Hammer is bringing the Cherry Vibe back to their ball line. Just like the original this ball will provide length with angularity. This ball is value priced and ready to roll. This bowling ball is Carbon Fiber Infused! Carbon fiber is one of the toughest materials on earth. Hammer decided to add this material to the inner core of this ball for added strength and durability allowing them to offer an incredible 3 year warranty.
Today's the day!!! The Hammer Cherry Vibe is in your local pro shops today. I have thrown it on various house shots, and I will give my review. I drilled this pin up to get it down the lane to allow it to be angular as designed, and the results...love it!!! It is a steal for the price point, and it is something you must invest in. Please don't miss out like I did on the original! #teamebi #cherryvibe
The Cherry Vibe features the ever popular and versatile Vibe Core wrapped around with the CT Reactive cover. The box finish for the ball is 2000 Abralon with Factory Finish polish. The color is a bright cherry pearl.
I am on Hammer staff and my vitals are a 405 rev rate with a PAP of 5 9/16 over and 1/8 up. I have drilled three new Cherry Vibes- 45 x 5 ¼ x 70 with a weight hole 4 inches over and 2 ½ down, 55 x 6 x 40 without a weight hole and 60 x 5 ½ x 30 with a weight hole on the PAP. I have tried these balls on various THS and sport patterns. I have tried box surface, 2000 Abralon and 1000 Abralon with each of these new Cherry Vibes.
By comparison, I have an original Cherry Vibe with the 55 x 6 x 40 layout and the ball motion between the original and the remake is very similar- the remake may be slightly stronger but the overall angular motion is ever present.
In comparing the remake Cherry Vibe to the remake Blue Vibe, I drilled one of each with the same 45 x 5 ¼ x 70 layout, a personal favorite layout for a Vibe core. As expected, the Cherry Vibe showed greater length and a sharper motion off of the spot compared to the Blue Vibe. This trend was consistent across the various patterns I have tried both Vibes on. Thus, the Cherry Vibe would be best suited for the medium to lighter volume patterns or the broken down patterns. The Cherry Vibe, when they were originally made, were usually the best "go to" ball in my bag for later parts of a block. The remake shows the exact same characteristic. As with all Vibe core balls, they will suit a wide variety of bowlers, styles and rev rates. Because of the versatility of the Vibe core as well, many different shapes of ball motion can be achieved and thus, the Vibe should be suitable on a variety of pattern distances!!! With the new Blue Vibe, Hammer has an amazing "one/two" combination!
