Great Ball for the money

Bought this today and it preformed better then expected. When I hit my mark it was spot on pocket . When I missed it had enough break at the back end and it carried through the pins not leaving bad or tough spares. This is a great ball

Hammer Down!!!!!!

Just got the ball a few weeks ago and my second time using it got my first 600 series of the season. Still learning the do's and don'ts with the ball, but early results are very good.

The Need For Speed...

Recently changed to two-handed bowling. That means more revs with a strong release. When first throwing my Raw, my ball speed was way down (10.2) and the ball seemed to hook a bit too much. But practicing with a smoother release, better steps, and a higher ball speed (14.9), she went down the floor and zeroed into that pocket knocking pins all over the place. My Raw just wanted to be let loose to show me what it could do.

This hammer raw hits different…

I have a medium to dry house shot and I am a 2 handed, 500 rev rate player. Start by saying I am a storm guy through and through, but this ball is a life saver for me. Our house shot definitely favors a straighter approach and this ball fits the bill perfectly. It holds inside in the oil and explodes at the pocket. Revs up really nice. Is one of the few balls that I have that is super snappy yet seems really controllable. I think this is just due to the fact that it doesn’t try to start up hill too fast. Definitely recommend trying one out

Great Christmas Gift

Got it for a Christmas present. Just after it arrived a day early, got a call to sub in another league. Took it in hoping to get it drilled for my regular league tomorrow, but Dave had it ready to go during warm up. It only took 3 throws to line up, I'm straight down the boards. Decided to start with it and it went all 3 games, 684 ain't bad for my 187 avg.

Hammer Comes Through Again

Raw Hammer Hybrid Orange / Black Is Definitely A Great New Addition To The Hammer Line Of Bowling Balls... The Orange / Black One Is Starting To Become One Of My Favorites.. Definitely The First Ball Out Of My Bag When Bowling On A Shorter Volume Or Shorter Length Oil Patterns...It Definitely Gets Down Lane Smooth And Really Saves The Energy And Really Drives Through The Pins! The Combination Of The Cover And Core On This Ball Really Helps Me Stay Further To The Right And Keep My Angles Tight To The Pocket When The Fronts Are Really Beginning To Hook Early! The Length Downlane And Strong But Controllable Back End Drive Through The Pins Is Definitely A Great Ball To Have In Your Tournament Arsenal And When Lanes Transition ! Make Sure You Visit Your Local Pro Shop Today And This Great Line Of Bowling Balls To Your Bag Today You Wont Regret It! I Sure Havent And Might Drill A Few More IN The Future!

Best 1-2 Punch with Raw Solid

My Hammer Raw Hybrid is drilled 55 x 4.5 x 30, identical to my solid and it compliments the Solid perfectly! The OOB finish allowed me to play the same line as the Raw Solid and although I switched to the hybrid sooner than I normally would have in league or tournament, the hybrid never lost energy and read the midlane perfectly with a decent amount of oil still present. This is definitely a great 1-2 punch combo with the Raw Solid! Not often I say must have, but you get versatility and performance from both!

Good Hook on recommended oils, Control is good if your consistent

Best Uses:

Low revs: Dry lanes, High revs: Medium lanes

Bottom Line:

Nice Ball

I've Been throwing this ball on medium and dry lanes for about a month now, my revs are around 300, For medium lanes i have to throw 15 mph to go for a more hook centered throw, but for faster throws with medium revs (Medium oil), I wouldn't go as much of a hook centered throw

Raw Power!

The Hammer Raw Hybrid is a ball that I found to be smooth and controllable from front to back. On a fresh house shot, this hybrid was still to clean. Hit the surface lightly with a 2000 pad and the ball read earlier and created better continuation through the pins.
The Raw Hybrid by Hammer can be found in the new, lower mid performance line up along with a solid and pearl versions.
Truly, a lot of ball for the price.
Nothing hits like a Hammer!!

Question:


what is the symbol for a symmetrical and asymmetrical ball

5/12/2021 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer:


There is not currently a symbol to distinguish which balls have a Symmetric versus Asymmetric weight block but Asymmetric weight blocks are usually only found in higher performance bowling balls and just a few upper mid performance balls. Mid performance balls will almost always have a symmetric weight block which is the case for the Hammer Raw series.

Question:


How do I get measured for drilling

5/29/2021 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer:


You would need to get the measurements at a local proshop. If you have a drill sheet from a previous ball you had drilled then you can use that drill sheet to fill out our drill sheet.

Question:


Which raw bowling ball is comparable to blue hustle

7/31/2021 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer:


There are a few Hustle bowling balls that have had the color blue so I could not be exactly sure which Hustle you are wanting to compare to but this is very comparable to the Hustle series. Both are mid performance for medium to lighter oil conditions. Both have similar polished finishes out of the box to give them good length and both have a similar strength of weight block so they should be pretty comparable.

Question:


How would you compare this to the storm electrify pearl

9/20/2021 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer:


The Raw hybrid and Electrify pearl are going to be very similar in overall hook. They also give you similar length with a strong backend hook in medium to light oil conditions. The cover on the Raw is hybrid which would normally read earlier than the pearl cover on the Electrify but the weight block on the Raw reacts a little later so this balances them back out to be very comparable.

Question:


What would be a good ball for someone trying to move up a bit from this ball. I’ve had this ball for a bit and it works great but now want something a little stronger. What would be some good suggestions?

10/16/2021 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer:


If you like the length that this ball gives you but want something stronger on the backend and something that may be able to handle a little more oil then you could go up to the Web Pearl or the new Widow Ghost.

Question:


What is the pin size on this ball?

1/27/2022 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer:


You may request a pin placement if you know which pin placement you need to get a specific drilling layout. If you are not sure what pin to request you may check with your driller before ordering to confirm what you need to request for.

Question:


Is this for someone bowling a straight ball

1/30/2022 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer:


This ball is designed to have hook potential for medium to lighter oil conditions so if you wanted a ball that goes straight you could get a less expensive ball that is more designed to go straight. You may search under the spare bowling ball options because they are best for throwing straight.

Question:


What ball can replace the hammer scandel

3/6/2022 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer:


The Scandal was a high performance ball that was duller to read earlier on the lanes and worked mostly in heavy oil. This ball is on the opposite side of the performance scale because it is a mid performance ball for lighter oil conditions and reads later on the lanes. You could use this ball as a backup to the Scandal for when the Scandal is too aggressive and you need something to transition to in medium to lighter oil conditions.

Question:


I am a straight down the lane stroker bowler, 13 ball speed & lower rev...is this a good ball choice for me?

4/18/2022 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer:


This ball is designed to go long on the lane and have a sharp backend hook on medium to lighter oil. So this would match your style and work well for you in these conditions.

Question:


How would you compare this to the roto grip hustle wine

4/27/2022 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer:


This would actually be a pretty close comparison. Both are mid performance bowling balls for medium to lighter oil and both give you good length with a decent backend hook. The Hammer has a hybrid cover which would typically read a little smoother but the Wines finish may even that out some so they are still very similar.
