Axis Point- 5-3/4 over, 9/16 up.
Layout- 60X50 with a 5-1/2 inch pin.

The core in the Arson Low Flare is the modified Arson Core. A large amount of differential has been removed from the core, leaving a low RG and low differential core that matches up perfectly to drier lanes. The coverstock on the Arson Low Flare is the Max-Control Pearl coverstock. This box finish on the Arson Low Flare is cut at 500/500/500/500 abralon and then coated with Powerhouse Clean n’ Sheen.
The Arson Low Flare is the ultimate dry lane bowling ball. The surface allows to ball to read earlier and smooth the reaction out, while the core is designed to flare very little to keep the ball stable down the lane so it is easy to control and get to the pocket on dry lanes. The shape is entirely new and unique. You can use the Arson Low Flare without having to worry about it jumping off of the dry, and this controlled reaction makes it much easier to find the pocket consistently. On top of that, you aren’t surrendering any carry or drive through the pins with the Arson Low Flare. This ball hits like a truck!
I have used the Arson Low Flare in a few situations where the pattern is either short or burnt up after a long day of bowling, and it has worked out beautifully for me. I love the predictable motion down the lane. It makes finding the pocket consistently much easier. I have a higher rev-rate, so short or dry patterns can be my enemy sometimes, but the Arson Low Flare has helped me in that area tremendously. I have even used it in situations where wet/dry conditions have been an issue for me, and I was amazed at how much easier this ball made the pattern play. I didn’t have to worry about the ball jumping off of the dry or hydroplaning through the oil anymore. The surface was just enough for the ball to read in the oil, and the core and surface combined kept the ball from snapping off of the dry.
The Arson Low Flare has become a very reliable ball for me. Instead of stressing over what to use and how to get to the pocket on dry, short, or wet/dry conditions, I can now count on the Arson Low Flare to make those conditions much easier for me. I am fully convinced that this is the best ball on the market for these conditions and a good match for any bowler struggling with these conditions.

This ball is very great for dry lanes. It rolls very smooth through the front with just enough backend motion. My ball is a 2-3 pin placement. The ball is drilled up as a smooth reaqction. This ball for me is not very versital though. If you bowl in heavy oiled house this ball wont work very well till the last game. But if you have a dryer house shot this ball will work very well from start to finish.

COMMENTS

Likes:Hammer has great versatile ball in the Low Flare. This ball is awesome for all styles of bowling, especially the higher rev guys. With the weak core and 500 surface this ball is awesome for fried heads and mids. The ball is the smoothest through the fronts of any ball I have thrown even with 500 surface. The ball has good continuation on the back with control. This ball is great for league, but I found it even better on sport conditions. The low flare is a great ball to use to not to give the pocket away. The ball motion is smooth and predictable. On league and shorter sport patterns this ball is awesome.

The VAl drilling low flare rolls the best. Used at Nationals, league, and all my sport patterns in our PBA league. CONTROL is the name for this ball.

Dislikes: Heavy oil but there are plenty other balls in the Hammer line up for oil.

Wow is all I can say about the Arson Low Flare. This is my favorite ball in the Hammer line. This ball is good no matter lane condtions or surface. I have drilled 4 of these so far and have 6 of them just sitting waiting to be drilled. I have never had such a great underrated ball on my hand. This ball is simply amazing and has to be the best symmetrical ball on the market right now. Smooth through the fronts and does it have bite on the back ends. Jeff Ussery nailed it on this ball. The low diff on this ball is what makes it so good. No matter you rev rate or where you play the lane you need the Arson Low Flare in your bag. I will have one in mine for years to come.

The Arson Low-Flare is an amazing ball in my opinion. I drilled mine with a 4 1/2" pin to PAP with a stack leverage layout. This ball gives bowlers traction in oil along with the smooth transition in friction. I've thrown this ball on all types of patterns ranging from Cheetah (35') to Don Carter (50'). This is the best all around ball. I can pull the low-flare out of my bag at anytime and know I will get a smooth arc motion that doesn't over react in friction. For bowlers with higher ball speed and rev rates this ball is the "get out of jail" ball. When bowlers are typically in between the High Performance ball and the Entry level this is the go to ball. You still have the strength of the High Performance but the read of an entry level ball. I would recommend this ball to any bowler. This is a true benchmark ball for me.
