Must have for a 2 finger bowler

I'm a 2 finger bowler with high Revs. Ball speed is between 17 and 17.5. I have been using the storm supernatural for the first half of my bowling season and the ball just isn't very consistent and I've been having issues with it carrying. Last season I was using an old urethane ball, the colunmbia T/I beast. averaged 208. I switched to the super natural because the T/I Beast was only 14lbs and about 15 years old. So now I am back to the old stand by urethane. The Blue Hammer is a dream come true, just what I needed. It's smooth and hits the pins hard. Used it 2 weeks now, 684 and 722. The really nice thing about the ball is that your window for a miss is quite large. Miss to the outside and it comes back to the pocket, miss the inside and it holds it line. Can't wait to finish up the rest of the season with it. If you are a high rev 2 finger bowler, this is an absolute must have.

A hard hitting Urethane ball

This was my first Hammer bowling ball. I use Urethane bowling balls for my strike ball and I always have. I love the longevity of these balls and the fact that they require very little maintenance. Also the fact that they are very predictable and easy to adjust depending on the lane conditions. I love the smoothness of this ball and the clean backend reaction. I replaced it with my Storm Natural which was getting too light for me. Comparing the two, the Blue Hammer feels smoother rolling down the lane; the Natural hooks just a little bit more on the backend; the Blue Hammer gives you more pin carry. I would recommend this ball to anyone. I haven't yet tried it as a spare ball for the 10 pin (7 for lefties), but it easily picks up the other common spares, even on drier conditions. Another thing I love about Urethane bowling balls is that I can also use it as a spare ball. Definitely a great bowling ball and a good brand to support.

Thanks Hammer

Solid ball

The Hammer Blue Power Urethane ball performs well in dry lane conditions. At the current time I'm utilizing it to develop my ability to open up the lanes when they are dry. So, as I gain greater success with this endeavor -- 100% experimental -- I will update this review. It's my first Hammer, and I love the feel of the ball and its color. I am sure my remarks will be more positive as I move forward with it.

HAMMER IS HAMMERING, BUT WEAK

i HAVE TESTED MANY BALLS THROUGH THE YEARS FOR MANY DIFFERENT COMPANIES. I put balls through the gauntlet in every condition and different alleys possible. This particular hammer is a mediocre type ball, it has a good backend, if thrown at a low to medium speed it will hook slowly, but effectively. If you use to much speed it will split on you everytime. For the price this ball is pretty decent in many ways, Comfortable grip, easy roll, smooth to the touch, easy to handle and control. This ball is predictable, almost to the tee. This bal is probably one of Hammers better and weighted ball on the market. It is designed for the average bowler or beginner to help them raise their average and that it does ! Although not a top notch line ball, it does a lot of damage once your used to it. SUGGESTION: DO NOT USE ON HEAVY OIL WILL BOG DOWN AND DIE QUICKLY. Best used on Dry to light oily lanes and semi gloss alleys. This ball is in a class all its own. For the price it will work well for bowlers in the lower average class or beginner. Its all in getting use to it folks...

Great Ball for League Play

I've been using the same Blue Hammer since the mid-90's and recently started bowling again after a 15 year hiatus. Then I was bowling 2 leagues and several tournaments per year. I've had several weeks of league bowling on different lane conditions than 15 years ago, so there were adjustments to my technique that had to be factored in before I began to feel comfortable with it again. I would not hesitate to recommend the "old school" ball to anyone who is looking for a good solid scoring ball. I use it for both strike and spares and am pleased with the results. Barring any physical problems with this 55 year old body, I feel confident that I will be back up over 200 using the Blue Hammer. Don't think that because it's old technology that it's not relevant. Even pocket misses turn into strikes for me with this ball. Lot's of pin action on balls late into the pocket and big misses onto the Brooklyn side are strikes. Not sure what else we recreational/league bowlers could ask for......

Great Ball

When I decided to get back into bowling after a 16 year hiatus, other bowlers thought I'd stepped out of a time machine when I pulled out my mid-90's Blue Hammer. I quickly made a believer out of them shooting games from 180s into the 200s. My 20-something son was using it and in his 1st year is shooting in the 160s. He wanted his own ball, so after trying to get him to try something different, he convinced me to get him a Hammer. Boy was he right! He's a lefty 2 finger bowler and he feels comfortable with the way the Hammer tracks and finishes. You get close to your line, and the ball is forgiving enough to carry shots that I've seen other balls leave you in a bind, e.g., shallow pocket shots and heavy head pin shots. I'm impressed with the updated version as it seems to have a better back end reaction than my 20 year old ball and may have to get one for myself!
