I love the new Flawless!
I love the new Flawless. Think of it as a stronger Vibe. Very clean cover but a little more pop on the back than a Vibe. It's a great ball for Medium to lighter volumes of oil.

Excellent Ball Reaction
This is my favorite pink ball since the original Ink Hammer. The Flawless has a very predictive ball motion. I find it very smooth through the heads and midlane, with lots of continuation in the back end.

EVERY SHOT LOOKS FLAWLESS
The Flawless to me when I opened it was blah. It looks like a pretty ball and to me that isn't tough which is what the Hammer brand is known for. After watching a few videos and reading up on it, I decided to put the pin under the ring because its symmetrical and shiny which for me usually means I see some skid. That is something I did not need in the bag right now because I like to see the ball controlled and more rolly than anything - Predictable.
I drilled it and threw the first couple test balls and my jaw dropped. I could not believe what this pretty ball was doing on the lanes. It became real tough in my eyes right away. It was filthy. It was dirty. It was tough. It was FLAWLESS!
This ball fits right into the Hammer Brand. Not only because its tough and rolls so nice, but because it hits like a tank. It has a controllable, blendable, smooooooth reaction that doesn't quit. It's so good, it makes your bad shots look FLAWLESS!
Do yourself a favor and get this ball. You will be surprised and amazed and most of all, glad you have this ball on your side! Video will be up soon.

Here is my take on the new Hammer Flawless. The new Flawless features an inverted symmetrical light bulb core wrapped around the Juiced Pearl coverstock found also on the Rebel Yell. Like all Hammers, the Flawless features a 3 year warranty in its Carbon Fiber manufacturing process. The ball comes with a 1000 Abralon polished surface. The color is a vibrant Pink/White/Blue which will catch eyes around the center.
My "vitals" are a 405 rev rate with a PAP of 5 9/16 over and 1/8 up. I drilled a Flawless with a 50x5x40 layout which is the same layout used in my 1st Onyx Vibe. Where the numbers are comparable to a Onyx Vibe, I wanted a point of comparison. I am drilling my equipment currently without weight holes in conformity with the new rules that went into effect on August 1, 2018. I have used this ball at factory finish, 2000 Abralon surfaces. I have tried the new Flawless on THS, modified USBC White and Kegel Beaten Path.
Based on the comparison of the Onyx Vibe I found the Flawless to get through the fronts a little easier than the Onyx Vibe with a little more recovery/continuation. As an example, I bowled an event on Kegel Beaten path which is lighter volume 41 foot challenge pattern. I started with the Onyx Vibe and found little hold and poor corner carry as the ball seemed a little lazy off the spot. I stayed in about the same zone and switched to the Flawless and that opened up the lane with ease. I generated more hold as the ball was cleaner and the corner carry was improved. That is why I think on the medium to lighter volumes or on broken down patterns, the Flawless will be in play.
Because of the versatility/shape of the core, many shapes can be drilled into the ball and should suit a number of styles. I can see this ball in play on a number of different pattern distances depending on ball speed. I believe that the Flawless will excel on medium to lighter volume patterns generally.
