Additional product information:

This is the 25th anniversary of the 3-D Offset, and we are excited to pay tribute to one of the greatest balls ever. The 3-D Offset offered new technology and outstanding performance. We've taken a lot of time and effort to introduce a ball worthy of the same name. We've strategically re-created this ball to remind you of the original while excelling on today's conditions.

We started with the core shape, creating a single density inner core with the same shape as the original. The original was a thick-shell ball, and we modified today's version with a carbon fiber outer core. These modifications create more dynamic core numbers for increased ball motion potential and a durable, harder-hitting product. We've also made this a D.O.T. ball which further increases durability and eliminates layout and drilling restrictions.

The ball's appearance is almost identical to the 3-D Offset from 25-years ago. The Blazing Violet stands out as much today as it did then, and we've branded it the same way with yellow Hammer logos on the right and left side and the orange 3-D Offset logo above the pin, or D.O.T. in this case. A minimal amount of Pearl was added to the Neoflex 25 cover to create optimal performance for today's conditions. The new 3-D Offset is finished at 2000 Siaair, yet it easily gets through the front of the lane and has a strong and continuous move throughout the backend and pin deck.

Bowlers that have been around for a while will have to have this nostalgic ball, and newer bowlers will want it for its incredible performance. Just as it was 25-years ago, this one will be a stand-out.

    Greatness Revisited…Believe the Hype!

    Posted by Bryan Williams, PBA Member and DV8 Pro Staff on Apr 29th 2022

    Hammer has brought back a legend in the bowling industry. The Hammer 3-D Offset is back and better than ever! Everything you have heard about this ball is 100% true and does not disappoint. The 3-D Offset is powerful, yet smooth and controllable. Like the ball of the past, the 3-D Offset is extremely predictable off the spot and strong through the pins. This ball can be drilled many different ways to give any bowler at any level the look and hook they are seeking. I recommend this ball for all bowlers at all levels because of its versatility, by giving bowlers the ability to play the lanes from multiple angles and roll consistently virtually all the time. This is also a great benchmark ball for anyone needing a ball to initially read the lanes. The 3-D Offset is a MUST in your bag. #brunswickbowling #hammerbowling

    3 D offset..IT'S BACK!@!!!!!

    Posted by phil hughes on Apr 27th 2022

    I drilled my 3D Offset at 65 x 5 x 40 in hopes it would give me the length and the back end needed for my house shot. The first few shot really surprised me as this PEARL picked up the mid lanes and then made a strong move through the pins. This ball hits harder than ANY ball that I have ever used and when it hits the pins it sounds like an explosion. I am 64 years old with lower ball speeds and I do not hit the shot like I used to but, this ball made up for all of my imperfections. Run and get one……Now!

    Fantastic Continuation

    Posted by cng260 on Apr 9th 2022

    The 3D Offset is a special ball with a smooth reaction you don't normally see from a pearl type bowling ball. This one is a bit stronger than the Widow 2.0 or the Obsession Tour pearl but with a completely different shape. When the other two balls stop this one keeps going. The amount of continuation you see from this ball is quite unusual for the smooth shape it has. The 3D is playable from all angles as long as you have enough oil and is my first choice if the lanes are on the slicker side. This one is much stronger than you would think but is a must have in the bag. It is a blend of the smoothness of old with the strength of newer technology. Everyone should own a new 3D Offset.

    Hammer 3D Offset, the legend returns!!!

    Posted by James G on Apr 8th 2022

    Here is my shot, quick hitter of the Hammer 3D Offset! I drilled this one 60 x 3.5" x 60 to give me a longer transition from skid to hook to roll, retain some tilt for better down-lane motion, getting through the pins consistently, and that is exactly what I got. This is my go-to pearl asymmetric ball on most medium oil sport shots, and typical house shots. This one lives up to the legendary 3D nameplate, featuring DOT and DynamiCore technology, for better hitting power and increased longevity.

    3D is darn right good!

    Posted by C.Miller on Apr 2nd 2022

    The 3D Offset is a ball that grabbed my attention with the first shot. It easily gets through the fronts and aggressively corners, down lane and through the pins. A versatile ball on different types of lane conditions!

    3-D Offset

    Posted by gerard uhrinek on Apr 1st 2022

    The 3-D Offset was one of my all time favorites and the remake has done it justice! I find this ball very strong through the mid lane and very continuous through the pins. The cover stock is very versatile. I have adjusted the surface a few times just to see how much it changes the shape and I was pleased every time. I definitely see this ball fitting a wide range of styles.

    Strong, Smooth, Continuous

    Posted by Marcus Winklepleck on Mar 29th 2022

    This ball is a beast! Do you need a strong ball that rolls great on almost everything? This is it! A true legacy ball. 25 years ago the 3D Offset made a huge splash in the bowling world. Today, the remake is picking up where the original left off.

    3D OffSet

    Posted by Clancy DeGroodt on Mar 28th 2022

    Awesome ball Stronger than I thought it would be. As a huge fan of the OG 3D Off Set I was very much looking forward to the remake. Hammer did not disappoint. The New Off Set has a strong cover that takes surface changes well. I drilled mine the standard 45x4x35 layout I use on all Asymmetrical pieces. The ball is strong on the midlane and continues through the pins great. The best way to describe this ball in relation to the OG 3D is that it is stronger overall compared to the choices available today than the OG was to the balls available then.
