Hammer definitely got it right with the Scorpion. I often find myself stuck between solids and pearls on league nights, and this ball absolutely fills that gap…with authority!

I opted for a layout 5” pin to PAP, pin down. After throwing a few shots and realizing how strong it was from start to finish, I opted for a LIGHT coat of polish on the FF. This allowed me a little more length up front and offered a little more angle at the break point. Even with a light polish, this ball appears to handle oil like a champ…without creating a nasty over/under reaction.

I wouldn’t consider the Scorpion to be at the top end of my symmetrical hybrid/pearls, but it’s close. A Brunswick Stellar with the same layout has been a great ball down for medium house patterns. When encountering medium-heavy volumes, I would look more towards a Hammer Web Pearl or Web Tour Hybrid.

COMMENTS

The Hammer Scorpion is a great benchmark ball for most league shots.  The Scorpion has a strong mid-lane roll in a strong angular backend motion.  If you are looking for a ball for fall leagues starting up and want to get a amazing mid-performance ball, the Hammer Scorpion is the ball to have.

The Hammer Scorpion review is going to be short and sweet! GO GET THE BALL NOW!!!! Hammer got it PERFECT with this ball and for the price point, you'll get more than what you are expecting! I drilled mine 55 x 4.5 x 30 and it's been the best at all events (league and tournaments). For a dull surface, this ball is clean through the front part of the lane but packs a punch with a strong but controllable backend.
