This latest release from Hammer is the second under the “High Flare” banner, continuing the Arson name in the mid-price performance line that started in 2011. This introduction uses the Modified Arson 2 core that was used previously in the original Arson High Flare. This core offers more differential than the Sauce core found in the original Arson, the Arson core used in the Arson Pearl, and, obviously, the Modified Arson weight block that was featured in the two Arson Low Flare releases. This ball uses a new coverstock called Max-Hook Solid, which comes sanded out of the box at a 3000 Abralon finish.

The combination of strong coverstock with the big-flaring core design make this the strongest Arson so far, but we still had the best reaction with it on
