The Hammer Black Widow bowling balls keep rolling out and taking over the lanes. The Hammer Black Widow Gold takes Hammer's most angular coverstock, the Semtex Pearl, and pairs it with their most angular core, the Gas Mask, to create a ball that goes long and then offers a ton of backend motion when facing medium to heavy oil. 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.
This is one of my absolute favorites right now! I love the length this ball gives me and a great backend motion. NOT skid/flip for me, more like a hockey puck motion. Great for straighter, lower rev players like me!!! Available Tuesday August 8th, just in time for league!
This is a motion I like to see on the lane. It is not skid/flip for me but, more of a hockey puck or boomerang motion and does it hit hard through the pins and keeps them low. I had this similar to my blue Vibe as far as motion and I feel is gonna be on every rack for league bowlers! Great ball motion and pure sexy!
This ball is a must have in your bag for when you need to open up the lane!!! It provides great length through the front part of the lane and amazing backend motion with continuation through the pins. I drilled mine with a 5" Pin to PAP above the fingers and the Mass bias 3 7/8" from my PAP. (Right Handed - 415ish rev rate) It allows me to move to the middle part of the lane and open up my angles when the stronger cover balls start to burn up. Great release from Hammer!!!
The BW Gold is smooth through the heads and mids but has a strong back end reaction. Very comparable to the BW limited but for me the Gold has a stronger motion on the back ends.
I have thrown the Black Widow Gold, Hammer's newest UMP bowling ball. Being a Black Widow fan, this one was a must. I have thrown it on a few THS, and a pattern. My rating is synonymous with the color, golden! I loved traditionally how smooth Widows in general was, but to see the extra backend motion that was put into this one, it will be very appealing to the masses. Please don't get stung and miss out on this Black Widow, it is golden and with more pop than ever. Available 8/8/17...
With my ball speed and rev rate being high we hit the surface with 2000 out the box. This was a great idea to say the least. Even with the numbers being just about exactly the same as the Widow Limited this ball is slightly less in motion. BUT!!! Packs a major punch through the pins. I am able to keep my angles in front of me which allows me to open the lane up quick. This ball is very driller friendly. It also can take surface change very well.
So I drilled this product with a 60x4.5x35 layout. With the oob finish it really worked well in fresh oil where there was good backend friction. As I started to burn up the front and got a little carry down it started to read a little early so I made a surface adjustment to a 4k with polish and wow. This thing is a beast. This is a must have ball if you're a widow fan, and Hell just in general. Keep Em coming EBI!
Hey Y'all..... Stefanie Johnson here..... I have to say this has trumped all of my other Widows and is now my favorite. I primarily have found to be using this ball when the transition seems to be taking place and I can open up my angles. This b all is suuuuuuper clean through the fronts and restores enough energy for me to make the corner. I typically play the lanes straighter but this allows me to be comfortable opening up the angles!
