Harrison Ford's got nothing on this Fugitive
This ball is more than I thought it would be both on the lane and in the pocket. I'm very pleased with this ball. Being the first mid level pearl from the Brunswick plant, this Hammer ball will not disappoint. I love the shape I see through the first 40 feet of the lane and the breakpoint is amazing. Pins action is very strong and the 2.48 rg keeps the pins low and as we all know, lower pins mean they have a chance to hit more pins on the deck and carry AND that means higher scores!!!!
Compared to my Flawless it is very similar but the Fugitive seems to be stronger and way more predictable!
This ball will not disappoint!

Here is my take on the new Fugitive by Hammer. This is one of the 1st of 3 Hammer releases under the Brunswick family of equipment. The Fugitive features a symmetric core wrapped by the Juiced Pearl cover in Red/Silver Pearl. Box finish is 1000 Siaair with Crown Factory Compound
My Vitals are 403 rev rate with a PAP of 5 9/16 over and 1/8 up. I drilled my Fugitive with a 45 x 4 ½ x 30 layout. I have thrown it on THS, Kegel Abbey Road and Kegel Route 66. I have thrown it at box surface and at 1000 Abralon.
Even though the description for the ball reads skid/flip, I would more characterize the motion as skid/smooth. Thus, I feel the Fugitive is best suited for drier and shorter patterns. With drier and shorter patterns, the Fugitive wlll not over squirt through the front but should control the back end. Thus, if bowling on a shorter sport that is of medium to lighter volume, the Fugitive will be in play. I can also see the Fugitive in play as a possible transition ball when the fronts go but the backends are still crisp. I also think that bowlers with a medium to higher rev rate will see the most benefit from this ball. For medium to higher volume patterns and/or medium to longer patterns, consider the new Hammer Redemption Solid or Redemption Pearl.

The Hammer Fugitive Pearl uses the Juiced Pearl coverstock with a low RG high differential core giving you a strong skid flip response when the lanes are broken down and extreme angles are necessary.. The Fugitive Pearl also has the Carbon Fiber cover for strength and durability with a two year warranty.
