Hammer Gauntlet

The Hammer Gauntlet bowling ball takes the hybrid version of the proven Semtex CFI coverstock and pairs it with the all new Gauntlet asymmetric core. This ball was designed for heavy oil conditions and was made to be aggressive at the mid-lane as well as the backend. When compared to the Hammer Scandal bowling ball the Gauntlet will change down the lane faster and more aggressively. This bowling ball is Carbon Fiber Infused! Carbon fiber is one of the toughest materials on earth. Hammer decided to add this material to the inner core of this ball for added strength and durability allowing them to offer an incredible 3 year warranty.

Question:

Which is better polished or 3000 grit?

2/8/2017 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer:

Hi Corky! It may depend on what you want the ball to do. Out of the box this ball is 2000 grit so going up to 3000 grit would give the ball a little more length but still help it to maintain most of the over hook. If you go to a polished finish it will give the ball even more length and this could make the ball work more on medium-heavy oil because it is breaking so much later.
