This is the 25th anniversary of the 3-D Offset, and we are excited to pay tribute to one of the greatest balls ever. The Hammer 3-D Offset offered new technology and outstanding performance. We’ve taken a lot of time and effort to introduce a ball worthy of the same name. We’ve strategically recreated this ball to remind you of the original while excelling on today’s conditions.
We started with the core shape, creating a single density inner core with the same shape as the original. The original was a thick-shell ball, and we modified today’s version with a carbon fiber outer core. These modifications create more dynamic core numbers for increased ball motion potential and a durable, harder-hitting product. We’ve also made this a D.O.T. ball which further increases durability and eliminates layout and drilling restrictions.
Optimal Performance for Today's Conditions
The ball’s appearance is almost identical to the 3-D Offset from 25-years ago. The Blazing Violet stands out as much today as it did then, and we’ve branded it the same way with yellow Hammer logos on the right and left side and the orange 3-D Offset logo above the pin, or D.O.T. in this case. A minimal amount of Pearl was added to the Neoflex 25 cover to create optimal performance for today’s conditions. The new 3-D Offset is finished at 2000 Siaair, yet it easily gets through the front of the lane and has a strong and continuous move throughout the backend and pin deck.

A truly innovative approach to bowling ball construction, DOT pins the low RG axis on the opposite side of the ball. This removes the weak spot in the drilling area, greatly reducing the possibility for cracking and providing for a wider range of layouts. The DOT manufacturing process marks the low RG axis with a small circle engraving.Learn More about Durable Optimization Technology
