Dark Encounter


Bowling the world over just got easier with Columbia 300's Dark Encounter.

Elastin 7.5 Solid

The Elastin chemical breakthrough carries in 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.

Encounter Core
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.

What To Expect

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.
