It’s back, and it’s beautiful.  The original black and red colors pay homage to one of the most successful balls of all-time, as we bring back the original reaction shape, updated for today’s conditions.  The Black Widow 2.0 is precisely what you want from a Black Widow, enough traction on medium to heavy oil and a big sweeping continuous ball motion that creates a lot of angle and high scores.  This is the ball that bowlers have been asking for, and they will be in love.
The Black Widow 2.0 features the original Gas Mask core shape the bowling world knows and loves and is combined with a Carbon Fiber outer core for durability and power.  This familiar core system is wrapped with Aggression Solid and has a 500, 1000, 2000 Siaair finish.

    Black Widow 2.0

    Posted by Joe Goldstein, Sr. on Feb 22nd 2021

    The Black Widow 2.0 is very much like the original Black Widow but a bit stronger. I liked the surface out of the box which was very smooth and responsive. Allowed me to close down the angles as well as open them up and was pleased that it was very predictable from every angle. This is definitely a ball to have in your bag and if you were a fan of the original, you'll be in love with this baby!!

    First thought on the new Black Widow 2.0 is predictable. The ball is smooth with a rounded shape , down lane. It packs plenty of hitting power. Observation is straight out of the box, no surface adjustment. The ball will tell you what the lane is giving you and make your adjustments from there. Keeping things simple!

    just like og

    This is the closest to the original widow that they’ve come out with ever since. For a strong asym solid its very clean through the fronts, very strong yet predictable off the spot. Hits like youd expect from a hammer with the old gas mask core. Takes amazingly well to surface changes like the original, from 500 all the way to high polish. Very versatile and very easy to match up with just about anybody.

    A Titan of a bowling ball

    Posted by OD on Jan 25th 2021

    The Black Widow 2.0 is a ball with a wow-factor, plain and simple. It'll surprise both you and the others that are watching you throw the ball. A lot of times you get a ball you want to hook but it burns up mid-lane. Then if you go with something shinier, it floats down lane too much and is unpredictable on the backend. The Black Widow 2.0 grabs in the mid-lane like an aggressive ball should but it finishes on the backend with the hitting power of a pearl ball. I've not seen many balls perform like this one out of the box but it has earned a guaranteed spot in my bag no matter where I go, tournament or league

    It's Back

    I personally dont think much needs to be said about this release. The re-release is basically identical to what it was when it first came out. You know what you are getting and that is a great asymmetrical ball. There is no guessing here. Multiple drillings and layouts and you will love each. It is a classic done properly by Hammer

    It Lives Again

    Posted by Tim on Jan 13th 2021

    When Brunswick acquired the EBI brands we all knew there was one ball they would have to continue making and it better be a good remake. Well it is here and it’s a winner! This ball rounds out everything the Black widow name means. Don’t miss out on what I believe will be the next generation of the black widow series

    Great ball

    Posted by Ian L on Jan 13th 2021

    I would put this ball just under those strong asymmetrical balls. Its strong but has a more rounded shape to it that makes it very smooth and controllable. It's great on those medium to heavy oil conditions. It allows me to play different angles which is rare for those stronger asymmetrical balls. Comparing it to the original Black Widow, its very similar shape wise but obviously stronger to combat today's oil.

    Like the original Black Widow…Only Better!

    Posted by Scott Crawford on Dec 23rd 2020

    The Black Widow 2.0 is fantastic. After all the variations of the Black Widow this is the true second version of the original, so it had a lot to live up to and I think it does. The Gas Mask core is probably my favorite core of all time. It is just so continuous and powerful. It produces great pin action and hits as hard as any core I’ve ever seen and just seems to strike more. Now this Aggression Solid coverstock at a 2000 box finish is exactly that…. Aggressive and more overall hook than the original for sure. But the shape is very familiar for Widow fans. Strong overall, good mid-lane traction and amazing through the pins on the back. I’ve seen the best look from this so far when it sees some oil. It’s not meant for the dry really, but it thrives on a fresh house shot with some oil and on sport shots. Mine is drilled 55 x 3.75 x 20 and lets me open up the lane some and play multiple angles too. This will be a ball I use early in league and early in tournament blocks.
