PICK UP A NEW OBSESSION!
The Obsession and Obsession Tour have the same core shape; however, the Tour edition differential is .016 points lower, creating less flare, less hook, and a more controllable reaction compared to the regular Obsession.
The Obsession has a new strong formula called Envy Solid CFI, where we’ve gone back to infusing the shell with carbon fiber. Featuring DOT technology, which allows you to drill anywhere which makes this ball even tougher.
Hammer recommends Tough Scrub to keep your Obsession performing its best!

I have not tried a high end performance hammer ball in a while because I was always stuck on the throwback upper-mid performance. I decided to short pin this ball because of the strong numbers, strong cover and being a solid. My first 16 frames in league with this ball were 10 pin, 10 pin, and then the next 14 strikes after making an adjustment. I still ended up with a good series after that but the lanes were breaking down different from normal so I had to work through the transition. I should have changed balls because this ball is strong and needed more oil. I would recommend for heavy oiled patterns, also this ball rolls very strong and very little deflection through the pins.
The Obsession by Hammer is a big, asymmetrical ball that is for heavy oil or longer patterns. On your THS, I found the Obsession is pretty clean up front, starts digging in the mids, and offers a strong change of direction, off the pattern with a continuous motion through the deck.
I drilled my Hammer Obsession 45x5x40 to match my game. The ball was smooth and cleared the heads with no problems then it made a distinct move and thru the pocket. My lower rev rate of 300 and speed at 16mph usually keeps me from using very many strong asymmetrical bowling balls….except this one. I could move left and cross 20 going right and it kept continuing thru the pins! This is a new core design for Hammer and I for one hope they continue to use this technology.
This is gonna be your big asymmetric core, solid cover, eat up the oil ball. It will be your go to ball on heavy volume or long oil patterns. For me it is very close in shape to the Redemption solid. I would say it gets a little bit farther down lane and is a little more angular thru the pin deck. Overall very nice shape with good carry.
This obsession has beautiful appeal with the pink popping while it rolls down lane. Don’t let the pretty color fool you though this ball digs in and puts in work. I have this ball earlier and overall a little stronger than the redemption solid. This is gonna be a great ball to start the night off and will transition easy to the obsession tour.
