Hammer Cold Blood Reviewed By: Sweetpea Bowl 09/30/2013 22:06 ( stars)

Here is my ball review for the Cold Blood. By way of layout, I used a 70 x 5 ½ x 65 layout with a weight hole 2 inches below the PAP. Prior to throwing the ball, I spun the ball with Reaction Plus to add a little shine to the ball. I wanted a ball that I could use on FRESH house or sport patterns. I used as a point of comparison the First Blood. With this layout and surface preparation, I found this ball to clear the heads quite efficiently and make a hard arc in the back part of the lane. It is not an angular motion in the back but it is not a smooth motion either like the motion from the Amp. Personally speaking, I found this ball to be cleaner with a stronger move in the back compared to the First Blood with similar surface preparation. Like with the First Blood, I believe these balls are best suited for the fresh patterns. I would be very interested in seeing what this ball will do with a different layout (a higher pin with a weaker MB position to see if I could get the motion to be “flippier”) and thus a ball that would be in play when the lanes go through the first transition. Aesthetically speaking, the deep, rich blue cover has great shelf appeal and from a performance point of view, I found the carry on this ball to be excellent. I think this ball would be best suited, as stated earlier, for the fresh patterns with medium to heavy volumes and potentially could be play on a variety of pattern lengths depending on the bowler. I also think that this ball will match up with a variety of different styles/rev rates/ball speeds and as such, will give the driller many options for whoever purchases this ball.
