The Perfect Fit Plan

Ordering a perfect-fitting pair of shoes online can be a real challenge! Bowling shoes may not fit the same as street shoes or sneakers. Different manufacturers and different materials mean different cutting styles and fits. Heels too loose? Toes too tight? Wouldn’t it be great if you could just send those shoes back at no cost and get the next size up or down?

Of course, you can always send unused shoes back, but the cost of shipping can really add up! A second trip back and forth the country can easily cost you $30-$40 before your feet are finally snug.

That’s why we offer the Perfect Fit Plan. When you purchase the plan together with your shoes, you are guaranteed the perfect fit without paying any additional shipping charges. We will issue you a shipping label to send your shoes back and have the correct ones delivered to you free of charge using FedEx Ground Service (continental US residents only).

Exchange Policy: Shoes must be returned in new condition with no visible wear. Shoes must be returned with original packaging protected by an outer box. Claims must be within 10 days of delivery. This offer is only applicable for 1 exchange. Issuing a shipping label does not mean the package will be picked up from your home/office. You will need to drop the package off at your local FedEx shipping location.

Drilling Insurance (optional) $9.95

We will replace your bowling ball free of charge if it cracks during drilling by a pro shop. Ball drillers are not held liable and manufacturers don't typically cover cracking during drilling.

Insurance Details:
  • Ball must be drilled within 10 days of delivery.
  • Drilling Insurance must be purchased at the same time the ball is purchased.
  • Drilling Insurance is only available to residents living in the Contiguous U.S.
  • Ball must be returned to our location for inspection along with a receipt for proof of drilling (we pay freight back to you).
  • If ball is being drilled by us, drilling insurance is NOT required.

The overall strength of the Dark Legend makes it slightly stronger than the much sought after Black Widow Limited.

Customer Reviews

drives like a truck Review by paulie
bought this for my son who has a wide hook and a lot of rotation, thought it mite be too much ball but it was smooth through the lane and drove like a truck through the pocket, first night with the new ball he threw his first 800 series. awesome ball (Posted on 3/1/2016)
Versatile Legend Ball from Hammer Review by Plowboy300
The Dark Legend reminds me very much of the original Black Widow ball motion. The Dark Legend fits in between the Red Legend Solid & original Red Legend where it is still clean through the front part of the lane and provides a smooth, yet strong motion in the backends. For me, this ball is about 3-4 boards weaker overall than the Red Legend Solid, but offers a bigger backend motion and is about 3-4 boards stronger than the Red Legend Pearl. This ball will work well with all styles of bowlers and offer a strong backend continuous motion for when you need more angle down the lane.

With the new 3 year warrantee that Hammer provides for this ball, this is the BEST bang for your buck!

I think this ball will be a must have ball for those that are looking for something similar to the original Black Widow or a versatile ball for the tournament patterns. This ball has a great motion that does not stop rolling in the backend – it really continues through the pin deck! Very versatile ball… You will be impressed!
