BALL:
15lb 3oz
PIN 2-3"
3.75oz Top Wt.

LAYOUT:
PIN under ring.
CG above palm stacked.
MB Down and near thumb hole.
No extra hole

REVIEW:
This ball out of the box provides length with a strong back end. With this layout, the ball has a bit of an early movement. I wanted the ball to start up sooner and it did as expected. The ball is very predictable and that's a quality I look for. I have a Source with the PIN over the bridge with similar CG and MB positioning and I wanted something different here. If you like the reaction of the Source but sometimes are looking for an earlier read for the fresh, then this is the ball to own. With the out of box finish I was forced too close to the dry since it comes polished. Because of this, I felt a light scuff to the entire cover by hand with a new 3000 abralon pad would do the trick. With the high flare and the light scuff I was able to step into the oil more and watch this ball do its magic. This ball hits just as hard as the Source and previous Missions. I have this ball about 2/3 and 1/2 left of the Source on a 41' THS.
