Often imitated and never duplicated... this is the famous Purple Pearl Urethane, and it’s finally back in the Hammer line.
Some skeptics said we couldn’t make a Black Widow, and it just happens to be one of the hottest balls on the market six months after its release. They’ll say the same thing about the Purple Pearl Urethane, and they’ll be wrong again. We realize the importance of this ball and have done extensive testing to make sure it is precisely what bowlers expect.
The core and cover materials are all the same, as is the reaction. The one difference you’ll notice is that we now offer the Purple Pearl Urethane in 12 and 13 pounds.

I never owned a purple hammer when it was made in KY but I am very happy to have drilled one of the re-makes. This ball is very usable on house and sport conditions and is very predictable which makes it a ball that will be in every tournament bag for the foreseeable future.
What Is Not To Like About The Purple Pearl Urethane... The Newest Addition To The Hammer Bowling Line Really Is An Absolute Winner.. In Comparison To The First One That I Owned This One Has A Little More Backend Drive.. This One Gives Me A Little More Room And More Angle To The Pocket ! Its Definitely A Great Ball To Have And Will Be A Great Addition To My Arsenal Not Only For Tournaments But For League When Transition Hits... This Ball Will Help Me For The Medium To Low Oil Volume Patterns And Allows Me To Stay To The Right And Straighter Angles To The Pocket! Also Been Using This As A Spare Ball As Well Plus With The Urethane Gives Me An Extra Ball In My Bag For Tournaments When Lanes Are Really Starting To Hook A Ton Especially On Longer Tournament Formats!

First of all, THE COLOR IS SO PRETTY IN PERSON!! My husband loves it!! Throws amazingly as well!
The Purple Hammer is the standard by which all other urethane balls are judged and this new version only proves that is correct. I’m not a guy that throws urethane on house shots so this is really only for shorter sport patterns for me, but it is good. Probably 3 or 4 boards more hook than the original Purple but this hits harder than urethane has for me, and it has still got that great controllable urethane shape that lets you control the pocket without overreacting which is valuable on tougher patterns. I’m excited to throw it on even shorter patterns soon but I got the chance to test it and reviewed in on the PBA Don Carter 39 ft pattern and it looked great from multiple angles. I could play up the outside but also moved in a little bit and still looked good where previous urethane would quit on me. It has the smooth shape of urethane but continues through pins more like reactive does, so not as many flat 10 pins that come with urethane normally for me. Expect to see this on TV a ton. https://youtu.be/rkeYdXWhEo4
I drilled THE new Purple Hammer with a 55x4x35 drill. Everyone wants to know what it does compared to the OG Purple, right? Well, this ball is a little stronger, both as it reads the lane, and off the spot. I’ve throw it on house shots and on a shorter pattern for a tournament, and the ball is just best urethane ball on the market. It hits so hard, it’s so versatile, and will look great in the hand of all different types of bowlers.
Hammer has brought back the king of Urethane bowling balls. I threw the new Purple right along side with the old Purple Hammer and they are extremely close. The shape & hitting power are the same with the 2021 version picking up just a hair sooner. When urethane is in play you're gonna want to have this in your arsenal. #nothinghitslikeahammer
