The Bad Intentions Hybrid is the third Hammer ball to use the Spheroid symmetrical core design, following in the footsteps of the Bad Ass and the original Bad Intentions. This release uses a new coverstock named Juiced Extreme Hybrid, which is cleaner through the front and more angular at the spot than the original Bad Intentions. It comes out of the box at a 3000 Abralon finish.

This ball’s sanded cover gave it enough total hook to be successful on our heavy test pattern. All three testers started a few boards farther right than they were with the first Bad Intentions. The Hybrid pushed farther down the lane than the Bad Intentions and offered a bigger back end move. This was useful as the pattern started
