Hammer Ruthless

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.

Hammer Ruthless

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.
See your local proshop for more information about the new Ruthless by Hammer!

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.

Question:

would it help a person with ball speed at11m.to 13mil

9/3/2019 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer:

If your rev rate is lower to match your ball speed then you could use this. However, in most cases if you speed is lower you need a ball to get down the lane better before it reacts. This ball has a duller finish to help the ball read earlier and so it would not usually work well with someone who has a slower ball speed.

Question:

Does the 10 lb ball have a different core?

9/6/2019 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer:

Yes most bowling balls have to adjust the weight block as you drop in weight so the 10lb ball will not have the same weight block at the higher weights over 14lbs.

Question:

THE HAMMER RUSTHLESS CANT BE POLISH.

9/7/2019 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer:

You can polish this ball to get more length if you would like but you can also check for a ball that already comes designed to read the lanes later if you need more length. This ball out-of-box would want to read earlier on the lanes with a smooth hook reaction.
