The new Hammer Sauce
Here is my take on the new Hammer Sauce. The new Sauce features a modified Contrusion Core wrapped around a Red/Black/Magenta Aggression Solid CFI coverstock. The ball is finished at 2000 Abralon.
My "vitals" are a 405 rev rate with a PAP of 5 9/16 over and 1/8 up. I drilled a Sauce with a 50 x 5 1/2 x 20 layout, no weight hole. I have used this ball at box finish. I have tried the new Sauce on THS and on 37' PBA Petraglia Sport pattern.
I recall well the original Sauce and Arson lines and their hallmark was strong, smooth, controlled ball motion. The updated Sauce is no different but with a very aggressive cover and thus a stronger overall motion/hook potential. On THS the new Sauce does not see over/under. It is easily allows the bowler to get on the oil and throw it to the dry but without the over/under that is often seen on house patterns. Similarly, on the high volume (29ml) 37' sport pattern, the new Sauce was able to handle the increased volume by being several boards further right of a similarly drilled Statement Solid with similar surface preparation. The Sauce, even though it is not angular in its motion, does show plenty of continuation and hitting power. For many, the new Sauce may be a good benchmark ball. This core/cover combination can definitely handle fresh oil and a variety of pattern distances. For lighter volumes or broken down patterns, the new Vibe Orange might be the preferred option.
