Scorpion Strike

Stronger and more angular!

The Scorpion Strike is the most skid-flip reaction Hammer has introduced in this line, thanks to HK22-Semtex Pearl and the LED 3.0 core. The Scorpion Strike complements the line by fitting just below the strong skid-flip asymmetric balls and the Hazmat, but it is stronger and more angular than the Vibes. The Scorpion Strike has a striking appearance and will quickly become a Hammer fan favorite.

Hammer Scorpion Strike

I was able to recently punch the new Hammer Scorpion Strike. The Scorpion Strike features the same symmetrical LED 3.0 core found in the Hammer Scorpion Sting wrapped by the HK-22 Semtex Pearl covered colored in Black/Magenta/Indigo. Box finish is factory compound. I've drilled 2- one has a 40 x 4 1/4 x 30 layout.. I drilled a 2nd one not shown here with my favorite pin down layout- 60 x 5 x 70. They were tried on fresh THS both at box surface.

The Scorpion Strike is designed to be a more angular piece of equipment in the Hammer mid performance line of equipment. The difference between the original Scorpion Sting and the new Scorpion Strike is the HK-22 base added to the Semtex Pearl cover in the Scorpion Strike. Compared to the original Scorpion Sting, there is a noticeable difference in overall motion as I recall. Compared to the Scorpion Low Flare, the difference in motion is very noticeable. The Scorpion Low Flare definitely shows an earlier and smoother motion. When I threw the Scorpion Strike on the same line, the Strike definitely went longer and showed a stronger motion off spot. A slight move right with feet and eyes and boy did the Scorpion Strike go through the pins nicely. I was very impressed. I believe that the Scorpion Strike will excel on medium volume patterns or as a go to ball when lanes go through transition.

I will say this- Hammer has an amazing line up in symmetrical core pieces. For fresh and/or higher volumes of oil, there is the Hazmat Solid. For a very controlled motion, there is the Scorpion Low Flare. For medium volumes of oil and/or transition when the fronts go and a quicker response ball is required, this Scorpion Strike looks awfully good thus far. For light volume patterns and/or burn, there is the Arctic Vibe. This line up has a wonderful progression of motions and will be easy for the bowler to make decisions knowing again how these 4 symmetrical core pieces interrelate with each other.
The Scorpion Strike is available. See your pro shop for more information!

Angle that bites more than anything else!

The Scorpion Low Flare is one of my favorite Mid-performance balls of all time, so I wasn’t expecting to take its place. It didn’t need to replace it, because it’s so much more on dry heads with carrydown?! There is something noticeably different when this model comes off the spot, compared with its three predecessors? If Skid/Flip is the desired reaction for the day or night, I honestly can’t think of a more angular motion in my arsenal!
