The Hammer Web Tour Edition Hybrid gives a strong mid-lane reaction with continuous backend by combining the TourV1 Hybrid coverstock with a modified Spheroid TE core. The TourV1 coverstock has been researched, tested, and tweaked to develop the most forgiving coverstock that Hammer has offered to date. The original Spheroid core has been modified to have less flare and more control. This ball pairs best with medium oil conditions.
This ball is easily the best benchmark ball out on the market today. Its the first ball out of my bag and on most nights the only ball out of my bag. Being on the left side of the lane and having an above average rev rate, more often than not I am forced to play lines where the weaker balls struggle to make the turn off the end of the pattern and the stronger balls are too much off the pattern. The Web Tour for me is Exactly what I need to blend out the league patterns I Bowl on without sacrificing pin carry.
If you are looking for that all purpose bowling ball that you can use on pretty much any condition, Do not hesitate to get to your local pro shop and pick up the Web Tour Hybrid and remember "Nothing Hits Like a Hammer"
I was able to compare the original Hammer Web Tour & the new Web Tour Hybrid side by side and BoB did a great job. They have created virtually the same shape with the hybrid being a slight bit longer down the lane, thus a few boards right with my feet. It still has that very smooth rounded shape with good continuation thru the pins. Should be one of the first balls out on fresh patterns to control the pocket. Really nice add to the Hammer line.
Here is my take on the new Web Tour Hybrid by Hammer. The Web Tour Hybrid features the symmetrical Spheroid T/E core wrapped by a Black/Blue Tour v1 Hybrid cover. Box surface is 1500 Siaair.
My "vitals" are a 405 rev rate with a PAP of 5 9/16 over and 1/8 up. I have drilled a Web Tour Hybridg with a 50 x 5 ¾ x 40 layout. I have thrown this ball at box surface on fresh PBA Aulby pattern, Kegel Tungsten and THS.
The original Web Tour was a favorite of mine for shorter sport patterns. I already drilled 2 Radical Bonuses recently with stronger layouts (similar low RG/low diff core but in a solid) so I was planning on using a weaker layout for this release as a "go to" ball after using the Bonuses. However, I found that the Web Tour Hybrid was able to handle easily the higher volume/medium distance of the fresh PBA Aulby pattern on its own as long as angles were kept closed. Notwithstanding the core/cover combination, the Web Tour Hybrid plenty of predictable motion and continuation. I saw similar results on the Kegel Tungsten which is also a 39 foot pattern as well as the THS. As each of the patterns began to break down, again notwithstanding the core/cover combination as well as the weaker layout, I was able to move a little left and circle the Web Tour Hybrid. That is what I think separates the Web Tour Hybrid from the original Web Tour. The original Web Tour was fantastic on fresh short patterns but I found that ball to labor a bit when I had to go more left to right. I did not see that issue with the Web Tour Hybrid. Thus, I see this ball being in play on many different volumes, depending on surface preparation in the medium to shorter pattern distance range. This will be a great tournament ball for those who compete on more demanding patterns where predictability and control of the midlane is key.
