper change of direction at the dry than the original Swerve.

The Swerve FX’s longer and sharper motion was best on our medium test pattern. Stroker liked that he could play straighter to the pocket with this ball. He could get fast with his ball speed and still see the Swerve FX turn over strong into
