The benchmark reaction is something that bowlers have come to expect from Columbia 300 for decades. Columbia 300 has been the bowler's choice for benchmark bowling balls so often throughout history that we decided to finally call the ball what it really is... the Benchmark!
The engineers at Columbia 300 understand that when naming a ball the Benchmark, the performance has to live up to its name. New Standard Reactive provides the perfect amount of traction in order to work on most typical house patterns and a great variety of tournament patterns. One of the four colors poured in the Benchmark is a pearl silver color, making it a Hybrid and creating the right amount of length.
The Columbia 300 Tri-Rib core is symmetric in shape with a medium RG and medium to high Differential. The Tri-Rib core provides the numbers you look for in a Benchmark ball and will work with the widest variation of styles.
The 4000 grit Abralon finish applied to N.S.R. Hybrid along with the Tri-Rib core creates a great amount of mid-lane read and continuation through the backend. The Benchmark will work on most typical league patterns and medium volume tournament patterns.
