Hammer Black Widow Viz-A-Ball

The Hammer Black Widow Viz-A-Ball is the first Viz-A-Ball to have a performance core! This plastic bowling ball contains the iconic Gas Mask core found in other Black Widow performance balls. By adding a performance core to this Viz-A-Ball it provides more hitting power and takes this ball to a higher level. This ball is great as a powerful spare ball or when up against really dry lanes.

Black widow viz-a-ball

I've had this ball for a few weeks now and I love this ball. I use it for a spare ball while the lane's have oil on it but when the lane's dry up I use it as my primary ball because it's little hook and hits hard at the end do to the gas mass core. Great job hammer for making this ball. 🙂👍🕷

Widow Viz-A-Ball

2 very quick thoughts on the new Hammer Widow Viz-A-Ball. First, it is an extremely cool looking plastic ball that will draw alot of attention. Second, if you are looking for performance, the Widow Viz-A-Ball under the right conditions and proper surface preparation, will give performance. I drilled one primarily for spares and as I always do for any spare ball, I knock the shine off with a Siaair pad. The layout I used on mine was 40x4x20. On leftover THS, was able to get right on top of the dry to the right and where the Widow Viz-A-Ball has the Gas Mask core, was able to get the ball to tip and go through the pins effectively.

Question:


It sounds like a great ball, but is it primarily used as a spare ball?

Answer:


Yes, this ball is designed to go straight so it would be used for spares or for bowlers who prefer to throw straighter.

Question:


Will this ball react the same as a plastic ball with a pancake core?

Have an answer to this question?

Answer:


This ball has a performance weight block inside of a plastic cover so the ball is going to have more hook potential than a standard spare ball if you were to spin this and get it on lighter to drier lanes but in most situations this ball will go pretty straight and work well for spares.

Question:


I'm staying wth Hammer . I throw from mid to pocket . I'm looking for a ball throw as I do and stay on the line to pick up the 10 pin

2/23/2022 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer:


On most oil conditions this would work very well for a spare ball and help get that 10 pin but in lighter and dry conditions this ball might have a little hook potential which you would have to adjust for to get the 10 pin.

Question:


Do to age and a couple of bad legs, my speed is around 10-11 mph. Bowl on a dry outside house shot. Iโ€™m not good at staying behind the ball. Played with my t zone plastic last week and hooked it good and hit the pocket, not good on carry. Will this have some punch?

3/5/2022 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer:


This ball will be a slight step up from the TZone you have because it has a weight block but it has basically the same type of cover that the Tzone has which is not designed to grip or give hook potential. So you would get a little better reaction on this and better carry because of the weight block but not a high amount of hook by any means. Also you would probably only be able to see any kind of movement in lighter oil conditions.
