Likes:  You want a ball that continues Downlane, can handle oil but not be sensitive for medium lanes, look good to the eye and have a ton of hitting power and hitting potential?

Hammer has you covered and then some. The hammer Envy Tour Pearl is that ball x 10. The HK22 pearl cover is strong but in the right places and not sensitive or floppy. It sits and and drives and I didn’t see any deflections. The pins stay low and get out of the balls way!

The Envy Tour Pearl is another great ball from Hammer in the Envy line. The Envy Pearl with the HK22 shell is super clean through the heads and very responsive down lane. This ball reminds me a lot of the gold Obsession Tour but with more responsiveness down lane. This ball continues to hook through the pins and will be good on most conditions. Now you even will get a free hoodie when you buy one.

Hammer Envy Tour Pearl is a wow!! This ball has been amazing on house and sport patterns. I haven’t found a pattern this ball does not work on, this ball is amazing! Definitely a step up from the original envy tour solid and a great compliment for when the solid starts to lose energy, this ball will be the perfect replacement with a strong but predictable backend motions.

Envy Tour Pearl:  This exciting addition to the Envy line has me giddy. This is the answer to the front chop and carry down that many players experience when the tournament patterns start to move left. The Envy Tour Pearl is clean enough to get through the fronts, and still enough ball to continue through the pins. This ball is a great option after the Envy Tour has started to hook to early to be effective through the pins.

Very similar to the envy tour but for me it gets down the lane a bit farther and turns the corner a little sharper. Excellent choice when transitioning from the envy tour after a few games.

[Hammer Envy Tour Pearl is a great option for lanes that have friction and need a ball to push to the breakpoint. The 2.469 Rg and .034 Diff on this ball makes it responsive off the dry part of the lane and makes a strong, controlled reaction of the end of the pattern. It is an ideal adjustment from the solid Envy line, or any solid ball that loses it reaction downlane later in the block. This ball will push farther and be controlled off the pattern to make adjusting to transition easier. This ball looks great in league, as it holds pocket when missed in the oil and has a strong motion when missed out. Tournament bag as well as you will need this motion as the lanes transition.

Layout: Pin down

The original Envy Tour was an incredible alternative to using urethane for raw control if you aren’t comfortable with the likes of a Purple Hammer. I went pin down with the Envy Tour to take advantage of the control the Envy Tour had, but leverage the cleanliness of the cover in this Pearl to give me predictable motion without excessive backend. This ball gave me a look I’ve not seen in other equipment by trusting being closer to the dry without it hooking at my feet. The combination of both Envy Tours is a great one-two punch.
