The Scorpion has been an excellent release for Hammer and continues to do well in the market; bowlers love the amount of hook they get from a mid-performance ball. The new Scorpion Sting complements the original Scorpion, giving bowlers a shiny mid-performance ball to go to when the oil starts to go away, and stronger balls are too much. We didn’t go the traditional route and only update the cover to extend the series; we also modified the core to increase the RG and differential to ensure the Scorpion Sting has a more continuous backend. The Symtex Pearl cover with high gloss provides great length and a strong change of direction; the core and cover combination makes this ball excellent on medium conditions. Just like the original, the Scorpion Sting offers a lot of performance for the money, and let’s not forget that looks matter, and this one looks fantastic too!
