Interesting video. Do you have one of these balls? I just might have to pick one up if it works as good as they say it is.

I do have one, its a keeper for me.
I watch my ball to see what it does when it encounters the friction.
that gives me information on what i did right or wrong
I also watch my ball go through the pins, and you can definitely tell by watching this go through the pins
I was on a high volume, medium sport pattern last week with it and it was very predictable and strong in the correct part of the lane
Carry was very good

with any ball, you cant be afraid to alter the surface to fit your needs, I happen to be able to use it at its OBB finish which is 2000 dull, after 5 or 6 shots, its lane shined up anyways

Well, I ordered one. I might get it on Thursday. I'll report back on how it works.

I don't think it available until 9-15-15
if you trust your Pro Shop, they should ask you what conditions you want this piece for.
if its a normal house shot, you must learn to move your feet and target once the lane pattern starts to go away
also, all balls really, require maintenance, make sure you get a decent cleaner and clean after every use
these dull balls soak up the oil like a sponge
you may need to get it baked in 40-50 games depending on how oily your place is
ans surface adjustments are common these days, so don't be afraid to go and see your shop if its to much or to little
its a normal and easy adjustment
ball surface is the single most influential thing that affects ball motion

They've added some enhancement to the core material as stated in the video. I'm thinking that this is similar to the concept of Storm's mention of coefficient of restitution for some of their equipment like the Hy-Road. Not sure what other models have a high COR. Looks interesting...

Yeah, Hyroads get this by not having outer core filter, seems that C300 is messing with outer core additives. Why not?

The weight block is fairly unremarkable, sort of typical RG and Diff numbers for a top shelf ball, with a lower mass bias that makes the ball act like a symmetric core.
