Best and worst hammer balls ever thrown?
« on: April 01, 2012, 03:42:39 PM »
title says it all post the best and worst hammer balls you have thrown
Best: its pretty close between the original black widow the raw acid or the sauce
Worst:Probably the black widow nasty wasn't really impressed it didnt hook much or really recover from the outside for me and the pin carry was terrible hit like a pillow.

 For me the best hammer i have thrown it the arson so smooth yet still very strong. The worst would be the taboo blue silver it was so over under after three weeks of trying to make it work i gave it to one of the youth bowler on our travel league.

The worst for me was the Taboo.....only worked on dry lanes, soon as it saw any oil it would not do a thing. 
 
The best is a hard one to choose.  I'd have to say the Blade Pearl or Onyx Vibe.  
 
The ball that gets used the most now......the new Blue urethane.  Awesome ball!  


2011-2012- avg 185
Current arsenal....Faball  Burgandy Hammer, Hammer Blue urethane / Cherry Vibe/ Onyx Vibe, Black Widow Bite, Track 300T/ 718A, Storm 2 Furious / Tropical and Lightning Storms,  Maxim spare ball.

The best for me is a toss up between the Road Hawg and the Hawg Wild, man those were a killer combonation for me.  I'd have to give the nod to the Road Hawg, quite possibly my favorite ball of all time.

 

The worst for me was without a doubt the Black Widow Pearl,  several drilling changes, surface adjustments, and nothing to show for it but complete misery.

Here is my 2 cents worth-

Worst would have to be the burgandy Urethane

Best is the original Black Widow.

I didn't care for any of the other Widows, but I have had 5 originals, GREAT ball

Faball:  hard to decide between the Blue and the Pink.  Or even my Norm Duke Hammer for that matter!
 
Hammer:  best was the Cherry Vibe, worst was the Black Widow Venom.

My favorite is the Black Pure Hammer. Totally underrated piece - it still is a pillar in my arsenal for medium to dry conditions. Really love it. A bit strong for its purpose, but a VERY good and versatile piece that will surely hard to be replaced.

I still would love to get my hands on a black or burgundy Pure Hammer.
