I bought this head for my son who is a huge fan of Tucker Durkin. It strung up nice with a high pocket. My son doesn't like a lot of whip, which limits him to mid pockets on his triumph, but was able to do the high pocket on the Hammer 500 with similar whip. The speed scoop is nice and protects the top strings from rub and wear damage.Pros:
He still prefers the flatter scoop of the triumph, but this head is probably a little stiffer.
He used it in three very hot summer tournaments with no issues on warping (he warped two Tank's in three tournaments last summer).
slightly more pinching versus triumph or original hammer
flatten the scoop even more like Brine Edge and Triumph.
