The Aggression Pearl CFI coverstock wrapped around the classic Gas Mask core is an unbelievable combination! The Black Widow Pink (BWP) is clean through the heads and picks up nicely in the midlane. When the ball goes through the deck, you will see the ball finishing over the 8 pin spot. When you throw this ball you are going to turn some heads!

Likes: I just called my friend of 20 years and told him he has competition.   This ball is AMAZING.  This ball was billed as a cleaner than the Black Widow Black and Gold, so I laid the Black Widow Pink out the same as the Black and Gold since it would be just a tad bit less.

Wow is what I can say - this ball is cleaner than the Black and Gold but the cover and core combo allow this ball to do something special that the Black and Gold doesn't do which is be the smoothest direction changing Black Widow I have ever seen.   The amount of direction change in the Widow Pink  is unprecedented, however the motion downlane is not flippy - but rather smooth and rolly.  That's just half of the equation - The hitting power this ball has is the other half.  Pins fly with this ball and they stay low for me - which means they will hit more things in their way when they are lower.

Very quickly becoming my trustworthy companion on the lanes.  If you donít have this ball in the bag when you shoe up, your already losing.

Definitely get this ball.  Black Widow Pink = XXXXXXXXXXXX

I am a regional staff member for Columbia 300. I am here to review Hammer's newest bowling ball, the Black Widow Pink. The newest edition to the Black Widow series is beefed up with a Carbon Fiber Infused coverstock for the very first time, this Black Widow is a must for your arsenal. I have used it in a tournament and on a few THS patterns, and I really like what this bowling ball has to offer. It reminds me of the Black Widow Gold with a bit more pop down the lane. Putting the best coverstock Hammer has with the most famous gas mask core couldn't get better...until they made it pretty in pink!!! Get to your local pro shop on 4/9/19, and make this special bowling ball a part of your bowling bag.

Length: 43' & 40'

Volume: 29.67 & 24 ISH

Type (THS, Sport Pattern etc): The Earl Anthony is very flat. THS was a THS.


Likes:  I made an error not using this ball much earlier in qualifying at a recent PBA50. It was the high volume & flat Earl Anthony Pattern and I didn't think a Pearl ball would be able to read the lane to get back around the corner. I was way back so I figured what the heck. Man I wish I had used it much earlier. The ball gave me my best look at the pocket all day and hit hard. On the THS it pushed down lane but makes a very strong move off the spot. Really strong pearl ball. I have about 8 games on it and I have not left a 10 pin yet. ( knock on wood.) :-)

I do not know where to begin when it comes to this ball. As your league and tournament bowler, If you are still looking for a ball to finish summer league, start your new 2019 winter league, or to add a ball to your competitive arsenal for summer tournmaments, look no further than Hammer Black Widow Pink!

With the Aggression Pearl Coverstock and Gas Mask Core, this ball with give you great length on the lane and strong backend (hook) on medium to heavy oil patterns. My Black Widow Pink is drilled pin down (65 x 3 1/2 x 75) and has a controllable but amazing backend that I was looking for in an aggressive ball like this. The pin action this ball creates is amazing and you will never see this ball die-off. It will continue to drive and finish through the pins. This ball is very verstaile when it comes to THS and can be used on Challenge/Sport Patterns with some surface adjustments. Definitely a must have in your bag!
