Can't say how much I am enjoying this ball. It is super controllable through the fronts and mids, with a smooth transition off friction. GREAT for straighter angles through friction. Definitely worth a try. Does not disappoint, exactly what you'd expect out of a symmetrical pearl!

Drilled two of these... one is pin under my ring finger, a 4 inch pin from my axis, and one pin up, a 5 inch pin. The pin down one was 2-3 feet sooner than the pin up one and was smoother off the back of the pattern. I was able to open my angles much more with the pin up one knowing it would make it back, the pin down was better when I moved left, and used less rotation to control the lane. They will work very well together!

I found the C300 Juke would get through the fronts very well and had a sharp snap on the backend. I was able to open up the lanes when the backends got really aggressive which allowed me to swing this ball a little to the right knowing it was going to recover.

Columbia 300 Juke is one of the most responsive pieces I've seen in quite a long time. This ball has no problem clearing the fronts and stores enough energy to get the corners out. This ball is perfect for someone bowling in a drier house or for a competitive bowler bowling on the burn. The C300 Juke has definitely found a spot in my bag!

This ball is SO SMOOTH. It's very controllable through the front to middle part of the lane and has really smooth backend motion. It just rolls right into the pocket. This ball doesn't move too much for me(I don't hook it a ton as it is) but it's something great to go to when patterns start to burn up. Very predictable!

I drilled this on the label with a 3' o'clock pin placement with 3/4 fingers and 3/4 side weight.
nice smooth reaction for light/med oil. Please keep in mind that I have a RARE inverted high roll track and get 380 RPM on the ball. Ball speed 15 MPH

The Columbia300 Juke is a great mid range ball. This ball gets threw the front of the lane so smooth an clean an has plenty of energy in the back end to still hit hard. This ball is great rolling on a medium to dry lanes. This ball is always in my bag.

Holy angle! Clean through the fronts, and strong backend. I like this ball because I can use it on the fresh, but when they start to get tight down lane later in the block, I can circle around back to it and open up them up without losing carry. A must have for your bag!

I drilled my Juke 70 x 4 ½ x 40. This ball is clean through the heads, good mid-lane read and strong continuous back-end. As a rev dominant player, I did not see any need for help with the dry for good recovery. This will be a good second ball out of the ball for most league bowlers.

This ball is very clean thru the front and has good kick in the backend. It doesn't read early with the out of box surface saving all it's energy for the back end. I do say it handles some oil in the heads. Open your angles a bit and strike away. Excellent hitting power for the price point.

This ball has quickly became one of my favorites in the bag. With my ball speed and rev rate (450+) I lean towards more Symmetrical balls just because I feel they give me more drilling options let me get out of the ball what I put into it. Sometimes with Asym. balls they are to much or too early for league and lower volume patters for me. This ball does not have that problem. This ball is very clean through the front of the lane and still retains good energy to be strong down lane and explodes into the pocket. This ball makes a big change in direction off the drys and be confident it will be a great ball for league or later in the block of a tournament!! Another solid Yellowline release from Columbia 300

This is a great symmetrical ball. Very clean through the front with nice down lane motion. Recommended on house shots and medium to short sport patterns. Also the color combination makes it a nice ball to look at.

This ball is Special when you want a ball to get you through the fronts and yet still have a controlled and strong down lane reaction. The "Vow" cover with the modified "Smack Down" core make a great combination for the bowlers that want to Juke their competition for the WIN!!!! (Sorry couldn't resist)

Such a unique ball motion for me. When I first got this ball, I expected a longer angular flippy motion and was surprised in a good way when the ball was very controlled overall. Not a high end ball, not a low end ball. Very useful on medium conditions.

Columbia 300 has provided us with the must have for the league bowler. Great back-end motion that allows for multiple angles to the pocket. I personally like to play straighter so it gives me a predictable strong back-end of the end of the pattern. It is a go to ball when you need to square up and not sacrifice drive. Get it you wont be sorry!

If you need a ball that rolls great in the midlane and gives you a sharp back end motion. Then look no further. This is the ball for you to do this with! Great on any lane condition that you will throw it on!

This ball is something I feel Columbia was missing which was a strong pearl that reads the midlands and starts a little sooner than most pearls but won't necessarily start in s roll from the get go like the Tyrant Pearl. I'm able to get left and get my ball to change direction very nicely on the house shot. Ball drives through the pins a little better than pearls bc of it setting up a little sooner. This ball will be good for shorter to medium patterns. The name says it all, it will Juke the oil pattern for maximum performance.

This ball responds very aggressively off of the dry. It starts its roll a little sooner than some pearls, but still has an incredible amount of backend. If you're looking for something you can get left with later in the day and still have it hit like a truck, the Juke is for you!

I would recommend this ball to bowlers looking for something just above the Side Swipe Pearl. The motion is a little different, but this JUKE really drives through the pins. I was surprised as with "weaker" balls and I have to move in I tend to lose some drive and carry. This ball clears the fronts well and in a little earlier than the Side Swipe Pearl. Again the drive through the pins is what impressed me. I give it 4 stars just due to the fact I need the last to be a little drier in order to use. When there is fresh it clears the fronts too well and I tend to throw it through the break point. But once they break down a little I was able to continue striking balling down to the JUKE.
This is a must have if you liked the Side Swipe Pearl and have a need for when the lanes break down or are just light to medium oil.

Another great addition to the Columbia 300 line. The Juke for me is much cleaner than the sideswipe but packs the same punch. One of the cleanest balls through the fronts I own right now. If you're struggling with drier conditions this is a ball you want to consider heavily.

I was a huge fan of the Side Swipe Solid and this ball is it's bigger brother. More mid lane roll and stronger backend motion. The colors are very appealing and everyone I have seen go down the lane has caught my eye. This for me is a great fit when the Impulse is just too strong and the Side Swipe Solid isn't going through the pins quite enough to get the corners out.

GET A JUKE! This ball is a great symmetrical pearl ball for any house shot. It gives me the ability to play straighter angles on medium to dry oil patterns and still give the carry I'm looking for. I used it in a sport shot league also on a short pattern and gave me the predictability I was looking for. Not to mention is looks great rolling down the lane with the eye catching green and blue color scheme. The bend-it cover stock helps make it the perfect mid-performance ball for anyone looking to expand their arsenal.

This ball is wonderful for all types of house shots and plays well from the front part of the lane to the end. You can drill it any way you want and get good energy through the pins every shot. Works well on short and medium patterns and even if you dull it up and put it in some oil it we react well as well. Just over all a great ball to have in the bag.

Today is the day!!! the C300 Juke is available in your local pro shops. I have thrown it for a couple of weeks on various house shots, and here is my review...
- nice colors (green/yellow/purple)
- I love the Bend it coverstock in general, and this doesn't disappoint
- gets down the lane real nice
- nice pop down the lane, but a little weaker than the Side Swipe
- Will be loved by fans of smooth symmetric balls with some, not a lot, of pop down the lane
- Great performance overall from a MP bowling ball

Don't miss out on this gem, you won't be disappointed. #teamc300 #letsbowl #juke
