Hammer offers flawless performance with the Hammer Flawless mid performance bowling ball. The combination of the Juiced Pearl coverstock and 40 Watt core result in good length and strong backend motion when gliding through medium oil conditions. This bowling ball is Carbon Fiber Infused! Carbon fiber is one of the toughest materials on earth. Hammer decided to add this material to the inner core of this ball for added strength and durability allowing them to offer an incredible 3 year warranty.
I absolutely love the colors of this ball. Not only just the colors but the ball itself is awesome! It has some great length to it with some crazy sharp back end at least for me. Definitely always will be a late game ball for me at every tournament. The sharpness for me really kicks out those ten pins.
I was looking to fill a gap in my arsenal for medium/dry conditions and when the lanes start to burn up. I drilled this ball pin up over ring with CG stacked, and this ball is super clean through the front and mids, and drives hard through the pins. How this ball is flawless for me is how consistent this ball performs, not shooting through the breakpoint and keeping the pins low. Plus this ball is pretty to watch going down the lane!
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.
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.
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.

I have a Hammer Arson and I love it. the weight is 12.8lbs. I am looking to go a pound lighter for elbow problems. Will this ball be a good comparison to my Arson?2/9/2019 - By Dona
The only thing that will be different will be the lane conditions. The Arson is for medium-heavy oil conditions and the Flawless is meant for medium oil conditions only.2/12/2019 - By Bowling.Com Staff

How does the Flawless compare to the Rebek Yell length-wise?3/19/2019 - By Ron
There is not much of a difference but the core in the Rebel Yell is stronger. The finish on the Flawless is a little stronger, but the Hammer Rebel Yell will go just a tad longer.3/20/2019 - By Bowling.Com Staff
Does a generic core cause the ball to react differently than the light bulb core4/21/2019 - By NewBowler
Isa this ball good for a low speed down and in player?9/20/2019 - By Don
Yes, this ball is ideal for a down and in player because it has a pearl cover and polished finish to give it good length. This is also a good match for someone with a slower ball speed so the ball does not react too early. This will be ideal in medium oil conditions.9/25/2019 - By Bowling.Com Staff
