Hammer Black Widow Ghost
« on: May 20, 2020, 12:17:22 PM »

This got dropped in S. korea last week.

I'm rather meh on this. At OOB, the specs for it are slightly under the BWP White Pearl, but is longer and smoother off the spot than the BWP White Pearl. The BWP White Pearl was a much stronger piece off the spot. This also slots well under the BW Pink and BWP Silver. I'd even put it down by the original BW Platinum.

For the US, I'd consider it more of a collector's item ball than one to actually use. Have a look here and see if you agree. Oh, translations here don't really help, so you can only really go off of the specs.

Sorry, but that coverstock reminds me of the AMF Bone XS.  Going to be a tough one to keep clean.  However, I love that Gas Mask Core.  Ball looks to be a good fit for the shorter/lighter patterns.  Could be wrong, just my .02's

Y'all be safe and stay healthy!

From the video it appears to go thru the pins fairly well.

From the video it appears to go thru the pins fairly well.

For some of the shots, it seems to go through the deck rather flat.. as in, not much continuation. The last 2 guys in the video really slowed their ball speed down (especially the last guy) to get the ball to face up at the right time to pure the shot. The 2nd to last guy throws similar to me, so to see that strong of an arm with that rotation deflect off the pocket and nearly miss the 5 pin, leave a flat 10 (yes, the messenger got it, but still) kinda has me on the shelf for this one..

By comparison, here's the S. Korea and Japanese demo of the BWP White Pearl.



Overall, it will come down to coverstock prep, as only the coverstock is different (Aggression Pearl versus Aggression Bite Pearl), so taking some shine off the Ghost should get a similar result. But for me, I'd be better off staying with BWP Platinum White Pearl or BWP Silver..
