The Hammer Web M.B. (Mass Bias) continues the performance success reputation of the Web series of bowling balls from Hammer. The Web M.B. features an elongated rendition of the Spheroid Core design. This core shape gives asymmetry as well as increased ball reaction that is desired by Web and Hammer fans. This upper-mid performance ball has a coverstock base that was previously found on Black Widow bowling balls, the Semtex NE Pearl was updated and ideal on medium lane conditions.
Super Clean and Super Strong Doooown lane!
This is a great compliment to both the Web Tour Hybrid and the Black Widow 2.0. The longer Spheroid core has definitely earned a place in my bag. It actually fits between series AND new releases. Hammer has created a great 1-2 punch with the addition of this ball to the Black Widow 2.0. Super responsive and you hardly see a stop in motion down lane. I feel as if I really can't miss right.
This Web M.B. cover is soooo clean and still is aggressive enough down lane to not miss the spot and recover.
This ball is AMAZING!!!!
First off, pictures do no justice at how great the Web M.B. looks. This ball might be the cleanest release Hammer had made in years, meaning the ball holds it's energy for friction really well. I see this being great for a mix of patterns after some transition has happened. This is also an amazing choice for those house shots that let you open the lane up some. I highly recommend this as a ball to go to when the Web Tour Hybrid isn't storing enough energy.
I threw this ball in league last night for the first time. All I can say is I think it's going to have a permanent spot in my bag. It was smooth through the midland and down lane but was powerful through the pins! It had no issues carrying corner pins. It very hard to find ball reaction like this from an asymmetric bowling ball. Hammer hit the nail on the head with this ball. It also compliments the original Web nicely.
For the web mb I threw this ball game 3 of league and this cover is super clean so gets through the beat up fronts pretty easy and makes that sharp move off the spot you need once the fronts burn up and oil carries down. Game 3 I left 3 blower 9 pins so this ball had no problem getting through the pins. And definitely has a spot in my bag once the fronts get beat up and oil carries down
Here is my take on the new Hammer Web MB. The Hammer Web MB features a new asymmetric version of the original Web core wrapped by a Semtex NE Pearl cover. The Web MB is Dark Blue/Purple in color and factory finish is Factory Compound.
My "vitals" are a 405 rev rate with a PAP of 5 9/16 over and 1/8 up. I drilled the Web MB with a 60 x 5 ¼ x 70 layout and have used on both fresh and leftover THS, a left over medium distance challenge pattern and fresh Kegel Tungsten. I have thrown it at factory finish and 4000 Abralon.
I have been a fan of the previous Web releases, especially the Tour Edition versions. So, when Hammer announced the Web MB, I was intrigued. The Web MB performs EXACTLY as advertised. The core/cover combination allows the ball to be very clean through the front. Personally, I preferred the 4000 Abralon finish just to see the ball pick up a bit earlier. However, the motion in the back was what really got my attention. When the Web MB saw the friction, it simply took off with a very angular and defined motion. That is impressive, especially in an asymmetric core ball. Given this core/cover combination, this ball will be a great choice on medium volumes of oil or when the pattern is breaking down and the bowler is looking for a cleaner yet strong ball. Given how easily the ball gets through the front, this ball will be a great choice for bowlers who have lower speeds or are rev dominant.

Great house shot and transition (game 2) ball! For me, the Web M.B. is very clean through the fronts and has a skid/snap motion off the back of the pattern. I have been able to use this ball on house shots and on sports shots when I need to open my angles. This ball creates a great one-two punch with the either the Black Widow 2.0 or the Web Tour Hybrid.
What's the different between Web MB and Web Pearl?11/4/2020 - By Twohandedbowler
Both have a type of pearl coverstock and both have a polished finish for good length but the weight blocks are different with the Web Pearl having a Symmetric weight block and the Web MB having an Asymmetric weight block which gives increased ball reaction.11/5/2020 - By Bowling.Com Staff
how would this ball be for a high speed, and high rev rate bowler?11/17/2020 - By me
Since both your speed and rev rate are higher, it should still be a decent option for you. It is designed to read later on the lanes and it will have a sharp backend hook in medium oil conditions. This ball would not be a good option for someone with a high ball speed and low rev rate11/19/2020 - By Bowling.Com Staff
