Hammer Phobia for med-heavy oil patterns. Drilled our demo pin up wow the length is what I have needed very easy to get lined up and Strike. You will love the control in the backend without losing drive through the pins.

Phobia is a excellent new addition to the Upper Mid of Hammer ball line. This ball features and brand new symmetrical core with the same number as Gas mask asymmetrical core. I have drilled a pin up(65 5 3/8 x 35) and pin down(80 x 5 x 75). Phobia has good mid lane pick up and a bunch of back end. This ball is wrapped by the very successful semtex pearl cover stock that was also on Black Widow Limited. I have a lot of success with this ball on various patterns. Great addition to anyone bowling arsenal.

About the Bowler

This ball is amazing, I drilled this with a pin up layout between the fingers and cg kicked out about 5/8 of an inch so there's no balance hole. Great for down and in and when u have to move inside , it reads the midlane and still has power to turn the corner. You will want this ball in your arsenal!

I've had this ball for about 2 weeks now. Drilled 75 × 2 7/8 x 50 This ball has easy length for me with a powerful ball motion off the spot. This is a very nice symmetric option to compliment the Widows that have the Gas Mask core. I can use this ball on anything from medium-dry to medium-oily. One 300 under my belt with the Phobia with more to follow. Excellent bowling ball!!!

Hey ya'all... Stefanie Johnson here... I specifically drilled this ball with the pin 1" from my PAP for use on short patterns and it has not disappointed! The small pin on my Phobia in particular was perfect for that type of drilling and has been exactly what I was looking for - clean through the fronts and very smooth after the end of the pattern. Highly recommend!

Wow, is all I have to say about this ball. This is the cleanest ball I have thrown that still has the ability to make the corner and split the 8-9. This ball is will fit anyone's game. The ball is a great step down from the scandal Pearl.

So I drilled my Phobia using a 70 x 5 1/2 x 65 layout, which put my din down and under my bridge. I was very impressed by the motion of this ball. Even though it has a symmetrical core it is more angluar than my Scandal Pearl and a little cleaner through the mids. This ball will fill the gap in my bag between my Scandal Pearl and my Rebel.

About the Bowler

This ball is a perfect compliment to the Scandal. Smooth through the midlane and lots energy left at the pins. A little more angular than the Scandal, but great for medium oil or lanes in transition. Hits like you would expect from a Hammer.

BALL LAYOUT USED: 70 x 5 x 60

Was curious about this new addition to the Hammer line and where it would fit, so after drilling mine with a pin down layout, I am quite impressed with the ball motion that I see with the new Phobia which fits perfectly in the Legend series and offers a symmetrical core in this line. For me the Phobia is cleaner and a bit more angular overall compared to the Scandal Pearl and it is definitely stronger than the original Rebel so it fits perfectly in between those two balls. The Phobia really shines when you need to get inside the pattern and need a ball to turn the corner in the backends for various medium lane patterns. It will allow various styles of bowlers be able to start straighter and chase the oil if needed. I see the Scandal Pearl a little earlier and rolly compared to the Phobia which offers a skid/flip backend motion that does not stop cornering. The Phobia is about 3-4 boards weaker overall than the Scandal Pearl, but stores up more energy down the lane, and is about 3-4 boards more than my Rebel Pearl.
I really like what I see in this new release from Hammer and I think this ball will be a must have ball for those that are looking for something that offers a great motion to have an angular symmetrical rolling ball in your bag. - it really continues through the pin deck! Very versatile ball… You will be impressed!
With the standard 3 year warrantee that Hammer provides for their balls, this is another added value for your money!

I found this to be a pearl that gives big backend motion without an over/under reaction. The Phobia is a great compliment to Hammer's upper mid performance line. When I want to move inside, and bounce this ball off of the dry, I can do it with ease. My favorite pearl of the year.

The Phobia quickly became my favorite hammer ball after drilling it. I went with a pin down layout making the ball earlier but still gives me a really good down lane reaction... I will say I was supper surprise by how strong this ball was for me. If you are looking for a ball to clear the fronts well and have a strong down lane reaction this would be a great choice.

If I had to use one word to describe this ball, it would be WOW! This ball is extremely versatile and can be used on plenty of different oil conditions. Very clean through the fronts and continues through the pins extremely well. I have found that I can keep this ball in front of me which allows me to stay right longer but it stills gives me the confidence of moving left and opening up my angles. A must have in everyones arsenal!

Hammers all new Phobia is that symmetric ball that truly compliments the Hammer balls with the Gas Mask cores. When you get the bleed off of energy with the legendary Gas Mask core the Phobia steps in and delivers the same down lane motion and continuation through the pins.This Phobia core measures 8.5 on Hammers FCC rating which makes this a powerful core to concur tough and demanding lane conditions.
