Hammer Black Widow Urethane Bowling Ball Features:
The Black Widow Urethane combines a solid urethane coverstock with what is arguably the most popular core design ever from Hammer. The high-flaring Gas Mask core is unchanged from the other Widow line releases, with an RG of 2.50″, a total differential of 0.058″, and an intermediate differential of 0.016″. The dull urethane cover on this ball is earlier and smoother than the React-a-Thane cover from the Burgundy Hammer from several years back, but the added flare will offer more motion at the breakpoint than the Performance Urethane cover that was used on the Blue Hammer. The sanded 500 Abralon box finish makes sure this ball creates traction early on the lane so it doesn’t skip past the breakpoint.
In the 1980’s, Hammer was known as “Faball Enterprises” and was the industry leader in urethane technology and performance. Over the past few years, we have gone back to our roots and brought back the Black and Purple Pearl Urethane. Hammer is excited to bring this same trusted urethane formula to the Black Widow line and wrap it around our most iconic core. This combination will give you more overall hook than traditional urethane while maintaining the predictability that a urethane coverstock provides.
