About the Bowler

I got a Columbia blue dot last week it is a very good spare ball but if you try to get a hook on it like I do. I would recommend the Columbia white dot - good job Columbia you always impress me.

I own the Columbia Blue Dot bowling ball, the one in the pearl color. I love the way it handles, how smooth it goes down the lane regardless of whether you throw it straight or with a curve, like I do. This ball is the best ball I've ever thrown.

I never thought I would write a review for a spare ball, but the Columbia 300 Blue Dot is great! I have mostly used Target Zones and Viz-a-balls, and they seemed to skid a lot. This ball seems to actually roll instead of skid, but still keeps a straight path. If you hit your mark you will be rewarded. The nice thing is that is does respond every so slightly to dry boards, so for right-handed shooting at the 10, there is a little hold instead of going into the channel if you overshoot it. A really solid spare ball that I highly recommend. No wonder this is the one spare ball that has so many reviews.

It's a great "spare ball" if you're into that sort of thing. I like to use the same ball for strikes and spares, just changing speed and hand position, I don't have the highest rev rate anyways and for me, feel is more important. What I like it for is burned-up lanes. Instead of moving far left and out of my comfort zone, I can take this piece out and play lines I'm more comfortable with. Even if the lanes are not that dry, on a THS you can often find enough friction to throw strikes with this ball if you play far enough towards the edge. I've never had to take this one out during league (who knows, it could happen someday) but for something to practice with it's been great, and pin carry is actually pretty good if I'm nice to it at the bottom of the swing.

Rolls nice and straight. If would be even better if the Blue Dot were available in more colours and patterns. (In the modern version, the blue dot has been replaced by a clear pin.)

Owned this ball for several years, great spare ball! Hooks less than White dots or T-zones. Had to switch from right to left and had problems with speed control. This ball gave me the confidence to make my spare shooting more consistent!

About the Bowler

I have to say I like my Columbia 300 Blue Dot, but I find it hard to write a review for a ball that does the same thing for everyone, that being to roll straight. I haven't tried any other spare balls, but I'm sure there are no differences.

About the Bowler

I've personally enjoy using the Columbia 300 Blue Dot bowling ball because its been a great spare ball compared to the white dot series. This ball is great when there is a need to spare the 7th and 10th pin without having the ball hooking.

Can't go wrong with the Columbia 300 Blue Dot bowling ball. For textbook spare pickups, pick up this classic ball, kill the wrist, throw over your target, and you've got a straight path to the offending pin or pins, the way it was meant to be.
I use the silver Blue Dot on all spares except double wood with rear sleepers where the extra drive from a hook ball would help.
