Witness the power and precision of the Hammer Extreme Envy—where the lane transforms into your playground with a big hook and relentless backend action. While the inaugural Envy conquered heavy oil, the demand for an enhanced backend kick was met with Ebonite's ingenious response: the all-new Extreme Envy. Bridging innovation and performance, the Envy's signature cover embraces the infusion of carbon fiber in the Extreme edition. The result? A heavy oil dynamo that refuses to surrender on the backend. The redesigned core, a variant of the Launcher core with a slightly lower RG, harmonizes seamlessly with the Envy CFI cover, producing a synergy that defies limits. Prepare for the extreme in every sense—extreme satisfaction, extreme results. When an abundance of hook is your need, Extreme Envy stands ready to redefine your game, leaving you exhilarated and empowered every step of the way.

Unbelievable Hook and a Must Have in Your Bag!

Bryan Williams, PBA Member and DV8 Pro Staff

The new Hammer Extreme Envy is a ball with hook unlike many balls I have thrown.  The Hammer Envy Tour was the big ball in my arsenal that allowed me to play on oily lane conditions.  The new Hammer Extreme Envy is another “Big Ball” with a much different look on the lanes. Like the Envy Tour, the Extreme Envy is very smooth, but the addition of the flip disc in the ball gives more angularity off the spot as the ball transitions down lane.  The drill pattern in this ball is 40x4x30, which allows for the ball to be very clean and provide a consistent roll through the heads. If you were a fan of the Hammer Obsession bowling ball line, then this ball will not disappoint.  I strongly encourage bowlers at all bowling levels looking for a big ball for oily lane conditions to consider the this ball.  Check out a new Hammer Extreme Envy  at your local pro shop try out one of the newest and hottest balls on the market today!

Likes: My first impressions of the Hammer Extreme Envy is it's a pretty special ball. I practiced with it against my other two big asymmetric solids, the Brunswick Mindset & the DV8 Hellcat, both pieces I like. In the beginning I found them all to be pretty similar, but when moving my feet left and getting deeper on the lane the Extreme Envy took over. Unlike most big pieces that will burn up and lose hitting power in deep, the Extreme Envy kept coming. Instead off flat ten or 2-8 the Extreme Envy kept running over the 8 pin. It stayed strong where most big solids don't like to hit from. I drilled mine at 65 x 3-1/2 x 25 and hits like a truck. In the arsenal!

Likes:  This ball is very poppy compared to the Envy Solid. It’s amazing g how well it fits between the Envy Solid and Envy Tour. Length and pop and the pins drop. It digs in oil and continues hard. When I threw it for the first time I was amazed how well it stood up but didn’t stop.

Then you add the carbon fiber to the cover it just becomes a beast of a ball.

Truly lives up to the Hammer Tough Brand

Hammer Extreme Envy is much better than the original Envy Solid. This by far the strongest of the envy line with a heavy roll but not as early has the previous. This ball has backend reaction that every bowler looks for. I really loved the Hammer Obsession Solid, and this ball is slightly less. I feel this ball is at its best on medium or long oil patterns. I’ve kept this ball at 1000-grit.

Extreme Envy:  This early rolling oil eater is a Monster on heavy patterns. The Extreme Envy is the most aggressive ball that I have ever used. When I need a ball to roll through the puddle, this is the first out of my bag. The ball is strong and continuous, without losing control of the pocket. I can keep the reaction in front of me on longer patterns without the ball coming off the end of the pattern too sharp. Strong reaction with control is necessary on long patterns and this ball checks all the boxes. The Extreme Envy is for oil.

Extreme is an understatement. Great ball for longer patterns and when you need something stronger to overpower the lane. Definitely a must have for any tournament arsenal.
