Finish: Box, 1000 Abralon
Layout: 45 x 4 1/2 x 65
PAP: 4 1/8 over, 5/8 up
Speed: 26 kmh
Revrate: 460 RPM

Ball review:

I went with a pin down layout with a balance hole (5 across, 2 down) to smooth out the ball motion, as the original Phobia was very skid / snap for me.

The Fierce Phobia is a terrific addition to the upper-mid Range from Hammer Bowling. The ball offers alot of control and is in play on a variety of different patterns from all over the lane.

My recommendation – a terrific all-rounder suited to all players, whether it be league nights on House Shots or Tournament Patterns. This ball will almost always be in play.

Ball review:

The Rip’d is a pearl version of the Rip’d solid. With this ball i can stay closer to the dry part of the lane, and use this on shorter or lighter oil pattern. I drilled it the same as the Rip’d solid so it was easyer to compare with the Solid.
It react really well to hand changes, i can play straight with it and i can hook the hole lane with its aswell

Ball review

Track have done something different with this core they have put in this ball.
You can drill it so it has a high asymmetric core or you can drill it so its symmetric.
I drilled my ball in between so its a medium strong int. diff.
Its a nice strong predictable dull ball with a nice strong read in oil and still got enough energy to have a little pop on the backend.
It reacted well to hand changes and surface changes

Finish: Box

Ball review:

The Gauntlet Fury is the pearl version to compliment the original Gauntlet.
This ball gets down lane alot cleaner than the Scandal Pearl and retains good energy towards the end of oil patterns.

My recommendation: A great ball for speed dominant players and players with less hand.

Surface finish: box
Layout: 60 x 5″ x 25
PAP: 4 3/4 over and 1/2 up

Ball review:

Lit Pearl is very clean and quick response, but without being unpredictable. It makes it’s move very sharply, but then gets in to a roll which allows for control and great pin carry.
With Lit Pearl being as clean as it is it allows me to use it on really burned patterns without rolling out.

Ball review:

The Black Widow Urethane is the first ball I try on all (longer) short and medium patterns. It reads the lane early as urethane, but the core makes the ball continue to hook. The urethane cover makes the ball motion predictable and gives me confidence, especially on fresh, but it still goes great through the pins. The Black Widow Urethane gives me urethane predictability on longer patterns than Black and Purple Urethane and the core also makes me able to open the lane more than with the other urethane balls. I have bowled a full block of six games with this ball, I just kept chasing left and went around the ball a little bit more, and I could hook the lane with it.

The Black Widow Urethane combines the best of two worlds

Ball review:

This hooks alot for a urethane ball!
This is the first urethane ball i have tried with a asymmetric core, with the weaker widow core this ball doesn’t just check up as i thought it with would. for me it hooks enough so i can use it on pattern around 39-40 feet.
I would use this ball on more flat patterns in that 39-40 range where my reactiv balls forces me to deep on the fresh

Ebonite Verdict Pearl

Finish: light 2000
Layout: 55*5*35
PAP: 4 1/2 out 3/4 up
Speed: 28 kmh
Revrate: 480 RPM
RG: 2.48
Diff: 0.055

Ball review:

For me is the Verdict pearl cleaner though the front part of the lane but still reads the midlane very well. i drilled the pearl one pin up instead of the solid which i drilled pin down, and that makes it pop more downlane then the solid, but the pearl have a really nice round motion on the backend which i really like to see from my balls.

I will use the pearl when the solid starts burning up and the heads are to dry.

Ebonite Verdict Pearl

Ball review:

After the success of the new Justice Core in the Verdict, I was looking forward to testing the new Pearl version. I also went with a pin-up layout with a balance hole and was very surprised as to how smooth and controllable the ball reacted.

The Verdict Pearl offers a similar ball motion to the Affinity, but on higher volume / longer oil patterns and acts as a perfect partner in crime.

My verdict – Get your Justice against the pins and get one of these!

Finish: Box

Ball review:

My Gauntlet Fury goes longer than my Black Widow Gold and it jumps off the spot more than the Black Widow Gold. Despite the similarities in asymmetrical bowling balls with pearl cover and 2.50 RG, I find them very different. Black Widow Gold is more controllable, and Gauntlet Fury turns the corner. Gauntlet Fury is sometimes a little bit hard for me to control because it goes so long and hooks so much. I believe this is a ball that will be clean through the fronts at places with more friction and a good option to open the lane with around other bowlers that beat up the pattern
