Arctic Vibe


The Radioactive Vibe was the boldest-looking Vibe ever produced, and it rolls incredibly. We are kicking the boldness and performance of the line up a notch with the new Arctic Vibe. This Vibe will stand out for its bright white and purple mix, and its screaming backend. Hammer has not produced many two-color Vibes or hybrid options; the Arctic Vibe was strategically developed to enhance the line and not replace the two previously released Vibes since they are still going strong. HK22 – CT Reactive Max is undoubtedly too much cover for this price point, it causes the Arctic Vibe to outperform anything in its category, and that’s ok because Hammerheads will
love it!

Amazing Ball For The Price.

This ball is SICK! The motion that this ball creates for the price point is unreal. Front 7 out of the box for a 254. The continuation I saw as it went through the pins was crazy. DO NOT SLEEP ON THIS BALL AS A “Mid Performance” ball.

There is no mistaking this ball going down the lane with its white/purple mix. The Arctic Vibe features HK22 – CT Reactive Max which is undoubtedly too much cover for this price point. This has been a great first ball out of my bag in many league conditions. Compared to other Vibes this one fits in nicely between the Radio active and Ocean

Hammer Arctic Vibe

Hammer has released a new addition to the Vibe lineup with the new Arctic Vibe. This time they have gone with a shiny Hybrid ball which has the HK22 added to the CT- Max Hybrid too create a very strong piece in the Mid Performance category. This should not eliminate previous Vibes. This ball picks up much sooner in the mid lane and for me has more overall lane coverage. It goes through the pins pretty nice also. The White with swirled in Purple look pretty cool too. Great value being called "mid performance."

Hammer Arctic Vibe

I’ve always said Hammer has yet to make a Vibe I did not like. The Arctic Vibe released yesterday and my initial impression is that I will very much like this new Vibe as well. The Arctic Vibe features the Vibe symmetrical core wrapped by CT-Max Hybrid cover with the HK-22 base. The color is a truly eye catching snow and purple. In that the new Arctic Vibe is to complement, not replace prior Vibes, I drilled the 1st one with my favorite pin down layout- 60 x 5 x 70. I have a Radioactive Vibe with the same layout for comparison purposes. I put both at 2000 Siaair and have tried them on fresh and leftover THS.

I feel that the Arctic Vibe is a little longer and more mild off the spot compared to the Radioactive Vibe. I had to be a touch further right with the Arctic Vibe to expose it to the friction at the right spot to get it to stand up properly and go through the pins. I would put the Arctic Vibe in between the Radioactive and the Ocean Vibe. I think what I will do is to put the Arctic Vibe at 4000 Siaair and use it for when lanes are burning up and I need to be more on top of the friction. Going down the lane, the Arctic Vibe looks amazing! (As a quick comical aside, my wife groans on occasion when new balls arrive at the house. When she saw the Arctic Vibe, she actually wanted me to get her one as well as it is so cool looking!)

The Arctic Vibe is currently available, see your pro shop for more information.

Lots of cover!

The famous Vibe core does have a cover that is strong at this price point. Bowlers who see the Ocean as too clean and the Radioactive too angular off the pattern will like the Arctic Vibe. Playing around with the surface may open a larger range of motions within limits as with every ball. The colors are eye catching going down the lane.
