Hammer Arson High Flare Solid

Hammer's Arson High Flare series of bowling balls offer strength and predictability. The Arson High Flare Solid is strong at the mid-lane and maintains consistency through the backend motion. The 3000 Abralon finish makes this ball a good match on medium oil patterns. 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.

Arson High Flare Solid

I used a 60 x 5 1/2 x 40 layout and this ball rolls great. It's everything that I love in a ball; solid with a symmetrical core :). It gives me a very a very strong mid lane reaction but is able to maintain a strong and continuous back-end motion. I think this ball will be able to be used on many different patterns.

Benchmark - Versatile Ball

BALL LAYOUT: 90 x 4 ¾ x 60

The new Arson High Flare SOLID features the same revised version (Higher Diff) of the Arson core, but with a solid coverstock from the original Arson classic. The AHF Solid is the perfect complement for the medium to medium- heavier lane patterns. The 3000 surface on this cover still gets through the front part of the lane with ease and provides a very controllable motion in the midlanes along a strong backend motion to the pocket.

For me, this is my new benchmark ball that will tell me which direction I need to go when bowling in league & tournaments. The AHF Solid provides me a strong rolling ball that does not quit, but has a very controllable motion off the spot. I can keep chasing the oil inside and this ball still comes back when playing deep inside the lane and allows me to open up the lane a little bit more.

With the new standard 3 year warrantee that Hammer provides for this ball, that is a great added value for your money! I think this ball fits perfectly in the Hammer line up and will be a great addition to your current arsenal. Very versatile ball… You will be impressed!

An aggressive/strong symmetric release by Hammer

Here is my take on the new Arson High Flare by Hammer. The core is the same as the original Arson High Flare. It is manufactured with the carbon fiber process and has the 3 year warranty. It has the max-hook solid cover and is colored in blue and yellow swirl. Box surface for this ball is a 500/3000 Abralon finish.
To help you understand my take on the ball, my "vital statistics" are that my PAP is 5 ½ over and 1/8 up with a rev rate of 405. Additionally, I have thrown this ball on USBC White pattern as well as house shots. I have thrown the ball at box surface and at 4000 Abralon and polished with Ebonite Factory Finish polish. I drilled the High Flare Solid with a 75 X 5 ½ X 55 layout.
The High Flare Solid is a very strong, symmetric release. Compared to the original High Flare which was a pearl, the Solid picks up much earlier and is smoother. Overall, the High Flare solid does cover more boards than the original High Flare. I preferred the polished surface best because the core/cover combination is very strong and on the patterns on which I have tried this ball, the polished surface gives me more hold. If I were bowling on a higher volume pattern, I would like the factory surface. That being said, with sufficient head oil and/or pattern length, this ball could easily be a benchmark ball. The High Flare Solid is not angular and as such, would be a great ball on fresh sport patterns as this ball will blend out any over/under reactions. Once the pattern breaks down, depending on where the lanes are playing and desired ball motion, a Hammer Widow Limited or a Hammer Viral (Solid or original) would definitely be a preferred option. Like with all balls with core manufactured with the carbon fiber process, the hitting power of this ball is excellent.
As previous noted, this ball is best suited for heavy volume patterns. From what I have seen, I think this ball can be used on a wide variety of pattern distances but the key to this ball is to have sufficient oil in the

Question: I curently have a Nail 14 lb, good on mid to dry lanes. My avg speed is 11.5 since I am a senior. I am looking at the Arson to add to my equipment. I need a ball that does not hurt my arm trying to throw to hard and is a good mid lane breaker in mid to hvy oil. Please advise. Thank you

Have an answer to this question?

Answer: Hello Chuck! Since the Nail is meant to be used for Medium-Dry lanes and it is working well for you in these conditions, then it seems that the Arson High Flare Solid would work for you on Medium-Oily lanes because that is what it is recommended for. It would be a pretty aggressive ball, not least because it does start hooking in the mid-lane. If you have anymore questions, please feel free to give us a call.
