I bought this ball to replace my Hammer Emerald Vibe which I had a lot of success with. As most people know, Hammer discontinued the Emerald Vibe which in my opinion; was the best mid-range bowling ball Hammer ever released. I laid out the Midnight Vibe just as I had for the Emerald Vibe (pin above my ring finger) and the reaction is very similar. Both balls have the same core but the cover of the Midnight Vibe is a little bit stronger.

Last night while bowling league, I was having an inconsistent reaction playing inside with the Hammer First Blood. After grinding out a 2-teen the first game, I switched balls to the Midnight Vibe and moved a little right of the track area. Throwing the ball up the 6th board, it got through the heads clean, was strong off the back-ends and the pin carry was excellent. I ended up shooting 259 and 268 the first two games out of the box with it.

This ball checks up nicely off the back-ends but doesn't overreact. I wouldn't suggest this ball for heavy oil but if the condition is slightly broken down or if you have the ability to play up the lane, this ball would be a good choice. In my previous experience with the Emerald Vibe; I would usually only throw it when the conditions forced me to play up the lane whereas on heavier volumes of oil (or if I had to play inside), I would use something stronger such as the Arson or now currently, the First Blood.

As usual, Ebonite International/Hammer has delivered once again for me and I am impressed with the Hammer Midnight Vibe.
