So far I really like what I see from the new Hammer Ruthless. It picks up in the mid lane and has a strong overall hook without being jumpy. For me that means when I make a mistake there is a better chance of leaving a makeable spare instead of some crazy split. I've only used it on a house shot so far, but I can see using this on sports shots when I want to ball down from the Ebonite Futura or Columbia 300 Chaos.

Here is my take on the new Hammer Ruthless. The new Ruthless features the 40 Watt symmetrical core wrapped by a Dark Blue/Blue/White Juiced Solid cover. Factory finish is 2000 Abralon.
My "vitals" are a 405 rev rate with a PAP of 5 9/16 over and 1/8 up. I drilled the Ruthless with an 85 x 5 ½ x 70 layout. I have used this ball at factory finish and at 4000 Abralon. I have tried the new THS and the new Kegel Tungsten pattern.
This is the "brother" ball to the Flawless that was released earlier this year. This ball has the Juiced Solid cover which does, across both patterns I threw on, allows for more overall motion compared to a Flawless. With the layout I used, the Ruthless allows me to have a more "up the boards" option because of the higher RG/lower diff core. However, the ball does show continuous recovery off of the spot. It is not the strongest ball but it is very predictable and allows me to go straighter on medium volumes/medium/shorter patterns. It is controllable like the Web series but with the higher RG, it goes a little further downlane with a little stronger motion from what I am seeing.

Love the new Ruthless
The Ruthless has a very strong arcing motion but yet gets down the lane with ease. If you are looking for a ball that is controllable yet strong in the middle of the lane the Ruthless is the piece you are looking for.
