There is a lot to talk about with Hammer’s second September launch, the Infamous. The Hammer Infamous core is a new design, and while it’s symmetric, it is packed with technology. Hammer is back to using multi-densities within the core to create new ball motions. The Infamous core has a large extra-dense flip block that sits on the top of the core body, and it features a radial disc on the bottom of the ball that helped give the original Obsession extra motion on the backend. There are four densities on the inside of the Infamous, including the famous Carbon Fiber outer core. The Hammer Infamous bowling ball utilizes Envy Solid, the same formula as the Obsession, but is not CFI infused.
There aren’t many balls we can compare the Hammer Infamous to on the market. The technology-packed core and strong solid cover produce a motion that is extremely useful and unique. Bowlers looking for a big symmetric ball shape will have to have this in their bag.

Hammer has come out with a very nice benchmark type bowling ball with the Infamous. It is a first ball out of the bag kinda ball as the motion is so predictable. I had the opportunity to throw this at the Senior US Open recently. I did not perform well at all, but the Infamous accounted my best series of games on a very difficult pattern. It is about 3 or 4 boards stronger than my Web Tour Hybrid. This will be in play for me on house & sport patterns quite a bit.
