The Hammer Rip'D Solid introduces the Aggression Solid CFI coverstock and is combined with the Rip'D core. This core shape is a combination of the Scandal and Gauntlet core shapes and carries their success. This ball is designed to provide awesome mid lane traction and give continuous down lane motion when used on heavy oil conditions.
This bowling ball is Carbon Fiber Infused! Carbon fiber is one of the toughest materials on earth. Hammer decided to add this material to the inner core of this ball for added strength and durability allowing them to offer an incredible 3 year warranty.
The Rip'd Solid has the same great motion as the Rip'd but MUCH more stronger. This ball for me is strong in the midlane and looooves heavy oil. When this ball hooks too much, you can ball down to the Rip'd and maintain the same line and motion through the lane. Don't be fooled, this ball is clean in the fronts but reads the midlane and rolls through the pocket while transitioning smoothly. ANNND the pin carry is tremendous!Get this ball!!!!!
Today I am doing a joint review of Hammer's New Rip'D & Rip'D Solid. I drilled them identical to each other at 65*4 5/8*40 (Pin above bridge/Mass Bias in Thumb) so I could get a true read from each of them by just throwing either one first.Rip'D Solid - This is ALOT of ball which is great for higher volume/longer oil patterns. This new Rip'D core which is a combination of the Gauntlet & Scandal core shapes just overpowers "missed breakpoints" as the recovery is amazing! This ball works wonders for the player that wants to open the lanes up & watch their ball chew through some oil. This all can work well for the tweener player also, just with a weaker drilling.Rip'D (Hybrid) - This ball is simply INSANE!!!!! As long as you have a bit of oil in front of you, you will have fun watching this ball circle the lane with so much stored energy it still hits the pocket like a freight train! This is the PERFECT go-to ball when the Rip'D Solid has burned up the fronts & is placking 7/10pins. This fast-revving core comes out of the pattern with a force behind it! The shelf appeal this ball has just makes you want to purchase at first sight. After purchase & drilling, be prepared to have a difficult time missing outside of your breakpoint without recovery! These balls are great for high volume tournament play. They work well in league also, just be ready to move a few more boards left than usual!
True. Get the Rip'D and Rip'D Solid and get a free Yeti tumbler! A necessity for all those Hammerheads out there! But don't just get these new products from Hammer just for a tumbler, you need these great products for they're fit in your arsenal.Hammer's new Aggression CFI solid coverstock gives incredible mid lane traction with a continuous down lane motion as advertised. Since my speed is on the slower side and I am rev dominant, this ball works well on higher volume patterns but if your speed dominant and need revs then this is the ball for you.
This ball is special! I drilled my with a 55 x 5 x 50 with put the pin under my bridge. This ball picks up so strongly in the mids and still keeps energy and makes a very strong and continuous down lane motion. This ball is a must have!!
Rip'd Solid is perfect for medium to heavy oil. It reads the mid lane very well and still has continuous down lane motion. Strongly recommend to anyone looking for a high performance ball, you will not be disappointed with this ball!!
Here are my thoughts on the new Rip'd and Rip'd solid by Hammer. I am doing this as a joint review for both balls as they are being released together as a new "one/two punch" in Hammer's asymmetrical bowling balls. The Rip'd comes in comes factory polished and comes with the Aggression Hybrid CFI cover in black/gold/white swirl. The Rip'd Solid comes with Aggression Solid CFI cover at 2000 Abralon and has a blue/black/orange swirl cover. Both feature the same asymmetrical core and like with all Hammer releases, come with an industry leading 3 year warranty. I have tried the Rip'd Solid at box surface and at an Ebonite "Clean n' Sheen" finish. I have tried both releases on various THS as well as USBC White. I drilled both with the same layout- 60 x 5 ¼ x 40- no balance hole was used.There is a definite difference in reaction between the 2 new releases. At box, the Rip'd does glide through the front quite easily and especially for an asymmetrical core, gets around the corner quite easily and continues on both THS and White patterns. With 4000 Abralon (just to knock off the factory shine) any slight over/under was erased but in the overall, the same reaction characteristic was present. The new Rip'd reminds me a bit of the original Widow Legend in terms of being able to get around the corner with ease in an asymmetrical core. There is a significant difference in performance with the Rip'd Solid with the different cover. At box surface, I was easily 10-15 boards further left throwing to the same spot. I had to really rotate the ball at the release in order to get the ball down the lane and to recover in the back. At "Clean n' Sheen" finish, I liked the performance better though I was still several boards further left compared to the Rip'd.. The Solid requires higher volumes of oil and/or higher balls speeds. Those with lower rev rates will also benefit from the Solid's Motion. The Rip'd will be a little more versatile in handling more volumes and pattern lengths.
The Rip'd Solid is possibly the strongest solid I have ever thrown before. It really digs into the lane and gets through the heavy oil, while still retaining energy on the back end. It really rips through the pins! Definitely a great addition to my bag for heavy oil! This ball is a must have in your bag!
