MUST HAVE PEARL!!
I only had a few times to throw this ball before everything shutdown, but it was a treat. Clean through the fronts with continuous motion through the mids and ALL of the energy was still in the backend of the lane. The ball never quit! Quite versatile to say the least. I was able to play multiple parts of the lanes on a "typical" house shot pattern. I cant wait to get back on the lanes to throw this one.

This pearl is perfectly aggressive! I tend to have a hit or miss with pearl surfaces out of box. This ball I had no problem with the box finish. Drilled this with putting the pin in the ring finger with a pin distance from pap about 3.25. This layout gives me a great skid flip motion that I havent seen in awhile with using this layout which shows me the pearl shell is aggressive. Ball allows you to play many different angles . If playing straighter near the track the ball still gives the cleaness through the front and explodes down lane through the pins. BUT once the lanes open up....GET LEFT AND GET AT IT! Ball will not burn up and quit after getting down lane. The Pearl AND Solid are an awsome 1 to 2 punch that you can build an arsenal around.

This is the first higher end pearl ball from Brunswick in the Hammer line. The name along with its counterpart is appropriately called The Redemption Pearl. Such an interesting piece in that its much like my Hammer Rip'd Hybrid and My Hammer Statement Pearl however, this piece seems to be a little more even rolling. It has the roll of the Rip'd Hybrid and the angularity of the Statement Pearl. Very much a keeper in the bag. I love Asymmetric pearl balls but sometimes they get a little flat downlane for me - this ball does not do any of that. Usable from game 1 to game 3 however I must say on the fresh - I liked the Solid a little bit more and then transitioned to the pearl and kept my angles open. From there, I ruled the boards with no fear of "Hook-Stop" - the ball kept coming!
Add the DOT technology and wow - drillable from any angle you wish.
Bravo and get this ball and the Solid.

Redemption Pearl - An Absolute Gem
The Redemption Pearl is a benchmark ball that will see lots of play because of it's versatility. I have used it on THS, on Chameleon in a sport league where every pattern plays extremely hard, and looking forward to using it in PBA50 competition in two weeks in Oregon.

Hammer Redemption Pearl
Here is my take on the new Redemption Pearl, one of the very first Hammers made under the Brunswick umbrella. The Redemption Pearl features a low RG/high diff asymmetric core (using DOT technology) wrapped by the Aggression NE Pearl cover. Factory finish is 500 Siaair finished with Crown Factory Compound. Color is Black/Blue/Gold.
My vitals are 403 rev rate with a PAP of 5 9/16 over and 1/8 up. I've tried this new Redemption Pearl at box surface and 2000 Abralon. I've used the ball on leftover Abbey Road, THS, and Route 66. The layout used was 50 x 4 1/2 x 50, no weight hole.
This ball has grown on me in a very short period across the variety of patterns. At all surfaces, even on burnt patterns, the Redemption Pearl shows excellent length and unlike other asymmetric core balls which can often spin up too quickly and lose energy, the Redemption Pearl continued through the backend efficiently. I also found the ball to be in play easily on the medium sport pattern, longer sport pattern as well as THS and was a good benchmark ball to judge the pattern. Given this level of versatility, I expect that this ball will work for a variety of styles and rev rates. Further, I believe this release will be in play on a variety of patterns both in terms of volumes and lengths, except for the extremes.
