Burgundy or Black Hammer ?
on: May 05, 2018, 11:22:02 AM
Hi everyone,
Just wanna ask, what's the difference of the burgundy hammer and the black hammer urethane?
I mean how do they roll differently on the lanes?

Which would be better to use on a medium volume? Should i also consider the black widow urethane?



Thanks so much everyone 😀
Good day for bowling 🎳

different core different covers. burgundy will be more ball overall with the higher diff core and reactathane cover. black hammer doesn't flare as much and will be less ball.
the widow urethane is much stronger than both. But on fresh medium volume why would you choose a urethane option?

Not sure, but maybe because of the tropical season here, fresh medium volume of oil here dries up pretty fast. 😫 that's why i'm trying to identify what urethane ball would fit on those conditions 😁

Thanks for answering my question here by the way, really appreciate it.

You are in luck! 

A few weeks ago same a big hander throwing the Black Widow Urethane.(assym)  Lots of Total hook and smooth off the spot!

Yesterday bowled with a guy with soft speed and lots of hand using both the Burgundy and the Black Widow on a typically wettish wetdry.

The Burgundy moved like a reactive to my eyes or slightly smoother. Drilled pin over ring and kicked out.  He went off and had too slow movement with his Black Widow came back to the burgundy and his reaction speed off the dry picked up dramatically.  279 using this (Part Urethane  Part Reactive coverstock).

May have been carrydown by then...Where the pure Reactives were ready to jump in this often harsh wet dry house..

I have not seen the black Hammer remake personally or much to notice but I felt for the softerhanded there is a place for both the Burgundy and the Black Widow urethane in many softer speed bowlers hands on today's wet dry condtion.
