BEST BALL ON THE MARKET IN YEARS
I stand by that headline. The Hammer Rhodman Pearl is absolutely the best ball I have ever drilled out of the probably 100+ I've tried. This ball is unbelievable easy through the front part of the lane, but extremely heavy rolling in the mids and backend. There is just no better ball on the market right now for your typical house shot, and it continues to win again and again on the pro tour. You are absolutely giving pins away every game that you aren't throwing this ball. I've drilled three with completely different layouts and every one is a winner. All styles and experience levels will have success with this ball on a variety of lane conditions. It has even been impressing staffers from other companies (Jealous they don't have one!). I will be picking up a few more cases of these very soon to stockpile.
Please do yourself a favor and get yourself one or a few ASAP and watch your scores improve!

Best selling ball in this center
Of the past 6 months, no medium to high performance ball has outsold the Rhodman Pearl in my pro shop inside a 24 lane center. I have drilled two for myself, as well, and have thrown them on a variety of league and tournament patterns. Excellent mid lane roll for a pearl, with that expectedly hard reaction off the spot!

Hammer Rhodman Pearl
Here is my take on the Hammer Rhodman Pearl. This release features the same core as the original Rhodman with a purple Juiced Maxx Pearl 2000 Abralon polished cover. Like all Hammer equipment, it carries with it the industry leading 3 year warranty. This is the 2nd TNBA Rhodman release by Hammer.
I have tried this ball at box and at a straight 2000 Abralon finish. My rev rate is 405 and have a PAP of 5 9/16 over and 1/8 up. Layout used was 50 x 5 ¼ x 70 with a weight hole 4 inches over/2 inches down from grip center. I have used this ball on a varied of THS/modified THS as well USBC White.
Like the original Rhodman (and the Bad Intention series of Hammers) the Rhodman Pearl is a very early rolling ball. What distinguishes the Rhodman Pearl's motion from the original Rhodman is that it does have a more angular move. (Again, more angular within the parameters of this early rolling core)
I have found best success with this ball where there is a big over/under and need to blend out the pattern. Alternatively, this is a good selection for when an original Rhodman (or original Bad Intentions) is burning up and the bowler seeks a similar motion but with a little more length. I also like this ball on the medium to shorter distance patterns where there is at least a medium volume to the pattern. Again, this ball is best suited for blending out over/under either front to back or side to side...as long as there is sufficient volume to the pattern.

A must in your bag
There is only 1 word to describe this ball "AMAZING". Rhodman pearl is the most versital pearl that I have throw in a while. I have throw this on many house shot and medium sport patterns and it always performs. this is the 1st ball out of bag and I never leave home without it. It will definately be going to USBC Open Championships.

Absolute Must Have Pearl
This has got to be one of the best, if not the best pearl ball In have ever owned. The ball motion is very predictable and strong. Nice and clean through the heads and midlane with plenty of punch left.for the pins. Great for normal house shots, yet will respond on heavier oil as well. This will stay in my bag for a long time.
