I actually just had a friend send me a pic of it. It looks nice. I would like to know more about this ball myself. I haven't heard of this yet.

It was confirmed by a Hammer staffer on ballreviews that it is an overseas release.

No. Hammer is producing a Vibe Jet Black overseas that is (presumably) the Taboo Jet Black cover on the Vibe core. It was announced with the other recent Hammer announcements and isn't out yet.

Re: vibe jet black?

I have one. It will never be released. I saw a staffer throw one and I loved the reaction he got. so working in a proshop I asked the owner about it and he got me one. I haven't drilled it yet. I will probably drill it on Friday. but there are no numbers on it.

Re: vibe jet black?

If a pro shop buys 4 cold bloods they get 1 jet black vibe for free.

It's a promo deal. The jet black vibe will not be released to the public and is the last vibe hammer is making. Very limited ball.

It is limited to Staffers and a promo deal to pro shops plus overseas. Last Vibe in the series. Thankfully, already got one

Re: vibe jet black?

Its strange they would do such a limited release for their last Vibe. There's so many people out there who not only loved the Vibes, but also loved the Jet Black, you'd think they'd make them available and sell a ton of them. That cover on that core would be such a winner for me. I loved every vine I had, and the Jet Black was my favorite ball.

Re: vibe jet black?

Note to everyone:

It is NOT an overseas release only.


Quite a few people on other sites think this, so I just wanted to clarify.
