This Ball is absolutely amazing!
This ball is amazing! I through a two-handed back-up ball and the hook is amazing! I stand with my left foot on board 26 throwing across the second arrow from the left, it goes to the center of the lane and hooks straight into the 1-2 pocket, grabbing and throwing all the pins. Very explosive and amazing for strikes! I would highly recommend this ball, just make sure you follow through all the way so that it hooks properly. Happy Bowling!!!

Hammer Statement Hybrid
Here is my take on the new Hammer Statement Hybrid. The new Statement Hybrid features low RG/high differential Statement core wrapped by an Aggression Hybrid CFI coverstock colored in Black/Aqua/Blue. The ball comes with a 1000 Abralon polished box surface.
My "vitals" are a 405 rev rate with a PAP of 5 9/16 over and 1/8 up. I drilled the Statement Hybrid with a 30x6x20 layout. I have used this ball at factory finish and at 3000 Abralon. I have tried the new Statement Hybrid on THS, Kegel Tungsten and PBA Dragon.
At the outset, I will say this is probably my favorite Statement of the 3 across a variety of patterns. I thought the Statement Solid was great on heavy volume patterns. I was actually pretty impressed with how well the Statement Solid stored energy for an asymmetric core ball. What I think impresses me most about the Statement Hybrid is how much recovery the ball has. While many times asymmetrics for me are good on heavier volumes, they sometimes spin up too quickly and can lose energy. Not the Statement Hybrid. There is no laziness in the motion with this ball. The Hybrid has lots of downlane recovery by any standard. Even at 3000 Abralon, the Hybrid had a very sharp/defined motion on multiple pattern distances. I had a very good look on Kegel Tungsten and THS. On Dragon, needed more surface in order for the ball to be effective. I think the Hybrid will be at its best on medium to heavier volumes. I also think, given the amount of downlane recovery, with proper surface preparation, many styles can effectively use this new release.
