Title: Web Tour Edition Hybrid
Post by: BallReviews-scodaddy21 on August 27, 2020, 02:50:03 PM
The Hammer Web Tour Edition Hybrid gives a strong mid-lane reaction with continuous backend by combining the TourV1 Hybrid coverstock with a modified Spheroid TE core. The TourV1 coverstock has been researched, tested, and tweaked to develop the most forgiving coverstock that Hammer has offered to date. The original Spheroid core has been modified to have less flare and more control. This ball pairs best with medium oil conditions.

All colors do vary somewhat from the picture shown
Coverstock: TourV1 Hybrid
Core: Spheroid TE
Finish: 500, 1500 Siaair Micro Pad
Reaction: Strong Midlane w/ Continuous backend
RG: 2.47 (15# ball)
Differential: 0.030 (15# ball)
Hook Potential: High
Length: Early
Recommended Lane Condition: Medium Oil
FCC Rating: Total-25, Finish-9.25, Core-6.5, Cover-9.25

This ball is easily the best benchmark ball out on the market today.  Its the first ball out of my bag and on most nights the only ball out of my bag.  Being on the left side of the lane and having an above average rev rate, more often than not I am forced to play lines where the weaker  balls struggle to make the turn off the end of the pattern and the stronger balls are too much off the pattern.  The Web Tour for me is Exactly what I need to blend out the league patterns I Bowl on without sacrificing pin carry.
If you are looking for that all purpose bowling ball that you can use on pretty much any condition, Do not hesitate to get to your local pro shop and pick up the Web Tour Hybrid and remember "Nothing Hits Like a Hammer"

This ball is very impressive and is a must have for tournament bowlers. Compared to the original Web Tour, this ball is a little more responsive at the break point and not violent. I can see bowlers using this ball on the fresh for blocks, and on patterns with medium to high volume depending on how much surface is on the ball.

Volume:29 mil

Type (THS, Sport Pattern etc):PBA Johnny Petraglia


Likes:The Web Tour Hybrid made me smile right out of the box. I saw the smooth reaction that the original Web Tour gave yet much better. I threw it on 46' Johnny Petraglia pattern mostly during the practice round and was extremely pleased. I hit the cover to give it a few more teeth and loved the way it played when the pattern was broken down toward the end of the practice. I can see this piece being the first ball out of my bag on house shots and for medium length and volume patterns. I can't wait to throw it on 44' Billy Hardwick pattern in a couple weeks in Lebanon, Oregon. Get yours today!!

Dislikes: NONE

This ball goes everywhere with me. The truest ball motion you will ever need and so very predictable. I can use the Web Tour Hybrid for many things. For sure the house shot and on a lot of 37-40' sport patterns. There isn't much this ball can't do. It is a must when wanting to know you have control at the tip of your fingers while on the lanes. I would recommend this ball to anyone in need of a great ball that has great control.

Likes:  I laid this ball out to mirror the Web Pearl I have with the same layout.  My hope was to get a earlier read with the Web Tour Hybrid.  Exactly what I got out of it.  Bravo Hammer for making this game changer.   This ball is very even and hits like a truck sending pins everywhere.  I see about 3 boards more hook out of the ball and have more room in the mids thanks to the cover and finish compared to the pearl.

The Web Tour Hybrid is a very controllable benchmark type ball for medium to lighter conditions.  It is the smoothest rolling ball in my bag and is playable as long as there is some friction present.  This one makes quick work of the wet/dry house shot situation we have in league.  I am able to use more rotation and softer speed than with many of the balls I typically throw.  I will be drilling a second one soon to compliment this one with an earlier breakpoint.  Dependable, controllable, hard hitting describe the Web Tour Hybrid well.  If you are looking for that benchmark ball for use on the friction this is your Hammer.

Everything you loved in the original Web Tour but on steroids! This ball is pure money and saying that it is extremely versatile and predictable wouldn’t be doing it justice. I was able to bowl 8 games across 8 pairs and was able to stay in this ball all day. Minor adjustments only because the ball simply does the heavy lifting for you and keeps you out of trouble. Normally I would say get one of these now, but instead…go order a case!

Web Tour Hybrid

50° x 4.5 x 40°

     The Web Tour Hybrid has quickly become my go-to tournament ball. I drilled this one to be my benchmark ball for, flatter, tournament conditions. My initial impression was, holy cow, this cover is strong. I tested it on the 2016 PBA World Championship pattern and the ball, at the factory surface, gave me more area than I had with others I had thrown. This is such a little confidence boost when bowling on flatter patterns. I like to keep the surface at a fresh 1000/1500 as it helps me read the pattern. I have noticed that as it lane shines, instead of smoothing out, it seems to become much more angular off the friction. I can see the Web Tour Hybrid being in a lot of bowlers' bags. It seems to roll well for many styles and provides the reaction shape that suits many bowlers’ eyes. I think Hammer has found a winning recipe with the Web Tour line and I hope it sticks around for a while.

   This ball has a little more down lane movement than the original Web Tour, compliments to the hybrid coverstock.  I still got that smooth roll you get from the original Web Tour, with a little extra kick on the back.  I decided to do a little less flaring layout on this ball due to the flying outsides on our house pattern and it was still plenty of controlled hook.
