    The Black Widow is definitely back!

    The Hammer Black Widow 2.0 lives up to the Black Widow name. Strong asymmetric solid that creates a lot of shape, even on oil. The coverstock is also very adaptable to surface changes if you need it for larger or smaller volumes of oil. When I need a big asymmetric shape the Black Widow 2.0 is the first one out of my bag.

    A spot on remake of a legendary ball.

    Posted by Jeffrey Poholsky on May 18th 2021

    The Black Widow 2.0 has become a favorite for me when wanting to keep my angles fairly straight yet also be able to get the ball through the mid-lane easily. It's really versatile and I love how when it starts it's move to the pocket it picks up momentum and drives through the pins. I have the pin under the middle finger and the ball still behaves like a flippy layout. Having been with Brunswick for a long time, when I was able to throw this ball I didn't know what to expect but always heard that the original Widow was a great piece. That is certainly correct, the gas mask core plus the coverstock combine beautifully together for all styles. I will say one thing, this ball like most nowadays, is fairly condition specific. If I need to get left and open up the lane, I do need to move to either a stronger ball or a hybrid/pearl to get the hitting power I'm looking to achieve. Nevertheless, this is a terrific, versatile ball that I'd recommend for any casual, league, or tournament bowler. Jeff Poholsky Brunswick Regional Staff

    Benchmark shape

    Posted by Jeremy Zimmely on Apr 15th 2021

    Benchmark asymmetric! Its smooth, controllable, and continuous. I am able to play a wide variety of angles and I seem to use it more on medium to long patterns, but it can be a house shot monster for medium and lower rev rate players.

    I never threw a widow before. I like the motion. It hit very hard on the heavy oil house that I bowl league. 740 out of the box.

    Its back and better than ever. The Black Widow 2.0 features the original Gas Mask core. Great for medium to heavy oil, and a big sweeping continuous ball motion that creates a lot of angle and high score potential. This is def a must have in the bag.

    Gas Mask Core Returns

    Posted by Michael Romero on Mar 22nd 2021

    The Black Widow is back and exactly what you want in your bag! The BW 2.0 can be the next best benchmark ball in your bag! The OOB finish provides multiple angles of versatility with the ability to change the surface and make it fit your lane needs. This ball is very predictable and allows you keep your angles in front of you! I drilled mine 55 x 4 1/2 x 25.

    It's Back

    Posted by Richard Oakes Jr on Mar 3rd 2021

    It's back! The Hammer Black Widow 2.0 is a strong asym that is clean through the fronts, and predictable. It's a Hammer so it hit's like a Hammer! The new 2.0 is amazing and will be used on heavier oil conditions. I find it versatile on many patterns and just like other Hammer equipment you will enjoy the all new 2.0 . Look around you will see many bowlers using this one!
