Bad Intentions

For those not easily offended and who want to play a little mischievously, Hammer has a grittier, bigger hooking ball for you , we call it Bad Intentions.

The Bad Intentions features the same symmetric Spheroid core shape, but uses a grittier, more aggressive cover: Juiced Xtreme.

Spheroid Core:The Spheroid core has many of the dynamic properties found in some of the most successful core shapes in the history of bowling. Arguably, the most successful shape in history was used in the original Blue Hammer. This design was the founding premise behind our new Spheroid shape.

As always with Hammer, we’ve poured the Spheroid core with Flex-Resin and infused the outer core with Carbon Fiber to create the hardest hitting and most durable ball possible. We back this claim with an industry best 3 year warranty.

Juiced Xtreme is a solid cover with great traction, but the great thing about the Bad Intentions is the cover is clean enough, even with some teeth, to get down the lane and produce a backend reaction that’s nothing but good.

Finish:Juiced Xtrme is finished with 500, 2000 Abralon®, which is just strong enough to help the Bad Intentions handle more volume in the front part of the lane. The Bad Intentions handles surface changes well in order for it to work for a wide range of styles on a variety of conditions.
