My go to ball when oil breaks down
Our house has wooden lanes and tends to have at most medium oil. As a right hander I stand at 12 and roll across 7 for a down and in movement. I can use the Pearl either from the start of a newly dressed lane bowling farther outside with little to no oil and then work in as the oil breaks down, or start with an asymmetrical solid (Statement solid or Columbia Baller) and then swap to the Pearl after a game or so. I picked up a second one after EBI was sold to have another available when this wears down.

Hammer Web Pearl
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.
See your local proshop for more information about the new Web Pearl by Hammer!

Major League Hitta
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!!!!

Love the Web Pearl!
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
