The Urge offers lots of firsts for Columbia 300. For starters, it is the first new ball in a new line and price point structure for Columbia 300. This ball lands in the new Orange Line performance category, which is where the Melt Down and Throw Down currently reside. The Urge also utilizes a new core design, the Iron Man core, that has a slightly lower RG than the SD Medium RG core and more flare potential than either it or the Hi-Dynamix core used in the Mad Antics. The only thing that is not new on this ball is the AR350 Hybrid coverstock. This cover was previously used on the Mad Antics. This time, it comes out of the box at a 2000 grit polished finish.
