The Hammer Arson Low Flare Solid is the newest entry into Hammer’s mid-performance price point. This ball uses the Modified Arson weight block that is identical to the core found in the original Arson Low Flare. Also like the original, the ball is stamped with the “Tournament Differential” logo, a reminder of what makes the Low Flare line unique. While this ball offers a smooth transition from front to back, it is not as early or as smooth as the Burgundy Hammer from a few months ago.

This ball was best for us on our medium test pattern. The new Max-Control Solid coverstock gave us more total hook and more motion at the back
