Title: Statement Hybrid
Post by: BallReviews-scodaddy21 on July 30, 2019, 09:48:04 AM
Hammer continues to make a statement, this time with the Hammer Statement Hybrid High Performance Bowling Ball. This ball uses the Aggression Hybrid CFI coverstock which is finished with a 500/1000 grit sanding and then polished. The coverstock produces more skid through the front part of the lane compared to the Solid version but offers more midlane traction than the Pearl version. The polish used to finish the ball creates a strong direction change down the lane, but with plenty of friction to combat heavier oil. The Statement core in this ball has a very low RG with a high differential as well as a strong asymmetric core. This core design helps the ball rev up in heavy oil conditions. The design of this core places the majority of the mass at the bottom of the core which assists in storing energy. 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.

PAP - 5 5/16 x 5/8 up

I absolutely loved the Statement Pearl and the Statement was a little too early for my liking... This is where the Hybrid fits perfectly. For me, the Hybrid reads a little earlier than my Statement Pearl and still offers a strong / big backend motion that does not quit. I took mine to 3000 abralon and absolutely love the strong motion in the mid-lane yet still continues through the pin decks. This will replace my Statement Solid which rolled too early for the patterns I have around my area (not enough oil). The Statement Hybrid will be an amazing fit for those looking for a strong asymmetrical ball that does not stop rolling in the backends - Very versatile ball.

This is the perfect ball for the heavier medium to heavier lane patterns that you may face!

COMMENTS

Likes:  It's Lightning & Thunder.   Literally the best of both worlds.  The length and pop of the pearl with the roll and predictability of the solid.   The roll on this hybrid is truly amazing and the power that the ball has on impact at the pins is very hard hitting and explosive.   I laid my hybrid out basically the same as my pearl and solid.  The result even with the same layout is the most usable Statement we have.  This is the benchmark in the Statement series.    The first ball out of the bag and very predictable.  A must have for the upcoming season.

The Statement Hybrid is a great fit between the Statement Solid and Statement Pearl.  The Aggression CFI Hybrid coverstock helps this ball pick up the mid-lane earlier than the Pearl and finishes through the pocket.  Bowlers will be very happy with the versatility of this ball.
