Ball review:

I was happy to see a urethane ball! I have only thrown The Black Hammer a couple of shots (because I don’t need to use urethane that often) so I don’t have that much to compare the Purple Urethane with. But I think I’m going to play with the Purple Hammer much more because this ball gave me early reaction and The purple urethane also gave me a very strong reaction.

Ball review:

Scandal Pearl really gives me a very unique ball. It is a strong, but clean and it is symmetrical. This means I get a ball I can use on longer patterns when they break down, but because Scandal Pearl is symmetrical it gives me a smoother reaction than the asymmetrical balls. This is especially good when the lanes start to get a little spotty and you need something predictable.

Despite being predictable Scandal Pearl is still very strong on the backend. And it has already proven to be a striking machine!

Ball review:

Wow this ball hooks a LOT and EARLY!!

This is soo strong and early that this will definitely be my go to ball on heavier oilpatterns. This is a symmetrical ball, so it will still have the smooth controlled backend motion.

If I should compare it to any other ball it would be the Bad Intentions. So if you are a speed dominated bowler that need a ball that helps you a lot.

Then this is the ball for you.

Ball review:

I loved the original Rebel and was looking forward to the release with the solid coverstock and it didn’t disappoint!

I selected a layout to get the Rebel Solid reading the lanes a little sooner than my Dark Legend Solid and what I noticed is how easy the ball seems to peel off the exit point without slowing down in the pindecks.

This is a very versatile release and can be seen as a go-to ball, or an all-round ball for many league bowlers and will be in my tournament bag for a long time to come!

Ball review:

This ball complements the original Scandal perfectly, it’s a very strong pearlized ball that I use on medium and heavy oil patterns.

This ball gives me the opportunity to have more midlane control so I can also create a bigger angle to the pocket.

Scandal Pearl is a ball that I have been missing in my bag but now this ball will be in my bag for many competitions in the future, for instance the European Cup!

Ball review:

I was so happy to see another Urethane added to the Hammer Lineup.

I have the Black Hammer and drilled the Purple Pearl very similar in order to get a good read from both balls. The Purple allows me to get inside a little more and open up the lanes not only on the traditional Short tournament patterns but also on longer Medium patterns.

This ball helped me get to the Semi Finals of a National Event on a very demanding 37ft pattern as I was able to control the pocket and keep the ball in play.

My recommendation – A terrific addition to the urethane line and is my benchmark ball for shorter / lighter volume patterns.

Ball review:

The Scandal Pearl is a must have for league bowlers. This is a great ball for medium length patterns and a variety of bowlers.

I have been able to through this ball alot on older lanes (where balls tend to read earlier) as it gets further downlane before it makes the turn towards the pocket.

Ball review:

The Purple Hammer gives a lot stronger reaction than my Black Hammer, but still in the early and smooth reaction a urethane ball has. I think lower rev players will like the Purple Hammer a lot more and higher rev players will get a urethane ball that they can open their angles with a lot easier.

Ball review:

Dark Legend is for me best on medium to oily patterns. It has a smooth continuous shape, that makes it easy to use. It needs oil in the front part of the lane, so I use it mostly on the fresh.

Ball review:

The new Scandal Pearl is the strongest, symmetrical pearl in the EBI-line, but at the same time it is remarkable clean.

It gets through friction really well, but with enough strength to still handle longer oil patterns. What also stands out to me is how well this ball got thorugh the pins. It really seemed like it was easier to make this ball strike!
