Hammer Gauntlet

Product Code: 05Gauntlet

Availability: Out of stock

Hammer Gauntlet


The Semtex CFI (Carbon Fiber Infused) coverstock from the Scandal is back, but this time it's wrapped around a new asymmetric core. That's right. Asymmetric. Originally, we tamed this monster shell by using a symmetric core, but now we've developed the new asymmetric Gauntlet core specifically for this beast.

Of course, the new Gauntlet features Hammer's patent pending carbon fiber infusion in both the outer core and the coverstock, making the Gauntlet one of the toughest, most durable balls on the planet. The new Gauntlet will change direction down lane quicker and harder than the Scandal, so get ready to run the Gauntlet.

Even with a weak layout on the ball, this ball was still too strong for me playing more direct up the boards.
I drilled my Gauntlet with a 90 x 2.5" x 50 layout. The intent was for it to get clean length and still have its power on the back end. It was very unpredictable for me on medium conditions with this layout. It worked great, however, when I had to move in deep and tighten up my line to the pocket inside more. Even with such a weak layout, this ball was still too strong for me playing more direct up the boards.

Gauntlet = BEAST!
The gauntlet is the strongest ball I've ever had hands down. This thing will hook on ice! I have a 3 3/8 pin on mine with a weight hole and this ball moves on anything. If you're looking for a HP ball for heavy oil conditions, don't look any further. A 50ft flat shot has nothing on this monster!

On a scale of 1 to 10, ball is an 11
What an unbelievable piece of equipment! This ball has such a versatile cover stock, making it easy to get thru the heads & midlane with plenty of backend reaction . Matte or dirty cover, this ball will not disappoint.

Absolute Monster
Rev - Medium, Ball Speed - Medium
Layout: 75 x 4 x 45

I have had my eye on this ball since I first saw the spec information on it. I finally was able to get my hands on one and I must say it was worth the wait. I don't have a very high ball speed so high performance equipment has not always worked well for me. I struggle with finding strong equipment that won't burn up on me even on heavy oil. This Gauntlet is in a whole new category. The hybrid coverstock stores energy for me, but does not lack in its ability to read heavier oil patterns and crushes the pins when it gets to the pocket.

STRONG Rolling Ball from Hammer
BALL LAYOUT: 70 x 5 x 60

The new Gauntlet has a really special ball motion that we have not seen in the Hammer brand. This ball is STRONG and with a strong continuous ball motion down the lane as well. I LOVE my Scandal & Scandal Pearls and the Gauntlet fits in between these two balls. The Gauntlet has a hybrid cover with the Carbon Fiber Infused just like the Scandal, which provides a little more length and stronger backend motion than the Scandal. The Gauntlet needs head oil to really enjoy the ball motion this ball provides. The great thing about this strong rolling piece is you can keep moving left and the ball does not stop moving toward the pocket. I am really impressed with this ball motion from the Hammer brand.

I think this ball will be a must have ball for those that are looking for something offers a great motion that does not stop rolling in the backend – it really continues through the pin deck! Very versatile ball… You will be impressed!

With the new 3 year warranty that Hammer provides for this ball, this is the BEST value for your money!

Oil Beast
The Gauntlet is the first HP Hammer ball I have drilled in awhile I must say I am very impressed with it so far the Gauntlet is definitely a oil beast. The Gauntlet is a very strong rolling continuous ball that does not lay down when going through the pins, very impressed with how well it hits even from very deep strong angles.Looking forward to putting more games on this Beast every chance I can.
