All I can say is this ball is not for the beginner.  This ball is a total monster on the lane.  It hits the pins like a stick of dynamite. The second week I bowled a 280, 221, 299 =800 series .  The only thing I can say bad about this ball is it does not work on dry lanes.

Weight - 15 lbs
Pin to CG - 2.5"
Top weight - around 3 oz.
Surface - 1000 abralon (box)

Layout - Drilling #4 - Length w/ Sharp Backend

Reaction - Strong Midlane w/ aggressive backend

Comments:

This ball is a monster that definitely needs oil in the heads and midlane to work properly.  I used different surfaces, but the box finish is where this ball is at it's finest.  Taking the surface up or adding polish just made this ball too aggressive on the backend.  Compared to my Rival drilled the same way, it was about 5-7 boards more aggressive, most of it on the back part of the lane.  Even with the length drill, this ball needs oil in the front or it burns up and oil in the midlane to control the backend.  But when there's oil with a friction point down the lane to throw it to, this ball is unstoppable.  At the end of last season, one house in town changed from an old BW synthetic to the new Anvilane Pros, and the lanes played really slick for the first few weeks until they got all of the lanes in.  The last night in league, I shoot 1007 with this ball for 4 games and was a factor in taking home about $1100 dollars that night.  The only problem is that I don't get to use it that often because Tucson has an oil shortage this year.  

This is definitely a high maintenance ball, if you don't take clean it regularly, it will lose it's reaction rather quickly.  The other thing is that it definitely tells you when it's time to bag it.

15lb.
Pin drilled to right of ring finger (right hander)
CG kicked out to the right
Factory Finish 1000 Abralon

Tried this ball out last night during practice before the lanes were oiled and trust me, you do not want to throw this on these types of conditions.  I am a tweener and the lanes definitely need oil for this monster.  Fortunately, after a game, the oil comes and BOOM!  This ball had no problem getting through the heads and screaming back to the pocket.  If this ball hits flush, it will sound like you threw a bomb at the deck.  Also, this ball has good carry.  I had a couple of soft hits and and it still manages to get all the pins down.  I scored a 202, 265, and a 245 with it last night (out of the box).  I practiced with 3 other bowlers and after 3 games, I had to put the ball back in the bag and bring out the Action Max.  

The only thing I see with this ball is that since it tears through the oil so much, I'm ammusing that I will have to take the ball to the proshop at least every 45 days to get it cleaned up.  Other then that, if you are looking for a ball that eats up oil for breakfast and spits out pins for dinner, GET THE RESURGENCE!

This ball is an absolute monster. It outhooks my N'tense LevRG which has a double thumb layout. This is a great heavy oil ball, mainly because it turns the corner extremely hard. Layout in profile. The only ball that has a stronger motion on heavy oil is the Virtual Gravity.
Patterns to use:
Heavy volume
Long and flat patterns
Shark Pattern
Cheetah Pattern (early burn)

Bought this ball two years ago and it's the best ball I've ever owned.  Best hitting and carry for a ball ever.  Had it drilled to go long a break in the back end.  The carry is excellent and very low maintence.

I hate to post negative posts but..... I didn't like this one. It didn't read THS well. It was inconsistent in the mid-lane. Weak on the back end, and didn't carry well. Didn't last long.

I agree with the post from a while back 11/24/2007. Please do not sand this ball I encountered the same results. I should have kept the out of box finish before altering the surface. My Resurgence is 15.3 or 15.4, with a 2 pin and about 2.5 to 3ozs of top weight. I have it drilled straight up with the pin above and centered directly between my ring and middle fingers. I throw about 18 to 19 mph with medium to high revs. When I purchased my Resurgence I immediately placed it in my bowling centers polish machine for 10 minutes for an extremely high gloss finish and compared to my other mid-line Columbia equipment Wrath Xp, and Action it went 60 feet. After that I proceeded to take an ordinary grocery store green Scotch-Brite pad and removed the polish, bad idea. I probably lost about seven to eight boards of hook from its original box finish before using it on a consistent basis.

 

After throwing it dull only in practice and for whatever reason I don't know, I proceeded to polish it again for only about a minute or two and began to use it in my one and only league at the time and actually scored pretty well with it. I stood about 17 or 18 probably drifted to about 20 or 21 during release, while aiming at about nine at the dots going as wide as four or five at the arrows. The reaction I got was a smooth hard arc to the pocket with continuing drive through the pins. I finished the season with a 231 avg, a high set of 794 and a high game of 299.

 

I found out after altering the cover stock more than once the Resurgence became extremely game sensitive. I haven't polished this ball for almost two years and probably won't ever again my ball reaction with a dull shine and rejuvenation is perfect. I have to rejuvenate it every 27 to 30 games or it will leave me pocket 7, 9 and pocket 5, 10 splits forever and a day, but after rejuvenation its a beast for pin carry playing down and in.  This is now the first ball out of my bag for average house patterns. Id love to find a brand new Resurgence and see what type of reaction I would get fresh out of the box without altering the surface.

Pulled the ball out last week after a year of not using it, and after two practice shots noticed my ball was cracked, the second Resurgence to crack.  I contacted Columbia, and was stunned that they will replace it with a Burst (a update of the Resurgence).  Columbia couldn't have been nicer, thanks.
The first two were fantastic.
