Spoiler Alert! This ball is a must have. With the trusted bend-it cover stock and an all new core this ball is a double whammy for a mid-level price point ball. It gives you a strong arc without losing momentum at the heads and finishes thru the pins hard. This ball has become one of my top picks for my bag for each of the 4 leagues I bowl in different houses. It works well everywhere and on just about everything and for the mid-level price point you get a high-level performing ball. Don't miss out on this deal and grab one from your local pro-shop today!

New to Columbias Yellow Line collection, the Spoiler features the well known Bend-It Solid coverstock along with a new core. Nice eye catching blue/green cover combo that looks good going down the lane.
I decided to drill it like my trusty Severe Delirium that was always a great ball to start out with. Pin above the bridge with both the pin and CG on the midline. For me this puts the pin 5 from my PAP. Even with the box finish of 2000 Abralon, this setup still gets the ball through the heads but has that midlane move and heavy roll that I loved with the Severe Delirium. Ball gets through the heads great, surprising some on how long I can use it when the heads are going away.  Love having that look and reaction bag in my bag.
The Bend-It coverstock has proven to be quite versatile, so you could certainly adjust it for more length and angle if so desired. I love using it on THS and play farther right / straighter angles on fresh and then move in when the heads start to go away.  Also has proven to be a great ball for playing controllable lines on sport shots.
