Black Widow Gold
on: July 27, 2017, 05:08:03 PM
Ball NPS Score: Not Available
The Hammer Black Widow bowling balls keep rolling out and taking over the lanes. The Hammer Black Widow Gold takes Hammer's most angular coverstock, the Semtex Pearl, and pairs it with their most angular core, the Gas Mask, to create a ball that goes long and then offers a ton of backend motion when facing medium to heavy oil. This bowling ball is Carbon Fiber Infused! Carbon fiber is one of the toughest materials on earth. Hammer decided to add this material to the inner core of this ball for added strength and durability allowing them to offer an incredible 3 year warranty.

I have thrown the Black Widow Gold, Hammer's newest UMP bowling ball. Being a Black Widow fan, this one was a must. I have thrown it on a few THS, and a pattern. My rating is synonymous with the color, golden! I loved traditionally how smooth Widows in general was, but to see the extra backend motion that was put into this one, it will be very appealing to the masses. Please don't get stung and miss out on this Black Widow, it is golden and with more pop than ever. Available 8/8/17...
