Hammer Rhodman Pearl

Bill Rhodman was an important figure in The National Bowling Association. So much so, the TNBA dedicated all of their regional “Rhodman” events in his memory. As a proud sponsor/partner of the TNBA, Hammer is excited to introduce the Rhodman Pearl. The new Rhodman Pearl has a pearl coverstock with a strong, symmetric core and is designed to fit between the Rip’D and Rebel Yell.

With Hammer’s patent-pending carbon fiber outer core, the Rhodman Pearl carries Hammer’s industry-leading three-year warranty.

Hammer recommends Tough N Tacky cleaner to keep the Rhodman Pearl performing at its best.

    • It’s hard to give accurate advice without knowing more about your throw. Rev rate, speed, axis tilt/rotation, and other mechanics are all important for deciding on a layout. However, I think it’s important to remember that the coverstock is responsible for 70% of ball motion characteristics. The RG, differential, and intermediate differential are only 30% of what gives a ball its motion. With that said, the layout is only a small fraction of that percentage. Ball layout is a way to fine-tune the specs of the core and doesn’t have a huge effect on the overall ball motion. With that in mind, I would worry more about how you surface that ball than the layout.
