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 Phobia: Bowling Ball Review
The Hammer Phobia gets down the lane with a longer skid through the heads with a shorter transition in the mid-lane, the phobia has a more angular motion and a more controlled reaction, this do to the symmetric core. has a nice motion and good compliment to the Hammer Dark Legend. The Phobia would be best used on medium heavy oil patterns or as a second game ball after the shot opens up. You will need drier back-ends for peak performance of this bowling ball.

Description: The powerful Semtex Pearl coverstock provides a powerful skid/snap reaction on medium to heavy oil conditions. Polished to a 500/1000 Abralon w/Powerhouse Factory Finish Polish finish, the Phobia skids easily through the heads for a devastating and fearsome backend. Combined with the new Phobia core which conjures the power and performance of the Gas Mask Asymmetric in a new Symmetric option, joins a medium RG and high differential rating to give this ball length with a volatile reaction.

The New
Hammer First Blood The Bowling Ball Layout we used for the Hammer First Blood was pin under our ring finger with the mass in the strong position… The ball gave us a longer slide with a smoother transition and more even and controlled backend reaction… In addtion, we did have to adjust the coverstock to a 2000 grit for a more consistant reaction… This is a ball for controlling the front part of the lane after it breaks down and your early roller dies out and stops reacting… In addition, it will need dry boards to react…

Description: Ready to suck the life out of your bowling pins? This ball will leave no survivors. The Hammer First Blood introduces the new First Blood core and will give you the clean skid/flip reaction you are looking for. The NBT (Next Big Thing) coverstock will allow for the longest and sharpest backend reaction in Hammer’s history. This ball cuts through the oil and will finish strong with a powerful cutting hook
