Rebel Ball Review
The Hammer Rebel is a ball that I was really excited to drill when it came out. I was quite surprised to see that the ball was quite flippy downlane while still being extremely predictable. I see this ball being great for the common league bowler along with anyone bowling an event on a lighter medium-medium pattern. Hammer did a phenomenal job with this one!

Predictable down lane motion
Hey Y'all... Stefanie Johnson here... all I can say about this ball is that it's a MUST HAVE if you are looking for a ball that stores energy in the mid lane and has enough left to have a predictable flippy motion down lane. YES predictable flippy motion... I said it! I wasn't expecting this reaction from a symmetrical core but it's very predictable and that's exactly what I like.
I recently used it at our PWBA stop in Florida (40' pattern) and it allowed me to play the lanes more left-to-right and open up my angles. A great addition to your arsenal - something exciting for the Hammer brand!

Worth the money for sure!
It says medium oil but it moves more on heavy oil than my assassin does which is a med/heavy oil ball.. It has beautiful movement and hits hard even though I switched to a 14lb..

This ball gives a motion that I haven't seen in the Hammer line in awhile. I drilled my rebel with a 50 x 5 x 65 layout which put the pin right under my bridge. I was shocked by how clean this ball is in the fronts and gives a controllable skip/flip reaction. This ball will be getting a lot of use during league play and THS tourneys!!

Versatile Benchmark Medium Lane Pattern Ball
The RebeL is a special motion that we have not had in the Hammer brand for a long time. The symmetrical weight block helps revs up in the midlanes, which then provides a controllable skid/flip ball motion. I know that is hard to read with both motions in the same sentence, but this ball definitely provides a very clean through the fronts with a great ball motion in the backends for various medium lane patterns. It fits perfect between the Viral & Arson High Flare Solid... For a shiny ball, this ball can handle the medium lane patterns amazing without having over/under issues... This is definitely gonna be in my bag for future tournaments for sure! I have had a few different styles of bowlers throw this ball and all 3 have been impressed with the ball motion that saw.
This ball comes with Hammer's 3 year warrantee which provides the BEST value for your $$$!
I think the new RebeL will be a great ball for the typical medium lane patterns that offers a clean motion through the fronts with a controllable ball motion off the spot down the lane. This is a favorite ball for the Ebonite International National Staffers as well as many of the amateur pros!
A very versatile ball... You will be impressed!

This ball gives me great length and a smooth roll into the pocket and still hits very hard! Great for drier lanes or when the scandal pearl is too much it allows me to stay in the same spot!

I would buy a stronger oil pattern ball next time
I have had this ball for one year. I started last winter league with a 178 average. At the end of this summer league I am down to a 150 bowler if I am lucky. I was getting 500 and 600 easy.
