I've seen Hammers be quicker than both swords and spears. I'm lost and confused.

It is weird. I'm a Hammer user and I'll be the first to admit on numerous occasion they beat out Spears.

It's like you would think Hammers do more damage than Swords but it's actually reverse.

Well, I know you all are experienced, and are still baffled by this. I'm gonna go out back, and I expect to swing a sludge hammer quicker than a pole.

on several ocassions i've run into a good hammer user who dominates/frustrates me.  

 

first, they're good players who move & defend very well.  but the frustrating part is their hammer attacks always land first and i rarely get away without an L2.  

 

i've tried all the hammers and never feel like i'm the one dishing it out like that.

Try Ares, with the Gladiator Hammer or the Champion hammer...Those babies are the law of hammers,

 lots of nice combos there.

 

Even more if you use the object (i dont remember the name) wich gives you Atk Speed.

That would be "sledge" hammer, my friend.

Nothing in this game makes sense as far as the speed of attacks that simply should just not be so fast, especially hammers.

^Yah, apologies. I was in class, couldn't "take my time".

But yes, I don't understand the startup speeds at all.
