I am amazed at how good this ball rolling on this and reacts. The carbon fiber infused cover combined with the gas mask core has made a Black Widow like no other.

Pink Is The New Black
I am a regional staff member for Columbia 300. I am here to review Hammer's newest bowling ball, the Black Widow Pink. The newest edition to the Black Widow series is beefed up with a Carbon Fiber Infused coverstock for the very first time, this Black Widow is a must for your arsenal. I have used it in a tournament and on a few THS patterns, and I really like what this bowling ball has to offer. It reminds me of the Black Widow Gold with a bit more pop down the lane. Putting the best coverstock Hammer has with the most famous gas mask core couldn't get better...until they made it pretty in pink!!! Get to your local pro shop on 4/9/19, and make this special bowling ball a part of your bowling bag.

Hammer Widow Pink- WOW!
Here is my take on the new Hammer Widow Pink which becomes available to the public on April 9, 2019. The Widow Pink features the ever popular Gas Mask Core found in all Widows and Taboos wrapped in a Pink Pearl Aggression Peal CFI cover- similar to what is found on the Statement Pearl and Rip'd Pearl. This ball simply stated, has great shelf appeal and will catch the eye going down the lane!
More importantly, the new Widow Pink has some serious backend motion. Mine is drilled with a 70 x 5 x 30 layout without a weight hole. I have tried the ball on THS several times. I have also compared it to a Widow B/G and Statement Peal. I currently have been throwing the ball with a 4000 Abralon finish.
The Widow Pink shows, in my opinion, earlier and stronger motion off the spot compared to a Widow B/G. The Widow Pink has more recovery than the Widow B/G and as such, when the shot calls for more left to right direction, the Widow Pink should be in your hand. Compared to a Statement Pearl, the shape of the motion is different even though they share the same coverstock. The Statement Pearl seems to show a little smoother/forward type of motion off the spot compared to a more sideways motion for the Widow Pink. Compared to a Statement Pearl, I had to move a couple boards left and look a little further right for the Widow Pink. Both are excellent pieces when you have medium volume to medium to longer distance patterns. The difference is the shape of the motion you are seeking and if you are looking for a ball to open up angles, the Widow Pink is the ball.
And like I said, the ball has AWESOME shelf appeal and will grab attention going down the lane.
