Hammer Diesel Torque

The Hammer Diesel is back and with more torque! The Hammer Diesel Torque bowling ball has the same popular Diesel core as the original but this time it is wrapped in Hammer's Juiced Solid coverstock. This core and cover combo offer a strong mid-lane reaction with continuous backend on medium to heavy oil conditions. This bowling ball is Carbon Fiber Infused! Carbon fiber is one of the toughest materials on earth.

Diesel Torque

Here is my take on the new Diesel Torque by Hammer. The Diesel Torque comes with the same symmetrical core as the original Diesel with a stronger Juiced Solid coverstock. This release features an industry leading 3 year warranty in its Carbon Fiber manufacturing process. The ball comes with a 2000 Abralon polished surface.
My "vitals" are a 405 rev rate with a PAP of 5 9/16 over and 1/8 up. I drilled the ball with a 0 x 5 ½ x 60 layout. I am drilling my equipment currently without weight holes in conformity with the new rules that go into effect on August 1, 2018. I have used this ball at factory finish on THS, USBC White and Shark Sport.
Compared to the original Diesel, as would be expected with a stronger cover, the ball does grab sooner. I would characterize the ball motion as a very heavy arc. I was able to throw the new Diesel to the dry on the THS without having it overreact on the normal over/under. On longer/flatter patterns, even the longer Shark, I was able to make the ball work as long as I kept my angles closed. Again, the motion of the ball is very "rolly" and is in play when there is a wet/dry or medium fresh patterns where control of the lane is required .
I believe with the stronger cover, this ball requires more oil in the front in order to be effective. Thus, I see this ball in play with medium/heavy volumes and medium to shorter distance patterns. It will also be effective when lanes are wet/dry from side to side as is often found on a THS.
See your local proshop for more information about the Diesel Torque!

GET TORQUED!

Wow! The Diesel is back again and this time it's updated from the NBT Hybrid cover to the Juiced Solid cover with the same trusted Diesel core. This ball is about 5 boards stronger than the original Diesel but with the same shape and allows me to move in and still have the strong motion through the pins!

A Mid-Lane Monster

If you need a strong mid-lane reaction with great backend predictability, you need a Diesel Torque!!! This ball provides incredible traction in the middle part of the lane with a smooth continuous down-lane motion. This ball will be a great "starting out" ball for fresh lanes when you need strong predictability to get to the pocket.

Question:

How does this ball compare to the Hammer Rebel

4/13/2019 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer:

The Hammer Rebel is a pearl and the Diesel Torque is a solid. So the Diesel Torque will break sooner than the Rebel.

Question:

My speed is around 10-12 miles per. Do you think this ball would be go for me.

9/19/2019 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer:

If your rev rate matches your ball speed then this ball could work for you in medium to heavier oil. However, with your ball speed being slower, if you have an average or high rev rate on the ball this would be hard to use because this ball is going to read the midlane and start hooking earlier on the lanes and it may roll out too early with a slower ball speed. You may do better with a ball that has a pearl cover or a polished finish so the ball gets down the lane well before hooking.

Question:

When selecting the hammer diesel how come it changes my choice from no drilling just to no drilling protection?? Will this ball come not drilled unless customer request otherwise ?

10/18/2019 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer:

If you select the $39.95 drilling option then we will drill the ball for you and it automatically selects to have the drilling protection for free if we do the drilling. However, if you do not select the $39.95 drilling option then you can have the ball shipped with no holes and have it drilled locally. You can then decide if you want to have drilling protection for $7.95 which covers if you take the ball to someone else to have them drill it. Click the "?" beside the Drilling Protection to see more details of what this covers.
