The Method joins the Magnitude 055 and Magnitude 035 Pearl in the High performance line, which falls just beneath their Pro performance line.

He was also able to find a good reaction playing straight up the 15 board, with his Method seeming to fade the entire way down the lane right into the pocket. Even when he played this very direct line, his pin carry was very good. He
