The newest fire starter in Hammer’s mid price line is the Arson Hybrid. This is the second hybrid-covered Arson in the line and has a different box finish than the first.

The 3000 Abralon cover matched up best with our medium test pattern. Stroker and Tweener had all the hook they wanted from this ball. Stroker started between the first and second arrows and took full advantage of the sanded cover. His breakpoint was right at the end of the oil pattern and the Arson Hybrid rolled strongly through the pocket. Tweener was about an arrow deeper and had about the same trajectory going down the lane. The Arson Hybrid was a near perfect match for their rev rates and ball speed. Their misses inside held line and their misses
