Ball review:

Strong overall hook and I will use both Rip’d and Rip’d Solid on heavy oil patterns. Rip’d gives me more length through the front of the lane with much backend reaction.

Ball review:

Fierce Phobia is a smooth ball that works very well on fresh and first transition medium patterns. The ball gives me a smooth controlled curve and rolls straight through the pins. I can use different releases to tweak the motion, without the ball becoming too sensitive. The ball works best staying outside of the third arrow, which is perfect for fresh

Ball review

This is one of the best polished balls I have at the moment. It is very smooth and does not jump of the friction, but gives a nice controllable motion, that I really like.

When the lanes start to break down I will switch to Rhodman Pearl and let it roll of the friction and just see the ball keep on striking

Ball review:

Strong overall hook and I will use both Rip’d and Rip’d solid on heavy oil patterns. Rip’D Solid gives me incredible midlane traction with a continuous down lane motion.

Ball review:

This ball is strong and early, and it hooks, even with a lot of oil. The cover makes it read the lane despite a lot of oil, and then it turns quickly. I need the outside to be broken down, or a little bit of over under to be able to use the ball. In that case, I can move inside of everyone else and bounce the ball off the dry outside – Really well! It smooths out the over under reaction, with the cover starting early in the oil and the core taking over when it hits the dry.

Ball review

This ball gives me the opportunity to have more midlane control so that I can create a bigger angle to the pocket. I can use this ball on all patters when it starts to dry up. Rhodman is very clean and stable ball for me and I can easily read the ball.

Ball review:

The Rip’d Pearl is a very versatile Pearl Ball.
I went with a pin down layout and placed the Mass Bias directly on my VAL.
After testing the ball on a couple of house patterns, I changed the surface to a 1000 Abralon for sport patterns.

The ball is very quick response downlane and reacts the dry spots well and maintans alot of energy downlane. I was able to manipulate my hand position and move inside with the ball without losing any energy downlane.

My recommendation – If you are looking for an an asymmetrical Ball with versatility, then look no further!

Ball review:

This ball can HOOK and has a great continues motion. This has been my go to ball on the fresh. I lets me have a lot of control, but still it hits the pins with tremendous force.

It is definitely one of my new favourite balls. I used this ball to help me win the Danish National trio championship 2018

Ball review

The Spheroid Core is back!
With the combination of core / coverstock, Hammer have produced a winner!

Very clean through the front part of the lanes, retains alot of energy and is suited to many styles…what else do you need in a bowling ball.

The Rhodman Pearl compliments the Fierce Phobia and Diesel perfectly when the lanes start to transition and the more grittier balls start to hook too early, the Rhodman Pearl will push past the dry spot with ease!

Ball review:

Rip’d works when the entire lane is a little bit broken down, and Rip’d Solid reacts too early. Despite being a shiny ball, the hybrid cover makes the ball useful earlier than I would expect. The Black Widow Gold has been a long time favorite, but sometimes, the lane is just not quite broken down enough for Black Widow Gold to get into play, and at that time the Rip’d is perfect. This is a ball to open the lane with, and it needs a little bit longer oil pattern.
