This is very very smooth and strong. It gives me many options, basically no matter what type of oil pattern I’m bowling on I can use this.

So if you need a new benchmark ball in your bag, this is absolutely the best one !

Ball review:

I think this is a very good ball. It reads the lane nice and smooth in the first part of the lane and when it hits the friction it moves sideways in a hurry.
Even with it being a symmetrical core it lets me move left a lot and is still able to recover back and hit the pins hard.

Finish: 2000

Ball review:

The Scandal /S is a nice and smooth in-between-ball. It can be good for fresh when the lanes have a little bit of friction or I can just stay a little softer with it, but I can also use it later to move in. The ball allows me to decide the motion by adjusting speed and release and it gives me good reaction in return. The ball is hence quite versatile.

Finish: 1000
Layout: dual angle: 50*4 3/4*65 with xhole

Ball review:

The solid cover of the Diesel Torque makes me like it a lot more than the original Diesel. It is great for fresh medium patterns when the lanes do not offer much friction. The Diesel Torque will get into a roll, without me having to stay soft and slow with it. The cover makes it flare a lot in the oil and gives a controlled reaction when it exits the oil which makes me able to control the pocket on tough patterns. I rather stay a little straighter than hooking the lane with the Diesel Torque.

Ball review:

The Black Widow Black/Gold is the latest release in the trusted Black Widow Series. This ball uses Hammer’s famed Gas Mask asymmetrical core and it is paired up with the polished Hybrid coverstock. It Features a RG of 2.50″ and a Differential of 0.058″. The Black Widow Black/Gold was alot earlier for me compared to the Black Widow Gold and due to its better midlane read this Ball gave me alot more room for error compared to the Gold one. It’s a great Addition to my Arsenal and I can use it one slightly transitioned medium to longer Sport Patterns.

 Finish: 3000
Layout: No x hole
PAP: 6 right & 3/8 up
Speed: 25 kmh
Revrate: 325 RPM
RG: 2.50

Ball review:

I was so happy when I got this ball! The Black Widow series is one of my favorites! Black Widow Black/Gold is very clean through the first part of the lane and very strong further down the lane. It’s a strong ball that I use on medium oil patterns. This is one if the balls that I brought to the World Youth Championship in Detroit 2018.

Ball review:

This ball complements the other Scandal balls perfectly. It’s a very strong ball that I use on medium and heavy oil patterns.
This ball gives me the opportunity to have more midlane control and more backend reaction so I can create a bigger angle to the pocket.
This ball will be in my bag for many competitions in the future!

Finish: 500/2000
Layout: 45 / 4 1/2 / 70

Ball review:

The original Scandal was the first ball to use Hammer’s CFI coverstock. The Scandal/S uses the same aggressive cover technology from that ball. The Scandal/S Features an Hybrid Coverstrock and comes out of the box at a 500/2000 Abralon finish that gives it plenty of traction through the oil. Pairing its dull, aggressive cover with a low RG (2.48″) and high differential (0.054″) core design makes the Scandal/S an easy choice for heavy volumes of oil. With the Layout I choose this Ball is a great Piece to start with on medium to longer Sport Patterns when keeping smaller launch angles is required. It has a great midlane read and therefor creates plenty of miss room left to right.

 Finish: polish + 4000
Layout: dual angle: 55*5*60
PAP: 5 1/2 over * 1/2 up
Speed: 18 kmh
Revrate: 400 RPM

Ball review:

As with all Black Widow balls, this ball is great. Black Widow Black/Gold reacts a slight bit earlier than the previous Black Widow Gold. I loved the shape of the Gold version, but there was a tendency I rarely came to that ball in my bag since the lanes did not ask for such a late ball. The Black/Gold is a little earlier and comes earlier into play, which makes it a better option for my shiny and asymmetric option in the bag. Black Widow Black/Gold loves to hook the lane; it is a ball to use on an opened-up lane. I like to switch to Black Widow Black/Gold when the lanes break down and a dull asymmetric ball, like Paradox Black, becomes too early. I that situation I can just stay in the same spot and switch to Black Widow Gold/Black which gives me a slight bit more length.

RG: 2.48

Ball review:

This ball has a violent reaction when it hits the breakpoint. It goes very far down lane and when it hits the friction it goes left in a hurry. I would use this when i need to move left and bowl coast to coast. It truly just wants to keep going left.

It is the ball that covers most boards for me, so if you need something that lets you get around the corner, GET THIS !
