Hammer Scorpion Low Flare

Hammer continually strives to enhance its bowling ball lineup, aiming to address specific needs and create a well-rounded gaming experience. While the Envy Tour balls have gained immense popularity with their low flare cores, the introduction of the Scorpion Low Flare adds a unique dimension. Departing from the recent symmetric low flare designs, this ball is a notable inclusion. The innovation behind the Scorpion Low Flare involves the removal of the flip puck from the LED 3.0 core, a feature familiar in the Scorpion Sting. This modification has effectively lowered the differential and flare potential, aligning the ball seamlessly with Hammer's vision. With the Scorpion Low Flare, bowlers can anticipate a smooth and predictable ball motion, driven by the carefully calculated core numbers and the cutting-edge Semtex Hybrid cover. The ball is meticulously finished at 2000 Siaair, ensuring optimal performance on the lanes. Versatility is a key attribute of the Scorpion Low Flare, making it a suitable choice for bowlers of all styles. High-rev players will find it effective across various conditions, while those with lower rev rates can leverage its utility on challenging lane scenarios and during transitions. In essence, the Scorpion Low Flare emerges as an essential companion for any bowler, ensuring a competitive edge whether the game demands finesse or power. Don't hit the lanes without this game-changing addition to your arsenal.

Incredible Ball, Incredible Price Point!

Hammer line bowling balls have been a benchmark of innovation with balls that have been consistent, have control and continues to be an industry leader. The Hammer Scorpion Low Flare continues in that line of bowling balls that have a great advantage over the competition….and that is this ball is underrated and has tremendous control! The Scorpion Low Flare is an absolutely phenomenal bowling ball. It is very clean, has a very consistent ball motion and is very controllable off the spot and through the pin deck. As this ball is symmetrical, my layout on this ball is very simple; stacked drill will the pin above the ring finger, and the CG directly below. This allows for a more consistent and cleaner ball shape and motion. This ball can be utilized on fresh or medium lane conditions and is a ball that is a must have in every ball bag. For the price point, you cannot go wrong with the Hammer Scorpion Low Flare.

Hammer Scorpion Low Flare

Scorpion Low Flare. I can’t say enough about this gem. I’ve only used it so far on a very challenging Earl Anthony pattern and then the pro am with the fans after on a house shot. I was able to use the Scorpion Low Flare through the last 5 games of qualifying and 4 games in the cashers round. I’m looking forward to using the Low Flare on many medium/heavy oil patterns as it is so smooth getting to the spot but responds nicely to any shape you need to create as the games go on. Don’t sleep on this one!!

Hammer Scorpion Low Flare review!

I drilled the Hammer Scorpion Low Flare 4.5” x 30 to be a medium response hybrid symmetric, mildly strong through the mid-lane with a little kick, and it performs perfectly. Removing the flip puck from the LED 3.0 core found inside the Scorpion Sting lowered the differential and flare potential, making this ball a perfect fit for Hammer. I have had tremendous success on our 42’ THS, I am able to play in the oil cutting of my angles, and the Scorpion Low Flare can still get the corner pins out. The hybrid cover gives me the best of both worlds, enough length to play straighter, with traction when I need recovery. When you need to open the lane up and create more shape, the Scorpion Low Flare has you covered. A very versatile piece of equipment, this is one I have been looking for all season long. I used it on a 6:1 39 ft. challenge pattern and whacked them for a four-game block, then went to Aalborg 35’ and had even more success. You can order the Hammer Scorpion Low Flare now from Bowler Builders Pro Shop, and pro shops everywhere. Nothing hits like a Hammer!!

Awesome

The Scorpion Low Flare is controllable, predictable, versatile, comes back from everywhere with the right angle. This ball will fit many bowling styles and should be a must have ball for league and tournament bowlers. I have never had a Hammer Scorpion ball before. I drilled this because I was interested in the low flare part of it. I thought this might be a true mid level roll and control ball for me. It has been exactly that. The Semtex Hybrid cover with the core combo allows for strong arc but more importantly, it allows for control and predictability.

Arc and Predicabilty

I have never had a scorpion ball before. I drilled this because I was interested in the low flare option of it. I thought this might be a true mid level roll and control ball for me. Let me confirm for you that this is exactly that. I have struggled to find an option in my bag when it came to i true control ball that could handle oil. This ball with the flip block removed from the scorpion core is just that. The cover Semtex Hybrid cover with the core combo allows for strong arc but more importantly, it allows for control and predictability. Every bag needs one of these balls.

Run, Don't walk to your pr shop operator to get yours.

Scorpion Low Flare

The original Hammer Scorpion Hybrid I enjoyed a lot. Especially for house shot conditions, league or tournaments. The newest addition, Hammer Scorpion Low Flare (Hybrid) is even better. The low differential on this ball allows the ball to retain more energy downlane and be more continuous through the pins. In comparison of the two, this original Scorpion Hybrid rolled forward much earlier than some bowlers may have liked, this one retains a lot of energy and will have a lot more carry with the pains. I drilled mine with my favorite pin down layout, and as you can see, even Marshall Kent showcased the Scorpion Low Flare with a pin down. This ball is great with a pin down, I even ordered a new one for a pin up version. Don't wait on this ball! This ball will be good for house shots, but if you are the avid tournament bowler, this ball is great on long patterns (PBA Weber 45' - current pattern) and short patterns, and maybe everything in between! THIS BALL IS GREAT!

Scorpion Low Flare

I drilled mine 20 X 4 X 50. The Hammer Scorpion Low Flare is an excellent lower differential option. This is the ball for you if you want a smooth and predictable shape. The LED 3.0 Low Flare core and Semtex Hybrid cover provide outstanding control and allow me to stay further right longer. The Scorpion Low Flare will be a staple in my tournament bag for years to come!

Hammer Scorpion Low Flare

Today's review will focus on the new Hammer Scorpion Low Flare. I was a huge fan of the Web Tour series...especially the Web Tour Hybrid. I particularly liked the slower response those balls offered with the low RG/low differential core...especially on shorter patterns and on a variety of fresh sport patterns where I needed control of the lane. The Hammer Scorpion Low Flare, has a symmetrical low RG/low differential LED 3.0 Low Flare core wrapped by a purple and black Semtex Hybrid cover, I drilled one with a 60 x 5 x 70 layout...the same as my favorite Web Tour Hybrid. I used mine at box surface (2000 Siaair) on fairly fresh THS and on a medium volume 40 foot 4:1 challenge pattern.

After throwing the new Scorpion Low Flare, I LOVED it- it was exactly what I was hoping it to be! That unique motion is back in the bag! The Scorpion Low Flare, is definitely a little stronger than the Web Tour Hybrid. The slower response controlled motion is there and that is what I was looking for most of all. Like with the Web Tour Hybrid, I expect this ball to be in play on shorter patterns and actually a variety of fresh sport patterns. I think appropriate surface adjustments will allow this ball to be in play on different volumes of fresh patterns. That being said, I believe this ball is best used on fresh- to blend out and smooth out patterns. In comparison, the Scorpion Low Flare is similar in slower response motion to an Envy Tour but less overall. I cannot wait to use this ball in upcoming events!

The Scorpion Low Flare is now available- see your local pro shop for more information.

Hammer Scorpion Low Flare

Control. We're not talking skid/flip. We're talking about control. We're not talking huge early hook, we're talking about control. The Hammer Scorpion Low Flare is a first ball out of the bag type of piece. You'll want to use this on fresh oil and especially on oil difficult patterns. This is a ball that you will be able to keep in front of you and have a very controllable motion to and thru the pins. It very much reminds me of the original Web Tour that came out several years ago. It has enough motion that it will be good on house shots as well as hard shots. Great all-around ball.

Scorpion Low flare!

The scorpion Low flare is going to be that ball sits in the middle to low end of your bag. The motion is reminds me so much of the original web tour with just a little more pop on the back. What to expect if you never threw a Web tour It’s going to be very smooth through the front of the lane and very controllable motion on the backend.

Hello there! The upper-mid performance Track Legion Solid would react earlier and more aggressively than the mid performance Hammer Scorpion Low Flare hybrid coverstock.

Question:


How does this ball compare to the black and gold black widow

4/4/2024 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer:


When comparing Hammer bowling balls they have made it pretty easy because they provide a FCC rating system which tells you the strength of the Finish, Core, and Coverstock. The Scorpion Low Flare FCC rating is Total- 25, Finish- 8.75, Core- 6.75, Cover- 9.5. The Hammer Black Widow Black/Gold FCC rating was Total-25.75, Finish-7.25, Core-8.75, Cover-9.75. So the Scorpion has a higher rating on the finish with the duller 2000 grit finish and that will help it read earlier on the lanes but the Widow Black/Gold has a stronger cover and weight block to give it a higher total hook potential.
