To continue the success of the Hammer Web bowling balls Hammer has modified the Spheroid core by adding a flip block at the top of the core of the Hammer Dark Web bowling ball. This modification raises the RG while leaving the differential the same resulting in increased overall motion. This core change paired with an aggressive cover and finish results in a symmetric upper-mid performance bowling ball that will make Hammer bowlers happy.
This ball reminds me of a stronger version of the Web Tour. I noticed the Dark Web definitely picks up sooner and stronger in the mid lane than the rest of the balls in the Web line. I was super excited to see this!!!! If you are looking for a ball to read the mid lane sooner and still have energy left to go through the pins then this is the ball for you. So far I really like starting the night with this ball. I’m really able to get a good feel for the lanes and open the lanes up!
The Dark Web by Hammer with it's enhanced Spheriod core and added flip block, has to be the strongest Web series ball to date.
The Dark Web reads the mids early with a powerful motion, off the pattern. Don't worry, the Dark Web still has plenty of energy left for those ten white toothpicks called pins.
Real excited about this one. Get to your local Pro Shop and pick one up!
I injured myself and had to change the way I bowl, this ball is making this easier
This is the newest addition to the Web line. Nice to have a solid ball the is very strong downlane. Compared to the Web Pearl, this ball for me is a lot stronger in the midlane and still continues downlane like the Web Pearl. So Basically, a lot more roll with downlane continutation. The carry power of this ball is amazing and with the DOT technology allowing you to drill anywhere without drilling out the pin. House or Sport, this ball stays true to its roll and is amazing!
Here is my take on the new Hammer Dark Web. The Dark Web features a modified Spheroid symmetric core (with added flip block) wrapped by a dark blue/black Aggression Solid cover. Box surface is 1500 Siaair. The one I have drilled has a 50 x 5 x 35 layout. I have tested this ball at box surface on fresh and burnt THS. My vitals are a 405 rev rate with a PAP of 5 9/16 over and 1/8 up.
At box surface, the Hammer Dark Web does need volume in the pattern. That being said, for a ball with an aggressive surface, on the fresh, the Dark Web shows an earlier, smooth and controllable motion. The best comparison to the Dark Web would be a Track Stealth with a little more length and downlane motion. I will be changing the surface to 3000 or 4000 Siaair to make it more usable on our local house shot which is only 24 ml or other competitive patterns in that volume range. My suspicion is that with an appropriate surface adjustment, the Dark Web may well be a great benchmark ball in the arsenal.
See your local pro shop for more on the Hammer Dark Web.
By far the strongest web series if thrown piece if thrown yet. Massive big hook. Very strong piece. Box at 500/1500 you are going to want some volume. Fast responding with lots of continuation. Does not lose hitting power even as they start to dry up a bit. Keeps the same motion. Very predictable. A must add to the bag.
It's early but the Hammer Dark Web immediately looks like a tournament ball to me. I'm a huge fan of the spheroid core from the Game Breaker line and Rhodman Pearl, and now it has been enhanced a bit and a flip block has been added to the top of the core body to help increase shape. I only have a few games on it against my GB4 Solid and it looks like a winner. It picks up in the mids as it should but has a strong controllable motion down lane. It is about 3-4 stronger than the GB4. At the end of my practice I moved about 6 & 3 left, slowed down my ball speed and that is where this ball looked really shined. It continued thru the pins very strong where other big solids might burn out. In the arsenal right now.
The new Dark Web is the perfect benchmark ball from Hammer. I love the Web series which I have thrown them all and the Dark Web is the most versatile out of all of Web balls. With the modified core, the core helps the ball get through the front part of the lane and blends out the over/under of various house & tournament patterns. The original Webs for me were a bit too early for my liking and when I brought the surface up a little bit, it was too much down the lane for me. The new Dark Web is the perfect ball for most medium/heavier medium lane patterns and is the 1st ball out of my bag to see what I need go from there! You will love this new addition to the Hammer brand.
This ball is very clean down lane and just hits like a hammer. If you like the Web Tour, you will very happy with this one. It is a great bench mark ball for league and for any tournament play.
What is the difference between the dark web and the web?
The Dark Web will have a Solid coverstock finished at 1500 grit out of the box which will read earlier than the Hybrid cover finished at 2000 grit on the original Web. Also, the weight block is modified on the Dark Web and this modification raises the RG while leaving the differential the same resulting in increased overall motion
