Hammer created the Raw series of bowling balls to enhance an experienced bowler's arsenal and to offer beginners a performance option for their first bowling ball. The Hammer Raw Pearl Purple/Pink/Silver features the Raw Hammer core which is covered with the Juiced Pearl coverstock then finished with a 500 then 1000 then 2000 grit Siaair sanding pad and finally polished with Crown Factory Polish. This combination of core, cover and finish gives this ball a skid/flip reaction and is ideal for light to medium oil.
Love this ball. Great add to my arsenal. On fresh, I start with my Widow Ghost Pearl but as the lane breaks down the Raw is my go to. It get's through the front part of the lane while reading the backend very nicely. It stores it's enegy well and just unleashes on the pins. Bowled a 300 in my second series ever with this ball (house pattern).
This ball surprised me! For a low end ball, don’t underestimate when to pull this ball out the bag! The Raw Pearl reads the lane well through the fronts and provides the backend hits that sometimes lack in other low end pieces. This ball stays in the bag for all house shots and short patterns.
The New Raw Hammer series is at a lower price point but don't let the cheaper price fool you. These balls are amazing regardless of price. This pearl raw hammer is great for the later blocks as the pattern starts to break down in the fronts or even on typical house shots. Having this ball in my bag makes it very easy to make the switch when I need something to get through the spot. I find this is my go to ball when I need to switch out from my obsession tour or damn good verge

Where can I get holes drilled
We have a customized drilling option available for $39.95 if you know your measurements or you can get the ball drilled locally after you receive the ball. You may check your local bowling center to see if they have a proshop or know of a person that does drilling in your area.
Wife throws an 11# with a slight back up twist, (not intentional). Will this rend to enhance that. Full finger drill.
Yes, you would just have to mention this to the driller and they can do a drilling layout that would match her back up release and allow this to have more hook than a traditional house ball.
when it says it comes with a 2 year warranty, what does that consist of?

do you have a raw hammer 14 pounds with the pin 3 1/2 to 4 from the cg
We are not able to confirm the pin placement prior to ordering but you may request the pin you want when placing the order and we will do our best to find a ball that matches or call you to go over what we have if it is not a match.
If I am wanting a 12lb ball, would I order a 13 to accommodate for drilling?
Drilling will usually only take out 1-3 ounces and if you order a 12lb ball then you may request for the ball to be 12lbs 3ounces so that it will be closer to 12lbs after drilling. To do this, first select 12lbs in the selection box. Then just below the selection box for the weight there is link that says Click to request pin/top weight and if you click this it will open a box where you can type in the specifics that you want on the ball including the overall weight.
