Synactive Pro-Purple

The Sledge Hammer Pro-Purple uses Faball’s latest development in cover materiel, Syntactive Urethane and Hammer Particle Technology.  HPT is the process of adding Micro-Size particles of diverse sizes, densities and shapes into the cover material, which determines the ball’s Cover Power Rating or CPR.  The CPR is matched with the core to achieve the ball’s designated performance.

In the Sledge Hammer Pro-Purple Syntactive, the design is for more ball surface contact on today’s newer lane oils and conditions.  The large 1,500cc Boomer Core is matched with the correct CPR cover to produce a Medium-High RG and Medium Differential.  The result is that the ball will begin its hook process further down the lane and provide stability and traction at the backend of the lane.

The specifications are: Syntactive Hammer HPT Cover in Pro-Purple; 1,500cc Boomer Core with Dynamic Balance Control Stabilizer; Bright Red Pin and Syntactive finger logo; Fluorescent Green Sledge Hammer and Hammer side logos; Factory Matte Finish may be sanded for increased traction.  Hook Potential: 19 Dull/17 Polished; Length: 8 Dull/12 Polished; Backend: 14 Dull/12 Polished; RG: Medium to High; Differential: Medium; Coefficient of Friction: High; Flare Potential: 3” to 8”; Hardness: 75-79 D-Durometer Scale. Weights:13-16 lbs.

Good mellow proactive ball, but the core just isn't enough.  

Best bet: wait until hammer puts a Syntactive Cover around their Violet Offset Hammer core.  That one will be a sure thing.

It also doesn't seem to matter how the ball is drilled...unless the outsides are considerably dry, you will NOT get any type of movement worth talking about from this ball.  The Jackhammer core is jsut not enough to make it a good match for the Syn Sledge.  I suppose if it were shined, it might make a good medium-dry ball, but I have yet to see anyone try it.  Wish I had more good to say about this ball, but I just don't.

The only place you'll go and see more "10"'s is probably at the bank. This ball has got to be the "Flatty" Divac of all balls. The company should change it's name to "FLATBALL" they hit so weak. It I wanted a purse to throw I'd borrow one of my wife's Gucci's or Coach's, hell they cost about the same as this thing. This ball, if used on a farm in the field, would assist in the growth of whatever the crop is......but it won't help you strike. This ball is the "Flatess" Knight and the Pips of bowling. Hits like the old Black Hammer would today.......not 15 years ago. So brace yourself for the jeers and heckling from your teammates and the chants of "Flatty, flatty, flatty !!!" in the background.

I am modifying my review of the Sytactive! This ball had earned its place in my bowling bag!

After purchasing it through a friend, I had the ball extremely polished. Makes best use on burnt lanes.Any sign of head oil and the 10's start coming out. I am still trying to tweak it to make the best out of the ball I can. I will keep you posted

A lot of poeple reall hate this ball but I don't this was really the first good ball that I got and I love it. Everyone say's that this ball is a bad product. When I got this ball my av was areould 150 and I shot a 256 with it an about 30 or more 200+ games with.

A friend of mine got one like whe I did 2 to 2 1/2 yars ago and with in the first week with it he shot a 300 with it. I like tis bal because mine is set up to go long and then hit in the backend.

I would rate this ball a 8 out of 10 it really is not such a bad ball like everyone says it is.
