FYI about the Hammer Bowling Brand
The Hammer brand comes from the creation of a remarkable urethane ball in 1981 that hit like no other ball in bowling. With a specially designed claw hammer logo, the brand was born. Hammer bowling balls are often infused with carbon fiber and come backed by an impressive 3-year warranty.
Ebonite International is the umbrella brand under which Hammer bowling falls. The products are made in Hopkinsville, KY, and appeal to all skill levels of bowlers.
The Three Most Important Characteristics for Great Throws
- Cover Stock
- Hook Potential
The bowling ball weight that’s right for you should be the greatest weight that’s comfortable for you to bowl. Professional bowlers tend to max out at 16 lbs. or bowl with a 15 lb. ball, as do many adult bowlers. Women, younger bowlers, and older bowlers often choose a 14 lb. bowl. Two rules of thumb:
- Don’t try to bowl with a greater weight than is comfortable for you. You could injure yourself if the ball is too heavy.
- Add two pounds to the weight of the ball you typically choose at the bowling lanes. Custom drilled holes allow for a more secure hold and increased weight.
A bowling ball cover stock is responsible for how well the ball grips the lanes. The lanes you choose might range from dry to heavily oiled. Most pro games and tournaments use heavy oil, so the cover stock should be appropriate. Cover stocks come in three types: plastic polyurethane, urethane, and reactive resin. The grip and price increase respectively.
Plastic balls tend to be chosen by beginners, pros for securing the spare, and those who bowl at dry lanes. Intermediate bowlers graduate to urethane balls for greater hook potential, and reactive resin cover stocks work well for pro games and heavy oil conditions.
The hook potential that you need in your bowling ball depends on your hook style. The back end reaction is indicated by the flare potential rating with the reaction increasing in strength with the flare potential. This factor largely depends on the design and composition of the bowling ball’s core.
