Hammer Scorpion Sting

Scorpion Sting

Scorpion Sting (Pearl) is your go to when it comes to medium to dry league house shots. This is a great tournament transition ball during your 6 to 10 game tournaments. This ball responded well with a light 2000 pad and has been even better in performance for me! Do not miss out on this great compliment to the Scorpion Hybrid.

Hammer Scorpion Sting

I had a chance to work with the new Hammer Scorpion Sting today. I tried it on our fresh lower volume THS. The layout I used is 50 x 4 1/2 x 25. I tried it at box surface which is Crown Factory Compound. The Scorpion Sting has a modified symmetric core used in the original Hammer Scorpion wrapped by the purple/silver/turquoise Symtex Pearl cover. I have tried the Scorpion Sting on Kegel Neon, our house shot, which is a low volume, longer pattern.

The intent of the ball is to be a cleaner version of the original Scorpion...a ball to fit in between the Widow Ghost and the Ocean Vibe. From what I see, it appears that the intended purpose of the ball was achieved. For a compare and contrast, I threw my Ocean Vibe today with the Scorpion Sting. The Ocean Vibe, even with a pin down layout which should be a slower/longer transition, is to my eye, a bit quicker than the Sting. The Sting is a little slower/smoother than the Vibe...but definitely quicker than the original Scorpion. Thus, the Scorpion Sting will be best used on medium to lighter volumes of oil- definitely in play when the pattern is breaking down and you need a cleaner piece. I also think that this ball will be effective with a number of different players, styles, rev rates etc.

The Hammer Scorpion Sting is currently available. See your pro shop for more information!
