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

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 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:

I’ve tried Rebel Yell on different medium patterns at five different bowling centers. I tested it with its shiny out of box surface at first, but it went too long and moved too many boards sideways for me, which I did not like. Therefore I have used surface, 2000, but also worn 1000 sometimes.

With more surface, Rebel Yell allows me to move a little deeper and open up the lane on fresh or some transition, with a smooth and controllable motion. The ball makes me able to hit the pocket and gives me hold when I miss in. With pearl cover, low RG, and surface it becomes a nice ball that fits just in between. It goes longer than my Rebel Solid, but hooks sooner and smoother than my other pearl balls. Also, knowing I can reduce the amount of surface if I’m at a center with more friction, makes the ball more versatile and a safe card to put in the bag when travelling to a tournament.

Ball review:

The rebel yell is the first rebel I’ve ever tried.
For me it’s reads a lot for a weaker ball but it’s not making that crazy
Backend motion as other weak balls are doing witch is a very good thing, it’s making a very controllable
Reaction.
I can use this ball on a variety of patterns and with different angles and hand positions

Ball review:

The Vibe is back!
The new Blue Vibe has the same motion as I remember foundly from the old Vibes, but a little stronger. I really like this one on most medium patterns – especially if there is some friction. Clean and smooth without being. Definitely a lot of value for money!

Ball review:

This ball is not a snappy off the back part of the lane as I thought it would be for me, I drilled it with a 5inch pin from my pap and it is surprisingly smooth. I would tend to use this ball on the lower volume patterns on lanes that have higher friction

Ball review:

Review by Løvvang Pro Shop staff player and Danish Youth National Team member Patrik Sørensen.

I like this ball’s down lane motion. It is smooth and clean through the front and mid lane. I can trust its reaction once it hits friction. It is strong on the backend but not in a violent matter. It is very versatile and I like it as a go to ball late in a block. With more surface it would probably also handle the fresh well as it is smooth in nature.

Ball review:

The Scandal is one big hooking ball. Probably the biggest hooking ball in the entire EBI family right now, and that is saying a lot. You’ll need oil and/or a long pattern with the box finish.

Ball review:

Personally if I was to be completely honest I didn’t have high expectations for this ball before I drilled it. I was very happily surprised and proven wrong after I put some holes in it and threw it, turns out this is going to be my monster ball in my bag. I feel that there is no amount of oil that this ball can not hook through, I have tested it on 41,43,45ft patterns and on all of them I was easily 5 boards left of everything in my bag except my Delirium Shock to which it matched the hook potential with less surface. How it drives pins off the deck too is crazy, I have to say I am over the moon that I decided to drill this ball with a longer pin distance than I originally planned because it already hooks so much. I think this could be one of the best overall balls that Hammer have produced for a couple of years.
