The Hammer Black Widow Spare bowling ball is the deadliest polyester ball around! It features Hammer's proven Gas Mask Core with a shiny polyester coverstock to give the bowler more hook and core motion in a polyester option. The Gas Mask core is used in 14-16# weights, but has a standard pancake weight-block in 12# and 13# weights. This hot looking ball is sure to catch the eyes of Hammerheads across the world!
Before this ball 7 out of 10 times I woul not convert 10 pins. Normally I would throw 15 lbs ball. Read all the specs and went with 13lbs. Now I'm conver 9 out of 10. Love it.
Love spare balls that give me the same visual roll as my striking equipment. This ball does just that since it has a black mask core. I don't have to alter my release to throw it straight since the plastic cover rolls evenly throughout the lane. This is a must for bowlers with high rev rate and slower speeds. So stop missing your spares with your strike ball trying to alter your release or throw harder ... just add this Black Widow Spare ball to your arsenal and watch your scores increase!!
This is a terrific spare ball very consitent and it looks amazing. It surprisingly has some hook to it when the lane dries out so watch out for that. Other than that I love throwing it every chance I get.

This ball will not have a hook to it for it is a spare ball that only bowls straight.12/26/2018 - By Bowling.Com Staff
Yes it will hook enough to chop multi pin spares or miss the ten on a regular house shot. Love the ball, just not ready for the movement.11/22/2019 - By Bulletbill

If you drill your hook balls fingertip grip, do you drill this one the same?3/23/2019 - By jgstudios
It says the core gas mask will give the ball more good and weight motion. But you have said in comments that this ball will roll straight. Which one is true?5/9/2019 - By MattM
Compared to other plastic balls, this would have more hook potential because it has a weight block and most other plastic balls have a pancake core. Compared to performance bowling balls, this will be much weaker and is still considered a spare ball because of how much weaker it is.5/10/2019 - By Bowling.Com Staff

If you have a high rev rate will you still be able to hit the 10 pin9/2/2019 - By JTC
You could still get this to work for 10 pins but because it has a weight block it could give you a little movement on the backend. The straightest spare ball would be one that did not have a weight block so if you wanted to get one that is the straightest option that may be better for 10 pins with a high rev rate.9/5/2019 - By Bowling.Com Staff
