If it's solid blue, why not the Blue Blood? Could be marketed as having a very elite pedigree. My thoughts anyway. . .

Interesting.. anything about this ball on the USBC approved list? That may be a telling factor on usability.

Also, there may be an overseas ball that Hammer put out with those numbers. I can't remember if Legend-Star may have something, in case you want a peek at how it will perform.

we had USBC  hold the approval to list online until we launch the ball on wednesday to help keep it a secret.

Sneaky!

Though I have to wonder if this is a Hammer ball at all.

The way that the pin looks in that picture, and to be honest, that colour of blue, it is oddly reminiscent of a Columbia Yellow Dot crossed with a Big Blue.

Seems really similar to vibe core numbers. Could be wrong. Big Blue Vibe? that'd be cool.

If CBPS pays hammer to make it I doubt they would put a columbia label on it. No doubt it is pretty. Cant wait to see the name and logo.

Not sure if i understand hammers marketing motive. Everyone is paying top dollar for the new jet black vibe on ebay and im sure these will sell out very quickly too.  If you know people are willing to buy these balls like crazy why wouldnt you mass produce them. But then you mass produce a ball like the nail titanium that nobody wants. Just a little confused.

The Hammer Vibe XR is a great idea for a release!. I also can't wait to see what replaces the vibe series.

Here it is..almost sold out.. its been available only for 1 hour and 29 mins so far
http://bowlersmart.com/exclusive-hammer-vibe-xr


Hammer Vibe XR

The new Hammer Vibe XR features the proven First Blood cover. We then removed the pearl additive to make it a solid version of the NBT cover for even more overall hook. We call it NBT XR. We put the surface at 500, 500, 1000, 2000 and polished it for more down lane reaction, the most EVER provided in a a Vibe release.

We used the Vibe core shape but increased the density to lower the diffirential and raise the rg. These numbers allow the ball to store energy and work well with the NBT XR cover.


Finally, we chose a vibrant blue as our color. A vibrant, bright, yet rich eye catching color that shows it is from a rich bloodline of quality. With only a limited number available, we felt it was best that Vibe XR stood out in a crowd yet showed its class making it suitable for the Private Stock.


A must have for all SERIOUS hardcore Hammer fans.
The new XR Private Stock line of bowling equipment has extra attention given to all of the details. Every one is specially numbered (001 through 333) and comes with a Special Oil Free Hammer Towel. A little extra time is given to these making them the Xtra Rare Private Stock.

Remember, only 333 have been made and when they are gone, they are gone forever.

Color: Electric Blue
Core: Symmetrical
Coverstock: NBT-XR SOLID
Factory Finish: 500, 500, 1000, 2000 Polish
Reaction: Length With Strong Backend
Radius of Gyration (RG):2.510
Differential (Diff): 0.0390
** RG and Diff are based off of 15 lb. balls
Recommended Lane Condition: Medium

No ability to order TW or pin distance on-line...most would pass I'd think.  $130/ea is a bit steep IMO.  Vibes can be still had and other pieces that have the same ball motion and total hook for $90 - $95.
