Hammer has taken components from some of the best Hammer bowling balls and combined them into the Black Widow Pink Pearl Urethane. This ball takes the color of the Pink Pearl Black Widow and pairs it with the coverstock found on the popular Purple Pearl Urethane. Combining these factors with the highly successful Gas Mask core, this ball is sure to be a winner. Bowlers can expect the Black Widow Pink Pearl Urethane to produce a strong arc motion and hook more than the Purple Pearl Urethane on lanes with medium oil.
Please keep giving me more Gas Mask Core! The BW Pink Urethane is just as good as the Black Widow Urethane, if not better!!! A great ball for heavier and shorter patterns, reads the lane early and smooth and controllable in the backend with lots of driving power. Can’t wait to use this ball more on patterns see the complete results! Layout: 55 x 4 x 20
Stats: PAP 4 over ¾ up, 15 mph, 18 tilt, 275 revs. I drilled mine 45x.4.25x30. This ball is smooth and controllable like urethane should be. For me, this provides the most hook compared to the Double Cross and Purple Pearl. It is a great option for lower rev bowlers who find a need for urethane.
When You Think Of The Widow Lane You Cant Go Wrong... The Addition Of The Pink Hammer Urethane Adds A New Dimension To The Game... With The Shelf Appeal Of The Color Of Pink And Being Urethane A Great Combination For A Winner On The Lanes.. Compared To The Purple Urethane I Have At Least 5-10 More Boards Of Area Where I Can Swing The Ball Which Makes This Ball Very Versatile And Have More Area Of The Lane To Play! Really Saves Its Energy To Go Down Lane And Really Drives Through The Pocket And Carries All Ten Back... Also Have Been Using It To Shoot Straight At Spares... This Ball Is Definitely Great For Medium To Lower Volume Patterns And Short To Medium Patterns And Will Be Great For Tournament Or League Play..

Took this ball to the Open Championships and was a beast on the lanes. Read the fronts and had a controlled back end through the pins. Its a must have in your bag for tournaments or league.
I really like this ball. I was surprised by the motion. Ball starts up early and has a smooth continuous motion through the pins. Definitely a nice compliment to the other urethanes. When they start to quit downlane this will go through the pins strong. I love the predictable motion this ball gives you!!!
ball did exactly what i wanted it to do. shot a 232 out of the box
The Black Widow Pink Urethane is everything I was hoping for and more. This ball is a little earlier and a little stronger overall to the purple hammer for me, making a great 1-2 punch. I can start with this ball when the purple isn’t quite enough, then as they transition, I am able to get into the purple. For bonus, the pink looks great going down the lane and this ball gets through the pins great.
The Black Widow Pink Urethane is definitely a go to for those heavier conditions. It very early but also very smooth and controllable, which is exactly what you want to see on those heavier and longer patterns. If you thought the purple hammer was a magic ball then you really need to put this in your bag as soon as possible.
I used a 50 x 4 x 20, pin up, layout on this ball. I was surprised by how early and strong this ball is, in comparison to the Purple Pearl Hammer Urethane. For fans of urethane, I feel that this ball can be used on fresh or a higher volume of oil, instead of just shorter or lighter patterns. Stop by your local pro shop and see if this ball will work for you!
GET YOUR PEPTO BISMOL HERE! Here is my take on the new Hammer Pink Widow Urethane. I drilled it with a 45 x 4 3/4 x 20 layout and threw it at box surface which is 800 Siaair. I did later change the surface to 2000 Siaair for reasons explained below. I threw it on used, but not totally burnt THS.
The new Hammer Pink Widow Urethane definitely wants to go very early and be smooth on the back. Clearly, this would be the expected motion for this core/cover combination.That is why, however, I changed the surface to 2000 Siaair as with my lower ball speed coupled with a high friction lane surface and pattern (Kegel Neon), I needed a little extra help to make sure the ball down the lane from the right angle. Even at the 2000 Siaair surface, this Pink Widow Urethane requires a good amount of volume in the front and clean backends. On a higher volume pattern that requires an early revving ball that controls the lane, the Pink Widow Urethane is the ball. As with any Gas Mask core ball, within its parameters, the Pink Widow Urethane should be versatile for many different styles.
See your local pro shop for more information on the new Hammer Pink Widow Urethane.
Early read with smooth continuous backend. Perfect blend of core and cover if you need a little more hook from a urethane.
Im not the best bowler ever by any means got this last night ran 183, 230 with it its very forgiving but aggressive enough to get back to the head pin love this ball
This pink widow is super early and super smooth. I see this ball being used on alot of High volume patterns where you need to get the ball started and need it to smoothen out when the backends are fresh. definitely a must have in the bag if you are a tournament bowler or a lower rev rate bowler that wants to compete with the higher revs throwing urethane.
Stats: PAP 4 over ¾ up, 15 mph, 18 tilt, 275 revs. I drilled mine 45x4.25x30, which is my standard layout. I did leave the cover at box, but I may add a touch more surface. I really like how well this ball drives into the pocket compared to some other urethanes I have seen. This ball also out-hooks the Purple, so if you are looking for something a step up but still controllable on the backend this is your ball. It is designed for medium oil, and even with my lower rev rate I have no problem using it on those conditions. Unlike most urethanes, I was able to move left a little and swing it. If you are bowling on short patterns and sport conditions, this ball will definitely help you out.
The Black Widow Pink Pearl Urethane is the next best thing! If you love the Black Widow series and liked the Purple Pearl urethane you need this ball!! This ball comes with a sanded aggressive finish at 800, but tames down quite nicely after a few games. I noticed the angularity from this ball compared to my Purple Pearl Urethane which makes for a nice 1-2 punch. The hitting power is amazing scattering pins all over the place. You add the angularity with the pearl urethane finish, you got a winner winner Chicken Dinner!
Love the widow core with the great urethane cover. This ball is a monster in the middle of the lane with the great control down lane we have come to expect from Hammer urethane balls. A must have.
I drilled mine 60 x 4 x 35 for overall strength and roll. What I got was a strong (very strong) continuous roll with a back end unlike other urethanes. This ball is easily 5 and 3 left of my purple hammer but yet gives the forgiveness off the urethane cover. Purple Hammer on steroids!! If you love the “purp daddy”, you will love this new urethane.
I really like the Black Widow Pink Urethane as it gives me that extra pop that I was looking for. In addition to it's good looks, she has that early traction and smooth reaction in the backends. Definitely and must for your bag.
Hammer has added Gas Mask core to the Purple Hammer cover recipe and come up with a urethane ball with more flare & hook potential. It is a pearl urethane cover and then finished at 360/800 Siaair so it really digs in. For me it read very early on our California low oil volume conditions so I shined it up a bit with 2000/3000/4000. It was good before, now it's really good. This is based on my rev dominant style. Most people will like it straight out of box, but if not, surface changes are easily made.

We have drilling offered for an extra fee but if you do not select the drilling or if the drilling is not offered on the weight you select then the ball will come without holes and you may drill it at your local proshop.
looking for the drilling options for spider pink pearl spider
This has an asymmetric weight block from 14-16lbs and a symmetric weight block in 12-13lbs . Here are the Hammer drill sheets: https://hammerbowling.com/pages/drill-sheets
How would this ball work on the nationals shot, which is usually heavy oil on the outside of the 10 board? I like to play 7-9 board.
This ball is not designed to work in heavier oil conditions so it would skid through heavier oil. This ball works best in medium oil and it will have a medium hook with a controllable arcing hook.
Would this compliment the Uc3
These are actually going to be pretty comparable. They both are designed with a strong weight block but a much more tame urethane style coverstock. The covers are both a duller finish with the Widow having a slightly duller finish which will give it just a slightly earlier hook.
