Show no mercy toward the competition with the Hammer Cold Blood!

Pin to PAP(5 1/8" over 1/8" up) - 4"
Dual Angle Layout - 40 x 5 3/4" x 35
Balance Hole - On PAP

Surface Preparation - Out of Box (500/500/1000 Abralon - Clean N Sheen)

What I Was Looking For In This Ball Layout:
I have always had a good luck with Hammer balls using pin up layouts. I typically keep the pin 5" - 5 3/4" from my PAP to assist in getting a clean look through the heads with a good amount of direction change downlane.

I used a 5 3/4" pin to PAP with a strong drilling angle on the Cold Blood to see what this ball could do on the backend. I expect to see a good amount of skid with a quick reaction to friction and a strong motion off the break point.

What I Ended Up With in the Ball and Layout:
I ended up with a really strong continuous ball motion from my Cold Blood. I was expecting a little different ball motion overall but I was pleasantly surprised with the reaction I got from this ball.

Off my hand, as expected it was super clean. You could see it get into a really strong roll but it never read any friction early. In the middle part of the lane I got a really strong revving motion and the ball started to read the friction a little more then I expected but it turned out to be really good.
The Cold Blood has awesome continuation downlane for me with really good pop on the backend creating a strong finish.

All in all a really good piece from Hammer and a perfect ball to match up to heavier volume patterns or when you need to get in an have the ball create a strong overall motion for you.
