First impressions, the hammer fugitive solid, feels like a lot of ball, for the money looks like it’s, going to be a great bang for the buck all right. The fugitive solid follows on to the first pearl, making them the first two balls released in the mid performance category for hammer since brunswick took over.
I was impressed by the pro and now the solid follow suit. The fugitive solid is both strong and responsive. Sometimes the cover strength causes motion, loss down lane, not the case with this ball. Far from it, in fact that first blush, i worry that it’s too strong, and maybe the core won’t, be strong enough, making a little lazy down.
However, once james settled in with this and the fresh cover got a few tosses in it, the ball really started to shine. The fugitive solid has pretty decent mid lane, read with a rounded transition, and then it just accelerates when it sees the friction and james finds a very nice look right between the third and fourth arrow out to your typical, eight or so break point on on the House shot, the main thing is the ball felt reliable, meaning once you understand what the ball does down lane you just play to that and you get more comfortable james had his share of four pins with the ball going a little high, hence mrs intended to be That four pin, occasionally something a little more ugly um misses out, seemed to bleed the balls energy.
A little more than i’d like so the occasional 2 8 or flat ring 10 is something we did see. James tested the boundaries in and, as he started getting past the fourth arrow he was staring down at 10 pin.
He also tested the more direct line with a much lower axis rotation, as he did with the redemption hybrid. But the fugitive solid looks spectacular out there. It felt like a pocket magnet and rather than stand up a bit hard and you know, stand up in the friction outside.
It was more continuous, which bodes well for those bowlers who play more direct in the friction. As mentioned earlier, we tested the fugitive solid on the pretty tricky and flat kegel arsenic pattern.
Also, as discussed previously, this type of pattern you have to watch your angles very carefully. Uh james had a very good look going around 18 to 9.. He did live the odd seven pin several times actually on very good shots.
Nevertheless, he had good control. The strong motion um look on this pattern. Of course, this is still an accuracy pattern, so misses in are still not ideal and misses out. Our punishing the big thing is that typically you don’t need or want this much cover for very long on this pattern, as flat patterns change so quickly and strong covers make it even quicker, as they break down the fronts.
But this could be a very good look uh to start early on in the block final thoughts. The hammer fugitive solid, is gonna provide a great bang for the buck and a nice one-two with the fugitive pearl. I could see many bowlers jumping on this due to the strength it’s, probably around a b-plus as well.
It has big benefits, it does have some limitations. This is likely a strong control. Uh ball out of box in terms of arsenal, fit possibly mid control for some, especially as it lane shines, and that could be a conundrum.
Do you want a mid-range ball? Stealing the thunder of something further upstream, all in all a good effort from hama
