(Overseas): Anybody want another Black Widow??
« on: April 06, 2019, 12:56:50 AM »
Yes? Good, go buy a ticket to Japan and get it yourself!!  ;D

Seriously, if you do, bring this one back for me as well. From a PSO over there, here now comes the Black Widow White Pearl:

Apparently, the coverstock is a souped up pearl version of the Web (Web Agression Edition) with CFI. They have it as being above the BW Pink that is being dropped here next week, which is above the BW Platinum. I'd assume it would be on par with the BW Black/Gold, but that being a hybrid, I wouldn't count on it.

Anywho, enjoy.

No, I donít understand why Hammer doesnít bring back the Arson core in weights 14 to 16 pounds. Hammer uses the Arson/Sauce core for 13 pounds and lower. Per Mitch Beasley, this is done because Hammer has found the Arson core to have a more consistent roll in the lower weights. I have found it to have a consistent roll in the higher weights as well. Loved the Arson Low flare.

Because they've moved on from it? Out of Hammer's current lineup, anything under 13 pounds is using current core/cover combinations. Vibes start at 10lbs and are using the CT/Vibe core/cover combo. BWs are using Gas Mask. Statement and Rip'D are using the Aggression core, and some of those start at 12lbs. So to say that they are using the Arson/Sauce combo for 13 and under isn't right, as nothing they have out there is currently doing that.

In fact, last time I saw any of those was with the ALF Solid, which came out at least 4 years ago.

If you go to the hammer website and click on any resin ball, you will see see two cores pictured on the right side of the page. The first is 14 to 16 pound core (i.e. Gas Mask) and the second is the 10 - 13 pound core which is the arson core for all resin offerings.
