Arson High Flare

Ball NPS Score: 100.00
Description: For the Hammer Arson High Flare the research and development team modified the Arson core to create the Arson 2 core.  In doing this they increased the differential which gives the ball more flare potential.  They then covered the ball in their Max-Hook Pearl coverstock.

COMMENTS

The new Arson High Flare featuring a revised version (Higher RG) of the Arson core. With the pearlized cover stock, this ball gets down the lane really clean and unleashes a BIG backend motion through the pin decks. This BIG backend motion from the Arson High Flare compliments the Hammer line up when the lanes break down a little bit and when you need more backend angle down the lane.

Dislikes:  For me, this ball was too over/under for the fresh patterns, but really excels when during the transition & when you need to move in and open up the lane. You can keep moving in on this ball when using it on the drier patterns. Therefore, I would recommend it for the medium to medium lighter patterns.

With the new 3 year warrantee that Hammer provides for this ball, this is the BEST bang for your buck!

I think this ball will be a must have ball for those that looking for a symmetrical ball to open up a lane when the lanes have broken down a bit. This ball has a great motion that does not stop rolling in the backend – it really continues through the pin deck! Very versatile ball… You will be impressed!

COMMENTS
Likes: This ball is AWESOME!   It rolls sooooo well.  I can throw mine down and in and it turns up so well, but if I want to get inside and wheel it - this ball makes the corner and still continues.   The way the Hi Flare drives downlane  in unbeatable.  A great compliment to my Burgundy and Red Legend and the Hammer Line.

Dislikes: Heavier Fresh Patterns.  This ball is better suited for Transition in patterns or THS as you want to take advantage of the Angle that comes with the ball.

Arson High Flare with the Arson 2 Core with higher differential and the Max Hook Pearl coverstock gets through the heads easily and continues really well on the back end.  I can chase the pattern breakdown with all confidence with this symmetric ball making the corner.  Great addition to the Arson line from Hammer!

COMMENTS:
LIKES: Great colors, good length with strong backend. Lots of hook for price.

DISLIKES: NONE!
OVERVIEW:
I REALLY LOVE THE NEW COLORS AND THE MODIFICATION TO THE CORE TO GIVE IT A HIGHER DIFF FROM .045 TO .054 AND WE ALL KNOW WHAT THAT MEANS MORE HOOK DOWN LANE. THIS IS THE FIRST SKID/FLIP BALL RELEASED IN OUR ARSON LINE. THIS BALL I COULD THROW FOR ALL 3 GAMES IN LEAGUE AND JUST MIGRATING AND IT NO PROBLEM RECOVERING ANF GETTING THE CORNERS CONSISTANTLY. I ALSO THREW THIS ON MEDIUM SPORT PATTERN AND WAS EQUALLY IMPRESSED. THIS IS ONE OF THE FEW BALLS THAT I DIDN’T KNOCK OF THE POLISH, IT WAS GREAT OUT OF THE BOX!! FOR BEING A PEARL IT PICKED UP THE MIDLANE WELL WITH PLENTY OF POP LEFT IN THE BALL.

COMMENTS:
LIKES:  THERE ARE A LOT OF LIKES ABOUT THIS BALL. THE COLORS, THE LENGTH IT GIVES ME AND THE NICE BACKEND FLIP.

DISLIKES: NONE
OVERVIEW:
THIS IS A VERY GOOD BALL FOR US LOWER REV PLAYERS. IT NOT ONLY ALLOWS ME TO PLAY UP THE LANE BUT, I CAN ALSO MOVE IN WITH CONFIDENCE THAT IT WILL CONTINUE TO DRIVE THRU THE PINS. THE COLORS MAKE THIS BALL EASIER TO READ FOR ME. WITH THE COMBINATION OF HAMMER TWEAKING THE CORE AND THE NEW COVERSTOCK, THIS IS A GREAT BALL FOR HOUSE SHOTS FOR ME.
