What I Was Looking For In This Ball Layout:
As we do with any Black Widow series ball, we used a popular and pretty safe layout to ensure we could see the differences in their new core and coverstock technology. This layout generally lets us see peak performance from most balls and in the past has always worked very well on Black Widow balls.

What I Ended Up With in the Ball and Layout:
We got a very solid ball motion as expected from a brand such as Hammer with their Black Widow line. Initially I do not know if I can say that I saw anything new or exciting from this release. The ball rolled very good, it cleared the front smoothly and reacting to the friction just like you want to see it do. We got a very sharp motion off the break point from just about anywhere on the lane.

My only concern with this is that the ball reacted very similar to previous balls in this line. The changes in core and coverstock did not show any significant changes in overall ball motion to me from even the earliest balls
as the original Black Widow.

Does the Nasty roll good, yes. Will you be pleased with this ball if you ahve never thrown a Widow ball before, yes. If you ahve another Widow should you get this ball to compliment it, not so sure.
