Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Great ball for high rev bowlers

I'm a 2 finger bowler, no thumb. I have a hard time finding a ball that isnt goimg to hook too much for me on a typical house shot. I stick with urethane for consistency and not a huge hook. My old go to was the blue hammer urethane, the remake. The purple hammer urethane gave me exactly what I was looking for. A little more length with a nice back end finish. It carries 10 pins better than the blue hammer urethane. It is now my go to ball. This is the perfect ball for high rev, 2 finger, or 2 handed bowlers.

Question:

Why don't the ball specs use a consistent set of categories and terminology for every ball? It makes it very hard to compare balls.

10/25/2016 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer:

Every ball weight will have a different weight block in it, in turn they will all have different ratings, based on the weight blocks.
