This ball reminds me off a pissed off Columbia Pearl Beast.  It has so much power for a pearl and so much control.  This is one of the best HAMMERS to come out for guys wanting to move in and loop the lane.  This ball allows you to go away from the pocket and get it back with some fierce power.  It has all the makings of the $200 pearl balls without the price.  This is a ball that I will drill more than one up form myself.  I see at least 2-3 of these in my bag.  For a retail price of around $140 everyone should try one of these bad boys.

I got a Nasty Nail Pearl for a house where I bowl that keeps their lanes pretty dry.  What a winner Faball has with this Nail!  It is drilled over the label with the pin by the ring finger.  I used it on freshly oiled lanes and thru ot straight up five with some very hard mix and hit.  I used it on lanes yesterday that had not been oiled since the day before and swung it over 15 out to five with very good mix and hit!  I think this may be the hardest hitting Hammer of all!! IT just blows the pins off of the deck.With the two Spikes and this ball you can cover a lot of conditions! Thanks Hammer!

Drilled my Nasty Nail Pearl with a 4x2 drill pattern, extra hole on PAP. I will certainly say that this ball is very clean in the fronts with a strong flip on the backend.  I have tried this ball on very dry lanes as well as wet/dry shots, both with a good deal of success. Pin carry is also a big plus with this ball. This ball by far will outhook the original nails. Excellent ball for the money.

I have had this ball for around 4 years.  Not sure about drilling.  
Me-Stroker with med speed and high revs.
Ball-15 lb.-polished
I have thrown this ball in the flood...the dry...and everywhere in between.  For a long time it was the ONLY ball I used.  I am not a high average bowler-175 or so, but this ball will move in oil, on the dry, whatever.  It may be the drilling, but I can use this ball anytime.  In the oil I line up around 15 and roll 10 to 5 with a screaming backend.  In the dry I line up 20 or a little deeper and throw 15 to about 5 with the same results.  Very few 10's and the ball hits like a truck.  Carries everything...light...high...whatever.  The only problem I ever have with this ball is the idiot rolling it.  Even with wannabebowler rolling it, it is very forgiving.

I have the Nasty Nail Pearl Black. When I first got this ball I could not stand the ball, I actually hated it, but I was a horrible bowler at the time, so as most of you know we have a tendency to blame it on the ball when you are first starting out. I am in love with this ball, It works on Med,Med to Heavy, and dry. In Med to Heavy oil, I have had success tossing the ball instead of rolling it because as soon as the ball hits the surface it is ready to break to the pocket. In med oil, I put the ball down early to take advantage of the head oil and I will come back from a long way and crush the pocket. I am looking for Nasty Nail Jade Pearl NIB.
