Likes:  The Ruthless will get down the lane and read the mid lane with a very strong, defined roll through the pin deck.  I am able to keep in more in front of me than having to send it right and see the big boom.  This new piece will be very effective on medium to heavier oil patterns and lengths.  I like to hit the cover lightly to keep it consistent for each use.  A quick hit with 500 works well to give me the look I want to see with the Ruthless.

Likes: FINALLY - We have a Solid Flawless.  At least that's what I thought!  This ball is the Flawless on steroids.  I was really eager to try the Ruthless.  I loved the Flawless and wanted to see a stronger version - Thats what this is and sooo much more.  I found myself about 6-7 boards left of the Flawless and I really love seeing the motion downlane.   STRONG is the word of the day here!!!

Likes: Hello Hammer fans and the bowling community. It's really smooth on the fronts, strong mid lane, and predictable back end. I drilled my to flare a little bit more up front. My layout was 4 1/4 x 35 VAL. I used Abralon pad with Vise Slip Agent since I'm Rev dominant type of player. Also the Blue, Dark Blue, and White color scheme is really eye attracting! It rolled well on our THS 42 feet and I bowled on the Don Johnson pattern. I was quite impressed on the versatility of this ball. Great price point for our Hammer customers. This ball can be used on a wide variety of lane conditions.

Likes: So far I really like what I see from the new Hammer Ruthless. It picks up in the mid lane and has a strong overall hook without being jumpy. For me that means when I make a mistake there is a better chance of leaving a makeable spare instead of some crazy split. I've only used it on a house shot so far, but I can see using this on sports shots when I want to ball down from the Ebonite Futura or Columbia 300 Chaos.
