Additional product information:

Improving an already incredible line isn’t easy, but we managed to do it again with the new Black Widow 3.0. Each Widow release in recent years has been more popular than the previous and has taken ball reaction to new levels, and the Black Widow 3.0 will not be an exception. The Black Widow 3.0 is an incredible complement to the Widow 2.0 Hybrid; it has surface and tractions more in oil, making it a great ball to pull out of your bag first. The new Black Widow 3.0 is a solid reactive, much like the Black Widow 2.0, but the cover has been upgraded with a solid version of HK22 and has the same out-of-the-box surface as the Black Widow 2.0. HK22 gives the new Black Widow an advantage on medium to oily lanes, and Hammer fans will be excited when they see that it’s the traditional black and orange Hammer colors.

    This ball is very good, very clean through the fronts and a wicked backend movement. i shot a 300 out of the box. great benchmark bowling ball and the first ball out the bag.

    Widow 3.0

    Posted by Bob Moran on Feb 25th 2024

    No disappointment here at all! I haven’t always matched up with this core but this one does everything I want to see. Gets through the fronts and picks up in the midlane and never looses that continuation through the pins. Predictable shape and versatile. Definitely goin to have a few of these. Don’t miss out on this one

    Black Widow is BACK!!!

    Posted by Michael Romero on Feb 23rd 2024

    Boy did Hammer get this one right with another addition to an incredible line with the Black Widows. The Black Widow 3.0 has the backend reaction that you may not have in the 2.0. Is it the Gas Mask Core? Is it the HK22? You should get yours and see for yourself! I drilled mine slightly earlier and stronger than I typically drill my equipment, (50 x 5 x 20), and my favorite pin down layout, and both bowling balls do not disappoint! The midlane read and backend reaction for both bowling balls are strong and continuous through the pins. Don't wait on this ball! As we head into tournament season, this ball is a must have in your bag!

    Black Widow 3.0 (HK22)

    Posted by Brent G Watson on Feb 19th 2024

    Ok hammer fans, this might be the best Black Widow to date. The new 3.0 easily gets through the front part of the lane, with good midlane, and that Black Widow continuation on the back end. The HK 22 additive is a game changer on the new 3.0. I went with a 50 x 4.75 x 25 layout with my PAP being 4 7/8 over and 1 1/4 up. This layout gives me a lot versatility on several lane conditions. The new cover is what separates this widow from the ones in the past. The new 3.0 will be a great compliment to the Hybrid 2.0., when you need more control from a solid on medium to heavier lane conditions. This is my favorite Black Widow. Another great addition to the Hammer Line up.

    I drilled mine 30 X 4 X 55. The Hammer Black Widow 3.0 perfectly complements my Black Widow 2.0 Hybrid. The HK-22 cover stock with Aggression Solid additives has created the ideal option for heavy oil lane conditions. This ball does not quit down the lane and will be an excellent benchmark piece for me. The Black Widow line is incredible; you will not want to miss out on this 3.0.

    Hammer Black Widow 3.0

    Posted by Bob Newman on Feb 9th 2024

    Hammer didn't disappoint with the latest addition to the Widow line. The Black Widow 3.0 has the trusty Gas Mask core, but they really beefed up the cover by adding HK22 to the base cover-stock. This ball is big & strong yet not uncontrollable. For me when I compared it to my BW 2.0 it hooked about 4 & 2 more and had a little more angle thru the pins. The 3.0 doesn't eliminate the 2.0, it compliments it very well. This ball will be good on both House shots & Sport patterns. I will have a Widow triple tote at every tournament. BW 3.0, BW 2.0, & BW 2.0 Hybrid.

    Black Widow 3.0

    Posted by Michael Stout on Feb 8th 2024

    Best ball I have used when the lanes are oiled just before league. This ball reads the lane the best I have seen and will work great for the whole league night with no need for a ball change. I highly recommend this ball if you are looking for a ball that works well for oily lanes.
