Hammer Redemption Hybrid

Redemption is a beautiful thing and even better when we are talking about a high-performance Hammer bowling ball. The Hammer Redemption Hybrid ball offers a shiny version of the successful ball that fits perfectly between the Solid and Pearl versions. With the combination of the Redemption core and the Aggression NE Hybrid coverstock, this ball offers a great overall hook. This bowling ball utilizes DOT and is Carbon Fiber Infused! DOT allows you to drill anywhere on the ball and offers toughness to the ball. Carbon fiber is one of the toughest materials on earth. Hammer decided to add this material to the outer core of this ball for added strength and durability allowing them to offer an incredible 2 year warranty.

75 x 4 x 70 - PAP 4 ½ -> and ½^ - Speed - 15mph - Rev Rate 3

I went with a smoother reaction layout with this ball and it is still a stronger motion than I expected. The Redemption line has been a great success for the Hammer line and this one does not disappoint. I am able to stay firm with my speed and to the right with this ball, but I can also slow it down and move left too. There is still plenty of hitting power no matter how the balls finds the headpin.

Great look and great performance

The Redemption Hybrid is an excellent compliment to the Redemption Solid and Pearl. You can expect to see a nice midlane read and strong continuous motion. For me, it has been my go to ball once heavier conditions have started to break down as well as the first ball out of my bag on a house shot. If you liked the Solid and the Pearl then I highly recommend you get this in your hand immediately.

This Ball is Special

This is my favorite benchmark ball! I didn't know what to expect because I really wasn't a fan of the Redemption line. However, when I threw this ball I knew it would fit my game perfectly. For me, this ball goes longer down the lane and then responses off the spot quickly but doesn't over react! It allows me to play multiple parts of the lanes & angles. It hits the pins like a truck!

Hammer Strikes Again With The Redemption Hybrid

I am very pleased with this new piece in the Redemption line. I used it fresh out of the box during matchplay at the PBA50 Regional in Grants Pass and took home the win. I hit the cover with a light scuff on the fresh and just saw plain magic. I never had to give the pocket away as my angles were tight and let the ball do all the work. This pattern was a bit speed sensitive so the best thing to do was not shove it and just roll it. Keeping the ball right in front of me I could see it save all of it's power going through the rack. I have it 4 right of my Solid and a bit cleaner and less angular than my Pearl. What a great piece with coloration that's very easy on the eyes.

AMAZING - Redemption Hybrid be thy name

AMAZING!!! This ball is by far the most versatile of any of the Redemption's and fits perfectly between the Pearl and Solid. Combining the roll of the solid and the snap of the pearl down lane. I laid mine out to compliment the Black Widow Pink with the same layout. Pin under the middle finger and cg kicked to the right about 5pm and the mass bias is to the right of my thumb. I got the exact same thing as my Widow Pink except the cover and core (Redemption core is close to the Widow core) combo let it pick up a second sooner and blend the snappy backends out. Sooooooo Happy with this ball!!!!!

Hammer Redemption Hybrid

Here is my take on the new Hammer Redemption Hybrid. The Redemption Hybrid features the same low RG core as the earlier Redemptions wrapped by the Aggression NE Hybrid cover colored in navy/red/white.
My "vitals" are a 405 rev rate with a PAP of 5 9/16 over and 1/8 up. My Redemption Hybrid is drilled with a 40 x 4 ½ x 15 layout. I have tried this ball at box surface (factory compound sheen), 1000 worn Abralon and 3000 Abralon. I have tried this Redemption on fresh/burnt THS as well as a burnt 44 foot collegiate sport pattern.
My take on this new release may be a little different than other people. I see this ball as the "transition ball" from the other Redemptions. At factory finish, I had a little difficulty getting the ball to read the lane at the right spot and continue through the pins properly. However, with the additional surface, I was able to use the ball effectively use this ball when the lanes are in transition. By that I mean when other Redemptions put me into bad angles after the lanes begin to transition, I was able to take Redemption Hybrid, jam it into where the pattern had opened up and have it stand up nicely. Thus, my sense is that this release will not be the first ball out for fresh but absolutely will be in play when the lanes begin to transition.

Hammer Redemption Hybrid

For me, the Hammer Redemption Hybrid is the most versatile of the three redemption releases. I used a 50 x 4.5 x 30 layout on this ball which put the pin above my ring finger. In comparison, the Solid and Pearl version have more of a forward downline motion while the Hybrid is more rounded and continuous. Even though this is a strong, high performance ball, I can still use it on my local house patterns. You can watch this ball go down lane at Tamer Bowling Reviews on YouTube.

Great hybrid

I threw this ball out of box and hit it with a 3000 pad. Out of box this ball was super clean and had some continuation. In oil it didn't quite read enough leaving the 2 pin and late 10..when i got it to the dry it was solid 9 and 4 pin. I then decided to hit the cover with a 3000 pad and then I was able to get the ball through the pins correctly. Ball smoothed out just enough on the dry and read the oil 2 to 3ft sooner. This ball will be good once the fronts start drying up and there is some carry down. On a fresh house shot this ball will pretty to start with and even ending with. On patterns this be a good game 3 and on ball.

Nice step down from the solid

The Redemption Hybrid is a nice step down from the Redemption Solid. It was about a 3 or 4 board move right with my feet and is cleaner through the front part of the lane. Like the solid it still reads the friction well and has a strong arc without being to sharp. This ball for me is a bit forward rolling which should help blend out league night wet/dry conditions.
