The Hammer Web Pearl bowling ball takes the Aggression Pearl coverstock and pairs it with the ever popular Spheroid core. This combination allows the ball to easily get through the front part of the lane and then break to the pocket at the backend when the lanes have a medium amount of oil. 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.
Here is my take on the new Hammer Web Pearl. The new Web Pearl features a Black/Silver Pearl Aggression Pearl cover with the symmetrical Spheroid core. Factory finish is 1000 Abralon with Factory Finish Polish.
My "vitals" are a 405 rev rate with a PAP of 5 9/16 over and 1/8 up. I drilled the Web Pearl with a 40 x 4 ½ x 40 layout. I have used this ball at factory finish. I have tried the new THS and the new Kegel Tungsten pattern.
By its nature, the ball design calls for a smooth ball motion. The Web Pearl offers a very smooth "rolly" motion. However, the pearl in the cover, as expected, gives a little more length but again the motion off of the spot is very smooth and controllable. I see the Web Pearl at its best on medium to lighter volumes or broken down patterns. The Web Pearl will also be in play on shorter sport patterns where control of the back is important. This ball could easily smooth out any over/under on lighter house patterns as well and is easily a good benchmark ball for such an environment.

I got a shorter pin and have been wanting to try a Web ball with a stacked layout as my previous have both kicked cg's. This ball is very controllable with this layout but man does it have hitting power. I was very surprised about the room that I had with this ball. Very pleased with it and it compliments the Web very well!!! I am definitly throwing this in the tournament bag but will also break it out for league. It gives a very nice read between on the pattern with out being jumpy or skiddish. Such a good cover with that core!!!!
I love the new Web Pearl. Ball glides through the front part of the lane with ease and revs up nicely in the midlane with a smooth continuous motion in the back end. Many pearl balls are very sharp off the spot but the Web Pearl does not have a hockey stick kind of shape. You get the ease of getting the ball through the front part of the lane with ease and control with the down lane reaction. The Web Pearl is a great addition to anyone's arsenal
Web Pearl and my Web Tour will hook the same ?9/23/2019 - By legend
The Web Pearl has a FCC rating of Total-24.75, Finish-7.25, Core-8, Cover-9.5 . The Web Tour has a FCC rating of Total-25.5, Finish-9.5, Core-6.5, Cover-9.5. So the Web Tour is a little stronger overall but the Web Pearl goes longer to give you a sharper backend hook.9/25/2019 - By Bowling.Com Staff
Hi I bowl wit 2 fingers but only used one hand My My average is 165 I have the web for Brunswick tenacity and the hammer red pearl will this be a good bar to add to my equipment10/8/2019 - By Ant
The Web Pearl works in medium oil with good length for a decent backend hook. The Tenacity was more for heavier oil and reacted a little more in the midlane. I am not sure which Hammer Red ball you had so I am not sure if that ball was already suited for medium oil like this Web Pearl but just using the Tenacity for your heavier oil ball and then using the Web Pearl later in the night when the lanes are breaking down to medium oil would be a good combo.10/10/2019 - By Bowling.Com Staff
well this ball go good wit my hammer Webb and my hammer rip Pearl it the blue and gold one my hammer Webb is the Purple and black but i really wanna get this ball to used during League as a 3 ball combo but I wanna make sure that it is the right thing to do10/16/2019 - By Ant
Yes, this could pair with the balls you have and it could work as your medium oil ball for when the lanes are not as oily. Your Web and Rip'd Pearl work well in medium and heavier oil and give you some different looks for that but the Web Pearl is going to go longer than the others and works better in medium oil or lighter oil than the others.10/17/2019 - By Bowling.Com Staff
Hammer Web Pearl or Web Tour - which works better on medium to dry lanes. Senior bowler who throws 11 - 12 MPH? Would this be a good ball for a Senior that throws 11-12 MPH around 5-10 board?10/30/2019 - By JH
With you ball speed the Web Pearl would be a better option on medium to lighter oil. It may be a little strong on lighter oil for you but it will work better than the Web Tour.10/31/2019 - By Bowling.Com Staff
