Performance at a GREAT PRICE!

My Hammer Raw Solid is drilled 55 x 4.5 x 30 and this baby is a monster! I have yet to try this ball on a sport pattern, but this ball is now my first ball / go-to immediately on a house shot or league. I kept the surface as OOB and this ball allows me to keep my angles in front of me on a fresh house pattern! I can't wait to try this ball with some more surface and see more versatility.

5/5 Stars

Great on variety of patterns


Not to be used on longer patterns

Best Uses:

Most medium to short house of sport patterns

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend


Raw solid is definitely a great piece to have that works on variety of patterns ranging from medium to short. With the solid covers it's able to read the heavier volumes up front and give you a very controlled and readable motion in the backends. I pretty solid piece on house conditions that let's you stay up against the friction for a longer period.

Best Uses:

Medium to Heavy oil

Raw Hammer Black

I am pleased to see the Raw series reappear! This Raw Hammer Black is a great piece to introduce new players to our performance and for our more experienced players, it's a great piece to smooth out shorter and drier patterns. Definitely has a spot in my bag for when they get tricky and a bit scorched.

Have an answer to this question?


With Hammer you can compare the balls using their FCC rating to compare the strength of the Finish, Core, and Cover. The Raw Solid is Finish-8.5, Core-5.25, Cover-9 and the Raw Hybrid is Finish-7.5, Core-5.25, Cover-8.75. So the Solid will have a stronger finish and cover to give it more hook potential. The Solid also reads earlier on the lane while the Hybrid reacts later on the lanes. This also causes the Solid to work more for medium oil while the Hybrid works more in medium to lighter oil.
