Description

Details

FCC Rating (25)
The overall strength of the Phobia creates great length with a powerful ball motion. The newest addition to Hammer’s Upper Mid-Performance line is bringing back a symmetric core. Phobia works best on medium-heavy oil patterns, creating a lot of length with a very angular back end motion. Pins and competitors will break into a cold sweat with fear when the Phobia hits the lanes. Be afraid. Be very afraid.

FINISH (7.25)
The 500/1000 Abralon finish is polished with Powerhouse Factory Finish Polish to store energy for the back end.

CORE (8.5)
Our NEW Phobia core brings a powerful symmetric option to complement the legendary Gas Mask core.

COVER (9.25)
Our proven Semtex coverstock, which is featured in our Dark Legend Series, creates a strong angular motion at the back end. Now in a pearl version, the Phobia offers more skid through the front part of the lane allowing it to work on a wider variety of patterns.

The Phobia still rolls clean as it is designed and gives a good predictable motion off the backend.
The Hammer Phobia was drilled with a 60 x 2" x 60 layout with a weight hole 5" from my mid grip. With these tamer layouts, I am able to play more direct up the boards; however, the offset is when I have to play deep when I lose overall energy and carry. Much to my surprise the Phobia is a wonderful compliment to the asymmetrical Widows with its symmetrical core as a welcome haven. The Phobia still rolls clean as it is designed and gives a good predictable motion off the back end. I really liked this one in the bag as it was a good go to when the Diesel was over reacting for me!

The Phobia
The New Hammer Phobia is nothing less of Extraordinary!! Gets through the fronts very clean and a sharp turn off the breakpoint. A very good complement to any of the Legend series!!

Strong Pearl
So I drilled my Phobia using a 70 x 5 1/2 x 65 layout, which put my din down and under my bridge. I was very impressed by the motion of this ball. Even though it has a symmetrical core it is more angluar than my Scandal Pearl and a little cleaner through the mids. This ball will fill the gap in my bag between my Scandal Pearl and my Rebel.

Big Backend Motion from Hammer
BALL LAYOUT USED: 70 x 5 x 60

Was curious about this new addition to the Hammer line and where it would fit, so after drilling mine with a pin down layout, I am quite impressed with the ball motion that I see with the new Phobia which fits perfectly in the Legend series and offers a symmetrical core in this line. For me the Phobia is cleaner and a bit more angular overall compared to the Scandal Pearl and it is definitely stronger than the original Rebel so it fits perfectly in between those two balls. The Phobia really shines when you need to get inside the pattern and need a ball to turn the corner in the backends for various medium lane patterns. It will allow various styles of bowlers be able to start straighter and chase the oil if needed. I see the Scandal Pearl a little earlier and rolly compared to the Phobia which offers a skid/flip backend motion that does not stop cornering. The Phobia is about 3-4 boards weaker overall than the Scandal Pearl, but stores up more energy down the lane, and is about 3-4 boards more than my Rebel Pearl.
I really like what I see in this new release from Hammer and I think this ball will be a must have ball for those that are looking for something that offers a great motion to have an angular symmetrical rolling ball in your bag. - it really continues through the pin deck! Very versatile ball… You will be impressed!
With the standard 3 year warrantee that Hammer provides for their balls, this is another added value for your money!
