Hammer Obsession Tour Solid
The Hammer Obsession Tour Solid is obsessed with performance This bowling ball uses the TourV2 Solid coverstock which is an updated version of the successful cover found on the Web Tour bowling balls. This cover is paired with the Obsession Tour core which has the same shape as the regular Obsession core minus the flip block. This core alteration results in less flare and less hook but with a more controllable reaction on medium to heavy oil conditions. The Obsession Tour offers a different reaction allowing bowlers to stand closer to the dry while also being a good match for higher rev bowlers. This bowling ball utilizes DOT! DOT allows you to drill anywhere on the ball and offers toughness to the ball.

Ball is an absolute must in your bag
Drilled my Hammer Obsession Tour with my benchmark layout 55 x 4.5 x 40. Ball is great on the fresh, has mid-lane but also very smooth and continuous on the backend. Able to get a few games out of it before I have to ball down to something weaker. I would highly recommend this ball for anyone looking for something on the fresh that needs that extra pop to get through the oil!

Hammer Obsession Tour
Here is my take on the new Hammer Obsession TOUR. The Hammer Obsession Tour has a low RG/low diff. asymmetrical core wrapped by a burgundy colored solid Tour V2 cover. Box finish is 1000 Siaair.
My “vitals” are a 405 rev rate with a PAP of 5 9/16 over and 1/8 up. I drilled the Obsession Tour with a 60 x 6 x 20 layout and have thrown it at box surface and 3000 Abralon. I have tried the Obsession Tour on various THS as well as a 40 foot 2.75:1 medium volume sport pattern.
Don’t let the Tour in the name fool you, the Obsession Tour flat out hooks a ton. The shape would be best described as strong yet smooth/continuous…they type of motion you would expect on a Tour ball. At 3000 Abralon, the Obsession Tour does show more length but even with the smoother surface, the Obsession Tour covers a lot of boards. Given the strength of the cover, you will be able to use this ball on the medium to higher volume patterns, depending on surface prep. This ball should especially be in play on medium to high volume SPORT patterns where control of the lane is key. In terms of comparison, the Obsession Tour reminds me a bit of the Track Kinetic Obsidian, but with an earlier motion and move overall hook.

I drilled my Hammer Obsession Tour 45x4 ½ x35 to match my game. This ball is unique and will be my benchmark ball, replacing my symmetrical balls for league when I start. My lower rev rate of 300 and speed at 16mph usually keeps me from using very many asymmetrical bowling balls. I can throw this ball all night long as it is smooth as silk in all phases of the ball motion.
