Hammer Scorpion

I used a 60 x 4 x 25 layout on this ball, which put the pin at 2 o’clock. This ball has been very versatile. I have been able to use this ball, with 1000 surface, on shark and red square challenge patterns and also on my local house shot (with 3000 surface). This ball is a great first ball out of the bag on fresh conditions. It is smooth, continuous, and for me, is a great ball to use before stepping down to my Web Pearl, when the fronts start to dry up!

Hammer Scorpion ball review

The Scorpion is much more ball than I expected. I put my favorite symmetrical layout on it and it picks up earlier than I expected but doesn't quit down lane as I would expect from balls that are that early. It will be the first ball out of my bag when I'm on heavier volumes or longer sport patterns. It also gives me the control I like to see out of a stronger, heavy oil ball.

picks of the mids great

Best Uses:

house shot killer

sting the competition

Drilled 4 ¾ x 35 this ball is the ULTIMATE house shot killer! At 63 my rev rate is not what it used to be, at a rate of 300 rpm with my axis tilt at 12 degrees, axis rotation at 70 degrees and ball speed at 16 mph. This ball picked up the mids extremely well and instead of dying on the back it blasted thru the rack (even on a used pattern). Having the same weight block as the Purple Hammer and a proven coverstock will be the perfect combination for any bowler.

Hammer Scorpion

So, here are some initial impressions on the new Hammer Scorpion. The Scorpion features a modified LED symmetrical core (similar to those used in the Purple Urethane Hammers) with a Semtex Hybrid cover. I have had a chance to try it on fresh THS and a 42' 5:1 challenge pattern with 27 ml of oil. I did a bit of an experiment in going with a 60 x 4 x 25 layout. I have not drilled such a strong pin placement in a long time. I tried the ball at box surface which is 2000 Siaair on THS and then put a 4000 Siaair surface on it when I again tried it fresh THS and the fresh challenge pattern. My “vitals” are a 405 rev rate with a PAP of 5 9/16 over and 1/8 up.

Surprisingly, the Scorpion covers more boards than I expected at either surface. The motion is a little smoother and continuous but again, it covers a lot of territory so to speak. I prefer the 4000 Siaair surface simply because it creates a little easier length. At that surface there was no issue with the Scorpion properly reading the midlane on either THS or the challenge pattern. It is easy to see the earlier read at 2000 Siaair.

I see this ball in play on medium to higher volume patterns with medium to longer distance patterns. It does not have the quickest response off the friction...but it is absolutely smooth and continuous and again should be in play in many different environments.

The Scorpion already made one TV show in Portland, ME several weeks ago and is formally available as of July 30, 2021. See your local pro shop for more information on the Hammer Scorpion.

Pros:

Great on variety of patterns

Cons:

When the fronts start to go and backends tighten

Best Uses:

Most flat patterns or house patterns

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Massive sting

The scorpion is a great hybrid and a very strong piece for its price point. Even though it's in our mid range category this ball rolls more like a strong upper mid. Reads the lane just early enough to still be able to maintain enough continuation downlane to get through the pins properly. This ball definitely has the versatility to be used on variety of patterns.
