The pins are about to experience a Dark Encounter!
The Elastin chemical breakthrough carries on with the Dark Encounter. The original Encounter featured a pearl version of the revolutionary Elastin coverstock at a strength of 6.0 out of 10. The chemical engineers at Columbia 300 have taken this technology to a new level by creating even larger pores and increasing the length of the polymer chains in a solid version of Elastin.
The Encounter core is the same dynamic core found in the original Encounter. Bowlers have come to love the Encounter core for the performance it provides through strong and versatile performance characteristics.
Columbia 300 has taken ultimate traction in oil to the next level with the new Elastin 7.5 Solid coverstock without sacrificing great backend motion. The proven core along with a great new cover will provide the big hook you??™ve been looking for.
