If you loved the original Scandal then you will really love the Hammer Scandal/S. This ball uses the Hybrid CFI coverstock that is finished with a 500/2000 Abralon pad to give this ball the same strong mid-lane motion as the original but with more reaction on the backend. 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.

Color: Blue/Blue Pearl/Red Pearl
Core: Scandal with Flex-Resin Additive, Ceramix Surfacing Process, and Carbon-Fiber Outer Core
Coverstock: Semtex Hybrid CFI
Reaction: Aggressive Mid-lane w/ Continuous Backend
Finish: 500/2000 Abralon
RG: 2.48 (15# ball)
Differential: 0.054 (15# ball)
Recommended Lane Condition: Medium-Heavy Oil
FCC Rating: Total- 27.5, Finish- 9, Core- 8.75, Cover- 9.75

Likes: The Scandal line for me has been okay - Nothing super powerful - but definitely good.  The Scandal/s has the same weightblock as the previous 2, but this is wrapped with a Semtex Hybrid cover.  My previous 2 (Scandal and the Pearl) have been relatively close to each in layout.  So this one I didn't want to stray to far away from.  Even though the layout is a hair different, I see a BIG difference in this balls performance from the previous Scandals.   The Scandal/s is much more even and blendable throughout the lane - Meaning that I was able to use it down and in and deep inside and the ball maintained the same shape pretty much and still maintained energy and drive through the pins.  I noticed that in my video of the ball, I hardly left any flat and ringing 10's.  This is a result of the ball maintaining energy all the way.   I still kept the pins low but didn't ever see the ball tip out and quit.  Definitely going in the bag for league season!!!  Get you one of these!
