Hammer wants you to make a statement with the Hammer Statement Solid High Performance Bowling Ball. This ball uses the high traction Aggression Solid CFI coverstock which is finished with a 500/2000 grit sanding. The coverstock offers lots of traction in heavy oil and lots of continuation downlane all the way through the pins. 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.

Color: Purple/Black/White
All colors do vary somewhat from the picture shown
Core: Statement with Flex-Resin Additive, Ceramix Surfacing Process, and Carbon-Fiber Outer Core
Coverstock: Aggression Solid CFI
Reaction: Aggressive Midlane & Backend

COMMENTS

Likes: The Statement Solid rolled very similar to a Rip'd Solid but with a much stronger mid lane movement and very strong continuation through the pins.  The Statement Solid will deliver the goods and make a strong Statement on medium and heavier oil patterns for sure. 

Dislikes: none

COMMENTS

Likes:  I drilled this up on Saturday & was able to use Sunday morning in a friendly competition. The Statement Solid is a Beast. I was able to move way in away from the traffic and really open the lane. The ball reads the mid lane very well and continues thru the pin deck hard. The 10 pin never had a chance, but I did leave a few 9 pins. I like everything about this ball. I think it will really shine on longer or higher volume tournament patterns.

Dislikes:  Nothing yet

Likes:  I used a Pin Down 60 x 5 x 70 and left it factory box dull finish.  The Statement Solid is a Monster Heavy oil ball.  I love the aggressive cover and the ball gets plenty of pick up on the back end.   

Dislikes:  Most of my arsenal is drilled for PBA and Sport pattern conditions.  You need oil to use this ball and it will fit rev dominate or speed dominate type of players.  This is what the Statement Solid is built for.  Heavy oil conditions.

The new Statement core wrapped with the Rip'd Solid Coverstock makes a great combination and new edition to the hammer line.  You will not be disappointed with this ball on medium to heavy oil conditions.  I am able to get a strong mid-lane roll, and this ball hits hard.  Don't wait and get your Statement Solid now!

COMMENTS

Likes: This ball was intriguing to me.  I decided to not do the same layouts I did on my Rip'd solid as this ball is more continuation downlane.   Its a perfect compliment to the Rip'd for me as I can just expect more downlane so changing balls does not make me change lines as the Statement is cleaner and has more pop downlane.

I am amazed for the surface this ball has to see what it offers downlane.

Make your #Statement today!!!

OK now that I figured out how to.log in.

I will just say since this ball is not currently the hot new toy in the hammer family.

I like this ball since maybe April or May.

I found the ball worked better for my style once I had it taken down to the 500 aberlon.
The only other thing I can say is it is pretty much what you would expect as long as you have some oil. But that is to be expected it is after all intended for medium to heavy oil.

I have found though and maybe its because of my style as long as I am feeling physically right even when the lanes dry out unless its like late night cosmic open play conditions.  I find I can on my my cross lane spare attempts use the ball for the entire match just late down around the 3 board and let it hook into the cross lane corner pins. Even if I am having to throw my black widow urethane at everything else, or worse my old 97 or 98 Ebonite clear wearwolf plastic ball as my strike ball. Sometimes as early as game 2.  Overall though I like this ball it has a strong backend. Works well on most of the sport patterns in my PBA experience league.  Its a little more of a crap shoot in my standard house league, but like I said even In my house league I just use it as a spare ball on the cross lane corner pin spare attempts.

Its all good its not how you put the pin fall on the board as long as you get it done right?  Without cheating of course.😎
