If you loved the original Scandal then you will really love the Hammer Scandal/S. This ball uses the Hybrid CFI coverstock that is finished with a 500/2000 Abralon pad to give this ball the same strong mid-lane motion as the original but with more reaction on the backend. This bowling ball is Carbon Fiber Infused! Carbon fiber is one of the toughest materials on earth. Hammer decided to add this material to the inner core of this ball for added strength and durability allowing them to offer an incredible 3 year warranty.
