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.

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

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

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:

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.

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:

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.

RG: 2.50

Ball review:

I use this ball when I want to create a stable bowling ball motion. I think this ball is best on medium patterns and all different patterns when it’s starts to dry up. The ball is very clean and goes through the first part of the lane very easy.

Finish: Box
Layout: 60 x 4 3/4″ x 75
PAP: 4 3/4 over and 1/2 up
Speed: 17 mph
Revrate: 340 RPM
RG: 2.49

Ball review:

Fierce Phobia gives me the same controllable smoothness from the Phobia, but with a lot more friction in the coverstock. This means I can use it on a lot more oil. Fierce Phobia will do well on fresh medium patterns and if you choose weaker layout even on broken down patterns.

Finish: Box, 500 Abralon
Layout: 35 x 4 x 40

Ball review:

As soon as I received word that this ball was coming, I was very excited! I love the Purple and Black Urethane releases.

I went with the exact same layout in the BW Urethane as the Black and Purple Urethanes
(pin above the ring finger with a balance hole), the results are unbelievable!! Not only does the Urethane flare like a reactive ball, but it carries just like a normal reactive ball.

I can throw the Black Widow Urethane on any pattern, from all over the lane and have no problems with the ball carrying through the pocket.

My recommendation – The BEST Urethane ball on the Market! Go and buy one – or two!
