Drilled this one the same as the Black Widow Gold and it is absolutely more angular than the BWG. Good 1-2 punch to use if you desire angular back end motion. Good for medium conditions and even as those medium conditions start to break down it would hold up for a bit.
PAP is 4 9/16" over, 7/16" up
low-flare layout: 90 x 2 1/4 x 45
surface: 4000 abralon

Hello Hammer Nation! Hammer does it again with the Carbon Fiber and Pearl version of the Gauntlet! This Gauntlet Fury is a great addition to your arsenal and kick out the corner pins when the Gauntlet starts losing energy. Very impressed and excited for Hammerheads out there!
I loved the Carbon Fiber infused Semtex Pearl coverstock used on the Scandal Pearl, so when I heard that the same cover is with the core of the Gauntlet, very excited to hear this. This addition to the Hammer brand provides a stronger coverstock that can handle more oil, yet be strong enough down the lane to cut through the carry down if needed. The Fury cover seems a little stronger than advertised for a pearl ball and handles the heavier medium patterns with ease. This ball is definitely a great ball for the typical house patterns as you can keep moving left (right handed) and the ball will not quit on you. For me, the Fury corners more down the lane than the new Black Widow GOLD and really shines when you need to get inside the pattern and need a ball to turn the corner in the backends for various medium to medium-heavier lane patterns.
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 asymmetrical rolling ball in your bag. – The Fury 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!
