The Hammer Black Widow bowling balls keep rolling out and dominating the lanes. The Hammer Black Widow Black/Gold takes the Aggression Hybrid coverstock, and pairs it with their most angular core, the Gas Mask, to create a ball that goes long and then offers a strong backend motion when facing medium to heavy oil. 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.

Likes: This core is obviously one of the most iconic cores in bowling.   Hammer decided to pair it with the cover from the Rip'd.   The result has been AWESOME!
If you liked the Black Widow Dark Legend but wanted a cleaner sharper pearl version - THIS is your ball.  I love how it rolls like a true Widow but so strong and defined down lane.  There isn't any quit in this ball.  Its really good and keeps the pins low with that awesome RG resulting in more pin action.  I enjoy seeing this ball's motion and you won't be disappointed in the results.
