Hammer Black Widow Assassin Bowling Ball
Select Your Options:
Hammer Black Widow Assassin
It’s the return of a Legend. Black Widows are the most popular series of bowling balls ever produced by Hammer, and now they’re back to bite medium to heavy oil lane conditions.
Black Widow Assassin pairs up two of our most popular components ever - the Widow core and the First Blood coverstock. Sanded in a 1000 grit polished finish, the Black Widow Assassin is one of the most aggressive and continuous hooking balls in the market today.
Combine that signature Widow core motion with today’s coverstocks, and you’ve got one of the TOUGHEST rolling products in the marketplace!
Product Rating: (5.00)
BOWLER INFO: PAP/Track: 5 1/8” x 1” up Axis Rotation: 25 degrees Axis Tilt: 12 degrees Rev Rate: 425 Ball Speed: 15-17 mph LANE CONDITIONS Lane Patterns Used: 41' House Shot, 37’ Kegel Kode Pattern, 39’ Kegel Kode Pattern BALL LAYOUT: 65 x 5 ¼ x 30 COMMENTS The Black Widow is back with a vengeance with the new Assassin. I am one of the few that does not match up well with this core, but with the cover/combo (solid cover) I really like what I see in this ball. This ball for me is the closet to the ORIGINAL Black Widow. The Jet Black Taboo for me was too over/under and when I changed the surface, it was too smooth. The Assassin cover/core combo fits perfectly for me on what I am looking for in my arsenal. It is about 4 boards stronger overall than the Jet Black Taboo, with the same clean motion through the front part of the lane & a strong backend finish that does not quit. I can move in with the shot and the ball is not squirty and cuts through the carrydown without a problem. This is a very versatile ball, just like the original Black Widow. Dislikes: When using it on the drier patterns, it still got through the front part of the lane with ease, but due to my rev rate, it was burning up a little bit. Therefore, I would recommend it for the medium to medium heavier patterns. I think this ball will be a must have ball for those that had the original Black Widow or those that missed out on the original. This ball has a great motion that does not stop rolling in the backend – it really continues through the pin deck! Very versatile ball… PICTURES AND/OR VIDEOS http://i678.photobucket.com/albums/vv150/Plowboy300/30e88c04-5340-44bc-8105-e47661b77a76_zps09eee84d.jpg
