Hammer is calling it what it is... a legend. The Black Widow Legend takes the proven history of the Black Widow line and turns it up a notch.

Insanely Forgiving

Wow my game has improved a TON since getting this ball. For a little context I usually shot from a 14 board. Had to move to a 9 board for this ball. This is my first new ball that was drilled for me. I have been working with hand-me-down balls before this. I had about 165-170 average before using this ball and now average between 180-190+ on most series. Furthermore I hit a 289 in league when my previous best was a 236. Highly recommend!!

Love this ball

This is my first custom ball, and I love it. I threw an average of 160 for my first 5 games with it, with one game of 220. Worlds better than anything I've thrown before.

Question:


Is there a difference between the Black Widow Lengend and The Black Widow 2.0?

7/2/2021 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer:


Yes, they have the same weight block but they have a different coverstock and finish out of the box so the Legend reads the lanes later with a sharper backend while the 2.0 reads earlier with a smoother arcing hook.

Question:


Will this ball be a good high performance ball for a begginer bowler? What other high performance balls should I look into purchasing?

7/11/2021 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer:


If you are a beginner bowler then you may prefer to start with something that is under the entry performance category or may be a mid performance ball that is more suited for medium to lighter oil conditions. This is typically what people start with and then you can get a more aggressive option later on if you find that you need something stronger at certain times of the night. If you are in a league you may need something stronger like this Widow Legend at the beginning of the night but you would still need a good medium to light oil ball later in the evening no matter how advanced you get.

Question:


Do you lose any reaction with this Ball if you get it af 14Pounds

7/17/2021 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer:


The 14lb RG is 2.50 and the RG Diff is 0.056 compared to the 15lb RG 2.50 and RG Diff 0.058 so there is only a slight difference in performance.

Question:


Does pin length effect ball reaction and if so how?

2/16/2022 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer:


The pin length can effect the drilling options you have and the drilling options can effect the ball reaction. You may want to talk to your driller about how you like to throw so he can recommend what pin to request that would give you the best drilling layout to match.

Question:


Can you polish this ball

3/16/2022 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer:


This ball comes out of the box with a polished finish but if you need to add more polish to get more length you may add polish to this.

Question:


Can you get holes drilled in this and then shipped to you or do you have to have the holes drilled after you get it

4/10/2022 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer:


We may offer a drilling option but you would need to have the measurements for us to do this drilling. If you do not want us to do the drilling or if you would prefer to have it drilled locally you may decline our drilling and the ball would come without holes.

Question:


Is this a good ball for a straight ball bowler

8/24/2022 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer:


This ball was designed to have a higher hook potential for medium to heavy oil conditions so if you want a ball that goes straight this would not be a very good option. You may look in the "Spare" ball category because those are the best straight bowling balls.
