Ball review:

The Black Widow Gold is really clean through the heads, and let’s me stay closer to the friction or in the friction. It have a really predictable ball reaction and going to be a good compliment to my arsenal after a few games, or from the start on house shots.

Ball review:

The new Black Widow Gold features the already proven Gas Mask Core. The Pearl coverstock combined with the 0.016 asym diff core reads quicker then most of the rest of my Pearl Balls but still gives me more length then most of my solid pieces. So this ball definietly fills a hole in my arsenal. So far I was able to use this ball either on fresher medium patterns or after the fist transition. It seems like it does not suit my game well more towards the end of the block as the ball tries to read a little to early most of the times. In general this Ball will fit good into the arsenals of matched or slighty speed dominat players.

Ball review:

This ball has grown on me a little bit. This ball is not a typical shiny ball, as its very smooth. With this ball i can stay closer to the friction, where my comfort zone it. Its ideal after a few games.

Ball review:

The new Black Widow Gold not only gives me a good compliment to my Dark Legend Solid. The Gold is much cleaner and longer, but keeps the same rolly motion as the Dark Legend Solid. This means I can go straight on higher friction, since the cover allows it to skid through the friction and the slower response time allows it to be smooth on the backend and not jump uncontrollable.
I look forward to seeing this gold ball go through the pins many times this fall!

Ball review:

The Gold Widow is what this ball should be called!

For me the gold color is really early, i used VAL layout on this ball becurse i have had alot of succes with it on alot of diffrent balls and it also worked on this one.

I can use this ball when the fresh is to early for the strong dull balls, then this ball is just a little cleaner and for a shiny ball i think its really controllable.
i think its gonna be really good on the houseshot around i denmark.

Ball review:

The new Diesel from Hammer is a new symmetric option in the Hammer-line. Diesel is early and has a great round and smooth ball motion. It hooks less than the Gauntlet, but more than the Rebels. This gives me a good all-round ball for medium and heavier patterns.
I have been able to use it going straight and hooking it. It allows me to blend out the fresh and even the hook spots on broken down patterns, which makes it very usable.

Ball review:

This is incredable strong for a midproformce ball. i really like the motion on this ball,for me this is a ball i’m gonna use when the patterns is a little shorter or when i have to throw it to the right like alot.

If you would like a strong ball but wont pay for a highproformence ball then this should be your choice

Ball review:

This ball is long and sharp. It clears the front very easy and has the kick in the back that I have come to expect from the Widow series.

This ball I will use on patterns that have had a lot of break down, so that I can move left and let the ball do the work down lane, with out loosing hitting power through the pins.

Ball review:

Phobia fits me perfectly! The ball is very clean and goes through the first part of the lane very easy. The best thing with this ball is that I can use phobia on many different patterns! Long, medium or short oil pattern doesn’t matter, Phobia is so easy to control on all different patterns!
I can play with phobia on both fresh and burn! The first league I played with this ball, was on 43 fot. It was a rather difficult pattern and with pretty low results and I did 978/4, this is my absolutely favorite ball!

Ball review:

The Gauntlet is a super strong asymmetrical Piece in the high Performance line of the Hammer Portfolio. With its numbers RG: 2.50 / Diff: 0.050 / int Diff.: 0.012 combined with the surface of 2000 this balls allows me to Play quite straight and with a fairly high Speed for my game on fresh Sport Patterns. It always reads the heavy part of the pattern and therefore allows me to create some miss room to the right, right from the start. I often use this ball for the first or the first couple of games to also create a hook spot on harder Patterns. This ball is definitely a must have for more Speed dominant Players as it will allow them to get a lot of shape out of that ball even with their higher Speeds.

Definitely a ball to go to if you are looking for a strong Piece in your bag.
