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.
Great length with strong hitting motion
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
The Web M.B. is a must have in your bag! Ball is perfect for medium lane conditions when symmetrical solids start being too much. Works well after the Web Tour Hybrid as well as it is clean through the heads with a great continuous motion on the back end. The Web M.B. is great at getting length down lane while still hitting like a truck. Overall, a must have in my bag and almost a guarantee it gets thrown every time.
The Web MB is a ball I found that gets down lane cleanly, while storing energy for that strong backend motion, and exceptional hitting power.I see this ball in play on the medium length/volume oil patterns. Looks good on you normal house shots, too.The MB is a great middle man for the Black Widow 2.0 and the Web Tour Hybrid. Needing to fill a 3 ball tote, this is it!
The Hammer Web MB is a perfect transition ball for when a solid or hybrid is reacting a bit too early. The ball is nice when you need a ball to get through the fronts and midlane and still need a strong backend reaction. I drilled mine 55 x 4 1/2 x 35 and I was able to give myself some versatility with the ball by providing a small hand surface (2000). This is a great tournament ball to have in your bag/arsenal.
Versatility, Shelf Appeal
The Web line has been a proven favorite and the new Web M.B. continues that great performance. I found this gem to be very angular off the friction yet still very controllable. Also, I was impressed how easy it is to keep in front of me while closing the angles down. The Web M.B. goes through the pin deck well, and is perfect when the lanes get a little burnt. So much energy saved up that carves through the pins. A must have for big wheelers and low rev players as well. Something for everyone in this gem. Get yours today!!
smooth arc, controllable motion
medium to dry conditions
This ball is special. It’s got an asymmetric core with a Semtex NE Pearl cover that’s perfect for a skid/flip reaction on medium to dry patterns. This ball gets me out of a lot of trouble as I don’t have a lot of hand to get around it and wheel on a pattern. This ball allows me to square up, keep my target in front of me, and manage the pocket nicely. I usually don’t start out with this ball, but as the lanes break down, this ball is a nice go-to later in the block/evening. This ball is a great complement to the Hammer Web Tour Hybrid and the Brunswick Knock Out.
not flippy, continuous, smooth but strong off the spot, easy length
as long as friction somewhere this will go!
Wow! This one is hard to get out of my hands. I love the motion this ball gives me drilled 50x4.5x30. It has easy length down lane, hard to describe in words what it does for me off the spot, but its not snappy but it comes off the spot hard and has great continuation through the pins. Ive drilled quite a few of these for people with all kinds of styles and rev rates and speed and it has been a big hit for all. This one I never leave home when I go. One of my favorite balls of the last couple years.
hits like a truck; good length
med to dry conditions
The Web M.B. hits hard on the backend. It’s a good shiny pearl that give me great length and continuation through the pins. I love going to this ball after the 2.0. This Web M.B. is the first of the Web series that I loved!
great ball very smooth and predictable
have no cons
for second, and third games
not a big pearl cover kinda ball guy, but after throwing my hammer web m.b. pearl second and third game great ball reaction and the hammer drives through the pins a lot stronger than i thought it would, but under control, i apologize to hammer great ball very happy with the results and it also looks great driving through the pins, I am 67 years young right handed 14 lb. hammer 15 mph. 198 average two times a week bowler, some times three. keep up the great work hammer, ps I have been bowling over 55 years and love the game, thanks to 14 pound balls like the HAMMER, U R right nothing hits like a HAMMER!!!! thanks
love how smooth and predictable, yet it continues going through the pins first time i bowled with the web, fresh house shot, i just wanted to throw the hammer,after two games around the pocket leaving ten pins and seven pins not to mention three 7- 10 pocket hits, third game pounded a nice 268 game, ps i am 67 years young right handed 14 pound hammer 15 mph. twice a week bowler average in the upper 196+ love the hammer and bowling, keep up the good work HAMMER, happy new year.
This layout went fairly long for me when I threw the first few shots. I used it when the lanes were breaking down and the ball performed how I would have expected it to roll. Clean, strong and plenty of hitting power left over. When I decide to drill another one, I would go stronger with the layout. I could always adjust the surface to use the ball when the lanes are more fresh.
A match made in heaven to compliment the already successful Web solid. Switch to this asymmetric ball when you need something to get through the heads clean but have some angularity on the back ends and continuity through the pins. Also, don't be afraid to hit up the cover with a little bit of surface. Another great ball to have in your arsenal.
I absolutely love the Web MB. It is a perfect compliment to my Web Tour Hybrid. The MB is very clean through the front part of the lane and has a smooth but continuous motion through the pins. Comparing it to the Web hybrid, it is a good 3 feet longer and 3-4 boards more on the back end. Great ball for those medium length patterns.
May not like super oily lanes
Drier to Medium/Heavy Depends on volume, Great THS ball
The Hammer Web M.B. is one of the best performing Web balls that I have thrown, to date. Stretching the core to add a little bit of Asymmetry, really added more bang for your buck to this ball. When I roll this ball, I see the normal overall shape that we've seen with the Web series. But, there is a difference. This one grabs the end of the pattern better than it's previous releases. As it should, considering the asymmetry of the core. I find more uses for this one because of its asymmetry. This release allows me to play the fresh with it, up the lane. It also allows me to go to it after my Hammer Black Widow 2.0 has become too early. Playing a deeper line at that point and needing better change of direction down-lane. This Web M.B. is a great selection to add to your bag. Especially if any of the above (reasons it rolls good) apply to you. One more additional thought to add. I didn't have to hit the surface with an abralon pad. Ball was perfect out of the box.Andrew JensenBowlersmart Rockford Cherry/South Beloit ManagerTrack Regional Elite/Coolwick Staff
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
Shelf appeal, angular ball motion
Broken down patterns, Medium volume patterns
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.See your local proshop for more on the Hammer Web MB.
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.
Hammer has taken my favorite core and made a very dynamic reacting bowling ball. It has a true skid/flip reaction with this pearl cover stock. I mean it really dives through the pins when it sees friction. It has an extremely hard hitting shape that gives me some awesome looking strikes. Get it on the right condition and I could see some really big scores with this one.
Clean through the front, continuously smooth downlane
Don't expect a big backend
Late in a block, fried heads
Layout - 65x4.5x35I heard this ball was smooth and clean through the fronts, and it’s something I welcome in my arsenal when lanes are pretty torched or I want to stay right instead of swinging the lane. This ball meets the demands of those conditions. There is no doubt this ball will push cleanly through the front and enable you to stay right a little longer. I would not expect this ball to hook a significant amount, but it will be a smooth continuous motion to the pocket. For such a smooth and clean ball, this hits far stronger than I would have expected. A big win with this ball. This ball is smoother downlane compared to the Melee Jab Blood Red.

What's the different between Web MB and Web Pearl?
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.
how would this ball be for a high speed, and high rev rate bowler?
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 rate
Hello I have order here before great serive, I was looking for abowl I'm a back up bowler and dont have a lot of speed can you recommend a ball for me thanks
This ball is a decent option for someone with a slower ball speed because the ball is designed to react later on the lanes. The key for this ball though is that it has a mass bias so if you are a back up bowler, you need to make sure the ball is set up for the opposite drilling. You may check with your driller on this just to confirm how he would need the Pin, CG, and MB aligned for them to do the backup drilling option and make sure you mention this in the specs box when ordering.
Its this ball good when the oil and the lanes get dry
This ball is rated for medium oil conditions. If you are rev dominant then you may could use this in some medium to heavier oil conditions. If you are speed dominant you may use this in more medium to lighter oil conditions.
Due to the time it takes to produce the Hammer Web M.B. ball it will ship in immediately. We cannot ship this ball outside the United States.
