This is the follow up to the Aura and the change to a solid reactive coverstock makes it a monster. The core remains the same as the Aura, but the 2000 SiaAir finished Optimum Hook Solid cover provides much more hook than its predecessor.

This ball was best for all three testers on our heavy test pattern. The Paranormal Aura provided each tester with much more area to hit on this pattern than the Aura. Each tester was able to chase the pattern left as the oil started to go away and none of them saw any loss of hook
