Hammer 4D HPT
« on: June 24, 2004, 09:15:57 AM »
Anyone had any luck with this one?  It was given to me to sell, but I am curious about it b/c it is a Mo core.

I had the yellow pin one--didn't know there was another version.  Never had even the tiniest bit of success with it.  Nothing I tried caused that ball to move or hit even halfway decently.  Numbers said that it would fit my lineup need at the time, but I couldn't find any use for it.  Odd.  I actually wondered if mine was defective.  I gave it to a friend and he couldn't use it either.

A Faball Hammer from around the same time period that was designed for a similar condition that worked really well for me was the Spike HPT.  I got more flare out of that ball than anything before or since--even a Thunderstorm.  Diff was 0.070.  The core design looked very similar to Lane #1's Bomb core.

It is blue with a yellow pin.  I read some reviews on it and just thought I would see what you guys say.  It looks like I am going to pass on it.  I will go weight it out, I think it may be a 16lber.

Da shiv, I had the Spike HPT too.  It was a pretty good ball, I used it at Nats with decent success a couple of years ago.
