The Hammer Diesel is back! This bowling ball has the same popular Diesel core as the original but this time it is wrapped in Hammer's NBT Hybrid coverstock. The intended reaction of this ball is a strong continuous hook when used on medium to heavy oil conditions. 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 drilled my Diesel by using a 60 x 5 x 65 layout which put the pin under my bridge. This ball was a surprise! Considering it is listed as a mid performace ball, the Diesel gives a lot of hook for that price point! With the trusted Diesel symmetrical core this ball has a strong continuous hook. For me, this ball is about 3-4 boards weaker than my Hammer Rhodman. This ball also has the carbon fiber outer core which carries a 3 year warranty! I will try to load a ball reaction video. If it won't load you can search Average Joe Review on YouTube to see it go down lane.
