Hammer Obsession and Obsession Tour
« on: January 30, 2021, 03:17:56 PM »
Hammer Obsession (WWRD 02/18/2021)
Since the acquisition of the Hammer Brand by Brunswick Bowling, there have been questions asking if Hammer will be releasing equipment using Durability Optimization Technology (D.O.T.). The answer now is yes with the release of the new Obsession and Obsession Tour. Combining both with the Carbon Fiber Infused Inner Core adds durability and will come with a 2 year warranty from the date of purchase. The Hammer Obsession has a new coverstock named the Envy Solid CFI, which is designed for heavy volumes. The new Asymmetric Core gives a 15lb ball the specs of- RG 2.468 DIFF .050 ASY DIFF .013. With a finish of 500/1500 Siaair Micro Pad it all adds up to an aggressive midlane and backend reaction. The colors are Black/Pink/Burgundy with a great looking logo. As the lanes transition, your next move may be into the Hammer Obsession Tour.

The Hammer Obsession Tour shares the same core shape as the Obsession with the difference being the flip block has been removed. This will create less flare, less hook and a more controllable reaction compared to the regular Obsession. This would allow bowlers to stay in the same area of the lane while maintaining a smooth reaction. The core numbers on 15lbs are RG 2.469 DIFF .034 ASY DIFF .013. The biggest number change is the differential being .016 less than the Obsession. Another difference is the coverstock which is an updated version of the Tour cover found on the Web Tour balls, the Tour V2 Solid. This combination is great if a bowler is uncomfortable moving in or for a high rev player looking for control. Personally, I like the Web Tours and I see this being a big brother for more volumes. The color is a solid Burgundy finished at 500/1000 Siaair Micro Pad. The 12 and 13lbers have the same adjusted core in both balls with only the difference being the coverstock.

Keeping them both clean with the preferred Hammer Tough Scrub cleaner to keep both Obsessions in prime shape.

You are correct. I did update that info on other reviews, but I don't get back to this site as often as I'd like.
