The Swagga is the second release by Hammer in conjunction with the TNBA (The National Bowling Association). It uses the same Gas Mask core design used in the first few Widows and in the Chalk. This core offers a quick revving action along with a large flare potential, creating a large amount of traction with the lane. Not only is the core used in the Swagga a proven winner, the cover is quickly gaining the same respect. The Level 2 Reactive shell, which was recently introduced on the Plague, offers superb traction at the back half of the lane.

All three of our testers found the Swagga to match up best with our oily test pattern. The factory finish gave each enough traction in the front of the lane to see the strong motion downlane
