Ebonite Fireball Purple/Gold (WWRD 5/16/2024)

May is blooming with releases!

As the Fall leagues wrap up and tournaments are is full swing, we have some new releases that will fill a void or expand a current line up for its respective brand. Depending on your style and the environment you bowl on, you may have a need for cleaner piece or a ball that can be used later in your bowling session. All of these options are budget friendly and give more performance than the price indicates. Here are 5 choices and the WWRD is 5/16/2024, so get your pre-orders in so you can have yours on release day!

All bowling balls (except Polys) have a 2 year warranty from the date of purchase.

Ebonite Fireball Purple/Gold

@15lbs 2.519 .039 DynamiCore/HK22 • 10-16 lbs • Alternate Cores 11-12 lbs & 10-11lbs • Volume - Light to Medium • Core - Fireball • Coverstock - HK22 GB11.2 Pearl (NEW)
Ebonite introduced the Fireball core on 9/21/2023 and those who purchased one found a motion that wasn’t in the line at the time. The new Ebonite Fireball has the same core. There is a different additive package and that’s the GB11.2 Pearl which gives an earlier but same motion than the original. If you have the GB4 Hybrid and it gets too strong due to friction, the Ebonite Fireball Purple/Gold would be a nice transition ball. The proven DynamiCore adds more value to this fantastically priced ball. Bowlers who use lower weights will enjoy the Ebonite Fireball Purple/Gold.

Ebonite Game Breaker 5 (WWRD 3/21/2024)

Marching right in!

There is a lot of info for the releases of late March. Will any be added to your tournament arsenal or be a late league replacement? There will be questions on some of these balls and I’ll try to answer them in the descriptions. As a Hammer Staff member, I will go deeper into the information on the Hammer Black Pearl Urethane and Hammer Effect. FTF will have a Comparison Report with the Effect on our website soon. For all of them the WWRD is 3/21/2024, so get your pre-orders in so you can have yours on release day! All bowling balls (except Polys) have a 2 year warranty from the date of purchase.

Ebonite Game Breaker 5

@15lbs 2.480 .048 DynamiCore • 10-16 lbs.  Alt. Cores 12-13lbs., 10-11lbs. • Volume - Medium to Heavy • Core - Enhanced V2 Coverstock- GB 12.7 Solid
The iconic Ebonite GB series has been without a stronger solid cover for a little while now. While the Game Breaker name continues to be the best value in bowling and the core remains unchanged, it’s the surface that separates them. The GB2 is a staple in many bowlers’ bags, but some needed the same type motion with more traction. Changing to the GB 12.7 formulation provides that traction in oil and more continuation than the previous GB4 Solid. Pair this choice with the GB4 Hybrid and you have a great 1-2 combination for most league patterns. For those who need lighter weights, the cores have been adjusted. In the 10 and 11 pound range, the GB5 will give bowlers a smooth continuous rolling motion than other balls in the weight range. Dynamicore is there for added durability plus the surface can be easily adjusted, if needed.

Ebonite Big Time SE (WWRD 11/16/2023)

November Releases! November brings in 4 new balls and each and has a either new core, cover or both. Two familiar names reemerge from Columbia 300 and Ebonite. Hammer is dropping 2 new pieces; one Upper Mid big cored Sym and one that already is the talk of the industry. Check out the Hammer Envy Gear Promo that ends on 12/31/2023! Core numbers noted below are at 15lbs. All bowling balls (except Polys) have a 2 year warranty from the date of purchase.

 

Ebonite Big Time SE 

 @15lbs 2.508 .054 DynamiCore/HK2212-16 lbs - Alternate cores 12-13 lbsCore - Big Time (NEW) • Coverstock - HK22 GB13.7 Pearl (NEW)
The Big Time look and core shape is back! The HK22 base with the new GB13.7 Pearl additives will give a benchmark shape very similar to the original, but built for today’s conditioners. Having a big core numbered pearl with a dull surface, will help bowlers with medium to heavy volumes. The colors are the same as the original but DynamiCore adds more durability and hitting power. If balls like the GB4 Hybrid and Emerge are travelling too far down the lane, the Big Time SE will be the next step up in ball reaction.

Ebonite Fireball (WWRD 9/21/2023)

Welcome to a new season! This September, Columbia300 adds a ball to their Pro-Speed line. Ebonite brings in a new entry to the Mid Performance level and a Hybrid addition to The One line.

Ebonite Fireball

@15lbs  2.519  .039  DynamiCore/HK22 • Alternate cores 12-13 lbs & 10-11 lbs. • Core- Fireball • Coverstock- HK22 GB10.7 Pearl (NEW)
The Ebonite Fireball will be the step down when high friction lanes transition or if you’re bowling on lighter volumes. Bringing the HK22 base to the mid performance price point will make a lot of bowlers happy. Skid/Flip is the motion (depending on the bowler’s release and environment) that will make a great 1-2 punch with the GB2. Ebonite has modified the light bulb shape to add to the motion created when the cover meets friction. New bowlers can get the same cover with alternate cores in the lighter weights. Competitive bowlers should look at the Fireball to add to their arsenal.

Ebonite The One Encore (WWRD 9/21/2023)

Welcome to a new season! This September, Columbia300 adds a ball to their Pro-Speed line. Ebonite brings in a new entry to the Mid Performance level and a Hybrid addition to The One line.

Ebonite The One Encore

@15lbs  2.466  .056  .027 DynamiCore/D.O.T./HK22 • Alternate cores 12-13 lbs.
The One Remix was Ebonite’s biggest selling ball from last season. It’s a solid (without HK22) and produced a big back end motion. So adding the HK22 base with a Hybrid additive package is the next level to get a quicker response to friction. Medium to heavy volumes is where The One Encore will shine, with a price point lower than most High Performance ball.

Ebonite The One Remix (WWRD 9/23/2022)

 

Ebonite The One Remix 12-16 lbs. (@15 lbs  2.466  .056  .027  DynamiCore/D.O.T. • Alternate core 12-13 lbs)

One of the most popular Ebonite balls has returned! Same great Centrex core now with DynamiCore/D.O.T., a stronger coverstock (GB 14.4 Solid) will take care of medium to heavy oil volumes. A quick look at the core numbers screams strong. Although it comes shiny, you can adjust the cover to suit your needs. Look for a good length and strong backend reaction on volumes it is designed for or if you are speed dominate. The eye appealing colors of Teal/Purple/Violet will be noticed right away on the lanes.
