Bowling Ball Reviews: Hammer Gauntlet

Hammer Gauntlet, Bowling Ball Reviews, Hammer Bowling Ball Reviews

The Hammer Gauntlet gave us a longer skid through the heads with a shorter transition in the mid-lane, the Gauntlet has a more arcing/angular motion and revs up in the back-end, we found the Gauntlet to be a smoother type ball motion and had very good continuation. We felt the Gauntlet would be best used as a first game ball on medium to heavier and longer lane patterns. A good bowling ball for playing a medium line on medium oil or direct line on heavy oil patterns. We put this in the controlled motion type bowling ball motion. You will need some oil but don’t have to be flooded for peak performance of this bowling ball. A strong ball from Hammer.

Description: Returning is the extremely strong Semtex CFI coverstock from the Scandal, only this time we’ve used a hybrid version. This is the strongest cover in Hammer’s history. Heavy oil is no match.However, this time we didn’t try to tame the reaction with a symmetric core. The new Gauntlet Asymmetric core was designed to maximize hook and continuation on heavy oil. The Gauntlet will have more overall hook and more angularity than the Scandal.

Bowling Ball Reviews: Hammer Rebel Solid

Hammer Rebel Solid, Bowling Ball Reviews, Hammer Bowling Ball Reviews

The Hammer Rebel Solid gets down the lane with a longer skid through the heads with a shorter transition in the mid-lane, the Hammer Rebel Solid has a little hook and set type ball motion even though it was angular, the rebel solid was smoother then the original rebel this do to the solid cover-stock rather than pearl and a good compliment. The Rebel Solid would be best used on heavier medium to longer lane patterns and good for blending out the wet/dry and offering control in the backends and it a a good upper mid price point bowling ball. You will need drier back-ends for peak performance of this bowling ball.

Description: The new Rebel Core uses technology designed to create extra revs for bowlers, increasing ball reaction. The low RH and medium-high differential allows the ball to read the midlane and pick up a strong roll. The NBT Solid overstock finished to a 500/2000 Abralon Matte surface bites hard and delivers strong overall hook on Medium to Heavy Oil.

Hammer Scandal Pearl: Bowling Ball Review

Review of the DV8 Thug Bowling Ball

The DV8 Thug gave us a longer skid through the heads with a shorter transition in the mid-lane. In addition, to a longer and smoother back-end motion… This ball had more of an L shape ball motion and also had some fade back type entry angle to the pocket. The DV8 Thug did have good pin carry and was very controllable and it was like using a smoother ball that got down the lane and had a set up reaction to it. It seem to work good on medium to heavier oil volumes… We used 55 x 5 x 35 dual angle drilling layout, and the out of box surface finish, and bowled on a 39ft house pattern in testing this ball…

The Thug features the new Class 13F Hybrid Reactive coverstock and the new Medium RG Thug Asymmetric core. The Thug gives bowlers easy length and lots of punch on the backend. This skid/flip reaction will increase pin carry and allow you to play inside angles with ease.The Thug has one of the best looking color combinations ever seen in a bowling ball. The Black/Orange/Silver Pearl – Hybrid really stands out when rolling down the lane and allows bowlers to easily see the rotation on the ball. This makes adjustments easier and will allow for higher scores.

Here’s what DV8 has to say about the ball:

Featuring the new Class 13F Hybrid Reactive coverstock wrapped around the Thug core, the Thug skids easily through the front and mid-lane flipping on the backend for the most breakpoint potential of any DV8 ever on medium to oily lane conditions.

Features; RG 2.505-2.557 Finish Polished Lane Condition Heavy Coverstock Hybrid Reactive Ball Quality First Quality Factory Finish 500 Siaair/Royal Compound Breakpoint Shape Skid/Flip Coverstock Name Class 13F Hybrid Reactive Core Name Thug Medium RG Asymmetric Differential 0.052 Flare Potential High Mass Bias Diff 0.015 Core Type Asymmetric Release Date 10/29/2014
