Black Widow Black/Gold

This new Black Widow features the Aggression Hybrid coverstock, which is the same chemical base as the cover found on the Rip’D. Wrapped around Hammer’s iconic Gas Mask core, this Widow is designed to perform best on medium to heavy oil. This Widow’s deadly backend bite and pin action will be sure to turn some heads.

With Hammer’s patent-pending carbon fiber outer core, this Black Widow carries Hammer’s three-year warranty.

Hammer recommends Tough N Tacky cleaner to keep the Black Widow Black/Gold performing at its best.

4/29/2021 300 with this ball

Nothing Hits Like a Hammer!

This ball is a prime example of Hammer Bowling! It has been years since I have thrown an honor score and I managed to shoot 300 in Federation 2 weeks ago. This makes 4 honor scores with the Black Widow lineup. 1 -300 with the Black & Gold and 1-300, 1-299, 2-290 with the Black Widow Bite. Needless to say, I love the Black Widow lineup!


I have been bowling for over 22 years. Started young all the way through highschool and college. Have 3 black widows. The venom the dark legend hybrid and just got this beauty to be my starter. Just shot a 277 Friday. Have had multiple 270+ games with all three balls from this line. This ball is much stronger and I can play more left then I ever have and trust this ball will come back.

Dies at the end

Hooks great but fades at the end and leaves a soft 10 most of the time. My other hammer balls dont have this proplem.

Amazing Ball

This ball is the 1st out of my bag every time during practice. My benchmark ball to determine if I need to move in to open up the lane, move up to a stronger ball like The Sauce or drop down to the Black widow Gold or Rhodman pearl. This ball is always in my arsenal. My 1st series with this ball went 245, 256, 213 box finish and 299, 298, 223 with a 3000 abralon finish. The Gas Mask core is my all time favorite and combined with the Agression Hybrid cover is genius.
