Hammer Hazmat Solid (WWRD 7/11/2024)
« on: June 29, 2024, 06:00:21 PM »

Hammer Hazmat Solid       @15lbs 2.479 .055
WWRD 07/11/2024    (12-16 lbs)   Alternate Core 12-13 lbs   Volume- Medium to Heavy      Core- Hazmat      Coverstock- Semtex Solid
A big sym has returned to the Hammer line! The Hazmat Solid is the heavy oil counterpart to the Hazmat (11/16/2023) which has the HK22 base and the Semtex Hybrid additive package. However, the solid does not have HK22 and that means an earlier traction in the mid-lane and backend. In the FTF review, the original Hazmat was a bit too strong for what I see in my area. Even though it is shiny and has the HK22 base to help it clear the fronts, when the ball encountered friction it wanted to go and rolled forward for me. I needed either more volume or more oil at the end of the pattern to use efficiently or add rotation and tilt to my release. Higher speed bowlers really enjoyed to the original and it sits in my tournament bag waiting for its moment. Now with the solid, that motion has been bumped up quite a bit. More volume is needed, although higher speed bowlers with a lower rev rate ration will really enjoy this ball. It is stronger than Hammer’s last solid sym, the Hammer Dark Web (7/8/22) with a lower RG and higher diff. Surface changes have been made and this can be a phenomenal piece when all the parts get dialed in for each bowlers’ style and environment. It should fit under the Hammer Black Widow 3.0 and above the Scorpion Low Flare.

The Hazmat Solid is just as advertised: A big symmetric ball. I have never had a big symmetric ball, and I am loving this one. In my arsenal, the closest ball to compare it too is the Black Window 3.0. Both balls start to pick up at the same spot down lane, but the Black Window 3.0 is much more violent off the spot. The Hazmat Solid is much smoother and more continuous. The Hazmat Solid gives me a great look when I need more control.
